What is methionine?
Methionine is an essential amino acid which contains sulfur. It can not be synthesized by the organism and must obligatory be provided by the nutrition. Methionine is found in meat, fish, eggs, milk products, cereal and soybeans. Our body also absorbs methionine provided from the intestinal flora. It represents about 2% of the amino acids from the protein of the human body. Methionine plays a crucial role within the reproduction and the cell longevity. The synthesis of all the protein molecules begins with the genetic code (AUG) corresponding to methionine. If methionine is not at its place, the protein molecule can not be produced nor can it function. Without protein there is no life. Methionine is therefore essential to the growth and balance of all living organism.
Methionine protects the cells of the liver, detoxifies the organism.
Methionine is known for being a liver protector. As a lipotropic agent, it prevents the accumulation of fat and aids the elimination. Methionine plays also a detoxification role for medication and certain heavy metals such as iron, lead and mercury. Indeed, methionine is converted into a cystein amino acid, a precursor of glutathione, the most efficient detoxifier within the human body. Methionine stimulates the glutathione production, in cases when the body is overcharged with toxins. It protects also the kidneys and the bladder by regulating the ammoniac formation within the urine. Methionine helps the body also eliminate waste through natural way.
Necessary for your hair’s health.
Methionine is at the same time a precursor and an activator of the keratin synthesis, the raw material of the hair and all the other skin appendages (nails, skin). Indeed, the protein chains of keratin are sealed one to another by sulfur molecules contained in the methionine and other sulfur-containing amino acids (cystein and cystine). An absence of methionine causes the hair and nail growth to vary. Methionine has a stimulating action on the length, diameter and density of the hair. It strengthens the hair growth and prevents hair loss. Thanks to sulfur, methionine helps control the sebum secretion and eliminates the toxins which settle on the roots.
Methionine is essential for the development of the fetus.
A fable level of methionine within pregnant women has demonstrated an increase of risk of fetus anomalies. These congenital malformations are caused by a failure of the neural tube which doesn’t close itself correctly during the formation of the central nerve system throughout the development of the embryo. Mothers who have a methionine deficiency during the a period of three months before the conception up to the 1st trimester of the pregnancy diminish significantly the risk of giving birth to a child suffering from neural tube anomalies. Methionine is also important for women taking birth control pills since the help eliminate the estrogens.
Methionine is depressive states.
Methionine participates in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin), the element which plays a crucial role in the maintaining of the fluidity of the cell membranes and which is a essential component of the nerve system (composing almost 30 % of the dry weight of the brain and 15 % of the nerves). Methionine is indispensable to the production of myelin, a molecule used to isolate and protect the nerve fibers.
Methionine can be useful for people suffering from schizophrenia. Indeed, this mental sickness is linked to an excess of histamine in the organism. By reducing the level of histamine, methionine improves significantly certain symptoms of patients suffering from schizophrenia.
Precursor of SAMe (S-adenosyl methionine), methionine posses an anti-depressive action and reduces significantly the apparition of suicidal tendencies. After several years of clinic studies, SAMe has proven its beneficial effects: well-being, comfort and emotional balance. SAMe is a component which is used as a major source to the production of neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine). The intake of SAMe provides far more better results than the traditional results with antidepressant. SAMe is as efficient as classical anti-inflammatories within the treatment of arthritis. It protects and repairs the joints while
