Banana-bana bo-bana ...

Let's peel back the impressive health benefits of L-Lysine


I know what you're thinking. What's a banana got to do with L-Lysine?

Stay with me ...

You see, Lysine is a building block for protein. It’s an essential amino acid but because your body cannot make it, you need to obtain it from food ... and, yes, that's where the banana comes in. Bananas are a familiar and nutritious tropical fruit suitable for eating on-the-go ... and if you've been in the studio with me lately, you likely have seen me eating a banana or two. (I might just be turning into a monkey.)

Including bananas in your diet means you take in a variety of vitamins, minerals and amino acids -- including lysine. While high-protein foods such as poultry or seafood is another great choice for lysine, they don't do so well in the studio.

But, is a banana enough?

If you’re looking to truly support your health, and answered no, you're right. Like many foods (especially nowadays) we simply don't get the bang we use to back in the day. That's the purpose of most supplements.

Here are 5 impressive health benefits of lysine:

  1. Helps to maintain a healthy immune system

  2. Supports the growth and maintenance of healthy skin, bone and tissue

  3. Promotes the absorption of calcium and iron

  4. Is essential in the production of collagen and elastin

  5. Aids in the synthesis of carnitine, which is required for fat metabolism

Insider's tip? Combine L-Lysine with Micro-C (another Vimergy product) -- together they create a powerful, healthy immune supporting duo.
