Glutathione is called the master antioxidant because it can regenerate itself in the liver after each fill-up of free radicals and go back to work. Free radicals are often the byproduct of normal cellular metabolic oxidation and toxic overload, leading to autoimmune diseases, several cancers or heart attacks.
Antioxidants come to the rescue and usher out those free radicals, heavy metals and toxins if there are enough of them. The liver’s ability to generate or regenerate glutathione and enable cells to contain glutathione within them as intracellular glutathione is largely why it’s called the master antioxidant.
Until recently, the widely held belief has been that normal oral supplementation won’t help raise glutathione levels because oral glutathione won’t get past the stomach acids and into the small intestines to be absorbed into the blood. But a study explained in the next section indicates otherwise. (more…)

For the health of the nation to change, individuals must stop relying on pharmacies and must instead start creating their own farmacies at home.
While pharmacies carry drugs that cover up symptoms, a personal farmacy provides beneficial herbs, spices, roots, vegetables, nuts, fruits, barks, clays, seaweeds and berries that come straight from a garden or are wild crafted from nature. These natural substances don’t block normal bodily functions like pharma drugs do, but instead work in a purifying way at the cellular level without bringing all the harmful side effects. These natural substances are curative in a way that works with the body’s natural processes. More importantly, using natural substances is a great prevention strategy. (more…)
Why invest in expensive electrical air purifiers when you could purchase a few types of houseplants to clean and filter the air naturally and inexpensively?
Much of the research on these beneficial houseplants has been done by NASA scientists researching ways to create suitable space station habitats. All indoors plants (flowering or not) are able to purify indoor air to some degree through their normal photosynthesis processes. But some were found to be more beneficial than others in removing harmful household toxins, even removing 90% of chemicals in the air in only twenty-four hours!
The three main household toxins of concern are:
These carcinogenic chemicals are used in the manufacturing of synthetic substances and materials and are off-gased from new materials for some time (up to several years, depending on the material of product in question). Benzene can also be emitted from gas ranges during use, making some types of houseplants below great for use in the kitchen. (more…)
As someone who is conscious about their health, you probably already know about chlorella. Chlorella is one of the most powerful super foods on the planet. Grown in pristine freshwater ponds on Japanese coral islands, chlorella is a microalgae. It grows extremely fast — multiplying four times every 20 hours, due to a compound called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). This extract — unique to chlorella — contains amino acids, vitamins, sugars and nucleic acids, and is believed to be at the core of some of chlorella’s health benefits. Although microscopic, chlorella is a source of complete protein, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Its vibrant green color is from the pigment chlorophyll (more…)
Milk thistle, or Silybum marianum, has been used by healers around the world for more than 2,000 years to support prostate, liver, and gallbladder health. Its held in high regard especially for remedying toxin-related damage and other conditions that produce redness and swelling.  The incredible success of improving liver function has (finally) captured the attention of modern researchers.

Atomic iodine, also known as atomidine and nascent iodine, is considered the safest and most effective iodine supplement available. Unlike elemental (or molecular) iodine which is toxic, this form of iodine holds its atomic structure making it safe for consumption and topical use. This atomic structure is the same form of iodine the body creates from dietary iodine, making atomic iodine a highly bioavailable supplement.
