What is Glutathione?

Glutathione naturally exists in human bodies. However, there is a precipitous drop in Glutathione levels as we age.
Glutathione is a tri-peptide of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. It is a predominant non-protein thiol. Glutathione is listed as API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) in Japan but it is widely used as a functional food and dietary supplement in many markets around the world. It is essential for the survival of all living organisms.
However, as we age, there is a precipitous drop in Glutathione levels and lower Glutathione levels are implicated in many diseases and disorders. There are many Glutathione reducing factors such as stress, UV, tobacco and alcohol use. Therefore, ideally we should supplement Glutathione in our bodies.
