Healthy glutathione recycling in the body
In the body, glutathione is found in two forms: reduced and oxidized. It is the reduced form that acts as an important antioxidant. The body must continually regenerate reduced glutathione from the oxidized form. This recycling of glutathione uses specialized enzymes which require specific vitamins and minerals as cofactors. Optimal Glutathione Plus includes these cofactor nutrients to support glutathione recycling and healthy glutathione levels.*
The targeted ingredients found in Optimal Glutathione Plus are designed to provide the following benefits and actions:*
S-Acetyl-L-Glutathione is an acetylated form of glutathione, thought to be more bioavailable to the body compared to non-acetylated forms. This stable, lipid-like form of glutathione converts to reduced glutathione and has been shown to effectively increase reduced glutathione levels in the body.
Riboflavin helps the body to recycle glutathione by serving as a cofactor for the enzyme glutathione reductase.
Selenium helps the body to recycle glutathione by serving as a cofactor for the enzyme glutathione peroxidase.
Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral involved in sulfate-sulfite conversion, a process that can affect glutathione levels if not functioning efficiently.
PQQ may help support cellular energy production as well as the body’s defenses against oxidative damage. Along with molybdenum, PQQ helps to protect glutathione and to support metabolism of unwanted reactive oxygen species.
Optimal Glutathione Plus capsules provide the same great formula as our Optimal Liposomal Glutathione Plus, with the following differences:
Acid-resistant capsules instead of a liquid liposomal format
Contains half the dose of riboflavin, selenium, and molybdenum
One serving (one capsule) provides 100 mg of S-acetyl-L-glutathione, compared to 350 mg of L-glutathione found in one serving (5 mL) of the liquid liposomal form. This smaller dose allows for easier dosage customization and optimal pulsing of this supplement, as needed.
