Gluthathione is endogeneous! Which means that it is created naturally within all the trillions millions of cells in our bodies.
Unlike other nutrients which are exogenous, meaning our bodies do not create them and we need to supply our body with them through the foods we eat.
Our bodies actually MAKE glutathione.
By the way, this is just one of the reasons why glutathione supplements that give your body glutathione are essentially worthless.
Much wiser to take a glutathione accelerator. Which means it helps your body to MAKE more glutathione.
Do you want some man-made glutathione which your body DOES NOT readily absorb anyways OR glutathione made within your own body?
There is only ONE glutathione accelerator PROVEN to work (in published double-blind placebo studies)in helping your body make almost 300% MORE glutathione rapidly!
