An Important Antioxidant

Whey protein improves the immune system by boosting Glutathione (GSH) production in our tissues. Low GSH levels are seen in many deseases such as bacterial, viral and fungal and fungal infections, diabetes, cancers and etc. Did you know? GSH must be synthesized in our body using three types of amino acids (proteins): Cysteine + Glutamine + Glycine => Glutathione (GSH)

Whey proteins improve Immune system by boosting Glutathione (GSH) production in our tissues. Glutathione protects cells against free radical damage caused by pollution, toxins, exercise and UV exposure.


GSH is the body's master antioxidant. Our body depends on GSH for the removal of toxins since GSH is at the heart of all immune functions. Other antioxidants in our body depend on GSH to function properly.


GSH detoxifies a large number of pollutants by binding to carcinogens, heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and radiation by forming a soluble compound with the toxin that can then be excreted through the urine or bile.


Healthy growth and activity of immune cells depends on the availability of GSH. The protective activity of GSH is two-fold - it enhances the activity of immune cells and also functions as an antioxidant within them.

GSH enables the mitochondria of a cell to remain fully charged, enhancing muscle strength and endurance. Clinical trials have shown that lowering GSH in the mitochondria results in cell death.


GSH performs a vital role in repairing the damaged DNA, keeps the repair of our cells at a maximum and reduces the number of cell mutations that would occur otherwise.


GSH is at the heart of all immune functions and low GSH levels are seen in many diseases such as AIDS, advanced diabetes, and cancers. Raising and maintaining GSH levels can help minimize the risk of diseases.
