DL-Methionine

Methionine is one of the essential amino acids constituting the human body, involved in protein synthesis. It can not be generated in the body itself, so must be obtained from the external. If the methionine deficiency can lead to a blockage of protein in the body, resulting in damage to the body. Oxygen free radicals in the body caused by lipid oxidation is a cause body damage. Lipid peroxides can damage the primary and secondary lysosomal membrane, lysosomes containing acid phosphatase as hydrolysis released, causing damage to the important organelles of cells and mitochondria film, a methionine through a variety of The way to fight against such damages.
