- Associated with a decrease in cellular ageing and prevention of numerous diseases (Alzheimer’s cancer, diabetes).
- Described as the most important endogenous antioxidant.
Reduced Glutathione provides one of the most powerful antioxidants found in the body: glutathione. A tripeptide formed by cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine, this compound plays a key role in protecting our health. Present in every cell in the body, it combats the harmful effects of free radicals.
In excess, these highly-reactive species cause oxidative stress which is responsible for significant cell damage. Stimulated by factors such as UV exposure, pollution, smoking, and poor diet, oxidative stress increases cellular ageing and promotes the development of certain diseases. This glutathione supplement has been developed precisely to stop this process.
To compensate for the decline in its endogenous production, glutathione is now available in its reduced form, which is to say its most active antioxidant form, as a nutritional supplement. When it reacts with free radicals, reduced glutathione (GSH) is converted into its oxidized form (GSSG). Glutathione's antioxidant benefits can now be obtained with this dietary supplement which contains 500mg of GSH, with a suggested dose of one to two capsules a day. It is best taken with food and combined with other natural antioxidants in order to prolong its protective effects.
Reduced glutathione's detoxifying activity can also be boosted by combining it with DMSA, a powerful heavy metal chelator. To optimize the effects of this potent antioxidant, there is also a sublingual GSH supplement which is placed under the tongue for optimal absorption. Endogenous glutathione synthesis can also be stimulated by taking N-acetyl-cysteine and L-glutamine, two precursors of glutathione.

The humble grape is without doubt the star fruit of the autumn season! Its popularity, however, is not just due to its deliciously sweet taste but also – and perhaps more importantly – because it offers many benefits for our health.
Crowned the king of all antioxidants, glutathione is indeed an exceptional compound which nonetheless is often overlooked. Did you know, for example, that it plays a key role in the healthy functioning, equilibrium and defence of the body?
Within the scientific community, enthusiasm for turmeric’s anti-cancer virtues is palpable: over the past 30 years, the number of studies conducted on the plant has skyrocketed, with a steady increase in the rate of publication...
