Glutathione – What Is The Safest And Most Effective Way To Raise And Sustain My Levels?

Article by Laura McCallum

Note: This is a series of 7 articles about an important protein in each of your cells called glutathione. To learn more about what glutathione is, please check out my profile and previous articles.

What is the safest and most effective way to raise and sustain my glutathione levels? By now, you know the answer is Immunocal. What basis do I have for saying that? Basically, in a nutshell, research. Allow me to explain. First we will discuss what Immunocal is, and who cannot take it. You can learn more, along with published research, on my website at the bottom of this article.

Immunocal does one thing. It raises and sustains your intracellular glutathione levels. Immunocal is an undenatured whey protein, which means that it is processed from raw cow’s milk which is rich in bonded cysteine, or cystine, a very effective way of delivering cysteine to the cells. It is lactose, casein, and fat free, and can be safely be consumed by everyone except those undergoing immunosuppressive therapy, or have a known allergy to milk proteins. This is different than lactose intolerance, and can be safely consumed by lactose intolerant individuals.

All whey proteins that you can buy in the store are denatured, which means they are not bioactive. If you can buy it in a tub, and it comes in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, it is great as a dietary source of whey, but has been “killed” in this way and will have no effect on how to raise glutathione levels in your cells. It is not undenatured whey protein, and it is not bioactive, even if the label says it is. It will not help you to raise your glutathione levels.

To have a measurable affect on glutathione levels, the protein must be bioactive or undenatured. What do we know about Immunocal? It is backed by over 30 years of published research. There have been published studies done on this product on your immune system, cancer, cystic fibrosis, hepatitis, and HIV to name a few. You can access this research yourself online by googling “pubmed” and typing in the word “Immunocal.” You will be able to view 11 of the 26 published studies currently done on Immunocal here.

So what does this mean for you? That Immunocal is guaranteed to safely raise and sustain your glutathione levels.

Immunocal is listed in the Prescription Drug Edition of the Physician’s Desk Reference in the United States, and the Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties in Canada. This is your doctors’ Bible and contains all of the drugs that he can prescribe for you, along with all necessary information to make sure this is safe for you to take. In rare cases, Immunocal is covered by Medicare and Medicaid for certain conditions.

So what does this mean for you? That Immunocal is guaranteed to safely raise and sustain your glutathione levels.

Immunocal has 65 International Method of Use Patents in 29 countries. Method of Use Patents are very special, and they differ from formulation patents. They are granted only when proven through research that the product does what it says it does.

So what does this mean for you? That Immunocal is guaranteed to safely raise and sustain your glutathione levels.

Are there any side effects from taking Immunocal? In rare cases, a detoxification rash has occurred in some individuals. This goes away when you stop taking the product, and it occurs because glutathione is doing it’s job of removing toxins from your system. Also, you may get gas, burps, or cramps, if you don’t mix it up with a liquid or food. Since it is a dry powder, you need to reconstitute it before taking it.

We discussed the pharmaceutical drug N-acetyl-cysteine in our last installment of this series. Since they both are proven to work, why do we choose Immunocal? Because it is a medicinal food, and not a drug. That means that you get the same result with Immunocal that you get with N-acetyl-cysteine or MaxGXL, but without the side effects associated with the use of this drug. If I could choose a food or a drug that gave me the same benefit, I would choose the food. Wouldn’t you? Here is a summary of possible side effects from taking N-acetyl-cysteine:

Many unwanted symptoms have been reported, including rash, wheezing, nausea, vomiting, cramps and diarrhea. Because of the sulfur bond, many find the taste and smell of rotten eggs objectionable. Although rare, death has been reported in association with N-acetyl-cysteine. However, it is still the most commonly used way to raise glutathione today in clinical settings.

N-acetyl-cysteine also has a short half life, and so has to be taken several times a day. Immunocal can be taken once a day, unless you are on a very high dosage for serious conditions such as cancer.

There are many more reasons to consider why Immunocal is the safest, most effective way to raise and sustain your glutathione levels. But it all starts with established, credible, published research. I encourage you to do your own research and see why we have come to the conclusion that Immunocal is the best way to raise glutathione available today! There is more information on the Physician’s Desk Reference listing for Immunocal, so feel free to contact us for a copy of the full PDR report on this supplement.
