What You Need to Know About Glutathione and Healthy Aging
Learn how one simple molecule helps protect against many chronic conditions.
Can you guess what people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, and liver disease almost always have in common?
The answer is: glutathione deficiency.
Glutathione is a simple molecule that plays a critical role in detoxification and immune function. In healthy individuals, glutathione attracts and traps free radicals, heavy metals, and other toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body, thus helping to prevent the inflammation that is behind so many chronic illnesses. Glutathione has also been shown to decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance, and help shift the metabolism from fat production to muscle development.
Why You Might Be Deficient in Glutathione
Normally, once a glutathione molecule has done its job, the body can regenerate another glutathione molecule to continue the detoxification process. However, when there are too many toxins, the body’s own natural glutathione production process simply can’t keep up. Many people are already at a disadvantage because they lack a critical gene related to glutathione creation and recycling, so their bodies are unable to compensate for the many factors that can deplete this vital molecule:
- Poor diet
Options for Boosting Glutathione
The good news is, there are ways to help restore healthy levels of glutathione and enjoy the many protective benefits of this molecule. For example you can:
Exercise: Even just 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise per day or 20 minutes of strength training 3 times per week can help boost your glutathione levels.
Change Your Diet: Folate, selenium, sulfur, and vitamins C, E, B6, and B12 are all important nutrients for supporting the body’s natural ability to produce and/or recycle glutathione. Try to stick to organic produce when adding these nutrients to your diet so that you don’t risk undermining your efforts to boost glutathione by introducing more toxins your body would need to fight.
Try Injectable Nutrients: You also have the option of getting pure, undiluted glutathione and supportive C, E & B vitamins through injectable nutrients. Just remember that injecting glutathione only raises glutathione in your blood serum, not in your brain or immune system.
