What is Glutathione?

Glutathione (pronounced “gloota-thigh-own”) is the body’s essential health protector and anti-aging resource.
Glutathione is the master Antioxidant, Immune booster and Detoxifier. This small protein, produced
naturally in the body, maintains these three crucial protective functions, in fact your life depends on
glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have
little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation
of toxins.

There was a time when only scientists had heard of cholesterol and vitamins, but today everyone knows about them. Now its glutathione’s turn. In the last five years, over twenty-five thousand medical articles about this substance have been published and this scientific understanding is rapidly becoming common knowledge.

Each and every cell in the body is responsible for its own supply of glutathione and must have the necessary raw materials to make it. Glutathione is always in great demand and is rapidly consumed when we experience any sort of pressure – illness, stress, fatigue and even exercise. Some well-known causes of glutathione depletions are:

Poor Diet
Radiation Pollution
burns Trauma

Why Glutathione is Essential to Health

Glutathione’s three major roles in the body are – Anti-oxidants, Immune booster, and Detoxifier – three critical processes driven by glutathione.

The Master Antioxidant
Over the past thirty years researchers have explored the value of antioxidants in good health. Free radicals have been implicated in all sorts of illness, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and aging itself.

Well known and widely used antioxidant such as vitamin C vitamin E and selenium neutralize free radicals. They occur naturally in nature but not in the body – they must be introduced as part of a balanced diet. Given the critical role of antioxidants in good health, it is not surprising that the body itself manufactures it own natural antioxidants. The most important of these is glutathione. Because all other antioxidants depend upon
the presence of glutathione to function properly scientist call it “the master antioxidant”.

Food for the Immune System
The immune system’s function is to identify and attack germs and other invaders, including cancer cells. A body with plenty of glutathione fights off these threats more easily by denying most of them a foothold and by confronting the few that get through with an enhanced immune system. Elevated glutathione levels enable the body to produce more white blood cells – the most important front line defence of the immune systems.

Glutathione plays a central role in the functions of these immune cells. Dr. Gustavo Bounous, leading glutathione experts says, “The limiting factor in the proper activity of our lymphocytes (white blood cells) is the availability of glutathione.” Put simply, glutathione is “the food” for the immune system.

Natural Detoxification
Whether we know it or not, we are continually inhaling and ingesting natural and synthetic toxins. They are unavoidable in these modern times, both in our polluted cities and our engineered food supplies. When the body has its health and the nourishment it needs it works tirelessly to eliminate toxins and protect itself, but increasing levels of environmental pollutants are depleting its stores of glutathione more and more rapidly.

Our main organ of detoxification is the liver – the body’s most concentrated source of glutathione. Studies show that low glutathione levels lead to poor liver function, causing more and more toxins to circulate through the body and resulting in damage to individual cells and organs. Doctors routinely use glutathione promoting drugs to detoxify victims of certain types of drug overdoes.

Drugs That Raise Glutathione Levels
Pharmaceutical drugs like those shown below have been used to raise glutathione levels: however, they all produce side effects and are unsuitable for long term use.


The drugs NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine) is a potent glutathione precursor that has been available for many years and is also found on the shelves of health supplement stores. This pharmaceutical chemical is used to break up mucus in lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis and asthma. It remains the standard treatment for acetaminophen overdoes. Most traditional glutathione studies in humans have been conducted with NAC

NAC therapy has two common problems: firstly, it is a pharmaceutical drug and carries certain toxicity itself; secondly, NAC induced glutathione levels reach rapid peak and decline within hours. The drug is thus described as having a short half life. Rapid peaks are often followed by a sudden fall, often to below normal levels. To maintain constantly elevated glutathione levels, NAC must be swallowed or injected several times
per day, and this is very hard on the body. Many people taking NAC report symptoms including rash, wheezing, nausea, vomiting, cramps and diarrhea. However it is still the most commonly used way to raise glutathione levels in clinical settings.

OTC (ornithine decarboxylase procysteine), OTZ (oxothiazolidine carboxylate), are synthetic compounds with only limited ability to raise glutathione levels and have unproven safety records.

Herb and Supplement Alternatives
These choices have little effect in raising glutathione significantly because the stomach acids destroy them during digestion before they can have any significant effect.

Life Wave Glutathione Patches
Life Wave glutathione non-transdermal patches, when applied to the body provide a signal which tells the natural resource of the body to develop its own glutathione naturally. This patented technology, developed for the U.S. Military, eliminates drugs, chemicals or stimulates from entering the body or blood stream. Instead, when a patch is placed on the meridian point (two finger widths below the navel) the glutathione
levels have been show through extensive studies to elevate glutathione an average of 300% within 24 hours. A new patch should be worn every other day according to the above protocol as a state-of-the-art way provide this critical resource to your body efficiently.

Glutathione in Health and Disease

It is believed that glutathione has an important role to play in the treatment and prevention of hundreds of diseases. It may in the future be considered as important to health as a well rounded diet, exercise and good lifestyle. Clinical tests show that raised glutathione levels may address some of the major health issues of our
time – heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, cigarette smoking, hepatitis, AID’s and more. Glutathione provides the body with tools to fights off these threats naturally.

Healthy people also benefit from elevated glutathione levels through an enhanced ability to fight off toxins, infectious diseases, pre-cancerous cells and the aging process itself. Diminished glutathione levels are a symptom of aging and are particularly evident in such ailments as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

Glutathione is also important to physically active people. Many world-class athletes are discovering that well-maintained glutathione levels give them an edge over their competitors, bringing greater strength and endurance, decreased recovery time from injury, less muscle pain and fatigue and muscle-promoting activity.

Glutathione is an essential to anti-aging, master anti-oxidant, optimizing the immune system and detoxifying a long list of pollutants and carcinogens. However, the body’s glutathione levels are not raised by eating glutathione since it is poorly absorbed through the digestive system. It must be manufactured within the cells of the body. Therefore, the best way to raise glutathione levels is by providing the building blocks used by the cells to make it themselves. The Life Wave Glutathione patch does this by signalling the body to use the natural resources which are already there to step up this production to robust youthful levels.
