As a component of amino acids, enzymes, and hormones, sulphur occurs naturally in foods.
Proteins are a source of sulfur amino acids, including cysteine and methionine.
Methionine is an essential amino acid that can be converted into several sulphur-containing molecules with important functions, such as S-adenosylmethionine or creatine. It also gives rise to cysteine—another sulphur amino acid. Methionine has antioxidant effects and is important for proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems.
Cysteine is a non-essential amino acid that is no less important than essential amino acids. It plays a role in the formation of protein structures, as well as in the synthesis of taurine and glutathione. These compounds are crucial to the regulation of oxidative stress and detoxification.
Sulphur is a natural component of the ingredients in ManaPowder and ManaDrink.
Mana is nutritionally complete food. Enjoy it as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
