Glutathione is considered the most powerful antioxidant produced by the body. It plays a major role in the detoxification and removal of toxins and cellular waste. It is involved in hundreds of vital chemical reactions in the body and contributes to our health and vitality in many ways.

Glutathione for improved energy
Glutathione supports a specific, crucial part of the cell called the mitochondria. Mitochondria are responsible for producing the energy needed for healing, repair, and proper function of every single cell in the body. Researchers are finding that sluggish and decreased mitochondria are at the root of most chronic illnesses, including fatigue, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and inflammatory conditions. Glutathione helps protect that mitochondria from oxidative stress and from the effects of inflammation and aging.
Glutathione for liver health and detoxification
The liver plays a major role in detoxification and waste removal by making enzymes necessary for the breakdown and removal of drugs, chemicals, and other foreign substances in the body. Glutathione assists in the production of these enzymes. When glutathione levels are low, the liver cells can become overwhelmed by toxins, leading to sluggishness and damage of these cells. Additionally, glutathione can counter the liver damage that occurs with regular intake of certain medications such as tylenol, chemotherapy, NSAIDS, statins, antivirals, antifungals, and acne medications.
Glutathione for skin brightening
Glutathione can help brighten and lighten the skin by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for giving skin its color. Often, melanin will build up and oxidize, creating a dullness and premature aging. Frequently this happens in clusters, causing “sun spots” or “age spots” throughout the body but especially in the face, arms, hands, and other areas with lots of sun exposure. Additionally, when melanin is oxidized it becomes less effective at protecting the skin from UV radiation, leading to increased skin damage and aging. Glutathione can help lighten the dark spots while also reducing inflammation and oxidative stress, thus protecting the skin from damaging effects of UV radiation.
Glutathione for neurological health
Inflammation and oxidative stress are among the biggest causes of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis. Glutathione has been shown to support neurological health by protecting the brain from stress and by promoting growth and survival of healthy brain cells.
Glutathione for autoimmune disorders
Glutathione can help with autoimmune disorders by regulating immune function and reducing inflammation. It can help create appropriate balance of the immune signals and decrease the signals from the body to attack itself. Also, it can help decrease the damage to organs and joints caused by rampant, widespread inflammation and oxidative stress.
Glutathione for cancer
Glutathione has been shown to play a role in cancer from several different angles. First, it helps to improve the function of mitochondria, the part of the cell whose dysfunction contributes to the development of cancer. Second, it helps to protect cells from DNA damage and mutations that lead to propagation of cancer cells. Third, it helps to decrease that inflammation that can drive many cancers. Last, it can enhance the efficacy and reduce the side effects of certain cancer medications and treatments.
