Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants in your body. It is present in every one of your cells. It’s different from other antioxidants in that it is actually inside your cells. It can maximize the activity of all the other antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, CoQ10, and alpha lipoic acid. Glutathione also helps detoxify the body by binding to harmful heavy metals.*
Quality whey like ēWhey, provides all the key amino acids for glutathione production (cysteine, glycine and glutamate) and contains a unique cysteine residue (glutamylcysteine) that is highly bioactive in its affinity for converting to glutathione.
Glutamylcysteine is a bonded cysteine molecule (cysteine plus glutamate) that naturally occurs in Bovine Serum Albumin – a fragile immune component of whey. This unique cysteine is exclusive to whey and rarely appears in other protein foods – which makes whey protein the best glutathione-promoting food source.*
Whey provides critical co-factors, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin and alpha Lactalbumin, which together help create the right metabolic environment for high glutathione activity.*
