Glutathione Overview

Glutathione Glutathione is a naturally occurring compound that is composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is found in nearly all cells in the body and plays a crucial role in many physiological processes, including as an antioxidant defense, detoxification, and immune function. Glutathione levels in the body can be decreased by a number of factors, such as aging, stress, poor diet, and exposure to toxins. Some people take glutathione supplements in the hopes of increasing their levels and potentially benefiting from its antioxidant properties. Glutathione supplements are available in various forms, including oral supplements, intravenous (IV) injections, and nebulized (inhaled) forms. Oral glutathione supplements are often in a liposomal form to improve absorption.
