What is Continual-G®?
Continual-G® is a range of dietary supplements that contain Glyteine® as the primary functional dietary ingredient. Only Continual-G® can raise glutathione levels inside cells i.e. cellular glutathione levels.
Our body is composed of trillions of cells and every cell needs glutathione to survive. Glutathione is commonly known as the body’s master antioxidant particularly since its depleted concentration inside cells has been correlated with a large number of adverse as well as chronic health issues. The most common property of glutathione is its ability to neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are also referred to as reactive oxygen species *(ROS) and their presence inside cells leads to the condition known as oxidative stress.
Role of Glyteine®
Glutathione levels can only be elevated by feeding them the dipeptide gamma-glutamylcysteine, the immediate molecular precursor to the tripeptide glutathione. Glyteine as the proprietary form of gamma-glutamylcysteine is therefore the only molecule that can accomplish this process.
It is not enough just to produce glutathione inside cells since for glutathione to be effective in health applications, its cellular concentration must exceed homeostatic levels. This really is where all other ingredients, whether it is N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a mixture of NAC and glycine (GLYNAC), glutathione or its various forms such as liposomal glutathione or S-acetylglutathione that claim to increase glutathione levels fail.
Glyteine® is taken up by the cells in your body where it is rapidly converted into glutathione in 2 hours (Refer Study). This fact has been well documented since the 1970s but the difficulty in producing large quantities at affordable costs prevented its commercialization. UNTIL NOW, when a team of researchers in Australia, over a 20-year period, invented the synthesis method and developed the manufacturing technology enabling the commercialization of gamma-glutamylcysteine i.e. Glyteine.
The Continual-G® Drink Mix when dissolved in a glass of water provides a refreshing beverage option for including Glyteine® in your daily diet. Continual-G is also available in capsule form.
