Glutathione: the most powerful antioxidant in our body

Updated: Sep 18, 2022

Glutathione is probably the most important substance in the body that works to eliminate toxins. We are constantly exposed to toxins on a daily basis. The importance of this antioxidant, and its powerful effect, has long been known to (orthomolecular) specialists. Consumers too are becoming increasingly aware of the powerful effects and importance of glutathione. A positive development in our opinion!

What is Glutathione and how do we get it?

Glutathione is a tricky word for a tripeptide. Simply put, it is a substance composed of a compound of three amino acids. In the case of glutathione these are the three amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamine. Glutathione is found in high concentration in all living organisms and in all body cells. In principle, the body can produce glutathione itself from the amino acids it is made up of. So under ideal conditions the molecule is constantly produced and transported naturally by our bodies. Foods from which we get glutathione or the three building blocks of the amino acids in high concentration are: asparagus, avocado, spinach, cauliflower and walnuts. Under normal circumstances, glutathione can be produced by the body as needed. However, with advancing age and increased oxidative stress, the body's own production can decline significantly. In addition, glutathione is used up in large quantities during illness, stress, fatigue and physical exertion. There are also a number of known causes of glutathione deficiency. Reasons for this are: radiation, infections, environmental toxins, smoking, medicine use, (top) sport and chemical pollution.

What is the function of Glutathione?

The power of glutathione lies mainly in the sulphur groups it contains. Sulphur is a sticky molecule and acts as a kind of 'flypaper' to which bad substances such as free radicals stick. Glutathione goes through all our cells to collect and then remove toxins and heavy metals. But there are more essential functions that glutathione supports in our bodies: DNA protection and repair - Glutathione has a protective effect on our cells and our DNA[SOURCE]. GSH, one of the three forms of Glutathione, has a strong influence on DNA damage and repair. When the level of Glutathione is sufficient, our cell nuclei and DNA are protected. Functioning of mitochondria - Glutathione has an important task in the process of making our mitochondria function effectively[BRON]. Mitochondria are responsible for cellular metabolism and energy production, among other things. Strengthen immune system - Glutathione also has an important function in strengthening our immune system[BRON]. It plays a role in many processes in our body that keep our immune system functioning optimally. This is especially true for the reproduction and activation of lymphocytes. These are just some of the benefits that Glutathione has in our bodies. It is also thought to be highly effective against inflammation and to improve liver function. The Mother of All Antioxidants? An exceptional function of glutathione is to recycle other antioxidants. It is the only antioxidant that constantly regenerates itself to neutralise free radicals. The amazing thing is that glutathione also does this with other antioxidants that have been oxidised. This makes glutathione very important for maintaining optimal levels of vitamins C, E, alpha-lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10. This unique function ensures that glutathione supports, increases and activates the entire capacity of our antioxidant system. These are the forms of Glutathione that we support A sufficient amount of glutathione in the body cannot be taken for granted. Therefore it may be necessary to take additional glutathione, especially at an older age. Liposomal Glutathione

Glutathione supplementation can be of great benefit to many people given the essential functions it performs in our bodies. However, a major problem arises here: the absorption of glutathione. The fact is that the cells in our gastrointestinal tract consume glutathione directly. The acidic environment of our stomach, among others, also breaks down the glutathione molecule. As a result, it rarely makes it into our bloodstream. And that is precisely what is so important. Vimergy Glutathione
