You guys know that I am a huge supplement fan. I always try to be aware of things I can take to feel, or look better.
Right now I have a really good supplement stack going. I’m taking a probiotic I love, a solid multi that has Vitamin D and B12, and a few herbs here and there when I need. There’s nothing better than knowing that you’re covering all your health bases.
(Regardless of your diet, you should feel like you’re getting it all in! #canilive?)
If I can take two seconds of my life to swallow a pill, and feel better, do better by my body…then I’M IN.
I’ve tried and taken it all.
So when Kyowa Hakko reached out to me on trying their Setria® Glutathione I was PUMPED because I have been hearing about Glutathione lately in L.A. It’s been a topic of conversation in workout classes and by chatting with other wellness babes who are in the know.
Glutathione (although the word may be hard to pronounce) is naturally occurring in your body. Yes, we all have it! It’s a powerhouse antioxidant that, is found to be low even in healthy people.
(Major key for me here, so much that I need to repeat it: It’s naturally occurring in your body so, it’s nothing weird or out of the norm if you take it).
You can ALSO find foods that are rich in Glutathione, such as avocados, tomatoes, grapefruit, garlic, pears, spinach…all of the good stuff like that. The usual suspects for healthy living!
BUT! What’s causing the lower levels of this master antioxidant?, Poor diet, chronic stress, environmental toxins UV light and even aging are just a few of the things that can decrease our bodies ability to produce it.
Sorry y’all but most likely if you’re a living breathing human you could have low levels..
I can safely say that those things are happening in most of our lives (stress, toxins, … Dr. Axe says,
“Glutathione (GSH) is a peptide consisting of three key amino acids that plays several vital roles in the body. Longevity researchers believe that it is so pivotal to our health that the level of GSH in our cells is becoming a predictor of how long we will live.
Glutathione supports the function of the liver kidney, GI tract and intestine-the body’s major detoxification pathways by:
· Eliminating toxins and ingested chemicals that the body has already absorbed.
· Intercepting and neutralizing toxins in the GI tract before they can be absorbed.
Glutathione helps fortify the immune systems in two way:
· Plays a central role in the proper function of white blood cells
· Supports the natural killer ability of some immune cells
Setria® Glutathione may:
· Support healthy aging and overall health
· Support immune health
· Support liver health by eliminating harmful toxins in the body
All of these things just speak to me. It’s like a list of things I like to do all in one place.
My thing is just, why not be safe, get the vitamin, take it daily and call it a day.
I’ve been taking it for the past three weeks, and having it in the mix has been really nice. I like knowing that my immune function is in tip-top shape, that I’m always detoxifying, and that I’m getting a dose of a great antioxidant.
So, yes, you can get it through food (using the list above) but if you want to make it easy, there are a number of glutathione supplements out there.
The one I am taking is NOW foods, but there are other quality ones you can pick up on Amazon (for under $25). Shop it now here: NOW Foods Glutathione
So good right? I’m excited to share my new secret weapon with ya!
