If you’re like me and frequently have your ear to the ground when it comes to the supplement space, you may have been a little puzzled about one in particular: glutathione. It’s incredibly forceful when it comes to antioxidants, but not well understood. Intrigued, I did some research. Up ahead, everything you need to know, plus why you might want to add it to your diet.
What is it?
Here’s the scoop: glutathione is an antioxidant produced naturally by the liver. It’s considered to be the king of antioxidants and is essential for optimal health. But it’s also vulnerable — pollution and even poor diet can reduce your body’s level of glutathione.
How does it support health?
When taken in an oral form, like in Setria Glutathione, it can support immune health by stimulating production of white blood cells. It is believed to assist in the body’s detoxification process.
Taking glutathione can help the body maintain optimal glutathione levels and fight oxidative stress for overall good health.
How does it work exactly?
Think about glutathione as a sticky piece of tape. Made of sulfur, this sticky piece of tape has the ability to capture free radicals. Because these free radicals are bound to the glutathione, they can pass through the liver as opposed to being absorbed by it. There are clinical studies suggesting the perceived benefits of glutathione, ranging from supporting immune health to sports performance.
