Glutathione defends against toxins, disease, aging and oxidative stress.
Declining levels of glutathione in the body increases vulnerability to over 70 major diseases…
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Parkinson’s disease
• Liver disease
• Heart attack
• Thyroid disease
• Poor immunity
• Frequent infections
• Poor memory
• Impaired cognition
• Weight gain
• Vision problems…
“Being able to stimulate the body’s own endogenous production of glutathione is the most significant breakthrough in natural medicine that I’ve seen in 3o years.”
Glutathione is the body’s most important defense against free radicals, chemical toxins, radiation, heavy metals, pollution and oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is the damage caused to our cells as the result of normal oxidative processes occurring all the time in our bodies.
If you cut an apple in half the exposed sliced parts will soon turn brown. This is an example of oxidative stress. It is the same process which causes metals to rust. A healthy body will keep the damaging effects of oxidative stress at bay. However, cells are damaged when the effects of oxidative stress overwhelm the body’s ability to protect itself.
Someone who spends too much time in the sun will have damaged skin due to the effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. In a sense, oxidative stress causes the body to “rust” and cause premature aging.
Oxidative stress, in fact, is the cause of about 70 different diseases including heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, cataracts, and thyroid disease.
Some of the reasons that oxidative stress is implicated in so many disease processes is that it damages our DNA, leading to cell membrane dysfunction, and inactivation of proteins which are critical in the healing process.
