As to sport, many studies have been done showing the effectiveness of N-Acetylcysteine in the oxidative damage caused by intense physical exercise.
Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant produced by our body. It is a tripeptide consisting of cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid. This particular chemical composition gives glutathione a high capacity of protecting the body from the action of free radicals. Glutathione is part of a group of enzymes with antioxidant action, called glutathione peroxidase that, in the presence of Selenium, perform an important antiradical action, so much so that they neutralize the radicals of hydrogen peroxide.
Not to be forgotten is the capacity of glutathione to eliminate from the body heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and aluminium. Thanks to its ability to chelate and bind with them, it transports them and eliminates them from the body.
A particularly interesting action is carried out at hepatic level, where it protects the cells of the liver from toxic molecules of both endogenous and exogenous nature. Glutathione binds to these molecules, eliminating them mainly via the bile or after further metabolizations.
Apart from antioxidant and detoxifying functions, glutathione can stimulate the immune system and protect cells.
Because of its properties, glutathione is useful in case of diabetes, arterioscleroses, respiratory pathologies, male infertility, heavy metal poisoning, to preserve the integrity of the lens and against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
To complete the synergy among the components used in this product, there are vitamins E and C. Vitamin C also contributes to the regeneration of vitamin E.
Finally, we can use the benefits of riboflavin and niacin, vitamin B2 and vitamin B3 respectively. Both are essential components of coenzymes (FMN, FAD, NAD, NADP) that participate in numerous metabolic pathways and in cellular breathing. Vitamin E in particular helps in liberalising energy and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and proteins for the health of the skin and the functioning of the nervous system.
