Glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant, is often depleted by environmental toxins, health stressors, poor diet and more.
Glutathione may help improve your short-term brain function, long-term memory, and help protect against cognitive decline. It helps counterbalance inflammatory effects of toxins in the brain that inhibit optimal brain function. There’s even evidence that maintaining higher glutathione levels is associated with healthier aging of the brain and body. Other studies indicate that degenerative aging is associated with oxidative stress, a sign that glutathione levels are depleted.
Glutathione is needed to help bind and remove toxins from every tissue in your body. Some of the best evidence behind the powerful detoxifying effects of glutathione comes from drug research. Take Acetaminophen poisoning for instance (one of the most common drug related problems in developed countries).
Acetaminophen depletes mitochondrial glutathione levels, which makes them more vulnerable to oxidative stress. Doctors often use glutathione and its naturally powerful detoxifying properties to help protect against acetaminophen-related liver damage and to remove acetaminophen from their system. Studies have also shown that glutathione supplements may be useful in providing nutritional support during cancer treatment.
Mycotoxins, also known as mold toxins, are damaging compounds produced by various molds and fungi. They can cause cancer, brain damage, and heart, liver, and kidney disease. These mold toxins are almost everywhere in modern society, especially in food. It helps protect you against exposure to these toxins. In vitro, glutathione helped protect against the toxic effects of aflatoxin and fusarium, two of the most common mold toxins. Mold toxins are a serious, often unavoidable risk to health, but it’s one that this product can help reduce.
How It Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Glutathione plays a key role in counterbalancing inflammatory effects associated with compromised heart and artery health. People with high triglycerides typically have lower glutathione levels. When blood cells from people with compromised arteries are incubated with glutathione, they become less prone to stick together, which means the cells would be less likely to cause clots and heart issues.
Research has shown that glutathione supplements may help improve gut health by decreasing oxidative stress. This may help promote proper digestion and intestinal functions. Some research even suggests that glutathione may help support the gut issues in people who are gluten intolerant. Even small amounts of toxins can damage your gut and cause inflammation, brain fog, and lethargy. Upgraded Glutathione Force can help defend against these invaders and keep your gut functioning at full capacity.
Studies have found that glutathione supplements may help improve immune function by reducing oxidative stress in the immune system’s cells. Your body needs a strong immune system to fight off infections, while maintaining good control of its immune system to keep it from overreacting and causing damaging inflammation. Upgraded Glutathione Force increases your resilience by improving both of these factors for high performance.
Heavy metals like mercury damage cells and decrease performance. Heavy metals are present in many household items and in some cosmetics (some makeup and deodorant products) and foods (some fish). Glutathione helps detoxify mercury, cadmium, and arsenic in at least two ways: it increases the cells’ ability to resist the toxic effects of heavy metals, and it helps remove them from the body. The human body isn’t very good at getting rid of toxic heavy metals, so they often build-up and decrease performance. This product may help increase the resilience of cells to deal with heavy metals and eliminate heavy metals from the body.
Sometimes, you probably expose yourself to some toxins on purpose – like alcohol. There’s nothing wrong with a drink every now and then, but long-term alcohol consumption is not good for you. Alcohol depletes glutathione levels, and can make your cells more susceptible to oxidative stress. Upgraded Glutathione Force can help shield your body against the negative effects of alcohol, so when you do have a drink, it doesn’t decrease your performance as much as it would otherwise.
Inflammation is tied to aging, which may be why people with high glutathione levels tend to live longer than those with low levels. Some research indicates that damage to the power plants of your cells – the mitochondria, is a key factor in aging. Your body needs glutathione to protect your mitochondria, and when you don’t have enough, they can get damaged. This is especially true for liver cells. When mitochondria are low in glutathione, the liver is more susceptible to the negative effects of toxins.
