Fight Aging with the Amazing Antioxidant, Glutathione

The way that glutathione works is that it attaches to toxins in the blood or the liver. Once the glutathione carries the toxins in the liver it moves on into the bile and goes onto the intestines through the bile duct in bile, where it moves out through the intestines. This is where I need to give a warning on glutathione. Your liver and bile duct must be in working order and your bile needs to be thin enough for it to move on out. For glutathione to do its job a liver detox may be in order. Light stools is a good indication of lack of bile because bile darkens the stool.

I have personal experience with this. I went to a doctor and took some glutathione through IV and it seemed to do nothing. I started coffee enemas and bitter herbs to increase the liver function and after a month I went back to the doctor for another IV of glutathione. This time all sorts of benefits became noticeable. It was like night and day between the two. It became a very good experiment to show how glutathione works in my body. I deal with mercury and its affect as well as other toxins. If you are dealing with the affects as well, you should know that glutathione should be part of the mercury detox but you should know that there is, what Dr. Shade calls, three phases, shown here;

This chart by Dr. Shade shows the 3 phases and how it should work and when it doesn't work. You take the mercury out of the cell in the first phase. Then it is carried through the blood to the liver or kidneys in the second phase. Finally it moves through the liver, into the bile duct and into the intestines in the last phase. If you use an intestinal metal sweep to lock onto the mercury it can be moved out of the intestines into the toilet. To start the detox it is best to work backwards in the 3 phases. Start with the liver by coffee enemas, herbs or red beet root. At the same time detox the kidneys with a good herbal cleaner that contains Didymocarpus pedicellata and Saxifraga ligulata. The next step would be to start the glutathione for the second phase so the mercury can move to the third phase. Lastly, in phase 1 you would take R-ALA, EDTA or if you can get one of the other things like DMSA so that the mercury can move to the last phase. If you do this you must be careful not to cut loose to much mercury, at any one time, as you will be bed ridden from the side effects of moving out the mercury. You also need to take 4 days off of phase 1 for every 3 days you do the phase 1 detox. I think that there is some other things that is overlooked by this approach. Mercury gets locked up in calcium. Your body may have stashed calcium in places it doesn't belong. Talking vitamin K2 can cause a clean out of calcium in the body as well as moving calcium to the bones. This will cut loose mercury that is attached to calcium so be careful of vitamin K2 or anything that dissolves calcium in the body. Next is the use of enzyme therapy. Enzymes can digest cysts and cancer tumors in the body and can release mercury. If you have done any of these things and it made you feel awful, this may be the reason why.

I know that glutathione is destroyed by stomach acid so I started with liposomal Glutathione but I have found Glutathione patches out there as well as Glutathione suppositories but they are all very expensive. Try a search of your own to see for yourself. I would like to try making a trans dermal glutathione using DMSO and glutathione as well as glutathione suppositories but I can't find anything on doing these things. So if you know anything or have done these things please post it here. I would love to hear from you. :)

Glutathione Side Effects

C: Here are some possibilities of what's happening.

1. Check the expiration date on the product, because amino acid supplements go bad within a yr of manufacture date, that is they begin growing bacteria. Keep refrigerated to extend life.

2. You could have a pre-condition of parasites or pathogens which would degrade the gth on contact.

3. Glutathione is an enzyme and thus not very well absorbed in the intestinal tract unless it is aided w/ support nutrients like Vit-C, B-6, digestive enzymes.

4. You may also have improper PH balance in the gut, most likely acidic; and if so will likely also have pancreatic insufficiency and further digestive problems.

As a side-note, if you are trying to boost detox by oral GTH the best way is by LET, otherwise you simply don't get much in your bloodstream. In this event, I recommend supplementing Broccoli Sprouts Extract, which are very well absorbed and very potent phase 1 & 2 detox system agonists, which stay in the body for up to 48 hrs, and also powerful anti-cancer and DNA repairer.

To naturally boost GTH take the mineral Selenium, amino acid NAC, and the hormone Melatonin (before retiring). The humble amino DMG will also complement the previous nutrients for maximum effect (increasing both detox & metabolism). CoQ10 is another nutrient that works great with the above.

Cecilia, if it's doing you good, how about taking just a quarter of a pill a day until you see you can add another quarter later in the day etc. without this side effect?

HI U CICILIA, , , , , , , , , , , I really don't think you can take Glutathione orally straight. I take it IV or through a nebulizer.

Our friend , Timh , can answer your question better than anyone I know.

Timh, answer this young lady's question. Where are you boy?

How to Raise Glutathione

ORH: Sorry for the delayed response but it's the best I can do for now.

As for boosting Glutathione, I will take a holistic approach to simply boosting overall antioxidant status overall. With optimal antioxidant nutrition levels, Glutathione will be recycled or not-depleted (as is what happens with disease or aging). So, before doing specifics for increasing Glutathione, do try and meet a minimal achievement of all other antioxidants. Here is a good article from Jon Barron on the subject

Now for the specifics. A list of Glutathione precursors.

--"Nondenatured" or native" whey protein products, contain bioavailable Cysteine much like NAC. OR NAC

--Methionine+B-12/Folic Acid+TMG OR SAM-e

--Selenium+Full Spectrim Vit-E+CoQ10


As for Liposomal Glutathione, from personal experience, it is absolutely best when combined w/ CoQ10. This synergistic effect is science based, they simply work together very well. Will soon be trying my second order of Reduced Glutathione and CoQ10. Am eager to compare Lipo to Nebulized versions. With my bad lung condition, the Nebulized GTH seems most promising and have some evidence of prior efficacy.

Not-to-forget the best natural source for Glutathione is Wheat Sprout Concentrate which also contains Catalase, Methionine Reductase, Superoxide Dismutase. Sulforaphane aka Indole-3-Carbinol or D-Limonene boost both phase 1+2 P-450 Detox Enzyme System (which includes Glutathione).

HI U Timh, , , , , , , , , , boy , you did yourself well if you watched this video. You are the Guru of liposomal of Gutathione.

Me , I do the compounded kind via a nebulizer. Just got too much going through my gut. It appears that Glutathione is the king bee as you get old. You produce it yourself all your life and it stops. Then, your body goes to heck along with your brain.

My friend, I think you will help lots of folks that are in deep sheet both physically and mentally if you will tell them again how to intake Gluthathione such that it again works in their old body as it did in their youth.

Yo ole Redneck buddy.

Hi Angelina... It is certainly expensive to take nutrients like Vitamin C and Glutathione by IV but it can be effective. But there are alternative and cheaper methods of internal delivery such as by the liposomal delivery of said nutrients.

Liposomal delivery involves completely enveloping the Vitamin C or Glutathione(in solution) into the center of a suitable nano-sized lipid sphere. When supplemented, this lipid/glutathione sphere takes the lipid or fat pathway into the blood. And because the lipid is of a similar form and constituency to the the body cells, the lipid spheres then automatically melds with the cell walls then opens up to directly deliver its contents -- vit c or glutathione -- directly into the cells. This is a very efficient method of delivery for nutrients to the cells because it takes the lipid pathway -- so you can normally ingest much larger amounts of glutathione or vitamin c using this liposomal delivery method which are comparable to IV delivery methods.

I've also read research that has discovered that larger amounts of vit c can be delivered to the cells by this liposomal method than by IV because there is no problem or danger with excess vitamin c causing problems in the blood -- because the vit c is always surrounded or at the center of the lipid sphere while in the blood.

It is true that liposomal glutathione is also somewhat expensive but you can perhaps make the liposomal glutathione form by the same method used for making the liposomal vitamin c form. You can actually do this at home -- you will need soluble glutathione powder, organic granulated lecithin and an ultra-sonic cleaner (as used for cleaning jewelery etc) -- see this link for a description of how to make liposomal vit c :

Ted or Bill or anyone who can answer this please. I have read that you can ONLY get glutathione into your system by taking precursers like ALA etc. However there are clinics out there that are giving glutathione by IV..

Will this work? I have read that it won't .. Call me confused or is it the clinics that are trying to take your hard earned $$. Thank you much...
