Glutathione’s importance in maintaining health

Date

Category

Glutathione (GSH) is the body’s powerful weapon in the fight against both acute and chronic inflammation. Researchers generally agree that chronic inflammation can progress slowly, even from a younger age, but is nevertheless the cause of most chronic diseases and threatens people’s ongoing health and longevity.

Chronic inflammation fundamentally means a constant excess of free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS) inside the cells. While these ROS continue to exist inside cells, the damage continues resulting in chronic disease. Maintenance of healthy levels of antioxidants is essential to reduce the risk of being exposed to excess free radicals. By far, the most abundant antioxidant produced by cells is glutathione (GSH).

Apart from the aging process and chronic disease, glutathione (GSH) also plays an important role in the health of the body’s immune system, resistance to cancer and infectious diseases as well as in sports recovery.
