What Does Glutathione Do?

Glutathione as a Detoxicant

Supplemental detoxicants become necessary as our environment becomes increasingly polluted. Our food and water sources are contaminated with chemicals. One of our main defenses against pollutants is glutathione, which is present in the liver in high concentrations. Glutathione acts as a detoxifying agent by combining with undesirable substances and ridding the body of them through urine and bile. It is important to note that unless the Colon, Liver and Blood are also detoxified, the benefits of Glutathione as a detoxicant may be minimized.

What Does Glutathione Do?

The strong antioxidant effect of glutathione helps keep cells running smoothly and research has shown that it also helps the liver remove chemicals that are foreign to the body, such as drugs and pollutants.
Evidence for the important role that glutathione plays in health comes from studies in people who are severely ill.   If you look in a hospital situation at people who have cancer, AIDS, or other very serious disease, almost invariably they are depleted in glutathione.  The reasons for this are not completely understood, but we do know that glutathione is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health.

Enhancing the Immune System - Your bodies immune activity, involving unimpeded multiplication of lymphocytes and antibody production, requires maintenance of normal levels of glutathione inside the lymphocytes.

Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavenger - Glutathione plays a central protective role against the damaging effects of bacteria, viruses, pollutants and free radicals.

Regulator of Other Antioxidants - Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect your body against disease.

A Detoxifying Agent - Another major function of glutathione is in the detoxification of foreign chemical compounds such as carcinogens and harmful metabolites.
