Back in 1994, Dr. Robert Keller noticed that in his patients with immune disorders, their uric acid levels were very low. Through research he discovered that uric acid is the last antioxidant at the body's disposal after all the normal antioxidants have been exhausted. So if uric acid is the bodys last line of defense, Dr. Keller wanted to find out what the body's first line of defense was. His investigation and research led him to glutathione.
Glutathione is the most prevalent, powerful and multifunctional antioxidant and it is found in every cell of the body. Glutathione is a tripeptide (three proteins bonded together as one) that functions as an antioxidant and an antitoxin and is a major defense system against illness and aging. Through his research, Dr. Keller discovered that the glutathione level actually indicates the state of ones health and can predict longevity. So he did a clinical study and found people who are stressed, aging, lacking sleep or have a prolonged illness will utilize glutathione at an accelerated rate. This accelerated rate causes the body's defenses to weaken, increases the risk of illness and accelerates aging.
Dr. Keller now had to find a way to increase the body's glutathione level. He first tried taking glutathione orally but discovered that the acids in the stomach would break down the glutathione tripeptide into just 3 single proteins. So after many years of research, Dr. Keller created a supplement that is able to pass through the stomach and help the body to increase its production of glutathione. This product also was granted a Compositional Patent, which is usually only given to pharmaceuticals.
So, back to the question, how can glutathione help you?
Research has shown that anyone whose glutathione levels are low are much more susceptible to chronic illness. Research also shows that glutathione levels decline at a rate of 8% to 12% per decade starting around the age of 20. Add to this reduction with continual stress on the immune system such as illness, infection and environmental toxins and the levels start to plummet. So the body is in a vicious cycle. While your body needs glutathione for a productive immune system, a weakened immune system hampers the production of glutathione.
Here is where Dr. Kellers product steps in. It will provide the proper nutrients needed to promote the body's own ability to manufacture and absorb glutathione at the cellular level. It will also aids in liver support by destroying environmental poisons and helping the liver to function as the primary production site and storehouse for glutathione. This increased level of glutathione can manifest itself in many ways including:
Feeling and looking younger
More "natural" energy
Less joint and muscle pain
Better mental focus
Everyone will not necessarily feel all of these, but almost 100% of the 60 day clinical study group felt improvement in at least one of these areas.
Wouldn't you like to feel younger with more energy and less pain? I know from a personal standpoint that Dr. Keller's product has decreased my pain level. I am a firefighter with over 30 years of service. Over my career I have abused my back too many times to count. Because of this I have developed scoliosis (curvature) of the lumber vertebrae. This product cannot do anything to help the scoliosis, but it has reduced the pain where I rarely take Hydrocodone medication anymore. I am able to sleep through the night now without waking up because my back is hurting. If you've ever had back trouble, you know how great that is.
