Presentation Abstract

Optimizing Glutathione Interactions with Thiols and Centrally Acting Monoamines

Glutathione is the most common sulfur amino acid (thiol). The current science is not what is commonly believed by many. This presentation will discuss:

  • The management of glutathione’s ability to deplete serotonin and dopamine
  • The ability of L-dopa, 5-HTP, dopamine, and serotonin to deplete glutathione and the six other thiols
  • The role of homocysteine as the precursor of glutathione
  • The impact of vitamin B6 on homocysteine and glutathione concentrations
  • Glutathione’s interaction with the six other thiols
  • Glutathione’s interaction with 5-methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (5-MTHFR)
  • The use of n-acetylcysteine as a glutathione precursor
