Glutathione Plus capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contain 50 mg of glutathione in its active reduced form, and 440 mg of N-acetyl-l-cysteine. Glutathione is a tripeptide with antioxidant properties, and N- acetyl-l-cysteine is a biologically active precursor for the intracellular glutathione.
Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive oxygen species (e.g., peroxides) which are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure.
When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced which, in turn, can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues. The uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought to be a major contributing factor to many degenerative diseases.
Glutathione capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake and synthesis of glutathione.
