The Master Antioxidant – Glutathione

The Master Antioxidant – Glutathione

Glutathione is an amazing antioxidant. The best delivery of this is through intravenous therapy, but you can also ingest the antioxidant.
Our bodies use Antioxidants in order to prevent our body from “rusting” or becoming damaged by oxygen.  Oxygen is obviously important for our bodies to live, but interestingly can also be damaging to our bodies.

Glutathione benefits those that are at risk of or who have:

* Macular degeneration
* Challenges with Skin health
* Heart health problems
* Need Nervous system support (against Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s)

Here is a Glutathione boosting shake that you can take in the mornings or after a workout:

  • Dream Whey Protein- 1 scoop
  • 1 cup Almond milk or rice milk (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries or blackberries or peaches
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 ice cubes
  • handful of spinach, kale or chard
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or turmeric
Blend and enjoy outside in the backyard for the last of our summer days.
