Glutathione is widely found in animals, plants and microorganisms, and is one of the most important non-protein sulfhydryl compounds in organisms. With reduced glutathione (GSH) and oxidized glutathione (GSSG). Glutathione (GSH), which is abundant in organisms and plays a major role, participates in redox reactions in cells and is a coenzyme of certain enzymes.
Reduced glutathione (GSH) plays an important role in the human body. Clinically, it is widely used to treat liver diseases, tumors, oxygen poisoning, aging and endocrine diseases. In the food industry, it is often used as a biologically active additive and antioxidant.
Glutathione is ubiquitous in the human body and is the main "killer" of free radicals in the human body. When ultraviolet rays are irradiated to the skin, a large number of free radicals are generated, which activates the production mechanism of melanin. Glutathione can destroy these free radicals and prevent melanin production from the front end. Glutathione can inhibit the activity of tyrosinase and regulate the conversion mechanism from eumelanin to pheomelanin production.
Glutathione is widely involved in all aspects of melanin production, which can scavenge free radicals, anti-oxidize, whiten skin, lighten spots, and have anti-aging effects. Regarding these effects of glutathione, there are many relevant research literatures, which are easy to find.
