Anyone who is curious about how to live life as healthy as possible has likely read about the benefits of antioxidants. Found in many fruits and vegetables or taken as dietary supplements, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, antioxidants may prevent or delay cell damage. Antioxidants encompass Vitamins A, C, and E along with other compounds like selenium, lycopene and beta-carotene.
But are all these types of antioxidants equal? And if they are so ubiquitous in fruits and vegetables, can it really have a major effect on health for everyone?
There is one type of antioxidant that is in virtually every cell of the body and has stood out in research as playing a major role in regulating oxidative stress. Called glutathione, it has been referred to as the “master antioxidant,” because research has shown that a lack of it can play a role in cancer, diseases of aging, and cystic fibrosis, as well as cardiovascular, inflammatory, immune, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases.
In order words, what glutathione does at a cellular level may have the ability to impact overall health. As such, it may be particularly important to make sure your body is getting enough glutathione as you get older, because research has shown levels can decline with age.
So what are the ways to ensure the body has the glutathione it needs?
- Start by eating vegetables, particularly ones that contain sulfur like broccoli, cauliflower and kale. If you eat meat (beef, poultry and fish), then that can also help to increase glutathione levels.
- Pair glutathione with other immunity boosters like Vitamin C. Researchers found a link between Vitamin C supplementation and an increase in glutathione.
- Take a glutathione supplement to be sure. One example manufactured in the United States is called GlutaDoseWellness. GluatDose is packaged in a convenient liquid formulation in single-dose vials, so it’s easy to remember and travel with. GlutaDose also contains Vitamin C and Zinc, which can all work together to support the immune system and, it appears to support detoxification processes by making toxins water soluble for easier “flushing.”
So while the word “antioxidant” may seem like a buzz word, the crucial role of glutathione on cellular health has been demonstrated. As such, it may be worth seeing if it is right for you and discussing with a medical professional, who can provide individualized recommendations.
While it may have a role in overall wellness, like all dietary supplements, a glutathione supplement is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any particular disease.
