L-Methionine 500 mg, 100 Caps

L-Methionine is an essential sulfur amino acid, meaning the body cannot it, and it which must be obtained from food or supplement sources. It plays several roles in the body including promoting normal growth and metabolism and aiding the liver in processing fat. Sulphur is one mineral found in amino acids like methionine which is responsible in a number of important body functions. It also contributes to the improvement of skin, as well as the condition of hair and nails.

Sulfur protects the cells by fighting off pollutants and is known to slow down the aging process. It also boosts metabolism. Because it serves as a lipotropic, L-Methionine is important in processing fats and maintaining the good condition of the liver by preventing fat build up and aiding in the elimination of fatty substances that block arteries especially those responsible in the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart, kidneys and the brain.

Methionine also eases fatigue and can also alleviate allergies since it reduces the release of histamine. Medical professionals have also found it useful in the treatment of rheumatic fever. In addition, it is directly accountable for the manufacture of creatine naturally found in muscle tissues, providing these tissues the energy needed to move. Creatine is identified with good muscle function, supporting heart and circulatory systems.

People into heavy workouts are encouraged to take L-Methionine supplements. This essential amino acid also serves as a lipotropic agent to stop fat accumulation in the liver and is a classic chelator of lead, mercury, cadmium and other heavy metals, where these dangerous elements are bonded and finally excreted out of the body. Methionine is also responsible for the production of collagen which makes skin more supple and improves hair and skin quality.

 L-Methionine is classified as an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be manufactured by the body. It must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. L-Methionine supports the production of the cellular antioxidant, glutathione, thereby assists in natural detoxification processes. In the body, L-Methionine can also be converted into SAMe (S-Adenosyl Methionine), a compound that supports healthy joints
