Glutathione is a protective antioxidant that serves as mitochondria’s main line of defense against damage from oxidative stress, but sometimes your body doesn’t make enough of it. There are, however, ways to get your mitochondria to increase their production of antioxidants like glutathione:
- Eliminate crappy fats like canola oil, peanut oil, safflower, oil, and other bad fats as outlined in the Bulletproof Roadmap.
- Increase your polyphenols with an abundance of fresh herbs, darkly colored fruits and veggies, and a ton of colorful, anti-inflammatory spices like turmeric.
- Increase your natural production of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant. (I also supplement).
