Glutathione: the Master Antioxidant
Glutathione (GSH) is considered a super antioxidant. Due to the toxicity of today’s world from heavy metals to environmental toxins we need assistance in eliminating these substances from our body. Certain man made chemicals (of which there are 10s of thousands now) are used in industry and agriculture every day and are known to be toxic to humans. The toxins increased the aging process and along with it debilitating diseases.
Glutathione has been coined with the term “master antioxidant”. It is found naturally in the body, produced within each cell but is constantly being depleted. These depletions occur in accelerated rates when toxins are in the body (which is always). Glutathione neutralizes free radicals and revives other antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E back to their active form. Glutathione also strengthens T cells, which are critical for the immune system. Glutathione is produced less as we age at an estimated rate of 8-12% per decade after the age of 20.
