Do you want to be healthy and prevent disease? One way to accomplish this is to depend on God and the miracle disease fighter He creates inside your cell daily, called Glutathione.
Glutathione is formed daily in your body by your liver cells. It is involved in many processes, including tissue building and repair, making proteins needed in the body, and for building the immune system. Amazingly glutathione can also be found out in Creation in fruits, vegetables and meats! Healthcare can give glutathione as a shot (injection into the muscle) to prevent poisonous side effects of cancer treatment and it has also been used for treating alcoholism, asthma, heart disease and infertility! However, most people simply get a daily feeling of energy and good health when levels are adequate! Glutathione, essentially has your back as your immune system and when your levels fall the immune system becomes critically compromised.
One way to raise the bodies glutathione levels is to supplement daily with a nutrient called NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine) which is a derivative of the dietary amino acid l-cysteine. NAC has a high affinity for lung tissue, which it supports through mucolytic and antioxidant action. By disrupting di-sulfide bonds, NAC thins mucus. It is a powerful free radical scavenger and thus supports the body's natural defense system. NAC supports tissue levels of glutathione, a key component of the antioxidant defense system.Immune And Respiratory System Health: When mucus thickens, it can become difficult to expel. If you are a healthcare provider you might be interested in knowing that a recent meta-analysis of 8 double blind, placebo controlled trials provided additiona lsupport for NAC's ability to support respiratory tract health!
Due to its sulfur content, NAC is able to disrupt di-sulfide bonds, thinning the mucus so that it, along with the trapped particles and bacteria, are more easily expelled from the lungs. NAC is a powerful free radical scavenger and thus supports epithelial cell health and healthy cilia activity in the respiratory tract. NAC is also a precursor to the antioxidant Glutathione.
The biochemistry camps certainty have done an awesome job publishing their findings about this miracle substance but medicine is really behind in integrating Glutathione into medical management of disease. Glutathione is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids − cysteine, glycine, and glutamine − and it is produced naturally in the body. It is called “the master antioxidant” because it can regenerate itself in the liver and fight free radicals produced from environmental toxins or every day toxic food metabolism and aging.
Glutathione is critical for the power-house of your cells called the Mitochondria. Damaged or malfunctioning mitochondria are part of the cancer process, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease, autism, heart disease, chronic fatigue and autoimmune diseases. NAC is a building block for Glutathione because NAC has Cysteine that survives the digestive tract and gets into the cells thus increasing your glutathione levels.
For those of you who have access to organic raw milk have a nice supply of daily cysteine! Cow's milk once pasteurized or heated breaks down the bonded cysteine molecules and cysteine then is essentially useless for building intracellular Glutathione. Human breast milk has loads of bonded cysteine and is why God created the breast milk miracle as a "stand-in immune system" for our infants!
L-cysteine (synthetic) is made using chemicals.Cysteine is not really good to take isolated as a dietary supplement because it can promote hypercysteinemia and can be potentially toxic. Its absorption into the blood stream is limited and it is easily oxidized in the digestive tract. It does get used in baking dough, commercial breads and pastry products and also in pet food for flavor. FDA does not require L-cysteine to be listed on food labels as flavor so this may be why some people get gut issues when they eat bread products. I feel that NAC is a much safer way to consume cysteine and raise the Glutathione levels in your body. NAC has been used in HIV patients with severely low levels of glutathione, and in emergency departments to treat over-dose of Tylenol. It has been used for chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, emphysema and asthma just to name a few lung disorders.
So how else can you raise Glutathione levels? I am a fan of IV Glutathione and have seen it work well with Parkinsons patients. I am also a fan of getting glutathione markers measured in your urine by having an Organic Acid Panel.
You can take Liposomal Glutathione orally but you have to make sure you are getting the "real" patented liposomal delivery technology. You can also take undenatured whey protein concentrates which has excellent bioavailability.
Certain foods contain precursors that help the liver produce more glutathione such as garlic, onions, broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, whey products and colostrum. Some studies have reported EXERCISE will boost glutathione levels. B6 and B12 are critical to help the body produce glutathione as well as vitamin C, E and selenium.
You can get access to my entire Glutathione Protocol on my Wellevate on-line e-store. After you register you will be able to shop for medical-grade strength products and have access to my recommended nutritional and detox PROTOCOLS.

Dr. Carly Willeford, DNP/FNP creates supplemental treatment plans that are truly integrative, collaborative, and connected to research. Dr. Carly's goal has always been maximize the potential of supplements to be truly holistic, effective, and convenient for both practitioner and patient.
If I was to pick one supplement everyone needs to be taking is B Complex because you bodies chemistry pathways require the B's at almost every step to make energy.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) aims to ensure that the body can produce new, healthy cells. It has also been reported to possess anti-stress properties, in addition to the ability to boost your immune system. Vitamin B1 is also essential for the breakdown of simple carbohydrates.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) helps to get rid of particles in the body which can damage our cells. B2 has also been linked with the potential prevention of early ageing, in addition to the ability to reduce your risk of heart disease .
Furthermore, B2 is essential for the production of red blood cells and haemoglobin, which is responsible for ensuring that the rest of your body’s cells receive the oxygen that they require. There have also been studies  which suggest that vitamin B2 can help in overcoming migraines, however, the results are not conclusive.
One of the main uses of vitamin B3 (niacin) is to increase the levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) in the blood. These are the so-called ‘good cholesterol’. The higher your HDL levels are, the lower your overall cholesterol levels are. This means you are at a lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
Pantothenic Acid (B5)
Vitamin B5 can be found in pretty much all foods, albeit in small quantities. Its main responsibilities include breaking down fats and carbohydrates for energy, and the producing of important hormones such as testosterone.
Vitamin B6 has several different qualities which are a little less known of. First of all, it works to regulate the levels of homocysteine (an amino acid associated with heart disease). Furthermore, it helps to body to produce hormones such as serotonin and melatonin, as well as norepinephrine. These are sleep and stress hormones so will alter your mood and energy levels.
Vitamin B7, also known as the beauty vitamin, has several benefits when it comes to your appearance. It has been linked with improving the appearance of skin, hair and nails.
Vitamin B9 has several key benefits. It has been linked  to the prevention of memory loss, as well as improving depression. It has also been linked with the growth of the babies, to prevent birth defects.
The main role of vitamin B12 is to aid the other B vitamins in completing their ‘jobs’. It works with folate to produce red blood cells as well as to produce haemoglobin.

If the adrenal glands are messed up the entire body is messed up! It is basically that simple because your adrenal glands run the show. If you have exhausted the adrenal glands your thyroid is going to be sluggish, your gut is going to have issues, your sex hormones are definitely going to be depressed and you will not be feeling "young" or energetic.

Many of my patients have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. The product I recommend for this is Melatonin liquid. I suggest 1/2 to 1 dropper at 1/2 to 1 hour before bedtime. This may have sedating effects so only take it at bedtime! You must be very careful as to what Melatonin Liquid you consume.
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland the organ which regulates the body's sleep /wake cycle. The hormone is secreted in as part of your bodies normal 24 hour circadian rhythm pattern that goes on every day if your stress level is normal. It is secreted by enzymes, which are activated by DARKNESS and NO LIGHT!
So get off your phone, turn off your laptops and TV and get your enzymes working so your melatonin starts flowing and you have a deep relaxing sleep so you can conquer the world in the morning! Click Here to Purchase.
One product I use all the time is a product from the folks over at Metabolic Maintenance called Happy Belly.
Happy Belly was formulated in conjunction with my favorite lab company Genova Diagnostics to aid in restoring a normal balance of microorganisms to the GI tract. The scientist involved in formulating it reviewed over 600 stool specimens and organic acid profiles and found the most common abnormal issues that most people show in the stool and urine testing.
Remember, over 500 different microorganisms live in the gut. We like to know the levels of the beneficial compounds that live in your gut especially digestive enzymes and lactic acid that keep your bowels and body functioning well! We also like to know the levels of microorganisms we don't want around in the gut like parasites as well as organisms like candida that we don't want to get out of balance.
If and when pathogenic organisms that reside in your gut get out of balance you experience an overgrowth of these pathogenic organisms and then the problem starts! This imbalance is called dysbiosis and can product GI discomfort and interfere with your immune system. Anything from antibiotics, to gluten sensitivity to the chemicals in food to pesticides to the toxic fillers in supplements all can cause the delicate balance to go crazy and next thing you know you are swelling or having gas or worse fatigued because you are not getting the absorption of vitamins and minerals out of the food due to the swelling of the small intestine.
Happy Belly to the RESCUE! Take it daily!
The ingredients are the ones most found effective for ridding the gut of harmful organisms based on stool analysis! Click here to purchase this outstanding product for your gut! When you land on the home page, type Happy Belly in the search section!
There are so many nutritional companies in America as well as thousands of individuals selling products obtained from over-seas. Who knows what is in them. Supplements are an "unregulated" field which opens the door to toxic products getting into the body and brain.
I have seen hundreds of patients come to my practice for medical care and bring their supplements in a bag. I am always shocked how much they have purchased and their story is usually "nothing is working." You have to be very careful before you take anything and when you do take a nutritional supplement you must know exactly why you are taking it and what is in it. Most supplements are full of toxic excipients and fillers.
One company I recommend for superfoods and nutritional supplements is the Health Ranger Store. This company is owned and operated by Mike Adams who is an outspoken consumer health advocate, and award-winning journalist. Every product sold by the Health Ranger Store has been extensively tested in the Consumer Wellness Center Labs using ICP-MS atomic spectroscopy instrumentation, He puts his integrity on the line and guarantees 100% organic products or in certain cases some products are actually higher quality because they are "wild-crafted" and "pesticide free."
