Free radicals are among the most discussed biochemical molecules; without them our existence would not be possible, since the production of ATP, in cellular respiration, occurs through a mechanism that also results in the production of such molecults. On the other hand, however, these free raicals are also responsible for changes in cellular membranes (lipid peroxidation) as well as DNA that can cause various diseases, not the least of which is cancer.
Therefore, an antioxidant status is essential for a good state of health; in other words, we must provide our bodies with a set of conditions in which we can encounter large amounts of free radicals without them being harmful to our health. It is important to streess that free radicals can come from not only exteral sources such as smoke and sunlight, but also from internal sources such as stress and exercise.
Therefore, it is appropriate to take supplements that support this antioxidant status.
GSH OX+contains antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E, which are able of deactivating free radicals directly.
Plus, it is based on the most powerful endogenous antioxidant (already present within the body), glutathione, supplying it in a form that is already partly broken down. It also supports endogenous synthesis, thanks to riboflavin, niacin and selenium, thus increasing the levels of glutathione both directly and indirectly. In addition, glutathione also participates actively in the synthesis of nitric oxide.
Another feature of the GSH OX+ is the presence of N-acetylcysteine, another powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, which has a positive effect not only on the oxidative stress relative to DNA, but also on the intestine and the nervous system.
In conclusion, GSH OX+ is a supplement that deals with the antioxidant status in a variety of ways and is also synergistic with the "classic" vitamins.
