Glutathione is involved in tissue building and repair, detoxification, immune system function, and making chemicals and proteins needed in the body. Supplements of Glutathione are often recommended for health conditions including Alzheimer’s and heart disease. It can also be used to lighten skin and fight visible signs of aging.
