Super-Powered Immunity: The Forgotten Remedy

One of the most powerful things you can do to boost your immune system and aid its ability to fight off infectious intruders is also one of the least known. Many people have not even heard of the nutrient, glutathione, which is one of nature’s greatest treasures when it comes to fighting disease-causing microbes. Glutathione is an antioxidant nutrient that is produced in the cells of your body, primarily from three building blocks of proteins called amino acids, including cysteine, glutamine, and glycine

Even moderate changes in glutathione levels in the body have a profound effect on the functioning of immune system cells known as lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are the immune cells, known as natural killer cells, B cells and T cells, that attack invading bacteria, viruses, and other microbes. What’s more, the levels of this nutrient in your body could determine whether your body battles harmful disease or suffer from severe complications from an infection.

You might think that such an important, research-supported nutrient would be found in the medicine bag of every physician, yet most medical doctors have never heard of the nutrient, or ever studied it in school, and certainly do not prescribe it to their patients. Fortunately, a growing body of research brought this nutrient to the forefront of natural approaches to bacteria, viruses, and other conditions linked to harmful microbes, which may alert doctors to the importance of this readily-available nutrient.

Research in the International Journal of Medical Microbiology found that glutathione on its own or in combination with antibiotic drugs, may be effective in treating some bacterial infections. Additionally, glutathione has been discovered as the potential missing link in the prevention and treatment of serious viral-related complications. According to research in the medical journal ACS Infectious Diseases, a deficiency in the nutrient known as glutathione may be the cause of severe complications or death due to Covid-19. Another study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences confirmed the findings that a glutathione deficiency may be beneficial in dealing with severe disease symptoms and death linked to Covid-19.

Earlier research in the journal Biological Chemistry may provide the answers as to why glutathione may provide protection against viruses (and as this study also showed, against infectious bacteria as well). The researchers found that glutathione regulated the immune response, which not only helps the body attack foreign invaders like pathogens, it also prevents the immune system from overreacting to produce cytokine storms, which are potentially life-threatening inflammatory conditions.

For those suffering from autoimmune conditions, glutathione is particularly beneficial. Research published in the journal Autoimmunity Reviews found that glutathione intake helped to regulate the body’s immune response.           

Poor nutrition, aging, stress, and exposure to environmental and food toxins cause glutathione levels to wane over time. Additionally, lack of sleep or insomnia may contribute to reduced glutathione levels in the body.           

Most glutathione supplements simply do not absorb well so you’re basically throwing your money away when you purchase them. After many years of searching, I found a liquid glutathione supplement that absorbs remarkably well and which I personally use with great success, including significantly improved energy, mental clarity, and healthier skin. All the people I’ve recommended it to have also reported improved energy, immunity, and overall feelings of wellness when using, as well as potent anti-aging effects when it is used topically on their skin.
