What are Hythiol tablets 80 mg for skin diseases, radiation damage (L–Cysteine, L-Cystein)?
The active ingredient of Hythiol tablets is L-Cysteine, an optically active form of cysteine and a proteinogenic amino acid. Cysteine plays an important role in protein synthesis, detoxification and many metabolic functions such as the production of collagen or maintaining skin elasticity. Also, cysteine is used as a building material for an antioxidant called glutathione and such important for metabolism biochemicals as coenzyme A and heparin.
Hythiol tablets can be used to treat eczema and hives, toxic eruptions, drug eruptions, acne vulgaris, and erythema exsudativum multifle.
