How do antioxidants work? Watch this:

Antioxidants come up frequently in discussions about good health and preventing diseases. We have all heard about antioxidants, but has anyone heard of the mother of all antioxidants?Maybe only a few of us know who the mother of Antioxidant is- the one that can prevent cancer, heart disease, aging, neurological issues, and more health problems.

Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants

The antioxidant that is still unknown to us is glutathione (pronounced “gloota-thigh-own”). It is a simple molecule that your body produces naturally. It combines three building blocks of proteins or amino acids – glycine, cysteine, and glutamine.

Glutathione (GSH) is a master antioxidant and detoxifier of every cell in your body. It is an important antioxidant, a tripeptide with a gamma peptide linkage between the carboxyl group of the glutamate side chain and the amine group of cysteine (which is attached by normal peptide linkage to a glycine).

The greatest secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule that fight against chronic diseases by removing all free radicals and toxins from the body just like mercury and heavy metals. No wonder it is called as the powerful immune booster and detoxifier.
