Glutathione, like cysteine, contains critical sulfhydryl (thiol) groups, making it a potent antioxidant. Toxic chemicals in nature and man-made can cause damage to the body by oxidizing fat in the body. This dangerous process is called peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation destroys the human cell membrane, seriously damages the function and structure of the cell membrane, affects the fluidity of the cell membrane and even damages the chromosome structure. Many industrial chemicals form peroxides, such as carbon tetrachloride, benzene, plastics, dyes, herbicides, and pesticides. They affect liver metabolism, and such peroxides can cause fatty liver, cirrhosis and even liver cancer.


However, the enzyme complex form of glutathione or cysteine called glutathione peroxidase is designed to reduce peroxides. This glutathione peroxidase antioxidant system includes glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase, which are derived from glutathione. The function of this enzyme system is to remove lipids. Glutathione peroxide and prevents the production of other free radicals, glutathione peroxide provides a free electron to convert hydrogen peroxide, working continuously.

The second complex enzyme is glutathione---S---transferase in the liver, where glutathione helps convert many heterogeneous compounds into less toxic substances , and then excreted from the body through the liver, bile, and colon.

The other functions of many glutathione, glutathione-S-transferase, and liver enzymes are still under investigation, but in one study it was found that all of these substances that inhibit chemical carcinogens had the ability to increase the risk of Glutathione-S-transferase activity in liver and small intestine.

Glutathione is an indispensable nutrient. When the enzyme that produces glutathione is lacking, it will affect the survival of the body. Glutathione is also one of many metabolites. To be more precise, lack of cysteine Acid will affect the amount of glutathione produced, so cysteine should be very important. When the body is in a toxic environment and state, the key is to have enough cysteine and glutathione in the diet. Peptides.

Foods rich in methionine and cysteine, including egg yolks, red peppers, muscle protein, garlic, onions, and asparagus; cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, mustard greens, and horseradish are also good sources of sulfur; egg whites and milk proteins are also Contains some sulfur.

The concentration of glutathione in liver cells is high. In addition to preventing fatty liver caused by thioamide drugs, carbon tetrachloride and other chemicals and cleaning agents, glutathione can also help prevent or It can even reverse fatty liver, cirrhosis, hepatitis and liver tumors caused by alcoholism.
