The role of glutathione in immunity and skin health

In an era of pandemics optimising immunity is so important. However, so is the need to ensure we are implementing this through evidence-based solutions. Glutathione is renowned as the “master antioxidant” with impressive research backing its incredible ability to reduce oxidative stress, fight free radical damage and boost the utilisation and recycling of vitamin C and Vitamin E as well as CoQ10 and Alpha Lipoic acid. In addition, Glutathione is a powerful detoxifier and plays a major role in immune function. Not only does it protect against viruses, but it is also known to support the body against many ageing diseases such as heart disease, dementia, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, high cholesterol, and many other illnesses including skin disorders. Dr Stephanie Tan is the associate medical director of iXbiopharma and a clinical trial expert. In this lecture you will learn:

  • Research updates on the role of glutathione in immunity
  • How glutathione activates other antioxidants in the body
  • Glutathione and skin health
  • The most efficient delivery system of glutathione to the cells
