Glutathione is a small molecule thiol abundant in eukaryotes, which plays a key role in oxidative metabolism. Mitochondria, the major organelles of the oxidation reaction, must maintain sufficient levels of glutathione to protect themselves.
GSH is the only antioxidant that has a self-circulating mechanism in the body. After GSH is oxidized into oxidized glutathione (GSSG) in the body, GSSG can be converted back to GSH through the action of glutathione reductase and coenzyme. Restoration" state.
At the same time, GSH can assist other "exogenous" antioxidants without self-circulation function, such as VA, VC, VE, etc., to circulate in the body. GSH works well in combination with major antioxidants such as Coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid, and selenium. Through these, it will help to delay aging and keep the skin clear and bright.
What happens when GSH is missing?
After human nutrition is absorbed by the intestines and stomach, it will eventually be converted into energy in the "mitochondria" in the cells. In this conversion process, GSH is the necessary substance to provide redox. The main organ responsible for detoxification in the human body is the liver, and the main detoxification substance in the liver is GSH, which is why 70-80% of GSH in the body is concentrated in the liver. GSH is the source of nutrition for various immune cells, and the immune system in the human body cannot live without GSH.
For the excessive oxidation of free radicals in the body, GSH coordinates many antioxidants to exert a comprehensive antioxidant function. If the GSH content in the body is low, it will not be able to maintain the health of the body and the quality of life.
Supplementing a certain concentration of GSH can increase the content of intracellular GSH. It can effectively improve the function of the body, through various channels, self-repair, anti-disease and anti-aging.
