    My Nutrition Almanac lists the food sources of Glutamic Acid but not those of glutathione..Are they interchangeable.?.Am chasing this up because i prefer food rather than supplements.

    I know of is undenatured whey. It contains precursors for making glutathione in the body.

    Hope this helps but if there is a food source I wouldn't mind knowing myself.

    Food sources with the highest amounts of naturally occurring glutathione include; asparagus, avocado, grapefruit, squash, potato, cantaloupe, peach, zucchini, spinach, broccoli, watermelon, and strawberries. Fish, meat, and foods which yield sulfur containing amino acids (e.g. eggs) are the preferred sources for maintaining and increasing bodily glutathione levels. [

    Hey, haven't posted in a while. Also look up raw (unpasturized milk) and raw cheese. You can buy the milk direct from farmers sometimes.Take vitamin C also to raise your levels, in fact all the antioxidants play a role in glutathione uptake. Also milk thistle and flax seed help body to support glutathione uptake. I take vitamin C and E, milk thistle and flax seed among others. This weekend I will pick up my first order of raw milk and I have ordered a juicer to begin juicing.

    I haven't posted here in a while cause I've been more busy than usual, but every time I check in here it seems like someone asks the same questions that I have, including this one about glutathione. There's no question that without this board I wouldn't feel as good as I do right now. Thank you all!!!!

    As for glutathione, I bought a five-pack of the B-12 shots with AMP and glutathione from Dr. Holtorf's office, L.A. FFC. I had no idea that it's so easy to give myself these shots once a week, and it doesn't even hurt, really. I find that they are so very helpful at keeping my energy levels up.

    Can you tell me how much the 5 Pack of B12, AMP and Glutathione cost you? I go to FFC in Connecticut and may ask about this next time. Thanks.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, the five-pack costs $120, and I think it's $35 apiece if you get them there.

    I thought it would be hard to give it to myself, but for some reason it doesn't hurt except a little tiny bit as and after the liquid goes in. I don't even feel the needle part.

    Asparagus is one of the richest sources of glutathione. It's also a highly alkaline food. This is a winning combo for healing many diseases.

    I ran into a testimony abut it on a cancer site. A survivor got over near deadly breast cancer by flooding herself w/ alkalizing foods, cheifly glutathione rich ones. The biggie was asparagus. her and her hubby still have asparagus daily as a preventative. They blend it up and freeze it in bulk, in soups and as a puree they put in vegetable drinks for handiness.

    Thank you for that info. I think I might ask for it when I go next time. ;)
