Glutathione and the mechanism of skin pigmentation

Distributed in the pigment layer in the skin. Protect the skin from UV rays from the sun by absorbing UV rays and converting energy into heat. Melanin is produced From the amino acid named Tyrosine (Tyrosine), there are generally 2 types, namely Eumelanin and Pheomelanin by the amount of pigment distributed in the skin. There will be more or less a genetic trait where melanin is more common in dark skinned people. in which most live The equatorial region has a high UV intensity, while pheomelanin is found in whites who are exposed to UV radiation. Less than glutathione that enters the body will act to stimulate the amino acid tyrosine to transform into Pheomelanin in larger quantities, or it may be said in one word that glutathione will change the pigment eumelanin. to become phenomelanin which resulted in the exposure of with a lighter skin tone2
