As more and more people live longer, the rate of Alzheimer’s disease is also increasing.
It is interesting that one of the emerging causative factors associated with Alzheimer’s disease pathology is oxidative stress.
This has been attributed to decreased levels of the antioxidant glutathione in the brain (Sahara S, Mandal PK, 2014).
Research also indicates that inhibiting intracellular glutathione synthesis induces a neuroinflammatory response (Lee M, et al. 2010).
This suggests that increasing glutathione levels in glial cells may provide neuroprotection in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease which has a neuroinflammatory component.
Glial cells provide a support function for nervous system components.
Providing more protection for your nervous system may be as easy as taking some capsules of S-Acethyl Glutathione.

Effective S-Acetyl Glutathione
Glutathione is your primary defense against aging.
It’s a very effective antioxidant the body makes to protect itself from free radical damage (oxidative stress). It can help repair cells that are damaged by stress, radiation, pollution, infection, and other illnesses.
Glutathione helps your cells function, and supports a healthy immune system. Research shows that glutathione deficiency can lead to increased susceptibility to diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
