Glutathione is a tripeptide, consisting of the three amino acids, cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine.  Glutathione is found and manufactured in every cell in the body, but is found in highest concentrations in the heart, muscle tissue and the liver.  Glutathione is critical for healthy immune system function and necessary for various liver detoxification processes.  Glutathione also acts as an antioxidant that acts to prevent oxidative stress in most cells and help to trap free radicals that can damage DNA and RNA, Milk Thistle Extract and Alpha Lipoic Acid are included to enhance Glutathione's liver supporting properties.

It is an antioxidant that our body produces from three basic amino acids that are found in our food. Our body makes it and uses it to combat free radicals, that are extremely aggressive and attack the molecules that make up the cells in our body. They change the chemical structure of the molecules in our cells and make them ineffective and can kill the cell, makes it ineffective, or turn it cancerous. L-Glutathione and other antioxidants attack the free radicals and destroy them before they have a chance to attack the cells.

It is is one of the most effective antioxidants that our body produces. It works to protect our bodies from the thousands of daily hazards that we are exposed to such as pollution, second hand smoke, alcohol, and food chemicals and poisons. In fact, it is so effective that some researchers believe that it can actually slow down the aging process. Glutathione has the added benefit as an antioxidant because glutathione exists within the cell. Glutathione is found in every type of cell, including cells in the immune system. Glutathione helps to fight against disease, and is considered the master antioxidant.

Glutathione levels are key to the proper function and the vibrant life of every cell in your body. In fact, glutathione is required to preserve telomere length - the gene-protecting buffers that you need for healthy DNA function and cellular division. The brain and nervous system are especially prone to oxidative stress. Glutathione helps support optimal brain cell activity. Antioxidants are rapidly depleted, but glutathione preserves their strength and activity, so you get more from your healthy diet and supplement regimen.Glutathione is one of the most important compounds in your body. It is so crucial that your body makes its own, creating it from the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. It is required for cellular defense, detoxification, and fighting the DNA-damaging risks of oxidative stress. Ideally, our cells would be full of active glutathione. But that is not always the case. Just when we need it the most, glutathione levels can drop. This is due to age, health challenges, environmental factors, genetics, or a combination of factors.
