Glutathione is an important antioxidant, which prevents the damage to cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals.
The primary purpose of Glutathione is to induce cellular detoxification: the regeneration and recycling of new and damaged cells. This occurs on an intra-cellular level, i.e. it happens within the cell itself. This is one of the key reasons why Glutathione is distinctly different to other anti-oxidants.
Glutathione plays a significant role in immune function. It encourages the T-cell function that’s essential for a healthy immune system and protects from environmental toxins. Additionally, glutathione is essential in a broad range of metabolic processes:
Glutathione acts to neutralize a toxic metabolic byproduct: Methylglyoxal
Glutathione is involved in the protein disulfide bond rearrangement that is necessary for the synthesis of one third of the body’s proteins
It protects the body from the oxidative damage caused by glutathione peroxidase by acting as a helper molecule for certain enzymes
The liver uses Glutathione to help detoxify fats before the gallbladder emits bile, supporting healthy digestion
Glutathione may also be crucial in the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, and according to recent studies alterations in this metabolic pathway, can influence cell survival profoundly. Glutathione may be responsible for several vital roles within a cell besides antioxidation:
Maintenance of the redox state (chemical reactions in which the oxidation state of atoms are modified)
Modulation of the immune response
Detoxification of foreign bacteria and viruses
Dosage For Health Benefits:
A dosage of either 600mg or 1200mg of Glutathione will give the body the required amount of Glutathione to repair, and regenerate new cells. Add an equal dose of Vitamin C injection for maximum efficiency.
Dosage For Skin Whitening Benefits:
To induce a skin whitening result a double or triple dosage of Glutathione is required as it’s the excess that creates the skin whitening result. Add an equal dose of Vitamin C injection for maximum efficiency.
