Cysteine HCL is a Non-Essential, Glucogenic, Sulfur-Containing Amino Acid is synthesized in the Liver. Cysteine and Cystine readily convert to one another and have almost identical functions within the body (although Cystine is a less desirable form than "true" Cysteine). Cysteine HCL is Cysteine bound to 23% Hydrochloric Acid (HCl).
Cystine is a Non-Essential Disulfide Amino Acid formed within the body by linking two Cysteine molecules by their Sulfur atoms - i.e. Cystine is the oxidized form of Cysteine. Cysteine and Cystine readily convert to one another and have almost identical functions within the body.
Methylsulfonylmethane is a type of Sulfuric Compound that is naturally present in the body (i.e. it is an endogenous form of Sulfur). MSM is similar in chemical structure to (but claimed to be safer than) Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) - MSM is the active therapeutic constituent of DMSO and is also an oxidative metabolite of DMSO.

Life Extension’s Two Per Day multivitamins have the highest nutritional potencies of any science-based multivitamin formula that can fit inside two capsules or tablets. This gives you far more of the essential vitamins, minerals and health promoting nutrients than typical store-bought formulas … and it does so at a very economical price. Why is this so important? While Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) were developed by the government, they only provide the minimal doses to protect you from deficiency. Research studies demonstrate that unless you’re taking the ideal dose of vitamins and minerals, you won’t fully receive their benefits for optimal health and well-being.
