L-Cysteine 500mg L-Cysteine 500mg

Now Foods L-Cysteine is a dietary supplement which contains L-cysteine (as cysteine hydrochloride) in an amount of 500 mg in a single tab. The product has been additionally enriched with vitamins C and B6.

Cysteine is an organic chemical compound which belongs to the group of endogenous coded amino acids (it is produced by the human body system). It is contained in many proteins. It is the simplest sulphur amino acids (next to homocysteine and methionine). Cysteine is contained in the coenzyme A (after decarboxylation, as cysteamine). Its thiol group takes part in numerous reactions, including catabolic transformations, transportation of bicarbonate acetyl group, biosynthesis of fatty acids, numerous esters and amides.

Decarboxylation and oxidation of cysteine result in production of taurine, which is contained in bile salts. In the human body system, it has structural functions. Together with other protogenous amino acids, cysteine is the composition of human structural proteins, including the very important skeletal muscles.

In a unique way, cysteine contributes to detoxication of the body system (because it binds with a lot of chemicals). It shows antioxidant properties and removes toxins, oxygen free radicals and pathogens from the body system. It is often called a guardian of the human body, because it is a precursor to glutathione (it is a peptide which is not present in our diet – the body system produces it by itself, with the participation of cysteine).

Glutathione makes the human body system function properly. It takes part in the regeneration of many systems, organs and tissues. Basically, it controls all life processes, for example the formation of muscle proteins or the reconstruction. This refers to both the skeletal muscles and internal organs.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – is an essential component of diet which determines the proper functioning of the body. It has to be supplied with food, as a human being is not able to synthesize it. It is an important antioxidant that combats free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS). It acts also as a coenzyme in the process of collagen maturation. Moreover, it is one of the blood-forming factors. It also supports the immune system.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) – after applying, it is transformed into pyridoxal phosphate (a biologically active form); it is essential for the synthesis of neurotransmitters and hemoglobin. It facilitates the absorption of magnesium from the gastrointestinal tract. Furthermore, it improves the proper synthesis of cysteine, stimulates neurons supply with the glucose and regulates the metabolism of homocysteine.

To sum it all up, Now Foods L-Cysteine is a dietary supplement which supplements our diet with cysteine, which has numerous functions in the human body system. It is recommended for people with low immunity and liver problems. It is used to improve the condition of hair, skin and nails. However, it should be noted that supplementation of the amino acid can have a much wider range of applications, which should be consulted with a professional.

Vitamin C

Information


Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired
absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer
taking of synthetic vitamin C.

Ascorbic acid

Information

Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.

It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.

Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.

Cysteine

Information


Cysteine ​​belongs to the group of essential amino acids, synthesized by the body, involved in detoxification of the body. The combination of L-cysteine ​​with glutamine and glycine is involved in the synthesis of glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) and the proteins, enzymes and co-enzymes. Present in the protein product, in smaller amounts in corn and peanuts. The source of the acquisition are also concentrates and whey protein isolates, and preparations containing mixtures of amino acids. Not in the form mono-preparations. It is a component of detoxification, supporting the work of the liver supplements and in supplements improving the cosmetics of the body, usually in the form of L-cystine (two connected cysteine ​​particles) or in the form of NAC.
Dosage: the usual supplementation: 50-500 mg per day.


 

 

Chloride

Information

Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.
