Glutathione might not sound familiar, but it’s an integral player in the healthy balance of the body. It’s found in almost all living cells and is the most abundant cellular antioxidant, making it incredibly unique.
It has a huge impact on the body, from having anti-aging properties, controlling inflammation, helping to prevent stress and depression, limiting neurodegeneration, assisting with gut health, and countless more.
Because of its wide range of uses in the body, it is crucial to prevent Glutathione levels from becoming low.
How do you know if you’re deficient in Glutathione?
Glutathione is essentially a substance your body uses to help prevent cell damage while your body is producing energy. So if your levels are low, cells struggle to regenerate.
This can manifest into:
- weakness/lack of energy
- brain “fog”
- joint pain
- dry skin
- sleep disorders
- frequent colds
- onset of a more serious health condition
The benefits of Glutathione are far reaching. Those with a deficiency will notice the effects straight away, but even healthy people will notice things like improvement in energy levels, mind clarity, improved sleep and mood, and will see fewer colds.
Those who do power workouts several times a week will see faster recovery times, reduced muscle soreness and improved athletic performance.
There’s a reason Glutathione is often referred to as “the mother of all antioxidants”.
Here’s a rundown of the key benefits:
- It’s acts as a detoxifier
- Has positive effects for prevention of glaucoma and cataracts
- Has anti-aging properties
- Improves liver function
- Improves acne
- Boost overall mood and general sense of health and wellbeing
