Kidney Disease & Glutathione

The rationale for people with Kidney Disease increasing glutathione is based on the evidence contained in the abstracts & articles below, which describe the crucial role Glutathione plays in Kidney Disease. Other supporting abstracts can also be found.
Glutathione plays a crucial role in mediating free radical damage & maintaining the oxidant/anti oxidant balance. When glutathione is depleted this tilts the balance in favor of the oxidants - resulting in oxidative stress. Glutathione helps scavenge the free radicals and may slow down the degenerative process.
