Jarrow Formulas S-Acetyl-L-Glutathione is an acetylated version of glutathione. Glutathione is an ubiquitous antioxidant involved in many cellular functions such as detoxification, amino acid transport, production of coenzymes and recycling of vitamins E and C.
By serving as a critical nucleophilic scavenger, glutathione blocks free radical damage to all types of tissues. Glutathione is the most abundant intracellular thiol (sulfur-containing compound) and low molecular weight tripeptide found in living cells. Thiols such as glutathione, alpha lipoic acid and NAC are powerful sulfur-bearing antioxidants.
Preclinical research suggests S-Acetyl-L-Glutathione is more stable in the blood and increases glutathione levels within cells better than non-acetylated glutathione.
Aging is associated with a progressive decline in glutathione levels and impairment in glutathione biosynthesis in many tissues.
Glutathione plays an important role in the detoxification of alcohol. Overdosing on alcohol leads to glutathione depletion in the liver and other tissues.

What is co-enzyme Q10 and why is it important for our health?
Co-enzyme Q10, mostly shortened to Q10 is present in almost every single cell of our body. The other name for Q10 is ubiquinone, which is derived from the Latin word ubiquitous ('everywhere').
Co-enzyme Q10 is important for cellular processes in which it helps to produce energy for growth and maintenance. Co-Q10 also works as an antioxidant that protects you from the same energy-making process it’s also involved in.
While your body is capable of producting co-enzyme Q10 from food, the ability to do so, declines with age. This is why Q10 is called a conditionally essential nutrient, meaning it is required to be supplemented as we grow old.
How to cure a hangover
Quite a lot of people wake up the day after a major holiday like the recent King's Day or Liberation Day with a hangover due to imbibing too much alcohol.
The most widespread assumption is that a hangover is caused by not drinking enough water, and therefore those that aren't drunk enough to remember what to do, will drink a few litres of water before going to bed or at least will try to do so the next morning. Other very popular cures are to drink a lot of coffee and eat a hearty egg-based breakfast. Another advice was heard on the radio from a Dutch food blogger who exclaimed how eating toast with honey is a definite cure for hangovers. Around the world a myriad of folk remedies exist for this ancient 'disease'.
Do these remedies actually work and are there some others you didn't think of?
Before we dive into that, let's first discuss the hangover itself.
What causes autism?Currently an increasing amount of parents refuse to have their children vaccinated as an increasing amount of reports come in about how it is said to cause autism. As someone who formerly worked with vaccines, this sounds like an incredibly unlikely link. According to what I've heard one of the reason for the link is research conducted by a scientist who was said to have done fraudulent research. Also it is said autism is generally discovered at around the age a child is being vaccinated so the two things are related by accident and not by causation.
How to eliminate toxins?A while ago, there was a major uproar in the Dutch media about an advice given by a celeb health enthusiast to drink a glass of water with clay in order to 'detox' the body.
Unfortunately, while it is true that clay can bind to toxins, clay is not the best choice for two reasons. The clay itself can be polluted, but moreso, clay isn't the best option.
