Antioxidant - Glutathione

 

Glutathione [L-Glutathione, GSH] is an amino acid commonly referred to as as the toxic waste neutralizer of the body.

It is a small tripeptide made up of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate and glycine.

L-Glutathione is the body's most powerful antioxidant and detoxifying agent; especially in its "reduced" form; GSH.

GSH is present in nearly every natural substance, and has five major roles in the body:

  1. a reducing agent, nutritionally protecting the body against powerful natural and man-made oxidants. It maintains the iron of hemoglobin in its reduced (ferrous) state.
  2. a natural scavenger, helping the liver detoxify poison from the blood
  3. nutritionally maintains immune function
  4. protects red blood cell membranes
  5. a neurotransmitter, possibly being involved with thyroid production and lactation of women.

 

Benefits of Glutathione

Glutathione has shown to:

  • reverse the damage caused by oxidative stress to the body, relieving inflammation.
  • helps protec nerve cells from damage, which leads to peripheral neuropathy.
  • helps provide protection against HIV-1, low levels of glutathione in CD4 T-cells are linked to decreased survival rates for HIV-positive individuals.
  • help prevent cataract formance - glutathione levels in the eye decrease with age, significantly increasing the vulnerability of the lens to cataract formation; the leading cause of impaired vision. When proteins become oxidized within the lens of the eye, they become more opaque, clouding the lens, and stopping light from entering.  Glutathione prevents this oxidation.

in its L-Glutathione form, is a powerful, and available, antioxidant to the body. It protects sulfur-containing proteins from oxidizing or free radical damage.

Recent research has also found that low levels of glutathione also correlate to macular degeneration, the deterioration of the macular at the back of the retina.

Other compounds which are important in eye maintenance, are selenium, a potent antioxidant and precursor of glutathione, Vitamins C and E, and zinc, manganese and magnesium. All these elements are found in Ocu-Care.
