Role of Glutathione in Skin Whitening
How Glutathione Pack can help in increasing level of Glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant which contains three 'amino acids', namely, Cysteine, Glycine and Glutamic acid. The antioxidant is available abundantly in nature --- in animals, plants, and several bacteria. Due to its properties, as an antioxidant, Glutathione can significantly and immediately reduce the damage caused by reactive oxygen.
The Glutathione antioxidant, found naturally in human cells, can essentially neutralize free radicals, enhance the immune system, detoxify the body, support several physiological functions, and protect the body from diseases.
Glutathione is also known for its skin-lightening capability because it can convert "melanin" pigment of the skin to a lighter color. In addition, it can also inhibit or deactivate the "tyrosinase" enzyme which supports melanin production, and help in the change from eumelanin to phaeomelanin production.
Glutathione is present in several fruits, vegetables and nuts, especially tomatoes, avocadoes, papaya, oranges, spinach and walnuts. It is also produced artificially in laboratories, using Cysteine, Glycine and Glutamic acid.
Cosmeceutical companies promote the benefits of Glutathione as a skin-lightening or skin-whitening agent. Glutathione is believed to lighten and brighten the skin tone and improve skin texture. It can also reduce skin pigmentation, age spots, blemishes, pimples, ulcers, freckles, and dark circles.
Glutathione is mostly available in the form of pills, beauty soaps, and topical creams. However, the use of intravenous glutathione injections is popular.
