Science & Research
L-Methionine is an essential amino acid that contains sulfur, which is an important component of cartilage building blocks such as proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. Methionine is incorporated into tissue proteins and enzymes and is a component of active peptides, including methionine enkephalin and various endorphins. One of the main roles of l-methionine is as a methyl donor, contributing to numerous physiological pathways in the bodyincluding formation of myelin components. In the methylation pathway, methionine is converted to Sadenosylmethionine (SAMe), a methyl donor.1 Studies suggest that l-methionine promotes healthy cellular metabolism, enzyme activity and glutathione concentration.2 l-Methionine, like choline and betaine, is also a lipotropic compound supporting lipid metabolism and healthy hepatic function.3 In combination with antioxidants, l-methionine may also play a role in healthy pancreatic function.4
