Its a Mouthful: Non‐Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Glutathione

Glutathione (GSH) is a major endogenous antioxidant that can neutralize reactive oxygen species (ROS). The rate limiting amino acid in de novo synthesis of GSH in metabolic disease appears to be glycine. People withmetabolic liver disease many have increased GSH needs. Vegetarians have a higher intake of non-essential amino acids including glycine and serine.
