Cysteine is a nonessential amino acid (protein building block), meaning that cysteine can be made in the human body. Cysteine is one of the few amino acids that contains sulfur. This allows cysteine to bond in a special way and maintain the structure of proteins in the body. Cysteine is a component of the antioxidant, glutathione. The body also uses cysteine to produce taurine, another amino acid.

Cysteine can also be converted into glucose and used as a source of energy. Cysteine strengthens the protective lining of the stomach and intestines, which may help prevent damage caused by aspirin and similar drugs.1 In addition, cysteine may play an important role in the communication between immune system cells.2 Cysteine is rarely used as a dietary supplement. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), which contains cysteine, is more commonly used as a supplement.

Long chains of molecularly bonded individual amino acids form protein. The body must first break these molecular (pepetide) bonds for amino acid absorption to take place. Solgar's free form amino acids are already in their simplest form (no peptide bonds) and can be readily absorbed into the bloodstream.

Solgar's L-Cysteine Vegetable Capsules are free of corn, yeast, wheat, soy and dairy products and are formulated without the use of preservatives, artificial flavors or colors.
