Glutathione Benefits

Glutathione has many benefits. It is often referred to as the “Master Anti-Oxidant” for its ability to stop, and even reverse, the damage caused by free radicals. Glutathione is primarily responsible for reducing the levels of cysteine on the surface of proteins and helps protect your body from free-radical damage. Glutathione also helps manufacture and repair DNA. Glutathione facilitates the recycling of Vitamins C and E. Glutathione impairs platinum buildup in your kidneys. It helps transport amino acids and plays a vital role in purging your body of toxic compounds such as heavy metals. By helping your body detox, glutathione helps reduce your risk of developing cancer. Glutathione is able to fight cancer by causing malignant cells to die but keeping healthy cells alive. This antioxidant slows your body’s aging process.

Glutathione Benefits Include:

  • Breaks down of oxidized fats and free radicals in the body, thus strengthening the body’s immune system and scavenging free radicals
  • Prevents or reverses acne, wrinkles, and crow’s feet via detoxification of the skin and body
  • Reverses and prevents atherosclerosis, congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, hypertension, high blood pressure (especially when combined with high quality sources of omega 3, such as flax, flax seeds, sprouted flax, and chia seeds)
  • Helps to treat and prevent cataracts and macular degeneration since glutathione helps to protect the lenses of the eyes and overall eye health
  • Like melatonin, it protects the skin against oxidative damage which leads to wrinkles; therefore, it is an excellent form of antiaging skincare
  • Liver detoxification which can lead to reversal of disease, obesity, and inflammation (both regular and silent inflammation)
  • Glutathione is the brain’s master antioxidant and plays an important role in the brain. When glutathione levels drop, brain cells die off much more quickly
