Glutathione (L-gamma-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine) is a peptide molecule synthesized in the body from the three amino acids L-glutamic acid, L-cysteine and glycine. Glutathione is one of the body’s most important and powerful antioxidants,157 helping to detoxify xenobiotics.158-161 A major function of vitamin C is to keep glutathione in its reduced form so that it can continue to provide free radical-quenching effects.162-165
|Dosage and Use|
When taking N-acetyl cysteine it is recommended that two to three times as much vitamin C be taken at the same time. Failure to do so may result in more harm than good from taking this product because of the prolonged presence of the oxidized L-cysteine.
