Glutathione The Healing Agent

Glutathione
Here’s what the Experts are saying about Glutathione

• Glutathione is a substance, the levels of which in our cells are predictive of how long we will live. There are very few other factors which are as predictive of our life expectancy as is our level of cellular glutathione. We literally cannot survive without this antioxidant,” – Earl Mindell, R.Ph., Ph.D.

• 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 (Tylenol). – [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 Parkinson’s patients, for example, and contributes to further brain cell death.” – Excerpts from the Willner Window Radio Show: Program aired on 5-3-98

Medical science is still ascertaining all the critical roles played by glutathione in disease resistance and general good health. Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases.
