How effective are Hythiol tablets 80 mg from Japan for skin diseases and radiation damage (L-Cystein, L-Cysteine)?
Hythiol tablets’s active ingredient is L-Cysteine, an optically active form of cysteine, a proteinogenic amino acid. Cysteine is involved in protein synthesis, detoxification, and various metabolic functions, including the production of collagen and maintaining skin elasticity. Also, cysteine becomes a building material for the antioxidant glutathione, and takes part in the metabolism of essential biochemicals, like coenzyme A, heparin, and biotin.
Who should use Hythiol tablets 80 mg from Japan?
Hythiol tablets are effective for the treatment of eczema, hives, drug eruption, toxic eruption, acne vulgaris and erythema exsudativum multiforme. Also,studies showed that L-Cysteine suppresses decreases white blood cell during irradiation and prevents DNA damage induced by UVA, UVB and visible radiation in human fibroblasts (N. Morley, A. Curnow et al. “N-acetyl-L-cysteine prevents DNA damage induced by UVA, UVB and visible radiation in human fibroblasts”. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology, 2003, 72(1-3): 55-60). That’s why Hythiol tablets are indicated for the treatment of leukopenia due to the radiation damage.
