Glutathione is the singularly most important and effective antioxidant in the body. It is essential in detoxifying cells and enhancing the immune system and immune function.
As we age, our bodies make less glutathione, and we actually need more than when we were young. In some conditions, younger people may also need more glutathione as well. This makes it crucial to supplement this Master Antioxidant to maintain optimal health. Several oral glutathione supplements are available on the market but only S Acetyl Glutathione and liposomal glutathione are actually bioavailable.
Glutathione supplements other than these two types are basically useless because they are broken down and become ineffective in your stomach before they can be utilised by the body.
The difference between Liposomal and S Acetyl Glutathione are that Acetyl glutathione is orally active and stable in the intestines and plasma and is absorbed and delivered directly to the cells for natural de-acetylation intracellularly.
Liposomal glutathione products are delivered to the plasma by precursors and must be broken down by enzymes to the basic amino acid components for absorption into the cell and require more energy expenditure.
Whilst both Liposomal and S Acetyl Glutathione are both excellent options for Glutathione supplementation, the Acetylated version has been found to deliver the equivalent amount of Glutathione to the body as IV therapy! Source
There are around 117,000 peer reviewed articles addressing Glutathione and experts now recognise the vital importance of glutathione levels in the body. Low levels are associated with many age related and chronic diseases.
Research shows that glutathione deficiency can lead to increased susceptibility to diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Many age related and environmental factors can increase cellular exposure to oxidative insult. This increase in exposure increases cellular consumption of nutrients such as glutathione, which provides antioxidant activity.
Glutathione functions extensively in organs and tissues throughout the body and plays a critical role in the protection of the body from oxidative stress. It maintains cellular function, and supports a healthy immune function.
This results in a cycle of oxidative stress which impedes the bodies ability to detoxify.Protection from oxidative stress is vital in maintaining tissue health and cellular integrity.
Benefits of S Acetyl Glutathione supplementation
Anti-Aging – Glutathione may help promote healthy ageing by repairing damaged DNA. Studies have shown that people who live to over the age of 100 have higher levels of Glutathione in their body. Source
Boost Energy – Glutathione may increase cell vitality, relieve fatigue, and boost daily energy levels. Studies show that those participants who used liposomal glutathione had an increase in overall energy, less muscle fatigue and lower blood lactic acid levels than those taking placebo. Source
Help leaky gut – Studies have shown Glutathione plays a vital role in reducing inflammation and gut barrier integrity. When the lining of the small intestine becomes over permeable, toxins, undigested food particles and other pathogens are able to pass into the bloodstream. This triggers systemic inflammation, which may, in turn, increase the risk of food sensitivity, neurological problems, inflammatory disorders and autoimmune disorders. Many autoimmune patients suffer from leaky gut, so addressing this problem is integral to helping manage autoimmunity. Depleted Glutathione levels make a person more susceptible to developing leaky gut and it’s related issues. Source
Improve Cognitive Function – Glutathione may help enhance brain function, alleviate mental fog and may have a neuro-protective effect. Leaky blood/brain barrier can develop if glutathione levels are depleted. A healthy blood/brain barrier is essential for optimal brain function. Source Studies have also suggested Glutathione maybe beneficial in helping prevent traumatic Brain injury TBI. Source
Liver function – Glutathione has been shown to improve enzyme, protein and bilirubin levels in the blood of individuals with alcoholic and nonalcoholic chronic fatty liver disease. Source
Immune system – Glutathione is essential to the body’s natural defence system and may assist the immune system by functioning as an antioxidant within immune cells and enhancing the activity of immune cells. SourceSource
Improved skin tone and clarity- Studies have shown that Glutathione use significantly improved wrinkles and skin elasticity and attenuated melanin overproduction. It is used for its skin whitening effect on melasma. Source
Sleep problems – Research has shown that sleep deprivation is linked to low levels of glutathione in specific regions of the brain. Source
Metabolic Disorders – Studies have indicated that low Glutathione levels are associated with less fat burning and higher rates of fat storage in the body. Older subjects who had Glutathione added to their diet showed improved metabolism and fat burning. Source
Mould and Mycotoxin exposure – Mould and mycotoxin exposure take a terrible toll on our inflammation status, toxic burden, immune system and glutathione levels. Mould exposure, chronic disease, and toxic burden cause glutathione levels to be depleted at a time when it is needed the most. Source
Recommended daily dose is 1/4 teaspoon, (approx) 500mg daily
