Can Glutathione Help Your Healing?

Glutathione, Master Cell Protector, Master Antioxidant

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670

Cellgevity contains the natural glutathione-enhancing supplement that we need to fight cellular inflammation, chemical and biological toxins, as well as free radicals.

Every waking or sleeping moment, our bodies are undergoing constant biological attacks and warfares - from resisting viruses and bacterias, to smothering that cold, to countering over-exertion and excessive build up damage. To add to the list includes chemical toxins, heavy metals, free radical and radiation.

What all these do is they damage cells, limiting function to sub-optimal (or worse, poor cellular function); globally, this accelerates the dying/decay/ageing process, triggering the onset of diseases, damage and disabilities that are associated with ageing.

What glutathione does is that it defends our cells, at a cellular level, from these destructive oxidative agents.

A Quick Summary of Glutathione’s Benefits:

  • Master Antioxidant - Recycles existing/used antioxidants
  • Primary Detoxifier of the Cell (removes toxin, decreases poisoning)
  • Powerful Chelator of Heavy Metals
  • Protects the Immune Cell (keeps immunity tip top)
  • Protector of Mitochondrial DNA (constant efficient energy)
  • Protector of the Nucleus of the Cell (nucleus is like a brain to a cell; a healthy nucleus = healthy cell)
  • Reduces Oxidative Stress (preventing cancer and aging)
  • Reduces Intercellular Inflammation
  • Is The Re-Utlizing Agent of Ingested Antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C and E)
  • Reducing Agent for Haemoglobin, Allowing it to Transport Oxygen to Every Cell

Currently there is more than 98,000 scientific studies and articles on glutathione recorded to PubMed, the official U.S. Government library of medical research, with newer research articles added daily.What this means is that there is a lot of potential, hope into the function, role and power of glutathione in the protection of our cells and how it helps in ensuring optimal health and function.

Studies also show that people with higher glutathione levels:

  • Have More Energy
  • Recover Faster From Exercise
  • Sleep Better At Night
  • Have Greater Mental Clarity and Focus
  • Have Less Inflammation and Pain
  • Improve Joint Function and Integrity
  • Have Better Immune Systems and Fall Sick Less Often
  • Improve Health & Function of Every Cell, Tissue And Organ In The Body

At the same time, they also show the terrible consequences of low levels in individuals, and how those lower levels accelerate the aging process and increase vulnerability to the issues and problems related to aging.

Here’s the problem: our glutathione levels in our bodies decrease about 10% - 12% every 10 years…but the amount of attacks on our cells do not decrease.

As we grow older, our natural production dips an average of 1-1.2% per year. As this happens, our energy levels start to dip and we start to become more tired than before doing the same stuff at the same intensity. Inflammatory levels spike at all cellular, tissue and organ level, causing us to have frequent bouts of illnesses and disease. To make matters worse, each time we get injured, infected or contract a disease, it wipes out more of our already-decreasing levels.

What are some conditions associated with low levels in an individual?

Higher oxidative stress levels, ADD, AIDS, ALS, Arthritis, Asthma, Autism, Cancer, Diabetes, Hepatitis B, Infections, Liver Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Eczema, Alzheimer’s Disease (dementia), Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Stroke, Hepatic Dysfunction, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Neurogenerative Diseases, Parkinson’s Disease

A More In-Depth Look At GSH

Glutathione (GSH) is an antioxidant, it prevents damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.

How it works is that it is a carrier of electron and works by donating an electron to an antioxidant that is destabilized resulting in a renewed antioxidant (that’s why it’s dubbed the master antioxidant).

When it donates its electron, it becomes a disulphide GSSG. GSSG can be activated back to become glutathione reductase using the NADPH process as an electron donor, and thus the cycle of recycling antioxidants work, and that’s the beauty of glutathione.

Although it is created naturally by our physical bodies, the production decreases on average of 1-1.2% per year. This may seem insignificant, but if we take a closer look at it, factoring in the fact that the amount of destructive agents we are exposed to daily, plus the fact that our gluthathione level depletes over time - is a recipe for disaster - just a waiting game.

It has multiple functions:

  • It is the primary/major endogenous antioxidant produced by our cells for our cells, which serves directly to neutralize free radicals and reactive oxygen compounds, as well as maintaining exogenous antioxidants such as vitamin C and E in their reduced forms.
  • It regulates the nitric oxide cycle, which is crucial for life
  • It’s used in metabolic and biochemical processes such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, prostaglandin synthesis, amino acids transport and enzyme activation (this means that every system in the body is affected by the glutathione system; primarily the immune system, the nervous system, the gastrointestinal system and the cardiovascular system)
  • Vital function in the metabolism of iron. Yeast cells that are depleted or containing toxic levels of GSH features intense iron-starved-like-mode and followed by impairment of extra-mitochondrial enzymes…followed by death.

Supplementation

I recommend Xtend-Life's Zupafood For Skin (read review here) for many different reasons.

First of all, their products are made in their own manufacturing facility, which is cGMP-compliant. cGMP is a rigid set of standards that covers everything from purity of ingredients, bottling procedures, cleanliness of facility, training protocols, and much more.

Also, it is a real mark of achievement that signifies that it is a real mark of product quality. Xtend-Life also makes their products in a FDA-certified facility as well. When coupled with GMP certification, this is a product made with highly-rigorous standards.

Zupafood for SKIN Features & Benefits

Xtend-Life says if it’s used consistently, it will:

  • “Youth-ify” your skin and make you look younger
  • Strengthen your skin
  • Improves your skin hydration
  • Strengthens skin and provides a natural “lift,” which is ideal for those 50 or older who are dealing with less supple skin
  • Limits and minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • “Feeds” the skin with much-needed nutrition

To a certain extend, the Zupafood for Skin mirrors meal replacement products available on the market but that's not at all — it is an supplementary nutritional product, and its main functions is that it will improve one’s skin but its impressive nutritional profile and ingredient list make it a lot more.

Back to the product, the Xtend-Life company says it can offer this list of health benefits due to its unique ingredient formulation. The ingredients that this product has are:

  • Kiwi fruit
  • Grapeseed extract
  • Red grape skin extract
  • Apple fiber
  • Green tea extract
  • Collactive marine collagen
  • Elastin polypeptides
  • Aquamine TG

Lastly, “filler” ingredients are

  • Natural Blueberry
  • Malic Acid
  • Citric Acid
  • Natural Sweetener (Stevia Glycosides).

What brings this formula together is the combination of marine collagen and aquamine TG. The other ingredients are every effective by themselves (especially grapeseed extract and green tea extract) but they are more complementary/supplementary to the formula.

Collactive marine collagen and elastin polypeptides “Collactive™ is made of low molecular weight marine collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio as the dermis in human skin.” Aquamine TG, too, has some powerful health advantages in it.

It’s a sea-based plant source that is abundant in magnesium (a vital mineral), calcium as well as 74 other trace minerals so vital to the human organism regardless of your gender or age.

It comes from the red algae, Lithothamnion species, which is very rare.

Deficiencies

includes but is not limited to: HIV/AIDS, chemical and infectious hepatitis, myalgic encephalomyelitis chronic fatigue syndrome ME / CFS, prostate and other cancers, cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, radiation poisoning, malnutritive states, arduous physical stress, and aging, and has been associated with suboptimal immune response. Many clinical pathologies are associated with oxidative stress and are elaborated upon in numerous medical references. Lower/lowered levels is also strongly seen in wasting and negative nitrogen balance seen in cancer, AIDS, sepsis, trauma, burns and even athletic overtraining. In this cases, glutathione supplementation can reduce and oppose those processes, and in a study of AIDS, there has been data that revealed improved survival rates.

Mental Health

Schizophrenia and bipolar disorders are associated with lowered levels of GSH. Data suggests that oxidative stress may be a factor underlying the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia. Diminished GSH levels increases cellular vulnerability towards oxidative stress and replenishment of glutathione using N-acetyle cysteine has been shown to reduce symptoms of both disorders.

Cancer

Read on GSH in cancer prevention and treatment here.

There is some preliminary results that indicate glutathione changes the level of reactive oxygen species in isolated cells grown in a lab, which may reduce/diminish/cut down on cancer progression, though it has not been tested on a human. One thing that was noted is that in a person who already has cancer who has developed resistance to a number of chemotherapeutic drugs, by increasing the glutathione in the body, the bone marrow, breast, colon, larynx and lungs were protected from cancers.
