Methionine is one of the essential amino acids that serve as the body’s building block for proteins. It is a lipotropic agent as it is responsible in controlling fat in the liver and arteries. Thus, enabling the liver to maintain its normal detoxification function and prevent also the occurrence of possible clogging of arteries due to fat build-up associated with unregulated intake of fatty foods and the likes.

As an essential amino acid, the body does not manufacture it. Hence, it is essential that one’s diet is rich in methionine. Protein-rich foods like red meat, poultry, fish and dairy products are natural rich sources of this amino acid.

Other rich sources are beans, eggs, sesame seeds and grains. Legumes, fruits and vegetables also contain this but have lower content unlike the animal and dairy products. Hence, vegetarians are recommended to take supplements to supply their body with this important amino acid.

It is vital that the body gets enough of this essential amino acid because lack of it could cause harmful effects in the body. It is a primary source of sulfur that is required by the body for normal metabolism and growth and inactivates free radicals.

Beside its function of preventing fat build up in the liver and arteries, it is also responsible for the removal of metals such as lead and mercury from the body. It is also essential in bladder and kidney functions and in the maintenance of healthy nails, hair and skin as well as muscle growth and energy.

Methionine is available also in supplement form and is being used to treat persons with hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver. It also helps alleviate depression. It helps raise the mood and provide relief to those clinically depressed. It is also used to treat osteoarthritis due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is also recommended for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. This works best when taken with Vitamin B-complex supplements to prevent arteriosclerosis, the hardening of arteries. It occurs when there is an excessive intake of methionine for persons with B-vitamin deficiencies.
