    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering what are the best supplements for me to use in order to raise my glutathione levels. What dosage should I use also.

    Any advice on this would be much appreciated.

    Hope everyone is having as good a day as possible today.

    Love Evadyl X

    told me to get my glutathione levels up "any way I could."

    And he hadn't even tested me for it.. He thinks it's that important.

    I dont' think u can o'd on glutathione.

    You can take it various ways: IV glut, a fast push, oral liposomal (google lipoflow or Wellness pharmacy, AL). or

    Precursors:poor man's glutathione -- undenatured whey -- such as ImmunoPro Rx or RenewPro. Also, ALA and NAC help build glut esp. when taken with Vit C, E, and selenium.

    For more info, google Rich Van Konyenburg and glutathione. (He is an independent researcher who wrote a paper on it.)

    Alan Pressman wrote a book called Glutathione: The Master Antioxidant ....or something to that effect.

    I see you're Irish. My parents are Irish. I was born in the UK, now live in the STates.

    I can only imagine how tough it is getting good help where you are so anything I can do to help .... let me know.

    I see you were interested in transfer factor. TF has turned everything around for me. I am on the road to recovery. Pls check out my posts.

    It took me 10 years and a great deal of suffering to find a doc (an infectious disease specialist) who understands how to treat CFS.

    I would really like to spread the word.

    Be well

    it would be a good idea to do a search for glutathione on the board. This topic has come up before.

    ALSO, I should warn you that some people have to start off with very small doses of glutathione and glut. precursors..because they have an adverse reaction.

    In large doses, it can make me a bit brain fogged for a while.. but it passes. I try and take as much as I can afford.

    Best

    Supposedly undenatured whey protein makes glutathione. I recently read that this sort of glutathione works primarily in the liver, but I don't know if that's true.

    I use ImmunoPro Rx and think it's very helpful, especially at detoxification.

    Other people here say that they can't even take a pinch of it.

    I used liposomal glutathione (prescription) for a while, but did not feel like it helped anything.

    I just got through writing all the glutathione stuff so I'll tell you now while it's in my head. It's the most important detoxifier for the liver. You can get sublinguals and pills and even IVs but they usually don't work. Take N Acetyl Cysteine, like 250 mg 2-4 times a day. But be careful, if your liver's down, it will be toxic in high doses. Start slow and see if it makes you feel bad. It was the first supplement I took that helped. It is the main precursor to glutathione. You have to have it, it's in every cell. Undenatured whey protein will work but is not good if you have dairy intolerance and get an allergic reaction. I'd bought some at immunesupport but I sneezed the next day so I can't use it. It's probably the first thing that screwed up when I got ill; I'll never forget that day.

    The whey protein can be powerful and make you detoxify too fast so maby use like 1/2 teaspoon first time if you're in bad shape. Some people can't tolerate it. I've used sublinguals and couldn't tell anything. karen

    oral liposomal, nebulised and undenatured whey for 6 months.

    I can take 20 or 40 grams 4/8 scoops a day of the whey so people's tolerances are all over teh map...

    taking precursors is most effective way of building glutathione into the system. and CFIDS sufferers pretty consistently have low levels of glutathione.

    i recommend at least trying out Garden of Life Goateine whey powder. goat milk has larger molecules than cow's milk, and is more readily usable and tolerated by the body. i buy canisters at health food stores and mostly mix it into blender drinks. it's very pleasant tasting. i sometimes add carob powder to the drink to get that chocolate-y taste without the chocolate.

    sample blender drink: coconut milk, 1/2 banana, pineapple/blueberries, 1 scoop of Goateine whey powder, unsweetened cranberry juice (can add stevia for sweetening if desired), 2/3 tsp coconut oil ( extra virgin), some water to thin it a bit, and 6 ice cubes. it is just delicious and very satisfying. to make it even heartier you can add one raw egg before blending. and carob basically makes it into a chocolate milk shake. hope this is helpful- Sascha
