Ginkgo Biloba and Glutathione

Ginkgo biloba is an herb with powerful antioxidant effects in your brain, retina, and cardiovascular system.

It’s well known for its ability to enhance circulation, and a recent study reported it has a measurable effect on dementia in people with Alzheimer’s disease and people recovering from strokes.

Other studies show it can improve both long- and short-term memory and enhance concentration.

Ginkgo biloba has also been used to treat hearing problems, impotence, and macular degeneration.

Anyone who takes prescription blood-thinning medication or who uses over-the-counter painkillers should consult a health care provider before using ginkgo biloba, because combination may cause internal bleeding.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a protein produced in your liver from the amino acids cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine.

It’s a powerful antioxidant that inhibits the formation of, and protects against cellular damage from, free radicals.

It helps defend your body against damage from cigarette smoking, exposure to radiation, cancer chemotherapy, and toxins like alcohol.

As a detoxifier of heavy metals and drugs, it helps treat blood and liver disorders.

Glutathione protects your cells in several ways.

It neutralizes oxygen molecules before they can harm your cells.

Together with selenium, it forms an enzyme that neutralizes hydrogen peroxide.

It’s also part of another antioxidant enzyme, which is a broad-spectrum liver-detoxifying enzyme.

Glutathione protects not only individual cells but also the tissues of your arteries, brain, heart, immune cells, kidneys, lenses of your eyes, liver, lungs, and skin against oxidant damage.

It plays a role in preventing cancer, especially liver cancer, and may actually target carcinogens, make them water-soluble, and then help escort them from your body.

It may also have an antiaging effect.

The rate at which we age is directly correlated with reduced concentrations of glutathione in cellular fluids; as we grow older, glutathione levels drop, resulting in a decreased ability to deactivate free radicals.

Glutathione can be taken in supplement form.

The making of glutathione by your body can be boosted by taking supplemental DHEA, a hormone; N-acetylcysteine or L-cysteine; and L-methionine.

Studies suggest this may be a better way of raising glutathione levels than taking glutathione alone, but check with your health care professional of you have any hormonal problems.
