There are lots of antioxidants on the market. How can you determine if one is worth buying, and if it has any effect on your body whatsoever?
Finding the best antioxidant out there is quite a challenge, I agree. You would think if antioxidants were so important, your body would make them, and indeed, the most powerful and plentiful antioxidant that your body makes, called the Master Antioxidant, is glutathione.
You cannot eat glutathione and expect it to raise your glutathione. The best ways are to give your body the building blocks to make it in your cells.
Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP, is the world’s most published author on the subject, and his bestseller “Glutathione – Your Key to Health” contains a listing of all of the researched and proven ways to raise glutathione thus far.
You can see the complete list here.
The two most thoroughly studied and effective ways of raising glutathione are with variants of cysteine. N-acetyl-cysteine is one of them, but has potentially toxic side effects, a short half life, and more research is ongoing as to the safety of long term chronic usage. The other well studied method is with a bonded cysteine supplement called Immunocal.
There are antioxidants that are necessary to take along with your building blocks, such as Vitamin E and Vitamin C, so taking several effective antioxidants is a good course of action. These are co-factors for glutathione production.
How do you know glutathione is effective? You know because, as of September 2011, there are over 97,000 references to it on PubMed showing the positive effects on the human body, and this goes beyond its role as an antioxidant.
So if you are researching a supplement, go to PubMed and see if there has been much research on it and what the studies show as far as effectiveness.
To sum up: Glutathione is your body's master antioxidant, necessary and crucial for your survival and health. Immunocal is the most effective, safe, and natural way to raise and sustain your glutathione.
