What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is considered the most important antioxidant because it is the only antioxidant capable of working with enzymes. One enzyme, Glutathione peroxidase, works with Glutathione to prevent membranes from being oxidized. Glutathione also helps activate other antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E. Your liver harbors the most concentrated source of Glutathione because it is the organ of detoxification. Your body uses Glutathione to help provide detoxification support to protect you from pollution, radiation, drugs, carcinogenic chemicals and heavy metals.
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, and has been shown to be important to variety of health conditions. However, oral absorption is extremely poor rendering intravenous administration the preferred route. Intravenous glutathione treatment has been shown to be beneficial for conditions
Oral delivery of Glutathione is not well absorbed by human GI tract due to and enzyme called gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, which is present in the human GI tract and breaks down Glutathione. So if you are taking an oral Glutathione, the benefits are much more limited than getting it directly into your body and skipping the GI all together.
