How This Molecule Prevents Aging And Disease

Episode 593 20m


Glutathione is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease—yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to preventing aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and more, and it is necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease. The good news is your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete your glutathione levels.

In today’s episode of a new series called Health Bites, I discuss what glutathione is, why it’s important, and tips to help you optimize your glutathione levels, improve your detoxification system, and help protect yourself from chronic illness.
