Reduced glutathione (GSH) occurs naturally in all human cells. GSH is a cofactor for dozens of enzymes involved in detoxification. As an antioxidant, it directly quenches several reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Numerous structures and functions in the body receive benefit from maintaining normal levels of glutathione, such as hepatic support, pulmonary health, immune function, bowel health, carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular health, cognitive health, and eye health.
The liver is the largest reservoir for glutathione in the body. A potent endogenous antioxidant, glutathione is essential for phase I and phase II liver detoxification. Unfortunately, lifestyle issues and conditions that negatively affect liver health usually result in a decreased amount of liver glutathione.
Maintaining optimal levels of glutathione appears to be important for supporting cognitive function, especially as we age. The normal process of aging is associated with a decrease in glutathione regulation, which can result in increased oxidative activity. Less than optimum levels of glutathione are observed in individuals experiencing a decline in cognitive function. Conversely, individuals living over 100 years tend to have higher glutathione reductase activity.
A common mistaken belief is that glutathione is not well absorbed when it's taken orally, but significant data confirms it is efficiently absorbed across the intestinal epithelium by a specific uptake system.
Glutathione-SR from Thorne Research represents an important breakthrough in glutathione supplementation. Absorption of oral glutathione can be affected by stomach acid or enzymes in the duodenum, which can break glutathione into its amino acid components. However, the sustained-release properties of Thorne Research's Glutathione-SR protect it from stomach acid and digestive enzymes, allowing slower release and a more steady level in the blood of this essential nutrient.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This stuff works not a doubt. I've tried two other company's and this works better regardless of the low dose. Skin and sleep improved. You can also raise glutathione through milk thistle, selenium, non-denatured whey protein, and msm. Update: I went off these for a while to try another leading brand and have to say these work much better with my system. The problem is the price though!! Should be half the price or double the quantity .!
I've been taking this fantastic health supplement and a critical life-giving molecule for over 12 months now. For me it's an additional detoxification software, to supplement diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle. Glutathione is helping my immune system do its job of fighting infections - I have never been sick with cold or flu since I started taking it. Plus my levels of energy have improved and I don't feel tired any more, even after a long day at work. I trust Thorne Research - they offer great quality supplements and I am also taking their vitamin D3. I am aware of a liposomal version of Glutathione available on iHerb but I found the taste of it really unpleasant. My mantra is you have to enjoy what you are taking, otherwise there's no point in taking it!
a real difference in general health
Posted by Reviewer2054670 on May 25, 2016
The effects are both noticeable and subtle. I feel like I have more energy and my mind is clearer. I feel less inflammation in my body. More than anything a general sense of wellbeing bringing me closer to homeostasis. It's expensive but worth it for me. Also helped with my very sensitive tummy!

This mother of all antioxidants helps with almost all diseases. I take it for the inflammation of endometriosis, but it's also helped me with anxiety, depression, and sleep.
Great Liver Protector

I feel that this helped to detoxify my liver. While taking it, I feel less sluggish and bloated. As an added benefit, glutathione seems to help even out my skin tone.
