Methionine is a member of the lipotropic team which includes choline, inositol, and betaine.
Its primary function is to prevent excessive accumulation of fat in the liver.
By increasing the liver’s production of lecithin, methionine helps prevent elevated cholesterol levels.
Methionine also serves as an important source of the trace element sulphur, essential for the health of hair, skin, nails and joints. Methionine and other sulphur bearing amino acids also play important roles as antioxidants and neutralisers of certain toxins.
