Hello vegan fitness friends!
I'm from Austria and new here 38 years old, love eat vegan, raw food and my hobby is creating new delicious recipes. I even love sport e.g. ride my new e-bike. But my favourite hobby is definitely alternative healing methods!
So i'm a natural health professional and able to check several deficiencies as vitamins or even amino acids.
VEGAN DIETS AND LYSINE DEFICIENCY
It was shocking for me because I was totally lacking of the essential amino acid lysine! And at this time I really had major health problems for several months. I suffered from different kinds of viruses as herpes, problems with never ending cough and major problems with different viruses on my uterine zervix - my pap smear changed dramatically! To this I suffered also from hair loss with no apparent reason. I had to fight with very poor health and beauty only because lacking lysine! I never ate enough food which contains lysine over a long time, and this caused my severe health problems! You find lysine in greater amounts in several vegan foods as beans, lentils, soy products and nuts. According RDA you need 38 mg lysine per kg body weight this is pretty much and difficult to reach and according my experiences as health professional is this true. It's a good idea to supplement lysine from time to time if someone doesn't reach enough of this essential amino acid.
It would be interesting for me if someone supplement carnitine. I think this amino acid is also very essential for vegan people. I take daily 500 mg and I have much more energy than ever before.
I even wrote a book and hope I'm allowed to introduce it here.
