Methionine is an essential amino acid that contains sulfur. It is an important source of dietary sulfur that is required by the body for normal metabolism and growth. Being an essential amino acid means it cannot be produced by the body. Hence, its supplementation would be acquired from food sources, either natural or synthetic.

Methionine naturally comes from meat, fish and dairy products. It also comes from plant foods like beans, seeds, onions, peanuts, lentils, and some grains. It is also available in dietary supplement form.

This prevents fat build-up by assisting in the breakdown of fats. It helps to detoxify the digestive system and liver. It is a powerful antioxidant and reduces histamine levels in the body when taking histamines. Histamines can cause the brain to relay wrong messages to the body. It also prevents liver damage in acetaminophen poisoning.

Deficiency in this essential amino acid can lead to severe mental disorders like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease. Methionine in its supplement form, are often recommended for people suffering from these mental disorders. It is also recommended for people with HIV/AIDS, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in adults, fibromyalgia, stress and anxiety.

Other health problems arising from its deficiency include liver damage, edema, weakness and brittle hair. Pregnant women who have low levels will likely to have infants with brain and spinal column disorders like hydroencephaly or spina bifida. Deficiency also slows down normal growth and development in children.

The intake of methionine detoxifies and protects the body from free radicals that may cause clogging in the arteries, leukemia and cancer. It detoxifies harmful agents such as lead and other heavy metals from the body. It also makes creatinine that is naturally found mostly in muscle tissue. Creatinine is necessary for muscle function and helps boost athletic performance in short and intense workouts.

Too much of this amino acid has also harmful effects on the body as it would increase the level of homocysteine in the blood. It leads to greater risk of coronary heart disease.
