Rejuvenate Immunity: When we grow older, a drop present in our cell called glutathione, give rise to activity of free radicals that cause the damage to the function of immune. But if you take glutathione in a good quantity, these reserves can be restricted.
It was experienced at Stanford University School Medicines by the experts the effects of glutathione shortages on the cells of the body. The T cells, the main characters in the immune system, were disturbed when provided with 25 percent of glutathione of the normal level even in healthy people.
They could not work properly for the response to the signals of war of microbes. Also the famished cells vanished themselves, a strange phenomena that is called by experts “programmed cell death”.
Postscript: The glutathione is such a powerful thing that also prevents the viruses of AIDS when put into some tubes and reduces such viruses to spread about 90 percent. That is why, the AIDS patients have lower amount of glutathione. It is also under research to see its positive effects on HIV patients, to restore immune functioning.
Blocks General Cell Damage: The glutathione is also considered being the best because it helps to prevent the cells to neutralize and break down free radicals and just throw them out of the body. It is also the best-known factor to keep at least thirty substances that may cause cancer.
It also functions as a great leader to block the formation of free radicals by damaging peroxides that are the main factors in free radicals. This power of glutathione against free radicals may help you to understand why fruits and vegetables that are high in glutathione are beneficial against heart diseases and cancer.
If you eat such fruits and vegetables that are rich in glutathione, you will have half chances of getting such problems as compared with those who do not eat them.
Busts Up Dangerous Fat: You are also saved from harmful results caused by eating some dangerous fats if you take higher levels of glutathione. It actually cleanses the food or bad smelled fats in your body that are considered the companions in the attacks of free radicals.
If you provide sufficient amount of glutathione, none of the rancid fats will be present in the bloodstream for a long time. But if there a very low amount of glutathione in your intestinal tract and you eat a higher amount of these rancid fats, you may suffer a weaken defence and these fats will circulate all around your body that will give rise to factors responsible for aging.
