Pssst. Hey, guess what? I have a secret for you. It’s the secret to preventing:
- heart disease
It’s also the secret to treating conditions, including:
- Alzheimer’s disease
And it will also give you:
- more energy by helping heal the adrenal glands 30-50% faster
- better sleep
- a stronger immune system
- less joint pain
- the ability to recycle other antioxidants like vitamin C, E & A
I have never believed in keeping secrets that can help someone, so I am letting this profound secret out of the bag. This secret is……drumroll please…….
Pronounced “gloota-thigh-own,” this nutrient is considered to be the “MASTER” antioxidant naturally produced “within” our cells. You might recall that antioxidants include vitamins like vitamin C and E and are important because they neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidation (mass destruction).
The master antioxidant, glutathione, because it is “within” almost all cells, is in a prime position to neutralize free radicals and have widespread health benefits. Glutathione helps keep cells running smoothly, helps the immune system fight disease, as well as helps the liver remove chemicals that are foreign to the body, including pollutants, drugs and other toxins.
Technically, despite its major functions in the body to maintain health and prevent disease, glutathione is not an “essential nutrient.” The reason it is not considered to be an “essential nutrient” is because the body can create it from three amino acids that we get from our diet. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins.
These three amino acids are:
This is great news that our body produces it on its own, BUT unfortunately, there are so many things that we are faced with everyday that can deplete our glutathione. Go to my next blog post in this series to find out just what those things are. See you there!
