supplementation is proven to enhance body stores of glutathione
; and the study results show that glutathione
supplementation represents an effective intervention strategy to not only enhance body stores but also boost the body's immune function.
is one of the most important substances that I know of in keeping the brain healthy and functioning well.

S-transferase M1, M3, P1, and T1 genetic polymorphisms and susceptibility to breast cancer.
Purification and biochemical characterization of glutathione
S-transferases from three strains of Liposcelis bostrychophila Badonnel (Psocoptera: Liposcelididae): implication of insecticide resistance.
Both groups received infusions of stable isotopes to measure glutathione
synthesis in the fasted state.
In the antioxidant system, glutathione
-S-transferases (GSTs) are a class of detoxification (or antioxidant) enzymes that catalyse the conjugation of reduced glutathione
to electrophilic compounds, including endogenous or exogenous sources of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and environmental carcinogenic compounds (Hayes and Pulford, 1995).
The principal cellular non-enzymatic antioxidant system is the glutathione
system (Halliwell, 2001).
GSTs catalyze the nucleophilic addition of the thiol of reduced glutathione
to electrophilic centers in endogenous and exogenous compounds.
It is also a cofactor for glutathione
reductase, so it participates in the generation of glutathione
The problem with glutathione
supplements is that your body doesn't absorb them well when you take them orally.
Non-enzymatic antioxidants include ascorbate (ASC) and glutathione
(GSH) and enzymatic antioxidants are superoxide dismutase (SOD), different specific peroxidases, catalase (CAT) and enzymes of ascorbate-glutathione
cycle as reviewed by Ahmad et al.
Of these, glutathione
is the most ubiquitous antioxidant in the human body.
com)-- AnaSpec has introduced two new Glutathione
(GSH) related kits - the SensoLyte[R] Glutathione
Cellular Assay Kit and the SensoLyte[R] GST Activity Assay Kit to complement the colorimetric and fluorimetric SensoLyte[R] Total GSH assay kits.
