Product Description

Sublingual Glutathione – Clinical Glutathione

Active Antioxidant and Liver Detoxifier 

Patented Oral Delivery
Absorption of the active form, into the bloodstream, b
ypassing intestines and liver

300 mg. of Active L-Glutathione (Reduced Form) – GSH – per 2 slow melt tablets

EuroMedica’s Clinical Glutathione is specially formulated as an under the tongue (sublingual) slow-melt tablet. Its Sublinthion patented process enables the active form of glutathione to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

In a human study Clinical Glutathione was found to improve reduced glutathione vs. oxidized ratios in the body by 230%. (See study below.)

Human Study – Sublingual Glutathione Shows Enhanced Delivery of Active Glutathione (see definitions below)

“While intravenous administration of reduced glutathione has been shown to significantly impact this ratio (GSH:GSSG), oral supplementation has been ineffective because the reduced glutathione is either a) broken down to simple amino acids during digestion or b) are oxidized and no longer active when absorbed, or a combination of a and b.

Glutathione precursors provide unpredictable results, as they rely upon the ability of the patient to synthesize reduced glutathione, an ability which decreases with age and certain physical challenges.

We describe here a novel process utilizing reduced glutathione, further stabilized with punicalagins from pomegranate, delivered to the sublingual mucous membrane.

This sublingual administration bypasses both the intestine and the liver, and the glutathione enters the body in its reduced (active) form, significantly improving the ratio of GSH to GSSG, 230% more than reference glutathione, and 65% more than the precursor N-acetylcysteine.”

Active Glutathione is a Master Antioxidant and Detoxifier

Glutathione (see my web page) is the most powerful antioxidant our bodies have. In its active form it protects us from free radicals and the damage they can inflict on our cells and DNA. In addition, it also plays a key role in removing toxins, including heavy metals, from our bodies.

It’s widely accepted that good health depends on minimizing oxidative stress from free radicals and keeping toxins from accumulating in the body.

Unfortunately, as we age, we make less glutathione and stressors like disease and environmental factors further tax our levels.

Other Roles of Glutathione in the Body

“Glutathione is generally agreed to be the most significant endogenous antioxidant, though it plays many metabolic roles beyond arresting oxidative damage.

Glutathione is important to genetic preservation via protective effects on telomeres; preserves DNA integrity; is essential for liver detoxification; recycles oxidized vitamin E;  and regulates the mechanisms essential to homoeostasis, which includes enzymatic activity, protein synthesis, gene expression, and mitochondrial integrity.

The ratio of reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione has been documented as a noted factor in many diseases and chronic health issues.

The ability to create reduced glutathione diminishes with age. At age 40, the loss is approximately 30%, and increases to as much as 50% reduction by age 65.

Other factors, including tobacco smoke, pollution, unbalanced diet, genetic inefficiencies, and use of prescription and/or over the counter drugs (most notably acetaminophen) can further compound this loss.”

Summary of Glutathione-related Terms

GSH = active form of glutathione = reduced = antioxidant = resists oxidative stress

GSSG = inactive form of glutathione = oxidized = not an antioxidant

Ratios of GSH:GSSG = indicator of  oxidative stress

Low GSH:GSSG ratio = indicator of high oxidative stress


Interesting Research on Glutathione and Parkinson’s Disease

Review Article on Glutathione Metabolism and Parkinson’s Disease
“…In this review, we examine the synthesis, metabolism, and functional interactions of glutathione and discuss how these relate to the protection of dopaminergic neurons from oxidative damage and its therapeutic potential in Parkinson disease.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 2 tablets daily. One tablet in a.m. and one in the p.m., or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Tablet should be held in mouth and allowed to dissolve before swallowing for optimal results.

If pregnant or nursing, consult your healthcare practitioner before using.

 

My Personal Experience

The pomegranate has polyphenols that stabilizes the product and gives it a tart taste. It also has a mild vanilla flavor.

You can take 1 tablet a day for general support, away from food. Keep the tablet under the tongue and let it dissolve to get maximum absorption. (The goal is to have it absorbed directly into the blood stream and not into the GI tract which will oxidize the glutathione, providing you with less benefit.)

It takes about 15-20 minutes to dissolve. Wait about 10 minutes before eating or drinking.

This product is a convenient and effective way to replenish the body’s own levels of glutathione required for good health.

FAQs

Q. Why is it called “reduced”?
A. The reduced form is simply the stable, active form required for good health. When it is oxidized in the body, an enzyme called “glutathione reductase” helps return glutathione back into its antioxidant state. The normal functions of the body typically destabilize any antioxidant, but with this master antioxidant, it is important to have a strong ratio of “reduced” — that is active — glutathione (GSH) — to the oxidized glutathione (GSSG).

Q. Why does it require a special formulation?
A. Oral glutathione does not survive oxidation during the digestive process unless it is specially formulated and protected. This special formulation and patented process allows the glutathione to provide optimal benefits without oxidizing. (Oxidizing would actually add to the burden of free radicals in the body.) The patented delivery system used is different from an enteric coating, as stomach acid isn’t the problem in causing oxidation.

Q. Why not just use N-acetylcysteine? Isn’t that a building block?
A. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a building block of the active GSH, and may help increase levels. However the body must be able to do the necessary work to convert it to this active form.
