Glutathione (GSH), a tripeptide composed of three amino acids glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, with a molecular weight of 307.32, exists in almost every cell of the body.

The liver is the main place for the synthesis of glutathione in the body. Under normal conditions, the liver of healthy adults synthesizes 8 to 10 grams of glutathione per day.

The main role of glutathione in the human body:


As an important antioxidant in the body, glutathione can remove free radicals in the body. It can protect the thiol groups in many molecules such as proteins and enzymes from being oxidized by harmful substances, thereby ensuring the normal physiological functions of molecules such as proteins and enzymes.

The content of glutathione in human erythrocytes is very high, which is about 1000 times the plasma level in erythrocytes. Glutathione plays the role of anti-toxic free radicals, which are inevitable by-products when red blood cells process oxygen. It is important to prevent hemolysis.

It can protect the mucosal epithelium of the gastrointestinal tract from damage to the intestinal mucosa due to inflammation, local ischemia, and oxidative substances.


Glutathione has an integrated detoxification effect on heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and arsenic.

3.Whitening effect

Glutathione can directly inhibit the activity of tyrosinase, and at the same time, it can sweep away a large number of oxidative free radicals, prevent free radicals from activating tyrosinase, and can also be hydrolyzed into cysteine, which interferes with the synthesis of melanin. That is to say, in the process of whitening, it has dual functions of "antioxidation" + "inhibition".

4.Improve micro-inflammation

Glutathione is helpful for inhibiting inflammatory factors and improving micro-inflammatory state.
