Beneficial for people with allergies. L-Methionine helps increase neuro-transmitters in the brain. Helps create adrenaline, which controls sexual activity and mitigates the effects of high histamine levels.
The principle supplier of sulfur which prevents disorders of the hair, skin and nails; helps lower cholesterol levels by increasing the liver's production of lecithin; reduces liver fat and protects the kidneys; a natural chelating agent for heavy metals; regulates the formation of ammonia and creates ammonia-free urine which reduces bladder irritation; influences hair follicles and promotes hair growth.

Helps reduce blood cholesterol levels.
One of the sulfur-containing amino acids (the others are Cysteine and Taurine). The sulfur-containing amino acids act as anti-oxidants which neutralize free radicals.
Helps prevent disorder of hair, skin, and nails due to sulfur and anti-oxidant activity.
Precursor to Carnitine, Melatonin (the natural sleep aid) and Choline (part of the neurotransmitter, Acetylcholine).
Involved in the breakdown of Epinephrine, Histamine, and Nicotinic Acid.
Required for synthesis of RNA and DNA.
Natural chelating agent for heavy metals, such as lead and mercury.
Along with other body substances such as selenium, detoxifies heavy metals. Helps create adrenaline which controls sexual activity and mitigates the effects of high histamine levels and prevents premature ejaculation. L-Methionine, along with Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidus, helps increase neuro-transmitters in the brain.
