Dr. J is in the house with a full podcast on glutathione, what it is, what it does, what happens when you don't have enough of it, what nutrients you need to maximize glutathione, and how you can boost your glutathione levels naturally.

First things first, what is glutathione? It is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamine, and glycine. These are sulfur-rich amino acids which you find mostly in animal products, while you can get some vegetable-derived sulfur amino acids, veggies are low in these specific amino acids.

Some conditions associated with low glutathione are Alzheimer's, cancer, chronic liver disease, cognitive issues, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, hypertension, lupus, immunodeficiency, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, neurodegenerative issues, and more (note: low glutathione is not the root cause of these but is often associated). Dr. J further supports this sharing studies and explaining the mechanisms. We even look at medical studies proving glutathione increases apoptosis (the growing and dying of cells) and the antioxidant capacity, showing glutathione to be a cytoprotective (it protects cells). Dr. J and Dr. Evan Brand go on to discuss which foods are high in glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. They mention whey protein, sulfur-rich foods like bok choy, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale mustard greens, and turnips. High-quality beef, chicken, fish, and eggs are great for intercellular nutrients (which most vegetables don't have much of, so proteins are very important). This podcast is packed with the basics and complexities of glutathione, Dr. J has mentioned it many times in previous podcasts and now we have a better understanding of why he's such a big advocate!
