Glutathione - Why All the Hype?

What is it and Why all the Hype? Glutathione is a word that leaves a crowd's minds when they hear it, but there are more than 80,000 medical and scientific journal articles written on this topic. With time and its increasing popularity, it is one of the words that will eventually creep into our everyday language and become a household name.

One of the many factors for this growing popularity, it seems, has many beneficial benefits due to its natural properties and natural antioxidants.

How popular are you to say that? So popular that many mainstream health professionals like Dr. Oz has reported that the new antioxidant superhero is glutathione!

The reason is that glutathione is involved in many important functions including stimulating our immune system, detoxifying our long list of pollutants and carcinogens, and acting as our body's "master" antioxidant. Not to mention the glutathione-related roles of cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases, lung complications and the aging process itself are all documented in articles in medical literature. A very reliable source listing the benefits and studies of glutathione can be found in scientific articles published in pubmed.

In the meantime, many experts think that glutathione supplementation has been overlooked, and that this method can be as exciting as taking multivitamins daily. So how can we increase glutathione levels? First and foremost it is a common misconception, that you can take glutathione and consequently increase your body's level. Consuming glutathione-rich supplements or foods will not do the trick because most of them will be broken down into the digestive system and eliminated. The reason is that glutathione is naturally produced in your cells and the most effective way to produce glutathione is to deliver glutathione ("precursor") building blocks to your own cells.

So how do we effectively get a natural building block or precursor to our system? That's easy because an effective way is to take one dozen raw eggs for breakfast and five lbs of raw meat for lunch and you can wash it with a gallon of fresh milk straight from the cow every day.

This is the most effective way to take the amino acid "cysteine" which is the most difficult glutathione in our diet to survive from the mouth to the living cells. Cysteine ​​may be present in raw eggs and meat where heat does not alter the proteins that carry the cysteine ​​and lose their ability to transmit building blocks. The same goes for non-fermented milk. Not to mention you need to buy the cow !!

Is it okay about vegetables? Broccoli is a good source, but you will have to eat a bunch of fruits and suffer from all the gas that comes with a huge amount of consumption. Not good for your partner or important.

How about Whey Protein as an effective source? Whey protein is loaded with glutathione precursors but in the case of eggs and meat heat destroys the capacity of these proteins to increase glutathione efficiently as most whey proteins available on the market are subject to many pasteurization passes, which if you remember your high school biology, really a form of heating. Another side effect of whey, is that it may contain different amounts of fat and lactose, which for most people is absolutely fine if your lactose is intolerant.

Therefore, taking any whey protein formula is not enough, will not eat raw eggs and meat or drink milk from pasteurization, and clearly taking a glutathione diet will not be effective. What a dilemma!

However, there is a solution to this problem. Although glutathione building blocks in whey are extremely fragile, tactics for extracting this valuable protein have been developed and patented. This special whey formula begins with researchers at McGill University investigating this precursor of glutathione as early as the 1980s. The original research team led by Dr. Gustavo Bounous has finally discovered and modernized a special whey protein formula that can effectively pass this precursor to living cells.
