Glutathione Deficiency Glutathione deficiency occurs when your body is unable to produce enough glutathione to cover all the functions which this master antioxidant performs. Decreased glutathione levels are usually the result of a lifestyle that is characterized by the many factors that deplete glutathione. Glutathione deficiency leads to: increased oxidative stress greatly reduced ability to detoxify accumulation of toxins and heavy metals inability to repair DNA cell mutations weakened cell membranes reduced supply of oxygen and nutrients to the cells eventual cell death These processes directly affect the state of the immune system and often become the main cause of the onset of the disease, or its progression, severity, and response (or, rather, the lack of it) to treatments. Low glutathione also means that the prescribed treatments, instead of helping, may actually aggravate the condition since drugs cause further decline in glutathione levels. For example, it has been documented scientifically that glutathione levels can predict how long HIV patients are able to survive, or how well and with what side effects cancer patients can tolerate chemotherapy and radiation. Research has shown that almost all chronic conditions are characterized by glutathione deficiency: HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, asthma, all cancers, cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma (open angle only), chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, all diseases of liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and digestive system, fibromyalgia, flu and colds, peripheral neuropathy, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, skin disorders, seizures, tumors, autism spectrum disorders and more, as well as non-chronic conditions, such as burns, physical trauma and any type of surgery. Only people with serious chronic conditions and those undergoing harsh treatments are severely deficient in glutathione. They respond quickly and positively to even minimal increases in glutathione levels. In Ray’s case of peripheral neuropathy, decades of Standard American Diet (SAD), high levels of prolonged stress and possible exposure to toxins during his professional career as a field engineer caused glutathione deficiency that led to the onset and rapid progression of the disease. When he started his glutathione boosting regimen he saw a considerable improvement within several days and an 80-90% reduction in pain levels and pain area after 4-6 weeks of his regimen (described at the bottom of the Peripheral Neuropathy page). People who consider themselves to be in good health may not necessarily be glutathione deficient but may still have declining glutathione levels. The main reason for that is age first of all, because glutathione production in cells declines naturally at an average rate of 10% per decade after age 20. Secondly, on a daily basis we all are exposed to environmental pollution, exhaust fumes, smoke, viruses and do not always eat nutritious homemade meals with recommended 7-9 servings of organic vegetables and fruit a day. Such a lifestyle eventually leads to a certain degree of glutathione deficiency. The symptoms may include: headaches dizziness weakness/lack of energy brain “fog” joint pain rashes dry skin sleep disorders depression frequent colds onset of a more serious health condition Healthy people may not notice instantaneous results when boosting glutathione levels. However, they will notice improvement in energy levels, mind clarity, improved sleep and mood, and will see fewer colds. Those who do power workouts several times a week will see faster recovery times, reduced muscle soreness and improved athletic performance (The Effect Of Supplementation With A Cysteine Donor On Muscular Performance. Lands LC, J Appl Physiol.Oct;87(4) :1381-5 (1999). Glutathione deficiency can be brought on by gene mutations or missing genes GSTT1, GSTM1, GSTM2, GSTP1, MTHFR C677T homozygous and others. These genes regulate the production and activity of glutathione enzymes and affect metabolism of cysteine, folate and B vitamins – these enzymes and glutathione cofactors regulate how much glutathione the body is able to produce. If glutathione deficiency is so detrimental to our health and longevity how do we raise and maintain optimal levels of this crucial master antioxidant? So how do we raise our Glutathione levels. There is one way which is 300% more effect than any other GSH boosting product available today. PM us to find out more.
And let it be noted that there is no more delicate matter to take in hand, nor more dangerous to conduct, nor more doubtful in its success, than to set up as a leader in the introduction of changes. For he who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off under the existing order of things, and only the lukewarm supporters in those who might be better off under the new. This lukewarm temper arises partly from the fear of adversaries who have the laws on their side and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who will never admit the merit of anything new, until they have seen it proved by the event.

Again with the eyes today. Glaucoma Glutathione Boosting Improving Eye Health with Glutathione As with many diseases, the glaucoma glutathione levels are decreased. One study actually found that the levels were decreased long before the onset of major symptoms. Does this mean that raising glaucoma glutathione levels could help to improve vision and even stop or decrease the progression of the disease? Consider what some studies have found. The first study by a Russian group. The GSH levels of over 200 eye surgery patients were found to be depleted, even at the earliest stages of the disease. They suggested that elevating GSH levels may slow the disease process or even halt the progression. Vestn.

As you read note that the reactive oxygen species is referring to oxidants. To fight oxidants we need antioxidants. Both endogenous and androgynous. Also note the thoughts about treating with dietary measures. There is growing evidence that reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a key role in the pathogenesis of Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). POAG patients appear to have a genetic predisposition rendering them susceptible to...damage because of a more frequent deletion, as compared to controls, of the gene encoding for glutathione-S-transferase M1, a pivotal anti-oxidant activity. Furthermore, oxidative stress, occurring not only in TM (trabecular meshwork) but also in retinal cells, appears to be involved in the neuronal cell death that characterizes POAG. These considerations could bear relevance for POAG prevention and suggest that genetic analysis and the use of drugs or dietary measures attenuating the effects of ROS, if validated in future studies, could be useful tools contributing to the control of this disease.

Have Macular Degeneration or a family history of it. Have a read of this. Macular Degeneration Glutathione Levels Can Increasing Levels Slow Disease Progression? It is no surprise the macular degeneration glutathione (GSH) levels are diminished in the elderly. Thus macular degeneration mostly found in the elderly. Since it is a leading cause of blindness in those over 50 years of age, it is important to give GSH levels consideration. Macular Degeneration Risk Factors Advancing Age: About 10 percent of patients over 65 to 74 will develop macular degeneration. Then age 75- to 85 the prevalence increases to 30 percent according to Wikipedia. Smoking: Doubles the risk of macular degeneration. Family History: A 50 percent life time risk with familial history vs 12% for those without family history. High Blood Pressure High Cholesterol High Fat Intake Oxidative Stress Race: Whites are more likely than Blacks Sunlight Exposure: Studies on blue light are conflicting but there is a correlation with High Energy Visible Light and age related macular degeneration. Treatment There are numerous drug treatments and the success of some is remarkable. Prevention The Age-Related Eye Disease Study found that a diet combination of high dose beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and Zinc can help reduce some risk for about 25 percent of the patients in the trial. Additionally another study suggests that statins (cholesterol reducing drugs) may help in prevention in AMD and slowing progression. This is important as you will see... One study noted...

CONCLUSIONS: Independent of its PPARgamma activity, dPGJ(2) protected cells from oxidative stress by increasing glutathione levels and enhancing MAPK activation. Thus, dPGJ(2) may delay the development of dry-type age-related macular degeneration. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2006 Nov; 47(11):5098-105.

Glutathoine the Master Antioxidant reviews the three main properties of this wonderful cellular defense system. Dietary Considerations Fat is an essential part of our diet. Limiting fat intake to 20 to 25% of total food energy (this would mean cutting current red meat and dairy intake by 50 percent. Replace with cold water fish (twice a week) and eat nuts may help. Bonus... Two Brazil nuts have 200 mcg of Selenium. That is how much you need every day. It is one of the co-factors of glutathione production. Since oxidative stress is associated with macular degeneration glutathione level decrease, then taking something that boosted glutathione levels would be helpful. Also a diet rich in antioxidants could be helpful. Although the findings on light exposure are not conclusive, it could not hurt to wear sunglasses. There is much more that can be written about Macular Degeneration Glutathione levels and how to increase them.

Texas scientists discover a new way to reverse the metabolism slowdown that happens with aging, leading to weight loss and more energy. Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 14, 2015 It’s a familiar ritual. Every January, most of us swear that this is the year we are going to lose those extra pounds and get into shape. In Houston, it’s particularly familiar, because the city has a well-documented weight problem. Named “America’s Fattest City” three times in the past five years by Men’s Fitness Magazine (http://www.mensfitness.com/…/the-fittest-and-fattest-cities…), 34% of Houstonians are overweight, according to the CDC, and the city has the highest number of fast-food restaurants in the country (1,034 at last count) (http://www.texasmonthly.com/…/houston-%E2%80%9Camerica%E2%8…). Houston has in the last few years taken its weight problem seriously, though, with the Mayor’s Office kicking off the Healthy Houston Initiative and local non-profit organization Shape Up Houston setting the lofty goal of helping Houstonians lose one million pounds. But the problem might be tougher than we know. As we get into our 40s and beyond, our metabolism slows down, making it harder to process food efficiently and slowing down our energy – causing weight gain, even if we do the same exercise and dieting we’ve always done. However, scientists at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston have been working on a solution over the past 14 years. The solution involves replenishing two key amino acids that become depleted with age. These amino acids are crucial to the production of glutathione, which is essential to healthy metabolic function. Their research showed that with two weeks of supplementing those amino acids in the right quantity and combination, people lost an average of three pounds of fat, and gained two pounds of muscle. "We wanted to know what happens to mitochondrial ability to burn fat with long-term glutathione deficiency in older people," said Rajagopal V. Sekhar, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine – Endocrinology at Baylor College of Medicine. "When we give these older people cysteine and glycine in their diets and corrected glutathione deficiency, amazingly their fat oxidation also normalized," he said. "The older people go back to burning fat as well as younger people within 14 days."
