Detoxification & Antioxidation
Glutathione has long been recognized and used worldwide as an antioxidant supplement. Through enzymatic reaction, OPITAC™ Glutathione scavenges the ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). While research into its complex function continues, OPITAC’s™ main role as an antioxidant has been corroborated, and decreasing Glutathione levels in cells has been shown to increase the risks of disease and toxicity.
It’s known that every cell in the human body is subject to over 10,000 attacks by free radicals daily. Glutathione mediates the oxidation of cells at the mitochondrial level, and as measured using DPPH methodology, enhances the effects of other antioxidants synergistically. Oxidation can’t be abated by dietary supplementation alone, but in studies, the antioxidant benefit of Vitamin C, for example, nearly doubles in combinatory effect with OPITAC™. So the addition of OPITAC™ improves the already antioxidant-rich diet that health-conscious consumers strive for, and the products they seek in that pursuit. The result is healthy, prolific cell life, resistance to aging, and protraction of the “glow of youth” that we experience early in our lives, before age takes its effect on Glutathione volumes in the body.
Early studies of whether oral ingestion of OPITAC™ helps improve liver condition and promote resistance to cell oxidation were subjectively-based. An in-house panel of male and female subjects imbibed a moderate, proportional amount of alcohol based on body weight. They were then administered either a placebo, curcumin (30 mg), or OPITAC™ (100 mg) and questioned at one-, two-, and three-hour intervals. Headache, heavy stomach, sleepiness, dizziness and other indications of lost sobriety appeared to diminish more rapidly and effectively in the OPITAC™ group. Clinical proof arrived in the concentration of alcohol in the subjects’ exhalations — vastly lower than the control and curcumin in every measurement.
