Cellular Youth: Glutathione’s Impact on Aging Cells

Master Antioxidant Glutathione plays a tremendous role in well-being and overall good health for all individuals. But as we age, our Glutathione levels wane. Just as that is occurring, our bodies need this Master Antioxidant more than ever for its anti-aging, disease-fighting effects. Supporting optimal Glutathione levels with proper diet, exercise, stress reduction, and a supplement with proven efficacy – Auro’s Glutaryl – is more critical than ever.

Here’s why-

Glutathione Protects DNA from Mutations that Accelerate Age-Related Disease

Maintaining cellular vitality and proper functioning of cells can prevent cell mutation that can lead to age-related diseases. Glutathione provides powerful detoxification, allowing healthy functioning cells to have efficient DNA repair mechanisms, which means they can efficiently repair the damage. DNA repair mechanisms prevent the accumulation of mutations, which is vital as that is a factor for various age-related diseases like cataracts, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.

Glutathione Detoxes Harmful Toxins that Accelerate Aging

As the body’s Master Antioxidant, Glutathione protects cells from harmful oxidative stress. When cells and tissue have an abundance of stressors, also called oxygen-reactive species (ROS), they need adequate detoxification, which Glutathione provides to balance those reactive products; this is especially important as we age for two reasons:

  1. Aging cells are more prone to damage from oxidative stress. Aging cells have accumulated damage from ROS and other factors over time, which makes them more susceptible to more damage. 
  2. Many different factors that come with aging make cells more prone to damage, like hormone changes, lengthened environmental exposures, and weakened immune responses of aging cells, which can lead to cellular dysfunction and accelerated aging.

Glutathione Provides Needed Immune Support to Aging Cells

Glutathione plays a tremendous role in our immune function. As stated in the study, Immunomodulatory Effects of Glutathione, Garlic Derivatives, and Hydrogen Sulfide, “Glutathione (GSH) is required by the immune system for two important reasons: it protects host immune cells through its antioxidant mechanism, and it provides the optimal functioning of lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system.”  Aging cells are more vulnerable to disease and illness as the immune system’s ability to detect and remove damaged cells or pathogens is lessened, leaving them more vulnerable to oxidative stress. Supplementing Glutathione can help to ensure that free radicals are balanced, fending off the oxidative stress that can lead to sickness and disease.

Glutathione Helps Sustain Energy Levels as We Age

Mitochondrial function is the basis for energy levels in the body.  As we age, the decline in mitochondrial function is due to the accumulation of mutations and oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS). For energy-producing mitochondria to function well, they need protection from oxidative stress.  Glutathione’s critical role as an energy regulator is to support mitochondrial function by protecting cells from oxidative stress. By reducing oxidative stress, Glutathione indirectly promotes cellular energy production and can have a role in maintaining energy levels as we age.

Glutathione Helps With Chronic Inflammation, which is Associated with Many Age-Related Diseases

Glutathione’s anti-inflammatory properties have been long documented in studies. It can help modulate the body’s inflammatory response, potentially reducing the inflammatory burden on cells. Many illnesses and diseases have chronic inflammation at the origin, and with aging comes increased inflammation. This chronic low-grade inflammation is often a part of the aging process and is associated with a range of age-related health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. Glutathione powerfully reduces inflammation, decreasing levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that lead to inflammation.

Glutathione is your anti-aging best friend. Check out Dr. Nayan Patel’s book The Glutathione Revolution to learn how to increase levels of Glutathione as you age, and check out the powerfully potent Glutaryl. The powerful transdermal supplement delivers Glutathione with optimal efficacy.
