Glutathione is a Game Changer

Why is Glutathione so Important?

The brand name Reg´Activ® was created from the words “Active Regeneration.” This active regeneration is precisely what occurs when the patented probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3  produces and recycles Glutathione.

Glutathione is the “Master Antioxidant,” which is so important because it is used by every cell in the body.

Glutathione is touted by scientists as the “Master Antioxidant” for its crucial role in maintaining cellular health during daily exposure to free radicals, common environmental toxins and the effects of aging.

Lactobacillus fermentum ME–3 Supports the Body in 3 Areas

  • Maintaining a healthy immune system
  • Supporting the health of cardiovascular tissue
  • Promoting healthy liver function for detoxification

Lactobacillus fermentum ME probiotic is the potent strain in Reg’Activ Probiotic formulas.

There are three different Reg Active formulas to choose from. 

They all include the extremely effective probiotic strain Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3.

Each of the three different Reg’Activ formulas have added known beneficial ingredients which focus on these particular body functions, adding to the therapeutic doses of Lactobacillus fermentum ME – 3:

(1) Reg ’Activ – Immune & Vitality
(2) Reg ‘Activ Detox & Liver Health
(3) Reg ‘Activ Cardio Wellness


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.*

Reg’ Activ Is Now Being Offered at a Lower Price

Why Reg’ Activ Probiotics?

Reg´Activ Probiotic products contain the revolutionary probiotic strain Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 that is able to produce the super antioxidant, Glutathione. 

Why is Glutathione so important?

  • Glutathione is critical for antioxidant defense and detox
  • It reduces free radicals

We all make glutathione naturally but it’s often depleted because of:

  • environmental stress
  • poor diet
  • drinking alcohol
  • taking prescription drugs
  • taking pain relievers like acetaminophen

Even in healthy individuals, the body begins to produce less glutathione as it ages.
After the age of 20 glutathione declines at about 1% per year.

This ME-3 strain is a relatively ‘newly discovered’ probiotic strain. It is now patented for it’s special ability to boost glutathione levels. It is a multi-tasking probiotic strain.

The glutathione-boosting aspect is not typical of most probiotics.

ME-3 raises glutathione naturally and intracellulary.

Reg Activ Probiotics

There are 3 different formulas to choose from:

  • One is for heart health,
  • another for immune function and
  • another for liver and detoxification.

Researchers have linked glutathione deficiency to a range of disorders, including liver disease, cystic fibrosis,Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

More about the Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3 Strain:

In 1995, award-winning microbiologist Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists at the University of Tartu, Estonia isolated a unique probiotic strain.

They found this strain present in the children of Estonia who had the most balanced immune systems. Since this discovery Dr. Mikelsaar has been dedicated to researching the benefits of this strain further. 

The most important of all her findings was that this strain, Lactobacillus Fermentum ME-3, was able to help our bodies naturally produce glutathione. 

In continued studies by Mikelsaar, a number of other benefits have been found:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Acts as an antimicrobial agent
  • Supresses pathogenic food contaminants such as Salmonella, Shigella and Staphylococcus
  • Reduces urinary tract infections caused by E. coli.
  • Increases antioxidative activity of the blood
  • Defends against oxidative stress

There are 3 different Reg’Activ formulas. The common denominator is that they all contain the powerful probiotic strain called Lactobacillus fermentum ME – 3. This strain has been studied for well over 20 years. You may ask, ‘What is so special about Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3’?

What’s so special about about RegActiv Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 ?

The answer is simple. This probiotic strain has been shown through extensive research, to produce glutathione naturally in the body. Glutathione is well known for its antioxidant characteristics. It also facilitates detoxification as well as immune system-supporting activities.

Glutathione is actually known as the body’s “Master Antioxidant.” Why? Because it is used by every cell in the human body. Yes, it is absolutely essential for maintaining excellent immune health. Our immune system cells are interacting in oxidative process all the time. These cells can quickly use up glutathione. This means that there’s a constant need to be replenishing glutathione for maintaining basic cellular activity.

Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists are the award-winning microbiologists who are responsible for isolating Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 in 1995. This L. Fermentum ME-3 is a patented lactic acid bacteria strain used under an exclusive license agreement with the University of Tartu, Estonia.

Each of the 3 different Reg’Activ formulas have added ingredients to focus on particular body functions:

(1) RegActiv – Immune & Vitality Health

RegActiv Immune & VitalityThis formula includes Lactobacillus brevis KP08 which is a Japanese probiotic strain that supports normal interferon, INF a, production.

Together, they provide amazingly effective immune system support, assisting with both the health of immune system cells and also in maintaining balanced activity.

Then there are other nutrients added to this formulas based on their immune system support.
They are:

  • L-Carnitine tartrate – to support energy at a healthy levels*
  • Vitamin B – these essential vitamins also support healthy energy and metabolism*
  • Vitamin C – a vitamin that is renown support for a healthy immune system*

Other ingredients in Immune & Vitality Formula include:
maltodextrin (It can be noted that it is non-GMO and is an easily digestible carbohydrate which is usually made from rice or corn starch. Because it is made from real foods, it is not regarded as a foreign chemical. It is commonly used for probiotic formulas because it adds to stabilizing the good bacteria), hypromellose and magnesium stearate.

Immune and Vitality Formula Directions of Use:

Take 2 capsules daily, 30 minutes before a meal or as directed by a health care professional. For best effects, it is suggested to maintain a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

(2) RegActiv Detox &  Liver Health

RegActiv Detox & Liver HealthThis formula focuses on maintaining a healthy liver that is vitally important in today’s times. This is because of all the toxic chemicals we are bombarded by. They are added to our foods, our drinking water, and sprayed on our food. They play havoc with our health. This formula helps to reduce the effects of this uncontrollable invasion.

Glutathione produced by L fermentum ME-3 is extremely important for hepatic function. There is more glutathione in the liver than any other organ in the body because liver cells rely on antioxidant glutathione during normal detoxification process.

You see, the liver is the entry way to the body and in this chemical age it’s detoxification systems are easily overworked. Over time this could cause damage to our liver. Through studies, scientists and researchers have found thousands of chemicals that are added to food and hundreds found in our drinking water. Plants are sprayed with toxic chemicals. Animals are injected with potent hormones and antibiotics. A large amount of our food is genetically engineered. Our food is cooked, fried, sometimes frozen and also refined. All these result in delicate vitamins and minerals being destroyed. These destroyed vitamins are very necessary for optimal liver function and detox.

Reg´Activ Detox & Liver Health™ adds other well known liver health nutrients and complement Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3’s activities.

These helpful liver nutrients are:

  • L-selenothionine (easy-to-digest selenium) – Promotes healthy levels of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which supports liver tissue health

  • Milk thistle extract also known as Silymarin – Silymarin is known to support production of super antioxidant enzymes in the liver

Detox & Liver Health Directions for Use:

Take 2 capsules daily, 30 minutes before a meal or as directed by a health care professional.
