Our Body's Master Antioxidant and Best Kept Secret
Glutathione is the body's own natural antioxidant. Antioxidants are vitally important for the function of a healthy immune system; they neutralize the free radical activity in the body.
Glutathione GSH is depleted by oxidative stress, which usually occurs by illness, infection, trauma, medication or surgery.
'Antioxidants are well documented to play vital roles in health maintenance and disease prevention. GSH is our cell's own major antioxidant. Why not use what is natural?'
Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide composed of the amino acids Cysteine, Glutamine, and Glycine. These molecoles are found in a larger ratio in undenatured whey protein compared with any other proteins ingested by humans. Both Cysteine and Glutamine are principle players in the coordinated T-cell response of macrophages and lymphocytes.
Glutathione GSH is naturaly found in all the cells of mammals. It provides the principal intracellular defense against oxidative stresses. GSH levels decrease with an insufficient nutrient intake, undenatured protein specifically. Cysteine in the combined molecule of Glutamine and Cysteine (glutamylcysteine dipeptidesU) is the rate limiting step for GSH production. The natural conformation of the proteins is essential for producing intracellular Glutathione.Therefore the consumption of proteins that are low in Cysteine limit GSH production and availability.
True Undenatured Whey Protein Concentrate is the optimal nature prescribed precursor (required for the production) of Glutathione (GSH). It contains exceptionally high amounts of undenatured Cysteine and Glutamine, the amino acids required for intracellular GSH production. It naturally contains the full range of proteins that enhance immune function and the protein bound fats not available in whey protein isolates.
