Glutathione and The Consumption of Raw Foods (and Acai berries)
Does 'freeze dried' Acai Berry have sufficient amounts of Glutathione in it?
Can a sufficient amount of Glutathione be taken into the body by adhering to a balanced raw food diet?Answer:
Acai berries do not contain glutathione (GSH), however, they are high in Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx)
In fact, most other fruits and vegetables
contain Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx).
However, most fruits and vegetables do help your body to make more Glutathione (GSH)! But the increase in our bodies GSH levels based on only the the food we eat is a difference of about only 40%...and that is in the best case scenarios.
In an ideal world where our food sources are always grown through beneficial farming methods with natural fertilizers and have the amounts of nutrients they contained even just 50 years ago we could get by and get our nutrients solely from our food.
However, In today's modern world, I do not believe we truly have that luxury anymore. Not only do we have nutrient depleted food sources but we are under almost constant bombardment of toxins (pesticides, chemicals, radiation, EMF, chemtrails, etc).
I go into that more in detail here: Foods High In Glutathione
