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 iron.
* 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.
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.
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.
