Glutathione

Glutathione is a tripeptide made from 3 amino acids (glycine, cystine and glutamic acid) and is found in most cells within the body.



It is often referred to as the master antioxidant as it attacks oxidative damage in a number of ways. It can shield cell molecules from damage, directly quench the free radicals as well as target some of the route causes of oxidative stress including mercury and environmental toxins, transporting them out of the body.


It is involved in the detoxification of internal and external compounds by a number of mechanism facilitating their excretion from the body including phase 2 liver detoxification.


Part of the reason for reaching master status is it’s ability to re-generate other antioxidants like vitamins C and E when they are at the limit of their anti-oxidant capacity. Glutathione is also a co-factor for several anti-oxidant enzymes making it a great all-round team player.


In order to keep glutathione levels high within our bodies, there are a number of things we can do. Firstly, we can reduce our exposure to toxins, by doing so we reduce the need for glutathione to mop up the damage. We can also ensure we consume adequate levels of dietary cysteine (one of the amino acids making up glutathione) from poultry, eggs and whole grains.


Supplementation is also an option both in the form of N-Acetyl-Cysteine and glutathione itself.
