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 attacks.

Antioxidants come to the rescue and usher out those free radicals, heavy metals and toxins. The liver's ability to generate or regenerate glutathione and enable cells to contain glutathione within them as intracellular glutathione is why it's called the master antioxidant.

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.

As the active glutathione drops below 90% and allows the inactive to increase beyond 10%, the struggle for optimum health becomes a losing battle. It becomes too difficult to remove toxins naturally.

When toxins build up, the active glutathione diminishes even more. Active glutathione is also known as GSH, while inactive glutathione is known as GSSG. When GSH falls below 70%, darkness descends on one's immune system.

And wouldn't you know it, as we age, our ability to convert GSSG into GSH diminishes also. Many consider aging diseases to be caused by this impairment, confirming the belief that maintaining high GSH levels is a key to anti-aging, specifically reducing ailments considered part of aging and maintaining adequate energy levels.

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

There are sulfur rich foods and some supplements such as NAC (N-acetylcysteine) and premium whey products or colostrum that offer precursors to help your liver produce glutathione. The reason for using precursors to boost your liver's ability to create that 90 to 10 percent GSH to GSSG ratio is because GSH has issues with getting through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract intact and without being degraded.

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.

About the Author:

Paul Fassa started looking into natural health to overcome his unhealthy lifestyle. Then he developed more interest as he researched his articles for Natural News and Align Life.

He is amazed at the ignorance of natural medicine and how beneficial foods and herbs are constantly ignored or vilified in order to promote toxic foods and meds by Big Pharma, the FDA, USDA, and the AMA, what he likes to call the "Medical Mafia".
