Detoxification Is Essential For Your Health. How Does Glutathione Help Me Cleanse Toxins? Part 1Written by admin on December 10th, 2011
Detoxification or detox is defined as the removal of toxins from the body. You learned all about toxins on the previous page. You learned that you need a dual strategy to successfully deal with toxins. You need to prevent them from coming in and you also need to know how to cleanse toxins in the human body that do make it in.
And you also learned that glutathione (GSH) is essential to keep you from being literally poisoned to death. Click here to learn about all of the roles that glutathione has. It’s much more than a detoxifier!
The list of toxins in products today is long. Today we have toxins in your home, toxins in food, cosmetic toxins, everyday toxins, and as a results we end up with toxins in blood.
We have tens of thousands of toxins in our environment today, poisons that were not known just a hundred years ago. These end up as toxins in the human body. Our body has a large order to fill – to successfully help us to remove them as they come in. And with disease on the increase, it is becoming increasingly evident that our bodies need an extra boost to keep up!
Just how does glutathione work in its role of detoxification?
Glutathione was first discovered in 1888 by J.de-Rey-Pailhade, but much was yet to be learned once it was found. It wasn’t until about 30 years ago that it was discovered that one of glutathione’s main roles is to assist with cleansing toxins from your body.
Now that there is growing evidence regarding the role of toxins and disease, and the powerful role that prevention plays, we have access to research that shows us just how glutathione keeps us from becoming full of poisons and toxic substances.
Your liver and kidneys are your main organs of detoxification, and therefore they contain the highest amounts of glutathione. They are primarily responsible for cleansing toxins from your body.
If you didn’t have glutathione in your body right now, you would not be able to read this sentence because you would be dead from all of the poisons in your body. Really!
And it’s not just humans that have this powerful protein at their disposal. Glutathione plays an important life-sustaining role in all vertebrates, and even in insects, plants and microorganisms!
