The Truth About Oral Glutathione Supplementation Revealed
Glutathione is probably one of the most-hyped health supplements yet basically misunderstood. With so many brands being offered in the market today, how well do you really know this super supplement which is famous to Filipinos who want to have a whiter, fairer skin?
Not too many people know that glutathione is in fact the most potent antioxidant currently known to man. The human body naturally produces glutathione and considered most important because it is found within the cell. Aware that a big number of Filipinos want to lighten their skin color, most glutathione companies’ marketing strategy have strong focus in its properties to make one’s skin fairer and at the same time, protecting it from ravages of ageing.
There’s one thing that so called experts in the industry are reluctant to boldly state one unmistakable fact: L-Glutathione is poorly absorbed orally— whether reduced, oxidized, or any other forms. Glutathione is a single bond tri-peptide thiol consisting of three amino acids which are cystine, glutamic acid, and glycine. When taken orally, l-cysteine loses 85 percent of its sulfur group, the active component of glutathione during the digestion process. This inherent weakness of glutathione is due to its unstable bonded, tripeptide form which makes it susceptible to stomach enzyme attack. Simply put, this means that only less than half of the supplemental glutathione is absorbed through the digestive system.
Some glutathione brands are formulated with alpha lipolic acid (ALA) which is supposed to be a glutathione booster. However, ALA is yet another form of unstable acid that loses much of its sulfur and sulfuhydryl components—which is practically useless as a glutathione booster.
Taking all these studies to heart, the KB glutathione plus nac (we called it kb glutatione activator plus nac or simply as KB glutanac has come up a unique formulation of glutathione, the only kind that is available in the market today. It is complete with three free-form amino acid components l-cysteine, glycine, glutamic acid plus formulated with N-ACETYLCYSTEINE (NAC) and cystine, which is another glutathione precursor. To further complement this one-of-a-kind blend that is recommended to be taken once a day only, the complete package also comes with a 30capsules KB rosehips, which is also a great help in amino acid absorption because it aids in its synthesis.
But what is NAC? Dr. Robert Atkins of the famed “Atkins’ Diet” emphasized that glutathione cannot be discussed apart from NAC. It has a property to raise the body’s glutathione level that cannot be achieved by oral supplementation alone, thus considered as the best glutathione booster. Glutathione levels cannot be increased by orally ingesting it since it is being processed inside the cell.
However, the manufacture of glutathione in cells depends on the concentration of its precursor, cysteine. Thus, supplements that increase glutathione must provide this amino acid. The fact remains that glutathione levels cannot be increased by ingesting oral cysteine because it is potentially toxic and spontaneously destroyed in the gastrointestinal tract. N-acetylcysteine is the bioavailable form of cysteine and dramatically increases the body’s production of glutathione, the brain’s most important scavenger of free radicals. Undoubtedly, NAC is far better in raising the body’s glutathione levels than just glutathione alone—and this fact can be easily confirmed by researching about glutathione supplementation via internet.
Silly as it may sound, others will mislead you that glutathione is known as a skin whitener. The complete fact is this: skin will only become fairer and younger looking if there’s a precursor that can increase the glutathione levels. Furthermore, it is a great injustice to peddle around the idea of raising the body’s glutathione levels as a mere skin whitening method.
To those who abhor the idea of changing Filipinos’ envied classic brown color, here are other reasons why you should consider taking glutathione supplement with NAC: it serves as an antioxidant, immune system booster, detoxifier, helps the body rid itself of strong metals, plus NAC is proven to detoxify the kidneys, since it is considered as a good liver cleanser. Smokers who are experiencing bronchopulmonary disease such as chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, asthma, sinusitis, and pneumonia are advised to take NAC, because it reduces the viscosity of the mucous. Aside from that, it is also recommended that persons who have autism, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, chronic fatigue, HIV, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and those who are suffering from acetaminophen toxicity should take it. But does everyone really need Kyusoku Bihaku or glutathione in general? The answer is yes. Even if you are relatively healthy, has a sensible diet, and with low-stress lifestyle, you still can benefit from a preventive nutritional program that will build up your body’s nutrient reserves, balance, while detoxifying it at the same time. That way, you will not be afraid of being deficient that may lead to breakdown and illness.
