Methionine
Methionine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that nourishes and strengths hair and nails and promotes skin elasticity. As a precursor of SAM, methionine aids in the prevention of fat accumulation in the liver.

How Does Methionine Work?

Protein Synthesis and Lipid Metabolism

Methionine must be ingested in the diet or as a supplement and is used for protein synthesis, including the formation of SAMe, L-homocysteine, L-cysteine, taurine, and sulfate. The first step in the conversion of methionine is to homocysteine and SAM. SAM is a methyl donor that is involved in many steps in lipid metabolism. SAM contributes to the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine and subsequently to phosphatidylcholine. Phosphatidylcholine is involved in producing very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL). VLDLs prevent fat accumulation in the liver. SAM is also a methyl donor used to produce creatine. Creatine is a protein that helps muscle cells produce energy. Homocysteine is further modified to produce cysteine. Cysteine is a precursor of glutathione and taurine.
