What is L-Methionine?
An essential amino acid necessary for life, l-methionine cannot be created by the body, but rather must be obtained through diet and supplements. L-methionine is a water-soluble protein amino acid, one of two protein aminos that contains sulfur (the other being cysteine). The most naturally rich food sources of this amino acid are cheeses, eggs, fish, meat, and poultry.
L-methionine plays a key role in a number of biological functions. It acts as a precursor to protein synthesis and aids in the production of glutathione (an antioxidant), SAM-e, L-cysteine, taurine, and sulfate.
