Glutathione, the ‘Master Antioxidant’ is responsible for so many of the critical processes in the body that it is almost impossible to overstate its importance. From glutathione’s role in smooth cell function, protein synthesis and amino acid transport to assisting vitamin C, vitamin E, and CoQ10 in helping to protect the cell, it is evident that glutathinone is the body’s primary antioxidant defense system. Here are 3 more areas in which glutathione is critical:
1. Detoxification: It enables the body to eliminate toxins and poisons by providing protection against chemicals that promote cell transformation, also known as cell death.
2. Controls immune cells: Gluathione regulates and regenerates our immune cells. In fact, people with chronic illnesses such as AIDS, cancer and other autoimmune diseases tend to have very low levels of glutathione.
3. Skin health: Glutathione protects enzyme proteins that inhibit collagen-digesting enzymes that cause damage to the skin, leading to wrinkles, or in the area of acne lesions, leading to scars.
