Lysine is an amino acid that is used to treat the complications caused by herpes virus. It is an amino acid that though essential for health and nutrition, cannot be produced by human body. Hence it has to be taken in the form of diet supplements. It is usually administered orally and in some cases it can be applied directly on the skin.

While how Lysine helps in treating herpes infection is not exactly known, it is speculated that it works by preventing the replication of the herpes virus. While it is generally safe to take Lysine, if it is taken in very high doses it may lead to complications like nausea, Diarrhea, pain in the abdomen, kidney failure. However the occurrence of these complications is extremely rare.

Additionally, Lysine increases the absorption of calcium into the body. Thus you should avoid taking any additional calcium supplements with it as this may increase the concentration of calcium in the body above what is required and can lead to health complications. It also helps in increasing the secretion of insulin and thus is sometimes used in the treatment of diabetes as well. Apart from this it has also been scientifically proven to cure cold sores as well as reduce anxiety and hypertension

I have hypothyroid problem and I am bodybuilder. I all so take bodybuilding supplements.
Is l-carnitine good for me?
Hi Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is necessary to achieve a strict control of TSH values, that is maintain around 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. If the supplements are only some protein products, then it is fine. There should be no banned substances. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, Premature greying of hair is dependent upon many factors such as heredity, lifestyle, sudden diet changes and stress. It also occurs if you suffer from medical conditions such as anaemia, hypothyroidism, tuberous sclerosis or neurofibromatosis. The main reason for hair greying is loss of pigmentation melanin from the hair follicles. While there are many specialised white hair solution products available, it is best to treat this problem with effective home remedies for grey hair that have absolutely no side effects. 1. Curry Leaves & Coconut Oil Massage - You’ve know curry leaves to add taste to your food. Now see how they revitalize your hair at a root level. Curry leaves contain Vitamin B which restores the natural colour pigment in the hair follicles and also prevents further greying of hair. Curry leaves also nourish the hair with essential nutrients and heal damaged roots. Being a rich source of beta-carotene, it stimulates hair growth and prevents hair fall. Coconut oil is nature’s best conditioner for dry, rough hair and makes it lustrous and healthy. So when the two come together, it’s a perfect match. 2. Curry Leaves & Buttermilk - Great for people with oily hair who balk at the thought of adding more oil to their hair, buttermilk is a rich source of lactic acid and effective in making hair smooth and manageable. Ingredients: / Curry leaves – handful / Buttermilk-1/4th cup - Directions for using curry leaves and buttermilk to prevent further graying of hair: / Crush the curry leaves finely and add to the buttermilk to form a smooth paste. / Apply as a hair pack on scalp ensuring that the hair strands are covered from root to tip. / After 30 minutes, wash off with a mild herbal shampoo. 3. Amla & Fenugreek Pack - Amla being a rich source of vitamin C is an ancient remedy for reversing greying, treating hair problems and improving hair health. Fenugreek or methi is loaded with vitamin C, iron, potassium, lysine, L-tryptophan and alkaloids that benefit hair by preventing premature greying and hair fall, and scalp dryness which causes dandruff. Ingredients: / Dried Amla – 5 to 6 pieces / Fenugreek – 1 tbsp / Coconut Oil – ½ cup - Directions for using amla and fenugreek pack for reducing grey hair occurrence: / Powder the fenugreek seeds until smoothand set aside. / Heat the oil, add the amla pieces to it and boil for 5-6 minutes. / Now add the fenugreek powder and boil for another minute. / Remove from flame, cool and strain. / Apply on scalp and hair before going to bed. / Wash off with a mild herbal shampoo in the morning. 4. Black Tea Massage - Black tea is loaded with antioxidants and caffeine. It is an effective hair growth stimulant and improves strength and elasticity of the hair strands which prevents brittleness and breakage. It adds a natural dark hue to hair. It is a perfect home remedy to prevent greying of hair as well as strengthen them. - Ingredients: / Black Tea Powder – 2 tbsp / Salt – 1 tsp - Directions for massaging with black tea to reduce white hair: / Boil 2 tablespoons of black tea in 1 teaspoon of salt in water for 2 minutes. / Remove, cool and strain. Use this to wash or rinse hair but do not use any shampoo. / Let it dry naturally. / Repeat it 2 to 3 times per week for best results. 5. Onion & Lemon Juice Pack - Colouring your hair regularly? Research shows that deficiency of antioxidant catalase and deposition of hydrogen peroxide in the hair roots are the two chief reasons for premature hair greying. Onion juice boosts up the level of catalase, thus restoring the natural colour of the hair strands. Lemon juice adds a healthy shine to hair and prevents excessive oiliness of hair. - Ingredients: / Onion Juice – 3 tsps / Lemon Juice – 2 tsps - Directions for using this hair pack to reverse greying of hair: / Mix both juices in a bowl and apply on scalp and hair evenly. / After 30 minutes, wash off with a mild herbal shampoo. / Repeat 4-5 times a week for 2 weeks. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Does L Carnitine can be used for fat loss? Please give your views on it. Is this the myth or reality.

Does L Carnitine can be used for fat loss? Please give your views on it. Is this the myth or reality.
Supplements and energy drinks that contain L-carnitine claim to be metabolism boosters that can help you shed weight and increase your athletic performance. However, there may not be enough scientific data to back up these claims. Read on to find out why. A meaty subject The word “carnitine” comes from the Latin word for flesh: “carnis,” which is also the root of the word “carnivore.” Your liver and kidneys make L-carnitine from two amino acids, lysine and methionine, so it isn’t required in your diet. L-carnitine is stored in your skeletal muscles, brain, and heart. In men, L-carnitine is also stored in sperm. This compound plays an important role in your body, escorting long-chain fatty acids to your cells’ mitochondria, where they produce energy. L-carnitine also ushers toxic byproducts of energy production out of your cells, so they don’t build up. The Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health states that healthy adults and children don’t need to take L-carnitine supplements except for specific medical or genetic conditions.

Addition of L-lysine to iron supplementation resulted in a significant increase in serum ferritin concentration in some women with chronic hair loss (telogen effluvium) who failed to respond to iron supplementation alone.Other than anemia, low ferritin may also indicate hypothyroidism, vitamin C deficient Chronic intestinal bleeding in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may exceed the amount of iron that can be absorbed from the diet, resulting in a negative iron balance . So also have to check thyroid levels and take all vitamins along with iron

Is Lcaritine bad for your body. I am planning to use carni q for fat loss. I am 28 years old female.
L-carnitine is a natural substance found in food. However, it is not considered an essential nutrient because the body can make it from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-carnitine is the nutrient that transports fatty acids to the mitochondria for use as a fuel source and research shows that muscle carnitine levels are rapidly depleted during exercise, even moderate exercise. A number of published studies on athletes have shown that l-carnitine supplementation supports exercise performance. Athletes need more carnitine than they are capable of producing endogenously (inside the body). L-carnitine may be particularly important during periods of intense exercise as it may help to reduce post-exercise lactic acid accumulation and may increase maximal work output. It may also preserve muscle glycogen levels during workouts. As reported in the majority of studies, an increase in maximal oxygen consumption and a lowering of the respiratory quotient indicate that dietary l-carnitine has the potential to stimulate lipid metabolism (e.g. the utilization of fatty acids for fuel). Treatment with l-carnitine has also been shown to induce a significant post-exercise decrease in plasma lactate, which is formed and used continuously under fully aerobic conditions. Data from preliminary studies have indicated that l-carnitine supplementation can attenuate the deleterious effects of hypoxic (low oxygen) training and speed up recovery from exercise stress

10 Amazing Benefits of Eating Quinoa!

Quinoa is considered to be one of the world's healthiest foods. It is gluten free and high in protein. It is among the few plants which contain all 9 essential amino acids. Quinoa is also rich in fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin E, vitamin B and other beneficial antioxidants.

Here are 10 health benefits of quinoa:

  1. Quinoa comes in red, white and black colors. It is an edible seed and becoming very trendy among the people who are health conscious. It is loaded with the richness of many important nutrients. There are traces of nutrients present which are very healthy for the body These include flavonoids which are basically the plant antioxidants which have beneficial effects on the health. Quercetin and Kaempferol are flavonoids and are found in large amounts in quinoa. Both these molecules have anti viral, anti inflammatory, anti cancer and anti depressants effects.
  2. Very high in fiber, much higher than most grains. It is high in fiber, but boiled quinoa has less fiber in it as it is absorbed by the water. It has almost 17-27 grams of fiber per cup.
  3. Gluten free and perfect for people with gluten intolerance. A gluten free diet is considered to be healthy as long as the starches are not refined as this causes a problem. If gluten foods with refined sugars are consumed they are equal to consuming junk food. Quinoa is a natural gluten free product and is used in gluten free recipes. This increases the nutrient value and the antioxidants of the gluten diet.
  4. Amino acids make up the protein. Some of these amino acids are known as essential as we need to get them through diet. Many plant foods are deficient in some essential amino acids like lysine. But quinoa is an exception, as it contains all the nine amino acids.
  5. The glycemic index is usually done to measure the blood sugar levels. On eating foods high in glycemic index, it can stimulate the hunger and leads to obesity. The glycemic index of quinoa is 53 which is low.
  6. Certain nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc and (for women) irons go missing from the diet. Quinoa is very high in all these minerals, especially magnesium.
  7. Quinoa can lower blood sugar and triglyceride level thus, improving metabolic health.
  8. Quinoa appears to be very high in antioxidants, which are increased even further after the seeds are sprouted.
  9. Helps in losing weight as quinoa is high in fiber, protein and has a low glycemic index.
  10. Quinoa is very easy to include in diet.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Health Benefits Of Quinoa

1. Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. It is a complete protein containing all nine essential amino acids.

2. Quinoa contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains. Fiber is most widely known to relieve constipation. It also helps to prevent heart disease by reducing high blood pressure and diabetes. Fiber lowers cholesterol and glucose levels, may lower your risk of developing hemorrhoids and may help you to lose weight as it takes a longer time to chew than does other foods because it makes you feel fuller for longer and is less “energy dense” which means it has fewer calories for the same volume of food.
3. Quinoa contains iron. Iron helps keep our red blood cells healthy and is the basis of hemoglobin formation. Iron carries oxygen from one cell to another and supplies oxygen to our muscles to aid in their contraction. Iron also increases brain function because the brain takes in about 20% of our blood oxygen. There are many benefits of iron some more of which include neurotransmitter synthesis, regulation of body temperature, aids enzyme activity and energy metabolism.

4. Quinoa contains lysine. Lysine is mainly essential for tissue growth and repair.

5. Quinoa is rich in magnesium. Magnesium helps to relax blood vessels and thereby to alleviate migraines. Magnesium also may reduce type 2 diabetes by promoting healthy blood sugar control. Other health benefits of magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the formation of healthy bones and teeth.

6. Quinoa is high in riboflavin (b2). B2 improves energy metabolism within brain and muscle cells and is known to help create proper energy production in cells.

7. Quinoa has a high content of manganese. Manganese is an antioxidant, which helps to prevent damage of mitochondria during energy production as well as to protect red blood cells and other cells from injury by free radicals.

Reasons To Eat Walnuts Daily

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai

Walnuts belong to the tree nut family, along with brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, and pistachios. Each has its own unique nutritional profile.

One-quarter cup of walnuts, for instance, provides more than 100 percent of the daily recommended value of plant-based omega-3 fats, along with high amounts of copper, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin. Some of the most exciting research about walnuts includes:

1. Cancer-fighting properties

Walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer, but breast cancer as well. In one study, mice that ate the human equivalent of 2.4 ounces of whole walnuts for 18 weeks had significantly smaller and slower-growing prostate tumors compared to the control group that consumed the same amount of fat but from other sources.

Overall the whole walnut diet reduced prostate cancer growth by 30 to 40 percent. According to another study on mice, the human equivalent of just two handfuls of walnuts a day cut breast cancer risk in half, and slowed tumor growth by 50 percent as well. 1

2. Heart health

Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors.

If you struggle with herpes, you may want to avoid or limit walnuts, as high levels of arginine can deplete the amino acid lysine, which can trigger herpes recurrences.

Walnuts also contain the plant-based omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ala), which is anti-inflammatory and may prevent the formation of pathological blood clots. Research shows that people who eat a diet high in ala are less likely to have a fatal heart attack and have a nearly 50 percent lower risk of sudden cardiac death. 2

Eating just four walnuts a day has been shown to significantly raise blood levels of heart-healthy ala, 3 and walnut consumption supports healthful cholesterol levels.

Separate research showed that eating just one ounce of walnuts a day may decrease cardiovascular risk, 4 and among those at high cardiovascular risk, increased frequency of nut consumption significantly lowers the risk of death. 5

3. Rare and powerful antioxidants

Antioxidants are crucial to your health, as they are believed to help control how fast you age by combating free radicals, which are at the heart of age-related deterioration.

Walnuts contain several unique and powerful antioxidants that are available in only a few commonly eaten foods. This includes the quinone juglone, the tannin tellimagrandin, and the flavonol morin. 6

Walnuts contain antioxidants that are so powerful at free-radical scavenging that researchers called them" remarkable" 7 and research has shown that walnut polyphenols may help prevent chemically-induced liver damage. 8

In another study, researchers found that nuts, especially walnuts, have potent antioxidant powers. Walnut polyphenols had the best efficacy among the nuts tested and also the highest lipoprotein-bound antioxidant activity. The researchers concluded: 9

" nuts are high in polyphenol antioxidants which by binding to lipoproteins would inhibit oxidative processes that lead to atherosclerosis in vivo. In human supplementation studies nuts have been shown to improve the lipid profile, increase endothelial function and reduce inflammation, all without causing weight gain"

4. Weight control

Adding healthful amounts of nuts such as walnuts to your diet can help you to maintain your ideal weight over time. In one review of 31 trials, those whose diets included extra nuts or nuts substituted for other foods lost about 1.4 extra pounds and half an inch from their waists. 10 eating walnuts is also associated with increased satiety after just three days. 11

5. Improved reproductive health in men

One of the lesser-known benefits of walnuts is their impact on male fertility. Among men who consume a western-style diet, adding 75 grams (a bit over one-half cup) of walnuts daily significantly improved sperm quality, including vitality, motility, and morphology. 12

6. Brain health

Walnuts contain a number of neuroprotective compounds, including vitamin e, folate, melatonin, omega-3 fats, and antioxidants. Research shows walnut consumption may support brain health, including increasing inferential reasoning in young adults. 13

One study also found that consuming high-antioxidant foods like walnuts" can decrease the enhanced vulnerability to oxidative stress that occurs in aging" increase health span" and also" enhance cognitive and motor function in aging" 14

7. Diabetes

The beneficial dietary fat in walnuts has been shown to improve metabolic parameters in people with type 2 diabetes. Overweight adults with type 2 diabetes who ate one-quarter cup of walnuts daily had significant reductions in fasting insulin levels compared to those who did not, and the benefit was achieved in the first three months. 15.

Poultry Feed Formulation

Poultry Feed Formulation

Formulation of 50 kg bag (broiler feed)

Broilers have different feed requirements in terms of energy, proteins, and minerals during different stages of their growth.Therefore, it is important that farmers adapt feed rations to these requirements for maximum production. Young broilers have a high protein requirement for the development of muscles, feathers, etc. As the broilers grow, their energy requirements for the deposit of fat increase and their protein requirements decrease. They require high protein content in their starter rations than in the grower and finisher rations. Broilers should have a feed that has between 22 – 24 per cent digestible crude protein, DCP.


The following guidelines can help the farmer to make the right feed at each stage of growth:

  • 7.2kg of whole maize
  • 11.9kg of maize germ
  • 9.5kg of wheat pollard
  • 7.2kg wheat bran
  • 4.3kg of cotton seed cake
  • 3.4kg of sunflower cake
  • 2.1kg of fishmeal
  • 1.4kg of lime
  • 2.5kg of soya meal
  • 45g of bone meal
  • 10g of grower PMX
  • 5g of salt
  • 5g of coccidiostat 
  •  5g of Zincbacitrach

 Broiler starter feed (1-4 weeks)

  • 28.6kg of whole maize
  • 8.6kg of fishmeal
  • 10kg of soya bean meal
  • 2.9kg of lime
  • 70g of premix

Amino acids to add

  •  35g of lysine
  •  35g of threonine

Preparing of layers chick mash (1-4 weeks)

chicks require feed with Digestible Crude Protein (DCP) of between 18 to 20 per cent. Amino acids are important nutrients in all feeds in order to make a complete feed for all animals. For hybrid chickens, the addition of amino acids is very important to maintain a balanced diet for fast growth

(50 kg bag of chick mash)

  • 22.5kg of whole maize
  • 6.5kg of wheat bran,
  • 5.0 kg of wheat pollard,
  • 12 kg of sunflower (or 12 kg of linseed),
  • 1.1 kg of fishmeal
  • 1.25 kg of lime
  • 30g of salt
  • 20g of premix

Amino acids to be added

  • 70g of tryptophan
  • 3.0g of lysine
  • 10g of methionine
  • 70 g of threonine
  • 50g of enzymes
  • 60g of coccidiostat
  • 50g of toxin binder

 To make a 50 kg bag growers feed (1 to 8 weeks), it is very necessary that pullets or young layers should be provided with a feed having a protein content of between 16 and 18 per cent. Such feed makes the pullet to grow fast and prepare for egg laying.

Note:  Layers’ feed should never be fed to chickens younger than 18 weeks as it contains calcium that can damage their kidneys (they can develop kidney stones), which interfere with egg production and also shorten their lifespan. Grit (sand) should be provided to growers that are not on free range to aid in digestion.

70 kg bag layer mash (18 weeks and above)

  • 24.3kg of whole maize
  • 8.6kg of Soya
  • 5.7kg of fishmeal
  • 7.1kg of maize bran, rice germ or wheat bran
  • 4.3 kg of lime
  • 180g premix

Amino acids to be added

  • 70g lysine
  • 35g methionine
  • 70kg threonine
  • 35g tryptophan
  • 50g toxin binder

Note: Layer feed should contain a Digestible Crude Protein (DCP) content of between 16-18 per cent. Calcium is important for the formation of eggshells (Laying hens that do not get enough calcium will use the calcium stored in their own bone tissue to produce eggshells). Layer feed should be introduced at 18 weeks.

 Important tips

  • When making home made feed rations, it is important to do experimental trials. Isolate a number of chickens, feed them and observing their performance. If the feed rations are right, the broilers will grow fast and the layers will increase egg production (at least 1 egg after every 27 hours).
  • Farmers should be very careful with the quality of feed ingredients or raw materials. Poultry, especially chickens are very sensitive to feeds that contain mycotoxins which are present in most of the raw materials. Never use rotten maize to make chicken feed.
  • Buy quality fishmeal from reputable companies. If omena(silver cyprinid) is used the farmers must be sure of its quality; most of the omena in the open-air markets may be contaminated.
  • It is very important to mix all the micronutrients (amino acids) first before mixing with the rest of the feed.
  • For mixing, farmers are advised to use a drum mixer (many welding artisans can make one). Never use a shovel to mix feed because the ingredients will be unevenly distributed.
  • Never use rotten raw materials like maize to make feed. Rotten materials might contain mycotoxins which are detrimental to poultry health.
  • Small scale families can contribute resources to the making of feed to ensure high-quality feed materials are used and also reduce costs.

Note: To improve on the feed quality, farmers making their own feeds should always have it tested to ensure the feed is well balanced.You can take your feed samples to agro-chemical industries for testing to ensure the feeds are balanced nutritionally.
