Glutahione's benefits include:
- Glutathione is an important and potent antioxidant
Glutathione is a really potent antioxidant, which helps to scavenge for free radicals in the body and neutralise them before they can do damage, in the form of heart disease, cancer and premature ageing. Glutathione's antioxidant properties work to ensure that the DNA and RNA of cells is kept unchanged and healthy, preventing mutation to the DNA which is exactly how cancer starts. Glutathione also reduces oxidation that can add to complications associated with bypass surgery, through its antioxidant properties. Glutathione prevents damage to body tissues by preventing oxidative stress. Glutathione is one of the most important antioxidants in the body.
- Glutathione has important anti-viral properties
Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties, which makes it one of the most important nutrients that can stop viruses from replicating and causes disease and infection in the body. Glutathione's antioxidant effects also contribute to this. Studies have shown that it can prevent the herpes 1 type virus (the one which causes cold sores) and thus prevent a cold sore outbreak.

- Glutathione helps the liver in its detoxification process
Glutathione helps the liver to detoxify the toxins that pass through it, so that they can be safely eliminated from the body, through the urine or stools. Since glutathione is so vital for the liver, it is found in large concentrations in the liver, where it helps the liver perform its processes more effectively.
- Glutathione may help with sperm production
Several studies have shown that glutathione may help with healthy sperm production and in particular may increase production and motility of sperm in men who are infertile. In these studies glutathione seemed to reduce the number of unhealthy (and unusable) sperm, which is beneficial for all men, but especially so for infertile men, who have atypical (unhealthy) sperm.
