Reduced Glutathione and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Mar 12, 2008
In studies conduct there have been evidence to say that reduced glutathione or gsh as it is also known and the relationship to any inflammatory diseases and inflammatory bowel disease or IBD definitely has inflammation. So can replenishing essential gsh help with IBD?

Lets first start by letting you know what glutathione or GSH is. It is the master antioxidant that is produced in your body at cellular level. It is your bodies best defense against fighting inflammation that is prevalent in many diseases.

The human digestive system is made up by a set of organs (including the stomach, small and large intestines, rectum, and others) that change the foods we consume into nutrients and absorb these nutrients into the bloodstream to feed our bodies cells. We hardly if ever notice its workings unlit something goes wrong, as in the case of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

What is Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Inflammatory bowel disease can occur at any age but most commonly occurs between the ages of 15 and 35. Environmental issues as well as diet and possibly genetics may play a role in devolving IBD. Studies have also shown a reduced glutathione in your bodies cells also to be a factor.

Inflammatory bowel disease or IBD is a generic term that covers two intestinal disorders:

Ulcerative colitis or UC
Crohn's disease or CD

What is Crohn's disease? It is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease of the intestines that can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. It most commonly occurs in the ileum (the area where the small and large intestine meet). It mainly causes ulcerations (a break in the lining) of the large and small intestines.

What causes IBD is still largely unknown. It can be traced to a problem in the bodies immune response system. You bodies immune system usually helps protect itself from harmful substances but in patients with any form of inflammatory bowel disease this is not the case. A person with IBD can not distinguish between the good substance or the foreign invaders so result is an overactive immune system response that leads to chronic inflammation. This is what an autoimmune disorder is.

What is Ulcerative colitis? It is chronic inflammation of the large intestine (colon) and part of the digestive system where your waste material is stored. The rectum is connected to the colon adjacent to the anus. Patients with ulcerative colitis have inflammation in the inner lining of the colon. Symptoms of ulcerative colitis are abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding.

With having a reduced glutathione antioxidant level , your defense system may be severely compromised and rendering it more at risk to oxidative tissue damage, hindering recovery from Inflammatory bowel disease as well as any inflammatory diseases. So by replenishing essential gsh you then increase your own bodies natural defence against inflammation.

Usable glutathione can only be gotten intravenously as a glutathione supplement can not be broken down small enough to be absorbed by the cells.
