What is Glutathione (GSH)?

GSHBanner

If you’re reading this, odds are you have seen the term “Glutathione” (GSH) before. But how much do you know about this powerful antioxidant? Do you know that it has been touted as the “next big antioxidant” or “the master defender” by health professionals world wide? If not, listen up.

Glutathione offers countless benefits related to joints, eyes, the brain and lungs. Yet, market research suggests that fewer than 6% of consumers are familiar with it. How could this be?

GSH is the most prevalent antioxidant produced by the human body. Healthy cells actually produce Glutathione. When cells run out of GSH, they die! GSH production naturally declines with age. So, supplementation of this vital antioxidant is paramount.

Glutathione

  • Helps protect cells from the damage caused by harmful free radicals
  • Promotes detoxification and optimal cellular health
  • Supports a healthy liver and immune system

Glutathione deficiencies have been linked to many chronic, difficult to treat illnesses. (Here is your chance to start that online search we mentioned earlier!). In addition to its powerful effects inside the body, Glutathione has been used for decades all over the world to improve skin clarity, tone and texture.

A study published in the European Journal of Nutrition revealed that daily supplementation of Setria® Glutathione – the form of L-Glutathione used in Lypo-Spheric™ Glutathione – is effective at increasing body stores of Glutathione by 30-35% over a 6 month period.

It’s probably time for you to give Gluathione a try. With our 100% money back guarantee, what have you got to lose?

Important Role of Vitamin C

Important Roles of Vitamin C

Many people assume Vitamin C is only required in tiny amounts; just enough to prevent scurvy. After all, this Vitamin C-deficiency disease spawned the chemical name ascorbate for Vitamin C. Ascorbate literally means “against scurvy.” Were this its only function, tiny amounts of Vitamin C would be sufficient for most people on the planet. But, there’s vastly more it can do.

Vitamin C is required in many essential metabolic processes – two of which we have highlighted below: Collagen Synthesis and Calcium Incorporation.

Collagen Synthesis

Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis and maintenance of collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body. Collagen comprises about 25% to 35% of the total protein content in the body. Its strong, connective, elongated fibrils are found in skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the intestines, and the discs between spinal vertebrae. It is also found in the cornea and in muscle tissue.

  • Vitamin C helps protect the skin by promoting the production and migration of fibroblasts that support normal wound healing.
  • VitaminC protects against skin wrinkles seen in premature aging.
  • Increased VitaminC uptake by vascular smooth muscle cells increases the synthesis and maturation of Type I (aka Type 1) collagen.  Type I collagen accounts for about 90% of the body’s total collagen content.
  • High concentrations of VitaminC stimulate synthesis of Type IV collagen, which has important filtration characteristics in the kidney, the blood-brain barrier, and the arterial lining .

Promotes Calcium Incorporation into Bone Tissue

The formation and maintenance of quality, high-density bone material requires Vitamin C. Vitamin C promotes assimilation of calcium into the bone, protects against leaching of calcium out of the bones, and fights the oxidative stress that works against assimilation.

  • Vitamin C stimulates the formation of the cells that incorporate calcium into bone tissue (osteoblasts).
  • VitaminC inhibits the development of cells that dissolve calcium out of bone tissues (osteoclasts).
  • As a powerful antioxidant, VitaminC fights oxidative stress in bone tissues.
  • Collagen cross-linking, required to form the dense matrix for optimal bone strength, requires Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is essential to numerous functions inside the body. We’ve just outlined two more reasons to get your daily dose!
