Replenish your body's natural antioxidant defenses quickly with our rapid-absorption Swanson Ultra Sublingual L-Glutathione tablets.
Glutathione, one of the most important antioxidants in human physiology, is found in every cell in the body. To scientists, glutathione is known as the "master antioxidant" because it not only neutralizes free-radicals, it also re-activates other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, providing broad-spectrum protection for the mind and body. It is also involved in numerous biochemical reactions such as protein and DNA synthesis and enzymatic activation, affecting virtually every system in the body, particularly the gastrointestinal, respiratory, nervous and immune systems.
Glutathione is a tripeptide molecule made from the amino acids L-glutamic acid, L-cysteine and glycine. Most glutathione is in the human body is manufactured endogenously from its amino acid constituents. Unfortunately, as we grow older, our endogenous glutathione production declines, compromising our antioxidant defenses and leaving us vulnerable to the ravages of free-radicals. Because free-radical damage is in itself a major contributor the aging process, this age-related decrease in glutathione production can lead to a self-perpetuating cycle of mental and physical decline. Fortunately, we can put the brakes on this cycle by augmenting the body's natural glutathione production through supplementation.
Swanson Ultra Sublingual L-glutathione tablets are formulated to help you rapidly replenish your antioxidant defenses to youthful levels. They feature Setria(R) glutathione, a vegetarian-source form of reduced glutathione produced in Japan through a patented fermentation process that yields 99% purity, meeting the specifications for both the Japanese Pharmacopoeia and the USP monograph.
Representing the gold standard in supplemental glutathione, Setria is readily recognized by the body as more than 90% of the glutathione found in healthy cells and tissues is in the reduced form. In this reduced, active form, glutathione is able to donate electrons to unstable reactive oxygen species and thus neutralize them before they can cause damage, providing valuable antioxidant support for the liver's detoxification processes, healthy immune system function and cardiovascular, skin, eye and colon health.
Swanson Ultra Sublingual L-glutathione tablets are made with advanced Supplemelts™ technology for fast "melt-in-your-mouth" dissolution that ensures rapid, efficient absorption by the body and optimal bioavailability. They feature great-tasting natural orange flavoring and are completely sugar free, sweetened naturally with noncaloric, dental-friendly xylitol and stevia leaf extract.
