Methionine

When in its natural L-form, methionine is a proteinogen amino acid. It is classed as an essential amino acid and cannot be synthesized by the body itself. This means that a sufficient supply of methionine in the diet or as a dietary supplement is of particular importance.

Methionine is an essential amino acid very important for digestion, for the metabolism of muscles and especially for heavy metal detoxification. Our body is not able to synthesize this substance alone, thus to assume it is necessary to pay great attention to diet.

An adult has a demand between 800-1000 mg per day and is mostly found in the album, in cow’s milk, cheese, the beef and isolate protein of soy.

It does not overdo it. Excessive consumption of this amino acid causes the conversion of methionine into homocysteine, a substance involved in many cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, it can be toxic and create acidity in the blood. This amino acid is mainly composed of sulphur, which in turn is transformed into sulfuric acid. The organism to eliminate this acid releases calcium from the bones.
