What is Glutathione And Its Benefits?
A Glutathione is a tripeptide found in every cell of the body. It is critical to preserving the cellular integrity, and essential for optimal health. Glutathione is often called the “master antioxidant” and is essential for healthy immune function and detoxification processes. Reduced L-Glutathione is a natural compound made in the body from glutamic acid and the amino acids L-cysteine and L-glycine. As the body’s major cellular antioxidant, L-glutathione is crucial for scavenging free radicals. Consuming sulfur-rich foods in the diet such as garlic, onions and the cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, etc and bioactive whey protein is a great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis.
