Daily we are attacked by enemy insurgents. The intercellular glutathione body detoxification is one of the body's most important defense system. Unfortunately few even know of it.
Scientific studies have shown & proven that glutathione (GSH) has multiple detoxification functions. Depletion of glutathione is associated with increased risk of chemical toxicity.
What are Toxins is a brief look at the definition. Also, what are toxicants?
We also know that glutathione can be depleted from doing its job, from some medicaitons and agents, and lack of intake of the essential building blocks and co-factors.
Age,race,gender and diet are all factors in the GSH levels in the body.
Currently Tylenol toxicity is treated by boosting glutathione levels in the body with the drug NAC. Scientist now believe that boosting glutathione levels will also be the treatment of choice for detoxifying carbon monoxide poisoning, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform and other types of poisonous compounds, chemical and gasses.
First and Foremost
The most important health and wellness self promotion
step we can take is avoidance of those things that are
harmful to the body.
This includes cigarette smoke,tobacco products,house hold cleaners and detergents, dry-cleaned clothes, new carpeting, some plastic food containers, and furniture to name a few within our homes. Outside would include pesticides and fertilizers for our flowers and grass, smog, parking garage and even the corner of a busy street. The stopping of care releases high amounts of asbestos in the air which you breathe.
It only gets worse in the office. There are copier fluids and other chemicals in the furniture and carpeting to name a few.
The reality is impossible in the world we live and spen every day. This means to have optimal health we need to employ other means of protection.
How does Glutathione body detoxification protect us from the various toxins?
There is no simple answer.
Basically it protects us in two ways. One, it detoxifies or helps remove toxins when they enter the body and subsequently the individual cells in the organs. So after the attack it goes to work removing the toxins.
When a person overdoses on Tylenol, in the hospital ED or ER Doctor will administer NAC, a drug that promotes the production of Glutathione.
Secondly Glutathione body detoxification acts to protect the cell from the invading toxins. So rather than waiting till your sick, this is in effect preventative medicine (in the metaphorical sense). This is providing the body with the resources it needs to fight the enemy toxin insurgents.
With some of the wonderful things we are learning about, this must be considered. The Science community are embrassing this more & more everyday.
