One of my teacher’s Mark Hyman, MD, defined glutathione (GHS) as “The Mother of All Antioxidants”. He’s not alone, as there have been 117,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles on this powerhouse molecule, and experts are now acknowledging that there is an alarming number of people who are deficient due to: pre-mature aging, chronic stress, infections, over use of antibiotics, even so-called “health foods” to name a few.
