TAD 600 (Injectable Glutathione) is an extremely powerful antioxidant. In fact it's the most powerful antioxidant in the human body.
Oral Glutathione is sold in supplement shops however they are practically useless as Glutathione is not very bio-available in oral form. The most common way people get their Glutathione is by supplementing with NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) which is also available OTC at supplement shops. NAC is relatively cheap and converts to Glutathione in the body. NAC is a decent method to get some Glutathione in your system but is nowhere near as effective as injectable Glutathione.
What is an antioxidant?
An antioxidant is essentially an atom-sized soldier that fights off free radicals in our body.
What is a free radical?
A free radical is an unstable atom with missing electron(s) in its outer shell. In order to become stable the free radical atom will bond with another atom in the body to use it's electrons to replace the missing ones in its outer shell. This bond between the free radical and other atom causes a reaction which turns the atom into a completely different chemical.
Free radicals are created naturally in the body as a result of chemical reactions which release unstable oxygen atoms. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do to prevent this as it is just a natural part of our biology and is one of the main causes of aging. However things like drinking alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc., all speed up the production of free radicals because your body has to forego chemical reactions to break down the substances and fight off toxins. These chemical reactions release free radicals.
So let's say you have several alcoholic beverages. The alcohol eventually makes its way to the liver and the liver uses chemical reactions (enzymes) to break down the alcohol. These chemical reactions have bi-products and one of those bi-products is free radicals (unstable oxygen atoms). So now there are free radicals roaming around in the cells of your liver and they are unstable (missing electrons) and need to bond to another atom/molecule to become stable again. So now these free radials are bonding to atoms in your liver cells which slowly damages the cell until it dies. Over time more and more liver ells will die and turn into scar tissue and that's how you get Cirrhosis of the liver.
Where do antioxidants come into play?
Antioxidants are basically sacrificial heroes that come in and sacrifice themselves to free radicals to prevent them from acting on other atoms. Anti oxidants will allow free radicals to bond with them, offering up their electrons to satisfy the needs of the free radicals. Once the free radical has bonded to the antioxidant, it cannot be un-bonded therefore it cannot act upon other atoms and damage other cells in the body. The antioxidant basically disarms the free radical by becoming a part of it. A true hero.

Now that we understand how free radicals work, we can understand how they can affect other cells in the body such as skin cells (wrinkling/aging), nerve cells (neurological conditions), heart cells, lung cells, etc...Free radicals are literally the cause for aging in humans. TAD 600 (Injectable Glutathione) is a powerful antioxidant that will fight off these free radicals to protect from aging and cell & organ damage.
I'd be willing to bet that if you supplemented with TAD 600 regularly starting early in life you would see a significant increase in your lifespan.....unless you get hit by a bus or something.
