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.

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 .!
This product really works!

I have noticed my skin is smoother all over my body - all of my skincare treatments work much faster as my skin is responding well. I actually feel calmer, and my eyes are brighter - all round - this product really does help turn back the hands of time!

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.
