Lysine: The Amino Acid that Boosts your Immune System

For the new members of our Senyia community, we have been talking about the essential amino acids in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. There are 20 amino acids in the body and 9 of them are essential. Senyia Moringa has 18 of the 20 amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids. So far we have written about Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine. This week we will cover Lysine.  

Lysine supports calcium absorption and bone development. Lysine also helps the production of antibodies boosting the immune system. “Lysine also aids in the production of antibodies (protective proteins of the immune system), hormones and enzymes, in skin maintenance and formation, and tissue repair.”-  Miracle Tree, by Monica Marcus. Since Lysine plays an important role in the production of antibodies, Lysine helps combat viruses such as herpes.  These are a few reasons why the daily consumption of Lysine contained in the Moringa leaves is so important.

How Much Lysine Does a Person Need to Take?

According to Marcus, the recommended dosage of Lysine for adults is 58 mg. Senyia Moringa contains 66 mg of Lysine per gram. Moringa leaves are very rich in amino acids especially Lysine.  A teaspoon of Senyia Moringa Powder contains 165 mg of Lysine. Only one teaspoon of Senyia Moringa Powder will not only cover your recommended dosage but also will exceed it.

Another option that Senyia offers to cover your recommended daily dosage of Lysine is with Senyia Capsules. Two Senyia Capsules contains 82.5 of Lysine which covers the daily dosage. Either is the powder or the Capsule is a good choice to supplement your diet.

Which Plant-Based Protein Contains More Lysine?

Another famous alternative of protein is Soy, however, Soy protein does not have enough nutrients for complete nutrition. Soy protein contains 63 mg per gram of Lysine. Moringa contains 66 mg per gram of Lysine.  Moringa is the only plant-based protein that contains high levels of Lysine and all 9 essential amino acids.
