Glutathione is Essential: Here is How to Enhance Your Master Antioxidant
by Paul Fassa
(The Best Years in Life)
Glutathione is called the master
antioxidant because it can regenerate
itself in the liver after each fill-up
of free radicals and go back to work.
Free radicals are often the byproduct of
normal cellular metabolic oxidation and
toxic overload, leading to autoimmune
diseases, several cancers, even heart
This process is analogous to a car's electrical system. When the battery gets low, the alternator, aka generator, recharges it. But when the alternator goes south, the battery will soon dry out and you're stalled. The liver is your body's alternator for glutathione.
According to Dr. Mark Hymann: Glutathione is critical for one simple reason: It recycles antioxidants. (...) After this happens, the body can “reduce” or regenerate another protective glutathione molecule and we are back in business. However, problems occur when we are overwhelmed with too much oxidative stress or too many toxins. (Emphasis added)
Then the glutathione becomes depleted and we can no longer protect ourselves against free radicals, infections, or cancer and we can’t get rid of toxins. This leads to further sickness and soon we are in the downward spiral of chronic illness.
The Glutathione Regeneration Process
Glutathione becomes inactive when it
becomes saturated from doing its work of collecting free radicals, but it tends
to regenerate itself in a healthy liver. Under ideal conditions, 10% of the
glutathione remains inactive, or oxidized, while the other 90% is active, or
reduced, and continues to balance cell molecules and other antioxidants, as well
as remove toxins.
If you are sickly, suffering from chronic autoimmune diseases, or just not in peak shape, you probably have a GHS deficiency. The Lancet, a top British medical journal, found the highest glutathione levels in healthy young people, lower levels in healthy elderly, lower still in sick elderly and the lowest of all in the hospitalized elderly. So there's the anti-aging quality of glutathione.

Beefing Up Your GHS Generator
The homeostatic glutathione reduction cycle attempts to keep GSH repleted as it is being consumed by free radicals and other toxins. Precursors to glutathione available from foods and supplements are limited, so free radicals and toxins can outpace GHS synthesis in our toxic environments. Even worse, there are many who lack some or all of the genes that create GHS. They tend to suffer from chronic diseases or among the most sickly among us.
Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) For Optimum GHS Absorption
Glutathione is one of those compounds that has a hard time getting through the stomach and GI (gastrointestinal) without becoming degraded. That's why supplementing with precursors for glutathione liver production has been advised.
But now there is liposomal encapsulation technology (LET). It was initially developed to permit oral vitamin C's replication of mega-dose IV vitamin C's clinical success for many diseases. And LET oral vitamin C has done that.
Amazingly, liposomal encapsulated vitamin C matches or exceeds intravenous C's efficacy with even smaller doses. LET enables whatever molecules are encapsulated in tiny lipids (fats) to slip through the stomach intact and uncorrupted then into the small intestines for blood absorption and beyond. From the blood, those tiny lipids are able to slip through our bodies' cell wall and directly deliver the vital molecules encapsulated.
And now LET is being used with glutathione for the specific purpose of allowing glutathione to slip through your GI tract and into your cells intact. This boosts your protective glutathione levels without taxing your liver. Then your liver gets a break enough to hopefully rebuild itself, which it can do by the way if not too far gone.
This site offers the most powerful liposomal encapsulated glutathione product, Aurora Mega-Liposomal Glutathione.
