Ever since glutathione made a breakthrough everybody wants to achieve a whiter and youthful skin. I will be a hypocrite if I'm going to deny that I also dreamed of having a fairer skin and yes I also used Glutathione soap and a couple of years back, I also tried taking glutathione capsules. It's effective because my skin became lighter compared to my skin color when I was in college but not that fair like Kristen Stewart...hehehe.
Apart from the wonders of making your skin whiter, glutathione is also dubbed as an antioxidant meaning they act as anti aging agents (similar to penny stocks & free radical) that enhances the immune defense and therefore lower the risk of cancer and infection.
But OXIS which stands for Advancing Oxidative Stress Technology Oxis International, Inc. (http://www.oxis.com), a research development company based in California discovered on what can be the super antioxidant compound ever. L-Ergothioneine (“ERGO”) is naturally occurring, water soluble, amino acid multifaceted antioxidant produced by microbes in the soil and most commonly found in (but not produced by) various species of mushrooms and grapes, meats and dairy products. It is said that humans and most animals typically have low levels of ERGO since the amount of ERGO in the diet is relatively small.
OXIS is developing a highly-purified ERGO which is one of the most potent, multifaceted biological compounds with appreciable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and other protective properties. I'm not sure on when it will be available in the market but for this company who developed it they believe that ERGO is valuable for Nutraceutical, Cosmeceutical and Therapeutics judging from its capabilities to protect the body.
