Optimal Liposomal Glutathione, by Seeking Health, provides 500 mg of pure reduced glutathione per serving in a base of natural phospholipids derived from non-GMO sunflower oil - not soy! Glutathione is an important antioxidant found in every cell in our bodies, providing protection from free radicals and peroxides.* Imagine an apple that turns brown when left in the open air.
When you apply lemon juice onto the flesh of the apple that deterioration will not occur. The antioxidants in the lemon juice protect the flesh of the apple, and prevent damage or degradation. Glutathione is like lemon juice for the body; it helps protect cells from oxidative damage and may help support immune health.*

Frequently Asked Questions
Bulging at the bottom of the container is normal and occurs with elevation change during shipping.
How much is usually taken?
The amount of Optimal Liposomal Glutathione needed varies between individuals. Shake lightly before each use. On an empty stomach or between meals, fill 1 tsp nearly full and mix in 1 oz of water, juice or take directly in mouth. Given the potent taste of glutathione, it is best to mix in juice. Use as directed by your healthcare professional.
How long should I wait before/after eating to take this supplement?
We recommend waiting at least 15 minutes before and after eating to take any liposomal formula.
The Liposomal Glutathione directions say to take on an empty stomach or between meals. If it is taken first thing in the morning, how much time is recommended to wait before eating any food or drinks?

Where is this formula manufactured?
Our products are made in a certified GMP facility. When a product is bottled, it is removed from the master container, put into another container which is sterile, and then moved to the packaging room. The packaging room has only one machine and entirely closed in with a fan to the outside environment. The humidity is also controlled which improved the stability of the product. Our containers are free of BPA and are professional grade.
Does Liposomal Glutathione actually absorb into the body? We have heard it doesn't really work in the body and that a person needs NAC instead or to do a glutathione push, is this correct?
Liposomal nutrients are designed to move past the cell membrane due to their phospholipid structure. The glutathione is inside a phosphatidylcholine liposome. Blood levels of glutathione increase after taking liposomal glutathione. Glutathione pushes do not last long as the ½ life of glutathione is only about 12 minutes. Liposomal glutathione appears to elevate blood glutathione levels more effectively than IV – and longer term.
I am concerned that my product has gone rancid, but it is far from expiration. The product smells like rotten eggs, and doesn't taste great either. Has my product gone bad?
No. Glutathione is very high in cysteine. Cysteine is very high in sulfur. Sulfur compounds notoriously smell strongly, and many describe the odor as similar to "rotten eggs." So, in a way, the rotten egg smell you might perceive when opening Optimal Liposomal Glutathione is actually a sign of a high quality product! We’ve worked hard to make this product as palatable as possible, by masking the flavor of the glutathione using only natural flavors. It is not easy to mask, but most think we've done a pretty good job. If the flavor of the Optimal Liposomal Glutathione is too strong for you to handle, you may consider taking it followed by a pleasant-tasting organic fruit juice, or followed by our Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C, which has a much more popular flavor.
