Glutathione supports cellular health by finding and eliminating free radicals (1).

Glutathione Mode of Action
Glutathione (y-L-Glutamyl-L-cysteinyglycine) is a free radical neutralizer that is an endogenous in the body (2). It is primarily synthesized in the liver and consists of the amino acids glycine, glutamic acid, and cysteine (3).
Glutathione is an integral part of cellular health.
Glutathione can be sourced from meats, fruits, and vegetables but dietary intake does not raise levels of glutathione in the body. Cellular glutathione increases during exercise. Glutathione decreases with age (3).
Pure Nootropics' Glutathione Capsules provides 500 mg of Glutathione per capsule. Suggested use for adults is 1 capsule (or 500 mg powder weighed on a digital milligram scale) by mouth on an empty stomach daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
