What is Glutathione?
In today's world, it is all but impossible to escape exposure to the many different toxins, chemicals, pollutants, heavy metals, and drugs we come into contact with.
Stress, an unhealthy diet and environmental factors cause our body to lose the ability to produce sufficient amounts of glutathione, which is responsible for detoxifying and protecting its cells.
A glutathione deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of cell damage and consequently the body losing its ability to function optimally. This can mean lower energy levels and more frequent inflammation which can then lead to disease more easily developing and the natural ageing process being accelerated.
Glutathione is the body's most potent detoxifier and binder of heavy metals. It is the body's most important antioxidant. Glutathione binds and removes toxins from the liver reducing the toxin load on this vitally important organ. It helps protect the body's cells from damage from toxicity.
Why use S-Acetyl Glutathione tablets?
Conventional glutathione supplements need to be taken in high doses because they are mostly destroyed when they reach the gastrointestinal tract. S-Acetyl Glutathione largely overcomes this problem as the S-acetyl part of the molecule protects it.
S-Acetyl Glutathione is the first stable form of glutathione and is a potent, acetylated form that is better absorbed and remains stable throughout the digestive tract.
While the stomach acid-resistant vegetable capsule assures stability, laboratory data shows that S-Acetyl Glutathione increases intracellular glutathione and positively affects many biomarkers of oxidative stress.
Glutathione has been studied for several decades and is understood to have no safety concerns. It is a molecule produced naturally by the body. It is found in all cells to neutralise free radicals and aid our body's ability to detoxify. Glutathione has absolutely no negative side effects if taken as a supplement. As we age we the body naturally produces less glutathione resulting in the need for supplementation to counteract the high levels of toxicity in our polluted world.
S-Acetyl Glutathione: A Major Advance
Glutathione is found in all cells in the body, with the highest concentration located in the liver. Glutathione (GSH) is primarily composed of three amino acids: L-glutamine, L-glycine and L-cysteine.
Due to its health-promoting properties, boosting your glutathione levels is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, most supplements provide next to no benefit, because as mentioned earlier, only small amounts of glutathione enter the bloodstream, the majority is lost in the digestive tract.
The S-Acetyl Glutathione from Planet Source, on the other hand, is well-suited for oral ingestion, since it is not degraded in the digestive tract.
What is the recommended serving of S-Acetyl Glutathione tablets?
The recommended serving of S-Acetyl Glutathione tablets is 2 capsules per day. Due to their increased stability and effectiveness, S-Acetyl Glutathione supplements make a much cheaper option than traditional glutathione capsules.
What is Glutathione Good For?
Glutathione is the body’s most prolific antioxidant and detoxifying agent. Not only is it crucial for proper mitochondrial function and energy production, but it helps protect us from oxidative stress, battling free radicals and reactivating other powerful antioxidants. Some even believe it helps slow the ageing process.
Although our bodies produce glutathione naturally, our reserves diminish due to several factors including poor diet, stress, medication and a high toxin load. Dangerously low levels of glutathione have been recorded in individuals suffering from chronic illness and infection. This is due to the body’s tissues essentially ‘using up’ their supply of glutathione.
Unfortunately, glutathione reserves also decline bit by bit as we age, opening the door to many age-related health risks. If you're over 45, you are particularly likely to be deficient.
