Lysine for bone health

Lysine plays an important role in bone health and bone quality and actually helps calcium absorption and also helps the formation of collagen. A deficiency of dietary lysine can cause kidney stones (because of a lack of calcium absorption). Lysine deficiency also causes fatigue, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, agitation, bloodshot eyes, slow growth, anemia, and reproductive disorders. Vegetarians who follow a macrobiotic diet and athletes involved in frequent vigorous exercise are at a greater risk of lysine deficiencies. Animal proteins are the best source for lysine but legumes like beans, peas, and lentils have some lysine in them.

Strong bones rock!
