About Acetyl-Glutathione


Acetyl-glutathione is a compound normally found in a human body, as an analog to the potent antioxidant, reduced glutathione.

Glutathione is of course a potent intracellular antioxidant, and it’s depletion is a component of every chronic disease, or inflammatory condition, or the most chronic of circumstances; aging. It may also act; as other peptides have been found to behave, as a signal to other metabolic processes.

Reduced glutathione is acted upon by peptidases almost immediately in the blood, and tissues and thus loses its ability to enter cells and act intracellularly. This happens in a very short period of time and thus IV glutathione while having a remarkable impact on metabolism is short lived. Inhalation of glutathione has shown promise in COPD and emphysema and we believe that this continues to be a valuable tool ; however, continual inhalation treatment along with oral acetyl-glutathione supplementation seems to work much better.

Acetyl-glutathione ( acetylated at any one of the three possible positions of the tripeptide ) is made by the liver and transported to all other tissues. It is easily assimilated intracellularly and then allowed to perform its powerful antioxidant and metabolic regulatory effects without prior decomposition by peptidases.

It has been found that Acetyl-glutathione is absorbed orally and is transported to all tissues of the body with remarkable anti-aging effects, anti-viral effects and in some studies an effect on some cancers. More and more is being discovered about this remarkable compound. Studies are on going on the use of this product in HIV infections, most cancers and all inflammatory diseases.

    I’ve had chronic halitosis since childhood, over 30 years. There’s just not enough time to list the measures taken trying to find a cure but I finally gave up when a doctor told me to just chew gum. (In case you are wondering my dental hygiene is perfect). It was time to throw out conventional medicine and explore Naturopathic Medicine. Based on blood, stool, salvia tests and the Yellow/greenish color to my tongue, the Doctor concluded that my Liver is not processing fast enough which is causing bad bacteria overgrowth in my Upper GI. He also said the results reflected high levels of Candida; therefore he has me on a daily routine of Acetyl-glutathione 300 mg with food once per day. I’ve been taking Acetyl-glutathione for two months unfortunately I have not gotten the results desired and think this process could take more time; therefore i would like to know if there are any health risks to taking this supplement for an extended period of time. Would appreciate your thoughts!


    • Hi Pat, thank you for your inquiry. I will respond privately via email. I have some recommendations that I’d be happy to share with you.
      Thank you, Ted
