Glutathione is a small peptide molecule composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is produced by every cell of the body, with especially high levels in the liver. Glutathione is critical or healthy immune system function and is necessary for proper detoxification processes. It also plays a critical role in the body's defense system against oxidative stress by directly neutralizing free radicals, as well as by maintaining the activity of vitamins C and E. Milk Thistle Extract and Alpha Lipolic Acid are included as complementary ingredients.
Genistein, an isoflavone phytonutrient derived from soybeans, has been the focus of scientific research since 1966. Studies have shown that genistein can bind to the same receptor sites as estrogen. Soybeans are the only significant dietary source of genistein; however, the amount of soy foods necessary to meet the body's needs can be difficult to incorporate into today's diet. In Asia, where soy is a staple, the daily intake can be up to 20 times that of a Western Diet.
