Glutathione is a protein that is made by the body from three amino acids: glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. Oral supplementation of glutathione often isn't very effective, because glutathione is broken down by digestive enzymes in the stomach and intestines.
Quicksilver Scientific makes liposomal glutathione. Liposomes are transport-molecules made from fats and phospholipids. The liposome container protects glutathione from digestive enzymes. Liposomes also improve the uptake of glutathione by the body and the transportation of glutathione into cells.
As an additional benefit, Quicksilver Scientific uses a reduced form of glutathione (Opitac™) in their formulation. This is the active form of glutathione and can be used by the body right away. Opitac glutathione is produced by torula yeast (Candida utilis) as a by-product of their natural fermentation. Opitac glutathione is produced in a facility that follows GMP guidelines (Good Manufacturing Practices).
Oral glutathione supplements aren't always very palatable. Quicksilver Scientific Liposomal Glutathione is flavoured with natural citrus and mint oils.
Take 2-4 pumps of Quicksilver Scientific Liposomal Glutathione 1-3 times per day. Keep the liquid in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. Liposomal Glutathione can also be mixed with water. Best taken on an empty stomach, at least 10 minutes before a meal.
Use within 30 days after opening. Refrigerate immediately upon delivery and store cooled.
