Glutathione

Glutathione is often referred to as ‘the mother of all antioxidants’, but many supplements are poorly absorbed by the body and are thus of little value. Handily, Planet Source have engineered a solution in the form of S-Acetyl Glutathione – a major advance in the realm of glutathione supplementation.

What is Glutathione? 

A tripeptide molecule made inside our cells from three amino acids – L- glutamine, L-cysteine and L-glycine – glutathione is the body’s most prolific antioxidant and detoxifying agent. Not only is it crucial for proper mitochondrial function and energy production, but it helps protect us from oxidative stress, battling free radicals and reactivating other powerful antioxidants. Some even believe it helps slow the ageing process.

Although our bodies produce glutathione naturally, our reserves can become depleted owing to several factors including poor diet, chronic stress, medication and a high toxin load. Very low levels of glutathione have been recorded in individuals suffering from chronic illnesses and infections. This is due to the body’s tissues essentially ‘using up’ their supply of glutathione, although they also directly inhibit the production of more glutathione by displacing magnesium from the enzyme that creates glutathione. 

Top Up Your Glutathione Levels

Boosting your glutathione levels would seem like a logical course of action, but as mentioned, many glutathione supplements provide next to no benefit; only small amounts of glutathione are able to enter the bloodstream, with most lost in the digestive tract. 

Some people have tried to work around this by using precursors to glutathione (i.e. N-acetyl-cysteine, called NAC for short) to provide the body with the most crucial amino acid needed to make glutathione. The only problem is, many are unable to synthesise glutathione well due to heavy metal toxicity and/or magnesium deficiencies. Administering glutathione intravenously is an option, although it’s certainly not cheap!

A Greater Glutathione 

S-Acetyl Glutathione is bioavailable glutathione, and you can now take it orally without having to endure the nasty taste/smell of the pre-cursor NAC – or the exorbitant expense of I.V. glutathione. S-Acetyl-Glutathione is the first orally stable form of glutathione that is absorbed intact and increases intracellular glutathione levels. The acetyl group is attached to the sulphur atom of cysteine in the glutathione molecule. This connection protects it from oxidation in the digestive tract and reduces the unpleasant smell and taste of the sulphur atom. It’s worth repeating: there is NO foul gas when you take this form of S-Acetyl Glutathione!

S-Acetyl Glutathione is a lipid-like molecule that is taken up intact by chylomicrons in the digestive tract. Once S-Acetyl Glutathione reaches the bloodstream, the acetyl group protects it from breakdown by peptidases. 

Studies show that S-Acetyl Glutathione crosses the cell membrane more easily than glutathione itself. Once inside the cell, the acetyl group on S-Acetyl Glutathione is removed and the glutathione molecule is free inside the cell, which is exactly where it is needed.

Recommended Serving 

S-Acetyl Glutathione is supplied in packs of 30 acid-resistant vegetarian capsules. The recommending serving is 2 capsules per day.
