Once consumed, the body combines L-Methionine with ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) when then goes on to produce SAMe, which is a requirement of at least forty different biochemical reactions that are necessary towards sustaining life, and it is also indirectly present in a lot more.
The reason that the body needs Methionine is that it helps produce Cysteine and Taurine which help to support the cardiovascular system, build up healthy tissue, and get rid of bad bodily toxins. The body also uses these sulfur compounds to help develop the hair, nails, and skin. Sulfur also aids the kidneys in getting rid of metallic toxins present in there.
Methionine is what is known as a Lipotropic, which means that it helps the liver in rapidly processing fats. Chemicals also a part of the Lipotropic group are Inositol, Betaine, and Choline which each help out the liver in one way or another. It also helps to support the production of Glutathione which helps to further detoxify the liver. Methionine is also necessary in the body's natural production of Creatine, a chemical that is used to build muscle, support the cardiac region, and create new energy and boost overall athletic performance.
Health Benefits Provided by L-Methionine
Methionine facilitates the body's protein synthesizing functions, particularly in the case of muscle protein. Methionine also provides the body with much needed sulfur which is necessary for the body to produce energy and helps out with antioxidants in the system to keep free radicals from damaging healthy cells. Methionine helps to break fats down and keeps the digestive system well supported while getting rid of dangerous heavy metals in the liver and regulating the levels of other compounds containing sulfur within the liver.
