Eternal L-Glutathione + Alpha Lipoic Acid
L-Glutathione + Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a combination of two nutrients that is L-Glutathione, which is a peptide and Alpha-Lipoic Acid which is a fatty acid. These are the two important and powerful antioxidants that are imperative to the overall health of the body cells and are the body’s essential health aid.
L-Glutathione (GSH), a miraculous tripeptide (three amino acids) which comprises of cysteine, glutamic Acid and glycine is probably the most important cellular defense that allows the body to prevent and fight infections and disease. It is the body's essential health aid - antioxidant, immune booster and detoxifier. No other antioxidant is as imperative to overall health as GSH. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, subsequently, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses, cancer and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins.
GSH is produced naturally by the liver, but also found in fruits, vegetables, and meats. The level of GSH in our cells is predictive of how long we will live. Research suggests that GSH levels begin to decrease in the human body starting around age 20, declining about one percent per year thereafter. Low GSH levels are linked to health challenges and diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, hepatitis, AIDS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, atherosclerosis, pregnancy complications, cataracts, asthma, autism, bronchitis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, male infertility, migraines, osteoporosis, pain, poor eyesight, PMS, psoriasis, wrinkles, low sex drive, chronic fatigue and cirrhosis.
Benefits of L-Glutathione
- Enhancing the immune system
- Antioxidant and free radical scavenger
- Regulator of other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E
- A Detoxifying Agent
- Slows down aging process
- Improves the skin
- Reduces muscles and joint discomfort.
- Improves mental focus and clarity.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a fatty acid found naturally in the body and also known as lipoic acid and thioctic acid. The structure of the lipoic acid molecule is an eight-carbon dithiol compound. Because of the two thiol groups, it is a powerful antioxidant. These thiol groups are very good at accepting free radicals and neutralising them.
ALA also enhances the antioxidant functions of vitamin C, E and glutathione. Both ALA and glutathione recycle vitamin C and E by increasing the antioxidants power of glutathione. ALA helps liver cells recover from toxins. Besides that, ALA has been proven to chelate, or bind to toxic metals which are contributors to oxidative stress, helping to remove them from the body.
ALA is soluble in both water and fat; hence it is able to cross the blood brain barrier. This property enables it to enter all parts of the nerve cell and protects it from damage. It is needed by the body to produce the energy for our body's normal functions as ALA converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy too.
Benefits of Alpha-Lipoic Acid
- Helps to sustain the health of our brain, tissues and organs through the production of cell membranes.
- An antioxidant itself and also enhances the antioxidant functions of vitamin C, E and glutathione.
- Helps in peripheral neuropathy (caused by diabetes and other conditions, such as Lyme disease, alcoholism, shingles, thyroid disease and kidney failure)
- It lowers inflammation, may protect brain, stroke, multiple sclerosis, depression, Schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, anxiety and Alzheimer’s.
- Maintains a glucose balance in the body and helps to transfer glucose from the blood to the cells.
Eternal L-Glutathione (GSH) and Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA), why the combination?
L-Glutathione (GSH) is one of the main antioxidants your body naturally produces while Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful supplement to help prevent oxidative stress. Hence, Eternal L-Glutathione and Alpha-Lipoic Acid combines the goodness of GSH with ALA, an energy producing nutrient. The addition of ALA further enhances the production of GSH, which is very important in the cell’s ability to bind to and dispose of excessive and potentially damaging metals such as arsenic, copper, cadmium, cobalt, iron, lead, mercury, and nickel, thereafter, increases our ability to detoxify from pollutants and toxins.
The body’s benefits from the GSH increases significantly as it is utilized in every system in the body, especially the nervous system and the immune system. GSH is needed for DNA repair, protein synthesis, transport of amino acids and in enzymatic reactions. As ALA promotes and enhances GSH levels, it too is important for the function of all systems including the nervous and immune system.
