How it works
Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant, responsible for the health and wellbeing of every cell in the body.
Essentially, glutathione is a magnet passing through each cell, gathering up toxins and heavy metals in order to purge them from the body. Once a glutathione molecule gathers up these toxins, it is converted into its oxidised form – glutathione disulfide (GSSG).
Exogenous factors can further deplete glutathione levels, including: air pollution, toxins found in food and water, pharmaceutical medications, illness and diets high in processed foods. This makes it extremely important to directly supplement glutathione levels with acetyl glutathione or with precursors like N-acetylcysteine and R-ALA.
Glutathione levels naturally deplete with age, leaving the body increasingly vulnerable to infection, illnesses and disease.
The ratio of reduced glutathione to oxidised glutathione within the cells is used to measure cellular toxicity. This is regarded as the single best indication of overall health and wellbeing.
