New Roots L-Cysteine 500 mg


l-Cysteine can be obtained from dietary protein or synthesized from the amino acid l-methionine. It is directly depleted by cigarette smoking, and its depletion may be partially related to the faster aging of skin in smokers. l-Cysteine can act as an antioxidant and may prevent liver diseases.

l-Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid which, together with glycine and glutamic acid, forms the all-important antioxidant glutathione. l-Cysteine contributes to the formation of protein in our bodies. It plays a role in energy metabolism, both by being able to convert to glucose and be used as fuel, as well as by playing a part in the synthesis of fatty acids. It acts in the liver to help detoxify carcinogens and other dangerous chemicals.
