Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide that contains an unusual peptide linkage between the amine group of cysteine and the carboxyl group of the glutamate side-chain. It is an antioxidant, preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.
1. Food additives
1) to join the flour products, can play a role in reducing. Not only to reduce the time to make bread to the original one-half or one-third, greatly improve the working conditions, and play the role of food nutrition and other functions.
2) to add it to the yogurt and infant food, the equivalent of vitamin C, can play a role in stabilizer.
3) mix it into the fish cake, to prevent the color deepened.
4) added to meat and cheese and other food, with enhanced flavor effect.
Glutathione has a broad spectrum of detoxification, and can enter the body of toxic compounds such as acrylonitrile, fluoride, carbon monoxide, heavy metal ions or carcinogens, etc., and promote its excreted, can be used for the treatment of the above substances poisoning The
3. Anti-allergic agents
Anti-allergic effects, can treat the body of acetylcholine, cholinesterase imbalance caused by allergies.
4. Liver protection agent
There is the protection of the liver, inhibit the formation of fatty liver, not only for liver protection agent, but also for feed additives, the role of fish, cattle liver protection. In the breeding because of too close stocking and feed unclean often lead to fish, dairy cows appear liver dysfunction, adding glutathione can improve liver function.
Many of the biochemical reactions in the human body are enzymatic reactions, most of these enzymes with mercapto as the active group, mercapto state determines the activation and inhibition of enzyme activity. Glutathione is the natural activator of these enzymes in the cell, containing mercapto can be the human cell metabolism of H2O2 reduced to H2O, remove free radicals in the human body. Free radicals can damage the cell membrane, promote body aging, and induce tumor or atherosclerosis. On the human cells have anti-oxidation, but also improve the skin's antioxidant capacity, so that the skin shiny. Human aging, infection, poisoning, exogenous toxins, oxidative stress, and electrophilic attack can reduce the level of GSH in the cytoplasm. This phenomenon occurs at a very early stage of apoptosis and can be observed early in the early stage of apoptosis To its degradation process, so the level of detection of glutathione can be early to determine and detect apoptosis.
6. Glutathione has the function of eliminating oxidative lipid production, and anti-lipid oxidation, but also to prevent the taste of nucleotides (inosinic acid, guanosine acid) food (fish, sausages, soy sauce, etc.) Of the taste of the nucleotide decomposition and loss of fresh taste.
