New Product – Glutathione Builder (GSH)

Glutathione (GSH) Basics

Genesis-BioHealth’s newest product, GSH builder, is targeted at helping the body create, use, and maintain adequate levels of Glutathione, abbreviated GSH.  The product contains balanced therapeutic amounts of N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) and Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA).  These nutrients work together to allow the body to produce glutathione more effectively than either ingredient alone.  Two capsules per day are all that is needed.

Impact on Chronic Inflammation, Aging & Degeneration

Glutathione (GSH) acts as the body’s number one antioxidant defense system.  Unlike general antioxidants we get from food, GSH is made and controlled by the body for a large variety of targeted purposes.  Some of GSH’s most powerful impacts are to improve both the function of the immune system and the body’s repair & cellular defense systems.  Both of these processes are important at helping to control inflammation.  Simply put, GSH is one of the best things for our body to help slow the aging process, and yes this even includes wrinkles!    Much evidence has accumulated that shows that many, if not most, of the ailments we get as we age, are related to both chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.  A few examples of common symptoms that might indicate the slow simmering of these conditions are:

  • Chronic pain
  • Allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Weight gain
  • Infections
  • GI problems
  • Acid reflux

On the other hand, if chronic inflammation and oxidative stress go on too long, a lengthy, but not exhaustive, list of common degenerative diseases that can arise is shown below:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Arthritis
  • Arthritis, Rheumatoid
  • Asthma, Allergies
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Autoimmune
  • Cardiovascular
  • Cancer
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s
  • Dementia
  • Dermatitis
  • Diabetes Insipidus
  • Eczema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inflammatory Bowel
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Joint Pain
  • Lupus
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Myalgias
  • Nephritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Psoriasis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Ulcerative Colitis

Impact on Immune System

While helping control inflammation is a powerful thing that GSH does, there are many more.  In fact, GSH gives broad-based improvement to the whole of the immune system.  Some ways it does this is by helping immune cells to be produced in much larger numbers, helping them grow to full size and strength, improving their germ-fighting weapons and the supply of ammunition needed to fight germs, giving them more fuel, while also helping them communicate and coordinate better with other types of immune cells, and the overall command and control of the entire immune system itself.

Why Supplement with GSH?

In short, degenerative conditions occur much more easily over time if the body cannot properly focus and control the inflammatory process.  This is one reason why working to ensure the body has adequate stores of GSH is so important as we age.  In the past, the body was able to make GSH more easily because cysteine, a common amino acid found in foods, and the most common limiting building block for its construction, was much more widely available in the food supply.  This is largely due to the more common use of unpasteurized milk, raw meats, and other raw food products in times past.  Cysteine is easily destroyed by medium to high temperature, so cooking and/or pasteurization largely destroy it, preventing the body from efficiently making GSH as well as possible.  This situation is what makes supplementation a good option for many who want to ensure they have enough GSH to help protect themselves over time.  Click here to buy now!

Delicious Caramel Recipe

Delicious Caramel Recipe

It can be challenging to find a tasty holiday treat when you are gluten-free.  However, Collin and I found a fantastic recipe from Love, Life, and Sugar for homemade caramel that comes out perfectly every time.  While we don’t advocate eating much sugar, when we do decide to indulge ourselves, we go for pure cane sugar to satisfy our sweet tooth.  Click here to see the “Easy Caramel Recipe.” 

We love to eat it on fresh apples (which may actually transform it into health food) or even put it in our coffee.  We liked it so much that we gave it as gifts to friends and family last year.  Now, they are asking us to make it again this year.  We water bath can small jars to give and to keep on hand.  This way, we do not have to worry about keeping it refrigerated until we open it. 

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
