Why I use glutathione every day



"Since glutathione (GSH) participates not only in antioxidant defense systems, but also in many metabolic processes, its role cannot be overestimated." (Volodymyr, 2013, p2)


Aging. Working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America taught me to value the gift of aging- the ability to grow old with the people you love.

But maybe you're like me and you're not always enthusiastic about your face looking older than you feel on the inside. (Always young at heart!)

Here is something I tried on a whim and could NOT be more pleased with the results. Sorry the photos aren't more glamorous, but who doesn't love a good bathroom selfie?! =)


Here's the nitty gritty details for you to try yourself:

WHEN: Dec. 4th, 2017 - Jan. 7th, 2018

WHAT I USED: Glutathione Plus

HOW OFTEN: 1-2x/day (mornings & sometimes before I went to bed)

HOW MUCH: not quite one pump each time

WHERE: just the lines on my face

Role of glutathione (GSH):

"Many enzymes are inactivated or inhibited if cysteinyl sulfhydryl groups (—SH) are oxidized.

Glutathione is a natural activator for enzymes that contain sensitive and essential—SH groups. In this case glutathione is not a specific coenzyme but rather a natural antioxidant that can be synthesized in the cell from readily available precursors.

Thus by controlling the intracellular concentration of glutathione, the activity of several enzymes is affected." (Montgomery, 1996, p209)

Functions glutathione:

  1. Helps proteins. maintaining the essential thiol status of proteins and other molecules

  2. Stores important amino acids. storage of cysteine reserves both in the cell and for interorgan transfer

  3. Improves hormone metabolism. involvement in the metabolism of estrogens, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins

  4. Improves DNA synthesis. participation in the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides

  5. Improves DNA damage recognition & repair. participation in the maturation of iron-sulfur clusters in proteins

  6. Build heart & brain tissue, improve immune response. copper transfer. (Gupta, 2009, p1)

  7. Transports oxygen to organs & tissues. iron transfer.

  8. Makes necessary proteins. signal transduction from the environment to cellular transcription machinery (Volodymyr, 2013, p6)


In conclusion...

Applying glutathione to prevent/ diminish signs of aging may be the least important benefit of glutathione... but with results like this, why wouldn't you???
