I decided to try the “Glutathione Force” Supplement from the upgradedself.com website. It’s not cheap – $59 USD for 40 servings. But I’m still having some cognitive issues and I’m starting a new position at work soon, so I figured it couldn’t hurt.
WOW. This probably isn’t for everyone, but if you have severe oxidative damage or demyelination you MUST try this!!!! I’m still recovering from celiac damage. When I play the “Fit Brains” app on my smartphone, in the past few months my scores have plummeted from the 70-80% range to the 30-40% range although it has been improving. Lately it’s been 50 – 66%. In particular, my scores were lower in Focus, Memory and Problem Solving. Speed has remained in the 80% range, but the others dropped a lot.
Today I took my thyroid meds, waited 30 minutes, took the glutathione (squeeze 1 ml into a spoon), waited 20 min, and had a protein shake (JJ Virgin brand – no egg or whey but does have sweetener).
Then about 30 minutes later, I tried Fit Brains. My score went up 8 points overall and in every “bad” category – focus, memory and problem solving. I have not been able to get “Focus” to move up for a month!!! I ordered more glutathione right away!! I know I’ll do just fine in my new position at work now. I already have more energy too, although this is my first day without Vitamin B12 (surgery prep) and I didn’t have any coffee! I think glutathione is a missing piece to my Celiac recovery puzzle.
Warning – this stuff tastes like used gym socks, you have to take it on an empty stomach and it’s a specific formulation – a pill probably wouldn’t work the same. I checked the Internet for possible side effects and it could negatively impact asthma. I felt a slight tightness right after I took it but then was ok – but I don’t really get asthma anymore.
Update: Mid-afternoon the energy dropped off, but otherwise doing great! My feet seem less numb also but that could be the AIP diet as well.
