Glutathione Supplement for Immune System and Skin Health

Glutathione Supplement for Immune System and Skin Health

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide compound formed by the condensation of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine through peptide bond, and is an active short peptide with a wide range of uses. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant found in both plants and animals, which plays an important role in organisms. The molecule is found in the food supply and in the human body where it acts as an antioxidant. As an important antioxidant and free radical scavenger in the body, it combines with free radicals, heavy metals, etc., so as to convert harmful poisons in the body into harmless substances and excrete them out of the body. Glutathione has two forms: reduced form (G-SH) and oxidized form (G-S-S-G). Under normal physiological conditions of cellular homeostasis, glutathione remains primarily in its reduced form.


5 Benefits of Glutathione 

A Potent Antioxidant

Glutathione plays an important role in the biochemical defense system of human body and has many physiological functions. Its main physiological function is to remove the free radicals in the human body. As an important antioxidant in the body, it protects the sulfhydryl groups in many proteins and enzymes. Biochemical studies of the effects of aging on the antioxidant systems highlighted the existence of age-related changes in the GSH content of the nervous system. Aging is often associated with impairments in CNS function, resulting from loss of neurons and leading to diminished cognitive performance. Our defense against oxygen radicals relies on the enzymes of the glutathione/thioredoxin antioxidant system, which inactivate ROS and NOS, glutathione peroxidase detoxifies peroxides, including H2O2 and peroxides that are generated during the oxidation of membrane lipids.[1]

For Skin Health 

Many free radicals produced by metabolism in the body will damage cell membranes, attack life macromolecules, and promote the aging of the body. GSH can remove free radicals and play a strong protective role. The latest research also shows that GSH can play an anti allergic role, prevent skin aging and pigmentation, reduce the formation of melanin, improve the skin's antioxidant capacity and make the skin shine.[2]

Improve Immune System 

Research shows that active glutathione (GSH) primes white cells such as natural killer (NK) and T cells, your body’s front-line infection fighters. GSH-enhanced T cells are able to produce more infection-fighting substances, controlling both bacterial and viral infections.[3]

Athletic Performance 

In a study of eight men receiving 1,000 milligrams of glutathione before exercise, the glutathione group performed better, felt less fatigued, and had lower blood lactic acid levels than the placebo controlled group.[4]


Clinically,glutathione plays a key role in detoxification, so it plays a significant role in purifying internal organs, such as repairing liver and kidney damage, eliminating heavy metals in the body, detoxifying acrylonitrile, fluoride, carbon monoxide, heavy metals, organic solvents and acetaminophen (acetaminophen), protecting red blood cell membrane, preventing hemolysis and reducing methemoglobin.

Care for Your Glutathione Levels in the Body

Of course, apart from aging, there are other factors that can affect your glutathione production as well.
There are some common health problems that you need to watch out for: stress, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, taking some prescription drugs, etc. Another major factor: excessive toxins in the body, or prolonged exposure to toxins and pollution in large quantities, which not only depletes glutathione, but inhibits the liver's ability to produce it. 
Low levels of glutathione are linked to accelerated aging and almost every chronic disease, especially those associated with aging like cognitive decline, type 2 diabetes, and many forms of chronic disease.
When you get old, you may run into several illness that may enharm your health. Low glutathione levels can also impair the immune system as well as the protective barriers in the respiratory and gastrointestinal tract.
So you should pay attention to your glutathione levels in the body.

Diets to Increase Your Glutathione Levels

Here are somme foods that may help you increase your glutathione levels:

Consume Sulfur-Rich Foods

Sulfur is an important raw material for synthesizing glutathione.Sulfur mainly comes from protein rich foods, such as beef, poultry and fish.

Increase Your Vitamin C Intake

Apples, oranges, cantaloupe, tomatoes, potatoes and cabbage are all rich in vitamin C. These antioxidants can eliminate free radicals generated in metabolism and reduce the risk of disease.

Foods Rich in Glutathione

Some foods contain glutathione, such as asparagus, avocado, okra, broccoli, etc.
