What is glutathione? In short, it’s a very powerful antioxidant that the body (the liver) makes and uses every day, and can be found in every cell in the body. It’s made up of three types of molecules known as amino acids and benefits the skin by boosting overall health. Since it is an antioxidant, it neutralizes and eliminates the free radicals (unstable atoms) that damage the skin at the cellular level to cause ageing and discolouration. (therefor often used as as skin whitening).
Glutathione has many important health functions and benefits, for example:
- supporting immune function
- helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fats
- regenerating vitamins C and E
- anti-aging properties
- detoxifies the body
When we expose ourselves to certain factors such as stress, environmental toxins, poor nutrition and, well, age (kind of hard to escape) the level of glutathione is reduced. Which we simply don’t want.
If you want to add glutathione as a daily supplement you can always go for the capsules, however, there’s a more pleasant way to go about this. Supermood is providing us with the beauty of Dark Chocolate with Glutathione. Voila’! I think this is a brilliant idea, as this is way more exciting than capsules 🙂
