Dirty Genes™ - GST/GPX Support

Your GST/GPX genes are known as the ‘Detox Dilemmas.’ The role of your GST and GPX genes are to support elimination of harmful compounds from your body such as arsenic, chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, and formaldehyde by using glutathione. If your GST/GPX genes are dirty, then your glutathione levels are likely low. This leads to a steady accumulation of harmful compounds versus eliminating them. As this accumulation progresses, one may experience sensitivity to smells, intolerance to chlorine, deodorants, persistent fatigue, brain fog, early graying of hair, and erratic moods.

To help support dirty GST/GPX genes, one must use air purifiers, water filters, buy organic foods or avoid non-organic foods especially the ‘Dirty Dozen’, sauna, hot yoga, drive with windows closed during traffic, and limit exercising in polluted areas.

If the GST/GPX genes are dirty, then one is likely low in glutathione. By supplementing with glutathione, one may start cleaning up their dirty GST/GPX genes. When first getting started cleaning these genes, it’s best to use low amounts of Optimal Liposomal Glutathione Plus. This formulation has the cofactors needed to support glutathione utilization, glutathione recycling, and sulfite removal. In order to use glutathione, you need sufficient selenium. In order to recycle glutathione, you need sufficient riboflavin. In order to eliminate sulfites caused by higher sulfur levels, you need sufficient molybdenum. Optimal Liposomal Glutathione Plus has all of these plus glutathione in an absorbable, liposomal form.*

You can make Optimal Liposomal Glutathione and Optimal Liposomal Glutathione Plus taste better by mixing with Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C

If one is intolerant to all glutathione, then it’s best to not use. There are reasons why you may be intolerant to glutathione. Maintaining good hydration is very important, so consider Optimal Electrolyte prior to using glutathione. Since glutathione is a sulfur-containing compound, Molybdenum may be needed, especially if one has sulfur-smelling gas, armpits, breath, or feels worse after consuming sulfur-containing supplements or foods.*

If glutathione is an antioxidant you cannot tolerate, you need other options to consider. PQQ and SOD are two types of antioxidants which may be used instead of glutathione. Consider using our PQQ Lozenge or SOD capsules for antioxidant support.*

Since glutathione is not just an antioxidant but also helps detoxification of various compounds such as chlorine, formaldehyde and arsenic, then you need additional support in this area. Consider using Liver Nutrients, Calcium-D-Glucarate or Optimal Detox for detoxification support.*

Reading Dirty Genes and following the Soak and Scrub Method is the most thorough way to clean your dirty GST/GPX genes. Following the recipes found in Dirty Genes to support your GST/GPX genes is very effective. Supplements are simply a way to Spot Clean your GST/GPX genes.
