SETRIA® L-GLUTATHIONE (REDUCED) - ANTIOXIDANT – FREE RADICAL REDUCTION
Glutathione is a nonessential nutrient, meaning it CAN be generated by our body with normal metabolism. It exists in two forms, with the reduced form demonstrating superior activity. Glutathione is an antioxidant in many organisms. It has been demonstrated to prevent damage to cells that can be caused by free radicals and heavy metal. Glutathione is one the most important compounds in our body for detoxification which acts as an antioxidant, works to protect against free radicals that can damage tissue, and binds with a variety of compounds that otherwise would have the potential for toxicity, cell damage, and are potentially carcinogenic.
While our bodies make glutathione, levels can become depleted through poor lifestyle choices and through the natural aging process. A strong immune system is critical for good health. It is used by our cells to facilitate genetic (DNA) repair, maintain active components of many vitamins including C and E, and modulate cell turnover. It has a sulfur component that has been reported to assist in binding as well as leading to facilitating detoxification.
Oxidative stress is the lack of balance between compounds that can damage tissues either from normal metabolism or external sources including toxins. It has been implicated in aging, cancer, inflammatory diseases, and numerous health challenges on the human body.
Glutathione has been demonstrated to be highly effective in combating this imbalance; this type of glutathione has been demonstrated to measurably increase the bioavailability of this important component in our body.
Substantiated Claims for Dietary Supplements:
- Free Radical Protection- Eating, exercising, and normal respiration and metabolism result in the creation of free radicals. Glutathione has been demonstrated to neutralize free radicals. This antioxidant has also been reported to have the ability to reactivate other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E by extending their abilities to scavenge for and neutralize oxidants.
- Detoxification - Glutathione supports the function of your liver, kidneys, GI tract, and intestines—your body’s major detoxification pathways.* Glutathione helps in two main ways: It helps to support elimination toxins, ingested chemicals, and potential carcinogens that the body has already absorbed* It intercepts and neutralizes toxins in the GI tract before they are even absorbed.
- Immune Support - Glutathione plays an essential role in supporting immune health and helps protect cells from the damaging effects of oxidative stress and toxins. Glutathione helps assist immune function by: Reported assist in function of T-cell lymphocytes (white blood cells), by increasing their numbers.* Glutathione in studies has been shown to stimulate the production and activity of natural killer (NK) cells.*
