Aliness L-Cysteine is a supplement that contains L-cysteine – an amino acid important for the proper functioning of the human body. The preparation comes in the form of vegan capsules and is suitable for people on a plant-based diet.
Cysteine is an organic chemical compound that belongs to the proteogenic amino acids. It is one of the few amino acids that contain sulfur in their structure. As an endogenous compound, cysteine can be synthesized in the body – it is formed from methionine in a transsulfuration pathway.
Cysteine acts as a building block in the human body. It is part of the keratin proteins, which are present in large quantities in hair and nails. Besides, it participates in the production of collagen, glycosaminoglycans, and chondroitin sulfuric acid. Thus, it has a significant impact on the condition of connective and cartilage tissue. Replenishing cysteine deficit helps to improve skin texture, as well as strengthen hair and nails.
Cysteine supports the protection of cells against oxidative damage. It has a thiol group in its structure, thanks to which it easily undergoes redox reactions and efficiently neutralizes free radicals. Besides, it is involved in the synthesis of glutathione – a powerful endogenous antioxidant. Impaired glutathione production is caused by oxidative stress and is characteristic of disease states.
Cysteine improves the body detoxification process. It has a strong affinity for metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and thus enhances their removal from the body. Besides, it protects against copper toxicity, and thanks to sulfur in its structure, it may also neutralize health-threatening cyanides.
Cysteine strengthens the immune system. Studies have shown that a serious deficiency of this amino acid may increase the body's susceptibility to infectious diseases. This is due to a reduced number of immune cells (mainly T lymphocytes and NK cells). At this point, it should be also mentioned that cysteine is a precursor to glutathione, which plays an important role in the immune responses of the body.
To sum up, Aliness L-Cysteine is a preparation that enriches the diet with an amino acid important for the proper functioning of the body. It is especially recommended for people complaining about the condition of hair, skin, and nails. It will also be suitable for people exposed to frequent contact with toxins.
L-cysteine has a high safety profile and can be used even for a long time. Some sources indicate a beneficial combination of cysteine and vitamin C. Usually, a 1: 3 ratio is recommended.
Cysteine supplementation should be considered by people complaining about the deteriorating condition of the skin, hair, and nails. It will also be beneficial for people exposed to toxic substances, e.g. tobacco smoke or alcohol.

Present in the protein product, in smaller amounts in corn and peanuts. The source of the acquisition are also concentrates and whey protein isolates, and preparations containing mixtures of amino acids. Not in the form mono-preparations. It is a component of detoxification, supporting the work of the liver supplements and in supplements improving the cosmetics of the body, usually in the form of L-cystine (two connected cysteine particles) or in the form of NAC.
