Professional, over the road truck driving can take its toll on the human body. Stress, poor diet, low excercise and lack of rest often lead to health problems for truck drivers. Even local drivers experience the side effects of a professional driving career. Nothing is more important to the OTR driver than being able to start the day feeling rested and having the mental alertness that is needed for the safe operation of that 18 wheeler.
Thanks to years of research and over 60,000 published papers, people are now discovering the health benefits of a powerful antioxidant. Truckers can literally drive themselves to better health with
A very small molecule, Glutathione is produced by the body and found in every cell. It is the body's most important antioxidant because it is actually within the cell itself. Antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and E are important for good health because they inactivate the effects of free radicals, which build up in our cells and cause damage. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that have an unpaired number of electrons. Once formed, these radicals will start a chain reaction within the body and by interacting with cellular components such as our DNA or the cell membrane, can lead to health problems such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, cataracts and Aids...just to name a few. Antioxidants are needed in order to fight against these free radicals in order for us to maintain good health.
Since Glutathione exists within our cells, studies have shown that it is in the greatest position to neutralize these free radicals. Medical research has also shown that Glutathione is found in all types of cells, including the cells of our immune system. The powerful effect of Glutathione shows that it keeps our cells running smoothly. Research has also shown that Glutathione assists the liver in removing foreign chemicals from our bodies.
Years of research have shown that people suffering from serious illnesses, such as cancer and Aids, almost in every case, are depleted in Glutathione. Why their bodies are depleted of this self producing antioxidant is unclear, but the studies have shown that Glutathione is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health. Glutathione studies continue to show that it has the ability to fight nearly any disease, even those associated with the aging process.
The common aches and pains brought on by truck driving, along with fatigue, is a common sign of Glutathione depletion. Taking pure Glutathione will not help because the molecules are destroyed by the digestive system. Therefore, one must take the precursors of Glutathione, glutamine and acetyle cysteine, which will allow the body to produce Glutahtione naturally.
If I had not experienced it for myself, I never would have believed it. Now, professional truck drivers are discovering the importance of Glutathione. The trucking life can bring about stress, fatigue and all those little aches and pains commonly associated with the aging process. Glutathione is proving itself for its worth among the medical field. Remember that name, Glutathione...I'm sure you're going to be hearing more about it in the years to come.
