I really believe the road to recovery and continuing good health is a whole food, zero sugar and supplement supported diet along with as much activity as your body can manage. This post is the first of a couple talking about supplements and diet and todays topic is Glutathione.
Glutathione is a naturally occurring protein that is made by every cell in your body.
Glutathione functions to:
- Neutralize and remove toxins,
- Enhance immune function and
- Protect the cells from free radicals that cause oxidation damage.
- Natural properties to help with nerve pain and reduce swelling
- Improved energy
- Reduces the effects of Inflammation associated with aging
- Improves sleep
- Improved mental focus
- Improved recovery time after physical activity
- Disease protection
- Liver support
- Circulation and Digestive support
Glutathione is the most abundant cellular antioxidant in oxygen-using cells and is essential for neurological health. Alterations, including deficiencies in glutathione levels, have been found in several neurologic conditions.
Glutathione is essential for the body’s detoxification process. Glutathione binds with toxins to form a water-soluble complex that can be excreted through the liver.
Diminished levels of glutathione can lead to decreased efficiency in a number of body systems, including the immune cells designed to kill invading organisms. A wide range of health conditions are associated with low levels of glutathione.
I have been using liquid Glutathione for a couple of years and really feel better for using it. I use other supplements in conjunction with Glutathione and feel I am managing my nerve pain and joint swelling well without resorting to pharmaceuticals.
