Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant
Glutathione, also known as GSH, is a tripeptide, the most prevalent antioxidant produced by our body. It contains three amino acids such as glycine, glutamate (glutamic acid), and cysteine. Glutathione is found in every cell in the body and is very important for optimal health and essential in preserving cellular integrity.
Often called the “master antioxidant,” Glutathione is crucial for healthy immune function and your body’s detoxification processes. It offers countless benefits related to joints, eyes, brain, lungs and every system in your body.
Yet, research has shown that less than 6% of consumers are familiar with this antioxidant.
Healthy cells produce Glutathione, and if they run out, they will die. Production of Glutathione naturally declines with age, and cells begin to lose their ability to repair themselves and produce potent antioxidants.
Essential Benefits of Glutathione
- Helps protect cells from the damage caused by harmful free radicals
- Promotes detoxification and optimal cellular health
- Supports a healthy liver and immune system
If you don’t get enough Glutathione, you will have bigger risks to many chronic and aggressive illnesses. It helps repair damaged cells caused by stress, radiation, pollution, infection, and a host of other ailments.
In addition to its prevailing effects inside the body, Glutathione has also
been used to improve skin clarity, tone, and texture.
Glutathione as an Antioxidant
The fact that Glutathione exists within our cells means that it has the added benefit of being a powerful antioxidant. Vitamins C and E are the more well-known, and most people are familiar with them as they neutralize free radicals.
Glutathione, on the other hand, can be found in every type of our cells. It neutralizes free radicals and can reactivate other antioxidants, like Vitamins C and E.
Antioxidants like Vitamins C and E become unstable radicals after they neutralize the free radicals in our bodies.
The added benefit of Glutathione is that it helps recycle these unstable molecules and reactivate them, extending their abilities as antioxidants and helping our body fight against diseases.
That is why advocates of Glutathione suggest that this master antioxidant can work against cancer and other diseases.
Glutathione acts as a natural detoxifier in the body. It helps with eliminating harmful toxins in your body. Glutathione is also able to support the function of your body’s major detoxification pathways, including your kidneys, liver, GI tract, and intestines.
- Helps eliminate toxins, consumed chemicals, and possible carcinogens that the body has already absorbed
- Neutralizes and intercepts toxins in the GI tracts before they are even absorbed
Glutathione Promotes a Healthy Immune System
Glutathione maintains healthy immunity by replacing the body’s primary immunity and defense system.
It helps with fortifying your body against harmful infection and disease in two ways:
- It aids in the proper function of white blood cells (T-cell lymphocytes), the main defensive barrier of the immune system, by increasing their numbers
- It stimulates the production and healthy activity of natural killer (NK) cells
Glutathione as a Skin Brightener
Some research has suggested that Glutathione can help with skin brightening. Glutathione may be able to reduce the production of melanin by inhibiting tyrosinase activity and switching the eumelanin (brown and black pigments) synthesis to pheomelanin (red pigment) synthesis.
Glutathione for Sports Nutrition
Current research in male, resistance-trained athletes indicates that Glutathione may help support the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). It was also shown to aid in sustaining NO levels post-workout, which can help lessen fatigue and speed up recovery time.
