Cysteine helps to detoxify harmful toxins and protect the body from radiation damage. It is one of the best free radical destroyers, and works best when taken with selenium and vitamin E. Cysteine is also precursor to Glutathione, a substance that detoxifies the liver by binding with potentially harmful substances there. It helps to protect the liver and brain from damage due to alcohol, drugs and toxic compounds in cigarette smoke.

Supplementation with L-Cysteine is recommended in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, hardening of the arteries and mutagenic disorders. It promotes healing after surgery and severe burns, chelates heavy metals and binds with soluble iron, aiding in iron absorption.


This amino acid also promotes the burning of fat and the building of muscle. Because of its ability to break down mucus in the respiratory tract, L-Cysteine is often beneficial in the treatment of bronchitis, emphysema and tuberculosis. It promotes healing from respiratory disorders and plays an important role in the activity of white blood cells, which fight disease.


1 Capsule daily or as directed.


People who have diabetes should be cautious about taking supplement Cysteine because it is capable of inactivating insulin. Persons with cystinuria, a rare genetic condition that leads to the formation of Cystine kidney stones, should not take Cysteine.
