Do We Need To Take Glutathione Supplements

Do we need to take glutathione supplements or can we get better results from food alone?

Glutathione is a key cellular component, known as the body’s most powerful antioxidant. It is a tri-peptide constructed from three amino acids through a special enzymatic process and appears in all cells and tissues. There is currently a great hype about glutathione supplementation, highly popularized as a “miracle” means to boost health, prevent disease and fight aging. But since the issue of glutathione supplementation involves lots of misinformation (similar to the issue of vitamin supplementation) it’s important to examine the facts.

A Huge Reason Why You Cannot Lose Fat by Defense Nutrition’s Ori Hofmekler

http://www.defensenutrition.com/ – One of the main reasons why people fail to lose body fat or fail to lose weight is the inability to recognize the main causes behind. You know, one of the most unaddressed causes for fat gain is the inflammatory factor. What many people fail to understand that fat gain is an inflammatory process. Moreover, this process is promoted by the fat tissues themselves, particularly the most bioactive tissues such as around the belly or next to the internal organs. These fat tissue produces pro-inflammatory hormones called cytokines. Most notable among them are TNF-alpha, and interleukin-6 which have been shown to cause insulin resistance and inhibit fat loss. So how do you counteract that?

This process is actually getting worse when you eat meat and animal products that are derived from overfed animals which their fat is also bioactive and you get all this hormone to your body which further promote inhibition of fat loss and fat gain.

One of the solutions is to eat anti-inflammatory foods, coming from plant vegetables; fruits, and dairy. In the dairy, the most notable anti-inflammatory food is whey protein, and the reason: there are two compounds that antagonize and counteract this pro-inflammatory, fat gaining hormones; one of them is calcium, and the other one is the amino acid leucine. The combination of both is extremely powerful to counteract this pro-inflammatory process and actually promote anti-inflammatory activity and fat loss.

The most important compound that calcium and leucine promote is called interleukin-15. Interleukin-15 is another cytokine that can be produced by muscle cells as well, but accelerated and promoted by the combination of calcium and leucine, particularly leucine.

You can find calcium and leucine in virtually all foods, but particularly in dairy, and the richest source in the world is whey protein. It’s one of the main reasons why whey protein has been linked to weight loss and leaning down. It has fat burning properties, and they are linked primarily to this effect. But make sure that your whey protein is coming from a whole source, not whey that is derived from skim milk or whey that is isolate. You really want to have a whole whey derived from a whole milk that contains all the minerals and the calcium you need, and that it is not denatured and has all the amino acids to support your metabolism.

Avoid Excessive Alcohol Consumption

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption. Minimize beer intake. The case of alcohol might seem paradoxical. Here is how in small serving alcohol triggers a stress response that is actually beneficial. However in large amounts such as several shots of liquor or equivalent mixes of alcohol and sugar (or fruit juices), alcohol causes a mirade of adverse effects including over-glycemic response, insulin resistance, increased liver stress and increased estrogen (increased 16 hydroxy estrogen metabolites) levels. Also note that the seemingly loud behavior of the drunk is not a reflection of high testosterone. A dysfunctional liver due to alcohol or chemical toxicity is a major contributor to insulin resistance and impaired fat metabolism.

Amazing Supplement
First day!!! I took the supplements & ate my grapefruit. I was shocked that my stomach didn’t start hurting from all the pills on an empty stomach. Then in a very short while I began to feel energized! I feel great all day. My appetite has calmed down so I’m not hungry & needing energy every couple of hours. It’s been an amazing experience. I’ve taken supplements for years but never experienced any like this. – Wolfe
