What? Glutathione? Yes! It Is An Essential Health Aid.
By Joe Kingsley Eyiah, OCT, Brookview Middle School, Toronto-Canada
“Glutathione is a protein which is critical to the body and immune system. It acts as an antioxidant, detoxifier, and immune system enhancer.”-Jimmy Gutman, M. D., F. A. C. E. P.
As a social commentator and a teacher, I love to bring to the fore things and issues of importance (oblivious or obvious) for public discussion and knowledge. My church is serious about the health message, for, ‘a healthy mind resides in a healthy body’. Last quarter’s Sabbath School lesson that my church studied worldwide was on healthful living. It was written by the General Conference Health Ministries Department based on our belief that, “Our bodies are wonderful gifts from loving God who created us in His image and who wants us to enjoy our physical existence, at least as much as possible in this fallen.”
Let me begin with a simple question: How much is your health worth to you? I will answer, EVERYTHING! If you have your health, you have everything. Your health is worth more than $1million a day! Be knowledgeable about your health and take good care of it. Did you know that glutathione; WHAT? Yes, glutathione is an essential aid to your health? This information might be new to many people, including even some medical doctors!
It was red carpet event for Silver Consultants, last June (2010), at the headquarters of Immunotec Inc in Montreal, Quebec where I sat at the feet of Dr. Gutman to learn more about glutathione. I was really overwhelmed by the depth of scientific knowledge I was exposed to as far as that topic was concerned.
What is Glutathione (GSH)?
Glutathione is a protein naturally produced by the human body. “It protects each cell, tissue, and organ from disease, aging, and cancer. It is vital to the body, but it can’t be synthetically produced,” says Dr. Gutman.
Over the years, studies have shown that our bodies produce more than just white blood cells to protect our immune systems. One key ‘soldier’ that our bodies produce to fight off free radicals, germs, and other infiltrators in our bodies is protein, especially a protein called glutathione (GSH).
Glutathione is naturally put in our bodies by the Wonderful Creator-Almighty God. However, our glutathione levels are impaired by aging, poor diet, and toxins in the air and water. We need to increase our glutathione levels to help counter the effects of toxins
we inhale or ingest.
GSH is an immune system booster. It also works to help improve MENTAL FUNCTION, increase ENERGY, improve CONCENTRATION and, permit INCREASED EXERCISE! Hence, GSH=A. I. D. E.
A – Antioxidant: Glutathione is the body’s “Master Antioxidant”
I – Immune System: Glutathione is critical for immune function
D – Detoxification: Glutathione is your cell's key detoxification enzyme
E2– Glutathione contributes to your overall energy at many levels
Unfortunately, we can’t eat glutathione. Glutathione is produced by the body in the cell when the necessary precursors are provided. Immunocal, which delivers cysteine to the cell so that it can produce glutathione is the only natural supplement scientifically proven to help the cell raise the level of glutathione when consumed.
Immunocal contains specific fragile proteins that supply your body with the building blocks needed for the production of glutathione in your cells. These building blocks are called “precursors” and glutathione precursors are relatively rare in our normal diets.
What is Immunocal?
Immunocal is an all-natural non-prescription health product available worldwide. It is a very high quality protein that provides all the amino acids your body needs, and, more critically, it raises the level of glutathione in your body.
The Natural Health Products Directorate of Health Canada has issued an NPN (Natural Product Number) for the specific health claim “Immunocal is a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system.” (NPN-80004370)
This natural product (an undenatured whey protein concentrate), which was discovered by Dr Gustavo Bounous of McGill University in Montreal about 34 years ago, is making a profound impact on our health. It deals specifically with the IMMUNE SYSTEM.
It is knowledgeable to note that, Immunocal;
-is listed in the USA Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) as well as the USA Pharmacists Red Book and in the Canadian Reference for Health Professionals known as Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS)
-helps with our immune system
-provides antioxidant benefit
-acts as a detoxifier
-helps with mental concentration
-helps with athletic performance
-slows the aging process
-promotes over all sense of wellness.
If you have an immune system then you must increase your glutathione level. And to increase your glutathione level to boost your immune system to stay healthy, you must consume immunocal! Everybody has an immune system therefore everybody needs IMMUNOCAL. Stay healthy by raising the levels of GLUTATHIONE in your body to improve your immune system!
