Glutathione is the most powerful, prevalent antioxidant in your body? Increasing your glutathione level will naturally increase your energy, detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system. WOW! Who out there reading this doesn’t need to increase your energy. I think every mom I know could use a little more of this… and without the diet soda. Also I find a lot of women I know suffer with PCOS, which can zap your energy, and even more… make it had to even reduce those dreaded fat deposits. A recent study they found that women that struggle with weight loss for a variety of reasons showed a significant decrease in GSH (Glutathione) level, a significant increase in DNA strand breakage and H2O2-induced DNA damage. That means a susceptibility to ovarian cancer. As well glutahtione support diet change, sleep, exercise and mommy stress reduction. Yes… stress reduction!! So I’m just going to recommend if you are a mom, looking to change your health, or if you have struggled to lose weight, take a look at how you can improve your glutathione levels.
In the studies I’ve viewed they found that for best results they recommend you also supplement with N-Acetyl Cysteine to help the body absorb the glutathione, as well as to support it in leveling off the insulin condition. What is NAC? Well cysteine is found in beta-keratin, the main protein in nails, skin and hair. It helps maintain a healthy, youthful appearance by encouraging collagen production and skin elasticity. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a form of the amino acid cysteine that is most easily absorbed from supplements, and in fact some of the studies looking into this supplement have made it an obviously “NO” to add in as far as I’m concerned. Sulfer rich foods contain all of the natural NAC that you need, and so the easiest way for me to get enough has been with the making sure I get the best quality and potency of my fruits and vegetables rather than using some of those NAC supplements. Glutathione levels vary widely among fruits and vegetables due to environmental factors and the plant’s phase of development, and so it’s important you know where your food is coming from. And following the plant based proteins again to support this I think of green as a precursor of the strong detoxifier, glutathione. Ta-da!! Amazing isn’t it! Nature is amazing!
What is everyone else … saying about Glutathione
“GSH (Glutathione) is the unsung antioxidant…the one that makes all the others work.” ~Robert C. Atkins, MD
“Glutathione circulates constantly throughout your body neutralizing free radicals and removing dangerous waste products and toxins from your system while increasing your level of energy. When your Glutathione level is high, your overall health is high. You feel good and you look good. You fight off minor illnesses quickly, you have plenty of energy, and you feel mentally and physically alert… you’re at an optimal level of good health.” ~Alan Pressman, DC, Phd, CCN
“Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect your body against disease.” Breakthrough In Cell-Defense By: Dr. Allan Somersall, Ph.D., M.D. with Dr. Gustavo Bounous, M.D. FRCS(C)
“Glutathione promotes longevity, protects the body against heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and boosts the immune system strength and is useful fighting autoimmune diseases and other health problems of older adults.”GSH Your Body’s Most Powerful Protector GLUTATHIONE, Third Edition By: Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP
“Your life depends on glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins.”
“Glutathione levels also diminsh as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency.”
“Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases.”
“Because all other antioxidants depend upon the presence of glutathione to function properly, scientists call it ‘the master antioxidant’.” From booklet: “Glutathione: Essential Health AID – Antioxidant. Immune Booster. Detoxifier” By: Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP
“Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties – if you raise the glutathione level you can stop the replication of most any…intracellular pathogen…but glutathione deficiency produces a pro-viral effect.” Paul Cheney, MD
