What is Glutathione?

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is the master protector of your cells.  It plays a vital role in the protection and function of every cell in the human body and the support of optimal health and function.  If you go to the National Library Medicine at and search for glutathione, you will find over 100,000 published studies.  That’s TWICE as many published studies on glutathione than you will find on Vitamin C. 

·         Is the body’s master antioxidant
·         Is the primary detoxifier of the cell
·         Is a powerful chelator of heavy metals
·         Is the protector of the immune cell
·         Is the protector of the mitochondria DNA
·         Is the protector of the nucleus of the cell
·         Reduces Oxidative Stress
·         Reduces intercellular inflammation
·         Is the re-utilizing agent of ingested antioxidants
·         Is the reducing agent for hemoglobin, allowing it to transport oxygen to every cell

Low glutathione levels accelerate the aging process and increase vulnerability to the issues of aging such as cell damage and disease and inflammation.  “Every disease (cancer, heart disease, neuro-degenerative, etc.) is linked to low levels of glutathione” (Keller, R, nd).   “A deficiency of intracellular glutathione has been identified in a number of clinical conditions including cancer, alcohol-induced liver disease, and AIDS” (Murray, 1996).   

Did you know your body is at war?
It is a war between your body’s natural defenses called antioxidants and the attacks of harmful free radicals.  There is a constant onslaught on your body and immune system just by living here on this toxic planet with the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat.  On top of that, if you experience any kind of stress, or if you smoke, or if you drink alcohol in excess, or take pharmaceutical drugs or recreational drugs (both toxic), you are on the downward spiral away from homeostasis, the state of wellness.

The Problem
After the age of 20, glutathione production slows markedly, 10% to 15% every decade, resulting in fewer antioxidant soldiers to fight free radical enemies.  

Can you supplement your diet with Glutathione?
“Dietary glutathione is not a major determinant of circulating glutathione” (Murray, 1996).   Studies show that it is not feasible to increase glutathione to a clinical benefit simply by taking glutathione as a supplement because glutathione supplements are useless. They are destroyed in the digestive system before they are able to get into the cell. Intravenous glutathione helps, but they are merely a temporary fix - much like a pharmaceutical medication is, and glutathione supplements do not get into the mitochondria of the cell where the glutathione is naturally manufactured from very specific nutrients. 

So what can you do to boost your levels of glutathione? Various animal and vegetable sources of food give us the components we need to produce glutathione.  Asparagus, leafy greens, brussel sprouts and Vitamin C, meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and cottage cheese are among some of those foods.  But do you know how much to eat?  Given the problems with our food supply, where plants we eat are sprayed with pesticides and grown in soil that is lacking nutrients, and animals we eat are not range-free but fed steroids and hormones to grow fat, and fish is farmed, and chickens are kept in filthy tiny coops and not allowed to be run, at best, how much of what foods is enough?  How much asparagus and Vitamin C would it take to help the mitochondria of the cell manufacture a therapeutic amount of glutathione to help halt the effects of free-radical damage? 

Is your life, and your health worth it to you?   Is being healthy that simple? No - it is important that you educate yourself on the components of good health.  Raising your glutathione levels is one very crucial step in getting and maintaining good health.

Glutathione Accelerator
The guess work has been taken out of the equation with a patented glutathione accelerator by Max International.  This accelerator is a combination of very specific nutrients that is clinically proven to increase glutathione levels 292% within 60 days.

It is a lot easier to support your health than to fix it!  As we age and expose our bodies to stress, chemicals, pollutants and certain lifestyle habits, we begin to lose energy, vitality, mental alertness and more! 

Do yourself a favor…..Go to and search on glutathione; search on glutathione with any kind of health concern or disease.  You WILL find a study that has linked glutathione with every kind of disease and/or health concern known.  The danger lies in the thought that low levels of glutathione really don’t matter or that you will do something about this TOMORROW.

People with Higher Glutathione Levels:

·                 Have More Energy
·                 Recover Faster From Exercise
·                 Sleep Better
·                 Have Greater Mental Clarity and Focus
·                 Less Inflammation
·                 Improved Joint Function
·                 Have Better Immune Systems
·                 Live Longer
·                 Live Better
