5 things you should know about L-Glutathione

L-Glutathione is commonly known as one of the best solutions on how to get white skin. Most people only know that this ingredient is strong and very beneficial towards skin whitening. They do not know that its discovery back in 1988 provided information about its composition. But in 1984, more information was discovered on how it works in making our skin fairer and lighter and its other major benefits.

Here are 5 important things you should know more about L-Glutathione:


#1: L-Glutathione is a strong anti-oxidant

Glutathione is a small molecule in our body. It is a protein found in each of our cells containing Cysteine, Glutamic Acid, and Glycine.  This combination of amino acids makes it a strong antioxidant, which helps prevent damage caused by harmful free radicals.


#2: L-Glutathione is naturally found in vegetables, fruits, and meat

Without the use of beauty supplements, small amounts of Glutathione can be consumed from fresh vegetables such as garlic, broccoli, cabbage, onions and cauliflowers. You can get more of it through fruits such as melons, squash, strawberries, grapefruits, avocados, and peaches. Glutathione is also found in red meats.


#3: L-Glutathione makes the skin whiter and fairer

 Glutathione found in foods are in large molecule forms which would be harder and take a longer time to be absorbed by the body. Due to innovation and technology, Glutathione is reduced in molecule form and turns into L-Glutathione found in most whitening products in Malaysia such as Total Image L-Glutathione 400mg. It is in this form that it provides the benefits of skin bleaching by reversing the melanin production of eumelanin (dark pigmentations) and inducing phaeomelanins (lighter pigmentations) in return. Total image L-Glutathione is one of the best whitening products in Malaysia. It is proven to be more effective as a pure L-Glutathione supplement than other products that contain other whitening ingredients besides L-Glutathione.  The recommended safe and effective dosage for daily intake is 400mg.


#4: L-Glutathione makes the skin look and feel better

Besides the most common benefit of skin whitening, L-Glutathione as an anti-oxidant boosts the immune system and improves overall health. This holistic benefit reflects on our skin which helps lighten and reduce scars, freckles, and age spots; provide extra nutrients that make the skin glow and feel supple and smooth.


#5: L-Glutathione can help cleanse the liver too

Glutathione molecules are mainly found in the liver. Being a strong anti-oxidant, it also helps in liver detoxification and cleansing.
