Are Low Glutathione Levels Keeping You From Being Immune Strong?

Glutathione is our body’s master antioxidant. It is produced and used by the liver to detoxify. While glutathione production naturally decreases with age, the problem is most people’s levels are being dramatically depleted by modern, everyday stressors.

But guess what research is also showing us?  Low glutathione levels appear to take COVID symptoms from mild to severe.

How do you know if you have low glutathione levels? Here are some common symptoms:

  • Lack of energy
  • Joint and muscle aches and pains
  • Foggy brain
  • Frequent infections
  • Poor sleep
  • Anemia

What depletes our glutathione levels?

  • Alcohol
  • Acetaminophen, (aka Tylenol)
  • Diabetes
  • Aging (affecting men more than women)
  • Heavy metals bind to glutathione. Ask yourself if there are heavy metals in your water. You can find out if there are heavy metals in your water here. you have toxins in your water, I recommend the Berkey water filter.
  • Diets high in fructose
  • Lack of vegetables

Here are the 5 Steps to increasing glutathione levels:

  1. Fasting. When we fast, our body creates ketones. Ketones repair the mitochondria in our cells. When the mitochondria is healthy, it will produce more glutathione. So, let’s work on powering it up! If you can do this with a 15 hour fast that’s great, but for many individuals it takes a 24 hour fast on a regular basis to get the ketones into our bodies.
  2. Detox. The more toxins we consume from our environment and our food, the more we deplete levels of glutathione and our immune response. Doing a 90-Day Detox is a great way to increase your body’s ability to produce glutathione and you can learn more about detoxing here.
  3. Consume good oils. When we consume bad oils or toxic oils, it harms our mitochondria and depletes glutathione levels.
  4. Foods. Adding cruciferous foods to your diet is crucial to increasing glutathione levels. Some of these foods are; broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, garlic, and onions.
  5. Supplement. Supplementation is a great way to boost levels of glutathione and other nutrients quickly! My favorite intracellular glutathione supplement is Gcel by Systemic Formulas.
