Glutathione (500mg) Overview

Liver support and detoxification are increasingly common concerns among the health conscious. Many feel that simply focusing on obtaining all the right nutrients is only one part of the health equation; it may be just as important to support the body's removal of wastes. To live in the modern world is to be under a nearly-constant assault from industrial chemicals, environmental toxins, impurities in our food, water and air, drugs and other substances. The liver bears the greatest burden among the different detoxification mechanisms in the body (kidneys, GI tract, etc). Detoxification can involve these other mechanisms too, but the liver should be the focus of any detox program. And a key factor in the liver's detoxification processes is the tripeptide glutathione.

Glutathione is so important because it forms the basis of a key antioxidant and detoxification enzyme, glutathione peroxidase. This enzyme is able to detoxify a very wide range of harmful compounds, but there are limits on how much the body can manufacture in a given period of time. So increasing glutathione production would be a great way to increase detoxification. Taking a glutathione supplement may be one way of accomplishing this.

Reduced glutathione supplements such as NOW Foods' Glutathione have only become available recently, and are welcome additions to the short list of legitimate liver-support substances such as milk thistle extracts, n-acetyl-cysteine and alpha lipoic acid. There is debate about whether oral glutathione supplements actually raise blood and tissue levels of glutathione. Animal studies show that the more tissues are depleted of glutathione, the more glutathione is absorbed. Taking glutathione precursors like cysteine has been shown to do that; if any glutathione is broken down during digestion, it will be broken down into glutathione precursors, which can then be used to make more glutathione.

There is no debate, however, about the reduced form of glutathione being the most desirable form. NOW's Glutathione is a reduced glutathione supplement and with NOW's reputation for purity and potency, this would be a good choice for anyone looking to support their liver's detoxification functions. NOW Glutathione is actually more thanjust gltathione, it's a complete liver support complex with alpha lipoic acid as well as the documented liver support herb milk thistle extract.

How well does NOW Glutathione work? It's hard to quantify the results of a detox product, or the toxic load on the body at any given time. The physical symptoms of toxicity and even detoxing are highly variable. That's why it may be hard to evaluate how well a product like NOW Glutathione is working. But some common effects noticed by those reducing their toxic load are improvements in energy levels, improvements in the condition of skin, appetite regulation and improved mood and clearer thinking. NOW Glutathione is very safe and easy to use. You can't do much about toxins in the environment but you can better protect yourself from any potential harm by using NOW Glutathione whenever you need or want liver support. NOW Foods Reduced Glutathione is available in 250 mg and 500 mg potencies.

Glutathione (500mg) Description from Now
Glutathione is a tripeptide, consisting of the three amino acids, cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Glutathione is found and manufactured in ever cell in the body, but is found in highest concentrations in the heart, muscle tissue and the liver. Glutathione is critical for healthy immune system functions and necessary for various liver detoxification processes. Glutathione also acts as an antioxidant that acts to prevent oxidative stress in most cells and help to trap free radicals that can damage DNA and RNA. Milk Thistle Extract and Alpha Lipoic Acid are included to enhance Glutathione’s liver supporting properties.

E F F E C T I V E - Peroid!

Where do I begin, oh IT'S EFFECTIVE! If you've been trying to shed pounds - MAKE IT SO! Yes it can (from my experience) accelerate your efforts - uh yes, you still need to apply EFFORT. Unexpectedly! My eyesight has imporved (clarity), not much - just noticeable, but hey I JUST started taking it. From everything i've read GLUTATHIONE is much needed by modern urban dwellers - hey, why wait for a critical illness to take hold - USE IT NOW! TIP; Open the GLUTATHIONE V-Cap and add to some to foods in simmering mode/absorption mode (RICE, BEANS etc.) - this SHOULD increase the uptake into the digestive track, thus enhancing / speeding up results. (onions and garlic can be used to hide any possible unpleasant flavors.(2 V-Caps Per Cup). MY DISCLAIMER; The above tip, i've given in hopes that anyone in need of expediant positive results will achieve them. YOU and YOU alone are responsible for all and any (possible) resulting negative effects on your person. I shall bear NO LIABILITY if ANY neagative issues arise. HOWEVER when you experience fantastic positive results (and you'd better), you can give this reviewer ALL due credit LOL!

Great detox product; Glutathione with milk thistle and lipoic acid

Glutathione is an important antioxidant and detox compound in the liver. But glutathione supplements don't raise blood or liver levels directly since it breaks down in the stomach. It has been shown however, that taking glutathione precursors like cysteine and lipoic acid can increase glutathione synthesis. So because glutathione supplements break down into the same compounds shown to produce new glutathione, logically this product stands a good chance of raising liver levels. With the inclusion of milk thistle,this is a great all-in-one product to help cleanse the liver, especially if you've been taking medications, or consuming a lot of alcohol.
