Can Glutathione Help Your Healing?
Glutathione, Master Cell Protector, Master Antioxidant
Cellgevity contains the natural glutathione-enhancing supplement that
we need to fight cellular inflammation, chemical and biological toxins,
as well as free radicals.
Every waking or sleeping moment, our
bodies are undergoing constant biological attacks and warfares - from
resisting viruses and bacterias, to smothering that cold, to countering
over-exertion and excessive build up damage. To add to the list includes
chemical toxins, heavy metals, free radical and radiation.
all these do is they damage cells, limiting function to sub-optimal (or
worse, poor cellular function); globally, this accelerates the
dying/decay/ageing process, triggering the onset of diseases, damage and
disabilities that are associated with ageing.
What glutathione does is that it defends our cells, at a cellular level, from these destructive oxidative agents.
A Quick Summary of Glutathione’s Benefits:
- Master Antioxidant - Recycles existing/used antioxidants
- Primary Detoxifier of the Cell (removes toxin, decreases poisoning)
- Powerful Chelator of Heavy Metals
- Protects the Immune Cell (keeps immunity tip top)
- Protector of Mitochondrial DNA (constant efficient energy)
- Protector of the Nucleus of the Cell (nucleus is like a brain to a cell; a healthy nucleus = healthy cell)
- Reduces Oxidative Stress (preventing cancer and aging)
- 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 more than 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.What this
means is that there is a lot of potential, hope into the function, role
and power of glutathione in the protection of our cells and how it helps
in ensuring optimal health and function.
Studies also show that people with higher glutathione levels:
- Have More Energy
- Recover Faster From Exercise
- Sleep Better At Night
- Have Greater Mental Clarity and Focus
- Have Less Inflammation and Pain
- Improve Joint Function and Integrity
- Have Better Immune Systems and Fall Sick Less Often
- Improve Health & Function of Every Cell, Tissue And Organ In The Body
At the same time, 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
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?
oxidative stress levels, ADD, AIDS, ALS, Arthritis, Asthma, Autism,
Cancer, Diabetes, Hepatitis B, Infections, Liver Disease, Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome, Eczema, Alzheimer’s Disease (dementia), Inflammatory
Bowel Disease, Stroke, Hepatic Dysfunction, Multiple Sclerosis (MS),
Neurogenerative Diseases, Parkinson’s Disease
A More In-Depth Look At GSH
(GSH) is an antioxidant, it prevents damage to important cellular
components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals and
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
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
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 that our gluthathione level depletes over time - is a recipe for disaster - just a waiting game.
It has multiple functions:
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
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
- 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.
I recommend Xtend-Life's Zupafood For Skin (read review here) for many different reasons.
First of all, their products are made in their own manufacturing facility, which is cGMP-compliant. cGMP is a rigid set of standards that covers everything from purity of
ingredients, bottling procedures, cleanliness of facility, training
protocols, and much more.
Also, it is a real mark of achievement that signifies that it is a real mark of product quality.
Xtend-Life also makes their products in a FDA-certified
facility as well. When coupled with GMP certification, this is a product
made with highly-rigorous standards.

To a certain extend, the Zupafood for Skin mirrors meal replacement products available on
the market but that's not at all — it is an
supplementary nutritional product, and its main functions is that it
will improve one’s skin but its impressive nutritional profile and
ingredient list make it a lot more.
Back to the product, the Xtend-Life company says it can offer
this list of health benefits due to its unique ingredient formulation.
The ingredients that this product has are:
- Kiwi fruit
- Grapeseed extract
- Red grape skin extract
- Apple fiber
- Green tea extract
- Collactive marine collagen
- Elastin polypeptides
- Aquamine TG
Lastly, “filler” ingredients are
- Natural Blueberry
- Malic Acid
- Citric Acid
- Natural Sweetener (Stevia Glycosides).
What brings this formula together is the combination of marine collagen
and aquamine TG. The other ingredients are every effective by themselves
(especially grapeseed extract and green tea extract) but they are more complementary/supplementary to the formula.
Collactive marine collagen and elastin
polypeptides “Collactive™ is made of low molecular weight marine
collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio as the dermis in human
skin.” Aquamine TG, too, has some powerful health advantages
It’s a sea-based plant source that is abundant in
magnesium (a vital mineral), calcium as well as 74 other trace
minerals so vital to the human organism regardless of your gender or age.
It comes from the red algae, Lithothamnion species, which is very rare.

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.
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.
