Ah yes, glutathione, the"mother of all antioxidants"! 👩✨
While whey protein does not contain glutathione, it does contain glutathione precursors (ie. building blocks) that your body can use to make its own glutathione.
The precursors for glutathione production (cysteine, glycine and glutamate) are found in abundance in whey protein as is a unique cysteine residue (glutamylcysteine) that is especially good at converting into glutathione.
How do glutathione precursors compare to regular glutathione supplements?
Glutathione is difficult for the body to digest and absorb so regular glutathione supplements are actually an inferior way to boost this important compound.
This is why glutathione precursors (such as those found in Organic Whey) are the superior way to increase glutathione levels in the body.
