This taste-free capsule is perfect for those just starting out with glutathione – no more sulfur taste! Optimal Glutathione will provide you with the tools to support your healthy stress responses and defenses, to help you feel resilient against the world’s toxins!*
Glutathione is an antioxidant so powerful it’s referred to as the body’s ‘master’ antioxidant. It plays crucial roles in the following detox and defense systems in your body*:
Healthy aging and stress response
Healthy immune system function
Healthy free-radical and peroxide defenses
Normal heavy metal detoxification, including arsenic
Normal liver regeneration and protection
Identifying certain molecules for elimination via the liver
Specifically, glutathione works because of its functionality in neutralizing free radicals, also known as oxidative stress. It is naturally produced by your body in your glutathione pathway. If your GST/GPX genes are dirty, then your glutathione levels are likely low. Glutathione is formed by the enzyme GSS to be used by the enzymes GST/GPX for neutralizing oxidative stress throughout the body. The glutathione is then recycled (reduced) back through the GSR enzyme, where the cycle repeats.*
However, with every day stress and occasional illness, or simply as you age, glutathione levels are constantly used up (oxidized) and depleted. This means that oxide levels increase, such as hydrogen peroxide, putting toxic stress on your other enzymatic pathways, including the methylation cycle, liver detox phases, and in the mitochondria (energy production). Depletion of your naturally occurring glutathione levels may make you feel fatigued, toxic, foggy headed, experience premature signs of aging, and an exacerbation of other symptoms.*
You need a solution that both supports your glutathione levels, but is gentle and easy to dose. Optimal Glutathione is perfect for those just starting out with glutathione supplementation and need a comfortable dose that is taste-free! This formula uses S-Acetyl Glutathione, which mimics a fat-soluble delivery method that is protected from stomach acid damage. This unique formulation makes for optimal absorption in a capsule form compared to reduced glutathione. *
Optimal Glutathione can be taken with or without food. Take 1 capsule daily when needed, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Dr. Ben Lynch recommends starting out small and increasing your dosage only if needed.
Your body naturally produces glutathione. Dr. Lynch recommends following the Pulse Method as outlined in his national bestselling book, Dirty Genes to optimize your body’s natural production of this nutrient.
