such as mercury & lead, chemical pollutants, & carcinogens and transforms them into form that can
easily flushed out of the body via enzymatic pathway.

It enhances the body’s immune response. Studies have shown depleted levels of gluthatione are
associated with enhanced toxicity & weakend immune system.

when fighting disease. Lymphocytes, cells vital for your immune response depends on GSH for their
proper function & replication. Glutathione is crucial to the function & multiplication of these disease
fighting cells, in order to ward off invading viruses, bacteria & parasites. Restoring glutathione levels to
those found in healthy people is likely to help immune deficient person.
