New Roots L-Cysteine 500 mg 50 Capsules
This precursor to glutathione synthesis depletes at a high rate and may be related to premature skin aging. It is recognized as a potent, antioxidant amino acid.
L-Cysteine can be obtained from dietary protein or synthesized from the amino acid L-methionine. Its depletion may be partially related to the faster aging of skin, especially with smokers. L-Cysteine can act as an antioxidant.
L-Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid which, together with glycine and glutamic acid, forms the all-important antioxidant glutathione. L-Cysteine also contributes to protein formation in the form of beta-keratin, which is a major component of skin, hair, and nails.
Targeted supplementation with L-cysteine could prove to be indispensable to your ongoing health and vitality.
Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
