Methionine is a Sulfur containing amino acid, precursor to another Sulfur amino acid, Cysteine. Cysteine is present in high concentrations in the hoof wall, and bonds between the Sulfur molecules contribute to its strength.
It is also the precursor for Taurine, which is essential for heart health, and L-Carnitine, a molecule that carries fats into the mitochondria to be burned as fuel.
By participation in methylation reactions, Methionine contributes to a calm and happy mental attitude via serot0nin synthesis. Methylation is also a detoxification pathway for many compounds in the liver and kidney.
In the muscle, Methionine is essential for the production of Creatine, a storage form of high energy Phosphate and a contributor to muscle bulk.
