Reverse the ageing process, lose weight, reduce anxiety, heal faster, and improve athletic performance. This is not the ultimate wish list– this is the reality of Lysine. Lysine is one of the many affordable and beneficial amino acid injectables offered at the New Jersey and Philadelphia offices of Dr. Robert Fortino, the area’s leading medical weight loss and lifestyle doctor. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Fortino’s research and evidence prove that Lysine is essential in order to achieve overall health.

Lysine is an amino acid– or a building block of protein– which the human body requires but does not make naturally. It may be acquired through diet, but Lysine can be obtained more efficiently and quickly via injectables.

Lysine has the power to slow the ageing process in both bones and skin. Since Lysine increases calcium absorption in the gut and helps the kidneys hold on to the mineral, it controls where calcium is transported in the body and reduces the loss of calcium through the urine– this also means reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Without lysine, or enough lysine, bones can weaken and the body’s own collagen production slows down. Collagen keeps skin looking firm and young, while also supporting the growth and health of hair. Lysine is essential for the formation of collagen protein and for preventing age-related conditions like wrinkles and hair loss. As we age, we do not want to lose collagen, but we may want to lose weight– lysine aids in that process too.

Lysine combines with other amino acids in the body to form carnitine: a natural fat burner. Fatty acids can then be transported quickly and with ease across cells to be burned for energy which aids in weight loss.

Cortisol is produced in our body when we feel stressed; high cortisol levels result in weight gain in the abdominal area, typically called “belly fat.” Lysine has the power to block the cortisol hormone, effectively reducing this visceral fat. High cortisol levels in our bodies also cause anxiety. Lysine’s ability to block cortisol, also allows anxiety to be reduced, and new research indicates that it may even help improve symptoms in people with schizophrenia.

Stress can cause the HSV-1virus to multiply: herpes simplex type 1. This virus is responsible for triggering cold sores, however, lysine has the ability to block these receptors too. As a result, lysine supplements may reduce the number, severity, and frequency of cold sore outbreaks. Healing cold sores is only a fraction of lysine’s healing power. Because lysine promotes the formation of new blood vessels and acts as a natural, internal binding agent it increases the number of new cells at the site of a wound thereby speeding up the wound healing process in the body.

Increasing healthy blood flow through new blood vessels also increases the amount of oxygen our active muscles receive. The more oxygen muscles receive, the more quickly athletes and bodybuilders will heal after intense workouts. This is yet another benefit of a lysine injectable. Athletes and bodybuilders, in particular, can benefit from lysine because it reduces the rate of the body’s catabolic state: a time period where mass and muscle is lost. Lysine reverses that process– with ample lysine reserves, the body goes into an anabolic state: a time period where growth and recovery of tissue and muscle occurs.

Whether you’re in search of the natural fountain of youth, natural approaches to weight loss, or natural remedies for ailments and injuries– lysine is the answer.
