Have you heard of it? Maybe. Can you pronounce it? Up for debate. But one thing we’re sure of is that it is extremely important for your health. It’s even called the “mother of all antioxidants” — and rightfully so. This critical compound fights signs of aging, prevents diseases, and helps with detoxification. It’s your body’s unsung hero.
Radical Support: The main function of glutathione is to recycle other antioxidants like vitamins C and E. Together, they form an army that defends your body against free radicals. Free radicals, by the way, are highly reactive molecules that can damage your cells, paving the way for aging and disease. The good news is that the antioxidants will swoop in and neutralize them before any harm is done.
Jack of All Trades: Along with boosting your immune system, glutathione’s powers include increasing your energy, reducing muscle recovery time, improving your quality of sleep, and sharpening your mental focus. That’s quite the impressive resume.
Personal Bodyguard: Glutathione takes its job extremely seriously. Ever so loyal, it sacrifices itself just to detoxify you. Radicals, toxins and heavy metals all bind to it because of its sulfurous makeup. Then, it all gets eliminated from your body — glutathione included.
Normally, glutathione is naturally replenished — no worries there. But toxin overload can overwhelm this process. Plus, our glutathione levels start to decrease as we age. That’s a big deal because deficiencies are linked to serious illnesses like cancer, heart disease, and chronic fatigue syndrome. What can you do? Well, it’s all about being proactive.
- Improve your diet. As a rule of thumb, fruits and veggies generally have moderate to high levels of glutathione. And foods like broccoli, cauliflower, garlic and onions are all rich in sulfur, which is a building block of the compound.
- Get up and get moving. Exercise is linked to increased glutathione. So, put that gym membership to good use, whether you’re weight training or going to a pilates class.
- Avoid toxins to the best of your ability. This includes chemicals, pesticides, and artificial ingredients.
