Thione Complex
The Components of the Thione Complex™

The Thione Complex™ replicates the synergistic antioxidant defense system of the body. Glutathione is the hub of the wheel of antioxidants in the Thione Complex™, with Selenium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, Superoxide Dismutase and other vital cellular glutathione enzymes and antioxidants being the spokes. Each of these antioxidants or enzymes are remarkable in their own right, but glutathione is the hub which keeps them working and keeps the defensive cycle in motion.


It is the body’s most important antioxidant and is also present in most plants and animals. It acts as the body’s key protector and vital anti-aging defender. Without glutathione, people suffer from the inability to detoxify metabolic wastes and scavenge free radicals, leading to heart and lung disease, cancers and immune and nervous system disorders. To maintain normal functioning of the immune system, effective levels of glutathione must be maintained to protect the body. Glutathione reacts with other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E to maintain them in their usable form so that they may function most effectively. Single antioxidants have some limited effectiveness in fighting free radicals, but an excess of a single antioxidant may actually accumulate in the cell and act as a pro-oxidant, thereby contributing to formation of more free radicals, e.g. they can actually do the opposite of what they are being used for. When antioxidants are used in the right combination and quantities, they tend to be synergistic and their protection is enhanced.


Selenium is crucial to the glutathione synergistic cycle because it works as a cofactor for the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, enabling glutathione and glutathione peroxidase to work together to destroy free radicals. It is rapidly gaining notoriety for its anti-carcinogenic properties and potential protection against coronary artery disease and strokes. Selenium supplementation also improves assimilation of vitamin E.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient that is a workhorse among antioxidants. It protects against harmful effects of tobacco smoking and helps to prevent emphysema, chronic bronchitis and other forms of chronic lung disease. Vitamin C also promotes healing, stimulates cell regeneration and helps deposition of collagen, the tissue’s supporting structure. Apart from its own beneficial functions, it works synergistically with glutathione to revive vitamin E that has been oxidized in its efforts to destroy free radicals.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient that along with other antioxidants can reduce the risk of heart disease, neutralize free radicals and moisturize the skin. However, it is difficult to derive enough vitamin E from foods to assure a powerful defense against free radicals and thus, by supplementing the body’s stores of vitamin E and providing for its continuous regeneration, the Thione Complex™ can greatly enhance the natural benefits of this vitamin. Vitamin A Vitamin A is a fat-soluble nutrient found only in animal products, which is made by the body from beta-carotene. It heals and keeps skin supple, aids in keeping blood vessels healthy and in preventing bleeding. Vitamin A also helps the eyes maintain healthy vision.


The greatest service of this thiol or sulphur antioxidant is in raising the body’s levels of glutathione, as it is one of the three amino acids of glutathione. It is also regarded by many biochemists as an important antioxidant for cancer prevention.

Superoxide Dismutase

A group of vital enzyme antioxidants, superoxide dismutase stops free radical chain reactions, causing the destructive oxygen free radicals to be converted to less toxic molecules.

Grape Seed Extract

A well proven group of bioflavonoid antioxidants, grape seed extracts are generally used as “re-enforcers” derived from their powerful antioxidant molecules called anthocyanidins. They are vital in protection of the eyes and blood vessels from free radical damage. Anthocyanidins of grape seeds protect connective tissues by inhibiting destruction of collagen and protection of capillary walls.

Green Tea

The most consumed beverage in the world, green tea extract provides potent polyphenols which act as antioxidants to scavenge free radical species. Green tea’s catechins are recognized for their anti-carcinogenic properties.
