Glutathione: The Mother Of All Antioxidants
Glutathione is something our bodies produce naturally — technically since the day we were born. It's a master compound, a peptide that consists of three amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine) produced in the liver to combat toxins and aid in the production of red + white blood cells. Although we naturally produce glutathione, our production of said compound drops roughly 10% per decade. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, "Our body can make its own glutathione; unfortunately, numerous things—including a poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, injury, infections, and radiation—can quickly exhaust this significant antioxidant."

How Can I Raise My Glutathione Levels?
Gratefully, glutathione can be found in both animal and plant cells. You're probably already consuming these foods on a daily basis, at least I hope you are. If not, get your mind right and get yourself to the market.
+ Try incorporating more of these foods to boost production:
Collard Greens/Mustard Greens
PRO TIP- I recommend enjoying foods known to boost glutathione levels instead of taking a supplement. Not everything is a quick fix. Slowly and consistently eat your way to a healthier body.
