Glutathione is the mother of all antioxidants since it is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease. It’s a perfect anti-aging agent that helps prevents cancer, heart disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and many more.*
It can be termed as the master detoxifier and a maestro of the immune system which is so important for the body to function in a healthy fashion.*
Natural Bio Health, in keeping with its goal of providing optimal health to all clients, offers a Glutathione push. This antioxidant is injected directly into the blood. We also provide this treatment to clients who have received chemotherapy treatments or who suffer from autoimmune diseases like lupus, crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, and inflammatory bowel disease. Glutathione can help neutralize free radicals and is helpful for treating inflammation.*
Many hormone therapy patients love this treatment and receive once a week treatments. Our weight loss patients and our other weight loss patients use it to boost their continued strength and immunity while on a calorie restricted diet plan.*
Whether you are traveling or plan to travel, preparing a fitness event like a 5K or 10K run, or a marathon or a triathlon, or just want to feel your best, a glutathione push (particularly when combined with our Myers’ Cocktail) can help protect you from downtime.
What is Glutathione & What Does It Do?
Glutathione (GSH), as the antioxidant substance, can be helpful for good immune function. It is also beneficial for liver detoxification. It may induce apoptosis (cell death) in tumor cells.*
GSH levels drop dramatically when the toxic load is high or when stress is present (as it is in most of us). It plays a direct role in the neutralization of free radicals and reactive oxygen compounds as it is an antioxidant produced by our cells.*
Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals can damage cells, and may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. When cancerous cells are exposed to antioxidants, they can increase the rate at which they are destroyed (the cancer cells) and can become less able to switch on the gene that tells them to grow.
Key Benefits of Glutathione
Glutathione is an amino acid synthesized from Cysteine. It can assist in the following when taken in large doses:
- It can neutralize free radicals
- Detoxifies environmental pollutants
- Is a neurotransmitter
- Is involved in the immune process with transport of amino acids across the cell membrane
- Improves macrophage (white blood cell) function (immunity)
- Is an intracellular antioxidant
- Is beneficial to the nitric oxide cycle (energy)
- Helps the body handle radiation, neurologic diseases, alcoholism, mercury and arsenic poisoning, brain injuries,
- Parkinson’s disease, emotional disorders and chronic kidney failure
Support Your Immune System with a Glutathione Push
Our immune system can be attacked and compromised daily by herbicides and pesticides, airborne and water borne toxins, stress, poor sleep, exposure to people with colds and viruses, chemicals, solvents, etc. Further, our most important antioxidant, Glutathione, can be depleted or malfunctioning often due to stress or autoimmune reactions.
Other Critical Functions of Glutathione
Glutathione can be used by the body in metabolic and biochemical reactions such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, prostaglandin synthesis, amino acid transport, and enzyme activation. Glutathione can play a role in the regulation of the nitric oxide cycle.*
