Smile What is the Brain Glutathione Connection

Since glutathione is in every cell of our body, then brain glutahtione levels would seemingly be critical in brain functioning. It would only seem natural that glutathione would be there to protect the brain.

It is a no-brainer that the gray box inside our heads is involved with all bodily functions.

One of those functions is the neural (nerve) transmissions involved in then normanl brain operation. Could brain glutathione levels also affect things like thinking and sleep?

Haven't time for a full answer but be aware that the reason Vitamin D is so important for Neuroprotection is because it upregulates the production of glutathione as indeed does the improvement of melatonin secretion.

The trouble with getting older (and I'm starting at 35yrs and older) is that our natural ability to secrete both Vitamin D3 AND Melatonin declines year on year therefore we have to try harder to ensure we get UVB exposure over all our skin surface and improve our circadian rhythm (bright light daytime, subdued light evening, pitch dark bedrooms) or understand how best to use the relevant supplements effectively. If we leave neuroprotection until the point we notice symptoms of cognitive impairment it is too late.

We will have lost 70% of our brain capacity and have set in motion the cascade of consequences from which there is no return and the best we can hope for is to slow the inevitable decline and to be honest I've made it clear that if I lose my ability to think/act for myself I'd rather not have any future life that I was not sufficiently cognisant to enjoy or be aware of lengthened unnecessarily.

So the time for vitamin D, melatonin, coconut oil, curcumin, resveratrol, omega 3 and green tea (all neuroprotective) along with exercise where possible, is NOW. Don't wait till it's too late.

It's also worth pointing out that these are all anti oxidants as well as anti inflammatory agents. We can all reduce the potential for oxidation by donating blood regularly. Particularly menopause for women should be the time to start donating regularly to maintain the advantage women have while reducing iron overload in monthly periods. If men want to live as long as women they should start donating blood as teenagers and continue as long as possible.

Based on your experienced was it glutathione or the precursor's that's now available by this Dr. Keller who I have benefited so well in a little over a year. His research provide the unique precursor's to where it allowed your body to make it's own, never been done before.

*Initial "de-toxing" -- this could include mikd headeaches, diarrhea-, constipation-, etc. Although most people don't experience and of these. If you do this is a sign of (1) the product is working, and (2) you need it worse than someone who does not nticeable de-tox. If you do noticeably de-tox, it should only last for 3-4 days. If your de-tox happens to be stronger than you want to endure, they would just cut back to 1-2 capsules 1-2 times a day and gradually increase.

The only thing I had experience was a slight headache for about a day 1/2, but the process has been a pleasant experience for me. Please research this Dr. Robert Keller, I think your findings will be worth your time.

God Bless!

This a multi level marketing product and this 'testimonial' reads like a typical MLM distributors talk. At $85 a month, there is probably a large amount of that going in commission.

If anybody wants to try Glutathione you can get sublingual caps.(Glutathione is not absorbed orally).

http://www.iherb.com/Source-Naturals...lets/1407?at=0

Warning- Anybody undertaking chemotherapy at present(or about to), should not try to raise glutathione levels. Glutathione will protect the cancer cells from the chemo,or any other treatment that tries to destroy them.

Dr Francisco Contreras of The Oasis Of Hope Hospital, says one of his biggest problems in treating cancer is the way cancer cells gather up the body's glutathione around themselves for protection.

He uses Amygdalin, which releases cyanide against the Glutathione and exposes the cancer cell to the mixture of alternative treatments he uses.

You can get a free copy of his book 'Dismantling Cancer ' by phoning the hospital for a copy which describes all his treatments and approaches to cancer.

http://www.oasisofhope.com/

or you can download the book if preferred.

http://www.oasisofhope.com/media/pdf/hmh_book_oasis.pdf

I wonder if these MLM distributors warn any cancer patients on chemo not to buy their product?

Hi Ted,

Thanks for the informative answer. Just wondering though, do you recommend coconut oil compared to fish oil?

Currently I take melatonin, fish oil, Vit D, kelp & Reduced Glutathione, curcumin and drink green tea daily. Also wondering if you have experience with Fo Ti?

=)

However beneficial coconut oil is, it contains no omega3. It is omega6 and contains a number of beneficial acids.
