Liposomal Glutathione: Antioxidant formula with superior absorption and delivery.
Liposomal Glutathione provides 100 mg of reduced glutathione in each 1 mL serving (approximately 2 pumps). This product is formulated using liposomal technology, which results in superior delivery, absorption and bioavailability. Liposomal delivery bypasses proteolytic degradation in the GI tract and is uniquely effective for reaching and interacting with target tissues. Thus, this technology helps to overcome the absorption challenges typically faced with oral glutathione supplementation.
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants produced by the body. It helps protect cells against oxidative stress (free radical damage) from dietary and environmental free radicals as well as those resulting from normal metabolic processes.* Glutathione protects vulnerable DNA from damage, while also serving as a key factor in proper detoxification.* Liposomal Glutathione is offered in a lemon-peppermint flavored formulation.

What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a crucial molecule synthesized inside every cell in the human body. It is composed of three amino acids (glutamine, cysteine and glycine), and is found in the highest levels in the liver, eyes, spleen, pancreas and kidneys. Glutathione “wears many hats.” It is a key factor in the liver’s natural detoxification function, helping to bind heavy metals, neutralize toxins and support healthy immune function. It is also the single most protective antioxidant produced by the body and is therefore the most important for protecting cells against oxidative stress from dietary and environmental free radicals as well as those resulting from normal metabolic processes.* Glutathione is critical for energy production and for proper functioning of the mitochondria, which are nicknamed the “powerhouses of the cell,” because they generate the majority of cellular energy. The body’s ability to make this all-important molecule declines with age—precisely when we need its protective properties the most.
What are Liposomes?
Liposomes are spheres made of phospholipids—the same primary building blocks of cell membranes. Owing to this structure, liposomes bond easily with cell membranes to deliver their nutrient cargo (in this case, glutathione). Liposomes are extremely tiny particles, which allows for fast absorption, starting in the mouth. Why Liposomal Glutathione? Oral glutathione supplements typically present challenges with regard to absorption and ability to sufficiently increase the body’s glutathione levels. Because it is made of amino acids, glutathione administered orally is subject to degradation in the GI tract. (Stomach acid could potentially render it inactive by denaturing it, the way it does naturally during the digestion of proteins.) Glutathione delivered via liposomes bypasses degradation in the GI tract and is absorbed much more effectively and efficiently by the body.
