We all want to live optimally as we move into our later years to fully enjoy those golden times and moments.
Going through an aging process, isn’t just about using the latest cream or doing the trendiest facial procedures. Aging goes deeper, like way deeper.
If we understand how Glutathione can benefit you through your aging process, we can assure that you will be moving forward to create a better quality of life.
Oxidative stress is the culprit to most significant chronic diseases from neurological conditions like Parkinson’s, Alzheimers to heart disease, stroke, to glaucoma.
Oxidative damage and the elimination of free radicals is the underlying approach with most anti-aging procedures.
Glutathione is the key; it is the most powerful antioxidant to eliminate free radicals which destroy cellular tissues.
Researchers have stated we must have higher levels of glutathione if we want to stay youthful and live longer.
Glutathione diminishes as we age, and laboratory studies on aging show a deficiency in all aging creatures from mosquitos to other creatures such as mice.
All creatures and living species have glutathione.
Dr. Calvin Lang looked at age groups 20-40, 40-60, 60-80 and 80-100
The youngest group had adequate levels of glutathione, but the second group, 14% of 40-60 year olds had significant lower levels, while the 60-80 year olds, 53% of this group had detrimental low levels.
This study indicates how imperative it is to be increasing our glutathione levels, not just to help us age beautifully, but to work preventatively against disease.
Research has also shown that having a lower body weight and restricting the amount of food we eat in a day can help promote longevity. Portion control and intermittent fasting will help to regulate blood sugar.
Since glutathione levels fall as we age, that makes us more susceptible to the toxicity from pollution, drugs and processed & GMO foods.
Aging is also associated with a declining immune system. As our immune system ages, our T-lymphocytes undergo serious changes, which makes us more susceptible to acquiring viruses and other threats.
Aging isn’t just defined by how we look, but what goes on internally, defines what truly happens externally.
