What is the role of glutathione in the human body?
Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide compound formed by condensation of L-cysteine, γ-L-glutamic acid and glycine through peptide bonds, and has two kinds of γ-glutamyl and sulfhydryl groups. Glutathione is available in two forms, oxidized (GSSG) and reduced (GSH), and the reduced form is commonly used in personal care products.
Glutathione is widely distributed in animal, plant and microbial cells, among which glutathione is abundant in animal and human viscera, wheat germ, and yeast, and a small amount is distributed in plant tissues such as vegetables. As an important biologically active substance in the body, glutathione has physiological functions such as delaying aging, anti-oxidation, anti-allergy, reducing fatigue and preventing diabetes.
The important role of L-glutathione reduced GSH powder in the body:
The main physiological function of glutathione is to scavenge free radicals, anti-oxidation, anti-aging, it is the main free radical scavenger in the body.
Glutathione has strong anti-allergic activity.
Both reduced and oxidized glutathione have a certain anti-aging effect, and have a certain whitening effect on melanin caused by ultraviolet rays.
In short, glutathione (GSH) supplement is an endogenous active peptide, which can achieve anti-oxidation and anti-aging effects by removing or neutralizing various harmful peroxides and free radicals produced in the human body.
