Heart Disease and Glutathione

WHAT IS HEART DISEASE?
Heart disease is one of the leading cause of death in the world. There are several forms of heart disease, but heart disease primarily comes from the buildup of fatty deposits on the inner surface of arteries. Eventually these deposits block blood flow, leading to a heart attack or stroke. Heart disease is also associated with arteriosclerosis which refers to the loss of elasticity or hardening of the arteries.

The Root Cause of Heart Disease
FREE RADICALS CAUSES HEART DISEASE
We can say that Free Radicals is a big risk factor of Heart Disease. Arteriosclerosis, has been linked to lipid peroxidation - the oxidation of lipids or fats by free radicals. Scientists now believe that it’s not just the eating of fat that causes the buildup on the inner surface of the arteries, but those fats that have been damaged by free radicals. This is called oxidized fat, which causes the fat to be more sticky therefore adhering to the inner artery walls more easily. This explains why smoking and stress (source of free radical) are risk factors to heart disease.

HOW ENDOGENOUS ANTIOXIDANT GLUTATHIONE REDUCES THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE.
The enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which requires glutathione, detoxifies the lipid peroxides produced during the oxidation of lipids. With the help of glutathione, lipid peroxidation which may result to arteriosclerosis, can be avoided. Endogenous antioxidant glutathione therefore reduces the risk of heart disease.

GLUTATHIONE AND THE HEART
The heart is at the core of good health. Experiencing optimal health requires a heart functioning at its peak. There are many factors that contribute to a healthy heart and glutathione plays a pivotal role. Antioxidants, and especially the most powerful endogenous antioxidant, glutathione, neutralize free radicals. It means that the cells in your heart are protected, allowing it to pump hard when you need it. With its big role in controlling free radicals, glutathione is essential in supporting optimal heart function.

To prevent Free Radical damage that may lead to heart disease, try to increase your body's endogenous antioxidant production by taking natural glutathione supplements.
