A study conducted at a university clinic with individuals who have low glutathione related to HIV showed that low glutathione is associated with a decrease in defensive function of immune cells. Direct support using oral Liposomal Glutathione restores TH1 cell function and supports immune cell function related to fighting infection.
Th1 lymphocytes are critical in the cellular immune response and they play an important role in host defense system against microbial agents and viruses. In this study, tuberculosis bacteria were introduced into the participant’s immune cells in the lab. The growth of TB was significantly reduced in their cells after ingesting oral Liposomal Glutathione.
