    The antibodies that are produced to fight disease are just a part of the human immune system. T-cells are important as well. There are T-cells that get programmed to become specific helper T-cells as well. Antibody levels naturally drop after some time after response to a disease and this is no cause for alarm. The T-cells have not been given as much attention as neutralizing antibodies in vaccine development.

    In the words of Gustavo Bounous, MD, retired professor of surgery at McGill University in Montreal, “It’s the [body’s] most important antioxidant because it’s within the cell.” (5) Although it’s absolutely essential to maintaining a healthy immune system, it is not technically an “essential nutrient” because the body can create it from the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid (a component of glutamine) and glycine.

    Some of the functions that GSH is responsible for include: (6, 7)

    Conjugates (“links together”) with drugs to make them more digestible
    Is a cofactor (“helper molecule”) for some important enzymes
    including glutathione peroxidase (which protects you from oxidative
    damage)
    Is involved in protein disulfide bond rearrangement (which is critical for the biogenesis of one-third of all human proteins)
    Reduces peroxides (natural bleaching agents that are harmful to the body)
    Participates in leukotriene production (vital component for inflammatory and hypersensitivity reactions)
    Helps the liver detoxify fat before bile is emitted, which takes stress off of the gallbladder
    Helps detoxifies methylglyoxal, a toxin produced as a by-product of metabolism
    Cancer apoptosis (“programmed cell death”)

    In modern medicine, there are several other glutathione uses as well. Glutathione injections are sometimes given to prevent poisonous side effects of chemotherapy and also for some cases of male infertility. (8) Using intravenous glutathione for skin lightening is now a thing as well, but the evidence is lacking to back up this use. Plus, as the glutathione levels fade, so do the effects — which means more and more treatments are needed. (9)

    What are the health benefits of glutathione? In addition to helping these vital functions continue in the body, the list of glutathione benefits is extensive: (10, 11, 7)
