Glutathione, a simple molecule made up of three amino acids glycine, glutamine and cysteine – is naturally produced by the body. Its function is the body’s premier antioxidant, eliminating free radicals associated with aging, inflammation, infections, toxins, and metabolic wastes. But levels drop throughout our lifetime leaving us vulnerable to illness and infection as we age. Supplementing orally with glutathione is poorly absorbed. The most efficient way to administer glutathione is intravenously. You can also supply the body with the raw materials required for the body to synthesize your own glutathione. Cruciferous vegetables, avocados, and walnuts and supplements of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), alpha lipoic acid, selenium, silymarin, and melatonin are most effective in ramping up glutathione production. With the ability of Glutathione to aid with DNA repair, neutralization of drugs, chemicals, radiation, metabolic wastes, and other toxins and carcinogens, practitioners have had success treating patients with chronic fatigue, environmental sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, autism, heavy metal toxicity and those recovering from strokes, hepatitis, Parkinson’s disease, and other chronic illnesses.
