The Powerhouse Antioxidant You Need More Of: Glutathione

While you may not have heard about glutathione, you’ve probably heard about antioxidants and how important they are for healthy cells and wellness.

Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants naturally produced in the body, playing a crucial role in protecting cells from oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals. Its importance lies in its ability to neutralize free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can harm cells and contribute to various health issues, including aging, inflammation, and chronic diseases.

One of the key reasons why glutathione is particularly important for women is its interaction with female hormones. Glutathione helps support hormonal balance by aiding in the detoxification of hormones such as estrogen. It helps eliminate excess estrogen from the body, which is beneficial as high levels of estrogen can lead to hormone imbalances, menstrual irregularities, and other health problems.

Glutathione also plays a role in supporting the liver, which is responsible for metabolizing hormones. By enhancing liver function, glutathione indirectly contributes to maintaining healthy hormone levels in women. Listen to the full episode for some natural sources of glutathione and how to incorporate this into your daily routine!
