Seeking Health Methionine contains L-methionine, an essential sulfur-containing amino acid that is used to form other amino acids such as cysteine and taurine. L-methionine is essential for the production of creatine, for mood regulation, and for healthy skin and nails. 100 veg caps
L-methionine is one of eight essential amino acids, which means that it is an essential building block for proteins and it cannot be produced in the body. L-Methionine is essential for the production of creatine, which is an important nutrient for proper functioning of muscles and the entire cardiovascular system. It can also be used to treat anxiety and depression. Supports liver function and promotes healthy skin and nails.
Benefits of Methionine
Anxiety and Depression : Methionine is an amino acid that is commonly found in protein foods. Research shows that persons suffering from some forms of anxiety and depression have low methylation. Methylation is an essential process inside the human body where a donor molecule like Methionine gives methyl molecules to other molecules that needs it.
The production of neurotransmitters which are responsible for normalizing mood requires the methylation process. A person with low methylation makes fewer serotonin and thus becomes depressed. The action of Methionine is similar to Sam-E ( S-adenosylmethionine) because the body can manufacture Sam-E from Methionine. Methionine is several times cheaper than Sam-E, which makes Methionine cost effective when used over long periods of time.
Cardiovascular, Liver, Skin, Nails : Methionine by Seeking Health is beneficial for treating liver disease, and is recommended for people who adhere to a vegetarian diet. It also benefits skin tone and elasticity, nails and hair. Methionine is important for proper cardiovascular functions as well, through its role in the production of creatine. Recent studies have found that L-Methionine may also benefit pancreatitis and Parkinson's disease.
Body Fat, Muscle Health : Methionine also helps the body process and eliminate fat. This essential amino acid is required to produce cysteine and taurine, which help eliminate toxins and build strong, healthy tissues, including muscle tissues. It also promotes cardiovascular health, which is especially important for people who work out regularly.
Methionine is necessary for the production of creatine, a nutrient found in muscle tissue. Creatine provides the energy muscles require to move and has also been shown to increase the performance of athletes during intense workout bursts. It is crucial for all functioning of the muscles, which in turn supports normal heart and circulatory function.
Note: Methionine raises homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is not good for your heart but you can lower the homocysteine levels inside your body by taking Vitamin B6, B12 and Folic acid along with Methionine. We suggest taking HomocysteX by Seeking Health along with Methionine.
Methionine by Seeking Health capsules contain 500 mg L-Methoionine in an easy-to-aborb vegetarian capsule . It is free of preservatives and magnesium stearate.

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

Consider taking HomocysteX Plus along with Magnesium Plus.
HomocysteX Plus has two additional nutrients which HomocysteX does not:
- Betaine as TMG- Vitamin B2
These two nutrients further support the production of SAMe - especially Betaine.
Magnesium is a necessary cofactor for SAMe production and vitamin B6 is needed for neurotransmitter production. Both of these are found in Magnesium Plus.
Try these two suggestions and report back in 1 month. If it works well, all set. If not, we can make some changes.
