WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE?
Glutathione is a natural compound found in the human body made from 3 amino acids: Cysteine, Glutamine and Glycine. Cysteine is one of the amino acid for the synthesis of Glutathione, which is very critical in detoxification. Cysteine has mucolytic properties, and is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier. Glycine, part of the thiol group, which serves as a reducing agent to prevent oxidation of tissues. Glutathione is normally produced by the body in response to today’s environment such as pollution from the air we breathe, the water we drink, chemicals and pesticides in the food we eat that causes damages in our cells and circulatory system. 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?
- metabolize carbohydrates
- aid in the oxidation of fats
- prevent cells oxidation
- protect red and white blood cells
- build healthy immune response
- protect the system against oxidative damage
- slow ageing and improve skin condition
THE DIETARY SUPPLEMENT IS ALSO KNOWN TO BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING:
- people who smoke
- people undergoing chemotherapy
- people with low sperm count
- people with liver problem
- people who drink alcohol
- people who work out regularly/body builders
- people with weak immune system
- people who are regularly exposed to chemicals/pesticides
- people who wish to have fairer & whiter skin
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 transforms them into a form that can be easily flushed out of the body via enzymatic pathways.
IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER Immune Depressed individuals have lower Glutathione (GSH) levels when fighting disease. Lymphocytes, cells vital for your immune response, depend on GSH for their proper function and replication. Cellular depletion of Glutathione has been implicated as a causative or contributory factor in many pathologies including Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, 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
DETOXIFIER Glutathione detoxifies many pollutants, carcinogens and poisons, including many in 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. In the liver we find very high concentrations of Glutathione, 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.
