L-Metionina: natural ingredient of Mycolor

The l-methionine is an essential amino acid precursor of Taurine, Cysteine and Cystine and of jointly with the last two constitute the class of sulfurated amino acids, so called because in their molecule accommodate a sulfur atom.
The presence of sulfur allows them to block heavy metals, very harmful to the body and perform an antioxidant activity, limiting the damage caused by free radicals.

Methionine is responsible for the proper use of selenium in ’body but is not synthesized in the body and must be obtained from food or supplements.

The l-methionine together with cysteine??, implements an important structural function carried out in various tissues such as those of the hairIts function in the human body is carried out in various tissues such as those of the hair where, together with cysteine, implements an important structural function. The combination of these two amino acids helps to keep the hair shaft flexible and resistant at the same time thanks to an increased ability to retain keratin (also present in the nails).

With this amino acid, the body increases its opportunities detoxifying and allowing the disposal of substances harmful to the body as many metals including mercury.
Methionine is recommended in sport and even in medical field for its lipolytic properties aimed at parts of the body such as the liver and fat adhering to the arteries. This takes place thanks to the synergy of the amino acid protein with the compound glutathione peroxidase. In this regard it is considered to be an effective treatment for the symptoms of “fatty liver”.

The Methionine is interested in the synthesis of cysteine, carnitine and taurine by the process of the trans-sulfuration; also is involved in the synthesis of lecithin and phosphatidyl-
choline and other phospholipids. A inadequate metabolism of methionine can lead to atherosclerosis.

In the form of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) is a mediator methylating but methionine is a chelating agent. Methionine is one of only two amino acids that is encoded by a single codon (AUG), the other is the tryptophan.
The assumption should always be accompanied by the integration of group B vitamins and folic acid such as in Mycolor.

Activity of methionine

Alcohol, when taken in high doses, cancels the methionineMethionine significantly reduces the amount of fat in the blood and is needed for the systems detoxi-
fying the human body. Alcohol, when taken in high doses, cancels the methionine. It is responsible for the proper use of selenium and is essential to produce adrenaline, acetylcholine and Creatine. It is also important to maintain healthy skin, hair, nervous system and liver.

The intake of methionine is important for the treatment of rheumatic fever and toxemia caused by pregnancy. It helps to prevent the accumulation of fat that obstructs blood flow to the brain, heart, kidneys, liver and arteries. Methionine helps the digestive system, supports in the debilitating muscle and helps to purify, protects against capillary fragility, helps against allergies and osteoporosis.


Requires an appropriate intake of vitamin B6 for its use.

Deficiency symptoms

Reduction of tone epithelial loss and depigmentation of hair, weakness and fatigue, decreased protein synthesis, fatty infiltration of the liver.
