Glutathione is comprised largely of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. It is produced in our cells, but levels decline with age. Poor eating habits, toxins and stress also account for the declining levels
Glutathione levels in the body may be reduced by a number of factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress. Its levels also decline with age.
It reduces oxidative stress, may improve psoriasis, improves insulin resistance in older people, helps reduce symptoms of Parkinsons Disease and may help fight auto immune diseases.
Glutathione contains sulfur molecules, foods high in sulfur help to boost its natural production in the body.
These foods include:
- cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and bok choy
- allium vegetables, such as garlic and onions
- lean protein, such as fish, and chicken
Other foods and herbs that help to naturally boost glutathione levels include:
- milk thistle
- guso seaweed
A shocking number of people are lacking glutathione benefits due to the following:
- Genetically modified foods
- Aging prematurely
- Environmental pollutants
- Not so “healthy” food
