As you get older, it’s normal to feel different to how you once did; you might notice dips in your energy levels, and you may find that your body feels less resilient to challenges.
Your body may need extra support as you age, which is why staying active and following a healthy, balanced diet are so important. In addition, you may want to provide your body with additional reinforcements in the form of cellular nutrients. GlyNAC is one of these – let’s take a look at everything you need to know about this cellular nutrient.
What is GlyNAC?
GlyNAC is a patented combination of amino acids, Glycine and N-Acetyl Cysteine. GlyNAC is designed to provide your cells with building blocks needed for producing glutathione. But what exactly is glutathione and why is it important to support your body as you age?
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a powerful intracellular antioxidant – it’s actually one of the most important antioxidants in your body. It can also help to support the normal function of immune cells. In addition, glutathione helps other antioxidants – such as vitamin C and vitamin E – to do their jobs properly.
As you get older or are exposed to environmental stresses, your glutathione levels start to decline, which can reduce your body’s resilience to oxidative stress. This can have a big impact on your overall cellular health, affecting the natural aging processes taking place in your body.
Why is Glutathione Important?
Glutathione acts as a natural cell defender, playing a key role in helping to protect your cells from everyday toxins and free radicals that can cause oxidative stress.
Sources of free radicals can include pollution, sun exposure and cigarette smoke. Exposure to these can increase the production of free radicals in the body.
These free radicals have an unpaired electron, which makes them unstable and highly reactive as they seek to take electrons from other molecules in an attempt to stabilize themselves. An imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants can lead to oxidative damage within cells.
However, the effects of oxidative stress can be reduced if your body’s glutathione levels are adequate. Glutathione must be made inside our cells. This unique molecule is comprised of three amino acids – cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Each of these amino acids must be available in sufficient amounts for your cells to produce glutathione in response to your unique cellular needs.
Our Celltrient™ Cellular Protect Dietary Supplement formula contains GlyNAC to provide your cells with amino acid building blocks for producing Glutathione. Celltrient Protect drink mixes also contain a blend of micronutrients, including vitamin C, zinc and selenium to support normal immune function.
Take Celltrient Protect capsules twice a day, or use our lemon or cranberry-flavored drink mixes once a day. Simply mix one sachet with 4-6 fl oz. of water to create a refreshing flavor, adjusting the amount of water to suit your tastes.
