Having a perfect diet does not mean you can adequately protect your body from free radicals, as they enter the body in a variety of ways including environmental pollutants (air, water and pesticides), processed foods and lifestyle habits including cigarette smoking. When you hear about free radicals, it is important to understand that the damage they do to cells is substantial if not controlled or counteracted by your body’s best and only defense against the destruction of healthy cells; antioxidants.
Vitamins such as vitamin E, beta-carotene and vitamin C combat free radicals. Selenium is a trace metal that also has an important role in antioxidant functioning. Vitamin E can be acquired in a natural diet that is rich in nuts, certain vegetables, whole grains, apricots and some fruits. Vitamin C (required for the production of vitamin A in the body) is present in citrus fruits, green peppers and leafy vegetables such as kale. Beta carotene (retinol) is acquired in foods like carrots, broccoli, yams and cantaloupe.
The Link Between Antioxidants and Good Health
Consider your daily diet from an antioxidant perspective. How many of these essential foods and nutrients are you receiving consistently to support the healthy antioxidant functioning that your body needs to combat cellular damage? Health and wellness starts at the cellular level, and high quality nutritional supplements are an effective way to bridge the gap between the nutrients you eat daily and the full spectrum of vitamins and minerals your body needs consistently to combat free radicals and to promote a healthy immune system.
There are other aspects to managing your personal wellness, including hydration and regular exercise, but nutrition is the key to achieving and maintaining health at all ages and in every stage of life. Dr. Robert Keller was passionate about educating others on the key role of antioxidants and healthy aging, and his research formulated a family of supplements designed to work synergistically to provide comprehensive nutritional support and cellular health.

These supplements are advertised using information that is true about the inherent value of glutathione to healthy functioning. The prospectus for these supplements refer to the benefit of increased immunity, endurance, muscle strength and enhance protection against inflammation and chronic disease. Glutathione is valuable to your body and an important part of aging healthfully, but what they don’t tell you is that oral glutathione supplements do not work well. It is convenient but according to clinical publications and tests, it is not an efficient way to increase or sustain levels of glutathione in the body.
Facts about Oral Glutathione
- Oral glutathione is a small protein molecule that is easily digested by the stomach.
- Oral glutathione is almost completely lost in the digestive track with very small amounts able to successfully enter the blood stream intracellular.
- Oral glutathione is most rapidly absorbed within the lungs (this offers some benefit to lung cancer patients).
- Oral glutathione levels were increased for a short period of three hours (average).
“The studies concluded that to achieve the optimal benefit of oral glutathione supplements, an adult would have to be severely glutathione deficient and take a minimum of 14 capsules every 3-5 hours.”
Despite the fact that television and celebrities are promoting the benefit of oral glutathione, the medical community acknowledges that glutathione supplements offer minimal value.
The Original Glutathione Formula™ RobKellerMD© manufacturers the Original Glutathione Formula™ which is the culmination of the research of our founder, Dr. Robert Keller. He lectured tirelessly and published research that conclusively acknowledged the inefficiency of oral glutathione. What Dr. Keller wanted consumers to understand was that there was a powerful inherent value to increasing glutathione levels in the human body, and his formula devised a method of stimulating the body to accelerate the production of gluatathione nutritionally. What makes our product different? By supporting your body with healthy nutrients it needs, it is better able to combat the impairment of toxins at the cellular level. The daily supplement (six per day) provides the essential vitamins and nutrients your body needs to produce more glutathione, and rid your body of free radicals more efficiently for better health and wellness.
