Glutathione is considered one of the most important amino acids/molecules you have.
It has been called the Master Detoxifier and the Maestro of Immunity
It is needed to fight cancer, dementia, heart disease and so much more but most people have never heard of it – or don’t know how to get it. And it is often deficient.
Per Dr Hyman:
In treating chronically ill patients with Functional Medicine for more than 10 years, I have discovered that glutathione deficiency is found in nearly all very ill patients. These include people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease and more.
As you can see, supporting your Glutathione is Ultra Important, luckily, our HEALTHY body, with the right nutrients, makes it. Unfortunately, a bad diet, toxins, stress, pharmaceuticals and even aging all deplete it.
So how do you get it? It’s not that simple. There are Glutathione supplements but absorbing it can be a problem. The main problem is that our detoxification system is simply not set up for the overwhelming amount of toxins in our envirnment so we simply don’t make enough anymore. Plus about 50% of the population may be deficient in the gene that produces it, to begin with.
Glutathione is made in the liver and needs many vitamins, amino acids and other co-factors to produce it. I consider it the last step in detoxification process.
The best way to support your Glutathione is to supplement with many of the vitamins and amino acids I mention all the time.
Specifically Glutathione is made from three amino acids: Cysteine, Glutamine, and Glycine. But it needs methylated B vitamins and many other co-factors too.
HERE ARE THE BEST WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR GLUTATHIONE PRODUCTION:
If you take Glutathione be sure it is in a liposomal form and take away from protein.
If you want to be sure you build your own, which most health officianos recommend:
Eat sulfer rich foods such as garlic and onion.
Take sulfer supplement MSM.
Take Methylated B vitamins B12. Folate and B6
Take the amino acids that build it: Cysteine, Glycine and Glutamine.
This system gives you the ULTIMATE liver detoxifier!
Cheers & To Your Health
