Glutathione (GSH) is a peptide consisting of three key amino acids that plays several vital roles in the body. Longevity researchers believe that it is so pivotal to our health that the level of GSH in our cells is becoming a predictor of how long we will live! Every cell in our bodies produce it. It’s the most important antioxidant as it resides within the cell. Crucial role in immune function. Promotes T-cell function. Protects against environmental toxins. Discourages cancer progression.
