Is Glutathione Safe and is it Safe For the Liver


By Lindley Miras and Cecille Miras

Glutathione - small protein composed of 3 amino acids called cysteine, glutamic acid and glyceine, produced normally by the body in response to today's environment such as pollution in the air we breath, water we drink, chemicals & pesticides in the food we eat that cause damages in our cells & system.

Glutathione is the master anti-oxidant and central detoxifier of the body that protects body by targeting & destroying reactive oxygen molecules & free radicals. It has been widely heralded for its importance for good health and long life.

An antioxidant found in every cell in our bodies, glutathione is vital to the detoxification process. It binds to toxins and transforms them into a substance that the kidneys and liver can excrete from the body.

Glutathione helps our immune system and organs function normally. Low glutathione levels are linked to neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease, and can be a factor in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Gastrointestinal Inflammation, Atherosclerosis, Cataracts, Improper Hormone Regulation, and even Cancer.

Cells vital to the immune system cannot multiply without sufficient glutathione and therefore cannot produce as many antibodies to kill unwanted cells. Ultraviolet and other radiation, viral infections, environmental toxins, household chemicals, drugs, surgery, burns, inflammation and dietary deficiencies can all deplete glutathione.

Glutathione has no adverse side effects and offers only life-enhancing qualities, so it is important to support its production within our bodies.

A person who is exposed to more toxins is said to use up his supply of glutathione. Without the protection of glutathione, cells will die at a faster rate, leading to quicker aging and a higher risk of developing diseases induced by toxins such as carcinoma. The whitening of the skin is said to be just a side effect of this anti-oxidant medication when the dosage is doubled.

L Glutathione has no known side effects or interactions even if given orally in prolonged use. However there are at least two known drug interactions. Remember that you must never take L Glutathione if you are being given an anti-psychotic medication such as Haloperidol or an chemotherapeutic drug like Cisplatin.

Regarding the safety of glutathione in the liver, it is said that ...

"The level of glutathione in the liver is critically linked to the liver's capacity to detoxify."

This means that the higher the glutathione content, the greater the liver's capacity to detoxify harmful chemicals. Typically, when we are exposed to chemicals like alcohol which can damage the liver, the concentration of glutathione in the liver is substantially reduced. This reduction makes the liver susceptible to damage.

Beware! Not all glutathione out in the market are safe

What type of L Glutathione preparations must be AVOIDED?

L glutathione preparations that are in combinations with the following:

Tyrostat (L tyrosine):

1. Their oral format is still highly questioned by clinicians.

2. This is used only for topical consumption and not to be taken orally.

3. There were reports that even their hair turned white and painful feeling and firming of the breasts.

Goat/Sheep Placenta Extract:

1. Not recommended to be taken orally.

2. The usual complaints of users are they get pimples and they get fat.

Vitamin A and E:

1. The vitamins can lead to hyper vitaminosis which is toxic to our body with prolonged use.

2. Fat-soluble vitamins (such as Vitamin A, D,E and K) are metabolized and hydrolyzed in the liver. With prolonged use, fat soluble vitamins can be detrimental to one's health since an excess of these preparations will not just simply be excreted; they will just be stored in the liver. This is the reason why doctors advise their patients to rest their liver after at least a month of taking fat-soluble vitamins.

3. Water-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin C and B-complex, when not used by the body, will just be excreted via urine, bile or faces
