Glutathione is classified as a ‘tripeptide’, which means it is composed of three amino acids. The body produces glutathione from the amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. Glutathione is an interesting and important antioxidant because it is found within the cell where it has the power to keep the cell running smoothly by neutralizing free radicals.
It is also known to enhance healthy growth and activity of immune cells plus it enables the body to rid itself of unwanted toxins and heavy metals.
Low levels of glutathione have been implicated in many autoimmune disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
