Discovering Glutathione and its Uses for Rejuvenating and Restoring Our Health

To sum, glutathione is a self-created enzyme that is crucial for our health (prevention of illnesses and diseases such as cancer, the usual cold, depression and so on - the list is too long to be listed in the summary - you can read below for more), but the natural production goes down over time as we age, and supplementing this is crucial to our surviving and thriving. The below data is taken from another website, as it doesn't seem "too sale-sy", I put the whole thing in as reference for you. There is a link at the bottom that will take you to the manufacturer's page if you'd like to purchase or find out more.

Every day, every moment, our bodies are constantly fighting battles against destructive agents such as free radicals, chemical toxins, heavy metals and radiation. They all damage cells, inhibit optimum function and accelerate the aging process and the onset of disease/disabilities often associated with aging. It is the master cell protector that defends our cells from these destructive agents.

A Quick Point-Form Summary of Glutathione's Functions:

  • Is Our Body's Master Antioxidant
  • Is The Primary Detoxifier of the Cell
  • Is A Powerful Chelator of Heavy Metals
  • Is The Protector of the Immune Cell
  • Is The Protector of Mitochondrial DNA
  • Is The Protector of the Nucleus of the Cell
  • Reduces Oxidative Stress
  • Reduces Intercellular Inflammation
  • Is The Re-Utlizing Agent of Ingested Antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C and E)
  • Reducing Agent for Haemoglobin, Allowing it to Transport Oxygen to Every Cell

Currently there is over 98,000 scientific studies and articles on glutathione recorded to PubMed, the official U.S. Government library of medical research, with newer research articles added daily. The articles reveals the remarkable function, role and power in the protection and function of our cells and how it supports in optimal health and function.

Studies also show that people with higher glutathione levels:

  • Have More Energy
  • Recover Faster From Exercise
  • Sleep Better
  • Have Greater Mental Clarity and Focus
  • Have Less Inflammation
  • Improve Joint Function
  • Have Better Immune Systems
  • Improve Health & Function of Every Cell, Tissue And Organ In The Body

BUT they also show the terrible consequences of low levels in individuals, and how those lower levels accelerate the aging process and increase vulnerability to the issues and problems related to aging.

Here's the problem: our glutathione levels in our bodies decrease about 10% - 12% every 10 years…but the amount of attacks on our cells do not decrease.

As we grow older, our natural production dips an average of 1-1.2% per year. As this happens, our energy levels start to dip and we start to become more tired than before doing the same stuff at the same intensity. Inflammatory levels spike at all cellular, tissue and organ level, causing us to have frequent bouts of illnesses and disease. To make matters worse, each time we get injured, infected or contract a disease, it wipes out more of our already-decreasing levels.

What are some conditions associated with low levels in an individual?

  • Higher oxidative stress levels
  • ADD
  • AIDS
  • ALS
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Hepatitis B
  • Infections
  • Liver Disease
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Eczema
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Stroke
  • Hepatic Dysfunction
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Neurogenerative Diseases
  • Parkinson's Disease

A More In-Depth Look At GSH

Glutathione (GSH) is an antioxidant, it prevents damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and peroxides.

How it works is that it is a carrier of electron and works by donating an electron to an antioxidant that is destabilized resulting in a renewed antioxidant (that's why it's dubbed the master antioxidant).

When it donates its electron, it becomes a disulphide GSSG. GSSG can be activated back to become glutathione reductase using the NADPH process as an electron donor, and thus the cycle of recycling antioxidants work, and that's the beauty of glutathione.

Although it is created naturally by our physical bodies, the production decreases on average of 1-1.2% per year. This may seem insignificant, but if we take a closer look at it, factoring in the fact that the amount of destructive agents we are exposed to daily, plus the fact te

It has multiple functions:

  • It is the primary/major endogenous antioxidant produced by our cells for our cells, which serves directly to neutralize free radicals and reactive oxygen compounds, as well as maintaining exogenous antioxidants such as vitamin C and E in their reduced forms.

  • It regulates the nitric oxide cycle, which is crucial for life

  • It's used in metabolic and biochemical processes such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, prostaglandin synthesis, amino acids transport and enzyme activation (this means that every system in the body is affected by the glutathione system; primarily the immune system, the nervous system, the gastrointestinal system and the cardiovascular system)

  • Vital function in the metabolism of iron. Yeast cells that are depleted or containing toxic levels of GSH features intense iron-starved-like-mode and followed by impairment of extra-mitochondrial enzymes…followed by death.


Usually in the normal ways of raising levels by direct oral supplementation is difficult, and this is because orally taken GSH is not well absorbed. Why this happens is that it is broken down in the stomach, unless it is well protected, in the case of MaxOne GSH, which is protected by RiboCeine.

Currently, the autoship and deliveries are provided to the following countries: Australia, Canada, Colombia, Singapore, America (US), Philippines and New Zealand.

Deficiencies includes but is not limited to:

HIV/AIDS, chemical and infectious hepatitis, myalgic encephalomyelitis chronic fatigue syndrome ME / CFS, prostate and other cancers, cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, radiation poisoning, malnutritive states, arduous physical stress, and aging, and has been associated with suboptimal immune response. Many clinical pathologies are associated with oxidative stress and are elaborated upon in numerous medical references. Lower/lowered levels is also strongly seen in wasting and negative nitrogen balance seen in cancer, AIDS, sepsis, trauma, burns and even athletic overtraining. In this cases, glutathione supplementation can reduce and oppose those processes, and in a study of AIDS, there has been data that revealed improved survival rates.

Mental Health

Schizophrenia and bipolar disorders are associated with lowered levels of GSH. Data suggests that oxidative stress may be a factor underlying the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia. Diminished GSH levels increases cellular vulnerability towards oxidative stress and replenishment of glutathione using N-acetyle cysteine has been shown to reduce symptoms of both disorders.


Read on GSH in cancer prevention and treatment here.

There is some preliminary results that indicate glutathione changes the level of reactive oxygen species in isolated cells grown in a lab, which may reduce/diminish/cut down on cancer progression, though it has not been tested on a human. One thing that was noted is that in a person who already has cancer who has developed resistance to a number of chemotherapeutic drugs, by increasing the glutathione in the body, the bone marrow, breast, colon, larynx and lungs were protected from cancers.

Currently, MaxOne has the glutathione which is the easiest to absorb because of RiboCeine technology. To find out more about MaxOne, please go straight to Max International website.
