Can Glutathione Reduce Blood Pressure?
Indirectly, it can. First off, I will say that the causes of high blood pressure are many and not yet fully understood.
However, one thing we do know from published medical studies is that inflammation and oxidative stress play a large role in the development of arterial plaque.
When we take in fats, and there is a high amount of oxidative stress in the body, something called lipid peroxidation occurs that makes the fats sticky and rancid, and they stick to our arterial walls.
This causes an immune response, and inflammation, as the immune system tries to rectify the situation. As the arterial opening starts to narrow due to the buildup of oxidized fats, the heart has to pump harder to get the blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, so oftentimes, blood pressure will go up.
If you have high glutathione levels, you will increase your antioxidant mechanism to fight oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation as well, getting to some of the main causes of high blood pressure.
In addition, one should eat a balanced diet, get regular exercise, and get plenty of sleep each night. In time, in conjunction with raising your glutathione levels, I have seen several people lower their blood pressure gradually over time without prescription medication. My husband is one of them.
Please keep in mind that taking glutathione pills will not raise your glutathione levels and have this effect. You must take in the building blocks or precursors so your cells can make it themselves.

Immunocal is rich in the precursor bonded cysteine for raising and sustaining glutathione. Immunocal is the most effective, safe, and natural way to raise and sustain your glutathione.
