Supplement of the Month: Glutathione

Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant and is found in virtually every cell of the human body.  It is an extremely important cell protectant.  This heavy lifter bolsters antioxidant action, promotes detoxification and fortifies the immune system. As the formation of free radicals exceeds the body’s ability to neutralize and eliminate them, oxidative stress occurs.  A primary function of glutathione is to alleviate this oxidative stress. Food sources of glutathione are few and oxidative stress and depletion can outpace the body’s need for it.

Glutathione is most prevalent in the main detox organs of the human body which are the liver, lungs and kidneys.  Glutathione can become depleted as the body neutralizes the oxidizing effects of battling viruses, bacteria, heavy metal toxicity, radiation, certain medications, and even the normal process of aging. A correlation has been made between increased vulnerability to infection (chronically ill)  and glutathione depletion. Glutathione can bind to toxins, heavy metals, solvents and pesticides and help the body to excrete these substances through urine or bile.  It also protects the lungs against airborne pollutants and the intestinal lining from absorption of industrial chemicals.

Especially for glutathione, liposomal preparations are important. Liposomes are delivery vehicles for transporting substances into the body effectively by facilitating absorption both in the mouth, skin and digestive tract.

At TWIHW, we offer three glutathione products. One is Essential Pro Liposomal Glutathione Softgels, which are taken orally.  We also offer Researched Nutritionals Tri-Fortify Liposomal Glutathione sublingual gel which comes in two flavors and is placed under the tongue.  Finally, we also can dose glutathione through IV preparations.

Liposomal Glutathione, by Quicksilver Scientific

Liposomal Glutathione, by Quicksilver Scientific

Glutathione is the master detoxifier and the main antioxidant produced in the body. * Toxins are linked to glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool, and out of the body.  Glutathione protects our cells’ delicate chemical machinery, and helps energy metabolism run efficiently. * Glutathione is also integral to our immune system, especially for resistance to viruses.

Additionally, Scientific research at Baylor College of Medicine has confirmed that deficiency of the same molecule (glutathione) contributes to weight gain and even obesity. Deficiency of this same has been linked to poor health and disease. – Dr. Mac MD

* Typical oral delivery of glutathione is greatly inhibited by breakdown in the stomach.  Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ protects glutathione from breakdown in the digestive system that otherwise prevents absorption of oral glutathione supplementation. *  In addition to greatly improving bioavailability, the liposomal delivery format enables intracellular delivery of glutathione.  In cell cultures, liposomal glutathione has been demonstrated to be 100 times more efficient for intracellular delivery than non-liposomal glutathione. *  This supplement is delivered through two pumps sprayed into the mouth, held for 30 seconds and then swallowed. It can also be dispersed in water or other liquid if desired.  It has a pleasant lemon-mint taste and can also be applied topically to cold sores or viral lesions.

*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
