Why is glutathione so important?

Q: Something about Glutathiose:
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant naturally produced by the body. It is composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. Glutathione plays a crucial role in protecting cells and tissues from damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress.

Q: Because of its powerful properties, glutathione can be used as for:

1. Clinical drugs
Glutathione drugs, widely used in clinical, as a therapeutic or adjuvant therapy drugs. In recent years, Western scientists, especially Japanese scholars, have found that glutathione has the function of inhibiting HIV.Recent studies have also shown that glutathione can also prevent skin aging and pigmentation, reduce the formation of melanin, improve the skin’s antioxidant capacity and give skin a glow.

2. Antioxidant effect
As an important antioxidant in the body, glutathione can remove free radicals in the body, so as to ensure the normal play of molecular physiological functions such as proteins and enzymes. Glutathione is abundant in human red blood cells, which is of great significance to protect the sulfhydryl group of proteins on the red blood cell membrane in a reduced state and prevent hemolysis.

3. Food additives
Adding glutathione to food can have unexpected effects:

1, added to flour products, can play a reducing role. Not only can shorten the time of making bread to one half or one third of the original, but also greatly improve the working conditions, and play a role in strengthening food nutrition and other functions.
2, add it to yogurt and infant food, equivalent to vitamin C, can play the role of stabilizer.
3. Mix it into the fish cake to prevent the color from deepening.
4, added to meat products and cheese and other foods, with the effect of strengthening flavor.

Q: Possible adverse reactions:
1. Mild oral leukoplakia, ulcers, tongue coating stripping, pain and other oral discomfort [10].
2. Rare sudden rash.

3. Occasionally have anorexia, nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, etc. After withdrawal, the injection disappeared. Slight pain in the area.

Glutathione is relatively stable in its solid state, and its aqueous solution is easily oxidized to oxidized glutathione (GSSH) in air.
