An Important Organic Sulfur Donor

  • Joint cartilage principally requires one thing for its creation: sulfur. If there is not enough sulfur available in the body healthy individuals will not be negatively affected over the long term. This is however not the case for those who suffer from arthritis for a sulfur deficiency can cause major complications even in  the initial stages of arthritis.

  • Tests have proven that the cartilage in healthy individuals contains around three times more sulfur than in patients who suffer from arthritis. Consequently, sufferers are advised to boost the body's own sulfur production through the supplementary administration of methionine16.

  • Racemethionine is also a precursor to other sulfur containing amino acids such as taurine and LCysteine. L-Cysteine is an important component of cartilage amino acids and this makes methionine beneficial for formation and repair of cartilage structures. Methionine is also involved in the formation of collagen, a protein that makes up bone matrix.

  • Methionine is one of the most important and effective in the diet therapy of arthritis. Research has shown that after four weeks, methionine supplementation appears to show effects comparable to those of conventional anti-inflammatory drugs17.
