Glutathione is a tripeptide made up of Glutamate, Cysteine and Glycine, all very important amino acids. It can be found in both oxidized and reduced forms. The reduced form has antioxidant properties that keep cells safe from being harmed by free radical molecules. Glutathione in a reduced state can be found naturally within cells.
Glutathione Reduced facilitates the transformation from carbohydrates to energy and stops oxidized fats from collecting in the body. Glutathione also keeps up red blood cell strength while using them as a transport mechanism to carry nutrients throughout the body. In order for the immune system to function correctly, reasonable Glutathione levels must be consistently maintained throughout the body, and it must be present in order for the replication of important immune system lymphocyte cells to take place.
Glutathione is important when it comes to the transportation of amino acids through cell membranes, and it is also a necessary component for some enzymatic reactions to take place such as catalysis, signal transduction, metabolism, apoptosis and gene expression. It helps to provide direct protection for the liver and also keeps the immune system healthy and stimulated. Regular Glutathione can be found naturally from a variety of sources such as fruits, vegetables and various meats including fish. Sources particularly rich in Glutathione content are asparagus, walnuts and avocado.
