Glutathione: How to Enhance This Master Antioxidant and Improve Your Health and Longevity

Good morning everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend…the first that actually felt like Spring!

Warmer weather always signals the beginning of lots of socializing and parties, all opportunities for eating and drinking foods and beverages we may not typically consume during the introspective time of winter.

As we head into the time of year for barbecue’s, cookouts and weekends away, it’s important to consider all the ways you can protect your body from the potential weakening effects of foods cooked on a grill, alcohol consumption and overall greater hedonistic pleasures.

In today’s Motivational Monday I am going to talk to you about the master antioxidant, glutathione. This nutrient is essential to help detoxify your liver and your overall system, protecting you from all kinds of health issues. Some of the foods you may be eating, medications you may be taking, or other lifestyle factors may be depleting this nutrient in your body, weakening your immune function and setting you up for disease.

After I cover the essentials on how to minimize the loss of glutathione, I will share with you several foods you should begin including in your diet straight away to help boost this amazing nutrient. I will also discuss a supplement that you can consider if you feel you need an extra boost.

After you’ve watched I’d love to hear from you! Particularly if you take a lot of the over-the-counter medications that have been shown to actively deplete glutathione. How do you manage to protect your body from environmental and lifestyle toxins, and in optimal glutathione-rich shape? Any thoughts and questions are also welcome!

Wishing you a happy and healthy week!

    I haven’t heard of this one but I eat the list of foods you mention as much as I can. I’ve found so many great Kale and Broccoli recipes and the other products are part of my diet anyway. Nice to know they are helping other health needs as well.

    Barbara, what can you tell me concerning Essential Tremors? Is there a way to help this condition with diet or supplements? I would appreciate any information you could give. Thank You, Judy

      Hi Judy~ Unfortunately, it’s not a simple solution. You’d have to follow a program that supports neurological health. I would recommend you find a qualified practitioner near you that you can work with … it would require the removal and integration certain foods as well as supplements and would require more interaction that what I would be able to provide in a video… what I can and will do though, is do a video on foods that support brain health and neurotransmission and you can begin with that…. But do see if you can find someone to work with more closely.
      Sound good? 🙂

    This is the first I have ever heard of this! I love that you say we have three chances a day to either help or hurt our bodies. Thanks so much for the weekly information, especially because they show up on Monday mornings when I’m feeling the effects of the weekend and ready to “start again”!
    Thank you so much for sharing your education with all of us!

    Glutatione it is a muster supplement hard to implement daily. Food may be a better solution.

    But what about shuts of it ? It is expensive ? Where we can get it ? How much could cost ?

      Hi George~
      I mention in the video that it is a difficult supplement to absorb if taken orally, so there are precursor supplements that you can take (also mentioned) that would be useful. Food is also great! I am not aware of shots other than IV drips which are not that expensive but you do need to find a doctor that would administer them to you~ I hope this is helpful!
