The Mother of All Antioxidants
Free radicals are unstable molecules that form within the human body due to the constant cellular activity, metabolic processes, or from external sources such as exposure to X-rays, ozone, cigarette smoking, air pollutants, and industrial chemicals. These unstable atoms accumulate in the body and damage cells and tissues causing pre-mature aging or disease. To prevent this degenerative process, antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and reduces oxidative stress. How? By protecting and repairing DNA and keeping the body free from radical damage.
Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the body. It is comprised of three essential amino acids– glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. It could even contribute to longevity and could slow the aging process. These properties reduce inflammation and is essential for immune health. The immune system performs best when these antioxidants get rid of toxins like heavy metals and work in the liver for detoxification. Glutathione can help prevent side effects of drugs and environmental toxins. I like to administer glutathione intravenously because levels in the lungs reduces inflammation in bronchial tubes and lung tissue.
