Glutathione is one of the most common substances in the human body. It is present in almost every cell in the body. In addition, glutathione, as a small molecule active peptide in human cells, has the functions of maintaining normal immune system function, antioxidant and detoxification.
A healthy and well-nourished person is able to continuously eliminate toxins. Due to the increase in environmental pollution, glutathione stores in the human body are depleted faster and faster. The liver is the body’s detoxification organ and has high glutathione content. Research shows that reduced glutathione levels can cause damage to liver function, causing more and more toxins to remain in the body, causing damage to cells and organs. Unfortunately, intracellular glutathione levels decrease with age, disease, and even exercise. All cells in the body must produce glutathione on their own, so the raw materials for glutathione synthesis need to be constantly replenished.
When the concentration of glutathione in human cells is less than 40%, cell activity is reduced, immune function is suppressed, and the risk of disease increases. Oral glutathione supplementation can be taken to improve the body's ability to scavenge free radicals, repair cells damaged by free radicals, activate cell activity, enhance immunity, and reduce the risk of fatty liver, viral hepatitis, and drug-induced hepatitis. important life role.
Glutathione can protect skin cells to a certain extent, thereby preventing skin aging and pigmentation, reducing the formation of melanin, improving the antioxidant capacity of the skin and making the skin shiny. In addition, GSH is useful in treating corneal diseases and improving sexual function. It also plays a very good role.
The latest research shows that glutathione can effectively improve the ability of cells to protect against radiation and treat leukopenia and bone marrow tissue inflammation caused by radioactive drugs or radiation. It is an essential substance for the human body to resist radiation. When the body is exposed to radiation, reactive oxygen species and free radicals with oxidizing effects can be produced. The GSH antioxidant system in cells can effectively remove the reactive oxygen species and free radicals caused by radiation and reduce the damage of radiation to cells. On this basis, glutathione has the effect of inhibiting cell gene mutation and improving the immune system. High concentrations of glutathione can activate the activity of immune cells, accelerate the differentiation and proliferation of T cells and B cells, and improve the resistance to foreign pathogenic substances. Such as the ability of bacteria, viruses, and parasites to invade.
