Hello,

Can someone list the different ways one can raise Glutathione level in a human body?

Here is an overview of factors that can raise Glutathione:

N-Acetyl-Cysteine: Commonly also referred to as NAC. This is a potent glutathione precursor that is available as a drug with and without a prescription.


Oral Glutathione: There are a number of foods that have been found to be high in glutathione, including fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats. You can also buy it in pill or powder form from nutritional companies. Why not just eat it, after all?

The problem with this approach is that the body breaks it down, and most of it is eliminated. So as a result, this will have no effect on raising glutathione.




Cysteine or L-Cysteine: This is commonly referred to as free cysteine. It is considered a non-essential amino acid , which means it can be made by the human body. It can be found in foods like meats, dairy products, and certain foods.


Methionine or L- Methionine: Methionine is an essential amino acid that may also be used by the body to make cysteine if enough of it is available. Together, cysteine and methionine make up the two sulfur containing amino acids. Its derivative, SAM, is discussed above.


Melatonin: This is a hormone that naturally occurs in the brain. It is made by the pineal gland. It is a derivative of the amino acid L-tryptophan and the neurotransmitter serotonin.


Glutamine: Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acids found in the body. It is useful in raising glutathione. One of the few amino acids that crosses the blood-brain barrier, it is normally plentiful in the diet today.



Lipoic Acid: This is also commonly referred to as Alpha-Lipoic Acid. The roles of this substance are as an antioxidant, neutralizer of toxins and heavy metals, and recycler of other antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It occurs naturally in the body, and is also available on the shelves of health food stores. it can also be found in small amounts in foods like spinach and broccoli.


Silymarin: Silymarin is the substance extracted from the milk thistle plant. As such, at times, these terms are used interchangeably.



Glutathione Injections: Typically administered by injection, or intravenously (IV), this is very effective in how to raise glutathione blood plasma concentrations temporarily, but does not raise it in the lymphocytes where you need it to build up your immune system.


Undenatured Whey Protein: Also called bioactive whey protein. Undenatured whey protein is a globular protein isolated from whey. The most common form of whey available comes from cow’s milk.


Selenium: A trace element or micronutrient that is primarily an antioxidant. There are a number of medical studies showing selenium's effects on many diseases states, and most agree the main way this works is by elevating glutathione peroxidase, an important enzyme of glutathione. So selenium can be helpful in how to raise glutathione. Selenium is found in selenium-rich soil, so much depends on the source of the food.


Vitamin B1, B2: These are water soluble vitamins that help to maintain glutathione and its related enzymes in their active forms.


Folic Acid: Also known as folate, helps with making DNA and transmission of nervous signals. It has also been shown to help with cardiovascular disease. Children and adults alike need folic acid to prevent anemia or iron deficiency.


Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, this is probably the best known water soluble vitamin. Most living organisms can make their own Vitamin C, but humans cannot, so it must be supplemented.
Vitamin C has been the subject of medical studies regarding it's role as an antioxidant for many years now. Vitamin C has a key role in glutathione metabolism. It is involved in the glutathione enzyme system which keeps Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and other antioxidants in their reduced state.

Magnesium deficiency can lead to the impairment of an important glutathione enzyme needed for glutathione production.


Vanadium is a trace element that depends on glutathione to remain in a reduced state to increase it's bioavailabiity. In high doses, Vanadium is toxic and may have an adverse effect on glutathione production.


Zinc deficiency also reduces glutathione concentration, especially in red blood cells. Zinc also is toxic in higher levels, and may also reduce glutathione if it is over-consumed.


Following foods:

Avocado

Asparagus

Brocoli

Garlic

Raw Eggs

Spinach

Tomatoes

Curcumin

Unprocessed meats
