Glutathione Studies - What Are The Doctors Saying That You Need To Know?
Are there glutathione studies that we can research? Absolutely. The best place to find them online is to go to PubMed, and type in the word glutathione. You will find over 117,000 studies there.
Just what is involved in taking a product that raises glutathione to market, and getting the research done and published? What does "peer reviewed" mean, and what can we expect in the future for more glutathione studies on Immunocal?
Join Dr. Jimmy Gutman and his assistant John Molson as they briefly explain what's behind glutathione studies that have been published online:
So that lays the groundwork for you regarding glutathione studies. But if you are like me, you realize this is a great thing to know, but you can't sit down and read these studies in a way that can be thoroughly understood.
That's where the doctors come in. The medical experts have thoroughly gone over these studies and given us the information we need to protect our health today with glutathione.
This helps you and I to really know what is important!

Glutathione Studies: What The Doctors Are Saying
"No other antioxidant is as important to overall health
as glutathione. It is the regenerator of immune cells and
the most valuable detoxifying agent in the body. Low
levels, are associated with early aging, and even death."
The Immune System Cure, Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe & Patrick J.D. Bouic, Ph.D.
"Without glutathione, other important antioxidants
such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job
adequately to protect your body against disease."
Breakthrough in Cell Defense, Allan Somersall, Ph.D., M.D.,
and Gustavo Bounous, M.D. FRCS(C)
"Glutathione (GSH) deficiency, contributes to
oxidative stress and therefore appears to play a
key role in the pathology of many diseases… "
Glutathione in Health and Disease.
Dr. Patricia Kongshavn, MSC, Ph.D. January 2005
"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."
Glutathione: Essential Health AID - Antioxidant, Immune Booster, Detoxifier. Dr. Jimmy Gutman, M.D., FACEP
"Glutathione is important in DNA synthesis and
repair, …detoxification of toxins and carcinogens,
enhancement of the immune system, and
protection from oxidation..."
The Immune System Cure, Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe &
Patrick J.D. Bouic, Ph.D.
Glutathione Studies: Published Papers
"Raised glutathione levels fight the oxidation of
circulating fats in the bloodstream, including
cholesterol, retarding the process of plaque
formation in the arteries - the underlying cause
for most heart disease and stroke."
Nutrition Reviews 54: 1-30, 1996
"Diabetics are prone to infections and circulatory
problems leading to heart disease, kidney failure
and blindness. Glutathione protects against the
complications of diabetes."
Clinical Science 91: 575-582, 1996
"Glutathione protects the body from the
inflammation of gastritis, stomach ulcers,
pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease
including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease."
Gut 42: 485-492, 1998
"It is well known that aging is accompanied by a
precipitous fall in glutathione levels. Lower glutathione
levels are implicated in many diseases associated
with aging, including cataracts, Alzheimer’s disease,
Parkinson’s, atherosclerosis and others."
Journal of Clinical Epidemiology 47: 1021-26 1994
"Immune depressed individuals have lower glutathione
(GSH) concentrations. Healthy people also drop their
glutathione levels when fighting disease. Lymphocytes,
cells vital for your immune response, depend on GSH
for their proper function and replication."
Immunology 61 : 503-508, 1987
"Antioxidants are well documented and known
to possess vital roles in health maintenance and
disease prevention. Glutathione is your cell’s
own major antioxidant. Maintaining elevated
glutathione levels aids the body’s
natural antioxidant function."
Biochemical Pharmacology 47: 2113-2123 1994
Glutathione Studies: 3 Prominent Doctors Share Their Findings
Note what three prominent and highly respected medical doctors, Dr. Luc Montagnier, Dr. James F. Balch, and Dr. Wulf Droge, have to say about the results of their glutathione studies:
Dr. Luc Montagnier :
Winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi in 1983.
• Co-founder of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention.
• Made many significant discoveries concerning the nature of viruses.
• Contributed to the understanding of how viruses can alter the genetic information of host organisms.
• His work has significantly advanced cancer research.
As one of the world’s experts in the field, Dr. Montagnier is a contributing Editor of the book “Oxidative Stress in Cancer,
AIDS, and Neurodegenerative Diseases” where a complete chapter is devoted to Immunocal® and where it states that:
"Glutathione is of major significance in cellular antioxidant activity, and that Immunocal functioning as a cysteine
delivery system can enhance glutathione synthesis . . .
Dr. James F. Balch:
• Graduated with honors from the University of Indiana School of Medicine.
• Spent over 30 years as a urologist in private practice before devoting his career to nutritional healing.
• Member of the American Medical Association, the American College of Surgeons,
and board certified by the American Board of Urology.
• Is recognized as a prominent authority on nutrient healing.
• Is author of several books including the best seller, Prescription for Nutritional Healing.
"It’s my opinion that everyone should be taking Immunocal. Today, there’s no better way to boost your immune system."
Dr. Wulf Droge:
• A world renowned research scientist and Senior Vice-President, Research & Development, Immunotec Inc.
• Has over 250 publications and is internationally known in the field of redox physiology and aging research.
• Has over 40 years of active experience in basic and clinical research.
• For almost 30 years he served as professor of immunology and cell biology at the University of Heidelberg and
head of the Department of Immunochemistry at the National Cancer Research Center of Germany.
• Was the first to describe the effect of glutathione on the immune response.
"Many studies of my laboratory at the German Cancer Research Center support the conclusion that Immunocal is
effective in maintaining a strong immune system . . .
Through its special structural properties, Immunocal overcomes a cellular deficiency that is most commonly seen
in old age … This deficiency affects most notably the cells of the immune system and is associated with an increased
incidence of infections. Elderly people are therefore the first to feel the benefits if regularly consuming Immunocal . . .
young people are well advised to also consume Immunocal regularly. It is good advice to be prepared at all times."
In conclusion, the growing list of medical professionals sharing the results of their glutathione studies with us can do much to protect our health.
