Avoiding excessive intake of pro-oxidants such as smoke, excessive alcohol, exposure to noxious chemicals or ultraviolet light, are a good start in the quest to minimize oxidative stress. The world in which we live, however, doesn’t always cooperate with us.
Most fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, and should be a part of your daily diet. And whenever possible avoid processed or preserved foods, and charred meats, which all can have negative oxidative effects on your body.
But Life Gets Busy…
It’s no secret getting proper nutrition can be challenging in the best of circumstances. And who among us wants to worry if he or she is pushing too hard during exercise or play. Add to that, the increased nutritional demands on athletes and active people. It is easy to find yourself behind in your body’s nutritional needs.
The Best Defense
Nothing is better for health than a diet of whole, fresh foods rich in antioxidants, adequate hydration, and plenty of sleep. Unfortunately, the reality is that the harder we work and play, the more we try to pack into our lives, the more our diet and sleep typically suffer.
Proper Supplementation with Glutathione…
Proper supplementation can help you bridge the gap between a “perfect diet” and your diet, and help keep you at your optimal health and strength.
The role of vitamin C and vitamin E is mainly for protection against oxidative stress on the cellular membrane. The concentration of both vitamin C and Vitamin E decreases by age, due to the decline of an internal anti-oxidant called glutathione, which decreases by age. Glutathione activates the inactive (oxidized) vitamin C, which in- turn activates the inactive (oxidized) vitamin E. The role of vitamin E is to protect the cellular membranes from free radical damage.
While glutathione is found in food, but its concentration does not significantly increase, neither through conventional food nor through oral supplementation. This is why GlutaGenic has developed two clinically effective routes of deliver: nebulization or suppository method. Each provides the body with stable, reduced glutathione that at the cellular level is highly absorbed and bio-available.
In 1996, an anti-oxidant researcher at University of Berkeley, California, Dr. Packer, a professor of molecular and cell biology discovered that R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, an anti-oxidant and an endogenous co-enzyme in the metabolism of glucose, significantly increases the internal production of glutathione, which re-energizes vitamin C and E. Increasing your levels of glutathione via proper supplementation can be your best defense against oxidative stress.
