A powerful antioxidant you have never heard of is working hard to keep every cell in your body safe from free radical damage and oxidation stress. that's a good thing because oxidative stress has been associated with more than 74 major diseases and disorders.
This major cell protector and master antioxidant is glutathione. It is produced naturally in our cells if the required building blocks are available. Among its many functions, it strengthens the immune system, detoxifies the body, fights intracellular inflammation, and neutralizes numerous types of free radicals.
But...production of glutathione slows as we age, and much that we encounter in modern life-environment pollutants, cigarette smoke, diet, exercise, stress-taxes our glutathione defenses. We need to help the body produce more glutathione.
