The “King of Anti-Oxidants”
Modern life — everything from refined foods to over-the-counter painkillers to stress — robs the body of this vital antioxidant. Also, even if you’re doing everything right, aging takes a bite. Around age 45, our glutathione levels start to slip. Ultimately, those levels can dip as much as 50% below optimal as we age.
Decreased Glutathione levels have been linked to a number of age-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s and macular degeneration. A 2004 study by the University of Alabama found that the red blood cells in male Alzheimer’s patients showed a significant lack of glutathione. A study of patients with heart disease found that the lower the levels of glutathione, the more likely they were to have a heart attack.
Unfortunately, oral supplementation of glutathione often does not work – it is degraded in the stomach and intestines by acid and enzymes. The only way significantly boost your levels is either though intramuscular or intravenous injection.
Benefits of Glutathione:
Detoxification including chemicals and heavy metals
Neutralizes Free Radicals
Strengthens the Immune System
Decreases recovery time after workouts or surgery
Protects against degenerative diseases
Improves mental function such as improved memory, focus, and concentration
Skin Lightening: Exposure to ultraviolet radiation and environmental toxins causes the production of free radicals. These free radicals cause DNA damage that contributes to the hyper-pigmentation and aging of skin cells. Glutathione very effectively neutralizes the free radicals and promotes cellular degeneration and DNA protection. Stressors and toxins deplete our natural glutathione levels making supplementation a necessity for optimal cellular health.
