The truth about oral glutathione supplements that your favorite brand does not want you to know Before anything else, we need to get one thing straight: KB is NOT GLUTATHIONE While it may be similar to glutathione in some respects, KB is not exactly the tri – peptide compound most users have spent a fortune on in a mistaken belief. What KB is exactly may surprise some, but not those who know a thing or two about peptide and amino acid absorption.
KB is WAY better than glutathione, that is what it is. It is one of the very few and perhaps the only oral glutathione supplement out there that can effectively raise glutathione levels in the body.
We know that the statement above may appear as too bold to most that are still in the dark about the truth about glutathione supplementation. We can assure you, however, that such bold claims about KB is backed by genuine, comprehensive studies that are published, peer reviewed and cited by the world’s leading authorities on the subject.
A QUICK REVIEW
Let us take a quick look at the basic truths that you may already know about having elevated glutathione levels in the body.
• It serves as antioxidant that rids the body of free radicals
• It helps you have fairer skin (which happens to be the leading reason why it is a very popular supplement in the country)
• It delays ageing
• It helps boost the body’s immune response
There are also other less popular benefits from having elevated glutathione levels in the body. These benefits include effectively helping the body become resistant to a number of diseases, retard the onset of degenerative diseases associated with old age, and as part of a therapeutic remedy for autism.
AND NOW THE TRUTH
Glutathione, when taken orally, will absolutely be of no help in raising your body’s glutathione levels. Allow us to rephrase that for clarity:
ORAL GLUTATHIONE CANNOT RAISE THE BODY’S GLUTATHIONE TO CLINICALLY SIGNIFICANT LEVELS.
This truth has been around since the 1990s when experts are still trying to find alternative ways raise the glutathione levels in the body effectively. Again, this may seem to be another bold claim, but it is one that is backed by tons of comprehensive studies. This article will also encourage and teach you how to look up the studies that are widely available on the internet for yourself later on this article. This article will likewise give you the ability to discern and stay away pseudo studies and pseudo websites that spew out lies about glutathione supplementation.
Glutathione is a tripeptide compound and it is just highly physiologically improbable for glutathione and other tripeptides for that matter, to be absorbed into the system through oral administration. For ingested proteins and peptides to be absorbed, they have to be broken down into simpler amino acids before it can enter the system. During the digestion process, the glutathione degrades and is expunged as waste. Whatever is left of it, which usually is a miniscule amount of broken down amino acids l-cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine, is no longer glutathione and has no ability whatsoever raise the glutathione levels in the body.
Oral glutathione, we repeat, just will not work and this has been proven by tons of studies time and again.
NOW, HERE IS WHY KB IS WAY BETTER
KB’s composition includes NAC and the components of glutathione l-cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. NAC or N-acetylcysteine is the centerpiece of KB’s one-of-a-kind and soon-to-be patented formulation. Leading authorities on the subject agree that NAC is the best oral supplement for raising glutathione levels in the body. It does so by spurring the body to produce and replenish its own glutathione supplies. NAC, as the experts would say, is a glutathione precursor or prodrug.
Simply put, you take NAC, your body makes more glutathione.
Once you take NAC, the system metabolizes it into l-cysteine. Its composition then spurs the body to start re-synthesizing it into glutathione starting with the l-cysteine. This is where the other components l-cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine play their part. To re-synthesize glutathione, the body will turn to its own stores of glutamic acid and glycine, which KB provides.
The cycle of glutathione synthesis repeats several times over until the l-cysteine from the NAC is used up. KB, however, extends this cycle by providing just a bit more of l-cysteine to trick the body into believing that it has more of the amino acid until the next dose of KB capsule. This means that with KB, the glutathione levels in the body is raised and that it maintains such high levels consistently, which is definitely way more that what other oral glutathione supplements can say about their product.
Complimenting the KB formulation is KB Rosehip, which is an organic Vitamin C supplement. Rosehip contain the most concentrated levels of naturally occurring Vitamin C. This vitamin has been proven to help the body in the synthesis of protein and peptides, which further boosts the effectiveness of the KB formulation.
WHAT ABOUT GLUTATHIONE INJECTIONS?
While it is true that injections is a good way of getting glutathione into the body, KB is still better. Glutathione injections have a short half-life. This basically means that it does not stay in the body that long. Glutathione that is produced by the body, on the other hand, has a longer half-life and stays in the body longer. This is the same reason why experts tell you to take at least two to three or even more glutathione injections per week.
Either you just take KB on a regular basis or get poked by a needle several times a week for less than desirable results. By the way, the KB regimen is also much, much more affordable than glutathione injections.
PROOF AND STUDIES
This is where we encourage you to see the proof our claims for yourself. An easy way to do so would be to proceed to www.examine.com, which is a website that is dedicated to compiling relevant studies about drugs and supplements, and their effectiveness. This website displays a link to all the studies that they have cited where you can actually pore over published papers of the study yourself.
This is the same website with around 114 scientific papers that says oral glutathione supplementation is absolutely useless and that NAC is better. To quote:
“Glutathione per se does not have a niche role in nutritional supplementation and when it does have efficacy it is perhaps the most expensive and inefficient means to the desired end. This is ultimately due to a few pharmacokinetic aspects, which render supplementation of glutathione per se mostly useless.”
As for NAC, Examine.com has 105 unique references that explains why it is the best at raising glutathione levels in the body. The website has this to say for NAC:
“N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is a prodrug for L-cysteine, which is used for the intention of allowing more glutathione to be produced when it would normally be depleted. Through glutathione buffering, NAC provides antioxidative effects and other benefits.”
However, please note that there is a distinction between a REAL study and studies that are uncontrolled and merely observational in nature. Relevant studies are those that are conducted with intensive research and with double-blind clinical trials. They are published in leading medical journals.
For example, a Japanese-brand glutathione claimed that a study on their product found that it is effective through oral administration. This was the opposite of the results of the study that showed that taking 1,000 milligrams in two separate doses per day for four weeks was unable to raise the body’s glutathione levels. You can see the results for yourself at the U.S. National Institutes of Health website with this linkhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3162377/.
FINAL WORD… FOR NOW
Rather than ramble on or try to upsell you into purchasing a KB set, we would like to encourage you once again to spend a little time to do your own research about glutathione supplementation. We would definitely hate to see you spend all your hard-earned money for a product that just simply do not work. As for ourselves, we have made a renewed commitment to share this information to more glutathione users out there who are still being duped by false claims made by their favorite brand.
Here’s an idea, though. While you are doing your own research about glutathione supplementation, why don’t you give KB a shot and find out for yourself why KB is way better than your favorite brand.
