What Is Glutathione?
In your body, glutathione contributes to many biochemical reactions: it helps defend cells from oxidative stress, helps other antioxidants get back to their active forms so they can continue working as antioxidants, and helps break down certain compounds that can contribute to oxidative stress. This supplement provides the sought-after reduced form of glutathione.
The reduced (aka active) form of glutathione is a perfect complement to a wellness-focused lifestyle!
- Helps defend cells from oxidative stress
- Acts as a cofactor for many important enzymes
- Helps break down compounds that add to oxidative stress
The body’s heavy-duty antioxidant defense
Generally, glutathione exists in several different forms, including both reduced and oxidized states. In your body, the reduced form of glutathione is better at scavenging for free radicals, fulfilling its role as an antioxidant. Only thing is, glutathione levels decrease as you age. So if oxidative stress is on your mind, consider adding a daily 500 mg dose of the reduced form of glutathione to your routine!
Why use glutathione?
Your body makes glutathione with three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamate. It’s considered the body’s master antioxidant because it protects cellular activity from within the cells, but it also regenerates other antioxidants and acts as a cofactor for many enzymes. Glutathione is also involved in the metabolism of certain compounds that can increase free radical activity.
Glutathione in the body
In the body, glutathione exists in two forms: reduced and oxidized states. When it’s in its reduced form, glutathione is actively scavenging for free radicals. When it’s oxidized, glutathione is inactive and cannot fulfill its role as an antioxidant. Our glutathione formula delivers 500 mg of the active form of glutathione (reduced glutathione) in every serving.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are substances that inhibit oxidation at the cellular level. They work by quenching free radicals, compounds that cause unwanted cellular reactions. Glutathione, aka the body’s master antioxidant, is a superstar at scavenging free radicals before they can cause cellular stress, protecting your cells so they can function optimally.
