Herbert T Nagasawa PhD on Glutathione (GSH) (AlcoholGSH)
Detoxification – GSH detoxifies many pollutants by binding to carcinogens, heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and radiation and transforming into a water-soluble compound that can then be excreted through the urine or bile. The depletion of your glutathione levels puts a major strain on the antioxidant defense system leading to oxidative stress which is a cause of many health problems.
The pollutants and toxins that you breathe and ingest are eliminated from your body by glutathione (GSH), your primary detoxification pathway. That leads to glutathione deficiency that leads to oxidative stress which is an unhealthy condition for your body.
