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!
