Scientists are unraveling the hidden natural processes by which the body heals itself and are learning how to mimic and optimize this process. One such substance, L-glutathione, has long been recognized by researchers as the body's key protector, but to date, has not been widely commercialized. Thione International, Inc. is capitalizing on this gap in the marketplace and is quickly emerging as the leading expert in this area. However, glutathione does not work alone.
Scientists have become increasingly aware of how our bodies become susceptible to disease and the body’s mechanisms for preventing disease. Extensive research has shown that many diseases are caused by excessive toxic free radicals, which overwhelm the body to the extent that our body’s endogenous antioxidant defense system simply cannot handle. More simply put, when this internal antioxidant defense system becomes overwhelmed, our organs become damaged and we get sick. Through research however, scientists are learning that antioxidant supplementation may be the key to preventing these diseases.
Recent scientific studies illustrate two very critical points: (1) all antioxidants are not equal; and (2) combinations of synergistic antioxidants are far superior to singular antioxidants. Based on these studies, we have developed and patented a unique composition of synergistic antioxidants, centered around the body’s most important antioxidant, L-glutathione. This composition is known as the “Thione Antioxidant Complex™. Unlike singular antioxidant compositions currently offered for sale, this particular combination of antioxidants is far more powerful because it replicates the body’s own cellular antioxidant defense system. In other words, although singular antioxidants such as vitamin C or vitamin E are useful, once they have accomplished their job, attacking a free radical, they themselves are oxidized and become a free radical. However, if they are combined with other specific synergistic antioxidants, particularly L-glutathione, they become rejuvenated and then can continuously do their job – just like the cellular defense system.
