Attack of the toxins - top 3 ways to keep your L-Glutathione levels high

WARNING: You are being attacked. By chemicals and pollutants. Everyday. 

I don't want to scare you, but our body is CONSTANTLY berated with toxic chemicals:

…Absorbed through the skin from cosmetics, shampoos, and deodorants.
…Breathing urban polluted air. (7 million yearly premature deaths may be attributed to air pollution) [1]
…processed food, preservatives, and medication.
…and hopefully you don't still smoke! [ok, maybe when I’m drinking]


Luckily our highly evolved human bodies have developed a detoxification system that can cope with all this toxic load. 

And What is the bodies #1 defense against this toxicity?  

Meet a glorious little miracle nutrient called L-Glutathione

L-Glutathione is called “The Master Antioxidant” because of its diverse use and “sticky” properties. This stuff exists everywhere in your body and protects cells by sticking to toxic molecules like heavy metals, poisons and cancer causing free radicals.

It’s like a swiffer in your blood stream. 

Once the toxins stick to the Glutathione, they are transported to the liver to be metabolized and removed out of the body.... Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.  Toxins, Gone. 

This keeps our cells healthy and even our skin looking young and glowing. [check out this study on how Glutathione can improve your complexion]

Fortunately your body can create this stuff on it’s own. Waaa hoo!

UNfortunately your natural production of Glutathione declines as you age, and rapidly in your mid 30’s. Crap!

What's WORSE is that poor sleep, bad diet, stress, and DRINKING ALCOHOL drastically deplete your glutathione levels and restrict natural replenishment. 

When there is not enough Glutathione available in your blood, cells and liver, these toxic chemicals start to build up in your body. And that’s when you start to feel crappy, tired, and even foggy.

Now here’s the scariest part...  There have been 100’s of recent clinical studies involving lowered L-glutathione levels in the body and linking it to serious debilitating diseases. 

like parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes, and terminal cancers. AHHHH!


So what can you do to keep your Glutathione levels at above optimal levels to keep yourself looking young, healthy and prevent debilitating diseases?

First off, don’t be fooled by expensive "reduced" Glutathione supplements. They don’t work. Scientists are hip to the rejuvenating power of glutathione and have done many studies about absorption of oral supplements. Unfortunately the compound is too large and gets destroyed in the gut, preventing any absorption into the blood stream. 

Solution?  Take Glutathione precursor oral supplements. (the compounds required to build the glutathione tri-peptide) 

Glutathione is made up of three amino acids: cysteine, glycine, and glutamine.

These nutrients are easily absorbed into the blood stream through via your gut. Taking a daily nutritional supplement that includes these three amino acids as well as Glutathione boosters like N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and Vitamin C, will definitely help increase your Glutathione levels…

BUT it can take 6 months to a year to feel any improvement. UGH!

So now what? I don’t have time for that!

The fastest and most effective way to raise your Glutathione levels in the body is through intravenous nutrient therapy (IVNT). In just 10 minutes you can blast your body back into balance with an IV ‘push’ of L-glutathione. 

That's where we (NutriDrip) come in.

We include L-Glutathione in a bunch of our IV NutriDrips and even offer it as a stand alone 5 minute IV push. 

Check out our NutriDrips that include L-Glutathione and quick restore to optimal levels:
The Mega Hangover NutriDrip
The 60-Minute Cleanse NutriDrip

So to recap...

Glutathione is essential in dealing with the unavoidable daily toxic load our bodies endure. 

The natural production declines as we age and levels can become dangerously low if we are not taking care of ourselves properly [who truly does?!]

The Top 3 ways to increase your Glutathione levels:

1. Avoid chemicals, processed foods, stress, and alcohol(good luck with that) and get plenty of sleep. 

2. Take daily supplements that include Glutathione precursors
(Check out our favorite ones here)

3. Get a monthly IV nutrient infusion that includes high doses of reduced L-Glutathione (check out our NutriDrips that include L-Glutathione)
