(ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID)
Methionine is a powerful anti-oxidant and a good source of sulfur, which prevents disorders of the hair, skin, and
nails. It assists the breakdown of fats, thus helping to prevent a buildup of fat in the liver and arteries, that might obstruct blood flow to the brain, heart, and
kidneys. It helps to detoxify harmful agents such as lead and other heavy
metals. It helps diminish muscle weakness; prevents brittle hair; protects against the affects of
radiation. It is beneficial for women who take oral contraceptives because it promotes the excretion of
estrogen. It reduces the level of histamine in the body which can cause the brain to relay wrong
messages. Methionine can be helpful to individuals suffering from schizophrenia.
