Glutathione is a potent antioxidant vital to almost all body functions, such as improving immune function and helping fight disease. It also lightens and brightens the skin by erasing hyper-pigmentation and inhibiting cell melanin production, reducing inflammation.
An essential molecule required for detoxification, glutathione assists the body in removing harmful, destructive oxygen-containing molecules or, in modern biochemistry, reactive O2 species.
Reactive O2 species molecules include peroxide (H2O2) and superoxide anions (O2 with unpaired electron) and are very toxic to the cell. Toxicity can be explained by a molecule's tendency to bind or destroy important biomolecules.
The body has a natural system to remove reactive O2 species. Systems metabolize and scavenge for reactive oxygen species in a controlled and precise fashion.
