Glutation is called a "master antioxidant" or "mother of antioxidants" due to its strength. Our body needs glutathation for antioxidant protection, sufficient detoxification and protection against aging and cell damage (Antiage).
Unlike most antioxidants, glutathione produces our body itself, in the liver. The role of antioxidants is to protect cells from the effects of harmful substances (free radicals), which damage cells in the body and trigger almost all serious diseases (Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, hepatitis, diabetes or cancer). Free radicals are thus considered to be the main cause of aging. During every process that takes place in the human body - from respiration through digestion to movement - free radicals are formed. Although these functions are essential for life, in addition to beneficial substances, harmful substances are also formed in their process. Thanks to antioxidants, the body can deal with toxic substances without us realizing it. When the body is deficient in glutathione, pollutants damage cells and gradually cause some organs to malfunction. High depletion of glutathione in the body is observed in athletes, whose immunity is significantly suppressed after high physical activity and they get into the so-called immunosuppressive window. In some countries, glutathione is even used as a drug or supportive treatment for viral diseases and their consequences.
The detoxifying function of glutathione is mainly related to the liver, which is the main detoxifying organ in the human body. Glutathione traps pollutants (free radicals, heavy metals) in the body and turns them into harmless substances that we can safely excrete from the body through the kidneys or liver. It helps the liver function properly, strengthens it and supplies it with energy. Proof of this is the fact that the liver produces glutathione for its own needs.
• L-glutathione - a reduced form of glutathione
• Acid-resistant capsule - to protect glutathione from degradation in the digestive tract (higher absorption)
