Your body makes a very powerful antioxidant called glutathione but most people have never even heard of it. It detoxifies your body and helps to keep your body healthy and youthful. Unfortunately your body doesn’t make enough of this antioxidant but there are supplements that you can take.
There are a few different ways that you can get a supplement of glutathione in your body and some are better than others. An IV used to be the only way to get the supplement. Now there is a pill that you can take that is more easily absorbed than the oral version of the supplement that was used previously. With the previous pill the stomach would bread down 90% and then only leave 10% to be absorbed.
The liver is where glutathione is made. It is made up of three different amino acids and is the most powerful antioxidant in your body. Some of the benefits of glutathione are:
– Helps to slow down the aging process which keeps you looking younger.
– It protects your DNA from any damage
– It helps your immune system fight off diseases
– It can protect against the free radicals that can cause dementia and other debilitating diseases.
– It clears all of the heavy metal toxins that may be in your body
Unfortunately you lose around 10% of your glutathione production every ten years so the older you get the less of this powerhouse antioxidant you will produce. You will also lose production if you do not have a healthy liver. Eating the right foods and exercising will help you to increase the amount of glutathione that is made in your body.
