LipoCeutical Glutathione | Readisorb
is a naturally occuring antioxidant that functions to: Protect cells against free radicals that cause oxidation damage.
Liquid form that is taken orally
Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants that the body produces and is used to bind and remove toxins, including heavy metals from the body. According to recent research by Dr. Jill James, most children within the autism spectrum are significantly deficient in glutathione and this deficiency may significantly contribute to the symptoms associated with autism. It is believed by several autism researchers who presented at the Autism One Conference, including Dr. Mady Hornig, Dr. Boyd Haley, and Dr. Mary Megson, that mercury poisoning disrupts the transsulfurration metabolic pathway, reducing the body's natural production of glutathione. A study by G. Zeevalk presented at the Neuroscience 2009 conference in Chicago indicates that our Liposmal Glutathione was 100 more potent than other forms in replenishing intracellular glutathione.
Impaired ability to detoxify and protect cells from damage may lead to brain damage, including impaired ability of neurons to communicate with each other, impaired proliferation of nerve cells during early childhood development, and the die-off of neurons within the brain. Increasing levels of glutathione protects the brain and other parts of the body from this damage.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione (GSH) is a short string of amino acids called a peptide. It is composed of three amino acids: glycine, glutamine and cysteine. It is one of the main antioxidants in the cell and is considered a "key antioxidant" in the function of cells.
The functions of glutathione include:
* Protects cells against free radicals
* Removes toxins
* Enhances immune function
* Regulates protein and DNA growth
Glutathione tends to be deficient in those suffering from chronic auto-immune and neurological degenerative diseases including Autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Heart Attack and Stroke, and Liver Disease. Additional diseases affected by glutathione deficiency include: HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Seizure, Sickle Cell Anemia.
What are Liposomes?
Liposomes are small spheres (100-500 nanometer size), or liquid bubbles, made from Essential Phospholipids (EPL). EPL are natural components of human and animal cell membranes. A continuous supply of EPL, or its constituents, is essential for cell maintenance.
In its simplest form, the outer portion of the liposome is fat soluble and the inner portion is water soluble. This makes liposomes ideal for carrying water soluble materials into the body.
In this product the liposome is wrapped around glutathione.
The following study revealed that liposomes create an opportunity to carry materials into the body that would otherwise not be orally absorbed into the system.
Studies in humans show that the absorption of phospholipids is higher than 90%. The study demonstrates that 40 - 80% of EPL is incorporated into the HDL. HDL (high density lipoprotein) is the so called "good cholesterol" that helps protect against heart attack. A portion of the EPL is absorbed un-metabolized and accounts for the relative long lifetime (48 hours) of liposomes in humans. (Zierenberg, O., S.M. Grundy, J. Lipid Research 23 (1982) 1136-1142)
Advantages of Liposome-Enclosed Glutathione
- It is better tasting because it uses sweet tasting glycerine as a preservative.
- It is highly stable and does not have to be expensively shipped on ice, providing a savings of typically $8 on shipping. As per the manufacturer's guidelines, we ship it by 2nd Day Priority mail.
- If used within six months, it can be stored at room temperature (between 65-75 degrees Farenheit)
- It does not contain Sodium Benzoate, which may be problematic for some individuals within the autism spectrum. Researchers have found significant reductions in hyperactive behavior during when artificial colors and sodium benzoate were removed from the diet. Although Sodium Benzoate is not listed as a banned ingredient in the Feingold Diet for ADD/ADHD, the diet was originally developed in the 1970's and new additives that are suspected of being problematic have not been added to the official Feingold list of banned ingredients. However, many people on the Feingold diet eliminate Sodium Benzoate as well from their diet, along with other additives. For more information on this diet, please visit the feingold.org web site.
LipoCeutical Glutathione | Readisorb
Lecithin: Lecithin is important to every living cell in the body. The liposomes (Essential Phosphlipids) in LipoCeutical Glutathione are derived from lecithin. The lecithin is derived from oil, not protein, extracted from soy. Soy allergens, if present in lecithin, would be found in the protein fraction. The possibility of allergic reaction to this product is very low. Lecithin is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for human consumption with the "GRAS" (Generally Recognized as Safe) status.
Glycerin: Also known as glycerol, glycerin is used as a sweetener and as a preservative. Glycerol is a normal product of fat metabolism and is readily converted to glucose for metabolism. When the body uses stored fat as a source of energy, glycerol is released into the bloodstream. The glycerin used in LipoCeutical Glutathione is derived from palm oil. (Not corn) It is on the US Food and Drug Administration list of ingredients that are GRAS. Glycerin is used in toothpaste, mouthwash and cough syrups.
Potassium Sorbate: The other preservative, potassium sorbate, is present to prevent yeast and mold growth. It is extremely safe and is also used to preserve cheese, wine and baked goods. It is metabolized in the body to water and carbon dioxide. The potassium sorbate in this product is less than a quarter of a percent. (0.25%)
