Gluta-White: Glutathione, N1-lipoic acid. Gluta-White 500: L-glutathione.
Each Gluta-White capsule contains glutathione 100 mg and α-lipoic acid 25 mg. Each Gluta-White 500 capsule contains L-glutathione 500 mg.
Glutathione is the most abundant member of the body's antioxidant network, surpassing vitamin E by several million times its concentration. Glutathione production however, declines as the patient reach the age of 40 and can drop 20% by the age of 60.
Glutathione, the "nature's master antioxidant" is an enzyme produced by the body which helps in restoring the antioxidant power of vitamin C; the storage and transport of amino acids, the building blocks of protein; giving the cells a fighting chance by preventing and repairing the oxidation and damage of the cells; turning off the inflammatory response (arthritis, autoimmune diseases and even cancer) and respiratory ailments (asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis).
Glutathione is also instrumental in the detoxification of drugs and pollutants for healthy liver functions by making such compound (ingested through food or drugs or produced by the body through normal metabolism) more water soluble and allowing those toxins to be flushed out through the kidneys. It also helps to control the levels of hormones (estrogen and testosterone) and prostaglandins which are broken down in the liver; prevents and reverses age-related signs in the bodies main organs, including the skin: Changes of tone and color, fine lines, wrinkles, cancer. It has a whitening effect on the skin by deactivation of free radicals caused by sun exposure; competitive binding with the color-forming precursors of tyrosine (dopaquinone) to form less colored melanin precursors; acts as a reducing agent to affect bleaching of colored phaeomelanin; and strong free radical scavenging antioxidant activity can lower the rate of melanogenesis.
The enzymes glutathione and α-lipoic acid have long been used as ingredients in medicines for liver diseases. Doctors and scientists observed that the patients taking these medicines were recovering and age-related signs were reversing. Recent studies reveal that the power of these 2 enzymes in fighting the cell damage is by restoring the antioxidant network. The enzymes are produced by the body but hardly in the right amount. To provide sufficient amount to meet the body requirement, existing food supplements are available.
Gluta-White/Gluta-White 500 is not only a whitening pill, but it also helps in rejuvenating the body system by eliminating harmful free radicals in the body thus, giving an inner and outer glow.
It takes 4 weeks to notice any changes in the skin. Some people have experienced skin improvement in as little as 2 weeks.
Gluta-White: Alpha-lipoic acid is the only antioxidant enzyme that can regenerate glutathione, which then regenerates vitamin C.
Use in pregnancy & lactation: Alpha-lipoic acid is not advisable to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It would be better to wait until a few months later before taking Gluta-White/Gluta-White 500.
There are no known side effects of reduced glutathione and α-lipoic acid, but it is prudent to observe the body for any reactions of Gluta-White/Gluta-White 500.
