    Hi Rich - My doctor told me about a new form of glutathione - acetyl-l-glutathione, which is suppsoed to be highly bioavailable and absorbed by tissues, unlike l-glutathione. I can't post any links here, they are all commercial sites but I thought you would be interested in this and may know of more technical information.

    I've ordered some and will see how I do on it.

    Best wishes,

    Mary

    Hi, Mary.

    I've heard about this, too. So far, I think I've heard from only about 3 PWMEs who have tried it, and the reports have been mixed, so I haven't formed an opinion about it yet. I'll be interested to see how it works for you.

    Best regards,

    Rich

    But I am not convinced that the acetyl-glutathione will be utilized this way.
    Where is the evidence that will be?

    I do agree with the formulation overall particularly the need to take glutathione with NAC. Together these do a better job of clearing xenobiotics and oxidative stress metabolites than glutathione alone.
