Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) Contain Lysine (Essential Amino Acid)

(*) See References and Disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contain lysine that has been shown to slow the replication of the herpes simplex virus and may have other anti-viral properties as well(1*).

Lysine is required to synthesize carnitine, which helps convert fatty acids to energy(2*). Lysine also assists in the formation of collagen(3*), the fibrous protein that forms the connective tissue, cartilage, and bone. 

Lysine helps the body absorb calcium and aids in the production of enzymes, hormones, and some immune system cells(4*). In addition, lysine contributes to helping control cholesterol levels(5*). It may help with reproductive system problems, tiredness, irritability, inability to concentrate, slow growth, bloodshot eyes, anemia, and hair loss(6*).

Sources of Lysine

Dairy products, Legumes (such as beans, peas & lentils), Red Meat, Fish, and our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear).
