Urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman sits down with researcher Dr. John P. Richie Jr. from Penn State University to discuss a recent study about the benefits of glutathione, a naturally occurring antioxidant found in human cells, tissues and organs.
Dr. Richie explains that glutathione helps protect cells from toxins, heavy metals, pesticides and solvents and is involved in excreting these agents from the body through the liver and kidneys. It also combats free radicals, which can attack the body through air pollution and trigger cell damage.
Dr. Richie adds that natural levels of glutathione can become depleted as we age, as well as through unhealthy habits. Although certain foods can boost glutathione in the body, including avocado, asparagus, broccoli and spinach, some individuals may benefit from taking a nutritional additive.
