- Cysteine is the most cost effective sulfur supplement when comparing the ratios of sulfur obtained.
- Cysteine and methionine are the only two amino acids with sulfur. However, methionine has homocysteine as a potentially negative byproduct.
- Cysteine is the rate limiting step in the formation of glutathione. Therefore, it is the most direct and effective source for supporting glutathione naturally.
- Oral glutathione supplementation may interfere with your body’s natural ability to process glutathione from food sources which makes cysteine often more desirable than direct glutathione supplementation
- Cysteine is preferred to N-acetylcysteine (NAC) because NAC is not naturally found in the body. It can indiscriminately and undesirably acetylate other compounds in the body.
