Glutathione is one of the bodys main antioxidants and has wide benefits. It is an immune booster, slows the aging process, protecting against many degenerative conditions and heavy metal toxicity. For 10 or more years glutathione injections have been used for mercury poisoning, alzheimers, and parkinsons with excellent results. Doctors routinely use Glutathione-promoting drugs to detoxify victims of certain types of drug overdose. However, the pharmaceutical drugs that raise Glutathione levels produce side effects and cannot safely be used long-term.
Raising Glutathione levels during cancer treatment leads to fewer side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, and even loss of white blood cells. Higher Glutathione levels speeds the healing process, reduces the possibility of infection, and helps to release drugs and anesthesia from the body. Glutathione protects DNA and RNA from free radical damage, and it protects against cellular peroxidation caused by exposure to pesticides, plastics, benzene and carbon tetrachloride, as well as heavy metals, cigarette smoke, smog, drugs, solvents, dyes, phenols and nitrates. There is no doubt that glutathione is something you want in your health arsenal!
The only problem is that it has been notoriously difficult to supplement orally, as it is broken down by digestion. Even intravenous injections are broken down rapidly and the blood levels of glutathione return to their previous level after only 24 hrs. If you want to keep the levels up you have to have regular injections at a whopping $200 each! The only other way previously shown effective to increase glutathione was by taking large quantities of whey protein. Both of these methods have been shown to increase glutathione by around 30%.
I was very excited to see the research done on glutathione levels using LifeWave patches. The increase is 300%! This is absolutely spectacular, plus the levels are more constant so the body remains protected.
