Vitamin U is not actually a vitamin, but is instead a term used to refer
to a substance called S-Methylmethionine. It's found in several different types
of food, and is used as a naturopathic supplement to treat a variety of health
problems. Though several studies have shown its effectiveness, the results are
not conclusive. As of 2012, there was no established Recommended Daily
Allowance (RDA) for this substance.
S-Methylmethionine is found in both plants and animals, and it can also
be made synthetically. The most common way to consume it is in liquid or spray
form, but it can also be taken in tablet form or directly from foods. The most common natural
sources are green cabbage leaves, alfalfa sprouts, spinach, kale, tomatoes,
celery, wheat, turnips, radishes, and parsley. Some health experts
recommend getting vitamin U from raw or fermented foods, since appears to be much
more effective when cold, and cooking may make it not work as well. Since there
is no RDA for
this substance and it does not have an identified toxicity level,
those interested in adding a vitamin U supplement to their diet should consult
a health care professional for proper dosing instructions.
Whether taken as a supplement or from foods, vitaminU has been shown
to be able to treat a variety of gastrointestinal conditions, including
ulcerative colitis, acid reflux, and
peptic ulcers. It may
also be able to treat skin lesions, improve the symptoms of diabetes, and
strengthen the immune
system. Some studies show that it can also help prevent liver damage by
protecting the liver from the effects of high doses of acetaminophen.
Additionally, it may be able to reduce allergies and sensitivities to cigarette
smoke and improve cholesterol levels. Many people also choose to use vitaminU as part of a
detox, since it may be able to help the body get rid of
The positive effects of S-Methylmethionine on the
gastrointestinal system were discovered by Dr. Garnett Cheney. The studies Cheney, G. 1952 and Cheney et al. 1956
demonstrated that a previously unknown substance in raw cabbage juice helped
soothe and heal peptic and gastric ulcers, sometimes faster than other means of
treatment. They also showed that the results were greatly diminished
if the juice was heated, which implies that the substance is very sensitive to high
temperatures. Cheney's work prompted the nickname "VitaminU" for this
substance due to
its ability to treat ulcers.
Subsequent studies also demonstrated the potential
benefits of this substance. Roediger
et al. 1996 demonstrated that S-Methylmethionine and similar
substances may have positive effects for those with ulcerative colitis, while Peltz et al. 2007
demonstrated that vitaminUmay prevent
liver damage. Shaw
et al. 2009 also showed that this substance may improve the
function of the intestines; however, the study was done on chickens so it's not
clear whether the results would be the same in humans.
administered as raw cabbage juice to 100 patients with peptic ulcer, was apparently
effective in promoting the rapid healing of uncomplicated peptic ulcers.
The evidence of therapeutic benefit was (1) the rapid relief of the symptom, pain, without the
use of any set plan of symptomatic treatment, and (2) ulcer crater
healing time (determined roentgenographically) considerably shorter than in
groups of cases, reported in the literature, in which “standard”
types of diet and drug therapy were employed.
