Glutathione Protects Our Cells

Glutathione is found in every cell of the body and it’s primarily responsible for protecting the cells. It’s considered one of the body’s main antioxidants and it reduces oxidation in the body. Oxidation or oxidative stress is the result of damage on our cells by free radicals such as toxins, chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis

This constant stress can lead to diseases or illness because our cells are more vulnerable when they are in a weakened state.

Glutathione is considered one of the body’s main antioxidants. It reduces oxidation in the body and protects us from disease and illness


Glutathione is composed of 3 amino acids cysteine, glutamate and glycine. These amino acids help the body function properly and deliver vital nutrients to the body. In addition, Glutathione also plays an important role in revitalizing other antioxidants in the body.

Because Glutathione levels decrease as we age, it’s important to monitor and keep your levels optimized. You can increase your levels by dietary changes, nutraceuticals or even Glutathione IV Therapy.

To increase your levels you can add more broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale garlic, onions, avocado and walnuts to your diet. You can also supplement by taking a glutathione oral supplement or taking other supplements that can directly increase levels such as N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), Alpha Lipoic and melatonin.
