Glutathione is the most important hydrophilic antioxidant, which protects your body from damage to cells caused by free radicals. It is essential for the immune system’s proper functioning and is vital in building and repairing tissue.
Glutathione (GSH) is often referred to as the body’s master antioxidant. It is found in virtually every cell of the human body. Produced by the liver, Glutathione is made up of three amino acids: L-cysteine, glycine, and L-glutamate.
This “master” antioxidant primarily helps your body fight disease and injury by binding to free radicals (causing oxidative stress) and facilitating their removal from your body.
Glutathione neutralizes free radicals such as superoxide and Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) like hydroxy radicals, peroxynitrites, and hydroperoxides, all of which are products of oxygen metabolism in the mitochondria. Free radicals and ROS can cause damage to DNA, proteins and cell membranes altering function, causing mutations and possibly leading to chronic illness like cancer or heart disease.
Detoxification is another major function of Glutathione. GSH attaches to substances like heavy metals and xenobiotics, molecules that need to be excreted, forming “conjugates” and making them easier to be eliminated. The conjugates formed are usually excreted from the cell and eliminated by the liver into bile and the kidneys into urine.
Glutathione supports the protection against a wide range of health problems, including atherosclerosis, Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, alcoholism, asthma, cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, hepatitis, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, glutathione slows the aging process and preserves memory.
Free radicals are atoms with an odd number of electrons and are a byproduct of cellular oxidation. Free radicals can be harmful to the body when they interact with certain types of molecules in your body.
Our bodies can tolerate a certain amount of free radicals; but, when these atoms accumulate faster than we can process them, our bodies start to accumulate damage. Exercise, stress, illness, medication, and exposure to environmental toxins such as heavy metals or pollution can all contribute to increased production of free radicals.
Free radicals can cause DNA damage, impairing cellular function or killing cells altogether. Damaged cells open the doorway to potential disease and illness. That’s where antioxidants come in. Antioxidants are stable molecules that bind to free radicals, stopping potential damage, and assisting in removing free radicals from your body.
Antioxidants occur naturally in many types of food, especially citrus fruits. Certain types of vitamins, such as vitamin E and vitamin C, are antioxidants that are easy to incorporate in your diet to help fight the damaging effect of free radicals.
GLUTATHIONE is another type of antioxidant that can easily be added to your wellness routine, helping prevent the damage that contributes to aging and illness.
The accumulation of free radicals over the years can accelerate how quickly your body ages.
A greater concentration of free radicals may lead to more cell damage, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, dull skin, and lower energy levels associated with aging.
By getting rid of free radicals before they can build up and cause cellular damage, glutathione can slow the aging process and help you keep a youthful and radiant appearance.
Free radicals naturally occur as a result of the cellular oxidation process – that is, the process by which cells use oxygen to generate energy. When you exercise, your body needs more oxygen than usual to maintain your performance. The end result is an increased output of free radicals, which in turn can lead to the accumulation of oxidative stress damage.
The end result is an improved recovery time, decreased muscle damage, and decreased cellular damage from free radicals so that you can improve your performance quickly.
GLUTATHIONE holds many anti-aging benefits. Since it is a natural detoxifier, it improves the health of the body’s cells to reverse aging. Glutathione protects the skin against oxidative damage which leads to wrinkles – making it an excellent form of anti-aging skincare. It prevents or improves acne, wrinkles, and crow’s feet via detoxification of the skin and body. It also eliminates and gets rid of age spots, liver spots, brown spots, lentigines, and dark circles under the eyes.
GLUTATHIONE is not effective when ingested orally because the enzymes in your stomach dissolve the bonds between the amino acids before it can be effectively absorbed. This is why intravenous (IV) GLUTATHIONE is the best way to increase the amount of this antioxidant in your body.
