L-Glutathione Reduced Product Overview
Glutathione is a non-protein sulfhydryl tripeptide compound formed
by glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine through peptide bond
condensation. It is an active short peptide with wide usage.
Glutathione is soluble in water, dilute alcohol, liquid ammonia and
dimethyl formamide, but insoluble in ethanol, ether and acetone.
The solid of glutathione is relative stable and its aqueous
solution can easily be oxidized in the air.
L-Glutathione Reduced Function:
Reduced L-glutathione is a well-known tripeptide,
-glutamyl-cysteinyl-glycine, abbreviated GSH. It is the most
abundant low-molecular-weight thiol, and GSH/glutathione disulfide
is the major redox couple in animal cells. "Glutathione deficiency
contributes to oxidative stress, which plays a key role in aging
and the pathogenesis of many diseases (including kwashiorkor,
seizure, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, liver disease,
cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, HIV, AIDS, cancer, heart
attack, stroke, and diabetes).
L-Glutathione Reduced Application
Enhancing the immune system:
Body' s immune activity, involving unimpeded multiplication of
lymphocytes and antibody production, requires maintenance of normal
levels of glutathione inside the lymphocytes.
Antioxidant and free radical scavenger:Glutathione plays a central
protective role against the damaging effects of bacteria, viruses,
pollutants and free radicals.
Regulator of other antioxidants:
Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins
C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect your body against
Another major function of glutathione is in the detoxification of
foreign chemical compounds such as carcinogens and harmful
Dermatologists prescribe Glutathione for its only side effect:
Whitening of dark skin. People with darker skin tone report that
taking Glutathione capsules along with vitamin C for three to six
months or more actually lightens the color of their skin.
