Question Anyone have any info on glutathione?

Hi!
I was reading in a body building mag (yeah, i was just looking at the pics.) about vital glutathione levels. They say that the suppliment glutathione was supposed to be good for you, to regenerate your cellular structure. I would like to start taking them but I have a thyroid problem (hashimotos, taking 150 mcg's of levothroid) I also take a multi vitamin, extra vitamin E, vitical for calcium and singulair/rhinocort for my allergies. I haven't found anything negative on the web yet about this suppliment.

Glutithone is an enzyme produced in the human body which acts as a detoxifyer and natural cell protector in most all living tissues and cells. This enzyme is produced from the amino acids glycine, glutamic acid, and cysteine. This is one enzyme of several which is responsible for cell protection. Supplementing with Wheat Sprout will naturally boost all these enzymes.

Here is a list of them:


Suproxide Dismutase
Catalase
Glutathione Peroxidase
Methionine Reductase

Glutathione is not taken up by cells in its intact form. It has to be broken down into it's component amino acids, taken up by cells and then resynthesized. So in it's raw form, glutathione would be an expensive source of aminos that you could get by eating more protein.

S-acetylglutathione (glutathione with an acetyl group hooked onto it) is taken up by cells, directly ,and has been studied as a supplement in AIDS patients. So it's possible that that particular form could be of some use.
