Glutathione: a key antioxidant for the body’s well-being
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is an antioxidant tripeptide, also known as L-glutathione, composed of three amino acids: glutamate (the most important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system), cysteine and glycine, which are naturally found in high concentrations in virtually every cell in our body. Glutathione will neutralize reactive oxygen species and thus prevent cellular damage. In addition, Glutathione controls white blood cells and thus strengthens the immune system.
The most important property of Glutathione is its antioxidant effect.
Glutathione protects nerve cells and the brain, and also prevents lipid peroxidation in the body. It is interesting to know that oxidative stress due to cellular Glutathione deficiency is one of the main triggers of premature cell aging.
But the effect of Glutathione is not limited to delaying the aging process. It also reactivates other essential antioxidants, such as alpha-lipoic acid and vitamins C and E.
GSH is therefore considered in specialist circles as the « king of antioxidants ». But the action of Glutathione goes a step further. L-glutathione also plays an essential role in the detoxification and purification of the body.
Which foods contain Glutathione?
While your body can produce Glutathione on its own, it also needs this substance from food. Therefore, there are foods that can stimulate the production of Glutathione. These are mainly vegetables with a high sulphur content, such as broccoli, kale, cauliflower, red and white cabbage, onions, garlic, Brussels sprouts, etc.
