When is Sublingual Glutathione Support Helpful? By slowly dissolving under the tongue and absorbing into the bloodstream where it is carried to the cells to act as a powerful antioxidant, detoxifier, energy booster, and support for aging and the immune system, amongst many other benefits.
Clinical Applications Research: Glutathione, sometimes described as the body’s “most powerful protector”, is now available in a highly absorbable sublingual lozenge that bypasses the digestive system and delivers this potent nutrient straight into the bloodstream. Since glutathione is broken down by enzymes in the digestive system, it is usually recommended to take oral N-acetyl cysteine as a building block to overcome that roadblock, however this new lozenge overcomes that roadblock easily by slowly dissolving under the tongue and absorbing into the bloodstream where it is carried to the cells to act as a powerful antioxidant, detoxifier, energy booster, and support for aging and the immune system, amongst many other benefits. Additionally, glutathione is the most active and powerful when it is in its non-oxidized, reduced form. Complete Sublingual Glutathione supplies that reduced form to the body.

Glutathione is present in many cells; however, it is utilized mainly in the liver. It functions as the most important binder of toxins that the body possesses. When toxic substances enter Phase II of liver detoxification, they have to be “conjugated” or hooked onto something that will aid elimination. The main conjugator for these toxins is a nutrient, namely glutathione.

Complete Sublingual Glutathione is good support for: Energy, detox, heavy metal removal, sleep, trauma, digestion, kidney, eyes, lungs, skin, oxidative stress, cell injury, the brain, glucose homeostasis, etc. etc. and overall health.

Glutathione raises ATP levels and ATP is the currency our body needs for various biochemical reactions. Increasing ATP increases our body’s ability to heal itself. Also, oxidative stress, or free radical damage, is responsible for a whole host of health dysfunctions. Glutathione destroys free radicals and prevents oxidative cell injury.

Along with providing this essential health nutrient, the sublingual lozenge also provides the synergistic factors that enhance the efficacy, absorption, and utilization of the glutathione. These synergistic factors are: N Acetyl Cysteine, Seleno-methionine, and Acerola.

NAC: Cysteine is the most important amino acid building block used in the production of glutathione in the cell. The other two amino acids that contribute to the production of glutathione occur with abundance in the body. For that reason, the presence of cysteine in the cell is known as the “rate-limiting” step because glutathione can’t be manufactured in the cell without it. The N-acetyl form of cysteine (NAC) is a safe, effective way to get cysteine into the cell so that glutathione production can occur. NAC supplementation is an ideal way to bypass the digestive roadblock to successful cellular glutathione (GSH) production by getting inside the cells as a precursor. Once NAC is inside the cell, it combines with the other two amino acids, glutathione increases and is then available for the many reactions for which glutathione is needed. NAC supports the glutathione making ability of the body and keep stores of this versatile nutrient high. For this reason, NAC makes an excellent, synergistic addition to the sublingual lozenge.

NAC and the liver/detox: As mentioned, glutathione is essential for eliminating toxins from the body and depletion of glutathione can be life threatening if the toxic load surpasses the body’s reserve of glutathione to deal with the situation. Hospitals typically administer N-acetyl cysteine to patients with depleted glutathione levels, as an efficient method to bring levels of glutathione back to normal (Amathieu R, et al., 2013; Elshazly SM 2014). NAC is an excellent heavy metal chelator with special affinity for mercury and arsenic.

NAC as an antioxidant: NAC is a potent antioxidant even before it is used as a building block for glutathione. In a model of rats prone to cell injury in the liver, those given N-acetyl cysteine showed a decrease in congestion, polymorphonuclear leukocytes, mononuclear leukocytes, vacuolar degeneration of hepatocytes, and hepatocellular necrosis. Researchers hypothesized that the antioxidant properties of N-acetyl cysteine were responsible for the favorable effect on liver health (Sahin S&Alatas O. 2013).

Selenomethionine: Seleno-methionine is another synergistic nutrient in the Sub-Glutathione lozenge. Selenium is combined with a naturally occurring amino acid to provide a highly absorbable form of selenium .The selenium is a necessary co-factor for the compounded selenium glutathione peroxidase enzyme (SeGSHPx), an enzyme whose main biological role is to initiate the glutathione chemical reaction and protect the organism from oxidative damage. The integrity of the cellular and subcellular membranes depends heavily on SeGSH-Px. The sole reason that selenium is considered an essential mineral is for this reason; without it we would not have the antioxidant enzyme SeGSH-Px. Selenium also acts as an antioxidant even before it is incorporated into SeGSH-Px.

Acerola: Aside from adding a pleasant taste, acerola is high in vitamin C content. Vitamin C serves to preserve glutathione, recycling it from an oxidized state back to a usable, reduced state. Acerola is very synergistic in this lozenge, because the lozenge not only provides glutathione; it provides vitamin C to recycle the glutathione back to the reduced active form after it gets oxidized.
