How is Glutathione beneficial for health

Most of us are aware of antioxidants like Vitamin A, C and E but Glutathione(GSH) is a relatively unknown antioxidant which is mostly renowned among the scientific community for its multiple health benefits. It comprises mainly of three amino acids namely glutamine, glycine, and cysteine.

Glutathione is actively involved in processes like:

  • making chemicals and proteins which our body requires.
  • helps in building and repairing tissues.

Here are a few other health benefits of this master antioxidant:

  • Reduces Oxidative Stress and Cellular Damage
    An oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between the antioxidants and free radicals in our body. This may eventually lead to chronic illness like cancer and diabetes. Glutathione helps prevent cellular damage caused by free radicals and strikes a balance in our body.
  • Assists in Body Detoxification
    Glutathione effectively neutralizes and eliminates toxins thus assisting in body detoxification.
  • Prolongs Youthful Skin
    One of the most sought after properties of Glutathione is its anti-aging property. Premature aging or early aging is caused due to continuous exposure to UV rays of the sun. Glutathione helps protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun by minimizing free radical damage and in turn prevents signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
  • Lightens the skin tone
    Another popular benefit of the antioxidant is restoring skin to its purest and fairest tone by minimizing melanin synthesis.
  • Improves physical health
    Glutathione also improves the health of many organs like our gut, kidney, liver and heart by renewing and strengthening the gut line and preventing kidney, liver and heart ailments.
  • Prevents Cancer Progression
    Oxidative stress for long has been believed to be one of the leading causes of cancer. This suggests that a treatment with a potent antioxidant like Glutathione will help prevent cancer progression.

How does our body lose Glutathione?

Age, environmental toxins, poor nutrition and stress are some of the common reasons why Glutathione level decreases in our body. So even though the antioxidant is produced naturally in our body, one can take oral supplements along with a healthy diet to maintain adequate levels of this antioxidant in our bodies.
