1. What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a very small molecule that is produced by the body and found in every cell. It is an antioxidant, an immune system booster, and a detoxifier.It helps the body repair damaged cells caused by stress, pollution, radiation, infection, drugs, poor diet, aging, injury, trauma, and burns. It neutralizes free radicals, which build up in cells and cause damage.

Because glutathione exists within the cells, it is in a prime position to neutralize free radicals. It also has potentially widespread health benefits because it can be found in all types of cells, including the cells of the immune system, whose job is to fight disease.

Though Glutathione is naturally present in many foods particularly fresh fruits and vegetables and freshly prepared meats poor diets deplete it.

Skin whitening is the side effect of glutathione.

Glutathione should be taken with vitamin C to protect it from oxidative damage, making glutathione effective.

2. What is L Carnitine?

L Carnitine helps in the consumption and disposal of fat in the body because it is responsible for the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol ( cystosol is the internal fluid of the cell, and where a portion of cell metabolism occurs) into the mitochondria (is a membrane-enclosed organelle (organelle is a specialized subunit within a cell that has a specific function, and is separately enclosed within its own lipid membrane)found in most eukaryotic cells (organisms whose cells are organized into complex structures enclosed within membranes) It is very similar to the nonessential amino acid carnitine. It is helpful in metabolizing food into energy, such as helping metabolize food into energy. It is synthesized in the body from the amino acids called lysine and methionine. It is also found in avocados, dairy products, and red meats (especially lamb and beef).

3. What does it do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?

L-carnitine transfers long-chain fatty acids, such as triglycerides into the mitochondria (a cell's energy powerhouse), where they may be oxidized to produce energy. L-carnitine is a very popular supplement that promotes growth and development. It is also used for fat-burning, increasing energy, and improving resistance to muscle fatigue. L-carnitine also helps to build muscle. It is also great in dieting, as it reduces feelings of hunger and weakness.

Studies have been conducted on L-carnitine as early as 1937. Those studies yielded positive results suggesting that the body's cardiovascular system can greatly benefit from its intake. There are also a variety of published studies that suggest L-carnitine is useful in increasing the heart's output and improving it's function, as well as stimulating the heart's energy supply and supporting cardiac performance.

4. Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

Anyone deficient in protein or amino acids in their diet could benefit from L-carnitine supplementation. Premature infants, vegan vegetarians, children, and breast-feeding women are likely to be deficient.

Although deficiencies are rare, muscle fatigue, cramps, or premature aging are all signs of possible deficiency.

5. What is Chromium Picolinate?

Chromium is an essential mineral to good health. It is found naturally in very small amounts in brewer's yeast, black pepper, liver and lobster. Chromium Picolinate is a highly bioactive form of Chromium developed and patented by the United States Department of Agriculture. Chromium Picolinate has been shown to cross biological membranes and to be assimilated by the body far more readily than other inorganic forms of Chromium.

Chromium Piccolinate is the most positively researched safe nutrient in the world today. So impressive are the results, many medical researchers have dubbed it, "the nutrient of the nineties.” It is important in building the body muscle, reducing body fat, losing weight without dieting, lowering elevated cholesterol levels and regulating blood sugar in diabetics. Chromium is an essential trace element found in foods such as broccoli, cheese and brewer's yeast. It helps the body metabolize blood sugars, as well as assists in the processing of fats and proteins. Chromium is both an appetite suppressant and a "super metabolizer". Increase in chromium intake increases metabolic rate resulting to more burned calorie and increased energy. In fact, Chromium Picolinate is a leading seller in Asia where it is used as an energy supplement.

6. Why is Chromium Picolinate important to health?

Chromium is so critical to good health due to its role in supporting the insulin sensitivity of the body's tissues. Insulin is vital for the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. When Chromium levels drop, insulin resistance occurs and a wide range of negative health consequences such as obesity/poor physique, heart diseases, hypertension are likely to ensue.

7. Green Tea

Green tea lowers elevated cholesterol, boosts the immune system, has a bio defense function preventing cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes .It promotes physical rhythm control and and has an aging suppressing function. It is also effective in losing weight.

Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

8. What makes green tea so special?

The green tea leaves is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke.

To date, the only negative side effect reported from drinking green tea is insomnia due to the fact that it contains caffeine. However, green tea contains less caffeine than coffee: there are approximately thirty to sixty mg. of caffeine in six - eight ounces of tea, compared to over one-hundred mg. in eight ounces of coffee.
