Methionine - Dr. Amino

Methionine

This sulfur-containing amino acid is a safe dietary approach to ensure adequate sulfur intake. Methionine occupies a unique position among the essential amino acids, because without it, the synthesis of protein never gets started. Methionine also promotes the formation of collagen and cartilage tissue, and has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic properties. Methionine is essential for the absorption and bio-availability of selenium and zinc, aids in detoxification and excretion of chemicals such as lead and mercury, and helps the liver metabolize fats.
