Glutathione, the main ingredient in this supplement, is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifying amino acid compound. Naturally produced in the liver, glutathione assists with detoxifying environmental pollutants such as dioxin and PCBs. This is particularly relevant to women with endo since the Association’s 1992 discovery that dioxin is strongly associated with the development of endo.
Glutathione assists in detoxifying heavy metals, neutralizes hydrogen peroxide, maintains the integrity of blood cells, and helps transport amino acids across cell membranes. It is also involved in metabolizing insulin and regulating blood glucose levels. Every system in the body can be affected by the state of the glutathione system, especially the immune system, the nervous system, the gastrointestinal system and the lungs. The EA formulation uses the reduced—or active form of glutathione for maximum benefit.
