Benefits of Glutathione

Glutathione offers a wide spectrum of health benefits, including:

1. Protection from Oxidative Damage

Low levels of glutathione are associated with oxidative damage, which, in turn, results in various serious health conditions, such as atherosclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases, or cancer.

Therefore, it is essential to maintain normal glutathione levels, as it has a prophylactic effect against oxidative stress.[3]

2. Inflammation Control

According to several studies, glutathione plays a key role in the modulation of inflammation by regulating the immune response of the body.[4]

3. Prevention from Age-related Health Issues

The researchers found that the increased cysteine intake, even through diet, promotes the production of glutathione, which leads, in turn, to reduced risk of age-related health problems, since it preserves the health of musculoskeletal and vascular systems, as well as brain function.[5]

4. Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease Management

It is proven that oxidative damage and low levels of glutathione contribute to the development of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

On the contrary, high levels of this antioxidant are linked to a delay of the progression to these neurodegenerative diseases.[6], [7]

5. Prevention and Management of Infections

According to a recent review, glutathione has significant both protective and therapeutic effects against infections, as it has the ability to regulate the immune system.

It is also suggested that glutathione supplementation may help to prevent certain infections, like HIV and tuberculosis, especially in people that are more susceptible to such diseases.[8]

6. Prevention and Management of Autism

Research has shown that glutathione deficiency is associated with a higher risk of autism, as the regulation of the antioxidant is affected in this neurodevelopmental disorder.[9]

However, maintaining the normal levels of glutathione helps to prevent or even reverse abnormalities that are related to autism.[10]

7. Anti-aging Effect

Glutathione has various beneficial effects on skin properties and is an effective anti-aging agent, at least in middle-aged women, by preventing lines and wrinkles and improving skin elasticity.[11]

8. Protection from Cardiovascular Diseases

Studies show that the deficit of glutathione affects the function of the heart and may cause abnormalities to the structure of the cardiovascular system.

It is also evident that an increase in the glutathione levels minimizes the risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases, since it acts against oxidative damage.
