If you’re a vegetarian or vegan‚ or if you just don’t eat a lot of meat‚ you may be deficient in L-methionine‚ one of eight essential amino acids that your body needs in order to function properly. Since your body doesn’t make this amino acid itself‚ you must get it through your diet or a supplement. L-methionine is found naturally in meat‚ fish‚ eggs‚ and dairy products; it’s also found in some fruits and vegetables‚ but at very low levels.
L-methionine is important for your health: it helps your body make and use proteins‚ metabolize fats (which may encourage weight loss)‚ and produce serotonin and dopamine in your brain—hormones that promote a better mood. L-methionine is also an antioxidant that protects your body from the damage that can be caused by free radicals‚ harmful molecules that destroy healthy tissue and cells). In addition‚ the amino acid may help treat joint pain and stiffness‚ general pain‚ headaches‚ nausea‚ hair loss‚ and sadness.
Pure Encapsulations’ L-Methionine is a supplement that can increase the levels of this essential amino acid in your body; this keeps your protein levels up‚ which helps you stay healthy. Each capsule provides free-form L-methionine in order to treat a deficiency.
Each bottle of L-Methionine by Pure Encapsulations contains 60 vegetable capsules‚ which should last for up to one month when taken at the recommended dosage of two to three capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals.
