What Is Glutathione?
Glutathione is often referred to as the body’s “master antioxidant” and is the most important molecule in your body that you never heard of. It is involved in preventing everything from cancer, dementia, heart disease and even wrinkles.
There are over 89,000 medical articles about the importance of it but most physicians know little or nothing about this important molecule.
The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.
So what’s all the fuss anyway? The secret power of glutathione is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule. It acts like magnet and all the bad things in the body stick to it, including free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals. Glutathione becomes depleted, which results in the inability for us to protect ourselves against free radicals, infections, cancer and we can’t get rid of toxins.
Keeping yourself optimally healthy and preventing diseases depends upon keeping your glutathione levels high.
