Decreased levels of glutathione can be brought about by continual stress upon the immune system. As we now know, a lowered immune system can bring about illness and disease. This is a ferocious cycle. While you need glutathione for a productive immune system, a weakened immune system hampers the production of glutathione.
In an earlier blog I wrote about Pulmonary diseases associated with seriously decreased glutathione levels. Today I would like to address another area of interest. Rheumatism or rheumatic disorder is a non-specific term for medical problems affecting the joints and connective tissue. The term "rheumatism" is still used in colloquial speech and historical contexts, but is no longer frequently used in medical or technical literature; there is no longer any recognized disorder simply called "rheumatism." The traditional term covers such a range of different problems that to ascribe symptoms to "rheumatism" is not to say very much. Nevertheless, sources dealing with rheumatism tend to focus on arthritis. However, "non-articular rheumatism", also known as "regional pain syndrome" or "soft tissue rheumatism" can cause significant discomfort and difficulty.
Let’s address a couple of well known rheumatological diseases associated with seriously decreased glutathione levels.
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) - Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body's natural defense system (immune system) attacks its own tissues instead of attacking foreign substances like bacteria and viruses. This causes inflammation. Inflammation causes swelling, pain, and tissue damage throughout the body. If you develop severe lupus, you may have problems with your kidneys, heart, lungs, nervous system, or blood cells. Lupus is the common name for systemic lupus erythematosus, also called SLE.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) - Arthritis is a general term that means inflammation in a joint. Joint inflammation is characterized by redness, warmth, swelling, and pain within the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of chronic arthritis that typically occurs in joints on both sides of the body (such as hands, wrists, or knees). This symmetry helps distinguish rheumatoid arthritis from other types of arthritis. In addition to affecting the joints, rheumatoid arthritis may occasionally affect the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, blood, or nerves.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - MS is an autoimmune disease, whereby the body's own immune system, which normally targets and destroys substances foreign to the body such as bacteria, mistakenly attacks normal tissues.
Scleroderma - Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disorder that can cause tightening and thickening of the skin, thickening of blood vessels, and damage to internal organs. The disease usually affects adults between the ages of 30 and 50 and affects more women than men. There are two types of scleroderma: Localized scleroderma and generalized scleroderma. Localized scleroderma affects mainly the skin, while generalized scleroderma is a systemic disease that may affect many parts of the body.
ME/CFS - Chronic fatigue syndrome, sometimes called CFS, is a condition that makes you feel so tired that you can't do all of your normal, daily activities. There are other symptoms too, but being very tired for at least 6 months is the main one. The disease is not well understood. Most experts now believe that it is a separate illness with its own set of symptoms. But some doctors do not believe this. Doctors don't know what causes CFS. Sometimes it begins after an illness like the flu, but there is no proof of any connection. It's likely that a number of factors or triggers come together to cause CFS.
If you have CFS:
* You may feel exhausted all or much of the time.
* You may have problems sleeping, or you may wake up feeling tired or not rested.
* It may be harder for you to think clearly, to concentrate, and to remember things.
* You may also have headaches, muscle and joint pain, a sore throat, and tender glands in your neck or armpits.
* Your symptoms may flare up after a mental or physical activity that used to be no problem for you. Depression is common with CFS, and it can make your other symptoms worse. Antidepressant medicines can help you feel better.
Fibromyalgia - Fibromyalgia is a non-life-threatening, chronic disorder of the muscles and surrounding soft tissue, including ligaments and tendons. Its main symptoms are muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and tender points at certain parts of the body. Many people describe fibromyalgia as feeling like a persistent flu. Key Characteristics of Fibromyalgia include muscle pain, either throughout the body or only at certain points, is the primary symptom of fibromyalgia. It may range from mild discomfort to pain severe enough to limit work, social activities, and everyday tasks. Pain commonly occurs in the neck, upper back, shoulders, chest, rib cage, lower back, and thighs and may feel like a burning, gnawing, throbbing, stabbing, or aching sensation and may develop gradually. It usually seems worse when a person is trying to relax and is less noticeable during activity.
As you can see from these brief descriptions of these conditions, the medical community has barely pierced the veil covering the causes of these serious conditions and basically focus on treating the symptoms. One thing that each of these conditions have in common is that they the people suffering have seriously decreased levels of intracellular glutathione. It is not my position here that MaxGXL will cure any of these conditions but I can tell you, and the clinical trials prove, that MaxGXL functions both as an antioxidant and an antitoxin and is a major defense system against illness and aging. Our glutathione level actually indicates our state of health and can predict longevity. The importance of glutathione is widely recognized because it has the ability to boost the immune system and fight off the damage of free radicals on the cells.
People need MAX GXL because it helps the body create Glutathione and other antioxidants vital to cell function for the entire body, in a standardized form no other product can duplicate.
1. Glutathione has been clinically proven to affect your body in the following ways, (supported by over 85,000 research articles on www.PubMed.gov , a service of The National Library of Medicine and The National Institute of Health):
a. Increases Energy
b. Increases deep REM Sleep
c. Decreases Inflammation – the cause of most pain and problems
d. Detoxifies the body of Heavy Metals & all known free radicals
e. Glutathione is the Master of all antioxidants
f. Stops every known free radical at a molecule ratio of 1 to 100,000+over 100,000 molecules neutralized by one GSH molecule other antioxidants ratios are less than 1 to 10
g. Improves Heart and Lung function
h. Detoxifies and improves Liver and Kidney function
i. Strengthens the Immune System
j. Slows down the Aging process
k. Permits increased Exercise and faster recovery from strenuous workouts
l. Improves Concentration and mental clarity
