L-Glutathione is used as a Acts as hydrogen acceptor in enzymatic determination of NADP and NADPH, it is used to reduced back to glutathione (GSH) via the NADPH-dependent enzyme glutathione reductase. The ratio of GSH to GSSG is often used to gauge the level of oxidative stress in cells, with higher concentrations of GSSG implying more oxidative stress
