Glutathione is the mother of antioxidants, known as the master antioxidant.
The body’s supply of Glutathione is rapidly consumed daily.
Glutathione's basic properties:
- Strengthens Immune system
- Detoxifies the liver and cells,
- Increases energy via repair of mitochondria
- Slows down the ageing process
- Reduces effects of Stress
- Improves skin
- Reduces muscle and joint discomfort
- Athletic performance
Can I just take Glutathione?
Taking Glutathione orally is a waste of money as the body digests it.
Talking Glutathione Intravenously works, but has a short half-life, meaning there would be a need to be hooked up to a drip to get long-term benefits.
Glutathione is made from genetically modified bacteria
What is needed to help our bodies make Glutathione?
The body needs the Glutathione precursors so that it can make its Glutathione where and when it needs it.
The three amino acid precursors needed by the body to make Glutathione are:
1 - Glutamate
2 - Glycine
3 - Cysteine
Glutamate is found in all meats, poultry, fish, eggs, unpasteurized dairy products and protein-rich plants.
Glycine is abundant in high-protein foods like fish, meat, beans, nuts and dairy products.
Cysteine is present in high-protein foods such as meats, poultry, dairy, eggs, quinoa and buckwheat.
Small amounts of cysteine can be found in other plant sources: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, red and yellow bell peppers, onions and garlic.
However, cysteine is easily destroyed by heat, mechanical stress and cooking.
To absorb it meats, eggs and vegetables need to be eaten raw!
Is NAC the answer to get the missing Cysteine can I need?
Many think so, and NAC is the current buzzword.
NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) is a manmade form of cysteine derived from recycled human hair from the floors of barber shops of China.
NAC has its uses, such as in A&E (ER) for things like paracetamol overdose yet with constant use it can become toxic having the opposite effect than intended, often putting strain on the liver.
Luckily there is way to obtain highly bioavailable cysteine naturally.
For more details on the above, you can listen to the NOTB interview with world-leading glutathione expert Dr Jimmy Gutman.
