Everything You Need to Know about Glutone 1000 and Glutathione

Everything You Wanted to Know about Glutone 1000

So yesterday, while surfing the internet, I came across a new name i.e. Glutone 1000. Honestly, I had no clue about it. But, after surfing more than a while, I came to an understanding that this has become a new obsession for many people.

The claim is that if these tablets are taken as per the instructions, then your complexion would become one or two shades lighter.

Is it true? Well! That’s indeed hard to tell. In fact, before and after pictures are not sufficient even; Photoshop is always there to make up such things. Moreover, these tablets might have their own side-effects.

Now, the thing is I have my own past with fairness obsession and I would definitely like to share that later on. But, before that, let’s talk about everything you need to know about these Glutone 1000 tablets.

Basic Information about Glutone 1000

Glutone 1000 for Skin Lightening

Glutone 1000 is basically Glutathione tablets that are marketed by Adroit Biomed. As of now, every packet contains 15 effervescent tablets.

Effervescent tablets create a fizzy or bubble effect. Each tablet comprises L-Glutathione, Vitamin C, and N-Acetylcysteine. Let’s talk about the benefits of Glutathione and the other components of Glutone 1000 in brief.

Well! I must admit that this whole article is full of medical jargons, but I have tried to make it as easy to comprehend as possible. 


According to ScienceDirect, Glutathione is quite a potent anti-oxidant. It is formed with three Amino Acids namely Cysteine, Glycine, and Glutamate. This component is highly found in mammalian cells.

But, with ageing, these enzymes that are derived from cells are decreased. And, as a result, aged people often experience loss in vision or Macular Degeneration.

In fact, if this component is less-synthesized, then it can create an obstruction for other cellular functions too.

And thus, extra supplements are needed. So, L-Glutathione in Glutone 100 tablets fulfil the requirement of the naturally occurred anti-oxidant in the body.

Vitamin C

Components of Glutone 1000

This is another component of Glutone 1000 tablets. Vitamin C is not only a great anti-oxidant but also works as an agent in the formula.

It helps the Glutathione to get absorbed faster. It also helps to boost the immunity system and enhances collagen synthesis. Overall, Vitamin C here works in synchronous with L-Glutathione.


This is a semi-essential component as our body can generate this from Amino Acids. But, if its intake becomes low, then it becomes an essential element.

Generally, in high protein foods, this component is available in ample amount. N-Acetylcysteine or NAC helps in replenishing the level of Glutathione in the body. Apart from that, it also helps to reduce free-radicals just like any other anti-ageing element.

So, with all of these three components, one tablet of Glutone 1000 is made.


Taking one tablet daily in the morning is a good recommendation. But, it is always better to consult with healthcare professionals before consumption.

How to Intake

  • Take a tablet and mix with a glass of water
  • The effervescent tablet would completely dissolve into the water
  • Drink that fizzy water like a health drink
  • Make sure you have closed the tablet container tightly otherwise the tablets would become contaminated.

Does Glutone 1000 Lighten Skin Permanently?

Does Glutone 1000 Lighten Skin Tone
Well! At this juncture of popularity, I guess this is a million-dollar question. Before we proceed straight to the answer, it is much important to understand how our skin melanin and anti-oxidants work.

So, Melanin is basically a polymer and it is responsible for our skin complexion. If the proportion of Melanin becomes high, then our skin becomes hyperpigmented and vice versa.

Generally, when our skin comes to the contact of the UV rays of sunlight, skin becomes hyperpigmented. UV radiations increase the Oxygen and Nitrogen levels in the cells. So, anti-oxidants must be applied topically or must be taken orally to suppress these reactive radicals.

What Does Study Say?

According to a study, the skin lightening effect of Glutathione was discovered accidentally. Basically, due to a large dosage of Glutathione, this de-pigmentation effect came onto the surface.

There is no doubt that Glutathione (or Glutone 1000) is an excellent anti-oxidant. But, there is such documentation to prove its skin lightening effect or de-pigmentation capability.

Logically, the Glutone 1000 supplement must help to improve brown patches or Melasma in human skin. US Food and Drug Administration is yet to give a green signal to use Glutathione to treat Melasma, Freckles, Hyperpigmentation, etc.

As per a study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology, the effect of Glutathione can be observed on new cases of pigmentation only, not on already existing pigmentation.

What Else Glutathione Offer? Health Benefits

Well! It is true that these days, Glutathione is being framed with skin lightening only. But, this anti-oxidant has much more to offer. Check out the following health benefits associated with Glutathione.

Helps with Psoriasis

If Glutathione is taken orally, it helps to improve psoriasis. In a study, (where Whey Protein was used as the source of Glutathione) it was shown that the oral consumption of Glutathione along with other treatments help to improve psoriasis. Although, more research is required in this domain.

Reduces the Risk of Fatty Liver Disease

Whether you drink alcohol or not, liver cells might die if there is a deficiency of antioxidants like Glutathione.  As a result, the fatty liver disease might appear.

The solution is to intake Glutathione externally. It has been seen in a study that patients who intake Glutathione in high dosage, they are less prone to fatty liver disease. A perfect lifestyle along with a supplement of Glutathione is going to make your liver healthy for sure.

Directly Connected with Weight Loss

People with a lower level of Glutathione show less tendency for fat burning. Percentage of fat storage becomes high with those people. So, if a person takes food loaded with Glutathione, it helps a lot with weight loss.

In fact, Glutathione helps with autoimmune disease and also reduces oxidative damage. High Blood Sugar is often associated with a lower level of Glutathione.

If blood sugar is not controlled, it can lead to damage of tissues. So, if the diet chart of the patient includes Glutathione in sufficient quantity, then it can control diabetes to some extent. Respiratory tract disease can be controlled too with this anti-oxidant.

Does Glutone 1000 Consumption Have Any Possible Side Effect?

Has Glutathione Any Side Effect

According to WebMD, here is a list of side effects and risks associated with the consumption of Glutathione. Take a look.

  • If Glutathione is taken for a long time, Zinc deficiency can be observed. In fact, if people with Asthma inhale Glutathione, it can trigger Asthma attacks in them.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then it is better not to intake Glutone 1000.

Well! Supplements are usually considered as foods. So, these are not well-regulated. Without supervision or expert approval, it is hard to tell which supplement is good or which isn’t.

Is Glutathione Found Naturally in Foods? 

Well! I think because of all these factors, it is pretty risky taking a Glutathione supplement.

Rather, it is much fruitful to intake foods that are naturally loaded with Glutathione, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. In fact, foods that are loaded with Amino Acids can do the same wonder. Start taking these to boost your immunity.

Foods that Contain Glutathione

  • Meat that is not processed or preserved chemically
  • Broccoli
  • Eggs
  • Nuts like Pelicans, Almonds, etc.
  • Asparagus
  • Avocado
  • Garlic
  • Spinach

Let us know in the comment section below about the food that is already in your diet chart.

Final Thoughts

So, it is evident that the supplement of Glutone 1000 has no connection with skin lightening. At least there is no such proof or study that can corroborate this fact.

And thus, this whole skin lightening or depigmentation thing seems like nothing but a huge marketing trick. It is a hoax that has been widely spread out by the cosmetic companies.

On the other hand, there is no doubt that Glutathione is pretty useful as a supplement. It is full of health benefits. At least, there is no doubt that it is a great anti-oxidant.

So, if you want to include Glutone 1000 in your dietary supplement, you can definitely do that. Just make sure that you have undertaken supervision from an expert. The skin lightening might be a gimmick but there is no doubt that Glutathione is an excellent anti-oxidant.
