Glutathione your master cell protector

  1. 1. GLUTATHIONE Your Master Cell ProtectorWednesday, March 14, 2012
  2. 2. What is Glutathione? Glutathione is a powerful compound that is produced in every single cell in our bodies and is one of the four essential components that our cells need to thrive (water, oxygen and nutrients make up the rest). It is even present in our interstitial fluids (between the cells), albeit in much smaller quantities. If our cells don’t have any of these essential components, they die – and we die. If they don’t have enough, they don’t function optimally – and we don’t function optimally. It’s that simple! Water Nutrients Oxygen Glutathione When any of these are absent, the cell will die. When any of these factors are not optimal, the cell will struggle to do its work.Wednesday, March 14, 2012
  3. 3. Why is Glutathione Important? There are plenty of reasons why you need to raise the glutathione level in your body: 1.!It is the MASTER Antioxidant – While antioxidants like Vitamin C has only five electrons to neutralise free radicals, and can potentially become a free radical itself, glutathione recycles itself and all other antioxidants so that they can do their jobs again and again. With a million electrons, glutathione is a supreme antioxidant molecule that can neutralise countless free radicals and recycle other antioxidants. It’s no wonder that it is the most important antioxidant and is at least 10,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C! It can handle every single type of free radical – beat that! 2.!It is the MASTER Anti-Inflammatory – Glutathione is needed to combat intracellular inflammation and inhibits the production of most inflammatory cytokines. 3.!It is the MASTER Cell Detoxifier – Know why the liver does most of the detoxification work? Well, it is most concentrated in glutathione! However, apart from the liver, every cell needs optimal glutathione levels to defend against toxins from heavy metals to bacteria, viruses, poisons, free radicals and other invaders. It doesn’t just protect from these bad boys and cancer cells, but also work to expel them from the inside out. 4.!It is the Gatekeeper of our Cells – Glutathione is crucial for protein synthesis and nutrient assimilation. Whether you drink a glass of fresh antioxidant-rich juice or a raw protein shake, glutathione is the gatekeeper which pulls the amino acids and nutrients into the cell to be absorbed. Without sufficient glutathione, all the fancy nutrition is hardly of any value to the cell, and thus for health. 5.!It Boosts Our Immunity – Glutathione protects the immune cells and act as signalling molecules to activate accurate and optimal immune response, on both the innate and adaptive level. The all-important T-lymphocytes are very significantly activated, resulting in strong proliferation. Glutathione is essential for phagocytic activity of polymorphonuclear neutrophils, dendritic cell functions, and antigen presentation by antigen-presenting cells (APCs). 6.!It is Needed for ATP (Energy) Production – People with high glutathione levels produce high amounts of ATP and feel much more energetic and alertWednesday, March 14, 2012
  4. 4. Why is Glutathione Important? 7.!It Maintains Cellular Redox Homeostasis – Maintains oxidational level of cells and holds them in check e.g. hemoglobin in red blood cells must be in reduced state (+2) to accept and bind to oxygen and deliver to cells and glutathione helps to ensure the red blood cells remain in this optimal state. 8.!It Improves Health Systemically – Brilliant for lungs, heart, kidneys, digestion, eyes, and even raising DHEA and IGF-1 levels, thus reflecting its significance in pituitary, adrenal and endocrine function (hormones) in general. 9.!It Never Becomes a Free Radical Itself – While many antioxidants may become free radicals themselves, especially in the absence of the necessary co factors and synergistic nutrients, glutathione never becomes a free radical! In fact, as the glutathione molecule’s electrons are completely used up and it becomes oxidised, it fuses with another oxidised molecule through a disulfide bridge to form GSSG. 10. It Induces Delta Wave Sleep – GSSG molecules induce deep, delta wave sleep, ensuring optimal repair and rejuvenation, and also HGH production. 11. It Supports Peak Athletic Performance and Accelerates Muscle Recovery – People doing cardiovascular or resistance training will find increased stamina, intensity, and faster recovery periods. 12. It Results in Healthy Weight Loss – As ATP production goes up, energy and caloric expenditure goes up, which is a surefire way to lose extra fat, even without any change in lifestyle. 13. It Protects DNA – Glutathione protects the nucleus DNA and mitochondrial DNA of the cell. 14. It robustly Supports Liver Function – Glutathione is most concentrated in the liver which is a dominant factor of why the liver does majority of the body’s detoxification work. 15. It is The Ultimate Anti-Aging Molecule – People who have aged considerably may be in for incredible changes in their appearance in as short as 2 weeks – with their skin tightening and looking more radiant very quickly – repairing the oxidative damage that has been dealt to them big time. Generally, skin health is boosted tremendously from the inside out!Wednesday, March 14, 2012
  5. 5. What is Oxidative Stress and How Does it Produce Free Radicals? Your body constantly reacts with oxygen as you breathe and your cells produce energy. As a consequence of this activity, highly reactive molecules are produced known as free radicals. Free radicals interact with other molecules within cells. This can cause oxidative damage to proteins, membranes and DNA. Oxidative damage has been implicated in the cause of many diseases and has an impact on the bodys aging process. Here are just some of the diseases are caused by oxidative stress: • Heart Disease • Cancer • Arthritis • Lung Disease • Fibromyalgia • Diabetes • Neurodegenerative Diseases like Parkinsons and Alzheimers • Autoimmune Diseases • Eye Diseases like Macular Degeneration External factors, such as pollution, sunlight and smoking, also trigger the production of free radicals. The Answer to Oxidative Stress To counteract oxidative stress, the body produces an armoury of antioxidants to defend itself. Its the job of antioxidants to neutralise or mop up free radicals that can harm our cells. Our body uses antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E to fight these free radicals by stabilizing them.  However, little is know about Glutathioneʼs role in making them work and how it rids the liver and brain of free radicals. Glutathione itself is an important water-soluble antioxidant and free-radical scavenger. Glutathione works with vitamin C and vitamin E to reduce free radicals in the brain and liver.Wednesday, March 14, 2012
  6. 6. Over 100,000 Scientific Studies and articles on Glutathione are recorded in PubMed, and only less than 48,000 on vitamin C!Wednesday, March 14, 2012
  7. 7. PROBLEM: Your Glutathione Level is Decreasing but the Attack on Your Cells are NOT! As we grow older, the Glutathione levels in our body are decreasing. As Dr Julia TwoMoon, NMD says, “The unfortunate truth is that the human body has begun to undergo accelerated changes as a result of unavoidable exposures to toxins, chemicals, and damaging foods we are now exposed to... And the consequence of all this exposure is constant free radica damage to our cells, our DNA, and every structure in our bodies. All disease is the result of this damage. “Sixty years ago, with adequate diet, exercise, rest and stress management, we could live long, healthy lives... Now we need strong nutritional support whether we are currently feeling the effects of depleted Glutathione or not.”Wednesday, March 14, 2012
