Making Glutathione Orally Available

Glutathione is the most potent and most important antioxidant compound and detoxifying agent produced in the cytoplasm of every cell of the human body.

Because it is in every cell, it has been termed “the master molecule of the human body”. Because of its central role in detoxification, approximately 25% of all the body’s glutathione resides in the liver alone. Glutathione is also concentrated in the kidneys and in mucosal secretions of the intestinal linings and lungs. It is present inside cells and in extracellular fluids.

Glutathione is a tripeptide molecule, composed of these amino acids: glutamate, cysteine, and glycine. The pool of glutathione in the human body is constantly in flux. The reduced form of glutathione (GSH) is the biologically active form. Lonicera Longevity features the Longevity Amino Acid blend that instructs the body to produce the best of GSH in adequate quantities needed for the best of health.

This master molecule is a whiz at neutralizing lipid peroxides, hydrogen peroxide and other reactive oxygen species. Free radicals are a necessary waste product of cellular energy production, but our cells must rid themselves of this waste or succumb to the ravaging effects of oxidative damage. Lonicera Longevity proactively provides the cells with the necessary tools to keep GSH maximized and to suppress all free radicals. Adequate glutathione is not just desirable, it is essential to the survival of each cell, making it essential to life itself.

More than 100,000 studies have been published related to the physiologic effects of glutathione. This master molecule is the protector extraordinaire! It is needed to detoxify harmful chemicals and toxins – including alcohol, pesticides and carcinogens. It is necessary to keep the immune system at peak performance. It supports healthy aging and is an anti-aging compound necessary for longevity. Glutathione even can regenerate other antioxidants. Glutathione plays an important role in immune function by stimulating natural killer (NK) cell function and boosting the master control center of the immune system (called the thymus gland) to produce healthier T-cells and other white blood cells.

When glutathione levels drop, the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke increase. People with Parkinson’s disease all have substantially lower levels of glutathione in the brain. Diminishing levels of GSH are associated with age-related cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, so it is a crucial nutrient for the eyes. I suspect glutathione depletion is implicated in the progression of cancer.

If you don’t give your body glutathione precursors on a routine basis, the body will begin to sequester the necessary amino acids from the muscle; this leads to sarcopenia (wasting of muscles). Remember, the heart is the most important muscle in the body.
