DetailsMost cells are not able to take up intact glutathione and therefore rely on the uptake of its precursors including cysteine, to produce glutathione. Glutathione is considered to be the 'master antioxidant' and is vital for a plethora of biochemical functions and reactions in the body. Genetic individuality can affect the body's own production of glutathione making supplementation with its precursor such as cysteine more necessary. This product is suitable for those experiencing conditions where low levels of glutathione may occur, such as issues with the transsulphuration pathway. Cysteine is also a methyl donor in many biochemical pathways including the conversion of homocysteine to methionine and the inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF. The body’s own supply of cysteine can be low due to a number of factors such as poor absorption or low intake of dietary sources from vegan or vegetarian diets for example.

- Active Ingredients
- Vitamin B6
Is a sulphur-containing amino acid and required for the production of the body’s proteins and enzymes. It is also a major structural component in the body’s production of intracellular glutathione, a vital antioxidant, and an important aspect of healthy detoxification. It is also a methyl donor in many biochemical pathways including the conversion of homocysteine to methionine as well as serving to inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF. The body’s own supply of cysteine can be low due to a number of factors such as poor absorption or low intake of dietary sources from vegan or vegetarian diets for example. Food-Grown Cysteine provides a protein-bound form of cysteine making it the preferred form for the body to utilise.
Is a co-eznyme for the body's own production of cysteine. Vitamin B6 is also required for the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and GABA as well as the moderation of histamine.
Recent research has shown that when cysteine is bound with zinc, it facilitates a wide range of additional cellular functions including increased antioxidant activity of catalase, glutathione peroxidase and metallothionein.
