Ever notice that some people age much faster ? The current scientific understanding about aging is that we "oxidize". Accelerated oxidation speeds up programmed cell death, which determines the longevity of our bodies.

Your oxidation rates are the result of the oxidants in your body from energy metabolism, contaminants, and your status of antioxidation nutrients and enzymes. Pollutants accelerate oxidation, and nutritional antioxidants and enzymes slow it down.

Antioxidants work together and leverage each other. Vitamins B, C and E are well known, but do you know about Glutathione ? There is an established correlation between ones "agedness" and body Glutathione levels. The more "aged" you are, the less Glutathione you have. Not only is Glutathione a powerful antioxidant, it facilitates the detoxification and excretion of many oxidizing pollutants and poisons.

Here is what James F. Balch M.D. and Phyllis A. Balch C.N.C say about Glutathione and aging in their book "Prescription for Nutritional Healing".

"As we age, glutathione levels decline, although it is not known whether this is because we use it more rapidly or produce less of it to begin with. Unfortunately, if not corrected, the lack of glutathione in turn accelerates the aging process."

They go on further to say this about boosting glutathione levels.

"Supplemental glutathione is expensive, and the effectiveness of oral formulas is questionable. To raise glutathione levels, it is better to supply the body with the raw materials it uses to make this compound: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. The N-acetyl form of cysteine (N-acetylcysteine) is considered particularly effective for this purpose."

Resist aging with a complete set of antioxidants and nutrients.

As a nutritional supplement program aimed at supporting your healthy bodys natural resistance to aging, we recommend our Defense & Replenish.

This combination fortifies your diet with essential trace minerals that are not reliably present in mass produced foods. You receive a boost of Glutathione precursors every other day. A daily insurance of the most reliable vitamins and antioxidants, vitamin C, natural vitamin E, and B-vitamins, essential for many metabolic functions.
