Glutathione is the master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant. Toxins are linked to glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and stool, and out of the body. It protects our cells delicate chemical machinery, and helps our energy metabolism run efficiently.
Glutathione is also integral to our immune system, especially for resistance to viruses.

Glutathione is the body’s premiere endogenous (internally produced) antioxidant and is integral to multiple bodily systems, including detoxification. It’s also the body’s main detoxification compound and is crucial to effective immune function, yet the body’s production of glutathione declines with age, stress, and disease states. Glutathione is poorly absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, and our Etheric Delivery™ liposomal Glutathione brings proven technology for trans-mucosal delivery of difficult-to-absorb compounds.
Glutathione is known as the “master antioxidant,” glutathione is your body’s most powerful and versatile antioxidant. Found in every cell of your body, it plays a diverse role in protecting your cells and mitochondria from oxidative and peroxidative damage and is also essential for detoxification, energy utilization, and preventing the diseases we associate with aging. (1) Glutathione protects us from reactive oxygen species, persistent organic pollutants, and heavy metals, and it plays a role in cellular signaling and programmed cell death. (2) Research into the mechanisms of chronic health conditions show that glutathione plays a pivotal role in the health and longevity of the subjects involved. In fact, study after study shows that disturbances in glutathione homeostasis are correated with the progression of a number of human diseases, including diseases of aging, cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular, inflammatory, immune (autoimmune), metabolic (diabetes), and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, and MS. (3) Given the extraordinary amount of research indicating glutathione’s ability to promote health and longevity, it’s important to consume the most effective and convenient means of supplementation. Research shows that oral glutathione is very poorly absorbed. In fact, some cell culture research shows more than a 100-fold greater cellular uptake of liposomal glutathione formulations over aqueous glutathione. (4).
Quicksilver Scientific uses a phospholipid encapsulation system that improves upon basic liposomal technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed, single-layer spheres (called unilamellar vessicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. These small vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, ensuring high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the stomach and intestines. Quicksilver uses the same high-tech equipment, rigorous processes, and tight particle-size controls used by pharmaceutical companies.
