Glutathione - the most important and effective endogenous antioxidant - needs no introduction. It is quite simply the body's first line of defence against oxidative stress and a number of xenobiotics (exogenous toxins such as benzenes, heavy metals and pesticides) which are constantly attacking our cells and enzymes.
With the introduction of Perlingual Glutathione, SuperSmart is offering a particularly important, innovative and world-first supplement - for the first time, it is now possible to restore the central element of the body's antioxidant defence system to optimal levels, in a safe and affordable manner.
The accumulation of oxidative damage is the most widely accepted biochemical mechanism involved in ageing and in the deterioration in physiological function associated with it. There is a direct correlation between ageing and decreased intracellular concentrations of glutathione, as well as a strong correlation between increases in these concentrations and improved survival rates. Scientists are now convinced that optimal levels of glutathione are essential for supporting the immune system, protecting and detoxifying the liver, minimising the risk of chronic disease and promoting longevity. Unfortunately, it is difficult and expensive to increase blood levels of glutathione orally. The human intestine contains considerable amounts of an enzyme, gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase, which degrades glutathione as soon as it is ingested.
To date, the only way round this has been to ingest large quantities of glutathione, preferably in combination with other antioxidants which - as much as possible - help maintain it in its reduced state. In this way, at least some glutathione reaches target cells (see our product Reduced Glutathione 500 mg), but it's a somewhat costly (glutathione is one of the most expensive nutrients) and arbitrary approach. However, human studies have shown that glutathione absorption is significantly increased when it is placed in the mouth, between the cheek and the tongue. In fact, an oral dose of glutathione taken three times a day will restore normal blood and cell levels within a few hours. Perlingual and oral absorption has therefore increased benefits, as is the fastest, most effective and economic method of administration available.
To increase levels of glutathione in the body, two precursors of this antioxidant are also available to buy from the SuperSmart catalogue: N-Acetyl-Cysteine and L-Glutamine. A number of studies have shown that depletion in glutathione may also be reduced by the action of the potent antioxidant R-alpha-lipoic acid. This is often combined in anti-ageing medicine with (DMAE), an acetylcholine precursor known for its neuroprotective effects.
