New York, NY – Glutathione, a naturally occurring chemical found in every cell of the human body, and its role in health and disease was the subject of a comprehensive scientific review published in the February 2011 issue of Natural Medicine Journal (www.naturalmedicinejournal.com). Dean P. Jones, Ph.D., Professor, Division of Pulmonary Medicine at Emory University compiled "The Health Dividend of Glutathione," which includes: an overview of glutathione and where it is found in the body; a review of how glutathione is maintained in tissues and body fluids; discussion of glutathione deficiency, the gap that exists between available glutathione and the amount needed for optimal health; and a summary of clinically supported strategies for improving the body's glutathione levels.
"Glutathione is one of the most extensively studied chemicals in the human body, and the relationship between low levels of glutathione and an increased risk for disease is well established," noted Dr. Jones. "However, simple strategies, including supplementing with glutathione or glutathione precursors, and consuming complementary antioxidants and zinc, are available to improve glutathione status in individuals with low levels."
More than 100 years of research and 81,000 scientific papers have established glutathione as one of the most important protective molecules in the human body. Glutathione is needed both for maintenance of normal metabolism and for defense against a range of diseases and toxicity mechanisms. Accumulating data has established that poor diet and age-related disease can create a gap between the body’s natural glutathione defenses and the levels needed for optimal health. Glutathione supplementation and lifestyle approaches can be used to manage glutathione status, thereby providing a heath dividend by protecting against disease development. Dr. Jones noted that a substantial amount of scientific evidence shows that supplemental glutathione is bioavailable.

Glutathione is a tripeptide of three amino acids and found in every cell in the body. Known as the “master antioxidant,” glutathione fights free radical damage, helps to support the liver so it can detoxify the body, as well as promotes a healthy immune system.
