Glutathione is the only intracellular antioxidant found, which means it
acts inside the cells. As such it is able to maintain their health and
performance and resist disease by neutralizing free radicals and keeping
other antioxidants, including Vitamin C and E, in their active form. It
also helps the liver to process toxins, helps with DNA and protein
synthesis, and regulates both the nitric oxide cycle and the metabolism of
* Several studies of centenarians (humans who have lived to be over 100
years old) in various countries, including Poland, Italy, and Denmark,
have found very high levels of glutathione in their cells.
Penn State University Study:
The Penn State Medical School conducted a human clinical trial
using oral glutathione among 54 healthy adults (41 females/13 males), 28 to
72 years of age. They were divided into two groups, both supplementing
glutathione. But one group was low dose, 250 mg/day, and the other group
took 1,000 mg/day. They ran the trial for six months to determine before
and after GSH readings and immune system marker differences.
After only three months, the high dose group showed over two-fold
improvements in natural killer cell activity. And after the full six
months, overall GSH had increased 35% in the high dose group. After one
month without supplements, most subjects’ GSH levels dropped back to before
trial baseline levels.
The Penn State researchers concluded that
“that long-term oral administration GSH is an effective means of
enhancing body stores of GSH.”

Who will benefit from taking Glutathione?
Everyone will, very simply put, glutathione is the most prolific defense a
body can have. Developed in every living cell, over millions of years this
molecule is the most natural way our bodies know how to protect themselves.
As a young person who is healthy, glutathione supplementation is important
to maintain those high glutathione levels and is the best course of
prevention someone can take. As you age, your glutathione levels drop
dramatically, making it extremely important for sick or elderly people to
supplement their levels to ensure good health and quality of life. After
age 20 glutathione levels begin to drop, making it a universally important
supplement. Glutathione benefits are numerous; it affects every cell in the
body and is critical to the health and function of each of those cells.
Can children take Glutathione?
Yes, just because levels don’t begin to drop dramatically until, after age
20, our modern environment bombards the body with toxins and depletes
glutathione levels in everyone. Children whom you are supplementing with
glutathione will be building a strong immune system that will fight off
infection and not allow the buildup of heavy metals in the body. Reducing
the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s drastically.
Can elderly people take Glutathione?
They can and should be. A lifetime of exposure to toxins and radiation
builds up in the body, making elderly people extremely at risk of
developing health issues. Coupled with depleting levels of glutathione it
is inevitable that illnesses will occur.
