Acetyl-Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and wellness agent.  
Glutathione is known as the master antioxidant and is highly active in human lungs and many other organ systems and tissues.  It has a critical role in protecting cells from oxidative stress and maintaining the immune system.  Acetyl-Glutathione has selective apoptosis action.  Higher blood levels of glutathione have been associated with better health.
