Skin Whitening Treatment
Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the body and works around the clock to fend off nefarious characters. Glutathione, known as gamma glutamylcysteinylglycine or GSH is a tri-peptide or a small protein molecule formed inside the body from three amino acids – Cysteine, Glycine and (Gamma) Glutamic Acid.
In addition, some foods, particularly asparagus, spinach, avocado & squash are high in a plant version of glutathione that the body converts to replenish its supply.
What are the Biological Benefits of GSH?
GSH is a triple threat to toxins as it neutralises free radicals, enhances the immune system and detoxifies the liver, minimising the risk of chronic disease and promoting longevity.
How does it work as an Antioxidant?
Glutathione is a water soluble antioxidant, a detoxifier. Many medical experts and biological scientists claim that glutathione is the most important and effective endogenous antioxidant. It can act as a master healing agent.
As we age, the oxidative stress and the damages due to free radical increase to level where body can’t sustain the bad effects of them. So the accumulation of oxidative damages in the cells take place and it leads to aging, and its expressions in the body. The deterioration in physiological function associated with aging makes the body less immune and more susceptible to diseases and degeneration.
It acts to reconstitute the antioxidant vitamins C and E after they have been oxidised, and therefore plays a determinant role in their function.
What are the effects on the Immune System?
It has an important role in supporting body’s immune system.It can be called as the body’s first line of defence against oxidative stress and a number of xenobiotics (exogenous toxins such as benzenes, heavy metals & pesticides) which are constantly attacking our cells & enzymes. It directly acts on the power house of the cell, the mitochondria and protects it from all infections & mutations.
How does Detoxification of Liver happen?
Even though GSH is found throughout the body, it is more concentrated in the liver. Being the body’s primary organ for detoxification, the liver absorbs the food and liquids supplied to the body. But expelling a toxin isn’t easy. It mainly happens in two phases.
In phase one, liver enzymes should convert the toxins into a compound that can be flushed.
In phase two, glutathione is used to grab hold of the toxin and escort it out of the body via urine or bile. If there isn’t enough glutathione on hand, the toxins get blocked up & accumulated, leading to damages of the liver.
What is the role of GSH in Skin Care and Whitening?
Glutathione helps in skin whitening by reducing the activity of Tyrosinase that helps in melanin bio synthesis. As the reduced glutathione intervenes the bio synthetic pathway of melanin, it helps in lightening the skin colour.

What is Glutathione Detoxification and Anti Aging Therapy?
Under healthy conditions, and in a healthy environment, our bodies would be able to produce and use plenty of glutathione to meet our daily needs.
“Even if we lived in a pristine environment, our bodies would make free radicals,” says Alschuler. In every breath, in each burned calorie, on every muscle stretching, free radicals are released and make the body affected with toxins. On a long run of life, stress, fast food & stimulants decline GSH and make the body prematurely aged. The introduction of Glutathione into the body is needed to make life healthier, younger & energetic.
Don’t wait until you are sick and have to think about glutathione. High stress levels, certain medications, past infections and a poor diet can be a good indicator of GSH therapy.
