Glutathione: Benefits Of The Mother Of All Antioxidants
Glutathione (pronounced gloota-thigh-own) is commonly referred to as the “mother of all antioxidants”.
Nearly 117,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles have addressed this powerhouse molecule and experts now agree that many people, particularly over the age of 30, are deficient. This is mostly because of poor diet, oxidative stress, genetically modified food, artificial sweeteners, chronic stress, premature aging, disease, injuries, environmental toxins, and overuse of antibiotics, to name a few.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a peptide consisting of three amino acids which plays several vital roles in the body. It’s a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. In short, it’s regarded as a very simple molecule and one that’s produced naturally all the time in your body. According to Gustavo Bounous, MD retired professor of surgery at McGill University in Montreal, “It’s the body’s most important antioxidant because it’s within the cell.”
Glutathione is crucial for helping your immune system fight chronic illness, as it carries toxins out of your body. Like a fly trap, toxins stick to glutathione and they are carried to the bile into the stools and out of the body. Today, you can find a liposomal glutathione to take orally, or your local IV place and receive this master antioxidant through an intravenous administration. You can also eat glutathione-rich foods such as ones high in sulfur, including garlic, onions, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, and the like.
