Glutathione Plus™ capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contain 50 mg of glutathione in its active reduced form, and 440 mg of N-acetylcysteine. Glutathione is a tripeptide with antioxidant properties, and N-acetylcysteine is a biologically active precursor for intracellular glutathione.

Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive oxygen species (e.g., peroxides) which are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced which, in turn, can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues. The uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought to be a major contributing factor to many degenerative diseases. Glutathione is a naturally-occurring tripeptide of Lcysteine, L-glutamate and L-glycine. Glutathione is the essential cosubstrate for two major antioxidant enzymes in the body; glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. As such, glutathione offers one mechanism for scavenging toxic free radicals. Glutathione is well absorbed in the intestine, and enters the blood and other extracellular compartments where it exerts much of its beneficial antioxidant effects. However, it can not effectively enter the cell. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is a precursor for the sulfur amino acid cysteine, and cysteine is used by the body to synthesize glutathione. In contrast to glutathione, NAC is efficiently transported into the cell where it is readily converted to L-cysteine for glutathione synthesis. NAC is well absorbed, and unlike L-cysteine, is virtually nontoxic. NAC is recognized as a safe, highly effective means of increasing intracellular glutathione stores. Aside from providing cysteine as a glutathione precursor, NAC also appears to have antioxidant properties by itself, and is a valuable sulfur donor for various metabolic needs. Glutathione Plus™ combines significant levels of glutathione with N-acetylcysteine, thus providing a means of raising both extracellular and intracellular glutathione levels.

Glutathione Plus capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of glutathione and other cysteine-derived antioxidants.
