Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifying compound consisting of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Glutathione plays a crucial role in the body’s detoxification process that occurs inside cells, particularly within cells of the liver, kidney, intestines, and lungs. As part of the cellular detoxifying process, glutathione binds to toxins and helps remove them from the body. A healthy balance of reduced and oxidized forms of L-glutathione supports the body’s ability to detoxify chemicals such as those found in environmental pollutants, smoke and exhaust, heavy metals, and metabolites from various types of drugs.
Produced in the liver, glutathione assists with detoxifying xenobiotics and heavy metals, neutralizes hydrogen peroxide, maintains the integrity of blood cells, and helps transport amino acids across cell membranes.
It aids in the breakdown of oxidized fats and is necessary for carbohydrate metabolism. Glutathione is also involved in metabolizing insulin and regulating blood glucose levels.
Glutathione exists in the body in 2 forms that recycle back and forth, a reduced (or "active") form and an oxidized form. The reduced form of Glutathione is an antioxidant that protects cells and tissues by scavenging free radicals.
