Glutathione is scientifically proven in over 99,000 published peer-reviewed studies to provide you a myriad of benefits. Unfortunately, most conventional oral glutathione remedies are not as effective because it is poorly absorbed. As a solution, we developed EDG3 which is formulated with patented amino acid blend which acts as a precursor to Glutathione. This means that by taking EDG3, you are priming your body to produce Glutathione naturally. So what is so great about Glutathione and why do we need it?
Glutathione and Cancer
Cancer is a disease of improper cellular replication due to cell DNA damaged. The immune system destroys cancer cells because it detects this abnormality. However, when too many cancer cells are created, immune system cannot keep up and we end up with cancer. Glutathione protects our DNA from free radical damage and boost up the immunity. Our blueprints remain undamaged and less likely becomes cancerous cells. Strong immune system also protects us from variety of cancers.

Glutathione and Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetics have high levels of oxidative stress because when sugar remained in the blood vessels for long time, many free radicals are generated and body’s antioxidant level is not enough to neutralize them. Inflammation leads to insulin resistance which further worsens the complication of diabetes mellitus.

Glutathione and Eye Disease
The lens of your eyes is highly concentrated with glutathione. Free radicals are constantly generated in your eyes especially when you’re working in front of your computer, or expose to environmental pollution. Free radicals continuously damage your lens, and accelerate the aging process, leading to dry eyes, cataract, etc. Glutathione protects the eyes from free radical damage, and thereby maintaining healthy vision.

Glutathione and Alzheimer’s Disease
Brain cells are frequently exposed to many free radicals because it consumes 20% of the oxygen used in the body. Free radicals damage the brain cells, deteriorate your memory and increase your risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson, etc. Therefore, glutathione is an important antioxidant to protect the brain and delay the aging process. Studies reported that increasing glutathione is a promising therapeutic strategy to prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
