It has been widely heralded for its importance in improving health and long life. Glutathione in increased doses has also been found to have the beneficial side effect of WHITENING THE SKIN. WHAT ARE THE USES OF GLUTATHIONE? – metabolizes carbohydrates – aids in the oxidation of fats – prevents cells oxidation – protects red and white blood cells – builds healthy immune response – protects the system against oxidative damage – slows ageing and improves skin condition.
GLUTATHIONE as ANTIOXIDANT – It is a powerful anti-oxidant that protects the body by targeting and destroying reactive oxygen molecules and free radicals. It is found in high concentrations in the liver, where it binds to heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, chemical pollutants and carcinogens, and then transforms them into a form that can be easily flushed out of the body via enzymatic pathways.
GLUTATHIONE as IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER – Cellular depletion of Glutathione has been implicated as a causative or contributory factor in many pathologies including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, cataracts, arteriosclerosis, cystic fibrosis, malnutrition, aging, AIDS and cancer. In addition, Glutathione is essential in supporting the immune system, including natural killer cells, and in the maintenance of T-lymphocytes.
GLUTATHIONE as DETOXIFIER — Glutathione detoxifies many pollutants, carcinogens and poisons, including fuel exhaust and cigarette smoke. It retards damage from radiation such as seen with loss of the ozone. The liver is the main detoxification organ of the body. We find very high concentrations of Glutathione in the liver, as it is a major factor in numerous biochemical detoxification pathways. Numerous studies have demonstrated that patients with compromised liver function due to alcohol abuse have significant reduction of Glutathione in the liver.
