What is Setria L-Glutathione?
What is it?
Setria L-Glutathione is a patented and clinically proven brand of reduced Glutathione, which is a tri-peptide amino acid found in every cell of the body. Tri-peptide is just a fancy way of saying that it's made from three amino acids, the molecular building blocks of proteins. Glutathione plays key roles in the human body and is sometimes called the "Master Antioxidant". Our bodies make it from the proteins that we eat on a daily basis. However lifestyle, age and illness can reduce our Glutathione levels. Supplementing with Glutathione provides the three needed amino acids in a reduced form so that our body can make more of stuff. As all antioxidants do, Glutathione neutralizes free radicals from toxins to detoxify our cells and organs. This is why we chose Setria as one of our main active ingredients in Intox-Detox.
A Little Dose of Poison
As poisons go, Ethanol (alcohol humans drink) is pretty mild. It can make us feel intoxicated without truly threatening our lives. We have a 2-stage process for metabolizing alcohol, so that we don't die every time we have a few drinks. Without this process, imbibing alcohol would be as dangerous as injecting heroine or using other hard street drugs. Luckily for us, drinking alcohol is usually only an acute and enjoyable poisoning. Glutathione plays a critical role in this process of breaking down alcohol at the liver level. It truly acts as an antidote to alcohol and may help protect our organs from its damaging effects.
For example, a common practice in the Emergency Room is administering Glutathione or its precursors from an IV drip. In a case of poisoning, let's say from overdosing on medication, this can save your life and prevent liver failure. While oral Glutathione administration is less effective, it is useful since alcohol is a much more acute form of poisoning. Setria has research showing that it may increase Glutathione levels in body tissues by up to 30%. Think of Glutathione as a Bouncer for your liver. It helps neutralize and escort the worst toxins out of your body before they can do too much damage.
A Partnership for the Ages
Our other main active ingredient, Japanese Raisin, makes the perfect compliment to Setria L-Glutathione. Both help to protect the body through different pathways. Japanese Raisin enhances the liver enzyme activity to more quickly breakdown Ethanol into its evil cousin Acetaldehyde. Gluathione is needed to neutralize and help remove that nasty "Hangover Toxin" Acetaldehyde from the body. It's a one-two punch that can not only protect our bodies from the damaging effects of alcohol but, also help avoid the misery of the next morning., Even with responsible drinking, some people experience headaches or hangovers. People confuse Intox-Detox with a "hangover cure" or panacea. It's better to think of the product as a safety device or antidote. One example is the bullet proof vest for your liver. SWAT team members wear kevlar because they have dangerous jobs. Chances are they will not get shot, but if they do, the vest is there to protect the vital organs. It doesn't feel great to get shot, even if you are wearing the vest, but it may just save your life. Similarly, drinking alcohol damages your body, and Intox-Detox is a proactive way of helping to protect your liver and other organs. Intox-Detox is not an excuse to binge drink or behave irresponsibly. The other example we like to give is getting bit by a poisonous snake. You must immediately get to a hospital and get the antivenom or face amputation or death. Just because you got the antidote, that doesn't make it an enjoyable experience. In the case of alcohol, you kind of bit yourself by drinking poison. By preemptively taking Intox-Detox, you know that you body is prepared for the toxins and that you will feel better after than if you had not taken it. Natural hangover remedies are not magic, they are just a matter of science. If you think of it as an antidote, rather than a cure, you will make better decisions when you choose to have a few drinks. Always drink responsible and get a sober ride. Intox-Detox does not prevent intoxication or cause instant sobriety. You would think that would be obvious, but a lot of people ask.
Other Setria Benefits
Setria L-Glutathione has many incredible benefits, even if you don't drink alcohol. Woman typically produce less Glutathione in their bodies. The ability to manufacture it in the body also decreases as you age. Hence, one general benefit is all around anti-aging effects. The free radical theory of aging states that the cumulative effect of damaging toxins ages our bodies more than just the "ravages of time". It seems to make sense when you consider the physical appearance of elder people who have "lived hard". Even a small boost to antioxidants daily can help fight toxins that slowly age you over time. Glutathione helps to detoxify the whole body at the cellular level, especially critical organs like the brain, lungs and liver that are constantly bombarded with toxins. One common use for Glutathione is for lightening and clarifying the skin. Daily use of Glutathione can help protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Glutathione has also been shown to improve physical performance and enhance immune function. Basically, if you get sick less, detoxify more and protect your skin and vital organs, you would look and feel much younger.
How to Take Glutathione
The best way to take Glutathione is as a daily supplement in the morning or before a workout. In fact, Intox-Detox makes a great daily supplement. Some customers take a pack with coffee in the morning, even if they didn't drink alcohol the night before. For daily maintenance usage, 200 to 250 milligrams per day is recommended. However, you can also Glutathione load by taking larger amounts, such as 500 to 1000 milligrams per day. There is a dose dependency, meaning that a greater effect is seen by taking more Setria L-Glutathione. However, there are probably very few benefits to taking any more than 1000 milligrams.
Recommendation: Take 200 to 250 milligrams of Setria L-Glutathione for every four or five drinks you consume. Remember that Glutathione works like an antidote to alcohol and is not an excuse to binge drink. For daily usage, take first thing in the morning or before a workout.
