A: If you Google Glutathione, you will find that 80% of the products being offered for sale are simply pure Glutathione. This is troubling because if you simply ingest pure Glutathione it will be broken down into its component parts by the acid in your stomach, and simply stated, will never get into your body in a form that can be used. It has often been stated that the most expensive nutritional supplement you will ever purchase is the one that doesn't work. Our Original Glutathione Formula™ is the result of over three years of exhaustive experimentation, all culminating in the creation of a patent pending blend of the appropriate ingredients in proportionally correct amounts, enabling it to:
1) Utilize the digestive system as a tool, not a hurdle.
2) Be preferentially absorbed (because not everything you put into your mouth gets absorbed into your body).
3) Have the ability to pass through two critical membranes - one at the entrance to the cell, and a second at the entrance to that furnace inside each cell called the mitochondria.
4) Have the ability to recycle the spent Glutathione through the liver after it has been utilized to eliminate the oxidants that are the byproduct of ATP production within the mitochondria.
A: In the first 10 minutes of aerobic exercise you burn as much as 40% of the available Glutathione in your muscle tissue. As we exercise, the mitochondria in our cells are working at an accelerated pace to create enough ATP (energy) to supply the muscles we are using. This accelerated increase in ATP production causes a corresponding increase in the production of oxidants, the byproduct of ATP production. If there is not enough Glutathione in your body to facilitate the continued elimination of these elevated oxidant levels, the capacity of your mitochondria to continue to produce ATP at this increased level can become significantly impaired.Muscle soreness can also occur when you exercise in the absence of a sufficient level of available Glutathione in your body. As a result of this Glutathione deficit, your mitochondria may become oxygen starved resulting in Anaerobic Glycolysis, when the mitochondria burn sugar without oxygen to create energy. This causes the production and accumulation of lactic acid, which is responsible for the muscle pain we sometimes experience after a strenuous workout. So by increasing the Glutathione in your body, you decrease accumulated lactic acid, and by doing that, you can work out more frequently because your muscles recover more quickly. The more efficiently each cell in your body operates, the more ATP it can produce, the more ATP your cells produce, the more energy you will have available. If you ensure that your body is amply supplied with Glutathione your cells will be able to more effectively and efficiently remove those oxidants.
