Glutathione & Your Training

Greetings, team!  I am partnering up with BioDose Pharma, the makers of GlutaDose, in order to help bring attention to the benefits of Glutathione and how it can improve your health and fitness.

Glutathione is a true antioxidant that naturally occurs within all humans, as well as in many flora and fauna. Its functions include the prevention of cellular damage from free radicals, rebuilding damaged tissue, and maintaining the body’s immune system to fight various kinds of poisoning.

The two factors I am most interested in, of course, its role in fighting free radicals. and how its role in tissue repair can help us in the gym.

The term “antioxidant” gets thrown around often by brands these days, so it’s good to understand what that term actually means. You may see it on labels for all kinds of products, and it’s important to make sure that it’s not just being used as a buzzword.

Glutathione is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine). Glutathione is a free-radical scavenger and a detoxifying agent transforming free-radicals into harmless inactive compounds.

It also plays a large role in the uptake of amino acids, found within the proteins of our diet.
