Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids – cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Found in all mammalian cells, especially within the liver, Glutathione possesses a unique property of being able to recycle other antioxidants – it is widely known as the “Master Antioxidant.”
As the body’s “Master Antioxidant”, Glutathione serves as an important line of defense against free radicals, chemical toxins, radiation, and heavy metals.
The health benefits of Glutathione have been cited in over 150,000 peer reviewed studies within PubMed and has been recognized by healthcare providers for decades as a means to assist the body by:
- Supporting a healthy immune system
- Assisting DNA repair and synthesis
- Protecting cellular health against oxidative stress
- Helping to eliminate toxins to support a healthy liver
As a key component for cellular health, Glutathione insufficiency due to age, injury, or genetics can negatively impact quality of life.
