The Growing Popularity Of Acetyl-Glutathione Benefits
April 24, 2019
Acetyl-Glutathione is becoming a hugely popular supplement since its very recent discovery.
This supplement allows people to effectively increase Glutathione levels without costly IV treatments, making this master antioxidant available through a pill or capsule. Glutathione pills have been around for quite a while; however, they have never been the most effective way to increase cellular Glutathione levels. This is because Glutathione is quickly destroyed during the digestive process, leaving only a fraction of intact Glutathione for absorption.
In the past the most effective way to increase Glutathione levels without spending an arm and a leg on costly IV treatments is to supplement the precursors that allow our bodies to produce Glutathione naturally. Reduced glutathione is acted upon by peptidases almost immediately in the blood and tissues and thus loses its ability to enter cells and act intracellularly. This happens in a very short period of time and thus IV glutathione while having a remarkable impact on metabolism is short lived. Years ago, it was much harder and much more expensive to supplement Glutathione levels, with the medical breakthrough of Acetyl-Glutathione though, it is much easier, cheaper and readily available to everyone to supplement and improve not only longevity, but quality of life most importantly. Acetyl-Glutathione is available exclusively at Murray Avenue Apothecary.
One popular supplement can be used to increase endogenous Glutathione production and efficiency, the precursor N-Acetyl Cysteine. N-Acetyl Cysteine or NAC plays an integral role in promoting Glutathione production within the cell, as well as recycling oxidized Glutathione in order to rid the body of toxins and maintain high levels of Glutathione at all times. While supplementing precursors such as N-Acetyl Cysteine are an effective way to improve Glutathione levels, it is not nearly as direct or as quick as supplementing Acetyl-Glutathione directly. When supplementing in tandem, NAC and Acetyl-Glutathione hold extreme health benefits that may outweigh any individual benefits of these super nutrients.
Speaking of synergy, adding CoQ10 (or Ubiquinol if over 40 years of age), which benefits cellular energy production, is an excellent idea. It is particularly useful for individuals with heart issues or those who want to help prevent heart disease. CoQ10 benefits range nearly as wide as the benefits of Acetyl-Glutathione, when taken together they can not only dramatically improve your health and well-being, but increase stamina, cognitive function and make you feel years younger.
It comes as a surprise to most people that our Glutathione levels are actually lowest when we fall ill, they also drop significantly year after year as we age. This makes it very important to supplement Acetyl-Glutathione and NAC daily once you enter adulthood, it may seem early, but Glutathione levels begin to drop after age 20.
Enhanced Absorption of Acetyl-Glutathione
As mentioned earlier, Glutathione has a very hard time being absorbed by our bodies, breaking down before it has a chance to permeate our stomach wall. Essentially you are throwing money down the toilet because those Glutathione pills you bought have less than a 5% absorption rate. This has been remedied with the discovery of Acetyl-Glutathione. In layman’s terms they simply wrapped the Glutathione molecule in a shield. This shield not only protects the Glutathione molecule from harm when inside the digestive tract, it also ushers the master antioxidant directly through the stomach lining and into our bloodstream to be distributed to every cell in our body in a very timely fashion compared to traditional methods.
Acetyl-glutathione is made by adding an acetyl group at any one of the three possible positions of the tripeptide. This molecule is then transported to all other tissues. When a molecule is acetylated it easily dissolves in the cell membrane. Acetyl-Glutathione is easily assimilated into the membrane inside of the cell and then is allowed to perform its powerful antioxidant and metabolic regulatory effects without prior decomposition by peptidases.
Acetylation is used with aspirin as it allows molecules to more easily pass through the blood brain barrier. Acetyl-Glutathione was patented in 1995. The makers received their patent with the claim that acetylating glutathione would enable it to pass through cellular barriers into the liver more easily. Topically, PALMITATED Glutathione acts longer and is protected even longer from the peptidases. One teaspoon of our topical Palmitated Glutathione will yield 250mg Glutathione (GSH).
Acetyl-Glutathione Benefits Your Health Like Nothing Else!
Acetyl-Glutathione helps every aspect of your body, health and cellular function. It is present in each and every cell in your body, and every cell in every living organism on the planet. It plays the kingpin role when it comes to detoxifying our cells and maintaining healthy cellular production and function. Think A.I.D. -- ANTIOXIDANT, IMMUNE BOOSTER, DETOXIFIER! Glutathione is the most powerful and prevalent antioxidant and detoxifier of intracellular (inside the cell) tissue.
Some of the more popular Acetyl-Glutathione benefits are those to do with liver disease, kidney health and cognitive health and function. Acetyl-Glutathione has such a profound effect on these three areas because of its antioxidant role, literally going through each cell, latching onto harmful toxins, free radicals and chemicals, flushing them out of our system before they have a chance to accumulate and manifest into potentially life-threatening health conditions. Our liver and kidneys are often overloaded with toxins from our modern environment, lifestyle and dietary choices, bombarding the organs responsible for cleansing our bodies. An overworked liver causes inflammation and eventually cirrhosis and liver failure, all the while it is pouring the excess toxins back into our bloodstream to be distributed across our bodies, accumulating in our brain, tissues, heart and eventually leading to more severe and varied conditions beyond liver disease.
Every person who lives in our current toxic world, has ANY inflammation like COPD, Emphysema, Asthma, Liver disease, Arthritis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Alzheimer’s Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, a high CRP, High Sed rate or who reaches for Advil® or Aspirin is a candidate for our Acetyl-Glutathione oral or Palmitated Glutathione topical. Acetyl-Glutathione is too beneficial to ignore its effects and potential to improve your health and lifestyle. Aging may not be preventable, but we can delay the signs and symptoms of the disease of aging!
