An antioxidant that the brain loses as it gets older

Postby snehajainms » Jun 13 2017 2:55 am

What is the name of the antioxidant that the brain loses as it gets older? There was a clinical trial being done to prevent the progression of Alzheimer's and they were using high levels of B 12 and fish oil plus an antioxidant but I do not know the university doing the trial.

I think it is glutathione. But since glutathione is destroyed when taken orally, they use N-acetyl cysteine, which is a precursor for glutathione synthesis.
