Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants

This is a great, informative article to take a look at even if you aren’t sick and don’t have Lyme disease.  I especially like the ‘9 Tips to Optimize your Glutathione Levels’ mentioned at the end of the article.  Glutathione is something that Jackson, Misha and I are now taking everyday, first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.  This is a great article, that I learned a lot from, about why we need Glutathione.  Glutathione recycles antioxidants, helps your immune system fight infections, helps mental and physical performance, prevents cancer and helps detox  toxins stick onto glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool, out the body).

This is the Liposomal Glutathione that we take:

Something that I recently learned is that when one takes Tylenol, it depletes the glutathione levels.  Acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol & many other OTC drugs), depletes Glutathione levels in the liver (where it is made & stored).  It can then cause more oxidative damage, free radicals & liver damage. Tylenol is known to cause liver damage & failure.  We haven’t given Jackson any Tylenol since we found out about this.
