Glutathione is the most abundant intracellular antioxidant, not only providing protection against reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, but also playing a major role in multiple functions that maintain cellular homeostasis.1 Found in every cell, glutathione plays a role in immune function, gene expression, mitochondrial integrity, regulation of DNA and protein synthesis, and the detoxification of both endogenous and environmental toxins.2
While most intracellular glutathione is in a reduced state (GSH) with approximately 1% as an oxidized form (GSSG), this proportion can decrease in response to a variety of cellular stressors, including heavy metals, high glucose concentrations, poor nutrition, heat shock, reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, cigarette smoke, and other toxins including persistent organic pollutants.3,4 Indeed, it is the decline in GSH levels that has been associated with many chronic and age-related conditions, as well as the aging process itself.5,6
Supplementation with glutathione has clearly been shown to increase GSH levels in multiple sites in human clinical trials, including plasma, red blood cells, and lymphocytes.7 Additionally, improved forms of delivery such as liposomal glutathione and polymeric micelles (liquid micelle matrix) enhance bioavailability, provide resistance against intestinal degradation, and may also improve intracellular delivery of glutathione, bypassing potential enzymatic bottlenecks.8-10
