If you want to know how to feel good and age well, today’s episode is for you. Today, we’re talking about the number one antioxidant to increase for anti-aging: glutathione. Glutathione health benefits range from supporting radiant, glowing skin to reducing inflammation and fostering healthy detoxification.
This is our favorite antioxidant, and in this episode, we’re sharing natural ways you can get more of it. If you want to live your best life, you gotta get glutathione.
Glutathione is critical for detoxification and optimal health.
“It’s the [body’s] most important antioxidant because it’s within the cell.” – Gustavo Bounous, MD, retired professor of surgery at McGill University
Why is glutathione so important?
- Supports liver and gallbladder detoxification and optimal function
- Inhibits cancer progression
- Supports growth and repair of every cell
- May improve insulin sensitivity
- Reduces inflammation and risk of chronic disease
- Boosts healthy immune system function; promotes T-Cells
- Increases energy
- Slows down aging process
- Supports radiant glowing skin
- Reduces muscle and joint pain
Risks Factors of Low Glutathione
- High levels of stress
- Rapid aging
- Conventional lifestyle
- Nsaid use (Advil, Motrin, Aleve, Feldene etc.) and even Tylenol depletes glutathione levels
How to Increase Glutathione Nationally
- Whey protein
- Sulfuric foods (arugula, bok choy, broccoli, brussels, sprouts, cabbage, good greens powder)
- Foods high in selenium (yellow-fin tuna, brazil nuts, canned sardines, grass-fed beef, turkey, chicken, eggs, spinach, dark chocolate/cacao)
- Foods rich in Vitamins C & E (oranges, kale, red peppers, strawberries, grapefruit, almonds, spinach, sweet potato, avocado, sunflower seeds, good olive oil)
- Organ meats (beef liver)
- Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 (probiotic strain found to synthesize glutathione)
- Herbs (dandelion, burdock, goldenrod, milk thistle)
- L-Glutathione, Lipoic Acid, or Vitamin C – Liposomal form is the best! Because it can cross blood-brain barrier, increase bioavailability and nourish cell membranes
- Methylated Folate
- Vitamin D
- Green Tea
