“For those who have chronic Fatigue, Heart disease, Cancer, Chronic Infections, Autoimmune disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, Arthritis, Asthma, Kidney problems, Liver diseases, you name it. If you are very sick, you most likely have a Glutathione Deficiency.”
The combination of our modern nutrient-depleted diet, a lack of exercise, high levels of obesity and low levels of a vital enzyme known as glutathione have combined to create a toxic environment perfect for the development of the many lifestyle diseases plaguing humanity today. Over 125 million Americans have at least one chronic condition like heart disease, diabetes or autoimmune illness, with nearly half of us having two or more of these conditions.
What is glutathione anyway?
Glutathione is a simple molecule absolutely essential to the prevention of chronic and age-related diseases. It is produced naturally by the body and is made up of a combination of three protein or amino acid building blocks: cysteine, glycine, and glutamine.
(And by the way, LIPOSOMAL GLUTATHIONE from lookingvibrant.com is produced exclusively in Japan through a fermentation process to help increase absorption.
According to Dr. Alec Banham: “A liposomal vitamin is packaged like a bodily cell, so it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers more than 90% of the nutrient directly to the bloodstream within Minutes.”)
It is capable of regenerating itself in the liver and fights the accumulation of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are the result of toxic overload in combination with normal cellular metabolic oxidation and are directly associated with inflammation and disease, particularly autoimmune and other chronic diseases.
Glutathione neutralizes toxins and free radicals, boosts immunity, reduces inflammation, repairs DNA, transports amino acids to and from cells, and performs a host of other vital functions.
Natural News reported:
Although glutathione is found in every cell in the body, it is particularly concentrated in the liver – where it works overtime to neutralize the carcinogens, pollutants, and toxins to which we are exposed on a daily basis.
These include pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals (such as mercury in fish), vehicle and factory emissions, chemicals such as benzene and chlorine found in household cleaners, GMO foods and even radiation from wireless networks.
