Found in every cell of the body, this amino acid directly detoxifies the body of harmful free radicals and toxins that disrupt normal body processes, cause damage, degeneration, disease, and premature aging in the body. It gathers these toxins up, neutralizes them and facilitates their excretion from the body.
Glutathione is also known as the “master antioxidant” due to its ability to recycle other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E, CoQ10 and alpha lipoic acid.
The human body produces its own glutathione but this ability declines with increasing age. This decline leaves the body susceptible to free radical attack, disease and degeneration.
Research has shown that almost all very ill patients suffering from different diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, liver disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, autism and arthritis all have deficient glutathione levels.
Increasing glutathione levels in the body improves the healing process and wellbeing.
Boosts immune function– Increases body’s ability to fight infection, cancer, and other diseases.
Fights inflammation- Chronic inflammation is a leading cause of severe health problems and diseases that range from heart diseases to cancer. Low GSH levels are associated with chronic inflammation.

Energy production- Protects mitochondria, energy producing cells
Improves brain function– Detoxifies and protects and the brain from harmful toxins and heavy metals. Helps protects and improve cognitive function, mental focus, memory and also enhances mood.
Fights liver disease– (hepatitis, fatty liver, cirrhosis)
Fights lung disease– Asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.
