Glutathione is a super-powered ‘master antioxidant’ that fights aging, promotes cellular repair, fights oxidative stress, and detoxifies the liver. This ‘liquid gold’ is the secret to looking and feeling vibrant and fresh.
Glutathione is known to decline with age significantly. Maintaining adequate levels of this antioxidant is especially important because its primary role is to help reduce oxidative stress. Oxidative stress occurs when your body has an imbalance of antioxidants and free radicals. While oxidative stress happens naturally as a part of aging, it can also occur as a result of lifestyle, diet, or even environmental stresses like exposure to various household chemicals.
Increased oxidative stress caused by lower levels of glutathione leads to chronic inflammation, which is linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases (i.e., Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s), cancer, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, and autoimmune diseases. Furthermore, over the years, the accumulation of free radicals can accelerate how quickly your body ages. A higher concentration of free radicals may lead to more cell damage, leading to the appearance of dull skin, wrinkles, and lower energy levels associated with aging. Glutathione can slow the aging process and help you prolong a radiant and youthful appearance by eliminating free radicals before they can build up and cause cellular damage.
Glutathione is not typically effective when ingested orally, so it is commonly administered as a ‘glutathione push,’ a single shot containing a supercharged dose.
