Overview

Lysine, an essential amino acid, is one of the building blocks of protein according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, and has the ability to both convert fatty acids into energy and lower cholesterol levels. Lysine can be consumed directly through foods such as meat, cheese, nuts, eggs and beans. You can also find lysine in supplement form.

Consult your physician before attempting to treat any condition with lysine.
