L-Methionine is a sulphur containing essential amino acid – meaning that is must be obtained by the diet and cannot be synthesised by the body, it is highly important for general health that we obtain enough to avoid deficiency.

L-Methionine is a sulphur containing essential amino acid – meaning that is must be obtained by the diet and cannot be synthesised by the body, it is highly important for general health that we obtain enough to avoid deficiency.

L-Methionine is crucially involved in metabolism and with the creation of certain parts of the body including cartilage, new blood vessels and there have even been claims that it could assist in various physical issues such as hair loss, asthma and allergies.

Although deficiency in Methionine is rare, when someone is deficient supplementation is generally recommended to bring their levels up to normal.

Symptoms of low Methionine may include: reduced growth, liver damage, muscle loss, edema, skin lesions and lethargy.

Any diet can obtain sufficient levels of Methionine providing enough is consumed, foods high in Methionine include:

– Nuts
– Beef
– Lamb
– Fish
– Eggs
– Dairy
– Beans

Although, some may wish to supplement with the isolated amino acid directly should they have certain conditions and are advised by a medical professional.

Potential Benefits on Cartilage

Whilst the above foods listed are high in this amino acid, supplementing with the isolated version of Methionine may be something of interest particularly to those who wish to strengthen hair, nails and cartilage.

Due to the fact that cartilage requires sulphur to be constructed – the sulphur found within Methionine proves to be useful when not enough is present within the body. As we can’t ingest sulphur directly, consuming food that works with the body to produce it is essential. Certain Methionine related products contain B vitamins alongside the isolated amino acid \u2013 they work together to form these sulphur connections in cartilage for example.

L-Methionine as an Antioxidant

A powerful antioxidant, Methionine and the sulphur contained works within the body to counteract free radicals formed as the result of certain metabolic processes. Combating free radicals is seen as increasingly important for health and longevity, Phyllis Balch, author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing states:

“If not neutralised, free radicals interact with DNA and the proteins in healthy cells and damage tissues and organs such as skin, nails, heart, liver and lungs.”
