Glutathione is a Master Antioxidant
      This new old “wonder” supplement is called Glutathione. Glutathione is an amino-acid that has been known to help the body fight free radicals produced from pollutants found in the air, food and water. Today, it is more popularly known and much sought after for its skin lightening benefits. In increased dose, it is said to have a remarkable good ‘side effect’ on the skin. skin whitening and other skin enhancing and nourishing benefits.
     Dermatologists prescribe it to remove dark spots, prevent or get rid of pimples and pimple marks, take away or prevent wrinkles, and other beauty-related treatments. Its skin whitening regimen is widely used in Asia and has been reported to be the “Asia’s Most Prescribed Oral Skin Whitener” among the skin whitening products. It is often referred to as bleaching pill, bleaching capsule, whitening pill or whitening capsule. Many dermatologists use it.
     Oral administration of this supplement, taking in consideration the proper dosage, is said to help lighten one’s skin and give it a youthful sheen. How it works as skin whitener The inner layer of the skin called dermis and the outer surface which is visible to our eyes is the epidermis. The primary element that determines the color of human skin is the amount of melanin in the skin. And melanin is produced by a cell called melanocyte. In increased dose, glutathione helps whiten the skin by reducing melanocytes which then leads to reduction of melanin in the skin, making it look fairer. But this is not an overnight fix. It takes a little time to see initial change in one’s skin tone. That’s because glutathione’s whitening process starts from inside the skin (dermal layer) going outward (epidermal layer).
     The whitening process goes head to foot, meaning that one will have an evenly white skin tone in her whole body. It is estimated that by taking 2 capsules of 1000mg glutathione per day, one can see the results in two weeks time. However if one takes 1000mg once a day only, it would take a month for her to see and feel the results. Glutathione and Vitamin C Glutathione can be taken anytime of the day, preferably before meal time because it is best utilized when taken in an empty stomach. When one takes
     Glutathione supplements however, it is very likely that the body will oxidize the Glutathione. “Oxidized Glutathione” reduces the effectiveness Glutathione as an anti-oxidant, anti-aging or a skin whitening agent. This “oxidation process” can be prevented by taking Vitamin C. Not only that, Vitamin C also helps raise the level of Glutathione by helping the body manufacture it. According to recent research, a person taking Glutathione should take two to three times more Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) than the dose of Glutathione.
     More than just a beauty product The recent popularity of Glutathione as a wonder skin whitener has overshadowed its other health boosting benefits! Unlike any other whitening pills / capsules, glutathione doesn’t just whiten the skin, it is also an anti oxidant and anti-aging pill which is important for overall good health and long life. A closer look at glutathione What exactly is this wonder nutrient? Glutathione is a small protein composed of 3 amino acids called cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine to help the body respond to the environment such as pollution in the air we breath, water we drink, chemicals and pesticides in the food we eat that cause damages in our cells and system.
     Dubbed as the Master Antioxidant, it regulates the actions of lesser antioxidants such as vitamin C, and vitamin E within the body. It is present mostly in liver where it detoxifies many harmful compounds which are then excreted through the bile, red and white blood cells, lungs and intestinal tract. A major free radical scavenger enzyme, it helps prevent cancer especially liver cancer, essential for the functioning of the immune system, protect individual cell and tissues of arteries, brain, heart, immune cells, and kidneys. Anti-viral too Paul Cheney, M.D., Ph.D. and expert in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome says that “Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties – if tissue and serum glutathione levels are significantly increased, the replication of most pathogens are slowed or stopped. Conversely, glutathione deficiency produces a pro-viral effect.” Sources that boost your body’s natural production of Glutathione. Glutathione is manufactured inside our cells.
     Our cell’s ability to make glutathione is directly determined by the supply of raw materials, in particular, the amino acid cysteine. Cysteine can be found in meat, red peppers, garlic, onions, broccoli, brussel sprouts, oats, milk, whey protein, and wheat germ. However, it can usually be produced by the human body under normal physiological conditions if a sufficient quantity of methionine is available. When your body is deficient in glutathione Without the protection of Glutathione, our cells will die at a faster rate, making us age quicker and putting us at risk for all kinds of toxin-induced diseases. A deficiency of glutathione can cause destruction of red blood cells, leading to anemia and oxidative stress and brain cell death and Parkinson’s Disease.
     Other health conditions that are associated with glutathione deficiency include diabetes, low sperm counts, liver disease, cataracts, and HIV infection, respiratory distress syndrome, cancer, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. A research study done by Eric Topol, MD and published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that abnormally low glutathione levels may increase the risk of heart attack. Bad news for smokers, too, Cigarette smoking helps reduce the level of glutathione in the body. Reduced levels of glutathione increase the risk of health problems and health problems deplete the supply of glutathione in the body. It’s a vicious cycle. Side Effects What about serious side-effects?
     Studies show that there have been no noted untoward side effects of Glutathione. In fact as we noted earlier, SKIN WHITENING is the “SIDE-EFFECT” of Glutathione! So it is probably safe to add Glutathione to your daily habit of taking supplements. In fact, it’s not only safe, it will make your vitamins and other nutrients work even better because Glutathione is the master oxidant. Overdose? No danger, because, the more you take glutathione, the lighter your skin will appear!
