Glutathione is considered to be the most powerful, most versatile and most important of the body’s self generated antioxidants that is found in almost all living cells. It is also considered to be one of the most powerful anticancer agents manufactured by the body. Glutathione works as a detoxification, or chelating, agent which works to remove heavy metals and other common toxins that our bodies are exposed to on a regular basis. It is also used to aid in treatment of liver disease, ulcers and neurological conditions, as well as to assist in overall immune function. Reduced Glutathione suppositories utilize an antioxidant makeup to aid the body in neutralizing free radicals and prevent their formation, while protecting valuable proteins.
Among glutathione’s many important properties are:
Is found in almost all living cells. The liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, and the lens and cornea, have the highest concentrations in the body
It is a POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT and thus neutralizes free radicals and prevents their formation
Important role in immune function via white blood cell production and is one of the most potent anti-viral agents known
It is one of the strongest anti-cancer agents manufactured by the body.
It is used by the liver to detoxify toxins including formaldehyde, acetaminophen, benzpyrene and many other compounds
It is an antioxidant necessary for the protection of proteins; is involved in nucleic acid synthesis and plays a role in DNA repair,
It maintains the cellular redox potential
Glutathione levels decrease with age. It is involved in cellular differentiation and slows the aging process
Protects the integrity of red blood cells
Glutathione is involved in maintaining normal brain function.
Therapeutically, Glutahione is used for:
Heavy metal toxicity including mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium:
Common toxins that glutathione may help protect against are car exhaust, cigarette smoke, aspirin and alcohol (Marz, p. 78, 1997)
Pesticide and industrial chemical exposure
Bacterial toxins (Clostridia difficile)
Pharmaceuticals (very long list that need to be detoxified by the liver) (Marz, p. 79, 1997)
Immune enhancement: 1-3 g per day. This is especially effective against clostridium in the GI. It helps prevent translocation.
Diabetes mellitus: Especially in ketosis as DM patients will generally excrete increased amounts of sulfur containing amino acids.
Liver disease including cirrhosis and fatty liver disease caused by alcohol: Clinical Research and Case studies show significant improvement in as little as 2 weeks.
Ulcers intestinal or stomach: In patients with stomach ulcers low levels of GSH have been found.
Aspirin or phenacetin overdose (useful for rheumatoid arthritis patients or chronic pain sufferers on 8 or more aspirin/day)
Hematological conditions: myelofibrosis, acute leukemia, chronic myelocytic leukemia, lymphoma, polycythemia vera
Before radiation therapy
Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’sdisease), Multiple Sclerosis,, other neurologic conditions including Autism/Pervasive Developmental Delay and Chronic Kidney Failure
Although many have touted the benefits of this product, it was sold for many years as an oral supplement. However, it is well known that ORAL SUPPLEMENTATION OF ALL FORMS OF GLUTATHIONE DOES NOT RAISE TISSUE LEVELS OF GLUTATHIONE. Therefore the only way one could truly raise the reduced glutathione levels in body was by undergoing costly direct intravenous administration of reduced glutathione.
What makes this product truly revolutionary is that clinical case studies have demonstrated we are now able to raise tissue levels of reduced glutathione by our ability to combine pure pharmaceutical grade Reduced Glutathione into our proprietary patent pending suppository base, thus effectively allowing Reduced Glutathione in combination with N Acetyl Cysteine to be delivered directly into the blood stream effecting an elevation of the serum glutathione levels.
