Glutathione is a protein in each of your cells that acts as AN IDEA: Antioxidant, Immune system optimizer, Detoxifier, Energy Restorer, and has Antiaging properties.
You cannot raise glutathione by eating it, you must take in the building blocks for your cells to make it themselves. The most thoroughly studied ways for how to raise glutathione are with two forms of cysteine – the drug N-acetyl-cysteine and bonded cysteine.
Regarding multiple sclerosis, here is what Dr. Jimmy Gutman, most widely published author on the subject of glutathione has to say in his bestseller, “Glutathione- Your Key to Health”:
“MS is a difficult disease to study because its spontaneous remissions and relapses make it very unpredictable. It is therefore hard to correlate any sort of intervention with changes in a patient’s condition. In order to be statistically significant, prospective trials would have to include hundreds of subjects.
However, certain findings have been demonstrated consistently in multiple sclerosis patients. The breakdown products of oxidative stress are present in large numbers, and the level of free radical formation corresponds to the severity of the MS attack. Furthermore, glutathione activity is clearly impaired in this disease.
Also, individual tissues suffer less free radical damage when antioxidants and glutathione therapy are used. Although not a cure, many authors have suggested that reduced oxidative damage would help MS patients and suggest in particular the helpful role of elevated glutathione levels.”
