Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and detoxifying substance. But not many people are aware of its role, which is unfortunate as glutathione deficiency is known to hasten the ageing process and increase your risk of degenerative diseases like dementia, heart disease, arthritis, cancer, lung disease, Alzheimer’s and more.

Glutathione is one of the most powerful anti-oxidants produced by our body, and yet it hardly receives the attention it deserves from the medical community. It may be little known and may not have as many cheerleaders as other anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lycopene and even resveratrol found in red wine, but you can’t just deny the super role of Glutathione as a powerful detoxifier, immune booster and - of course - potent anti-oxidant.
The majority of us believe that taking Vitamin C will help us build a strong immune system. But if you smoke, you are likely to need more of this important vitamin to fight the harmful effects of smoking.
