[00:00:56] Hey everyone. It's Natalie. So glad to have you joining today for the podcast. I'm a big natural health fan and it is my goal here on this podcast to help you feel better, something that I want to talk about today. Maybe you've not heard this big, long word, but it is essential. To our physical health it's glutathione.
[00:01:17] It helps detox our systems and it helps us prevent disease. I'm talking today with Dr. Nyan Patel. He is the author of a book called the glutathione revolution. Where did I first hear of glutathione? When a couple of years ago I had a doctor who recommended an I V drip when I wasn't feeling well, or before we traveled internationally, he told me that glutathione was one of the elements of this Ivy, drip. That's when I first heard it. And I knew that it must be pretty big Dr. Patel is going to tell us today exactly what glutathione is, what happens when the levels of glutathione in your body are low, what diseases it actually wards off and how you can naturally increase the amount of this super antioxidant. In your cells. He is a wealth of very practical information.
[00:02:08] I know you're going to learn so much, and I also want to tell you that you can go to the show notes today because I put a link in there to a product that Dr. Patel mentioned, which I have just started in the last couple of weeks. And I'm having my family take it as well. And I am really excited about it.

On to more about Bluetooth glutathione with Dr. Nyan Patel.
[00:02:44] Dr. Patel joining me now. And I have been hearing this word, of course, as a health reporter I'm familiar with, but the magic of glutathione.
[00:02:54] Natalie: So let's start with that because I know you wrote a whole book about it and then we'll go into some other topics surrounding it. Tell us what Bluetooth is.
[00:03:02] Dr. Patel: I, when I get this questions all the time, first thing I put on my is my pharmacist cap, right?
[00:03:07] What is gluten chemically? It's a protein, it's combination of three amino acid, glutamine glycine, and cystine combines in a, in a, in a sequence, makes it a protein. It's a simplest form of protein, but the unique part of leotard is it's the most abundantly produced in human body. So chemically it's a protein, but then we don't look at chemical structure, right.
[00:03:31] We all, as they say, what do you do? Well, um, I'm a male, I'm a female. We don't say that. We always go back and say, well, I'm a pharmacist, I'm a doctor. I'm a diploma reporter. I'm a Telecaster. So we, uh, identity is based on what we do. So glutes identity is based on what it does is it came from as the most powerful Antioch.
[00:03:54] It's just one of the role it does in the body is to reduce oxidative stress in the body. And it's called the mother of all antioxidants. And so what it is and what it does is two different things, but they're, there you are now. Now we don't want to go to Dallas.
[00:04:11] Natalie: Okay. So now, now we've kicked out a little bit.
[00:04:13] We know that. ow do we get. And, is it something you as a pharmacist you've known this forever, but is it something that we're just more aware of today? and why more so in the last few years, at least for the general public.
[00:04:29] Dr. Patel: So it's been around. Yeah, something that'd be unknown known for long periods of time.
[00:04:35] it's widely researched product or name on Google or any of favorite search engines today. and the reason we are talking about this today, even though we have known this for a hundred years, Is because it is something that we would like to increase it, our body abundantly, but more importantly, we want to make sure that there are products available to help us do that.
[00:05:00] And so for all this years, we I've been working on this thing. Um, and I have about 20 books right on my side, over here. That's all the books that are published with gluten and I, I have sought every one of them. Nobody talks about how does it help your patients? How does it help general public, what to do with it?
[00:05:18] I have some literature on, on chemical structures and what it does in your body and all the pharmacokinetics of this product and it a molecule in your body. But it doesn't dive in. is it going to help me with my wrinkles? Is it going to help me with my stress? Is it going to help me with my, feeling, uh, with, with full of energy.
[00:05:38] So that has just come around in the last, I would say 15 to 20 years, and thanks to my book. It's now it's reaching thousands of people on a daily basis to the message is out there.
[00:05:50] Natalie: Going to link your book by the way, in the show notes, the glutathione revolution, but let's go into some of those specifics.
[00:05:57] I think in my analysis now as a podcast or I run my own website, I teach at a high school. I came out of the news business where I feel like we are at the highest level of stress in my 50 years that we've ever experienced. does glutathione help us manage our stress level? Does it, does it help within the body and that anxiety and stress?
[00:06:21] Dr. Patel: So you're right. I mean, last two years have been extremely difficult for a lot of people, especially, with dealing with mental stress. And The word unprecedented has been overused. I believe so, but if, if it needs to be used this time, I think it justifies that part because we are seeing numbers that we have never seen before.
[00:06:45] I still want a full fledged pharmacy. So we see prescriptions every single day. And I see mental disorders at a, at a peak at this time. So. While blur time may not be able to reduce the mental stress spout. What mental stress does to a body. It produces a lot of free radicals.
[00:07:06] Dr. Patel: There's a lot of chemical processes that are happening in the pituitary in your brain.
[00:07:10] There is producing all this free radicals. There's a byproduct of any chemical reactions, those chemical reactor byproducts to. Sequestered and removed from the body. And so the glue is the only product our body produces to basically take all this supercharged electrons in our body, kind of neutralize them and get it up there, even though it may not be helpful with the stress reduction per se, but the stress.
[00:07:38] Causing the secondary effects to a body is reduced completely. So even though we may not be able to remove your mental stress, we are able to keep your body. Uh, safe and functioning and as well as full of energy. So you can get by doing all the daily work and hopefully one day we'll figure out a way to how to reduce mental stress now.
[00:07:59] Natalie: Yeah. But part of mental stress is physically not feeling well. I mean, I know for myself, like I might have a little bit of mental stress, but then when you feel sick, it just adds. And then all of a sudden you're in this cycle and the mental stress is even worse because physically you don't feel.
[00:08:17] Dr. Patel: That's right. I mean, if you, if you want to dive in deep into stresses, there are physical stresses that are chemical stress stressors that are emotional stress and all those stressors. I mean, some of the stress you can't get away from it, for example, sun. I mean, if you wake up in the morning, if you walk outside, you know, you're going to be exposed to sunlight and that's producing, uh, uh, stressors from outside that your body has to, has to deal with it.
[00:08:42] Chemicals by the time you leave your house every morning, you're exposed to anywhere from 50 to 70 different chemicals that your body has to somehow get rid of it. All the stressors that we, take it for granted in his modern day, society is a body has to deal with it. And, and it deals with it by producing blue with ion.
[00:09:04] But as you know, as we age. I was stresses, never reduces. In fact, starting the age of 21, we decide to knowingly consume alcohol, which is, we know is a solvent and it adds more stress to a body. so we do things knowingly. That's not good for our body, but we still do that because we think the body's going to utilize every single thing that.
[00:09:25] And eat and drink. Uh, but as we age the body kind of say, well, your stress is not reducing. My ability to produce gluten is producing. And so now they come to the point where I said, what do I do now? How do I restore my levels? Again? That's always been a millionaire.
[00:09:45] Natalie: So I'm hearing you say our body produces glutathione, but
[00:09:49] Natalie: what can we do to get more glutathione?
[00:09:52] Is there a supplement?
[00:09:54] Dr. Patel: So, I mean, a body's well-equipped to, it's a very simple protein chain. It's a three, I mean, acid protein chain, right? So very simple molecule, the body can produce this. Enough of it on a daily basis, we don't have to take anything supplementation wise, other than the three amino acids, the glycine, the glutamine, and the CS team.
[00:10:14] The hardest one, the hardest one to get in your body is cystine. So there are foods like whey proteins and asparagus and avocados that you get all those different amino acids for your body to produce its own blue fire. So if you're young, when I say young, Under the age of 30 ish is what I'm saying. I can put a number to anymore because the negatives are flushing.
