Liposomal Glutathione

I’ve been taking this for two months now – I’m a firm believer in trying it out for a while before sharing. @designsforhealth has made this “antioxidant formula using liposomal technology for superior absorption and delivery.” Why did I jump at the chance to try this? I immediately thought of the #MTHFR mutation that makes absorption of supplements and detoxifying more difficult. Then my liver damage from parasites. The need to detox while battling #candida. Glutathione is so imperative, and if I’m taking the time and spending the money on it I want to know my body is absorbing and utilizing it to its’ full potential. These past few months have shown much promise as blood test results all show I’m headed in the right direction. All good things when it comes to this supplement. 😍 #detox #liverdamage#parasites #hashimotos#digestivedysfunction #aminoacids#liposomalglutathione #GSH#deaignsforhealth #dnaprotection#thyroidhealth #heavymetaldetoxing#mthfrwarriors

 

To Answer more Questions about it from all of you:

  1.  What is the purpose of Glutathione (GSH) ? -Glutathione is viewed as the bodies master antioxidant and it is most abundant in our liver making it  critical in the bodies detoxification process. The depletion of Glutathione can be correlated with lower immune function and increased vulnerability to infection. Glutathione plays a major role in controlling the types of bonds formed between proteins and other substances in your body.
  2. What does it do for the body?- Some of the physiological functions of Glutathione are that is it responsible for redox and nucleophilic reactions that seen in the detoxification process. GSH has also been associated with assisting in combating cancer, atherosclerosis, as well as the aging process through preventing chronic low dose exposure to POPs to global hypomethylation.  GSH plays a role in cell-cycle and stress oxidation regulation, as well as contributes to the mitochondrial function within our cells.
  3. How does it relate to Glutamine? Glutamine is an amino acid that is naturally created within the body, while Glutathione is made of three different amino acids within the body. Glutathione is correlated with detoxification and anti aging while Glutamine is correlated with immune system, brain function and digestive system.
  4. Why is this all important for auto immune diseases/disorders? Glutathione is a powerful defense against toxins and inflammation. It protects the body’s cells from damage, it helps detoxify the body, and supports optimal immune function.When Glutathione levels drop too low, this makes you more susceptible to autoimmune disease, multiple food sensitivities, chemical and heavy metal sensitivities, chronic inflammatory disorders, leaky gut, and other immune-related issues. Chronic stress, environmental toxins, diets low in nutrients but high in inflammatory triggers, sleep deprivation, smoking, sugar, excess alcohol, and other stressors slowly deplete glutathione levels. Glutathione levels also decrease naturally as a result of aging.

What does a day of eating look like?

Hi Friends!

I recently had a dear friend ask me what a typical day of food and supplements looks like for me.  So here it is, in all its’ glory!

7am First thing on an empty stomach I drink 2 cups of freshly juiced organic celery.

7:30am Then (and this is a reintroduced item) I have a cup of Bulletproof medium roast coffee that I make with a french press.  I add in 1 teaspoon of local honey, 1 tablespoon of Bulletproof brain octane, 1 teaspoon of glutatamine, and 1 scoop of Bulletproof Collagen.  NOTE – you can add these extras into tea or any warm liquid!

9-9:30am Breakfast is always my Paleo Breakfast Bowl I created – the recipe is on the site.

Supplements – Thyrovanz natural bovine thyroid supplement, (Designs for Health is my preferred supplement) 2 Glutathione pills, 1 selenium, 2 sensitol, 1 Vitamin K2, 1 Vitamin D, 1 Vitamin A, 2 Histaeeze, 1 Digestive Enzyme, 1 Megaspore probiotic (spore based probiotics are amazing – Just Thrive is another option and easily available on line).

1ish is lunch – 1 digestive enzyme.  large serving of salad – organic mixed greens with fresh organic lemon juice, sea salt, garlic salt and a touch of organic olive oil.  Some days I put some olives and hearts of palm on as well.  I choose 4-6 ounces of meat – Grilled organic, free range chicken, or organic grass fed, grass finished Ground beef, or Wild Salmon.   If I have room I’ll eat 1/2 an organic apple and perhaps a cooked veggie like 1/2 cup of butternut squash with cinnamon.

Water throughout the day with freshly squeezed organic lemon and organic wild blueberries (just a few sprinkled in my 32 ounce cup).

Pre and Post workout – Nothing.  If it’s a SUPER busy day, I’ll have a Designs for Health Paleo Protein IgG shake mixed with 1/2 water, 1/2 coconut milk and some cinnamon.

6 ish Dinner – 1 digestive enzyme, 1 thyrovanz pill- Grilled veggies – like squash, asparagus or artichoke.  4-6 ounces of meat – once a week I treat my family to organic, grassfed & finished beef ribs or brisket – see recipes on the site.  If I need something sweet, 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato with cinnamon always does the trick!

1 hour before bed I take a melatonin if I’m in desperate need of a full 8+ hours of deep sleep.  30 minutes before bed I take 2 Bulletproof coconut charcoal pills to help detox my system.

*In a few weeks I’ll be doing an in depth heavy metal and toxin test, at which time the results will let me know if I in fact need to be taking supplements for that.

See our previous post regarding detoxing for more information on foods and supplements!

Regarding the EBV connection, I take a daily dose of Colloidal silver and 2000mg of Vitamin C, along with a dropper of: cats claw,  licorice root, ashwaganda and lemon balm – I’ve not included this as integrated into my daily AIP regiment because it is for EBV, which I believe it part of my AI issue, but that is just my belief based upon how I feel.
