Glutathione and its Role in Protecting Your Cells from Environmental Toxins

We live in a toxic world. According to the environmental protection agency, over 80,000 chemicals are used in our industries today. From the preservatives used in our food and the chemicals found in our water, to the pollutants found in our air. Let’s not forget the chemicals some of us knowingly put into our bodies, like alcohol and tobacco.

Many of the chemicals are carcinogenic. They can cause cancer within our body. Our body has ways to protect us from these carcinogenic chemicals. One method involves Glutathione. This is one of the main antioxidant systems our body has to protect us from toxins. Glutathione has the ability to enhance the elimination of harmful chemicals and increase our cells defense system against toxins. Glutathione is naturally created within the body by using 3 amino acids: Glutamate, Glycine and Cysteine. A poor diet, malabsorption of nutrients, digestive problems and a sluggish liver, can all contribute to lowered levels of Glutathione in the body. Glutathione is also quite unstable when taken as a supplement. It quickly breaks down in your digestive tract.

Intravenous administration, is a very effective way to increase blood levels of Glutathione. A simple procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes, can increase your body’s ability to detoxify harmful chemicals, improve liver function, and protect cells from premature aging. Of course, following a clean diet and healthy lifestyle is the most important part of maintaining good health. Adding intravenous Glutathione can increase your body’s defense against both internal and external toxins. It is also a great way to improve your liver’s ability to detoxify your body.
