Reduced glutathione (GSH), commonly referred to as simply glutathione is found in the cytosol of almost every cell in the body. A master antioxidant, glutathione protects against cell damage.

In parts 1 and 2 of this thyroid series, we’ve seen that the thyroid gland is often touted as the most important hormonal gland because thyroid hormone affects literally every cell in the human body.
