What is Gluathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is an important antioxidant
in plants, animals, fungi, and some bacteria and archaea, preventing damage to
important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free
radicals and peroxides. Every nucleated cell needs and uses glutathione. It is a simple molecule that is produced naturally all
the time in your body. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of
protein or amino acids -- cysteine, glycine and glutamine. It also
contains sulfur (SH) chemical groups. Sulfur is a sticky molecule that attracts
free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy
metals. Mercury depletes glutathione and is the end
product of the methionine cycle in the methylation
cycles. Normally glutathione is recycled in the body -- except when the toxic
load becomes too great.
Glutathione protects cells against the oxidative stress that
damages cell membrane proteins. Without adequate glutathione, mitochondrial
oxygen metabolism produces large numbers of free radicals, which causes cells to
perform poorly or die. A number of studies have shown that oxidative stress
increases with aging, and leads to degenerative diseases: heart disease, memory
problems, cancer, diabetes,
Glutathione is considered the most
important antioxidant because it is the only one capable of working with
enzymes. One enzyme, glutathione peroxidase (GPx), works with glutathione to
prevent membranes from becoming oxidized. Glutathione also helps activate the
better-known antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E.
How Does Glutathione Work? Glutathione binds metals and other toxins and
transforms them into compounds that can be excreted in bile or urine. Once
bound, these toxins become water-soluble and can be transported out of cells.
The binding of toxins to
glutathione creates a demand on the body to make new glutathione. Deficiency
results when a tissue or system cannot keep pace with the demand.
Low serum levels correlate with the progression of coronary artery disease. This
was observed not only in individuals with coronary artery obstructions that
required intervention (Hong 2005), but also in people who were relatively young
and apparently healthy
The liver harbors the body's
largest stores of glutathione and play a critical important plays a role in
detoxifying environmental pollutants, radiation, drugs, carcinogenic chemicals
and heavy metals.
Glutathione s-transferases (GST)
are a group of enzymes that work in concert with glutathione. They are
critical for removal of many toxins. The loss of GST function will contribute to
both acute and chronic illnesses. People dealing with chronic illness have
glutathione deficiency and this is true for people of all ages.
Autism spectrum disorders
A clinical study in children with autism showed that oral supplementation
with liposomal glutathione can raise glutathione levels in plasma after oral
ingestion (Kern 2011). In the children using this preparation, plasma levels
of reduced glutathione rose from low to the low end of normal after two

related illness caused by oxidative stress:
Glutathione in the Pathophysiology of Mycotoxin-Related Illness
Frederick T. Guilford and
Janette Hope Abstract:
Evidence for the role of oxidative stress in the
pathophysiology of mycotoxin-related illness is increasing. The glutathione
antioxidant and detoxification systems play a major role in the antioxidant
function of cells. Exposure to mycotoxins in humans requires the production
of glutathione on an “as needed” basis. Research suggests that mycotoxins
can decrease the formation of glutathione due to decreased gene expression
of the enzymes needed to form glutathione. Mycotoxin-related compromise
of glutathione production can result in an excess of oxidative stress
that leads to tissue damage and systemic illness. The review discusses the
mechanisms by which mycotoxin-related deficiency of glutathione may lead to
both acute and chronic illnesses.
