Life Extension Glutathione, Cysteine and Vitamin C is a Combination of the Most Powerful Antioxidants Available
L-cysteine is an amino acid which is considered conditionally essential. L-cysteine is one of only three sulfur-containing amino acids, the others being taurine (which can be produced from L-cysteine) and L-methionine (L-cysteine can be produced in your body through a multi-step process). Cysteine plays a vital role in your body's sulfation cycle. It acts as a sulfur donor in phase II detoxification and as a methyl donor in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Cysteine can also aid in the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is your body’s most important intracellular antioxidant and an essential detoxifier.
Glutathione, or gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine, is a peptide (short-protein) molecule which is synthesized in your body from the three amino acids L-glutamic acid, L-cysteine and glycine. Glutathione is one of your body’s most essential and powerful antioxidants, which helps to detoxify xenobiotics. A vital function of vitamin C is to keep glutathione in its reduced form so that it may continue to provide free radical destroying effects.
Vitamin C, also referred to as ascorbic acid, is a substance which can be found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin scavenges free radicals in your body and protects tissue from oxidation. Vitamin C also helps promote your body's absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is an essential co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.
Because our body's do not manufacture vitamin C internally, you must get vitamin C through either your daily diet or supplementation. Few individuals are aware that vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which is quickly oxidized and excreted by your body, which limits its efficiency. Until now, individuals that would like to capture vitamin C’s optimal health benefits have had no choice but to consume it several times throughout the day.
