What is L-Glutathione and Why You Need More

  What is L-Glutathione and Why You Need More.  “The antioxidant benefits of Glutathione are extraordinary, this is why it has earned the title of the body’s “Master Antioxidant”. Found in every cell, Glutathione scours our body for toxins, free radicals and heavy metals that pose a threat to our health and well-being. Acting like a magnet, it gathers up all of these harmful substances and expels them from the body.”  I have written dozens of articles emphasizing the countless health benefits of glutathione (GSH) and here is another to add to the list. The importance of supplementing GSH levels Read More

Glutathione – Antioxidant

Glutathione – Antioxidant To understand the important role which the super antioxidant glutathione plays in preserving life (in the most literal sense) one needs a basic understanding of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that steal an electron from more stable ones, and by doing so they damage enzymes, unsaturated fats in cell membranes (omega 3 and 6 go rancid), and can even damage DNA. Such oxidative damage triggers inflammation, and when the inflammation gets out of control we develop serious diseases, including obesity, heart disease or cancer. Glutathione and Free Radicals Oxygen is the most common free radical, Read More

Disease aside, it’s a ticket to better health and longevity.” Vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other antioxidants are on everyone’s radar, so it’s ironic that we don’t hear much about glutathione. After all, it’s the body’s premiere antioxidant—and much, much more. That’s probably because you can’t go to your health food store and buy glutathione in a bottle. Well, you can, but I don’t recommend it. Because it’s poorly absorbed, most Read More
