Glutathione in McKinney, TX
Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant. It’s produced primarily in the liver from the protein building blocks known as cysteine, glutamine and glycine. Glutathione is present in every cell of the body. Its antioxidant actions help cells to stay healthy by preventing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress occurs during certain cell processes that involve oxygen. It produces harmful compounds known as free radicals, which are associated with diseases like diabetes and cancer. Glutathione neutralizes free radicals and also helps to augment the actions of other antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E. Glutathione levels tend to decline as people age. Levels of this critical antioxidant can also be reduced by poor diet, stress and toxins.
Glutathione works amazingly well for skin lightening. It can be used solely for the purpose of skin lightening or it can be used for anti-oxidant protection. Celebrities are prolific users of Glutathione, especially the likes of Rhianna, etc, who we have seen adopt a much lighter complexion over the years.
Glutathione is very commonly used across Asia, China, Japan, to get that “the pink-ish glow” as they call it. When using Glutathione, your body begins blocking tyrosinase activity meaning the body begins producing lighter pigment as a result of blocking eumelanin production (what gives the skin the darker complexion).
