Product No. P0357

Cysteine is a precursor to taurine and chondroitin sulphate, the main component of cartilage. Cysteine is one of the three main sulphur-containing amino acids, along with taurine and methionine. It is a major constituent of glutathione, an important tripeptide made up of cystine, glutamic acid, and glycine. 
Cysteine and cystine are interconvertible: two molecules of cysteine make cystine. It is an antioxidant and has been shown to be protective against radiation, pollution, ultra-violet light and other causes of increased free radical production. It is a natural detoxifier and has been reported to be essential in growth, maintenance and repair of skin, and is a key ingredient in hair.
