LIPO Glutathione™ is a sustained-released liposomal delivery system that provides superior absorption of Glutathione in easy-to-swallow capsules.
Our process encapsulates and delivers Glutathione intracellularly in its complete form where it can be absorbed and utilized rather than being destroyed in the stomach.
Increasing Glutathione in the body supports your liver and its detoxification abilities. Glutathione (GSH) is the most abundant endogenous antioxidant and a critical regulator of oxidative stress. Maintenance of optimal tissues GSH levels has been shown to be an important strategy for prevention of oxidative stress-related diseases.
LIPO Glutathione™ offers advanced support for:
▸ Liver tissue protection
▸ Healthy fat metabolism
▸ Free radical damage
▸ Strengthening immunity
Liposomal Glutathione: Key to Oxidative Stress
Glutathione is a diverse nutrient that can be used as a nutritional supplement to support many areas of health – from the lungs to the liver and more. The Free Radical Theory of Aging mechanistically links oxidative stress to aging. 1
Known as the “Master Antioxidant,” its levels decrease as a result of aging, stress and toxin exposure. Boosting glutathione may provide many health benefits, including reduction of oxidative stress. 2
Because glutathione can be broken down rapidly in the digestive tract, it is important to select a glutathione supplement that is formulated to survive exposure to digestive enzymes and be well absorbed.
The liposomes surround each molecule and protect the core ingredients from the digestive system while increasing its transport and uptake by your cells.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione, also referred to as GSH, is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids – glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid.1 Glutathione is a naturally occurring intracellular antioxidant found abundantly in nearly every cell in your body. This potent molecule plays such a crucial role in our bodies, it’s even been dubbed “the mother of all antioxidants.” There is increasing awareness of its utility in mitigating body toxin load. 3
Glutathione is a biomarker associated with disease risk and health status that has potential to translate to an important target relevant to health optimization, disease prevention, and treatment. As a result, it is possible that supporting the body’s endogenous levels of glutathione would be important for maintaining health and mitigating disease. 4
Some of the critical roles Glutathione plays in your body include:
- Scavenging and neutralizing harmful free radicals
- Acting as a signaling molecule and modulating your immune response
- Regenerating other important antioxidants like Vitamins C and E
- Supporting mitochondrial function (the powerhouse of your cells)
- Transporting toxic heavy metals, like mercury, out of your cells
- Regulating cellular proliferation and apoptosis (programmed cell death)
Glutathione depletion is indicative of oxidative stress and occurs in various pathological conditions and following extreme exercise activity. Raising blood glutathione concentration has potential to attenuate and prevent chronic disease and also to improve recovery from exercise. 5
Liposomal Glutathione More Effective
Clinical research aiming to improve glutathione concentration requires sufficient glutathione absorption and delivery. Researchers turn to liposomal glutathione to achieve sustained bioavailability.
Results from two recent studies showed that liposomal nanoformulation absorption is more effective for raising blood glutathione levels in humans than non-liposomal glutathione. 1
Both studies report a very rapid decline in bioavailability of non-liposome-encapsulated glutathione compared to liposomal glutathione.
Liposome Encapsulated Glutathione Elevates Body Stores
The results of a recent study demonstrated increased body stores of Glutathione (GSH) after oral administration of Liposomal GSH humans. 2
Since GSH is subject to destruction in the acid environment of the stomach, researchers tested that oral liposomal GSH might be an effective means of GSH delivery in vivo.
Finally, liposomal GSH was highly tolerated and its administration was not associated with any signs of adverse effects. 3
The results from this study provide support for the potential use of oral liposomal Glutathione as an intervention strategy for enhancing tissue Glutathione levels for use in disease therapy or prevention.
Liposomal Glutathione effects were often greater that previously observed for non-liposomal Glutathione . 4
Oral Glutathione Supports Skin Elasticity
Glutathione showed trends in increased skin elasticity at various sites, both sun-exposed and sun-protected skin in a recent study. 5
“In summary, we have shown that oral glutathione, 250 mg/d, in both reduced and oxidized forms have various beneficial effects on skin properties and is possibly an anti-aging agent, at least in middle-aged female subjects.”
