There is a steady flow of scientific papers  testing individual ingredients of the Original Glutathione Formula in regard to so many aspects of human health. Here are just a few examples:

Glutathione Science: (these are the statements of scientists, which may or may not be accepted by the FDA). We disavow them as product claims, and only show them as starting points for further investigation):

The importance of Glutathione cannot be overstated. It protects the mitochondria from free radicals and boosts immune function. - Patricia A.L. Kongshavn, Ph.D

Healthy people benefit from elevated glutathione levels through an enhanced ability to fight off toxins, infectious diseases, pre-cancerous cells and the aging process itself. - Glutathione: Your Body’s Most Powerful Protector byJimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP

Lymphocytes, the white blood cells that are vital for your immune system, depend on glutathione for their proper function and replication. IMMUNOLOGY 61:503-508, 1987.

Glutathione plays a role in eliminating many carcinogens and also maintains an optimized immune function, providing stronger anti-tumour defenses. Cancer Letters 57: 91-94, 1991.

Diabetics are prone to infections and circulatory problems leading to heart disease, kidney failure and blindness. Glutathione protects against the
complications of diabetes
. Clinical Science 91: 575-582, 1996.

Glutathione protects the body from the inflammation of gastritis, stomach ulcers, pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Gut 42: 485-492, 1998.

Antioxidants are well documented and known to possess vital roles in health maintenance and disease prevention. Glutathione is your cell’s own major antioxidant. Maintaining elevated glutathione levels aids the body’s natural antioxidant function. Biochemical Pharmacology 47: 2113-23,

Raised glutathione levels help increase strength and endurance. Those interested in physical fitness can benefit from a definite athletic edge. Journal of Applied Physiology 87: 1381- 85, 1999

Glutathione: Your Body’s Most Powerful

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is derived from the amino acid  L-cysteine and is an essential component of the antioxidant glutathione  (GSH). Because NAC supplementation increases cellular GSH, it is  frequently used in medicinal therapies for chronic respiratory  bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cancers of  the respiratory tract. Additionally, NAC has also been shown to reduce  the progression of diseases caused by cellular oxidative stress.

In the research publication: "Attenuation of influenza-like symptomatology and improvement of cell-mediated  immunity with long-term N-acetylcysteine treatment" a study of 262  subjects was conducted at multiple Italian health centers. The authors  concluded that long-term NAC supplementation yielded little to no side  effects and was well tolerated by the study participates. The symptoms  of the H1N1 influenza virus were reduced in patients receiving NAC  treatment, while the group administered placebo exhibited only a small  reduction in their symptoms.

Summary: The study suggests that immune-compromised  patients (such as those with HIV, cancer or other chronic illness such  as diabetes) and the elderly would benefit from NAC supplementation  through a reduction in the severity of influenza symptoms. While  N-acetylcysteine did not prevent influenza infection, it clearly reduced the duration of influenza-like illness and the severity of associated  symptoms.

Cordyceps is a mushroom that has been used in  traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, with the first  recorded medicinal use reported in a Tibetan medical text in the 15th  century. Modern researchers have reported anti-cancerous and  anti-oxidant properties and some evidence of a benefit for treating  insulin resistance.

The research study: "Anti-influenza effect of Cordyceps militaris through immunomodulation in a DBA/2 mouse model" reported the evaluation of mice for a seven day period. The mice were  provided with Cordyceps extract, red ginseng extract or water alone as a treatment for H1N1 influenza virus infection. The mice receiving  Cordyceps extract exhibited reduced mortality and a stable body weight.  The mice also were observed to have an increased number of NK (natural  killer) cells, indicating a more robust immune response.

Summary: The findings of this study indicate that  Cordyceps enhanced immunity at the cellular level and reduced the  severity of influenza-associated symptoms.

Quercetin is a flavonoid derived from plants and is  found in high concentrations in foods such as green tea, berries, radish leaves, dill, kale and other plant sources. It has been used for its  medicinal properties since 1857 in the treatment of heart disease, high  cholesterol, and inflammatory diseases including asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), gout and diabetes.

In the report "Effect of quercetin supplementation on lung antioxidants after experimental influenza virus infection" the impact of quercetin supplementation was measured in mice. The H3N2  influenza virus created a reduction in glutathione, superoxide dismutase (which protects the cell from oxidation), vitamin E, as well as  catalase. Both glutathione and catalase are essential to protecting  cells from oxidative damage, and immunity. The experimental group that  received an oral dosage of quercetin were noted to have an increase in  the pulmonary concentrations of catalase, glutathione and superoxide  dismutase.

Summary: These findings suggest that quercetin  supplementation reduces influenza-associated damage to the lung caused  by oxidative stress.
