Glutathione Ultra contains a cutting-edge form of glutathione, S-acetyl glutathione, developed to overcome the poor effectiveness of reduced glutathione (GSH) supplementation. Finally a form of glutathione we can get behind!*
Glutathione is the backbone of the cellular antioxidant system and is important for natural detoxification processes, immunity, and cellular vitality.*
Glutathione is considered the leader of all antioxidants and is found in all cells. Sufficient tissue stores of glutathione keep your body protected and running smoothly in all facets.*
Glutathione levels in the body can be reduced by many factors including environmental toxins, stress, medications, pesticides, heavy metals, and poor nutrition. Glutathione production also declines with age and is lower in vegetarians and those with digestive concerns. Maintaining glutathione levels is essential for health.*
Absorption Breakthrough: S-Acetyl-Glutathione
Traditional oral reduced glutathione (GSH) has poor absorption and is broken down in the digestive tract before it can be used. However, recent advances in nutritional science have found ways to mitigate these concerns. A form of glutathione called S-acetyl-glutathione by-passes the difficulties of traditional oral glutathione and allows for rapid absorption and is able to get into tissues.*
We are excited to now offer this highly absorbable acetylated glutathione in our product line. It has enhanced bioavailability and increased stability. It is lactose-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher, and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Liver and Immune Function
The highest amounts of glutathione are found in the liver, followed by the immune system, and other tissues. Immune system regulation, defense and modulation and many other roles are directly impacted by glutathione.*
The liver depends upon glutathione to do its job in protection and detoxification of environmental toxins and endocrine disrupting compounds like pesticides, herbicides, plastics, heavy metals, medications, and internal metabolic waste. Glutathione is essential for healthy liver and immune system function.*
Glutathione is made up of three amino acids – cysteine, glutamine, and glycine. For many years, we have recommended taking n-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) to help your body make glutathione. NAC is in our Daily Protector Eye & Immune and Daily Detoxify supplements. Cysteine is in Activator Plus and Daily Protein.*
Several other nutrients help recycle or support glutathione production. These include vitamin B12, folate, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), betaine, magnesium, selenium, lipoic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin, milk thistle, green tea, whey protein, and other antioxidants. Glutathione also helps recycle these nutrients as they work synergistically together.*
Glutathione & Diet
Vegan and vegetarian diets, low protein diets, keto-diets, or extended fasting may contribute to inadequate levels of one or more of the three amino acids that make up glutathione.
Individuals with poor protein digestion from lack of stomach acid or insufficient pancreatic enzymes may experience low glutathione levels.
Dietary glutathione intake from food is considered minimal due to diminished bioavailability and absorption. However, glutathione is made by the liver with the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamine and other vitamins mentioned above.
Foods that support glutathione production include fresh meat, asparagus, avocado, spinach, green beans, papaya, and cucumber. Green squash, mango, red pepper, strawberries, tomato and yellow squash, and dairy products etc. provide less glutathione support.
1-3 capsules per day of Glutathione Ultra is helpful daily support for your antioxidant system. Each capsule contains 100mg of S-acetyl glutathione, a highly absorbable form of glutathione. More may be taken as desired.*
