Liposomal glutathione is the body’s own important antioxidant that helps our bodies detoxify and prevent the negative effects of free radicals on the health and function of our cells. Thus, it simply contributes to keeping our body fit for the long term. Despite the stresses of the modern world, which cannot be completely prevented.
The liposomal form of the dietary supplement ensures the maximum possible absorption and utilization of this active substance.
Glutathione is one of the body’s most powerful, inherent antioxidants that can mitigate cellular disruption caused by free radicals. This simple molecule – a tripeptide – is composed of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. It is commonly synthesized by cells of animals, plants and bacteria. It is therefore also found in very basic foods – vegetables, fruit and meat.
Glutathione is an antioxidant substance that can detoxify cells and rid them of harmful substances. It helps to keep enzymes active and strengthens the body’s defences.
However, the production of glutathione in the human body decreases due to aging and the presence of a number of diseases, as well as due to an unhealthy lifestyle and unhealthy diet. The body then becomes more vulnerable to oxidative stress.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress is a phenomenon where there is an imbalance in the body between substances called antioxidants and free radicals. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules with an odd number of electrons that are most often produced as by-products of metabolism.
When this imbalance occurs, our body is unable to break down these free radicals quickly. This can lead to cell damage and even DNA damage. The result can be premature ageing of the body, including the development of a number of related diseases.
Antioxidants can reduce the risk of oxidative stress by neutralising free radicals. Therefore, these are substances absolutely essential for our health.
Why take liposomal glutathione?
You may be asking why you should get the liposomal form of glutathione in a special dietary supplement.
Most common vitamin and mineral supplements in powder or tablet form are not sufficiently absorbed by our bodies. While still in transit, the supplements are broken down in the digestive tract by digestive enzymes and gastric juices. Thus, only a small percentage of the active substance actually reaches its destination.
The liposomal form of glutathione revolutionizes absorption!
Why? The liposomal packaging eliminates this process and protects the active ingredient. Liposomes are molecules whose outer shell is made up of healthy fats (natural phospholipids) that encapsulate the contained functional substances. During absorption from the intestine, this fatty coating provides a protective cover for the active substance. The liposomal vesicle is naturally absorbed through the wall of the intestine into the bloodstream and with it the intact glutathione molecule hidden inside, which is then easily absorbed from the blood directly into the cells. Common glutathione supplementation unfortunately has a recovery rate of only 3-5% according to available sources.
Advantages of the liposomal form
- Better transport of the active substance to its destination – through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream and from there easy absorption directly into the cells
- Perfect bioavailability – availability of dietary supplements for the body
- Liposomal layer protects the active ingredient against damage in the digestive tract
- No aftertaste, long shelf life and purity (no additives) – all thanks to the bulk form.
