Glutathione (gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine) is a peptide-like (short-protein) molecule synthesized in the body from the three amino acids: L-glutamic acid, L-cysteine and glycine. Glutathione is one of the body's most important and powerful antioxidants helping to detoxify xenobiotics. A major function of vitamin C is to keep glutathione in its reduced form so it can continue to provide free radical-quenching affects.
L-cysteine is a conditionally essential amino acid, one of only three sulfur-containing amino acids, the others being taurine (which can be produced from L-cysteine) and L-methionine from which L-cysteine can be produced in the body by a multi-step process. Cysteine plays a role in the sulfation cycle, acting as a sulfur donor in phase II detoxification and as a methyl donor in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Cysteine also helps synthesize glutathione, one of the body's most important natural detoxifiers.
