Is Your Body’s Master Antioxidant
It is considered the master antioxidant due to its unique multifunctional characteristics as well as its unprecedented ability to neutralize many types of free radicals that assault the cell. It is the only antioxidant that can recycle itself again and again to continually fight free radicals.
Is The Primary Detoxifier of the Cell
Today we are confronted by over 80,000 chemicals in the air we breathe, the food and water we ingest, and the materials we touch and handle. Many of these toxic chemicals enter our cells and must be eliminated to protect the cell and maintain optimum function. Glutathione is the cell’s fi rst line of defense against chemicals and toxins and the primary detoxi er that can eliminate many of these toxins when it is present in optimal amounts.
Is A Powerful Chelator of Heavy Metals
Heavy metals enter our cells in the same manner as chemical toxins. Fortunately, they can be removed from the cell by a process of chelation, and glutathione is one of the cell’s most powerful chelating agents.
Is The Protector of the Immune Cell
Our immune cells are designed to protect us, but what protects the immune cell? Glutathione is the protector of the immune cell and allows newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs and viruses.
Is The Protector of Mitochondrial DNA
The breakdown of the mitochondrial DNA accelerates aging and increases cell death. Glutathione is the protector of the Mitochondrial DNA, and the lower the glutathione level, the more vulnerable this DNA becomes to breakage.
Is The Protector of the Nucleus of the Cell
The nucleus of the cell regulates all cell activity and protecting it is critical to the health of the cell and its optimal function. When present in suf ficient amounts, glutathione gives the nucleus the protection it needs.
Reduces Oxidative Stress
Oxidative Stress is the most aggressive destructive force that assaults the cell. Cells manufacture a number of antioxidants to counter oxidative stress. Glutathione plays a primary role in neutralizing many different types of free radicals and supporting our antioxidant defense system.
Reduces Intracellular Inflammation
Infl ammation is the mortal enemy to the tissues, organs and various systems of the body. All in flammation begins at the cellular level, and low glutathione levels are associated with infl ammation.
Is The Re-Utilizing Agent of Ingested Antioxidants
Antioxidants that are ingested that are (not manufactured by the body such as vitamin C and E), once spent, cannot be re-utilized by the cell unless they are first converted into a usable state. Glutathione is the agent that converts those antioxidants into a state that can be utilized by the cell.
Is The Reducing Agent for Hemoglobin, Allowing it to Transport Oxygen to Every Cell
The purpose of hemoglobin is to carry oxygen to all living cells. However, when it is oxidized it can not carry an oxygen molecule and must first be reduced to an acceptable state. Glutathione protects hemoglobin from oxidizing agents and can also reduce the oxidized form to make this possible.
