The master of all antioxidants

Glutathione is commonly known as the master of all antioxidants. It plays a significant role in protecting your immune system on a cellular level.  In short, molecules known as free radicals develop in your body and seek other cells to help them stabilise.

In the process, free radicals effectively damage and destroy other cells in your body. The result is a weaker immune system as the immune cells which help the body resist disease, can be destroyed. So then the question is: “What is Glutathione and how does it help my immune system?”

What is Glutathione/Detox +?

Glutathione is also known as GSH (a scientific abbreviation) which is particularly essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant made up of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine and glutamate. These three amino acids are naturally produced by the liver and are vital in stopping free radicals from damaging the immune cells.

Studies have shown that Glutathione has a direct role in anti-viral activities. This is because Glutathione hinders the replication of virus cells by stimulating the production of specific white blood cells, known as T-cells. These T-cells target any cells that have been infected by a virus.

What are the benefits of Glutathione/Detox +?

Because Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress and protects cells from destruction, it has several benefits including:

  • Protecting proteins, DNA and cells from damage
  • Improving immune system health
  • Can help you lose weight
  • Preventing cell damage that can occur from several different diseases

Detox + IV treatments

As mentioned earlier, your age and a variety of lifestyle factors can influence your levels of Glutathione. Various factors can also limit your levels of vitamin C. IV Klinik’s Detox + IV treatments are supplemented with vitamin C to maximise the benefit to your immune health. If your immune health needs some TLC, you should consider one of our Detox + IV treatments.

Whilst a healthy diet is a great start, cooking and food storage will reduce or even destroy nutrients. Furthermore, your digestive system’s ability to absorb nutrients can also limit your overall nutrient intake. That’s why IV treatments can assist with enhanced nutrient absorption.

The nutrients received from IV treatments are far more absorbable when delivered directly into your bloodstream as they bypass any absorption restriction of your digestive system. As a result, you can easily receive the full benefits of the nutrients you may be lacking to improve your overall health and well-being.

Do you have enough glutathione/Detox +?

Your body naturally makes its own glutathione. However, sometimes, it can’t keep up with the demand or it uses the stores available faster than they can be replenished. Your Glutathione levels can also be affected by other underlying conditions:

  • Chronic Inflammation from diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity
  • Aging
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Insomnia and poor sleep habits
  • Alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Chronic stress
  • Toxins

What affects Glutathione/Detox + levels?

Unfortunately, as you age, your levels of naturally produced Glutathione decrease. Additionally, exposure to a poor diet, alcohol, stress, trauma, medications, infections, toxins and radiation can also negatively impact your levels of Glutathione. It is important to understand what influences your levels of Glutathione which in turn influences your immune system functionality.

What foods are high in Glutathione/Detox +?

Once you understand how your lifestyle or age affects your Glutathione levels, you should understand what helps to build those levels. Remember, it is important to understand how your lifestyle can influence levels because it can also limit your digestive system’s ability to absorb the nutrients from various foods. Additionally, nutrients from foods can be destroyed or diminished with cooking and storage.

Nevertheless, these are some of the foods that are high in Glutathione:

  • Almonds
  • Asparagus
  • Avocado
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Chives
  • Cucumber
  • Garlic
  • Melons
  • Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Walnuts

Does Glutathione/Detox + help you lose weight?

Yes, it is possible! A healthy level of Glutathione can help detoxify your body and might help increase your metabolism to burn fat. When there is a build-up of toxins in your body, you burn less calories and store more fat. Hence, by maintaining a healthy level of Glutathione, you detoxify your body and have the potential to lose weight far more easily.

Why should you take vitamin C with Glutathione/Detox +?

Glutathione also helps to maintain levels of Vitamin C by allowing the body to utilise it more efficiently by effectively reusing it. So while it is widely believed that Vitamin C is solely responsible for a healthy immune system and cellular function, it is the combination of both Vitamin C and Glutathione that should be considered. The combination of both entails the production of anti-virus T-cells and the more efficient and effective utilisation of vitamin C. Why should take vitamin C with Glutathione?

So, Vitamin C has a whole range of benefits but to unlock their full potential, glutathione is key. The benefits of vitamin C include:

  • Reducing inflammation and improving immune function (including wound healing cells)
  • Helps to maintain healthy skin, eyes, bones, digestive system, blood vessels, tendons and ligaments
  • Improving cardiovascular health

By using vitamin C with Glutathione, you maximise your potential to maintain a healthy functioning body and immune system.
