What is Glutathione?
You may have heard or come across the term glutathione in the health space but are thinking to yourself “what does this word mean?”. We get it, it’s a word that can feel a bit confusing at first!
But we are taking a good guess that if you’ve come across ‘glutathione’ in your research you’re looking for ways to improve your health and wellbeing. And that is our main goal; to help you live stronger, fight faster, and recover quickly...
This is why we’re here to give you a breakdown of what glutathione is, why it is so crucial for your health and how Continual-G is the answer for this.
Firstly, what is Glutathione?
In a scientific sense, glutathione is a tripeptide (small protein) composed of three amino acids (protein building blocks) glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. Liver cells produce the most amount of glutathione which they use to eliminate toxins from the bloodstream. These toxins come from our diet, normal metabolism, and the air we breathe.
Using everyday language, glutathione is known as the master antioxidant, with every cell in our bodies making its own supply. It is responsible for powering other antioxidants to relieve oxidative stress (which is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body).
When you think about it, many activities that are a part of living an active lifestyle will increase the production of free radicals (for example, exposure to toxins, pollutants, chemicals, etc.). As a result, our natural production of glutathione can be overwhelmed. Maintaining healthy glutathione levels to neutralise these free radicals is central to continued optimal health.
To put it another way, picture glutathione as your body’s armour, ready to go to war and face whatever may come its way. It is your body’s first line of defence against free radicals and helps support general wellbeing
Why is glutathione crucial for your health?
Now that we have established what glutathione is, it’s time for us to let you in on all the wonderful health benefits of maintaining adequate levels of this master antioxidant.
Glutathione is crucial for optimum health because it assists with immunity, brain health, skin appearance and sports and injury recovery – just to get us started! Essentially, when we stress our bodies through extreme exercise, exposure to toxins, or from overindulgence in just about anything then we can quickly use up our glutathione reserves. As a result, this may expose our cells to the risk and perils of oxidative stress (the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body)
Produced in the liver at the highest levels, glutathione is also involved in tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and in maintaining a healthy active immune system. Finally, it acts as a recycler for other key antioxidants such as vitamins C & E.
All in all, it’s powerful for our health, right?
To really bring it home, our continuing good health can be challenged if:
- Our cells become depleted of glutathione through excessive exercise and exposure to high levels of toxins
- We permanently lose the capability to make enough glutathione to deal with normal levels of free radicals in some of our cells, tissues, and organs
- The number of free radicals produced by our cells becomes consistently higher than normal and overwhelms our glutathione production capacity
Finally, we thought it would be useful to list just some of the MANY ways that glutathione can assist with your health, including:
- Healthy ageing
- Skin health
- Brain health
- Lung health
- Organ health
- High-intensity training
- Sports recovery
In summary, you could say that glutathione is so crucial for your health and wellbeing as it acts as your shield, your first line of defence, and your ability to maintain good health.
How can Continual-G help with glutathione production for optimal health?
Now knowing what glutathione is and why it is so crucial for your health, the final piece of the puzzle is how does Continual-G play into this?
Here at Continual-G, we step in with the power of Glyteine, the ONLY way to achieve immediate increases in cellular production of glutathione. The Glyteine in our products, when taken regularly, supports the body’s production of glutathione to help fight against oxidative stress-related risk to your continued good health.
The important thing to remember is that Glyteine is NOT glutathione (we know it can be confusing with the two ‘g’s). However, your body cannot make glutathione without Glyteine, and this is where the magic happens with our Continual-G supplements. Your body needs Glyteine to make glutathione.
Continual-G elevates the body’s natural glutathione levels inside the cells. We have the only supplement on the market capable of entering your cells and increasing your glutathione levels after only a single dose. Don’t waste your time and money on other supplements like glutathione itself and NAC, they cannot do this!
