Can acetyl glutathione protect the liver?

Author: GSHWORLD Release time: 2024-06-14 Column: Product News


Acetyl glutathione (SAG) is another form of glutathione. As an antioxidant, SAG has a potential effect in protecting the liver from oxidative damage.

How does acetyl glutathione protect the liver?

Oxidative stress plays a key role in the development of liver disease. SAG can pass through the cell membrane, increase intracellular sulfhydryl groups, and fight liver damage.

1. Protect liver cells from CCI4-induced toxicity

2. Increase GSH levels and restore SOD activity

3. Reduce the secretion of pro-inflammatory cell molecules and produce anti-inflammatory effects

4. Reduce liver fibrosis and organ dysfunction


How should acetyl glutathione be used?

SAG can be used in combination with milk thistle and vitamin E. Studies have shown that combined use can alleviate cytotoxicity induced by oxidative stress. SAG is beneficial to maintaining the reduced state of cells and enhancing the antioxidant system. As a potential liver protector, SAG can reduce oxidative stress and inflammatory responses and protect the liver from damage.
