Glutathione competitively inhibits melanin synthesis in the reaction of tyrosinase and L-DOPA by interrupting L-DOPA’s ability to bind to tyrosinase during melanin synthesis. These results indicate that glutathione inhibits the synthesis and agglutination of melanin by interrupting the function of L-DOPA.
Glutathione and l-glutathione is a natural molecule found in our bodies and synthesized by the liver. It’s found in some of the foods we eat and it’s actually in every cell of our skin. Recent scientific research has shown that the level of glutathione in your cells has a direct impact on and is an important indicator of the health and appearance of your skin.
