Description: Glutathione is a protein made up of the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. It is one of the most important antioxidants and plays a key role in detoxification. There is concern whether oral glutathione supplements actually are effectively absorbed and utilized in the body.

It is known that vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid, whey protein, and other nutrients increase the blood levels of ­ glutathione.
