Glutathione (GSH) was discovered in 1921 and its chemical structure was determined in 1930. It is a tripeptide, which is composed of three amino acids: glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. It is a peptide naturally synthesized by human cells. It is ubiquitous in various organs of the body. 70-80% is distributed in the liver and kidneys. The GSH content decreases with age.
Numerous experiments and clinical verifications, more than 80,000 medical and biological research results and literatures have revealed to us the eight physiological functions of glutathione: anti-aging and whitening, detoxification and detoxification, improving liver function, regulating immunity, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory Allergies, sleeping, anti-radiation.
Due to its excellent physiological functions and effects, glutathione has attracted more and more attention, and its application in the fields of medicine, health food and cosmetics has become more and more extensive.
1. Super detoxification, cytotoxin purifier.
Environmental pollution, stress, the addition of hormones and heavy metals in bad cosmetics, drugs, diseases, our cells are attacked by toxins every moment, and we are in crisis.
Glutathione has a powerful integrative detoxification effect. The liver, the body's primary organ for detoxification, contains significantly high levels of glutathione. The sulfhydryl group in glutathione is its active group, which can combine with certain drugs (such as paracetamol), toxins (such as free radicals, iodoacetic acid, mustard gas, lead, mercury, arsenic and other heavy metals) to make it water-soluble Sexual substances are excreted from the body.
2. Human endogenous antioxidant master, super anti-aging
Modern medicine believes that free radicals are one of the main causes of aging.
Glutathione is an endogenous antioxidant that exists in the human body itself. Glutathione not only directly participates in scavenging free radicals, but also regulates external antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, keeping them active (reduced) state.
3. Reduce melanin production and whiten the skin from the source
Glutathione can exert whitening effect at the source.
A. Combine with copper ions on the tyrosinase molecule, inactivate the activity of tyrosinase, and inhibit the production of melanin;
B. Reducing free radicals and peroxides, reducing the biochemical activity of melanocytes;
C. Reduce melanin production by interacting with dopaase;
D. Neutralize the toxicity of pigment cell toxic substances and protect pigment cells.
