NutriStart Liposomal Glutathione
Most people have heard of glutathione, even if they may not give it much thought, yet, glutathione is one of the most important nutritional compounds for human health and longevity.* Glutathione is essential for preventing cancer, heart disease, dementia, premature aging, and many more diseases.* And, glutathione deficiency is found occurring in virtually all seriously ill people. Fortunately, the body produces its own glutathione. Unfortunately, it is depleted by aging, infections, medications, pollution, poor diet, radiation, stress, toxins, and trauma.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver, constructed from the amino acids cysteine, glutamine, and glycine. It is necessary to protect cellular health, and is the single most important antioxidant that we require in order for the body to properly detoxify.*
Found throughout the body, the highest concentrations of glutathione are found in the liver, and lining of the respiratory tract and nasal cavities. Inflammation, lung irritation (such as from smoke inhalation), and exposure to toxins, significantly reduces glutathione levels, as the body uses it to remove harmful chemicals.*
Glutathione has special status (the “Master Antioxidant”) because it is the only key antioxidant which acts inside the cells: all other antioxidants work outside the cell membranes.* Glutathione is therefore essential for protecting the DNA inside cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. And, healthy DNA replication is the key component of longevity.*
The other primary reason glutathione is critical for good health is its ability to recycle all the other antioxidants.* However, when our body is overwhelmed with too much oxidative stress, or too many toxins, glutathione becomes depleted.* At this point, we can no longer fight free radical damage (the underlying cause of aging and disease), nor can we effectively protect ourselves from cancer, infections, and toxins.*
Why take Liposomal Glutathione?
Most supplemental forms of glutathione are ineffective.* Conventional glutathione products are rapidly oxidized during digestion, and fail to actually increase blood levels of glutathione in the body.* The only forms of glutathione ever proven to substantially elevate levels of glutathione in the body are injection, sublingual, intravenous, and liposomal.*
