Glutathione is an essential nutrient that our body naturally produces and is synthesized by amino acids. This is your SUPER HERO antioxidant enzyme. It is VERY important in the neutralization of free radicals and maintaining antioxidants, for example, Vit C and E, in their reactive forms. It is also important for DNA repair, protein synthesis, amino acid transport, and enzyme activation. When glutathione system is HEALTHY, that means your immune system, digestive system, and nervous system are working properly.
I can tell you that due to our foods and environment, the average persons glutathione levels are EXTREMELY LOW. ESPECIALLY those who have Parkinson’s, MS, Rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme’s, cancer, etc. Here is a great video stating why our own enzyme, glutathione (notice I didn’t say supplement, it’s our ENZYME.) is our most important powerhouse antioxidant.
