As we age the many stress causing factors in our lives begin to deplete our supply of Glutathione. This process typically begins in our early 40 's and continues with at least 10% depletion per decade. So as we develop the diseases of aging, many are related to declining levels of glutathione.

The daunting list of diseases documented to have links to low GSH are:
  • Cancer and Immune Disorders such as HIV & AIDS, Lyme Disease, Viral Infections, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 
  • Neuro Degenerative Disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, MS, and Huntington’s, Heart Disease & Stroke
  • Hepatitis & Liver damage from alcohol & other toxins, liver failure
  • Inflammatory Disorders such as Allergies, Autoimmune Diseases, Asthma, Skin & Gum Disorders, and Arthritis
  • Glandular disorders such as Over or Underactive Thyroid, Diabetes, and Pancreatitis
  • Psychiatric/Developmental disorders such as Autism, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, and Depression
  • Heavy Metal & Chemical Toxicities
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease & Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Accelerated Aging
  • Gout
  • Infertility
  • Eyesight Issues
  • Gastric Ulcers

Glutathione deficiency is common with processed devitalized foods such as those in the American diet. The reality is that most of us older than 35 years are deficient. Optimal intake is at least 250mg daily, while the average American diet provides 35mg daily. No wonder we are in 30th place as far as life expectancies per country!

The foods highest in (GSH) are asparagus, avocado, spinach, kale, other greens, squash, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, parsley, fresh cilantro, chlorella algae, walnuts, grapefruit, watermelon, cantaloupe, oranges, peaches, eggs & high quality whey protein powder.

If you have a chronic illness of any kind, you may want to pursue increasing your glutathione by supplementation. Glutathione is especially low in the morning so that is a good time to supplement. Swallowed capsules or tablets cannot be absorbed, but the liquid Liposomal Glutathione form can be utilized by the body. There is also a new sublingual form of glutathione . Some with more severe illness use (GSH) intravenously.
