Gluta-Ascorbs is a combination of two of the body’s premier antioxidant nutrients that are also its premier antitoxins.* Reduced glutathione, a thiol antioxidant nutrient, is a major water-phase antioxidant inside the cell, while Vitamin C (ascorbate) is a major water-phase antioxidant outside the cell.* The liver is the body’s main detoxification organ; it reacts to potentially toxic foreign chemicals such as bromobenzene, carbon tetrachloride, and acetaminophen together with water-soluble antioxidants to render them water-soluble, then excretes them mainly via the bile and the urine.* Ascorbate supports the action of glutathione by keeping it in the beneficial reduced form. Glutathione, in return, spares vitamin C. In the liver, the nutrients in Gluta-Ascorbs support primarily phase II detoxification.

Vitamin C is involved in a variety of biochemical reactions, including detoxification processes, white blood cell production, the reduction of glutathione, and the metabolism and protection of several other nutrients.* Vitamin C prevents free radical damage through its antioxidant activity.* Its molecular structure allows it to donate hydrogen atoms from two hydroxyl positions to neutralize free radicals.* Vitamin C is also crucial for the production of adrenal hormones involved in responding to stress.* Vitamin C has some effect on histamine release and degradation.* It is also involved in detoxifying heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and nickel.*
