11 Mar The 6 top THINGS depleting your body of Glutathione
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that plays a critical role in protecting the body against oxidative stress and promoting overall health. It also helps detoxify chemicals, including some that your body creates naturally, as well as pollutants and drugs. There are several factors that can deplete the body’s stores of glutathione, including:
- Aging: As we age, our body’s natural production of glutathione declines, which can result in lower levels of this important antioxidant
- Poor diet: A diet that is high in processed foods, refined sugars, and unhealthy fats can deplete the body of glutathione. Conversely, a diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein can help boost glutathione levels.
- Environmental toxins: air pollution, cigarette smoke, and pesticides, herbicides can deplete the body’s stores of glutathione.
- Chronic stress: Prolonged stress can also deplete glutathione levels in the body.
- Illness and disease: Certain illnesses and diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, and liver disease, can deplete the body’s stores of glutathione.
- Drugs: Acetaminophen (paracetamol), Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Chemotherapy drugs, Antibiotics, and Alcohol
It is important to maintain adequate levels of glutathione in the body to protect against oxidative stress and promote overall health. Consult with your healthcare provider to determine if glutathione supplementation may be appropriate for you.
