Arginine and Lysine

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 09, 2011 at 7:41 AM

I have read some pages concerning Arginine which quite significantly inhibits Lysine absorption. Does anyone have any information about this or if the lysine in the food has to be in the stomach at the same time as the Arginine? I just want to have my first bone broth lol and bone broth contains a lot of gelatin which is a rich source of Arginine. Thank you for anyone who has any advice or who has tried to help.

Well, if we're anything like a pig, then you are absolutely correct. Basically, it would seem that arginine causes secretion of lysine into the intestines. Lysine would thereby be much better absorbed without other amino acids. Or so the research below says:
