Glutathione: The Super Detox Molecule
We live in a modern but toxic world in which it is almost impossible to escape from continuous exposure to toxins, chemicals, environmental pollutants, heavy metals and drugs.In combination with stress and an unhealthy diet, after only a short time the body loses its ability to produce sufficient amounts of naturally produced detoxifying glutathione in order to detoxify and protect its cells.
This glutathione deficiency results in cell damage and the loss of the ability to function optimally. Our energy level falls and inflammation occurs more frequently. Disease sets in more easily and the aging process is accelerated.
Glutathione is the body's most powerful detoxifier and binder of heavy metals, and is also the most important antioxidant. It binds toxins and removes them from the body. Consequently, glutathione protects the body's cells and prevents them from being damaged by contaminants.
Glutathione has numerous benefits for your health:
- increases energy and vitality
- slows the aging process
- strengthens the immune system
- detoxifies the liver and all body cells
- binds heavy metals and assists in excretion
- reduces all cellular inflammation
- protects the brain and improves clear thinking and concentration
- reduces the negative effects of stress
- recommended for fibromyalgia and nerve disorders
- promotes healthy sleep
- maintains the skin's natural glow
- enhances athletic performance and accelerates recovery
- protects the DNA (carrier of genetic information) and mitochondria
- helps combat extreme fatigue, weakness and exhaustion
The detoxification molecule
The air that we breathe, our food, drinking water and the substances with which we come in contact currently contain over 80,000 chemicals. In combination with alcohol, nicotine and medications, this poses a tremendous strain on our detoxification system.
Glutathione is the body's first line of defense against chemicals, toxins and heavy metals. It detoxifies the cells when present in optimal amounts. Normally, glutathione is produced in sufficient amounts in the body from the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamine.
If the toxic load is too great, the body is no longer able to produce the amount of glutathione necessary to detoxify itself. Also, after 45 years of age glutathione levels begin to decline, and - depending on your lifestyle - can fall up to 50% below optimum levels.
Binds heavy metals
Heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic and lead can results in such extensive damage to cells that they degenerate and allow cancer to occur. Fortunately, glutathione binds heavy metals, allowing them to be excreted in the urine.The body's own supply of glutathione is insufficient to detoxify it in the event of excessive exposure to heavy metals - meaning additional glutathione should be taken.
Mother of All Antioxidants
Glutathione is the most powerful endogenous free radical scavenger and has the ability to neutralize many types of free radicals. It is also the only antioxidant that continually regenerates itself in order to neutralize more and more free radicals.
Antioxidants such as vitamin C and E usually have no value after they have fulfilled their task. However, glutathione can recycle these antioxidants, permitting them to once again fulfill their role as free radical scavengers in the body's cells.
No wonder glutathione is known as the mother of all antioxidants.
Protects cells and DNA
The lower the level of glutathione, the more prone DNA becomes to malfunction. A collapse of mitochondrial DNA (the carrier of genetic information) accelerates aging and promotes disease.
Preserve sufficient levels of glutathione, however, and the cell's nucleus remains protected. Glutathione regulates all cell activity, ensuring optimal functioning of the cells and thus the health of the body as a whole.
Protects the immune system
Our immune cells exist to protect us. But what protects the immune cells? Glutathione takes on this job and allows newly formed immune cells to proliferate in order to better fight off germs and viruses.
Glutathione also strengthens the immune system through the reproduction and activation of lymphocytes, and is involved in almost all the body's own healing and protection measures.
Experts now agree that nearly all function disorders and diseases start with inflammation at the cellular level. Glutathione possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties directly within cells and promotes good health.
The first stable glutathione
Conventional reduced glutathione is largely destroyed in the gastrointestinal tract, which is why very high doses must be taken. With S-acetyl glutathione, scientists have now developed the first stable form of glutathione.
S-acetyl glutathione is completely absorbed into the blood and passes intact into the body's cells, where it can unleash its full protective effect. The use of gastric-acid resistant vegetable capsules increases the stability of S-acetyl glutathione even further.
Highest quality glutathione
The S-acetyl glutathione contained in the product is manufactured according to stringent GMP guidelines. Each batch is extensively tested and certified. This guarantees the highest quality, purity and optimal bioavailability.
Glutathione is safe
Glutathione has been studied for several decades, and more than 98,000 scientific studies of it have been performed. Since Glutathione is a molecule produced in the body and is found in all cells and promotes the body's ability to detoxify itself, glutathione also has no side effects if taken in additional amounts.
