S-Acetyl L-Glutathione 60 tabs
Preclinical research suggests S-Acetyl-L-Glutathione is more stable in the blood and increases glutathione levels within cells better than non-acetylated glutathione
As an antioxidant, glutathione directly helps quench several reactive oxygen species (free radicals). The body’s benefits from maintaining a normal level of glutathione include support for liver function, pulmonary function, immune function, bowel health, carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular health, cognitive health, and eye health.
S-Acetyl Glutathione (S-A-GSH) is a unique form of glutathione, one of the most powerful antioxidants naturally produced in the body. It has an acetyl group (COCH3) attached to the sulfur atom of cysteine in the glutathione molecule. S-A-GSH is well-suited for oral ingestion, because this acetyl group protects glutathione from breaking down in the gastrointestinal tract. Once absorbed and inside the cells it is removed, thus leaving the glutathione molecule intact. S-A-GSH helps to support immune function and to optimize glutathione-dependent hepatic detoxification pathways.

The benefits of glutathione, NAC and Vitamin C
- Supports the immune system
The body’s immune cells require high amounts of glutathione to function optimally. Supplementation results in higher blood levels of glutathione, and greater natural killer cell activity. Natural killer cells play an important role in neutralizing infections.
- Helps reduce oxidative stress
Oxidative stress occurs when an imbalance exists between free radicals and antioxidants in the body, and can lead to a variety of health problems.
- Regenerates antioxidants
Glutathione helps regenerate antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Conversely, having low levels of antioxidants may result in oxidative stress and glutathione depletion. A 2015 study showed that compared to individuals with adequate vitamin C intake, those with a low intake of vitamin C had depleted levels of glutathione and high levels of oxidative stress. This research suggests that vitamin C and glutathione have a synergistic relationship—meaning that glutathione restores vitamin C and vitamin C helps maintain glutathione.
- Removes toxins
Glutathione bind mercury in the body, and helps carry this toxic metal to the urine for elimination. The body also normally creates its own “internal toxins,” which glutathione helps remove.
- May provide brain-supportive properties
Research suggests that glutathione regulates a vital neurotransmitter called glutamate which is responsible for communication in the brain between nerve cells. Studies have shown that the glutathione precursor NAC helps support healthy brain-glutamate levels.
- Supports respiratory health
The lungs need particularly high amounts of glutathione because they are subjected to high amounts of oxidative stress.
Maintaining your glutathione levels through supplementation of glutathione, NAC and Vitamin C optimizes antioxidant levels, boosts the immune system, and supports respiratory, brain and liver health.
