Fibromyalgia (FM) and Glutathione
FIBRO- fibrous tissues MYALGIA-Pain in a muscle or group of muscles
FM, is also known as, "arthritis of the muscles".
The three main symptoms of FM are muscle pain, joint stiffness, and fatigue. Other symptoms may include difficulty sleeping, insomnia, restless sleep, poor memory, difficulty swallowing, tension headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, bladder abnormalities, abdominal pain, tingling or numbness in arms and/or legs, and cognitive dysfunction.
Sufferers of FM tend to also have mood and/or anxiety disorders. The fact that they suffer from chronic pain that tends to come and go, rotating throughout the body while, at the same time, having a lower than normal threshold for perceiving and tolerating pain, makes everyday life quite difficult for people with FM.
The constant pain coupled with lack of sleep leads to more pain, anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue.
Since there are no specific laboratory tests for diagnosis of fibromyalgia and the symptoms, although uncomfortable, tend to be generalized and non-specific, it can often be misdiagnosed. Proper diagnosis is further complicated by other co-existing conditions the person may have, such as, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease, or systemic lupus erythematosus.
Relief from FM with Glutathione:
Clearly, with all of the above, and as studies prove (see sources below), people with fibromyalgia have highly depleted levels of glutathione.
Studies also show that the correlation between glutathione level and morning stiffness was found to be significant.(1)
In fact, studies recommend supplementation of glutathione for treatment in fibromyalgia.(2)
Raising your glutathione levels, by taking glutathione precursors, such as are found in MaxGXL (and MaxOne), greatly improves the health and well being of people suffering with fibromyalgia through endless ways, such as:
-Glutathione SIGNIFICANTLY reduces pain in the muscles and throughout the body. (One way it does this is by helping muscles maintain a normal aerobic metabolism, which is lacking in FM sufferers)
-Glutathione, the master antioxidant, is the primary protector of the cell, including, the mitochondrial function (energy metabolism) of the cells. It protects the cells by neutralizing free radicals and reversing the damage the free radicals have done. This is vitally important for people with fibromyalgia as their cells are in a battle where the free radicals are winning (oxidative stress).(3)
-Glutathione greatly enhances the body's detoxification system and strengthens the immune system which both address the treatment-resistant aspects of FM.
-The glutathione helps the estrogen in the liver to breakdown completely, preventing the formation of fibroids.
-High glutathione levels lead to better, deep sleep, DRAMATICALLY increased joint flexibility, lessened depression, and reduction of inflammation!
-Glutathione fights fatigue and INTENSELY increases calm, stable, and lasting energy.
