What is Glutathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide with a gamma peptide linkage between the amine group of cysteine (which is attached by normal peptide linkage to a glycine) and the carboxyl group of the glutamate side-chain. It is an antioxidant, preventing damage to important cellular components caused byreactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.
Glutathione, especially those in liver cells, also can transform some very toxic bacterial and perhaps viral toxins in the same way, and cause them to be less harmful and more easily removed from the body. It helps in maintaining the immune system too.
Nowadays, glutathione is widely used in skin-care products and becomes the main composition of whitening injections. Meanwhile, a combination of glutathione and ascorbic acid will be more effective in whitening and antioxidant.
