How at risk are you for getting an age-related disease? Well … are you aging? Then you’re at risk – we all are.
But the excellent news is that you can take action and reduce your risk significantly. By availing yourself of the million-dollar research and acting upon that information, you can age beautifully, and with a lot of your vitality intact.
Aging is normal; disease is not.
Hurray for the Information Age! Congratulations on taking back some of the responsibility for your own health choices by doing the research to make informed decisions – it’s a big step and a really important one.
The research, scientific studies and articles in medical journals are all available to us now that we have the internet at our disposal.
You can read the results of these studies today. Many of the articles are written in plain (not super academic) language. Why? Because thousands of doctors, surgeons, researchers and scientists want the general public to understand the results of their findings. Yes!
More and more, the research is pointing to oxidative stress (or free radical damage) as one of the leading causes of disease. Our bodies have to deal with more pollution, toxins, chemicals and carcinogens in our air, food and water than ever before. This leads invariably to the mass production of free radicals in our bodies. Consequently, more people, worldwide, are sicker than ever.
On this page we are going to talk about prevention of disease, and some of the steps that you can take to maintain your health and slow the aging process. At the bottom of this page are links to information about specific age-related diseases and illnesses.
Prevention – Your Key to Healthy Longevity
Prevention from disease is dependent on Glutathione (GSH). Your body’s health and your life are dependent on this small though essential protein.
Glutathione prevents your body’s cells from disintegrating due to oxidation. If the body is unable to produce enough of this protein, your liver is unable to remove the bacteria, viruses and toxins that leave you very susceptible to disease.
Your glutathione levels are vital to the prevention of disease.
Every cell in your body must produce its own supply of glutathione, and in order to do that, your body must have all the necessary building blocks.

Glutathione (GSH) – Your Body’s Most Powerful Protector
Glutathione is in very high demand in our bodies because it is consumed very quickly when we experience pressure of any sort. Many of the causes of glutathione depletion are shown in the figure below.
The role of glutathione in the body is threefold. It’s called AID.
- Immune System
Glutathione drives these three critical processes. This is why glutathione is not only essential to the prevention of disease but also crucial for reversing it.
It’s time to start thinking about our bodies on a cellular level. And to start supporting our bodies cell by cell.
Our bodies manufacture their own natural antioxidants, of which glutathione is the most important.
THE MASTER ANTIOXIDANT
Researchers have explored the value of antioxidants, over many years, and have found them to be crucial to your good health and to the prevention and reversal of disease.
Disease occurs due to oxidative attacks by free radicals. All sorts of illnesses have been brought about by free radical damage, including heart disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, aging, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and many cancers.
||See how this apple has already started to oxidize? It’s dying cell by cell, and will continue to decay unless something is done to prevent further oxidation. |
We have the same ‘oxidative stress’ problems with our own bodies and this is why supplementing with antioxidants, especially the building blocks for glutathione, is so essential.
Some well-recognized antioxidants that are widely used to destroy free radicals are vitamins C, E and selenium. These do not occur naturally in the body but have to be supplied through a balanced diet.
But our bodies do manufacture their own antioxidants, and the chief among these is glutathione. All other antioxidants must have the presence of glutathione to function optimally, hence the term “master antioxidant”.
FEEDING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The function of your immune system is to identify and then attack germs, bacteria, viruses and other invader cells.
A high level of glutathione in the body can prevent these foreign cells that cause illness and disease from getting a foothold in your body. Glutathione also regulates your immune system’s response, thus greeting those invaders with a strong defense.
Dr. Gustavo Bounous, a leading glutathione expert, says, “The limiting factor in the proper activity of our lymphocytes (white blood cells) is the availability of glutathione.”
Healthy immune cells depend on the availability of glutathione as “food” for the immune system and this aids in the prevention of disease.
Unavoidable in our modern world is the ingestion and inhalation of all sorts of toxins, both natural and synthetic. The body is capable of protecting itself by eliminating these toxins when it has the nourishment it needs to maintain good health.
The problem with our modern environment is that our system is forced to contend with increasing pollution levels every day. This decreases more and more rapidly our supply of glutathione in the body.
The liver is the main organ of detoxification as well as having the largest source of glutathione. So it stands to reason that low levels of glutathione make for poor liver function.
This in turn allows more and more toxins to enter the body, thus creating extensive damage to each individual cell and all of the organs.
Low levels of glutathione make the body's job of preventing disease much, much harder.
Glutathione-promoting drugs are used routinely by doctors to detoxify certain types of drug overdose. So you can see how imperative glutathione is to detoxification.
You can take action against disease! And you can start right now.
