Glutathione is a tripeptide that your body can manufacture from three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. However, it’s not easy for your body to make glutathione. Once made, it gets used up very quickly to assist in the regulation of two things: free radicals and toxins. Glutathione oxidizes quickly when neutralizing free radicals. After it donates electrons, it must be recycled back into the reduced form to be used again. When glutathione clears toxins from the body, it is also excreted. This can lead to lower cellular levels of this vital compound. With constant exposure to pollutants and stress from modern living, glutathione levels are often depleted.†
You can take the weight off of your body’s own glutathione production by supplementing. However, many forms of glutathione are not bioavailable. Many will just use a standard delivery system that leaves glutathione vulnerable to destruction. Glutathione from food and supplements is often destroyed before it can be absorbed. Digestive enzymes, microbes, stomach acid, and oxidative damage all readily degrade fragile glutathione.†
Optimal Liposomal Glutathione utilizes a soy-free liposomal delivery system. This protects fragile glutathione through your GI tract to enhance delivery to your cells.†
Liposomes are tiny phospholipid vesicles that mimic our own cell membranes. By encasing glutathione in liposomes, it dramatically enhances bioavailability, absorption, and cellular update.†
Liposomal delivery protects fragile glutathione from:†
Many liposomal formulas are derived from soy. Optimal Liposomal Glutathione is soy-free. It is made from a phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine complex. These non-hydrogenated phospholipids come from GMO-free sunflower oil.
Optimal Liposomal Glutathione features glutathione in the reduced form (GSH). In the body, glutathione is present in two forms: reduced and oxidized. The reduced form is what acts as an antioxidant.†
Intense exercise decreases blood glutathione levels and generates oxidative stress. Athletes love this formula for supporting performance, recovery, and endurance.†
Healthy glutathione levels support your liver, brain, lungs, heart, and beyond. Glutathione promotes healthy energy production, normal detoxification, and antioxidant protection.†

Shake lightly before each use. Take a few drops or up to 4mL (about 3/4 tsp) by mouth, hold for a few seconds, swish and swallow. Use as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not take within 3 hours of bedtime.
Dr. Ben Lynch recommends starting small and increasing your dosage only as needed.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult with their healthcare professional prior to use. Intended for use by adults and children over 4 years of age. Consult with a healthcare professional to determine the appropriate dose and suitability for younger children.
