Raw goat whey is an excellent source of glutathione.
Glutathione is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. It may also be the most useful nutritional supplement, except that it doesn’t absorb well when taken as a pill or in a capsule.
The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that processed foods, pollution, prescription drugs, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete glutathione levels.
Low glutathione levels leave you susceptible to unrestrained cell damage from oxidation caused by free radicals, which is associated with chronic infections, cancer, and other chronic diseases. The good news is that we are learning more about glutathione all the time.
What Makes Glutathione So Special?

Dr. Taya Varteresian, a board certified psychiatrist working for the Veterans Administration, is the lead publisher in an article to appear in the journal Current Psychiatry Reports titled: “Natural products and supplements for geriatric depression and cognitive disorders: an evaluation of the research.”
According to the abstract, more and more elderly people are starting to use “Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) for late-life mood and cognitive disorders.” This obviously concerns psychiatrists, since their main remedies for “cognitive disorders” are powerful anti-psychotic drugs. They are not trained in natural supplements, therefore they apparently felt the need to educate other psychiatrists about the “side effects and indications for various natural products” so that psychiatrists could “protect their patients.” (more…)
Renowned medical doctor and neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock holds nothing back when it comes to telling it like it is, even when “it” goes against the prevailing schools of thought within his profession. And one of his latest Blaylock Wellness Reports is no exception, shining light on the very real dangers associated with fluoride exposure, especially when that fluoride interacts with other toxic chemicals commonly found in municipal water supplies.

When people talk to me about growing older, they tell me that one of their greatest fears is that they will become forgetful. They fear that memory loss is the first sign of Alzheimer’s disease and that it signals an inevitable mental and physical decline. For as long as I can remember, and for long before that, traditional medicine practitioners have told us that memory loss and confusion are simply normal parts of growing older. They implied that we should simply accept such changes in our mental capacities as an inevitable part of the aging process. (more…)

One of the most remarkable papers I have read in the psychiatric literature was about a 57 year old woman who was treated with months of both antipsychotic and antidepressant medications and given two rounds of electroconvulsive treatment before anyone bothered to check her vitamin B12 level.
Her symptoms were years in the making including tearfulness, anxiety, movement abnormalities, constipation, lethargy, and eventually perceptual disturbances (hearing her name called) and the ultimate in severe psychiatric pathology: catatonia. Despite her inpatient treatment, she remained suicidal, depressed, and lethargic. (more…)
A little-known but potent flavonoid called fisetin is difficult to obtain in sufficient amounts through diet alone. It’s found in fruits and vegetables from strawberries to cucumbers and stops memory loss that accompanies Alzheimer’s disease, scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies have discovered.
In experiments on mice that normally develop Alzheimer’s symptoms less than a year after birth, a daily dose of the compound fisetin — -prevented the progressive memory and learning impairments. The drug, however, did not alter the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain, accumulations of proteins which are commonly blamed for Alzheimer’s disease. The new finding suggests a way to treat Alzheimer’s symptoms independently of targeting amyloid plaques. The results were published in the journal Aging Cell. (more…)
