Increasing Glutathione Levels Naturally

Glutathione is the master antioxidant.

To increase your body's glutathione levels naturally, you can consume foods that are either rich in glutathione or aid in its production. Here's a list of such foods:

Sulfur-Rich Vegetables: Vegetables like garlic, onions, leeks, shallots, and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, etc.) are high in sulfur, which is necessary for glutathione production.

Protein-Rich Foods: Foods high in amino acids, especially cysteine, help boost glutathione. Examples include chicken, turkey, eggs, and yogurt. Plant-based sources like lentils, beans, nuts, and seeds are also beneficial.

Fruits and Vegetables Rich in Vitamins C and E: These vitamins help to regenerate glutathione and maintain its active form. Foods like oranges, strawberries, bell peppers, spinach, and almonds are good choices.

Selenium-Rich Foods: Selenium is a mineral that is a cofactor for the enzyme that helps recycle glutathione. Foods like Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, and fish (tuna, halibut, sardines) are excellent sources.

Herbs and Spices: Turmeric, cinnamon, and cardamom have compounds that can contribute to the maintenance of glutathione levels.

Avocado and Spinach: These are directly rich in glutathione.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Foods like flaxseed, chia seeds, and fish (especially salmon and mackerel) are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are believed to help increase glutathione levels.

Unprocessed Meats: Quality, unprocessed meats provide the amino acids necessary for glutathione synthesis.

You can also take a variety of glutathione supplements, like liposomal glutathione, selenium, and NAC.

It's also important to minimize factors that deplete glutathione, such as stress, pollution, and unhealthy lifestyle habits.
