Getting More Glutathione and Antioxidant Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

The elusive nature of multiple sclerosis has been a source of clinical studies for years.  Researchers at the VU reaching-manUniversity Medical Center in Amsterdam released the results of a study treating 14 multiple sclerosis patients with a combination of antioxidants and other nerve-protecting agents.  The treatment resulted in reductions of relapses by two to three fold, plus decreases in corticosteroid medications.

The study concluded that oxidative stress can be counteracted by naturally occurring antioxidant enzymes which go on to provide protection against future oxidative damage to cells and tissue.

Glutathione is a naturally occuring antioxidant which is produced within the cells of our bodies providing protection against toxins.  Lack of glutathione is seen in virtually every instance of disease, including multiple sclerosis.

Glutathione can only be internally generated, therefore it is important to ingest supplements which will stimulate glutathione production.  Vitamin D3, vitamin K, pycnogenolalpha-lipoic acid, curcumin, resveratrol, B vitamins, and L-tryptophan all stimulate the cellular production of glutathione.

    Nicely done. In addition to the named precursors for glutathione production, the most effective one that is found in human breast milk and raw cow’s milk is bonded cysteine. Bonded cysteine is the rate limiting factor for intracellular glutathione production. One should look for a supplement that has this special double sulfhydryl bond of two cysteine molecules linked together.

    Hi Kevin. Click on the links for OPC-3, Isotonix D and the others listed in this post. Each product has tabs which list the ingredients, uniqueness, science and clinical study footnotes plus other information. Print off the pertinant information and let your health care provider or pharmacist look it over. Ask if anything in these antioxidants and nutrients will harm you. I know other people with ms who use these products and many health care providers recommend them, but you should have a consultation on your specific situation.
