Our bodies are amazing at repairing themselves when damage has been done. When we get a cut, the skin heals itself to be as good as new. The same thing happens when our body has been poisoned with toxins inside our system. The most powerful detoxifier is glutathione, which will bind to free radicals to rid our bodies of harmful toxins. Glutathione is so powerful, it can even help your body to age more slowly.
What Are Toxins
Toxins are substances that are poisonous to our bodies. Most toxins come from germs and bacteria. If our bodies do not successfully neutralize these toxins because of low glutathione and antioxidants, then we can become sick more easily. Other toxins can come from excessive drugs, chemicals, and heavy metals found in our everyday environment. These can come from things such as perfumes, cleaning products, microplastics in our food from packaging, preservatives, artificial dyes and flavorings, etc.
How Toxins Are Damaging
Our bodies rely on our enzymes for our systems to function properly, but toxins damage those enzymes which prevents hemoglobin in our blood from producing. This leads to decreased energy production and the acceleration of aging. When our body does not function properly, you are at an increased risk for diseases like cancer, heart disease, pneumonia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
What Does Glutathione Do?
Glutathione helps prevent damage to the cells in our body by neutralizing the harmful toxins. It is so powerful, it can bind itself to cancer causing carcinogens and inactivate them. Glutathione will help to break down medications in the body by making them easier to digest, and is involved in building DNA cells and proteins. Glutathione also protects the brain from oxidative stress and helps to detoxify fat in the liver to take stress off of the gallbladder. Glutathione is our biggest aid to our immune system by promoting T-cell function. When we have less toxins in our body, the easier it is for our body to function properly and to stay away from sicknesses.
How To Boost Glutathione In The Body
Glutathione is mostly in the liver, so taking an oral form of glutathione will not really help increase your levels because the digestive system will break it down before it reaches the bloodstream. However if you were to take glutathione intravenously, straight to your bloodstream, that would be very beneficial. Other ways to increase your levels naturally would be to increase your cysteine levels, because glutathione needs this amino acid. In order to raise cysteine levels, you could eat more whey protein such as cheese, milk, and yogurt. Other foods beneficial to aiding your glutathione levels would be those such as: garlic, onion, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, purple carrots and ginger. Staying away from things that decrease our glutathione due to causing inflammation such as eating unhealthy foods and lack of exercise are also important.
IV glutathione is one of the easiest and quickest ways to quickly get our levels to rise. When our glutathione levels are high, we are able to powerfully and quickly detox our bodies of harmful toxins. You can find a clinic that does IV therapy and they can suggest the proper amount for your body.
