Glutathione is a tri-peptide made up of three amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine). It is a key element that prevents the formation of free radicals.
It helps protect against environmental toxins such as; radiation, smoking, x-rays, alcohol poisoning and the side-effects of chemotherapy treatments. It is said to have anti-aging properties. This may mean that if it helps to eliminate environmental toxins, then the body's cells may not age as quickly due to damage.
It is present in all cells in both plants and animals.
Always check with your physician first before taking any supplements.
