Welcome to my page about an extremely important antioxidant everyone should be aware of Glutathione!
What is Glutathione
Before I get into how glutathione benefits our health, lets discuss a bit about this nutrient for those not familiar.
Glutathione is probably the most important nutrient which is why it is unfortunate so many haven’t heard about it.
Did you know, the human body contains trillions of cells? Your vitality is a reflection of your cellular health. Our body creates about 40 Billion new cells every day and every single one need glutathione.
Tripeptide, which means it is a molecule consisting of three amino acids. It functions as our body’s primary antioxidant and detoxifier.
Glutathione, also very important in maintaining a proper immune function, in synthesizing and repairing DNA, while also helping to prevent diseases and premature aging. The truth is, without this nutrient our cells would die and so would everyone!
One other important thing to mention about this important nutrient, unlike most antioxidants which we obtain through a well balance diet, glutathione is produced by our body from the amino acids, glutamate, glycine, and cysteine. Meaning it is produced naturally within our body.
Glutathione is also the world’s most powerful antioxidant often referred to as “The Master Antioxidant”. The main reason is because it recycles other antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, CoQ10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
The Health Benefits of Glutathione
In this section I will talk about the benefits but first what factors affect our levels of glutathione?
There are many factors which play a big part in the reduction of our glutathione within our body, especially after the age of 30 when our glutathione levels start to noticeably decline. Toxins like air pollution, cigarette smoke, household products, just to name a couple, also play a part in the reduction of our glutathione levels. Eating a poor diet will also affect your level of glutathione. We can actually naturally help raise our levels of glutathione just by the food everyone eat.
Stress is another huge factor as excessive stress can drastically affect our levels. Those who regularly consume alcohol, drugs(prescription also), or refined sugar, and smoke also have an increased need for nutrient.
Glutathione protects against oxidative stress, free radicals and inflammation often created by the above factors.
In many cases, those suffering with lack of energy could be due to low glutathione because it helps to maintain energy production. A major factor to maximizing our health is, our immune system. Glutathione has been proven to help strengthen our immune system.
Our body’s most efficient detoxifier, as it detoxifies toxins in our liver and our cells. It has also been proven to help improve mental focus and clarity.
Another benefits are, it can help improve the quality of our sleep and reduce the affect of stress on our health.
It also has proven to improve the appearance of our skin.
To those athletics, glutathione is capable of enhancing athletic performance.
This very important antioxidant is needed to stay healthy and prevent aging, cancer, heart
disease and dementia. Also, needed to treat everything from autism
to Alzheimer’s disease.
Before I move on to ‘how everyone can increase our levels of glutathione, I want to mention there have been over 132,000 studies done on glutathione.
How to Increase Glutathione Levels?
Since reading the above the all important question would be, how can everyone increase our glutathione since there are many factors of life that result in reducing our glutathione?
We could do a quick search online and we’d find many products claiming to raise glutathione levels. The question would be, which products work and which products are a waste of money?
The truth is, while going out and buying a product containing glutathione might sound like the right idea, this will not help raise your level of glutathione. Many fresh fruits, vegetables and meat products contains a large amount of glutathione but the quality of fresh fruits, vegetables and meat products consume today doesn’t compare to the quality consumed many years ago.
Another problem is, it breaks down in the stomach, and does not make it intact to the cells where it is needed. Also, the molecule is too large to pass through the cellular membrane, so even if you could get the glutathione molecules to the cells, you couldn’t get it inside the cells.
So the real challenge is, what do you do?
It is important to get sufficient amount of glutathione precursors and co-factors (the building blocks) to the cells, so they’re able to manufacture their own. This process is extremely important for our cells, because they really need to remain healthy, so given the proper precursors, they readily make it. This challenge is getting the precursors where they need to be.
A company I have teamed up with, Max International (The Glutathione Company), has products that have proven to increase glutathione levels by more than 300 percent than the next best option available.
I will talk more about Max International, the science behind their products and their products further down but right now I would like to focus on Diseases associated with Low Glutathione.
Diseases Associated with Low Glutathione
There are over 74 diseases and health challenges associated with low glutathione.
Here is a list of some of those diseases:
- Obesity – a very common problem in the world today
- Inflammation – far too many people in the world are suffering from this
- Heart Attack (Heart Disease) – again, any huge issue in the world with far too many people
- Asthma – another common issue with so many people
- Alzheimer’s – very common with many people as they become older
- Parkinson’s – a disease suffered by many in the world today
- ADHD – this disease is often suffered by people starting at a younger age but is also common in adults
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Depression – continues to become a bigger issue
- HIV – another disease that is common
- Cancer – pretty much every kind of cancer is related
- Fibromyalgia –
- Acne – very common in the world but who whatever think it is related
- Psoriasis – another disease many suffer with
Further to my above list:
The next couple of sections I will go into more depth regarding a couple of diseases and their association with glutathione..
Glutathione and Anti-Aging Process
This amazing antioxidant could be referred to as “The Master Anti-Aging Antioxidant” is extremely important to our aging process.
As we age the production of glutathione will start to decline and this can speed up our aging process. This is caused by increased oxidative stress and free radicals. By helping our body produce more glutathione we can help eliminate oxidative stress and free radicals from every cell of our body.
Other aging benefits related to increased glutathione are:
- our body’s most efficient detoxifier helping to keep the cells of our body healthy
- can help reduce acne
- capable of fighting against aging lines and wrinkles
- able to lighten dark circles under eyes
- and capable of providing us with brighter and healthier looking skin
Next, everyone will look at how glutathione benefits heart disease and cancer.
The Benefits of Glutathione – Heart Disease and Cancer
Stats on Heart Disease:
Over 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States yearly. The most common type of heart disease is Coronary heart disease, killing over 350,000 people per year.
In Canada heart disease is the 2nd leading cause of death.
The question is, what is the connection between heart disease and glutathione?
As previously mentioned, glutathione helps eliminate oxidative stress and free radicals. There is a very strong connection between oxidative stress damage and heart disease. In many cases, if you have heart disease you probably have low levels of glutathione.
Increasing your levels of glutathione can help heart disease with:
- lower your blood pressure
- reduce your risk of a heart attack
- strengthen your immune system
- protect your cells against free radicals
- decrease inflammation within your body
What is the connection between cancer and glutathione?
Personally, I strongly believe there are many natural ways everyone can help prevent cancer and fight against cancer. The question is, what role does glutathione play?
We know glutathione is a detoxifier and helps eliminate toxins and free radicals from our cells. This helps protect our cells from cancer mutation. Also, in almost every disease our best defense is a strong healthy immune system. By eliminating toxins and free radicals everyone are helping to create a stronger and healthier immune system helping to protect us from cancer.
There have also been many studies done on glutathione deficiency in healthy cells and the conclusion was, low levels of glutathione in these cells made them more at risk to cancer. It has also been proven that glutathione metabolism can play both a protective and pathogenic roles with respect to cancer.
Another role of this amazing nutrient is maintaining healthy cellular mitochondria. It is notable that damaged or malfunctioning cellular mitochondria are very involved in the cancer process. This process occurs when toxins and unhealthy cells come together to trigger a cellular defense response. During this process healthy cells become cancer cells when they change back to a primitive form of respiration that uses glucose (sugar) instead of oxygen for respiration. They then refuse to die and keeping multiplying.
It is also very important to mention that it has been proven that cancerous cells have been proven to thrive in a sugar environment but can’t survive in an oxygen environment.
