Is Glutathione Important In Covid Treatment?

"Glutathione is our body's main antioxidant, and no cell can survive without it. Read on to know if it is important for prevention and recovery of Covid-19. Glutathione is our body’s own master antioxidant without which no cells can survive. A tripeptide made of glutamate, cysteine and glycine, this antioxidant molecule is omnipresent in most … Continue reading Is Glutathione Important In Covid Treatment?

What’s The Big Deal With Glutathione?

Glutathione is essential because it helps support our immune system and makes it work optimally. Raising glutathione levels inside our cells is critical, especially for those of us with autoimmune conditions, because the mitochondria, the cell’s powerhouse is negatively affected via these conditions. Glutathione also supports detoxification. Via our environment, homes, the products we use, etc., … Continue reading What’s The Big Deal With Glutathione?

Glutathione Stimulates Vitamin D Regulatory and Glucose-Metabolism Genes, Lowers Oxidative Stress and Inflammation, and Increases 25-Hydroxy-Vitamin D Levels in Blood

"This study reports a link between 25(OH)VD deficiency and a reduction in glutathione (GSH) in obese adolescents. The improvement in GSH status that results from cosupplementation with VD and l-cysteine (LC; a GSH precursor) significantly reduced oxidative stress in a mouse model of 25(OH)VD deficiency. It also positively upregulated VD regulatory genes (VDBP/VD-25-hydroxylase/VDR) in the … Continue reading Glutathione Stimulates Vitamin D Regulatory and Glucose-Metabolism Genes, Lowers Oxidative Stress and Inflammation, and Increases 25-Hydroxy-Vitamin D Levels in Blood

Glutathione metabolism in type 2 diabetes and its relationship with microvascular complications and glycemia

"We hypothesized that there is decreased synthesis of glutathione (GSH) in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) especially in the presence of microvascular complications, and this is dependent on the degree of hyperglycemia.Compared to non-diabetic controls, patients with T2DM have glutathione deficiency, especially if they have microvascular complications. This is probably due to reduced synthesis and increased … Continue reading Glutathione metabolism in type 2 diabetes and its relationship with microvascular complications and glycemia

Glutathione and Periodontal Health

"Glutathione, considered to be the master antioxidant (AO), is the most-important redox regulator that controls inflammatory processes, and thus damage to the periodontium. Periodontitis patients have reduced total AO capacity in whole saliva, and lower concentrations of reduced glutathione (GSH) in serum and gingival crevicular fluid, and periodontal therapy restores the redox balance. Therapeutic considerations … Continue reading Glutathione and Periodontal Health
