Navacka says…I was advised to use a supplement Glutathione to rejuvenate body sells. Supposedly, this supplement helps keep cells in good condition and therefore promote better health and skin. Nonetheless, according to material that I found I understood that the best way is to inject because the supplement doesn’t absorbed if it passes through a digestive system However, I found a company “Robkeller” claims that their original formula of Glutathione does make a differences and absorbs. Dear Beauty Brains could you please explain more about the Glutathione and clarify about the company please?
The Right Brain responds:
To answer your question we turned to one of our dermatologist friends, Dr Jasmina Jankicevic. Here’s what Dr. J had to say…
Glutathione is a potent antioxidant produced naturally in human body. However, cumulative oxidative stress and toxins can lead to glutathione depletion and furthermore to impaired health. As we age, that cumulative effect makes as even more vulnerable. Studies are indicating that preventing disease and aging depends on, among other things, keeping your glutathione levels optimal.
Oral supplementation with glutathione is not effective because the body digests it. However, the production and recycling of glutathione in the body requires many different nutrients that you can take and some of them (but not all) seem to be included in the supplement (http://www.robkellermd.com/glutathione.html) that you mentioned.
Still, the most effective strategy against disease and aging is to have antioxidant-rich lifestyle: a) healthy, balanced nutrition and moderate supplementation; b) physical activities; c) sufficient sleep; d) psychological stress avoidance, etc.
Hmmm, it looks like Glutathione is important and that this supplement does contain some essential ingredients to help your body manage its supply. It would be interesting to see if the company has done any clinical studies on this supplement.
