Much of the pain and inflammation of auto immune disease has been shown to be the consequence of “ oxidative stress ” and “ free radical damage.” The best way to increase the body’s ability to “mop up” excess free radicals before they can cause damage – to the joints, nerves, brain, lungs, skin or gut – is by increasing glutathione levels.
Researchers have indeed demonstrated the lessening of inflammation in the affected areas by raising glutathione levels in the tissues. (e.g. Rheumatologists at Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands)
Therefore, even though the “target” of these auto immune diseases is vastly different, enhancing the natural mechanism that reduces the inflammation will be of benefit to all.
Enhanced glutathione levels have been reported as beneficial for auto immune diseases including:
Allergies, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Scleroderma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Scleroderma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or RA, Psoriasis, Graves disease, and Myasthenia gravis...
...as well as digestive diseases such as Crohns disease, ulcerative colitis -- inflammatory bowl disease -- irritable bowel syndrome, IBS... and allergies, asthma and also Menieres disease.
