Glutathione is known as the “mother of all antioxidants” and is made up of three essential amino acids: cysteine, glutamate and glycine. It is a naturally-occurring peptide produced by every cell in the human body. It is an extremely powerful antioxidant and key to almost all body functions. In fact, when Glutathione levels are depleted, cell death occurs. Keeping Glutathione levels high protects cells from damage by free radicals, among other benefits. It allows mitochondria to work at peak efficiency.
