Oral administration of glutathione has been demonstrated to reduce exercise-induced fatigue and improve liver function, although glutathione can be synthesized in the liver. However, little is known about the underlying mechanism of this effect. To address this, the status of food-derived glutathione in the intestine, blood, and liver was examined. Glutathione-1-13C or N-acetyl-cysteine-1-13C (NAC) was orally administered to rats (50 mg/kg). Food-derived glutathione contents within tissues were… Expand
The Effect of a Rat Diet Without Added Cu on Redox Status in Tissues and Epigenetic Changes in the Brain
Abstract The aim of the study was to determine whether feeding rats a diet without added Cu increases oxidation of macromolecules in tissues, as well as epigenetic changes in the brain. The rats wereExpand
Efficacy of glutathione for the treatment of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: an open-label, single-arm, multicenter, pilot study
TLDR
This pilot study demonstrates the potential therapeutic effects of oral administration of glutathione in practical dose for patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and large-scale clinical trials are needed to verify its efficacy. Expand
Falcarinol Is a Potent Inducer of Heme Oxygenase-1 and Was More Effective than Sulforaphane in Attenuating Intestinal Inflammation at Diet-Achievable Doses
TLDR
Both phytochemical pretreatments protected against LPS-induced reduction in intestinal barrier integrity, but FA additionally reduced inflammatory cell infiltration even below negative control. Expand
DEFLECTIONS IN GLUTATHIONE CONTENT IN SiO2 AND ABHRAK BHASMA INFLUENCED PROTECTION IN CCl4 INDUCED ACUTELY INTOXICATED LIVER AND KIDNEY IN MALE ALBINO RAT
Abhrak bhasma (Silica ore derived product) is an Ayurvedic drug used against liver diseases. CCl4 (3.00ml/kg body wt/day for 7 days) induced acute toxicity in liver and associated injury in kidneyExpand
The relationship between standard reduction potentials of catechins and biological activities involved in redox control
TLDR
D dose-dependent effects of dietary antioxidants and biological functions potentially modulated by them may become deregulated upon exposure to excessive doses. Expand
Metabolite Profile Differences Among Different Storage Time in Beef Preserved at Low Temperature.
TLDR
1(α)-naphthol, urocanic acid, tyramine, guanine, histamine, picolinic Acid, 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde, and hypoxanthine, proved to be harmful to human body, accumulated gradually, especially after 3.5 days during storage at 4 °C. Expand

Effect of orally administered glutathione on glutathione levels in some organs of rats: role of specific transporters.
TLDR
Data on absorption of orally administered glutathione (GSH) in rat jejunum and in other organs is reported, and the possible role of specific transport systems of GSH and gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase (EC 2.3.2.1; gamma-GT) activity is reported. Expand
Increase in the protein-bound form of glutathione in human blood after the oral administration of glutathione.
TLDR
There was no significant difference in GSH contents in the deproteinized fraction of plasma and blood cell fraction after GSH ingestion, however, the GSH Contents in the protein-bound fraction of Plasma significantly increased from 60 to 120 min after G SH supplementation. Expand
Effect of oral glutathione on hepatic glutathione levels in rats and mice.
TLDR
The results show that the oral intake of GSH is a safe and efficient form of administration of its constituent amino acids in cases when GSH synthesis is required to replete hepatic GSH levels. Expand
In vitro and ex vivo uptake of glutathione (GSH) across the intestinal epithelium and fate of oral GSH after in vivo supplementation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that intact GSH can be transported across intestinal epithelial cells, suggesting that GSH uptake is not proton-dependent and that the initial uptake of GSH into cells is a rapid process. Expand
Glutathione metabolism and its implications for health.
TLDR
Animal and human studies demonstrate that adequate protein nutrition is crucial for the maintenance of GSH homeostasis, and compelling evidence shows that GSH synthesis is regulated primarily by gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase activity, cysteine availability, and GSH feedback inhibition. Expand
Glutathione supplementation suppresses muscle fatigue induced by prolonged exercise via improved aerobic metabolism
TLDR
It is suggested that glutathione supplementation improved lipid metabolism and acidification in skeletal muscles during exercise, leading to less muscle fatigue. Expand
Status of glutathione and other thiols and disulfides in human plasma.
TLDR
Low levels, stability, and distribution of biologically relevant thiols and disulfides in human plasma were assessed and a method for their comprehensive and accurate determination was provided. Expand
Assay for quantitative determination of glutathione and glutathione disulfide levels using enzymatic recycling method
TLDR
The spectrophotometric/microplate reader assay method for glutathione (GSH) can assay GSH in whole blood, plasma, serum, lung lavage fluid, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, tissues and cell extracts and can be extended for drug discovery/pharmacology and toxicology protocols to study the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on glutATHione metabolism.

Oral administration of vitamin C decreases muscle mitochondrial biogenesis and hampers training-induced adaptations in endurance performance.
TLDR
Vitamin C supplementation decreases training efficiency because it prevents some cellular adaptations to exercise, and may result from its capacity to reduce the exercise-induced expression of key transcription factors involved in mitochondrial biogenesis. Expand
Purification and characterization of the flavoenzyme glutathione reductase from rat liver.
TLDR
The steady state kinetic data are consistent with a branching reaction mechanism previously proposed for glutathione reductase from yeast, and at low GSSG concentrations the rate equation can be approximated by that of a simple ping pong mechanism. Expand
