Lysine - important to produce collagen, elastin, energy and immune function. Major part in protein synthesis, hormone and enzyme production. Helps with the absorption of calcium.
Arginine - contributes to wound healing. Helps kidneys remove waste products. Helps maintain immune and hormone function. Dilates and relaxes the arteries.
