Glutathione is an antioxidant compound that is essential to making enzymes required by healthy tissue and is essential for controlling damage from free radicals. It is important for lens and retina health.
This spray formulation provides glutathione directly to the body with sub-mucosal absorption resulting in immediate bioavailability of key molecules to cells. A good nutrient source if you are looking for an eye vitamin spray.
Glutathione (GSH) is considered a “super-antioxidant” for overall body, brain, eye and lens health. As the most important intracellular antioxidant, GSH regulates all other antioxidants while preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.

- GSH is involved with the removal of the carcinogen, Formaldehyde, from the body
- GSH reacts with various physiological metabolites such as, estrogen, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and chemicals, such as bromobenzene and counteracts acetaminophen overdose
- GSH inhibits Influenza virus infection
- GSH interacts with Nitric oxide and both have critical roles regulating lipids, glucose, and amino acid utilization
- GSH is required for the prostaglandin H2 pathways
- GSH is involved in many other important metabolic pathways, including protein metabolism
- GSH plays an important role in spermatogenesis and sperm maturation
- GSH is required for the proliferation of cells, including lymphocytes and intestinal epithelial cells
- GSH is important for successful immune responses when the host is immunologically challenged by activating of T-lymphocytes and polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and is required for cytokine production
- GSH is involved in the process of maintaining Vitamin C and E in the active metabolic forms
