L-Cysteine Benefits

Cysteine is a conditionally indispensable sulfur amino acid. Although it is formed in the body from Methionine, insufficient amounts are synthesized - even in healthy individuals. Severely traumatized patients, and especially burn patients, require increased amounts of Cysteine for metabolic -nutritional needs. Cysteine is a constituent of Glutathione and Coenzyme A, a precursor for Taurine, and converts to Cystine in the body, which is made up of two Cysteine molecules. Since Cysteine is more reactive than Cystine, it is generally more often recommended for biochemical support. Cysteine has antioxidant properties reacting with free radicals and peroxides, and chelating with heavy metals. It helps detoxify the liver and protects the liver and brain, and possibly the kidneys and bladder as well, from the harmful toxic compounds in alcohol, drugs, cigarette smoke, & radiation and chemical therapy. (N-Acetyl- L-Cysteine given to those taking chemotherapy -in doses of 1-2 grams per day- helped prevent against nausea and vomiting). Cysteine, part of the Cystine molecule, is found in alpha-keratin, the main protein in hair, skin and nails, and it is involved in cartilage and collagen production for healthy joints and youthful skin.

Deficiencies have been noted in those with food and chemical sensitivities, and when the body is under severe stress with increased catabolic rates. Low levels of Cysteine are often noted in these patients and they have insufficient amounts for Glutathione synthesis. Burn patients, and those with sepsis and impaired immune system diseases, have increased oxidative damage to cells, and Glutathione is necessary to help prevent the free radical damage and help improve tissue repair and immune function.

Recommended to Enhance Structure & Function Relating to Nutritional Needs and Deficiencies Pertaining to:

Formation of hair, skin and collagen.

A precursor to the protein Glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant and is necessary for a healthy respiratory and immune system.

The formation of Taurine, an amino acid and antioxidant, important for myocardial health.

Detoxification of heavy metals. Cysteine is the key amino acid in metaloproteins. Metaloproteins are made in the liver and attach themselves to toxic metals in the bloodstream and carry them away for excretion.

Helping to protect liver and brain from free radical damage, including toxicity of alcohol, drugs, and cigarette smoke.

Promoting healing and improving the immune system by the effect on white cell function, especially in burn and HIV patients, whose immune systems are severely impaired.
