Biochem/physiol Actions

S-Methyl-L-cysteine (SMLC) is a substrate in the catalytic antioxidant system mediated by methionine sulfoxide reductase A (MSRA). SMLC is naturally present in garlic, cabbage, and turnips and has been studied as a theurapeutic for neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson′s.
