Whitening & Antioxidation & Melanin production inhibition
According to Professor Lester Packer, a leading researcher in antioxidant research in United States, the concept of ‘antioxidant network’ suggests that various antioxidant components are converted into toxins and attack cells after the task of protecting cells from active oxygen is over. At this time, other antioxidants interact and engage organically so that the antioxidants do not turn into toxins. This is called an ‘antioxidant network’.
The antioxidant function of glutathione maintains a constant antioxidant environment called ‘thiol group’, and uses this thiol group to reduce and eliminate active oxygen.
Skin improvement effect
1. Skin beauty effect
It inhibits melanin in melanocytes and the formation of freckle and blemish. Glutathione is also known as a powerful antioxidant that the human body can make. It has a stronger antioxidant power than vitamins and helps to make clear and transparent skin.
2. Prevention of skin aging
Glutathione is widely distributed in the liver and skin where the active oxygen is mainly produced. Ultraviolet rays, which have a bad effect on the skin, are also a major cause of active oxygen. When the concentration of glutathione increases, melanin pigment is removed, the skin becomes clear, and skin aging is improved such as prevention of wrinkles.
Improvement in physical function
Physical metabolic control
Glutathione helps improve homeostasis and metabolic functions through reactions such as bonding and reducing with other components.
Liver function improvement, detoxification
Glutathione is involved in improving liver function and producing detoxification enzymes. Lower blood glutathione levels can cause liver damage or liver disease. Due to this characteristic of glutathione, it is used as a special medicine for improving liver function.
Glutathione is present in large amounts in the lens of the eye and in the cornea, and when it is deficient, it causes corneal diseases such as cataracts. The normal level of glutathione blocks cataracts or slows down progress.
Prevention of dementia
Parkinson’s disease patients have lower levels of glutathione in the brain than in the general population. The glutathione components remove oxidative stress associated with damage to brain tissue, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
