L-Glutathione products are available in mass on the market today. Some products claim pure L-Glutathione, some are combined into blends, and some products even say they contain Reduced L-Glutathione. All these choices are great, but do you really even know what L-Glutathione is and what is does for your health?
L-Glutathione participates in numerous cell functions including the synthesis of proteins, regulation of enzyme activity, amino acid transport, and catabolism of reactive oxygen species. Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant available in the liver for detoxifying free radicals, and exogenous compounds.
Glutathione (or L-Glutathione) is a key amino acid produced mainly in the liver and found in all living cells. Glutathione is an important antioxidant in the body and is responsible for many cellular functions such as detoxification, amino acid transport, production of co-enzymes and recycling of Vitamins E and C. By serving as a critical nucleophilic scavenger, Glutathione helps block free radical damage to all types of tissues. It protects the body's lymphatic and digestive systems from unstable fats and oils. L-Glutathione also has been proven to greatly aid the body in detoxifying the liver of toxins and other damaging particles.
