Metallothionein: Multifunctional Ingredient
Metallothioneins (MTs) were discovered in 1957 by Margoshes and Vallee and identified as low molecular weight and sulphydryl rich proteins of approximately 6500 Dalton with a composition of approximately 30% thiol-containing cysteine residues.
The most potent antioxidant against a wider range of free radicals, including hydrogen peroxide and lipid peroxides and the most active radicals: hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite - 800 folds more effective than Glutathione (GSH)
50+ years of research, over 10,000 scientific publications documenting
MT2As efficacy in preventing or treating disorders:
a. Parkinson - Alzheimer’s and other Neurodegenerative disorders
f. Diabetes – Type 1 - 2
h. UV skin damage
i. Muscle regeneration
When oxidation or injury occurs, MT is the first antioxidant to be released to
combat oxidative stress
MT is the only scientifically proven human protein antioxidant to prevent diabetes and it complications.
MT plays a major role in protection against oxidative stress induced in mitochondria.
Metallothionein regulates intracellular zinc signaling and protect against apoptosis by distributing cellular Zn.
MT2a protein bind metal ions, scavenge reactive species, and respond to changes in intracellular redox potential
MT2a is a safe and natural means to help manage Diabetes and related diseases, with no known side effects.
MT / MT2a supplementation is required for general health, wellness and fitness in addition to helping stabilize blood sugar levels.
Produced as a liquid-soluble dry powder with a long shelf-life, MT2A is easy to store & transport.
