Here is what he had to say about glutathione:
"Glutathione Is Earning Reputation As A Master Antioxidant"
By PETER GOTT, M.D.
Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column every day in my local Arkansas paper. Your recent column talked about the antioxidant vitamins C and E; however, nothing was mentioned about the most powerful one of all - glutathione - that we were born with and decreases with age. Can you discuss this little-talked-about antioxidant?
Dear Reader: Glutathione is reported to be the body's master antioxidant. It is produced in the liver and plays an important role in metabolism. It is composed of cysteine, glutamic acid and glyceine, and is purported to help human cells function normally. It is found naturally in numerous meats, eggs, fruits and vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, avocado and spinach, unprocessed whey protein and milk thistle; however, the absorption rate of glutathione from all food sources in the gastrointestinal tract of humans is apparently low.
It has been used for the treatment of heavy-metal poisoning, to increase the effectiveness of drugs for chemotherapy given for breast cancer, in lowering blood pressure in patients diagnosed with diabetes, for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and a great deal more. Research projects for ALS, cancer, cystic fibrosis, asthma and a number of other conditions are under way to investigate its potential for boosting the immune system, improving longevity, reduce chances for developing cancer, improving mental, heart and lung function, and increasing energy.
While marketed as a nutritional supplement, there is little documentation to support the theory it actually increases levels within cells. In fact, in human studies, oral doses had minimal effect in raising blood levels. Supplemental vitamin C is reported more effective in increasing intracellular glutathione than the [glutathione] supplement is.
Levels within the human body decrease with age, presumably at a rate of 1 percent per year after the age of 20.
I'm not sure that I will rush out for a bottle of glutathione, but never say never.
Well Dr Gott, I am with you there! I will not be one to rush out for a bottle of glutathione either! Like you said, "in human studies, oral doses [of glutathione] had minimal effect in raising [glutathione] blood levels."
In fact, MaxGXL does NOT contain glutathione at all!
MaxGXL is simply a nutritional supplement that contains the building blocks (precursors) of glutathione! Your cells are then provided with ample amounts of the exact nutrients they need to produce more glutathione, thus as studies prove, your intracellular levels of glutathione go up!
Incidentally, ONE of the ingredients of MaxGXL is vitamin C! And as was shared in the Dr Gott Newspaper Column, "Vitamin C is...effective in increasing intracellular glutathione..." Correct! This is just one of the reasons why Dr Keller included Vitamin C in his formula known as MaxGXL!
