The content of this article is from the book “The Comprehensive Guide to Glutathione”
by Dr. Jimmy Gutman MD FACEP

The immune system coordinates a variety of specialized cells to fight off infection and other threats. The healthy growth and activity of these cells depends upon the availability of glutathione. Glutathione is at the heart of most immune functions, explaining why low levels are seen in many diseases. This is best exemplified by AIDS, which is characterized by a severely compromised immune system. 

Raising and maintaining glutathione levels can minimize the risk of these diseases. Although only very ill people are severely deficient in glutathione, those in good or fair health will benefit from glutathione supplementation, especially considering the environmental toxins and

drug-resistant bacteria we’re exposed to these days. 

The use of glutathione supplementation fights all kind of diseases from respiratory to auto immune to degenerative diseases.

Without question, the best type of preventive medicine is an optimized immune system, and a critical means to optimize it is by feeding it glutathione.

Diabetes Testimonial #1:

Dear Herb:

I am a Diabetic and I want to share my experience regarding this product. Before using it, I had been controlling my blood sugar levels (usually 114 fasting), through diet and one 5mg Glipizide tablet per day. After using 1 envelope for just 5 days, beginning mid-October, 2001, I experienced a significant drop in my blood sugar level (58) one and a half hours after breakfast (normal blood sugar runs 80 to 100). By increasing my food intake that day, I was able to raise my blood sugar to 74 by the end of the day.

This situation continued until I met and spoke to Dr. Guttman, November 15th at a Health Seminar in Princeton, NJ.  Dr. Guttman told me I needed to speak with my Dr. about stopping my medication or at least cutting the pill in half, in order to bring my blood sugar up to normal.  After speaking with my Dr. I elected to cut my medication in half at that time. 

By February 2002, my blood sugar began to drop again, so I stopped using the medication entirely.  I have been able to control my blood sugar since then by diet alone.  My fasting blood sugar runs 76 or below, and one and a half hour meals blood sugar runs 90 to 96.

Another improvement I experienced, which is what Dr. Guttman considers an important reason for a diabetic’s use of it, is my circulation.  I used to suffer from broken capillaries, causing red spots on my feet and ankles, which entirely stopped after 3 months on Immunocal. 

Also, I used to experience weakness and stiffness in my legs when I awoke in the am. That problem entirely stopped after only a week on 1 envelope of Immunocal per day.

These days, I use 2 or 3 envelopes of Immunocal per day.

Sincerely, Cathy G. (February 4. 2003)

Diabetes Testimonial #2:

When I was introduced to this product I was having a great deal of trouble keeping my sugar down, even though I was on Insulin injections. I had lost the sight in one eye and the other eye was ulcerated, with loss of vision eminent. I was terribly down and lacked the energy to move and was rapidly gaining weight.

My sister introduced me to this product, after her hearing a radio show on the benefits of glutathione and calling the number. It was also suggested that I take the Xtra Sharp and the vitamin, which I agreed on.

After two months on this product and the Xtra Sharp my sugar was leveled and upon going to my eye specialist I was told that the ulcerations were gone, as was the itching and running from the eyes.

I have more energy that I can ever remember having and I am now taking walks daily. In six weeks lost twenty-two pounds. Immunocal has definitely improved the quality of my life.

Oct. 2001:

Here is an unforgettable testimonial from the Portland Expo on diabetes. Shirley H. from Oregon shared:  

Hi! My name is Shirley H., a 74-year-old homemaker from Milwaukie, Oregon. After having several tests done at the Women’s Fair in October 1999, a nurse advised me to see my doctor because of elevated blood sugar. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes as a result of the HbA1c test done at that visit.

Next came a class at the hospital where we learned all aspects of diabetes, including neuropathy. At that time, I had no feeling from the ankles down, along with the tingling and pain. My disappointment came when I was told this condition would never go away and would continue to progress as more nerves were damaged.

And progress it did—until it finally reached both knees! Since this was something I had to live with for the rest of my life, or so I was told, I accepted the fact I would be very inactive when I should be exercising to help control my blood sugar and to lose weight.

Near the end of 2001, I learned about this product and on January 7, 2002 I took my first packet. Within weeks, I began to notice some things missing or improved. A sore in one ear was gone after 3 to 4 years.

No more headaches, because my year-round sinus infections were also gone after many years.  I was able to almost close both hands after arthritis prevented it from happening.

Imagine my excitement when I noticed that my neuropathy had lowered almost two inches below my knees. In the middle of March, I began taking two packets a day and by late June the neuropathy was only at the bottom of my feet.

How exciting for something that would NEVER be reversed!  We just came back from our church campout on the Oregon coast. This year I walked everywhere I needed to go, with much-improved balance.

Last year I could only walk short distances with assistance and had to be driven the longer ones. Praise the Lord for this product!!!!

Diabetes Testimonial #4:

Lois S. shared this: I was introduced to this product in October 2000. I am a diabetic and was taking glucophage 500mg AM and PM.

I began taking one packet per day. Within 1 1/2 months I was off of my glucophage. I went for my 3 months check up and my Dr. had a fit because I stopped my pills without his permission.

I asked him to wait until my blood test was back to see it’s results and he did. His nurse called me, to say that the Dr. said that the blood test was normal, to continue what I was doing!

I also was on the verge of having my gall bladder removed because of the pain that it caused me. After being on it for 6 weeks, the pain was gone and has not returned. What a powerful detoxifier that is.

I thank GOD for discovering this life-changing product. It has improved the quality of my life immensely.)

Diabetes Testimonial #5:

Sharon S. from shared this:

Sharon’s friend was diabetic. She was only on the pills so far, but controlling her diabetes was difficult. After just one box, taking it only once a day she has seen a BIG difference in her diabetes! She told Sharon, she NEVER wants to be without her it.

Diabetes Testimonial #6:

George, a 62 year old:

Since poor antioxidant and detoxification defenses are implicated in kidney disease and the complications of dialysis, there is no reason to believe that glutathione supplementation may help individuals like George, a 62 year old former country and western singer.

George had struggled with diabetes for over thirty years. Following only moderate success controlling his sugar levels, he developed progressive kidney failure and subsequent anemia. In a few short years, he went from an active, gregarious entertainer to a listless, sofa-ridden recluse.

His energy level and concentration deteriorated more and more and the local hospital clinic in Hawaii where he lived was obliged to monitor his condition closely. His levels of biliary urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine crept higher and higher – signs of diminishing kidney function – and his red blood cell (hemoglobin) value continued to fall.

His physician placed him on a waiting list to undergo preparation for dialysis. After hearing about glutathione, George started taking 20 grams per day of a whey protein isolate high in glutathione precursors.

Within three weeks his BUN and creatinine levels started to fall – a sign of improving kidney function. After a further three weeks his hemoglobin climbed by one full gram per deciliter (g/dL) of blood and he was again singing at his friend’s parties.

His wife was uncomfortable about his exposure to alcohol and cigarettes but three months later his renal function tests and hemoglobin levels had improved so much his physician put plans for dialysis on hold.

Diabetes Testimonial #7:

Deana was a motivated, positive entrepreneur who developed a wellness health center even though she suffered from a serious case of diabetes. Increasingly fatigued, this 32 year-old Texan continued to run her center even after receiving and rejecting a kidney transplant, failing eyesight and dialysis treatments.

Eventually,
she developed a chronic foot infection that required weekly debriding of dead tissue. Her doctor feared that amputation might prove necessary.

She began taking high doses of the whey protein isolate Immunocal and found her energy levels increased over several weeks. Kidney function tests and hemoglobin levels improved.

Medication doses for her anemia and hypertension were decreased or eliminated. Peripheral circulation was better. Five months later the foot was healed.

Deana has since married and continues to run her clinic.

Diabetes #8 Testimonial:

1/2/03 MY TESTIMONY ABOUT this product AND IT’S EFFECT ON CHOLESTROL & DIABETES:

Frank L.

I am a borderline diabetic. My Doctors require a blood testing of both conditions quarterly. My test results on July 30, 2003 and October 15, 2003 were as follows: Cholesterol 183 173, Triglycerides 86 68, HDL 46 53, LDL 120 105, Hemoglobin, A1C ( sugar ) 5.8 5.3

Being a borderline diabetic, cholesterol is under scrutiny much closer than if I wasn’t borderline; therefore a reading of 120 on July 30 would probably would not raise an alarm if I wasn’t a borderline diabetic.

The Doctor were watching this point very closely in July to see what the October reading would be. If it had stayed the same or increased, medication would be necessary.

In August I decided to increase my dosage to 2 pouches per day. To my amazement, my test results were very positive (as seen above ) even in that short period of time.

Thank God for this product, I don’t have to go on any toxic medication. To say the least, again I continue to be an affirmed believer in this product and will continue to share the great story of Dr. Bounous’s invention for the rest of my life.

Diabetes #9 Testimonial:

Dear Jim:

I have a friend who is a bad diabetic. She has been losing her sight for over a year due to diabetic retinopathy and has been traveling from Vegas to Seattle for treatment about 4 times a year.

The treatments are extremely painful and are of limited help. She started on this glutathione precursor around Thanksgiving. I just received a note from her in Seattle, as she saw her Dr yesterday. She has no active eye disease right now. Her eyesight is 20/70, which is quite good for her at age 55. But what is better is that her stress level is way down, as she was told to learn Braille and prepare to be blind for the rest of her life.

 DIABETES

Diabetes mellitus or sugar diabetes’ is the most common glandular condition in North America. It affects 10 to 25 million people, most of whom have yet to be diagnosed. Diabetics run an above-average risk of developing heart disease and stroke, the leading causes of death in the USA and Canada. Given that most types of diabetes and its complications are related to life-style and environment, this is for the most part a preventable problem.

Diabetes mellitus is an insulin disorder that impairs the body’s sugar metabolism. Flhe important hormone insulin is responsible for the absorption of sugar into cells for on-demand energy and into the liver and fat cells for energy storage. There are two main types of diabetes mellitus.

VisionFatigue problems constant thirst MuscleAtheroweaknesssclerosis KidneyFrequent failureurination Cystitis

Candidiasis

Tingling & numbness in handsFoot & feetinfections

Living with diabetes

In Type 1 diabetes mellitus, insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed. With regular injections of insulin, the patient may lead a normal life. Without it, he or she may lapse into coma and die.

                                                                                                    

In Type 2 diabetes mellitus, pancreatic production of insulin is diminished or the body gradually loses its ability to utilize it. This is by far the most common form of diabetes and is usually linked to bad eating habits, obesity and poor life-style.

Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are generally characterized by high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) but in cases of overmedication or illness/stress during medication blood sugar levels can plummet (hypoglycemia). Both events are potentially serious.

Hyperglycemia produces excessive thirst and urination, fatigue, weight loss, and dehydration. Occasionally, life-threatening illnesses (hyper-osmolar coma or ketoacidosis) may result from excessive sugar levels. These are medical emergencies requiring immediate hospitalization.

Some diabetics take insulin injections or pills to lower sugar levels and are susceptible to the complications of low blood sugar levels. This may happen because they take too much medication, miss a meal, increase their energy expenditures, become sick or febrile, or suffer any sort of stress. condition too must be treated immediately. Usually, a sweet drink or food is enough and produces rapid results.

Apart from the emergencies resulting from such blood sugar imbalances, most diabetics fall ill from complications of diabetes itself, of which there are two types: reduced ability to fight infection and damage to the circulatory system, including both small and large blood vessels. These complications can cause symptomatic problems with the eyes, muscle, kidneys, and bladder. They can also reduce energy levels, promote thirst, and cause tingling in the extremities. Cardiovascular plaque buildup is another result of diabetic complications.

DIABETES AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Diabetics should be considered immune-compromised because they are prone to many more infections than they can normally resist. Their immune systems may be overwhelmed by thrush and other fungal infections of the skin and even the bloodstream. Bacterial infections are more common and their consequences are serious — gangrene (especially of the toes and foot) and sepsis. Diabetics with any sort of infection must always be treated immediately and aggressively.

Most illness and death in diabetics is due to circulatory damage from heart disease, myocardial infarction, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, stroke, renal failure, neuropathy, blindness and other effects of impaired blood circulation. In fact, diabetic complications are the major cause of blindness in the USA. Diabetics are also more prone to cataracts and glaucoma.

GLUTATHIONE’S ROLE IN DIABETES

Glutathione plays an important role in the fight against diabetes. We have seen that it can prevent circulatory problems such as arteriosclerosis and stroke — the main causes of diabetic death. Glutathione also enhances the immune system. Many visits to the doctor or hospital could be avoided if diabetics were less prone to infection. Elevated glutathione levels may help by providing:

Immune system support against infection

Decrease of oxidative stress from hyperglycemia Decrease of platelet aggregation

Prevention of vascular complications including:  Atherosclerosis (as well as heart disease, stroke)

  • Nephropathy (kidney damage)
  • Retinopathy (retinal damage)
  • Neuropathy (nerve damage)

In this way, glutathione can help a weakened immune system combat bacterial infection and fungal infection, support compromised circulation against hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis), kidney failure (nephropathy), visual loss (retinopathy) and neurological problems (neuropathy). It also retards oxidative stress and anemia in dialysis patients.

It is clear that the small blood vessels of diabetics are subject to accelerated degeneration, but the causes of this particular illness are still being identified. Recent studies demonstrate that diabetics are more prone than others to oxidative stress and free radical formation. In fact, the blood and tissues of diabetics are marked by critically low glutathione levels.

R.R. Sundaram’s studies suggest that this antioxidant deficiency precedes the subsequent complications of diabetes. K. Yoshida and his research group have shown that low or weak glutathione synthesis leads to increased cellular damage and other complications. Going one step further, Thornalley’s trials revealed a correspondence between low glutathione levels and higher diabetic complications. S.K.Jain and R. McVie suggest that the low glutathione levels characteristic of diabetes play a role in impaired insulin secretion in uncontrolled diabetic patients.

Many researchers have established a link between low glutathione levels and a higher likelihood of endothelial damage, with increased platelet aggregation.

Other researchers have looked more specifically at the relationship of glutathione to isolated complications such as hypertension, diabetic neuropathy, and nephropathy, with favorable results. The role of glutathione in protecting red blood cells from oxidative damage in the case of renal dialysis is also very promising.

Drugs NAC and OTC can raise glutathione levels, but their effects are short-lived. These pharmaceutical drugs also have little nutritional value. Whey proteins have excellent nutritional value but usually lack glutathione precursors. The ideal source of dietary cysteine should be natural, nutritional, bioactive, and undenatured and As many of you are aware, whey protein, especially whey protein isolates (over 90% protein), are sometimes referred to as the “perfect” proteins because they contain all the essential amino acids required for your body’s protein synthesis. With a biological value (BV) of over 110, it would be challenging to find a protein utilized more efficiently than Immunocal.

CONCLUSION

Circulatory damage contributes substantially to diabetic complications and glutathione helps fight the oxidative damage that contributes to this damage. In fact, the blood and tissues of diabetics are marked by critically low glutathione levels. These complications could be avoided or minimized if diabetics were less prone to infection, and elevated glutathione levels may help accomplish that.

Glutathione as a dietary supplement.

We must first clarify an important, frequently misunderstood part of the glutathione story.

Upon learning about glutathione for the first time, many people go to their health store, buy it, and start dosing themselves. However, while glutathione is freely available in this form, this sort of oral, ingested glutathione will have negligible effects on your health. The product decomposes rapidly in the digestive system and is quickly removed from the gut. Apart from a few very specific instances, glutathione cannot be introduced into the body in this way. It must be made within your cells -which is where it’s naturally found. The effective way to stimulate the production of glutathione is to provide your body with the basic elements it needs to make glutathione by itself. Some pharmaceutical medications, such as N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), have been developed to provide these precursors. There are also natural ways to increase glutathione levels, in particular the use of denatured (bioactive) whey proteins.

These are discussed throughout this website.

The use of glutathione supplementation fights all kind of diseases from respiratory to auto immune to degenerative diseases.

Without question, the best type of preventive medicine is an optimized immune system, and a critical means to optimize it is by feeding it glutathione.

This is not the same glutathione that you see at the health food store. This is glutathione precursor. It’s very different because glutathione must be made inside your cells and the precursor is the food your cells   require to make its own glutathione as nature intended. That is the most natural and effective approach to boost your immune system.

It’s all natural with NO side effect.
