Glutathione for skin lightening

I have very bad uneven skin tone. I heard that glutathione is good for the skin and it will lighten the skin. Is this true, and where can I get it from?

Although some cosmetic studies have found that glutathione may be effective for this use, serious doubt exist if taking it orally will be effective - It also needs to be taken in very high doses if taken orally, and therefor using it topically, i.e. in a cream, is a better option.
