Can Glutathione Help With Hepatitis?
On a previous page, we discussed the three types of infectious hepatitis, how they affect the liver, and how they are contracted.
Now let's see what Dr. Jimmy Gutman, world's leading author on the subject of glutathione, has to say about glutathione and hepatitis, and another form, toxic hepatitis, taken from his latest bestseller, "Glutathione - Your Key To Health" in Chapter 11 - The Liver and Hepatitis:
"Toxic hepatitis is a non-infectious condition caused by exposure to chemicals that damage the liver.

Alcoholism tends to be a chronic disease, and this prolonged inflammation often leads to cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver...
Regarding prevention for all hepatitis, (whether it be infectious or toxic hepatitis), the best way to deal with all forms of hepatitis is prevention - proper sanitation and hygiene, screening of blood products, vaccination, avoidance of toxins such as alcohol and intravenous drugs, and avoiding contact with the bodily fluids of infected people.
Hepatologists know that glutathione (GSH) plays a critical role in the liver- it is that organ's most abundant antioxidant enzyme. GSH concentrations are higher in the liver than in any other organ...
Medical science has long known that a GSH deficiency invariably accompanies liver damage. When hepatitis results from acute overdoses of hepatotoxic pharmaceutical drugs such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, Atasol, etc), the GSH-enhancing drug N-Acetyl-cysteine is used to raise GSH levels rapidly...
In conclusion, the liver is the largest and most complicated organ in your body. It is intimately linked to a myriad of factors affecting health and illness. GSH is a key constituent of proper liver function. Low GSH levels invite a host of toxicological and immunological diseases. High levels offer protection against these maladies."
An excellent way to protect your liver and improve its function when dealing with hepatitis is to raise your glutathione levels.
