Glutathione Increasing Probiotics

Probiotics Can Increase Glutathione

Glutathione molecule

Our gut plays a huge role in detoxification. Learning more about the human microbiome and about all the probiotic strains that help support good health, can be very confusing and difficult to see the big picture.

Let’s take a look at the big picture and start off with the importance of antioxidants and the role they play in maintaining our good health. Did you know that they are made in every cell in our bodies, all the time …. and trillions of them?

The production of antioxidants is the primary way to reduce free radicals activity.

One very important antioxidant is glutathione. It’s one of those antioxidants that effects everything from top to bottom, and it has an important function of protecting our DNA. When there is damage to our DNA it may increase our risk for all kinds of diseases.

Unfortunately there are many factors, including medications, that reduce our natural glutathione reserve. What are they? … beer, … wine …. actually, any alcohol. Even though it’s used so commonly for pain relief, acetaminophen is another culprit.

Scientists have identified a particular probiotic strain that naturally boosts glutathione. We know that it depletes quickly because when we really challenge our bodies this is the way the ‘cellular trash’ gets removed.

This probiotic strain is called Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 and sometimes abbreviated in scientific literature as “L. Fermentum ME-3.” ME-3 refers to the strain which is a relatively new discovered probiotic strain.

Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 is now patented because of it’s unique ability to increase glutathione levels.

The History behind Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3

Dr Marika Mikelsaar discovered Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 probiotic strain that stimulates glutathione growthIt was first isolated in 1995 by Dr Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD & her associates doing research at the University of Tartu, in Estonia. In 2007 Dr Marika Mikelsaar won an award for her work as a microbiologist in 2007.

She also received the European Union award for the actual discovery of L. fermentum ME-3.

Before her discovery she was involved with the Russian Space Program and was studying the intestinal microflora of Russian astronauts. It was then that she was able to isolated L. fermentum ME-3. Since then research has focused on discovering more about the health benefits.

Mihkel Zilmer, MD, PhD who also does research at the University of Tartu in Estonia has focused his work on how this particular probiotic strain actually boosts glutathione. It was unexpected that this strain would boost glutathione as it isn’t a typical probiotics benefit.

This is a very important benefit because it’s almost impossible to take a truly effective supplement of glutathione. Glutathione supplements can be beneficial, but it’s really hard to get a meaningful level of glutathione with supplements as we can’t measure how much is atually getting into the cell to do its clean up.

Also, taking oral glutathione supplements sometimes results in feeling poorly when we eat sulfur-based foods, medications or other supplements.

What is Reg’Activ?

Reg’Activ™ is brand name for L. fermentum ME-3 supplements distributed by Essential Formulas.

There are 3 different formulas:
One is for heart health and wellness.
One is for immune function and vitality.
One is for liver and detoxification.

Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 facts:

Research show confirms that L. fermentum ME-3 improves Glutathione using 3 different mechanisms:

  1.  it synthesizes glutathione itself*
  2.  it regenerates reduced glutathione (GSSG) back into its active state (GSH)*
  3.  it takes in available glutathione molecules from it’s surrounding environment

Here are some of the most significant Benefits of L fermentum ME-3

ME-3 increases glutathione levelit’s ability for detoxification. Glutathione is known to support the body’s normal detoxification systems especially heavy metals like mercury, arsenic and lead.

Glutathione is known to help neutralize air pollutants and agricultural pesticides.

Most of glutathione is made in the liver. This pathway is one of the ways to neutralize and remove a wide range of toxins in the body. L. fermentum ME-3 has the ability to increase total antioxidant activity and may help support a healthy liver.*

L. fermentum ME-3 has been shown to help maintain triglyceride levels already in the normal range and increase levels of the “good” HDL cholesterol* It even helps maintain healthy levels of oxidized LDL-cholesterol already within the normal range.*
