This is the type a certain LLMD recommends in his book.

I've been on it for just over a week and am not sure if it's doing anything or not. Anyone else have experience with it?

I know glutathione is unstable and easily degraded into precursers in oral form, but the acetyl group added to this product is claimed to make it less so.

It's made by the Maplewood Company. Info from their website:

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 component of every chronic disease, or inflammatory condition, or the most chronic of circumstances is 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 peptidase almost immediately in the blood, and tissues and thus loses its ability to enter cells and act intercellularly. 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-glutatione supplementation seems to work much better.

Acetyl-glutathione (acetylated at anyone ofthe 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 metobolic 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 an the use of this product in HIV infections, most cancers and all infammatory diseases.

(The ole disclaimer: I'm not a doctor.)

I just started taking it too and had felt worse, but who knows if it has ANYTHING to do with that or not?? I am going to continue to take it and see.

I was hoping it would help with some neuro symptoms that I get. Hopefully someone else who has taken it longer will be able to tell us if it helped them.

It seems like I take so many pills so if something doesn't help, I really don't want to continue taking it.

I have an LLMD appt in a few weeks and will ask about that and the buluoke that I just started taking also.

I took this for about 4 months along with nebulised Glutathione. As was using both at same time was hard to tell which was helping...but when I ran out of the nebulisd form and just had the Acetyl oral form to take I really missed the nebulized one!....So for me that definitely works better! I have decided to stop the Acetyl one, as just couldn't justify the cost!
