Hashimoto’s and Glutathione

Hashimoto's and Glutathione

Among the myriad elements involved in managing Hashimoto’s disease, the antioxidant glutathione stands out as a key player. To understand the full context of its role, we delve deeper into the complex universe of Hashimoto’s treatment. Glutathione, naturally produced in our liver and cells, is a significant antioxidant that shields our cells from oxidative stress.

Everyday activities such as overworking, excessive drinking, smoking, and even lack of sleep create reactive oxygen species, contributing to oxidative stress and potential cell damage. Glutathione steps in here, mitigating the destructive effects these stressors impose on our cells and mitochondria.

Not only does glutathione act as a buffer against oxidative stress, but it is also renowned as a detoxifier due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Glutathione’s role is pivotal in liver detoxification, transforming pollutants from our daily products, such as lotions and shampoos, into water-soluble ions that can be expelled from the body.

Moreover, glutathione operates as a chelator, binding to heavy metals and neutralizing toxins that contribute to illness. These attributes of glutathione are particularly crucial for Hashimoto’s patients, given the role of oxidative stress and toxins as triggers and perpetuators of autoimmunity.

Perhaps one of glutathione’s most significant contributions to managing Hashimoto’s lies in its capacity to fuel and bolster the T regulatory system of the immune system. This system is responsible for indicating when the immune system should cease its attack on a pathogen. When a viral attack – a common trigger for Hashimoto’s – occurs, the immune response must eventually stop. It’s the T regulatory system, fueled by glutathione, that tells the immune system “enough is enough.”

As Hashimoto’s patients frequently exhibit low levels of glutathione, supplementing this antioxidant can be beneficial. The triggers of autoimmune response, including food sensitivities or allergies, excessive inflammation, and stress, drain glutathione levels, leaving the immune system weakened. In this scenario, glutathione supplementation can fortify the immune system and mitigate inflammatory responses.

Beyond these key roles, glutathione has other benefits, including repairing the blood-brain barrier. Recognized as the most potent antioxidant known to research, glutathione’s inclusion in a Hashimoto’s treatment protocol is almost indispensable.

  1. I find your information to be very helpful. Thank you!

  2. Great info! What’s the best way to get glutathione into the body?

  3. We use a pill or liquid format with our patients. We have also had some patients who were able to get injections from their MD which seemed to work very well.

  4. I have Hashi’s (I am guessing caused by Herpes Virus – I had Shingles). I take L-Lysine for Shingles prevention (1,000 mg day) and I only had the Shingles once. I Love your videos. I am watching as many as I can and they have been very helpful. I now take Selenium (600 mcg), Myo-inositol (2,000 mg), and will get some Glutamine. I am Keto (low carb) and have been for 2 years. I don’t eat Gluten and try to not eat sugar very often. I eat cruciferous vegs once a week and take a Broc. Sprout supplement for the off days. Dairy (cheddar cheese and frozen yogurt) are hard ones and I’m trying to go w/o, but they will be the first ones to add back in (if I can). I am already feeling much better.

  5. Thank you for the kind words. Glad the videos have been of help!

    The glutathione we use with the majority of our patients is this one https://powerhealth.wellproz.com/patient/product/49951

    Good luck with the food reductions. I know it can be hard, but the results are worth it!

  6. I ordered Glutathione and then watched the YouTube Video of Dr. Eric Berg Glutathione and he said that taking synthetic Glutathione causes Cancer! Watch his video and it explains why. He suggests Cruciferous Vegetable and Cruciferous Vegetable capsules and Milk Thistle. I’m not going to risk taking Glutathione capsules. I purchased on Amazon and can’t get a refund. It is the Fresh All Natural Glutathione non-GMO, Soy Free, reduced form 500mg.
