What does glutathione do?
Glutathione is an antioxidant made up of three main amino acids; glutamine, glycine and cysteine, and is produced naturally in your liver and found in every cell in your body. It helps to reduce oxidative stress and fight free radicals which can damage cells, aids in tissue building and repair, and supports the function of the immune system.
Which foods are rich in glutathione?
Many foods contain glutathione or sulphur, which can help to boost glutathione production in the body. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale and Brussels sprouts, eggs, nuts and lean proteins will all help glutathione production. Whey protein, milk thistle and flaxseed also contain compounds and amino acids which can be beneficial in generating glutathione.
