The great antioxidant secret of Unique Green Collagen
Over the years, our body and the functions performed by our organs are diminished by the degradation that cells undergo for different reasons. Thus, the objective of the cosmetic industry is none other than to try to reduce this degradation and extend the functional life of vital cells and organs.
To fight against this degradation, the body, and mainly the liver, naturally generates a molecule called Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that we find inside cells and whose essential function is focused on cellular protection against stress and oxidative damage. . The bad new? As we get older we make less glutathione.
What amino acids make up Glutathione?
Cysteine is a semi essential amino acid essential for the formation of glutathione, the body's main antioxidant. It is essential for the proper functioning of the immune system and to detoxify the liver from excessive intake of harmful components. Due to its anti-inflammatory and detoxifying capacity, it increases the ability to act against viruses and other pathogens in the immune system.
Glycine is a non-essential amino acid. It is the smallest amino acid, part of proteins and important in the synthesis of DNA, phospholipids, collagen and elastin, purines, bile salts, creatine, glutathione, collagen, elastin and porphyrins. It acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord, brain stem and retina.
Glutamic acid is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body and perfectly adaptable for the exchange of energy between tissues. It is a non-essential amino acid because it can be synthesized in many tissues, having a fundamental role in cell maintenance and growth.
The importance of Glutathione against aging
As we affirmed a little above, the passage of the years does not leave any body indifferent. That is why any damage to our cells can be very detrimental to the general functioning of our body. A well visible example is the aging that our skin reflects.
But there are more, some fatal, such as neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, heart disease, schizophrenia or cerebral ischemia. And as you must imagine, all these diseases are associated with oxidative stress.
How is oxidative stress produced?
To generate energy in cells and ensure that they can perform their functions correctly, we need oxygen. With it we produce a series of chemical reactions within the cell that generate this energy. Now, in parallel, oxidizing substances and toxic elements are generated, known as free radicals, which cause oxidative stress. These free radicals can cause an imbalance that is harmful to cells, tissues, and even organs.
Glutathione and its neutralizing function of free radicals
Glutathione's main function is to control free radicals from inside the cell and detoxify them from accumulated waste. With this function, we are able to neutralize free radicals, which translates into effective protection of the cell against possible damage and aging.
It should be noted that most antioxidants stop working once they have neutralized free radicals, on the other hand, Glutathione has the ability to recycle itself, and even recycle other forms of antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.
We add Glutathione to the Unique Green Collagen formula
Once we know of the direct relationship between aging and the reduction of glutathione concentrations, in case of oxidative stress, we must take the appropriate measures.
In these cases it will be of great help a diet rich in foods that are a natural source of this molecule, such as meat, chicken, fish, raw and cooked fruits and vegetables.
Knowing its importance, at Unique Green Collagen we include Glutathione as a prominent ingredient. The main objective is to help cells to carry out their functions with full guarantees. Likewise, it helps protect from the action of external oxidants that we ingest through food or toxic factors such as pollution.
