A Probiotic that Boosts Glutathione – The Master Antioxidant*
ME-3 Carries Antioxidant Effects Directly into Diverse Body SystemsThe probiotic strain, Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3, has been proven to support healthy glutathione levels. It achieves this effect through three unique pathways:
- ME-3 synthesizes glutathione itself*
- ME-3 extracts available glutathione molecules from its surrounding environment*
- ME-3 recycles “spent” (reduced) glutathione (GSSG) back into its active state (GSH)*
What Exactly is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a tripeptide compound synthesized from the amino acids glutamine, glycine and cysteine. It is considered the "Master Antioxidant" because it is made and used in every cell in the body. Glutathione also helps regenerate other dietary antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.*
This powerful antioxidant is essential for cells and tissues that experience high amounts of wear and tear on a daily basis, such as liver cells, cardiovascular tissues, and immune system cells. By the very nature of their biological tasks, the liver, cardiovascular system, and immune system all require extensive antioxidant support on a daily basis.*
Why You Need to Take a Glutathione Supplement:
All human cells can produce glutathione, but its production can be challenged by cysteine availability in the diet. Glutathione levels also naturally decline with age. So supplementation seems attractive. Unfortunately, as a compound, glutathione is hard to supplement successfully.
Though research conflicts on this point, glutathione appears to degrade in the gut when taken orally. Reg´Activ® products address this challenge by providing a living probiotic strain that produces glutathione from within the body.*
