Thorne Research Glutathione-SR a sustained release form of glutathione that provides antioxidant support for the liver, brain, heart, lungs, eyes, and helps the body respond to physical activity. As an antioxidant, glutathione directly quenches several reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Glutathione-SR is a breakthrough in glutathione supplementation because its sustained-release formula protects it from stomach acid and digestive enzymes, allowing for a slower release and a more steady level in the bloodstream of this essential nutrient. Glutathione is the most abundant anti-oxidant. Since training and competition create more oxidative stress and damage, athletes have a higher need for antioxidants. Exercise longer than 60-90 minutes significantly decreases glutathione levels in the blood, so supplementing is beneficial for endurance and ultra endurance events. An athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agents, and masking agents. Glutathione is one of the best-kept nutrition secrets: it's an essential antioxidant that helps regulate the immune system while working together with various enzymes to remove toxins from your body. Although glutathione is naturally produced by the liver, that quantity is usually too small to have a significant impact and is easily depleted. An overload of toxins, artificial chemicals, and free radicals can also reduce the amount of glutathione your body produces. A deficiency in glutathione may negatively affect your cardiovascular health and cognitive functioning. Fatigue is a condition that many people, especially adult women suffer from today; stress, age, illness, and genetics are often to blame. The liver is the body's largest reservoir for glutathione. A potent endogenous antioxidant, glutathione is essential for the liver's phase I and phase II detoxification. However, negative lifestyle issues and adverse conditions that affect liver health can result in a decreased amount of glutathione in the liver.
