"If you are at risk of heart disease, or if there is a history of heart disease in your family, if your father or other members of the family died of a heart attack or stroke, or if you have a mild heart attack yourself, then you had better be taking vitamin C and lysine." (Linus Pauling, from 1994 interview in British Journal of Optimum Nutrition)

Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling Recommended vitamin C and lysine for all forms of cardiovascular disease.

"Knowing that lysyl residues are what causes lipoprotein(a) to get stuck to the wall of the artery and form atherosclerotic plaques, any physical chemist would say at once that the thing to do is prevent that by putting the amino acid lysine in the blood to a greater extent than it is normally.

You need lysine to be alive, it is essential: You have to get about 1 gram a day to keep in protein balance, but you can take lysine, pure lysine, a perfectly non toxic substance in food, as supplements, which puts extra lysine molecules in the blood.

"These molecules enter into competition with the lysyl residues on the wall of arteries and accordingly count to prevent Lp(a) from being deposited, or even will work to pull it loose and destroy atherosclerotic plaques." (Linus Pauling, Journal of Optimum Nutrition, Aug 1994)

The combination of arginine pyroglutamate and lysine makes a very effective GH releaser.

A study published in 1981 used a special form of arginine (arginine pyroglutamate), in combination with lysine (another amino acid), to induce a significant GH release when taken orally in relatively small amounts. Fifteen healthy male subjects, aged 15 to 20 years old, were given 1,200 mg of arginine pyroglutamate combined with 1,200 mg of L-lysine hydrochloride. The results of this specific combination were spectacular, causing a large GH release that was sustained for several hours. (Abstract)
