If you’ve heard of glutathione, chances are you know it as a “miracle drug” for whitening. After all, the substance is typically marketed as an anti-melanogenic, which is just a fancy way of saying it’s supposed to lighten skin.
Before anything else, no, this isn’t about to be that kind of story. As you probably already know, BeautyMNL is a very morena-friendly platform, so we’re not here to tell any morenas to change their skin color for anything.

So what are we doing playing around with glutathione, you ask? Turns out, it’s a powerful antioxidant that boasts a whole host of health benefits, too. Of course we had to see for ourselves what else it can do!


Fun fact: glutathione actually occurs naturally in the body. Your liver makes it, which means you just have a steady supply of antioxidants at all times. Antioxidants exist to prevent cell damage, which can lead to premature aging and various health issues.

Studies show that, as with other antioxidants, you can improve your glutathione levels with supplements. Most people tend to take them for skin reasons, as they’re believed to lighten your complexion—or at the very least, give it a healthy dose of brightness. Antioxidants are thought to reduce inflammation and treat acne, which is why vitamin C serums are Holy Grail status in a lot of skincare routines.

Angie was curious enough to see if she could reap the benefits, so we gave her a bottle of the Belo Nutraceuticals Glutathione + Collagen capsules to experiment with. It even comes with a side of collagen, another bonafide glow-booster. Scroll for one morena’s “gluta” experience!


1. They moisturized her skin from the inside. Angie has combination skin, so she tends to get dry patches around her face. When she introduced the Belo capsules into her routine, she noticed that her skin was a lot plumper and felt more hydrated than before.
2. They kept her complexion clear and smooth. Like many people, Angie breaks out when she’s stressed. The last week was a particularly busy one for her, but she shares that her skin didn’t reflect it at all. What’s more, the capsules appear to have improved her overall skin health and given her a subtle glow.
3. They improved her energy levels. An avid coffee drinker, Angie averages 2 cups every work day. When she started her trial period, she noticed that the capsules with the coffee gave her more of an energy boost than when she only consumes coffee.


“At first, I was a bit hesitant to try gluta pills knowing that a lot of people take it for its whitening effects. I certainly don’t want that for myself (#morenalove all the way, baby)! But I was pleasantly impressed with the effects it had on my skin. Even if I wasn’t getting my full 8 hours of sleep every night, my skin looked like it did. I didn’t change my skincare routine at all, so I know the effects were coming from the gluta pills!” —Angie, 26
