Glutathione is a tripeptide that consists of glutamate, cysteine, and glycine. This compound is present in all eukaryotic cells of plants and animals where it occurs mainly in its reduced form (GSH). It is one of the most important antioxidants in our body.
The main tasks of glutathione include neutralization of free radicals, regeneration of other antioxidants (for example, vitamins C and E), reconstruction of damaged structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. Specialists clearly indicate that lowering the concentration of glutathione in the body usually foreshadows the development of a disease; it is typical for diabetes or AIDS. The demand for glutathione increases in case of alcohol abuse or nicotine addiction. It should be included in the supplementation in case of frequent contact with toxic substances such as cigarette smoke, pesticides, heavy metals.
We offer a wide selection of glutathione supplements. Even though the compound is difficult to absorb, our offer includes preparations that contain advanced forms of glutathione which are characterized by excellent bioavailability.
