Name: Glutathione Synonyms: 5-L-Glutamyl-L-cysteinylglycine; gamma-L-Glutamyl-L-cysteinylglycine; GSH Molecular Structure: Molecular Formula: C10H17N3O6S Molecular Weight: 307.32 CAS Number: 70-18-8 EINECS: 200-725-4 By serving as a critical nucleophilic scavenger, glutathione blocks free radical damage to all types of tissues. Glutathione is the most abundant intracellular thiol (sulfur containing compound) and low molecular weight tripeptide founded living cells. Every cell in the bodys first line of defense is the substance, Glutathione. It plays a crucial role in function and multiplication of lymphocytes to combat organisms like bacteria, viruses and parasites. Without proper levels of Glutathione, researchers found that our cells literally commit suicide, by undergoing a process known as programmed cell death. Unfortunately, as we get older our Glutathione levels decline. Glutathione (GSH) is concentrated in the liver, where it functions as a key detoxifying agent. It is the major naturally occurring antioxidant in the cell. Other lesser antioxidants like vitamin C and E depend on glutathione for their function.
