Sufficient nutrition is fundamental to maintaining health. Everyone has different nutritional requirements, but one thing is universal, protein is an essential requirement for the human body, allowing for growth and maintenance of a healthy body. 

Amino Acids are the building blocks of proteins> These are essential for many of the bodies functions including maintaining a healthy immune system and muscle function. Our bodies naturally produce some amino acids and others can be sourced from your diet in food such as:

  • Legumes and Bean
  • Fish
  • Turkey
  • Eggs
  • Quinoa

When returning to training and exercise, it is important to give your body the nutrients it needs, such as Amino Acids. With the busy and active lifestyles so many Irish Men lead, it can be helpful to take these Amino Acids in Supplement form.

L-Lysine is one of the main contributors to muscle tissue and athlete’s often supplement this Amino Acid to contribute to building lean mass, aiding in sports injury recovery and maintaining muscle health. L-Lysine also aids in the production of Collagen, which is one of the major components of the skin, ligaments, tendons and bones. As we age, the collagen our body can produce naturally decreases. Supplementation with L-Lysine may aid in its production which means not only may L-Lysine help to repair muscle tissues, it may also help to keep your skin looking young and healthy!
