Lysine is a basic [alkaline] amino acid…, can take part in the production of energy: It is both a ketogenic and glucogenic amino acid, i.e. it participates in the formation of glucose and glycogen!

«Carnitine is a vitamin-like compound responsible for the transport of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) units into the energy production cells: mitochondria. Carnitine can be synthesised by the body, starting from Lysine … with the help of another essential amino acid, methionine, of three vitamins (C, B3, B6) and Iron » [2].  

«Oral supplementation of Lysine has proven to be able to decrease the frequency and severity of dermatologic manifestations of Herpes Simplex. The hypothesised mechanism of action is that Lysine is incorporated into the virus capsid instead of arginine, determining viral inactivation. Lysine is usually taken at low doses as a preventive and at higher doses at the symptoms that correspond to the time of increased viral replication » [3].
