Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells from oxidative stress. Essential Pro is an advanced oral delivery system of reduced glutathione utilizing the power of the new BioGlute Complex. Essential Pro is designed to increase the systemic bioavailability of glutathione using phosphatidylcholine-enriched liposomes.
High quality glutathione enhances toxin removal. It is often referred to as the body's master antioxidant. Composed of three amino acids – cysteine, glycine, and glutamate – glutathione is a basic building block for human cell functions. Glutathione is also an essential component to the body's natural defense system. Viruses, bacteria, heavy metal toxicity, radiation, certain medications, and even the normal process of aging can all cause free-radical damage to healthy cells and deplete glutathione. As the generation of free radicals exceeds the body's ability to neutralize and eliminate them, oxidative stress occurs. A primary function of glutathione is to alleviate this oxidative stress. GSH and its metabolites also interface with energetics and neurotransmitter syntheses through several prominent metabolic pathways. GSH availability down-regulates the pro-inflammatory potential of leukotrienes and other eicosanoids. GSH is an extremely important cell protectant. It directly quenches reactive hydroxyl free radicals, other oxygen-centered free radicals, and radical centers on DNA and other biomolecules. GSH is a primary protectant of skin, lens, cornea, and retina against radiation damage and other biochemical foundations of P450 detoxification in the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestinal, epithelia, and other organs.
