Wild Nutrition Food-Grown® Cysteine Plus is an expertly formulated blend of FOOD-GROWN® Cysteine with Zinc and Vitamin B6. Cysteine plays a fundamental role in many health functions including the synthesis of insulin and glutathione as well as the immune system. The addition of synergistic zinc and vitamin B6 for cysteine metabolism makes this a superior blend to standard N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC).
Most 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.
Cysteine Plus Key Benefits:
