Glutathione is one of the most important proteins in your body. It is also the most powerful cellular detoxifier as well as what the liver uses to neutralize toxins. Glutathione is the second most important anti-oxidant in the body. There are over 80 diseases associated with low glutathione levels. Pub Med has over 92,000 articles on glutathione, more than twice as much as the number of articles on vitamin C.
Glutathione is used in the mitochondria of cells to neutralize the free radicals created in the process of making energy. It also works to neutralize all types of toxins in your cells. You run out of glutathione in your cells, and the mitochondria can become damaged by free radicals, impairing energy production and allowing toxins to build up in the cells, further damaging them.
Glutathione also strengthens the immune system, fights inflammation in cells and ultimately, helps slow the aging process. Glutathione is a tri-peptide of the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. A deficiency of glutathione can cause hemolysis (destruction of red blood cells, leading to anemia) and oxidative stress.
Glutathione is essential in intermediary metabolism ... for the detoxification of acetaminophen. (PDR Medical Dictionary. Spraycar. 1999)
"Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect your body against disease." Breakthrough in Cell Defense, Allan Somersall, Ph.D., M.D., and Gustavo Bounous, M.D. FRCS(C).
"No other antioxidant is as important to overall health as glutathione. It is the regulator and regenerator of immune cells and the most valuable detoxifying agent in the human body. Low levels are associated with hepatic dysfunction, immune dysfunction, cardiac disease, premature aging, and death." The Immune System Cure, Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe & Patrick J.D. Bouic, Ph.D.
As Dr. Lombard points out in his book, "The Brain Wellness Plan," Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body. Depressed glutathione levels are associated with the increased generation of free radicals found in Parkinsons patients, for example, and contributes to further brain cell death."
