L-Glutathione as a skin whitener

• As a skin whitener, Glutathione works by modifying conversion of eumelanine, or the dark pigmentation, to phaeomelanin, or the light pimentation. Therefore, instead of naturally producing eumelanin which causes skin darkening, glutathione alters the process and turn yields phaeomelanin which makes the skin lighter and more radiant. L-Glutathione as anti-aging & Detoxifier

• As an anti-aging mean, L-Glutathione is necessary in breakdown of oxidized fats and in carbohydrate metabolism. If glutathione supply in the body is insufficient, cells will expire more rapidly, thus making people age faster and more susceptible in toxin induced diseases like cancer.

• As a detoxifier / anti-oxidant agent, L-Glutathione works by scavenging free radicals that inhibits the body. Glutathione does this by binding toxins into a form which can be easily excreted by our body.

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy. Other antioxidants work only in water (such as vitamin C) or fatty tissues (such as vitamin E), but alpha-lipoic acid is both fat- and water-soluble. It appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up. Alpha lipoic acid increases the formation of glutathione. As an antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid can neutralize free radicals which can damage cells. Free radical damage is thought to contribute to aging and chronic illness. Dose for White L-Glutathione
