Hello readers, So, in this article I’m going to tell you about a substance that will help the health and body in many ways. This substance is called Glutathione.
It is a tri-peptide formed from Glutamic acid, Cysteine and Glycine and is generally produced in your body. The main function of It is as a powerful anti-oxidant removing various toxins and free radicals. It is the “Cysteine” that plays a central role in the functionality of L-Glutathione and a “Cysteine thiol” is a key of the function.
As we age, there is a constant drop in the Glutathione level in our body from our daily lifestyle. Some of the factors that cause a decrease in Glutathione levels are ultraviolet rays from sunshine. Heavy exercise, stress, alcohol, cigarettes, and environmental pollution.
Low Glutathione levels have been connected with many diseases associated with aging. Reduced Glutathione is produced primarily in the liver and distributed to other body parts through the blood stream. For many health conditions, the demand for Glutathione exceeds the production.
What are some of the ways to offset this drop?
There are various foods you can eat that contain this substance . For example, Rice , Fish, Bananas, Chicken, Spinach, Potatoes, Carrots, Tomatoes, and Beef. There are foods that can replenish the glutathione. However the glutathione from these foods in not sufficient.
Liver has a high Glutathione level but it’s not easy to get a continuous daily requirement.
Therefore, supplementation is necessary in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
