L-Cysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid which can usually be made from L-Methionine and elemental sulfur by the body. Jo Mar sells L-Cysteine Hydrochloride Anahydrous, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine and L-Cystine. None of the forms of Cysteine are very palatable and the taste is extremely sour. The powder is water soluble and weighs about 3.8 grams per level measuring teaspoon. Capsules may contain less than 1% magnesium stearate, an inert ingredient used in the encapsulation process. An adequate supply of Vitamin C and B6 should always accompany any Cysteine or Cystine supplementation.
