Bodytox glutathione - what is it?
Glutathione is the bodies master antioxidant and, unlike other antioxidants, it is found in almost every cell of the human body. The body naturally produces glutathione in the liver, making it vital for supporting its natural cleansing and free radical defensive capabilities.
Production of glutathione declines as we age, when we suffer from a poor diet, environmental toxins, stress, trauma, some medications and infections. These factors reduce protection from free radical damage to our healthy cells, protein, and DNA.
When the glutathione levels are sufficiently maintained, your body discovers its ability to repair and regenerate. Essential to eliminating toxins and keeping your body healthy and young, glutathione is vital for your body’s natural protection against free radical damage.
How do free radicals work?
Free radicals are molecules with a missing unpaired electron which makes them unstable as they attack other cells to steal their electron, in the process damaging the cell by reducing its function.
Free radicals are created from either normal cell metabolism i.e. when cells use oxygen to generate energy, or from external toxin factors; smoking, air pollution, chemicals, Xrays and exposure to the suns UV rays. Higher exposure to these factors equals more free radicals being created.
At low concentrations, free radicals are important and beneficial to health however if free radicals overwhelm the body's ability to regulate them, then a condition known as oxidative stress ensues.
Oxidative stress - what is it?
Oxidative stress can make the body age quicker. It can damage tissues which over time can lead to a variety of diseases.
A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is necessary for proper physiological function.
Glutathione is a tri-peptide consisting of amino acids glutamate, cysteine and glycine, which have an extra electron. Acting as an electron donor, it directly binds to the molecules with the missing electrons and neutralises them. Glutathione is one of the few nutrients that can neutralise the full spectrum of free radicals in the body.
Besides its antioxidant defence and free radical scavenging, glutathione regenerates other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E.
Why do I need glutathione?
The most obvious way to ensure that your body maintains optimum levels of glutathione is to limit exposure to external toxins, exercise regularly and get sufficient sleep. There are also dietary sources rich in glutathione however dietary food intake, along with many powders, capsule and tablet forms of glutathione supplements, are poorly absorbed by the body.
Selenium rich foods (chicken, fish, organ meats, cottage cheese, brown rice and Brazil nuts) are beneficial as selenium works by reactivating glutathione in the body. People with lower levels of glutathione are often selenium deficient.
Bodytox Glutathione + Selenium works differently from other oral supplement forms as the Glutathione & Selenium is encapsulated within millions of tiny phospholipid bubbles (liposomes) which are then transported around the body and absorbed directly into cells for maximum absorption.
How does liposomal work?
The active ingredients (glutathione and selenium) are encapsulated in micro-spherical liposomes which are made from a membrane material called phosphatidylcholine* which is the same material that surrounds our cells.
Due to the micro-spherical liposomes’ physiological indifference, the body recognises and transports the liposomal glutathione & selenium directly into our blood which then fuses on to the cells and releases the nutrients. The liposome protects its nutrient-rich content against harsh digestive processes, which many tablets and capsules cannot withstand. This ensures hi bioavailability with more intact glutathione & selenium making it into the blood and cells.
*Phosphatidylcholine helps repair and protect liver cells which form the protective barrier around your liver (s3) protecting it against toxicity and infection. It can also support cognitive function (s1) and may help support brain health function (s2)and keep cholesterol levels in check.
Why should I buy bodytox liposomal glutathione?
Up to four times (4x!!!) the glutathione content of other brands, with added selenium, makes our antioxidant power-house liposomal formula one of the highest strength products in the market, and better still, at a fair and very affordable price compared to similar products!
Manufactured in the UK to GMP standards it is free from preservatives, vegan and vegetarian friendly. Contain no Sugar, Preservatives, Alcohol, Soy or Gluten. Instead Bodytox Glutathione contain phospholipids from Sunflowers and Vitamin E.
We added selenium as an essential mineral for helping the body recycle and produce more glutathione, re-enforcing its function.
Bodytox Liposomal is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. The bottle of 300ml makes up to 60 servings, and you can take in 5ml to 10ml daily doses. Berry flavoured, our liquid liposomal glutathione can be taken directly from the spoon or mixed with water, smoothies, shakes, yoghurt, porridge, granola & more.
Depending on age, diet & lifestyle, take 5–10 ml (1 to 2 teaspoons) daily, equivalent to 200–400mg Glutathione & 27.5-55mg Selenium - respectively.
