Key points

Glutathione is made inside the cells.  The problem is getting sufficient quantities of glutathione precursors and co-factors—the building blocks—of glutathione to the cells, so they can manufacture their own.

Making glutathione is a high priority for cells, because they really need it to remain healthy, so given the proper precursors, they readily make it.  The problem typically is getting the glutathione precursors where they need to be.

Bioactive whey protein powder extracted from milk is by far the best, most bioavailable source of the most important, rate-limiting  glutathione precursor, cystine

When deciding which whey protein product to buy, look for the phrases "Undenatured Whey Protein Isolate"

Unfortunately, you can’t just drink a glass of milk to get cystine…

…ensure you are buying a product that is bioactive, labeled as undenatured. In other words, provides a rich source of bioavailable cysteine.

Undenatured whey protein is made with intent, and is a more expensive process, so undenatured whey protein supplements will be significantly more expensive than their cheaper denatured ‘junk’ whey protein.
