Better question is why spend money and time on taking glutathione, as it does NOT cross the brain-blood barrier and would have no utility or benefit outside the central nervous system.

Why take it? Likely expensive and no proven value systemically. Glutathione is the main free radical scavenger of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, but oral glutathione does NOT CROSS THE BRAIN-BLOOD BARRIER.
