Glutathione and Mental Neurological Disorders
The many Mental Neurological Disorders and Diseases have an interesting relationship with glutathione. When the disease or disorder is present, glutathione (GSH) and other elements are below normal levels. Some of these others are either synergistic with glutathione or they are cofactors of glutathione.
Note To further complicate mental neurological disorder challenges, our psychological function plays a role in our health and wellness or absence of health. A field of science called Psychoneurobiology studies this.
The Psychoneurobiology Nutricutical Solution
The exciting news is that many mental neurological disorders can be enhanced with diet and especially nutricuticals. Some neurological diseases, disorders or conditions can benefit from increased glutathione and or other essential vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

Sleep, Glutathione, and Tart Cherries
Sleeplessness affects up to 90 percent of people eventually. It is a leading mental neurological disorder facing man. Tart cherries in our diet can help improve our sleep. They have an important chemical that helps our brain take a break better than supplements or drugs.

Depression and Glutathione
Stress and Glutathione
Schizophrenia and Glutathione
Studies show a direct correlation with schizophrenia and decreased glutathione levels. The good news is that glutathione may slow down the progression and even lessen the side effects of the drugs given to treat this disease.
More importantly, do you know what those suffering with it go through? Do you know the side effects they have to endure as a result of the meds used to combat the disease.
Parkinson’s and Glutathione
Statistically one in 100 will be afflicted with this debilitating disease.Onset can happen as early as age 40. It affects most around retirement age. Studies show that elevating glutathione early can stop the progression and even reverse some of the symptoms.
Alzheimer’s Disease and Glutathione
Of the various types of dementia afflicting the elderly, Alzheimer’s is the most common. It is the fourth leading cause of death after heart disease, cancer and stroke.
Glutathione can help prevent and or lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in a few ways. GSH works as a detoxifier.
A blood protein that interacts with heavy metals has long been suspect as being related to Alzheimer’s disease. Studies that demonstrating benefits from Ginko would seem to indicate the elimination of plaque buildup would relieve the symptoms.
Antioxidant therapy has been shown to be beneficial. The effect of androgynous (external source) antioxidants are enhanced by improved glutathione levels.

Stages of Alzheimers Disease
Alzheimers Scams. Be warned, if it is too good to be true, it probably is. Even the good results found in the studies on boosting GSH levels does not mean there is a cure. Once the damage is done, it is done. The best care involves improving the symptoms and increase the potential quality of life.
How to Prevent Alzheimers looks at some of the studies. You will have to connect the dots. There are some interesting dots to connect.
More How to Prevent Alzheimers looks at some dietary changes you can make to avoid this life and memory altering disease.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis-Symptoms (ALS) This looks primarily at low CG syndrome and emerging science on treating ALS by elevating glutathione.
Multiple Sclerosis and Glutathione
A degenerative disease of the nervous system, it hits most in the prime of their life. The neurological dysfunctions can be as mild as loss of concentration, weakness, vision blurring or stiffness. It can come in episodes and then go into remission.
As the disease progresses disability follows.
Studies show a relationship with the levels of glutathione and the progression of the disease. The worse the progression the less glutathione present.
Low selenium levels are associated with MS. Selenium is an essential co-factor in the formation of glutathione. By supplementing the antioxidants selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E the study found a five fold increase in glutathione.
Other types of mental neurological disorders include...
ADHD What if there were a better way to treat it. First look at the background of ADHD. What if it was not psycho-neuro but rather simply biological resulting in something neurological?
Chronic Fatigue is included here because the lack of energy and need for rest are neurological in nature.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Glutathione
MCS is included here because it results in neurological shutdown by those affected. I have personally seen those affected with this pass out when someone laden with perfume passed by. There is hope for those affected by MCS simply by increasing glutathione levels.
Huntingtons and JNK3
It strikes one in 10,000. Average onset is age 30 to 50. Death occurs 10 to 20 years later. There are no effective medical treatments. The good news, studies point to a glutathione connection.
Please return as we take an in-depth look at each of these mental neurological disorders. More importantly, how it is possible to build glutathione levels with nutrition.
What is Psychoneurobiology?
The Science of Psychoneurobiology has identified the interconnection between thoughts, emotions, biological functioning. It has been found that we can manage these with a combination of psychiatric help, nutrition, activity and medication.
The field of Psychoneurobiology deals with how our emotions affect our well being. How stress or anxiety can make us ill or how our emotions can affect the immune system, the endocrine system and the neurological system.
A study in 1989 demonstrated that women with breast cancer attending a weekly support group had a better survival rate than those who were not part of a group. The women in the supported group survived 36 months and the ones without only 18 months. The ones in the supported group were provided stress management training.
In another example, studies have demonstrated that depression can affect us in three systems - the immune, the endocrine and the neurological systems. Remember, stress is how you interpret a situation, not the situation itself. The doorbell ringing doesn't make you ill, your anticipation of who might be on the other side of the door is what causes the feeling.
