Glutathione Food Sources

Glutathione, the most critical endogenous antioxidants created from three amino acids, cysteine, glutamate, and glycine, protects cells against oxidative damage, tissue degeneration and disease progression caused by chemicals, metals, infections and other toxins and internal processes. When estrogen levels decline during perimenopause and menopause, glutathione levels also decline leading to aging of cells and disease progression.

Consuming a diet high in glutathione and amino acids needed for its production helps improve cellular glutathione levels, thereby slowing aging and risks for other diseases.

Below are a list of foods to consider in your diet on a regular basis to improve glutathione levels.
