Author: GSHWORLD Release time: 2023-07-17 Column: Product News


Clinically, drugs that can improve liver function, promote liver cell regeneration, and enhance liver detoxification are classified as liver-protecting drugs. There are many reasons for liver cell damage. Therefore, in liver protection treatment, the cause should be eliminated first, and then liver protection treatment can be effective.

Liver-protecting drugs are usually divided into eight categories: vitamins and coenzymes; antidote and liver-protecting drugs; anti-inflammatory and liver-protecting drugs; essential phospholipids; choleretic and liver-protecting drugs; enzyme-lowering drugs; hepatic encephalopathy drugs; and other drugs.

Reduced glutathione is a detoxifying and liver-protecting drug that can provide sulfhydryl groups to enhance detoxification.

Reduced glutathione consists of tripeptides containing active sulfhydryl groups consisting of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine.

Reduced glutathione combines with peroxides and free radicals in the body to resist the damage of sulfhydryl groups by antioxidants, protect proteins and enzymes containing sulfhydryl groups in cells, and resist their damage to organs.


(1) Liver disease: including liver damage caused by viruses, drugs, alcohol and other chemical substances. At present, there are more studies on the protective effect of GSH on alcoholic liver disease and liver fibrosis. The "second hit" theory of the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver believes that oxygen stress and lipid peroxidation are the main causes of fatty liver and liver fibrosis. basic mechanism. GSH can scavenge free radicals and resist oxidation through the combination of sulfhydryl groups and free radicals in the body.

(2) Tumor chemotherapy: especially high-dose chemotherapy, which can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and has no obvious impact on the effect of chemotherapy.

(3) Radiotherapy: It can reduce tissue damage caused by free radicals produced by radiation, especially diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal damage.
