It is possible that we, as human beings, will be ingesting toxins through the food chain at some stage or other in our lives. Pollutants are in food and/or water supply whether this is because of pesticide herbicide, toxic metal pollutant or other contaminant. If you are drinking chlorinated water, you're already consuming toxins on a regular basis. Glutathione's ability to improve your longevity and overall health comes from its role in detoxifying various chemicals, thereby preventing them from damaging your cellular DNA. When you increase glutathione, you in turn increase GST enzymes.
Glutathione levels can be raised by eating brussel sprouts, cauliflower, brocolli (flowers not the stem), cabbage, kale, bok choy, cress, mustard, horseradish, turnips, rutabags and kohlrabi.
Researchers in Netherlands found that GST enzyme levels could be increased as much as 30% simply by eating about 10oz of brussel sprouts over a seven day period. It is also one of the least expensive anti-aging and anti-cancer programs available. (Carcinogenesis 95;16(9):2125-8). In addition both garlic and ripe seeds of the green bean work synergistically with the GST enzymes.
