Glutathione, a naturally produced antioxidant, plays a critical role in managing Hashimoto’s disease.

Its capacity to reduce oxidative stress, detoxify the body, chelate heavy metals, and fortify the immune system’s T regulatory system contributes significantly to Hashimoto’s treatment.

So the topic is Hashimotos and glutathione. 
So it's kind of when I isolate one,   When you isolate one of these, in this particular 
case, antioxidants out versus all of the other   Things in the constellation of Hashimotos, it's a 
little more challenging to give you a good picture   Of this. So if you're asking this question, 
you already know that maybe you don't know,   But it's a good possibility you already 
know that glutathione is a huge antioxidant   Meaning, and it's made in your 
liver, and it's made in your cells.  So it's in your cells. So it's protecting your 
cells from oxidative stress. You overworking,   You overdoing it, you're over drinking, you 
over smoking. All these things that create these   Reactive oxidation species that are destroying 
our health and not sleeping and so on and so   Forth. So glutathione, dampens the oxidative 
stress that is created by those things and more   That damage your cells, damage your mitochondria.
The glutathione, some people know it as primarily   The big detoxer because it is anti-inflammatory. 
It is antioxidant. It's a big part of your liver   Detoxification. There's a glutathione 
pathway in your liver that takes smells   And chemicals and takes, I'm sensitive to 
lotions, I'm sensitive to hair shampoos.   Those come into your system as particles. They 
get into your bloodstream, they get into the   Liver. And then glutathione literally takes those 
particles and it grabs them and it crushes them,   And it brings them to a pathway where they 
can be made water soluble. So another ion   Can be attached to them and they can go out into 
the urine or into the feces or into the sweat.  So glutathione, it's a chelator. A lot of people 
use high doses of glutathione to chelate heavy   Metals out. That's one of the big things that 
it does. It neutralizes a lot of these toxins   That are making us sick. Glutathione for me, 
relative to Hashimotos, both of those things   Are important because oxidative stress as well 
as toxins are big triggers and perpetuators of   Autoimmunity, Hashimotos. And so from that 
perspective, it has that part of the puzzle.  The biggest thing for Hashimotos, I think in 
addition to these two, or maybe even above   These two, is glutathione helps to fuel and 
strengthen a part of your immune system called   The T regulatory system. So what does this 
part of system do? If you get an attack,   A viral attack, okay? A virus, so many viruses 
are triggers for Hashimotos, but if you get a   Viral attack and your immune system has to attack 
it, it'll attack, it'll attack, it'll attack.   Hopefully it'll kill the virus eventually. 
But something has to tell the immune system,   "Hey, you've killed the virus, now stop."
And it's called the T regulatory part of your   Immune system. And this regulatory part says, 
"Okay, it's enough. You've killed it. You've   Stabbed it. You've beaten it up. You've chopped 
it into pieces, it's dead. It's a gone. Stop."   That is important, okay? That is an important 
function otherwise, your immune system goes crazy   And starts doing other things like attacking you. 
Now, when your DNA says that it's all right for  

That virus to attack you, and that virus exceeds 
the regulatory system's ability to stop it,   That doesn't deter the regulatory system.
Every time you have a trigger, that regulatory   System is now going to try to stop that 
virus not from not being killed anymore,   But from attacking the tissue that your immune 
system says it can attack and glutathione is   What fuels that system. It's what makes that 
system strong. So when people have autoimmunity,   They almost all have low glutathione because 
the glutathione is being literally sucked   Right out of your system all day long.
If you're not aware of what your triggers   Are, and every time you eat a food that you're 
sensitive to or allergic to. Or every time you   Get an inflammatory response, or every time 
you overdo it or any of 40 different things,   Your glutathione is being used to strengthen that 
system, which is trying to stop the inflammatory   Response that's created by that trigger from 
getting your immune system to attack you.  Those are the three big areas, and glutathione 
does even way more than that. It's insane. It   Helps heal your blood brain barrier and it helps 
you… It does so many things. It's insane. I mean   It's really, it's just the top. It's the biggest 
antioxidant. It's the most powerful antioxidant   That research knows of at this point in time. 
And so that's one part of what is important to   Do with Hashimotos. But glutathione should be a 
big player in any person's Hashimoto's protocol.
