Lysine is an essential amino acid. It can be found naturally in beans, dairy, and animal protein but the bioavailability decreases many food preparation methods . Lysine was first isolated from casein in 1889, and was eventually made available for supplementation in the 20th century . L-Lysine is important for many crucial functions including; calcium absorption, production of carnitine, and the formation collagen and muscles .
