Lysine is an amino acid (protein) that helps the body absorb calcium; however, there are no conclusive studies that Lysine helps osteoporosis in humans. Lysine is very abundant in our food sources if you are not a vegan vegetarian. Food sources rich in protein are good sources of Lysine such as meats (red meat, pork, and poultry), cheese, some fish (cod and sardines), nuts, eggs, tofu, beans and legumes, and dairy products. With osteoporosis it is recommended to increase calcium food intake and possible calcium supplements. Calcium is in all dairy products (cheese, yogurt, pudding, and ice cream), orange juice fortified with calcium, tofu, almonds, beans/legumes, dark green vegetables (kale, broccoli, spinach), and eggs. Weight baring exercise (walking, running) helps with osteoporosis, too. Hoped this helped you.
