What is Glutathione?

You Need To Know Glutathione
Glutathione (pronounced gloot ah thigh on) is a small molecule that is produced by the body and found in every cell. You need to know about glutathione for three reasons.
It is the body's keystone antioxidant, it is critical for helping the body remove toxins of all kinds and is a key regulator of the autoimmune response. Blood levels of glutathione are considered to be the most reliable single indicator of the health longevity prospects of each person. Low levels of glutathione will mean a decreased ability to remove undesired chemicals from the cell increasing probability of diseases such as cancer, heart disease and other degenerative diseases. Antioxidants are critical for good health because they neutralize free radicals, which can build up in cells and cause damage.
Helps Activate Other Anti-oxidants
Glutathione not only helps neutralize the cell-damaging free radicals but also helps activate other anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
The Severely Ill Are Almost Always Depleted in Glutathione
Evidence for the important role that glutathione plays in health comes from studies in people who are severely ill. People who have cancer, AIDS, or other very serious disease, almost invariably are depleted in glutathione. We know that glutathione is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health. Studies have also shown that physiological damage from heavy metals doesn't begin until glutathione levels are depleted.
How To Increase Your Glutathione Levels
Glutathione cannot be supplemented by just taking some in a capsule. It is made of three amino acids so is quickly broken down by the digestive system. One way around that is intravenous glutathione treatments. This is not a good approach for most people because of its cost and inconvenience. We are always looking for convenient, effective and economical approaches. We recommend using LifeWave Glutathione Patches and Apex Energetics Glutathione Recycler. LifeWave patches are ingenious because they gently stimulate your body's own production of glutathione. The LifeWave protocol calls for one Glutathione Patch a couple of inches below the belly button a few days per week. Each band-aid type energetic patch lasts about 24 hours.
Also effective is NAC or N-acetyl cysteine with ALA or alpha lipoic acid. The combination of these two supplements has been shown to increase glutathione blood levels.
Personally, I use both approaches, that is the Glutathione Patches and NAC plus ALA. It is so important that I use the belt and suspenders approach.
Some Study Results
Animal and laboratory studies have demonstrated that glutathione has the potential to fight almost any disease, particularly those associated with aging, since free radical damage is the cause of many of the diseases of old age. Many very strong arguments exist in favor of a therapeutic use of glutathione. One study involved women with ovarian cancer who were being treated with chemotherapy. Some of the women were also treated with intravenous glutathione. Those given the glutathione not only had fewer side effects from the chemotherapy but also had better overall survival rates. Glutathione and other antioxidants, far from interfering with the activity of chemotherapy, appear to reduce side effects without decreasing efficacy and may, in fact, improve the efficacy of the chemotherapy in fighting cancer." Glutathione therapy has been shown to actually lower glutathione in cancer cells while increasing it in normal cells. As a result, the cancer cells are more vulnerable to chemotherapy, and the normal cells are protected.
