“Glutathione? What is glutathione? And, what does it have to do with Parkinson’s?” you may ask. “If it is such an important substance in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, how come I've never heard of it?!”
Well, not to worry. Most people have not yet heard of Glutathione (pronounced "gloota-thigh-on") which is the general term for Glutathione Sulfhydryl, also abbreviated to GSH. However, that is about to change - big time.
Do you remember, not so long ago, when none of us (not our doctors nor us, the general public) had ever heard of Penicillin? It's hard to imagine. We had no idea how radically our concept of health would change. Neither we, nor our health professionals, could begin to foresee how drastically our ideas about fighting disease would be transformed.
Well, similarly, Glutathione is about to transform our understanding of our bodies and the health challenges we all face. Glutathione is about to become as familiar, life-changing and trustworthy to us as penicillin has.
Glutathione is a substance that your body naturally manufactures, and many diseases and disabilities result from very low levels of it. Until now there has not been a safe, natural and effective way to help the body raise its glutathione levels. And as you are about to learn on the following pages, it is crucial to your health and your very survival. Without it... you would die.
It is very important to understand the science behind glutathione and how it works. To check it out in layman’s terms, click on this link: science
You may not have heard of Glutathione before, but many researchers, scientists and doctors sure have. In the past twenty years the volume of research on Glutathione has grown immensely.
There are currently over 300 published reports per month released around the world – a total fast approaching 100,000! - on Glutathione and its role in aging, immunity, preserving health, and reversing the effects of degenerative disease - including Parkinson’s Disease.
Actually, an amazing list of illnesses has been linked with Glutathione, amongst a very large array of theoretical papers, bench-top lab experiments, epidemiological studies, animal projects and – most importantly – clinical trials on humans.
The list of illnesses linked with Glutathione is long and would be hard to believe, except for the strength and credibility of the research. It has become clear that the role GSH plays in the immune response, detoxification and antioxidation of the human body is crucial.
In fact… the scientists now know that without it, your bodily processes would fail altogether.
With that kind of attention, it is only a matter of time before Glutathione (GSH) becomes a household word.
Take a look at what a few professionals have to say about Glutathione:
“No other antioxidant is as important to overall health as glutathione. It is the regenerator of immune cells and the most valuable detoxifying agent in the body. Low levels are associated with early aging and even death.” The Immune System Cure, Lorna R. Vanderhaeghe & Patrick J.D. Bouic, Ph.D.
“Low glutathione levels have been associated with neuro-degenerative diseases such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis), ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s disease, among others.” The Lancet 344: 796-798, 1994
“Your life depends on glutathione. Without it your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, you body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins.” “Glutathione: Essential Health AID- Antioxidant, Immune Booster, Detoxifer, Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP
“Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties – if you raise the glutathione level you can stop the replication of most any, at least intracellular, pathogen…but glutathione deficiency produces a pro-viral effect.” Dr. Paul Cheney, transcribed from a workshop presentation of the Clinical Management of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
“Glutathione levels also diminish as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency, including Parkinson’s disease.” Glutathione: Essential Health AID, Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP

“Glutathione plays a role in eliminating many carcinogens and also maintains an optimized immune function, providing stronger anti-tumor defenses.” Cancer Letters 57: 91-94, 1991
“Raised glutathione levels fight the oxidation of circulating fats in the bloodstream, including cholesterol, retarding the process of plaque formation in the arteries – the underlying cause for most heart disease and stroke.” Nutrition Reviews 54: 1-30, 1996.
“Diabetics are prone to infections and circulatory problems leading to heart disease, kidney failure and blindness. Glutathione protects against the complications of diabetes.” Clinical Science 91: 575-582, 1996.
“Healthy people also benefit from elevated glutathione levels through an enhanced ability to fight off toxins, infectious diseases, pre-cancerous cells, and the aging process itself.” Glutathione: Essential Health AID, Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP
