Glutathione: The Master Antioxidant
Glutathione Precursors: Key PointsImmune Health Science, Glutathione Precursors or Building Blocks.
•Cellular production of glutathione depends on the availability of three amino acids: glutamate, glycine, and cysteine.
• The first two, glutamate and glycine, are non-essential amino acids because they can be manufactured by our body or obtained from the foods we eat.
• The all-important cysteine is a sulfur-based amino acid that can be produced in our body from methionine.
• What is noteworthy is that methionine is considered an essential amino acid because our body cannot make it.
