Glutathione: The Amazing Supplement Your Doctor Doesn't Know About
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants your body needs in order to stay healthy and help prevent disease.

Glutathione helps prevent aging, cancer, dementia, and heart disease.

This superpower antioxidant also neutralizes free radicals, boosts your immune system and helps detoxify your liver.

Glutathione is naturally produced in your liver and found in every cell of your body (and can be found in other foods); but, unhealthy foods you may be eating, pollution, stress, aging, certain medications, and toxins can cause your body to under-produce glutathione. Unfortunately, even if you're staying away from the list above, as you age, your glutathione levels begin to deteriorate. The levels in your body can drop up to 50 percent below optimal level as you continue to age.

What are some ways you can restore glutathione in your body?

Even though glutathione can be found in foods and supplement form, it's not always effective in these forms. By the time it's digested, most of the supplement is turned into an inactive form and there's not enough to actually replenish the glutathione in your body.

But, there is some good news. Doctors have been working tirelessly to find a way that fully restores your glutathione levels. Doctors have come up with sublingual glutathione, which improves the ratio of inactive to active glutathione levels in your body.

What else do you need to know about glutathione?

Cheryl Myers, RN, explains the powerful systemic benefits of this ultimate antioxidant and how it can help anything from neurological disorders to estrogen metabolism.
