On today's Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz talked about some 'Magic Potions" for weight loss and energy. Two of these supplements were Bee Pollen and L-Lysine. He talked about others including Brewer’s Yeast, Nettle Tea, an Ugli Fruit Energy Elixir, Yeast Flakes and Kelp Noodles as well.

Dr Oz was joined by an audience member who stated that she hasn’t had much energy since high school. (Didn’t you love it when Dr Oz stated, “It’s been THAT long since you’ve had energy?”) She told Doctor Oz that she tried to exercise and eat healthy in order to keep her energy up but she needed an extra boost. Check out the miracle cures below to get your energy back.

What is L-Lysine?

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, meaning your body needs it every day. L-lysine can help support immune response and help manage stress. Solaray uses only 100% free form L-lysine because it contains no protein fragments commonly found in protein concentrates. Advanced zinc chelate is added for optimum bioavailability.

L-Lysine Benefits

-Improves energy
-helps with circulations

L-Lysine is an important and indispensable component of proteins.  It promotes normal growth and development by increasing collagen formation.  It supports the production of other proteins like enzymes, antibodies, and hormones.  It promotes bone health by increasing calcium absorption and helps aid in weight reduction.  L-lysine supplements are often taken by vegans who do not eat food products containing animal protein, athletes who are highly active and bodybuilders who want more muscle mass.
