Detox Rejuvenation Therapy with Glutathione
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that is contained within our bodies and acts as a buffer for any harmful toxins, chemicals or damaged cells that are introduced. Luckily the body is capable of producing its own glutathione, which keeps the body healthy and functioning properly. glutathione can be depleted rather quickly if a person is sick, has been working out hard, drinking or smoking which can lead to more illness. In fact when people have an illness or disease they also are low in glutathione which can then lead to additional health issues. Glutathione has been used in treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease, fertility and more.
In fact glutathione is so powerful that it is used regularly to combat the negative radiation effects of chemotherapy!
Another benefit to Glutathione is recovery in athletes and those leading active lifestyles. Several studies have shown that test subjects supplementing glutathione had an increase in lean muscle mass over control groups that did not add glutathione. While not considered a testosterone booster, glutathione is a powerful anti-oxidant and very intense workouts or fitness routines can cause stress in the body. Presumably the increased glutathione removes the damage and free radicals caused by the workout which speeds up the body’s ability to heal and rebuild muscle.
Milk Thistle is unique in its ability to protect the liver and has no equivalent in the pharmaceutical drug world. In fact, in cases of poisoning with Amanita mushrooms, which destroy the liver, milk thistle is the only treatment option. It has been so dramatically effective that the treatment has never been disputed, even by the traditional medical community. Milk thistle acts in a similar fashion to detoxify other synthetic chemicals that find their way into our bodies, from acetaminophen and alcohol to heavy metals and radiation. Milk thistle was approved in 1986 as a treatment for liver disease and it is widely used to treat alcoholic hepatitis, alcoholic fatty liver, cirrhosis, liver poisoning and viral hepatitis. It has also been shown to protect the liver against medications such as acetaminophen, a non-aspirin pain reliever.
The active ingredient, or liver-protecting compound in milk thistle is known as silymarin. This substance, which actually consists of a group of compounds called flavonolignands, helps repair liver cells damaged by alcohol and other toxic substances by stimulating protein synthesis. By changing the outside layer of liver cells, it also prevents certain toxins from getting inside. Silymarin also seems to encourage liver cell growth. It can reduce inflammation (important for people with liver inflammation or hepatitis), and has potent antioxidant effects. Antioxidants are thought to protect body cells from damage caused by a chemical process called oxidation. Our Milk Thistle is not standardized to an exact amount (as it is made from pure dried natural herbs. Milk Thistle naturally contains about 70 – 80% Silymarin (and many other constituents thought to work in harmony).
