REDUCED L-GLUTATHIONE (150 MG)
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifying compound consisting of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine.† Produced in the liver, glutathione assists with detoxifying xenobiotics and heavy metals, neutralizes hydrogen peroxide, maintains the integrity of blood cells, and helps transport amino acids across cell membranes.† It aids in the breakdown of oxidized fats and is necessary for carbohydrate metabolism.† Glutathione is also involved in metabolizing insulin and regulating blood glucose levels.† These hypoallergenic formulations have been specifically designed using the active, reduced form of glutathione for maximum benefit.

Reduced L-Glutathione is a natural compound made in the body from glutamic acid and the amino acids L-cysteine and L-glycine. As the body’s major cellular antioxidant, L-glutathione is crucial for scavenging free radicals.† It is also required for the body’s natural immune response and is important in the cellular detoxification of xenobiotics like smoke, heavy metals, and drug metabolites.† Klaire Labs™ Reduced L-Glutathione also contains magnesium, an essential mineral that plays a role in maintaining antioxidant status.†
L-Glutathione exists in the body in 2 forms that recycle back and forth, a reduced (or "active") form and an oxidized form. Keeping these forms in balance is extremely important for maintaining health. Our bodies are constantly producing free radicals (uncharged, highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons). The reduced form of L-glutathione is an antioxidant that protects cells and tissues by scavenging free radicals.† In this process, reduced L-glutathione (also known as GSH) is transformed into its oxidized form (GSSG). L-Glutathione can be depleted under heavy bouts of free radical stress or even simply due to aging, as L-glutathione levels naturally decrease over time.
L-Glutathione plays a crucial role in the body’s detoxification process that occurs inside cells, particularly within cells of the liver, kidney, intestines, and lungs. As part of the cellular detoxifying process, L-glutathione binds to toxins and helps remove them from the body.† A healthy balance of reduced and oxidized forms of L-glutathione supports the body’s ability to detoxify chemicals such as those found in environmental pollutants, smoke and exhaust, heavy metals, and metabolites from various types of drugs.†
