Meet Glutathione – The body’s best friend, that you’ve never heard off…

Meet Glutathione – Our oldest and newest best friend
Natural life-giving molecule opens doors to healing

Is this you or someone you know?

You drag yourself through each day with no energy. You have aches and pains in places you didn’t know you had. When you exert yourself it takes eons to recuperate. And to top it off, you seem to get every cold and flu bug that comes through town. Let’s face it. You feel twenty years older than you are.

Hold on. Before you imagine the worst, let me share some information that will shed light on your symptoms. Remember, symptoms are just your body’s alarm bells. The root cause isn’t always obvious.

Did you know that most major heart, joint and muscular conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Neuropathies, Auto-Immune conditions, etc. are the result of uncontrolled cellular inflammation? So what causes it?

Our bodies naturally manufacture a very cool and powerful antioxidant called Glutathione (gloot-a-thigh’-own). It’s produced in our cells and is the resident army against pollution, stress, infection, poor diet and our good friend, aging. Glutathione works day and night detoxing the body, protecting cells against invaders, repairing cells, and fueling a strong metabolism.

Then, as we get older, the army gets smaller: a loss of 10-15% per decade after age twenty. This allows enemies like free radicals to beat up our cells and plunder our reserves, leaving us vulnerable to cancer, heart disease and a whole list of other conditions. The liver becomes so overloaded and damaged that it can no longer keep up with needed detoxification. What’s worse is that many drugs routinely taken for pain and inflammation both over the counter such as NSAIDS and prescription anti-inflammatories, significantly reduce the levels of the glutathione in our cells.

Can’t we send for reinforcements?

In a word, yes. By restoring high levels of naturally powerful Glutathione to our bodies we can effectively rebuild our defenses to

• Risk Improve Heart and Lung Function
• Inhibit Inflammation of Joints
• Increase Mental Clarity and Function
• Detoxify the Body and Improve Liver Function

I know it sounds like a lot to ask of an antioxidant. But Glutathione isn’t just any antioxidant. It is the world’s most powerful one!

How it works:

Glutathione is a combination of three simple amino acids—cysteine, glycine and glutamine. Who cares, right? What’s important is that its properties attract toxins in the body (including metals) and removes them through our waste systems. In the process it also recycles antioxidants and generates more Glutathione molecules to restore appropriate levels for health and well-being.

Leaving low levels of Glutathione untreated increases the risk of Hypertension, Heart Disease, Pre-Diabetes / Diabetes, Chronic Pain, Cancer, Infections and Auto Immune condition like; Fibromyalgia, Neuropathies, and various painful arthritic disorders.

Why haven’t you heard of this before?

Good question. It hasn’t been for lack of trying. There are over 76,000 articles published to date about the relationship between Glutathione deficiency and a host of chronic diseases including autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, arthritis, asthma and kidney and liver ailments, yet modern medicine has basically ignored it as a treatment option in favor of Big Pharma products.

The world has changed. Before electro-magnetic radiation, toxic industrial chemicals, mercury and lead pollution, and over-processed food, our bodies didn’t need more Glutathione than we produced. But in today’s world with thousands of tons of toxins released into the environment annually, and our exposure in today’s consumer environment, your body needs extra protection.

Was that you in the first paragraph?

If so, consider looking into the healing benefits of Glutathione. Its natural and benevolent presence could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Dr Benedetto routinely uses specific supplementation and a very unique process of delivering more to the body in his patient’s treatment plans to help them experience life changing care on a daily basis.
