The Powerful Antioxidant Dual that Brings A Brighter Complexion – Glutathione and Alpha-Lipoic Acid
Glutathione is a peptide molecule synthesized in the body from 3 amino acids, namely glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. It is the most important and most abundant water-soluble antioxidant inside the cell.1-4 It is produced by every cell of the body, with especially high levels in the liver.1-4 Similarly, alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant; but unlike glutathione, it can work in both aqueous (inside the cells) and lipid environments (fluid outside the cells).5-8
As antioxidants, they help to delay aging by directly neutralizing free radicals and hence, reducing oxidative stress. One of the most beneficial effects of alpha-lipoic acid and glutathione is their ability to rejuvenate each other and also other essential antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, and the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx).1-8
Glutathione is also a natural antioxidant in the liver.1-4 Together with alpha-lipoic acid, they help to detoxify xenobiotics, solvents, pesticides, heavy metals and alcohol.4-8 By reducing the toxic load in the body, skin complexion can be greatly improved.
In the skin, glutathione binds to tyrosinase and helps prevent the enzymatic pathways from producing melanin.9-10 Because of its role in liver detoxification and powerful antioxidant activity, human studies have shown that glutathione supplementation may help with skin brightening.9-10
Milk Thistle Extract Helps to Support Liver
The active extract of milk thistle, called silymarin. Silymarin has shown to be one of the most potent substances in promoting liver health.11-14 Its main benefits appear to be support of healthy DNA function, stabilization of plasma membranes, and stimulation of liver cells.11-14 It has also been shown to even increase total glutathione levels in the liver.15-16 A healthier and enhanced liver detoxification function help to bring about a healthier and fairer skin.9-10
