Glutathione (CAS 70-18-8) is a including γ-amide bond and thiol tripeptide. It is mainly composed of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine.
It exists in every cell of the body to ensure the normal functioning of the body’s immune system.
Glutathione has a broad-spectrum detoxification effect, and can be used not only as a medicine, but also as a base of functional foods, and is widely used in functional foods such as anti-aging, enhancing immunity, and anti-tumor.
Glutathione Typical function
As an antioxidant, glutathione can resist aging, freckle, wrinkles, whitening skin, etc.
Antioxidant is resistant to free radicals. Because free radicals break down cells and tissues, affecting metabolic functions, and causing various health problems. Therefore, it is possible to eliminate excessive oxidative radicals, which can be prevented for many free radical-induced and aging-related diseases. For example, common cancers, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, cataracts, cardiovascular diseases, senile dementia, arthritis, etc., are all thought to be related to free radicals.
The whitening function of glutathione. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and the reduced glutathione contained in the skin is not enough to protect against ultraviolet radiation, so supplemental reducing glutathione can detoxify and block melanin. The principle is that glutathione can correct the imbalance of acetylcholine and cholinesterase. It can help the skin to resist allergies, prevent skin aging and pigmentation, and reduce the formation of melanin. Thereby improving the skin’s ability to resist oxidation, giving the skin a luster and achieving a whitening effect.
Because glutathione is not directly absorbed by the body, glutathione can be absorbed by ABD active factor as a precursor.
Detoxification function of glutathione. As a particularly active antioxidant, glutathione can be actively combined with heavy metals and other toxic substances in the human body and then excreted with urine. For example, glutathione has a good effect in protecting the liver because the tripeptide-containing compound containing sulfhydryl (SH) enhances the activity of the redox system in the human body, thereby promoting hepatocyte regeneration and excreting toxins in the body.
1, added to the surface products, can play a reducing role. Not only shortens the time to make bread to one-half or one-third of the original, the labor conditions are greatly improved, and it strengthens the food nutrition and other functions.
2, add it to yogurt and infant food, equivalent to vitamin C, can play a role as a stabilizer.
3. Mix it into the fish cake to prevent the color from deepening.
4, added to meat products and cheese and other foods, with enhanced flavor effect.
Combination of glutathione and vitamin C
Vitamin C is also an important antioxidant in the body. Since vitamin C can reversibly hydrogenate or dehydrogenate, vitamin C plays an important role in many redox reactions in the body. For example, the active group of many enzymes is thiol (-SH), which maintains -SH in a reduced state while maintaining enzyme activity. Vitamin C can convert oxidized glutathione to reduced glutathione (GSH), which reduces the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) produced by the body’s metabolism. Vitamin C protects vitamins A, E and many B vitamins from oxidation. Therefore, when glutathione is used, it can be used in combination with vitamin C to improve its efficacy.
