Gluthatione Injection

Glutathione (GSH) is a peptide made of three amino acids, a compound that performs several critical functions in the body and also serves as a powerful antioxidant. Gluthione plays so many roles that some researchers see cellular glutathione levels as a possible measure of overall health and predictor of longevity.

Glutathione catalyzes glutathione S-transferases (GST) and glutathione peroxidases (GPx). This allows it to neutralize toxic electrophilic molecules and reactive peroxides. Glutathione supports a detoxification system that is fundamental to the health of plants, mammals, and fungi.

Glutathione also supports multiple critical cellular reactions. Its presence in the glyoxalase system contributes to DNA and RNA nucleotide reduction, and this peptide also regulates protein and gene expression. Exchange reactions including thiol to disulfide ratios involve glutathione.

General information

Glutathione (GSH) is a peptide made of three amino acids, a compound that performs several critical functions in the body and also serves as a powerful antioxidant. Glutathione plays so many roles that some researchers see cellular glutathione levels as a possible measure of overall health and predictor of longevity.

Glutathione catalyzes glutathione S-transferases (GST) and glutathione peroxidases (GPx). This allows it to neutralize toxic electrophilic molecules and reactive peroxides. Glutathione supports a detoxification system that is fundamental to the health of plants, mammals, and fungi.

Glutathione also supprts multiple critical cellular reactions. Its presence in the glyoxalase system contributes to DNA and RNA nucleotide reduction, and this peptide also regulates protein and gene expression. Exchange reactions including thiol to disulfide ratios involve glutathione.

Glutathione can exist in the cells in either an oxidized (glutathione disulfide) or reduced (glutathione) molecular state. The ratio of reduced glutathione to glutathione disulfide is tightly regulated and critical to cell survival.

Glutathione deficiency puts the cell at risk for oxidative damage. An insufficiency or imbalance is present in many pathologies including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, cystic fibrosis (CF), and HIV.

While glutathione supports a healthy immune system, it isn’t classified as an essential nutrient; this is because the body does create its own supply from the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine.

Glutathione is present in every cell of the body. Antioxidants like glutathione can neutralize free radicals, which can otherwise cause cellular damage through oxidation. Since glutathione is naturally present within all types of cells, it’s considered one of the most important antioxidants in the body.
