Glutathione, present in every cell of the body, is known as “the mother of all antioxidants” because of its ability to recycle vitamins C and E. Antioxidants like glutathione help protect the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, something that happens every day. By quenching free radicals, glutathione protects the body’s cells from reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, acting as a cofactor for other antioxidant enzymes in the process. Adequate glutathione levels can help maintain health and support longevity, at any age.
While regular glutathione in supplement form is of limited usefulness, as it easily breaks down during digestion, Natural Factors® Glutathione LipoMicel Matrix is packaged in an advanced form designed to enhance absorption. Protected within lipid molecules (micelles) that prevent oxidation in the digestive tract, Natural Factors® Glutathione LipoMicel Matrix can easily enter cells where it does the most good. Aside from being an antioxidant powerhouse, glutathione is also helpful for detoxification, immune support, and maintaining healthy aging.
In addition to protecting the liver, glutathione helps with the detoxification of both internal and external toxins, helping to transport them out of the cells. Glutathione may also help support innate immunity through NK cell activation and adaptive immunity through B and T lymphocyte production. Never far from anyone’s mind, support for healthy aging is yet another benefit of glutathione. By harnessing the power of “the mother of all antioxidants” we can decrease damage from free radicals, support immunity, maintain healthy detoxification capability, and support healthy and vital aging.
