Our bodies are constantly bombarded with stress, harmful toxins, pollution, radiation, free radicals, and oxidative stress that wreak havoc by damaging our cells and tissues, interfering with cellular communication and increasing cellular inflammation. As the "Master Cell Protector," glutathione protects our cells from these damaging agents.
GLUTATHIONE'S BENEFITS ARE PROVEN
You may never have heard of glutathione, but for decades scientists have known about glutathione vital role in protecting our cells, tissues and organs. In fact, there are over 98,000 scientific studies and articles recorded on Pub Med, the official U.S. Government Library of Medical research, documenting the multifunctional roles glutathione provides to the body.
GLUTATHIIONE, THE CELL'S MASTER PROTECTOR
Glutathione is found and manufactured in every one of our trillion of cells with the highest concentration of glutathione found in our major organs such as the liver eye lens, brain and lungs. Because of it's multifunctinal role throughout the body, it's no wonder why glutathione has been called the "Cell's Master Protector".
~ Is Your Body Master Antioxidant
It is considered the master antioxidant due to its unique multifunctional characteristics as well as is unprecedented ability to neutralize many types of free radicals that assault the cell. It is the only antioxidant that canrecycle itself again and again to continually fighting free radicals.
~ IS THE PRIMARY DETOXIFIER OF THE CELL
Today we are confronted by over 80,000 chemicals in the air we breathe, the food and water we ingest, and the materials we touch and handle. Many of these toxic chemicals enter our cells and must be eliminated to protect the cell and maintain optimum function.
Glutathione is the cell's first line of defense against chemicals and toxins and the primary detoxifier that can eliminate many of these toxins when it is present in optimal amounts.
~ Is A Powerful Chelator of Heavy Metals
Heavy metals enter our cells in the same manner as chemical toxins. Fortunately, they can be removed from the cell by a process of chelation, and glutathione is one of the cell's most powerful chelating agents.
~ Is The Protector of the Immune Cell
Our immune cells are designed to protect us, but what protects the immune cell? Glutathione is the protector of the immune cell and allows newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attach gems and viruses.
~ Is The Protector of Mitochondrial DNA
The breakdown of the mitochondrail DNA accelerates aging and increases cell death. Glutathione is the protector of the Mitochondrial DNA, and the lower the glutathione level, the more vulnerable this DNA becomes to breakage.
~ Is The Protector of the Nucleus of the Cell
The nucleus of the cell regulates all cell activity and protecting it is critical to the health of the cell and its optimal function. When present in sufficient amounts, glutathione gives the nucleus the protection it needs.
~ Reduces Oxidative Stress
Oxidative Stress is the most aggressive destructive force that assaults the cell. Cell manufacture a number of antixidants to counter oxidative stress. Glutathione plays primary role in neutralizing many diferent type of free radicals and supporting our antioxidant defense system.
~ Reduces Intercellular Inflammation
Inflammation is the mortal enemy to the tissues, organs and various systems of the body. All inflammation begins at the cellular level, and low glutathione levels are associated with inflammation.
~ Is The Re-Utilizing Agent of Ingested Antioxidants
Antioxidants that are ingested that are (not manufactured by the body such as vitamin C and E), once spent, cannot be re-utilized by the cell unless they are first converted into a usable state. Glutathione is the agent that converts those antioxidants into a state that can be utilized by the cell.
~ Reducing Agent for Hemoglobin, Allowing it to Transport Oxygen to Every Cell
The purpose of hemoglobin is to carry oxgen to all living cells. However, when it is oxidized it cannot carry an oxygen molecule and must first be reduced to an acceptable state. Glutathione protects hemoglobin from oxidizing agents and can also reduce the oxidized form to make this possible.
GLUTATHIONE LEVELS DECLINE OVER TIME
Our bodies are continually subjected to extreme demands from work, stress and every day life, not to mention the harmful toxins pollution, radiation, free radicals that are constantly attacking our cells. All of these combined put a heavy toll onour glutathione demand. In the end, if there is not enough glutathione in our bodies, our cells, tissues, and organs pay the price.
