A Life and Death Education
It was 1998 when I first started to manage the healthcare
of my ailing father who was stricken with Parkinson’s
disease. Over the next five years, I researched hundreds
of medical papers, traditional and alternative treatments,
and experimental options.
I was on a mission. I refused to just give up on his
well-being like so many already had.
If I wasn’t working or spending time with family, I was
immersed in study. I learned virtually everything known
at that time about treatment options for Parkinson’s.
I reached a point where I actually spoke the language of neurology.
In fact, one of my father’s doctors asked me where I had received my
medical degree. It was
at that point I knew I had reached a significant level of self-
education. I was even educating
his doctors about new areas of emerging medicine they had not yet
learned.
Along this journey, I became fascinated with an interesting substance
called Glutathione
(pronounced Gloo-tah-thigh-own). A neurologist in Florida was having
great success with
Glutathione injections for Parkinson’s patients. However, this was not
something you could
easily get a prescription for since it was not a standard treatment
and not very well known.
I’ll never forget the first injection my father received. We saw an
immediate improvement in
his ability to walk and perform basic motor skills. We were both
elated. Unfortunately, the
effects did not last long, and it soon became impractical to inject
the large volumes
necessary to see therapeutic effect. It was a valiant effort, but I
truly wish I knew then what
I know now.
The trials and tribulations I experienced during the five years I
helped my father taught me
several life-changing lessons. I realized that I had a gift and a
calling to help other people.
I had a duty to share the things I had learned so that people would
not suffer with things that
could be avoided or helped, if they only had more information.
My eagerness to study and learn both traditional and alternative
health sciences gave me a
unique perspective and balance. I was able to connect dots where
others would only see
half the picture.
It is my hope that you find a personal benefit in your own health and
happiness from this
informative article about Glutathione.
This article will help you understand what Glutathione is,
how it impacts the quality of your life, and how you can properly
nourish your body’s ability to produce Glutathione.

The Body at War
Every day, your body is fighting thousands of battles at the cellular
level just to keep you
alive. It’s the outcome of these battles that will ultimately decide
your quality of life and how
long you live.
The Enemy: Environmental toxins, pathogens, and free radicals.
By now, most people have heard the words “free radical” and
“antioxidant”. Free radicals are now understood to be the
underlying cause of most diseases including heart disease
and cancer. They are also known to be a primary cause of aging.
As your body goes through its normal process of creating energy
to fuel the cells, it creates free radicals as a byproduct. These
free radicals bounce around in your body desperately trying to
steal an electron from another cell. As this reaction occurs, the
electron donor cell can become damaged so severely that it
stops working efficiently, mutates, or completely dies.
This can lead to a dangerous cascade of cellular damage that can only
be stopped if your
body finds a way to quench the free radicals and break the cycle of
cell destruction.
Fortunately, your body has its own natural way to deal with these
enemies of health and
keep the entire system in a natural balance.
The Hero: Antioxidants. www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
Scientists have discovered that antioxidants counteract free radicals
and actually help to
prevent or stop disease.
Of all the antioxidants produced within your body, the most important
and abundant is
Glutathione. In fact, your life depends on Glutathione. Without it,
your liver would literally
be poisoned to death due to accumulating toxins, your cells would all
be destroyed from
oxidative stress, and your entire immune system would collapse from
little resistance to
bacteria, viruses, or cancers.
This incredibly powerful antioxidant isn’t just your primary defense
against the harmful effects
of free radicals, it also plays a crucial role in removing metabolic
wastes, and in finding and
eliminating toxins such as heavy metals and other environmental
poisons.
In other words, without sufficient levels of Glutathione in your body,
your cells start to lose
the battle for life, and ultimately the war is over much too quickly.
However, emerging science is showing us that if we can retain healthy
levels of Glutathione
throughout our life, then the battleground could become a field of
victory, abundant health,
and longer lifespan.

“Glutathione is a substance, the levels of which in our cells
are predictive of how long we will live.”
Earl Mindell, R.Ph., Ph.D
‘What You Should Know About the Super Antioxidant Miracle’
What is Glutathione:
We’re going to talk a little bio-chemistry science here, but I’ll keep
it as simple as possible.
First we need to understand that the building blocks for all living
plants and animals are amino acids. There are 20 amino acids that
support all life on the planet.
Glutathione is a tri-peptide (very small protein), which means it is
made from three specific amino acids: Glycine, Glutamic Acid, and
the all-important Cysteine. Glutathione is the general term used to
describe Glutathione Sulfhydryl (GSH).
Gluathione is produced within the cell from these three amino acids.
Of these three, Cysteine is the most important because its
availability is what determines how much Glutathione your body
can produce. Unfortunately, a quality source of naturally occurring
Cysteine is absent or deficient in many diets.
In fact, one scientist has proposed the idea that aging is largely due
to a simple deficiency of this one key amino acid – Cysteine. We will
discuss the best
sources for dietary Cysteine later in this article.
When the body experiences a deficiency of Cysteine, your cells cannot
produce adequate
levels of Glutathione. This causes a greater degree of cellular
oxidation, a decline in health,
accelerated aging, accumulation of toxins, and less protection from
disease.
However, when levels are maintained or elevated, Glutathione
wonderfully performs its
metabolic functions as follows:
• Improved immune response
• Elimination of toxins and carcinogens
• Antioxidant cell protection
• Protection against radiation
• DNA synthesis and repair
• Amino acid transport
• Enzyme activation and regulation
• Protein, Prostaglandin, and Leukotriene synthesis
©2010 Adrian Goad, All Rights Reserved 7
What Does All This Mean?
Dr. Earl Mindell refers to Glutathione as the “Triple Threat Amino
Acid”. To put it simply,
Glutathione performs three major roles in the body:
Antioxidant:
Glutathione is clearly understood to be the most powerful antioxidant
known to the human
body. Thus, it is commonly referred to as “The Master Antioxidant”.
In fact, the effectiveness of other well-known antioxidants like
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lipoic
Acid, and Selenium depends on the presence of Glutathione. All these
antioxidants work
synergistically together with Glutathione at center stage. Ultimately,
it is Glutathione that
neutralizes the free radicals and allows the other antioxidants to be
recycled back onto the
battleground.
Detoxifier:
The Glutathione enzyme system helps eliminate numerous toxins from the
body including
pollutants, heavy metals like mercury and lead, carcinogens, radiation
damage, and drug
metabolites.
Glutathione’s highest concentration is in the liver, the body’s
primary detoxification organ.
Studies have shown that low levels of Glutathione lead to poor liver
function. When the liver
suffers, the entire body suffers from an increased toxin load.
Immune System Enhancer:
Glutathione plays a central role in the proper function of our immune
cells, especially in the
production of white blood cells. The immune system uses a variety of
immune cells to ward
off pathogens and other threats. The growth and activity of these
cells depends on the
availability of Glutathione.
When your body has sufficient levels of Glutathione, it will fight off
illness better than if your
levels are deficient.
Clearly, Glutathione is perhaps one of the most important components
of overall health yet
discovered. When our levels of Glutathione are sufficient or elevated,
we are better able to
prevent illness, disease, and many of the degenerative processes of
aging.
When our Glutathione levels are deficient, we become much more
vulnerable to pathogens,
toxins, cellular damage, carcinogens (cancer causing agents),
radiation, and virtually every
other threat known.

The Fountain of Youth:
Has the answer to the legendary quest for the “Fountain of Youth” been
hiding under our
noses (or actually within our own cells) all these years? Perhaps!
The most widely accepted theory of aging is based upon the free-
radical theory. In other
words, the cumulative effect of oxidative stress eventually
degenerates the body’s ability to
win the daily battles within, and ultimately the war.
Several scientists have found that blood Glutathione levels
predictably decline with age in
otherwise healthy men and women.
But wait….
Because Glutathione is so critical and central to all of the primary
processes of cellular
protection, it begs one to question what would happen if we could slow
or reverse the
age-related decline we see in Glutathione levels.
Research has already shown that the age-related decline in Glutathione
levels has a direct
link to the onset or severity of many diseases.
In fact, Glutathione has been referenced in thousands of studies and
medical papers
discussing its role or possible therapeutic use in all of the
following areas:
• Aging
• Cancer
• Heart Disease
• Stroke
• Arthritis
• Parkinson’s
• Alzheimer’s
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Diabetes
• Hepatitis & Liver Disease
• AIDS/HIV
• Lung Disease
• Kidney Disease
• Prostate Disease
• Macular Degeneration
• Glaucoma & Cataracts
• Respiratory Disease
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Lupus
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Skin & Hair Disorders
Plus many more….. www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com

So, what would happen if we could preserve or elevate our Glutathione
levels? While direct
human studies have not yet declared Glutathione the sole victor in our
quest for eternal
youth, numerous studies give us reason to look closer.
Doctors J.P. Richie and Calvin Lang, Department of Biochemistry,
University of Louisville
demonstrated that Glutathione levels decline with age. They showed
this decline in several
organisms including mosquitoes, mice, and humans.
They proposed that restoring Glutathione levels to those of a younger
person might result in
an extension of life. In their first experiment, they increased the
Glutathione levels of
mosquitoes by 50-100 percent.
The result? The average mosquito lifespan increased by 30-38 percent.
Ok, I realize that
helping a mosquito live longer may not sound like good news, but it
did confirm their
Glutathione hypothesis and demonstrated a specific mechanism of aging
that can be
nutritionally modified. That is definitely some good news for all of
us.
Let’s move up the food chain a bit further.
Dr. Buonous of the Montreal General Hospital Research Institute
studied the effects of a
biologically-active whey protein diet. The bio-active whey protein fed
mice had an average
lifespan of 27 months (equivalent to a human age of 80 years old ) as
compared to the
control diet mice who only averaged 21 months (equivalent to a human
age of 55-60 years
old).
Not only did the mice lifespan increase by 30 percent, they clearly
showed an increase in
Glutathione tissue levels as the result of a diet rich in a bio-active
whey protein concentrate.
In a study of enzyme activity in older humans, Dr. Helle Anderson at
Odense University in
Denmark compared levels of Glutathione reductase in centenarians
between 100-105 years
old to a group of individuals aged 60-79. They found that the
centenarians had higher
Glutathione concentrations than the comparison group.
Dr. Mara Julius at the University of Michigan studied a community-
based sample of 33
subjects over the age of 60. Dr. Julius found that higher Glutathione
levels were associated
with fewer illnesses, higher levels of self-rated health, lower
cholesterol, lower body mass
index, and lower blood pressure. This was an important study because
it confirmed the clear
evidence of Glutathione’s importance to overall health in a non-
control group, a communitybased
sample.
Another point to notice in this study was the higher levels of self-
rated health. No one wants
to just live longer unless they can also live longer in vibrant
health.
We also know that one of the characteristics of aging is a decrease in
the immune system
which could account for numerous diseases and infections associated
with growing older.
Not surprisingly, researchers have also proven that low Glutathione
levels are linked to this
increased susceptibility.
Drs. Dayang Wu and Simin Meydani at Tufts University showed that by
adding Glutathione
to the white blood cells of elderly people, immune activity approached
levels of much
younger individuals.
Clearly, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that Glutathione is
perhaps the closest thing
to the ‘Fountain of Youth’ yet discovered.
However, discovering Glutathione’s importance to your health is only
the first step. Next, we
must understand how to preserve or boost our Glutathione levels to
help ensure optimal
health.
“You must get your levels of Glutathione up if you want to
keep your youth and live longer. High blood levels of
Glutathione predict good health and a long life.
Low levels predict early disease and death.”
Excerpt taken from Jean Carper’s bestseller ‘Stop Aging Now!’
Boost Your Glutathione www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
Knowledge is power, but it is also useless without action. We must
take action to give our
body its best chance at a long healthy life. Part of our strategy
should involve an effort to
avoid things that can cause an increase in oxidative stress.
• Exposure to Environmental Toxins
• Exposure to Household Chemicals
• Smoking and Tobacco Use
• Alcohol and Drug Use
• Radiation Exposure
• Trauma, Injury, and Burns
• Infection and Illness
• Poor Diet
• Lack of Sleep
• Stress
Wait a minute. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? There’s no way we
can avoid all of these
on a daily basis unless we live in a bubble!
I once believed that a well-balanced diet from organic whole foods
like fresh fruits,
vegetables, and some lean meats was all we needed to achieve proper
nutrition However,
I now know this is not sufficient for optimal health. Good nutrition
is only the starting point.

Here’s why. First, we can’t always eat the right foods in our modern
age of constantly being
too rushed or too tired to prepare a healthy meal. Second, most our
food supply is overprocessed
and over-farmed, leaving our food and our bodies deficient in many key
nutrients. Third, whenever you are stressed, sick, exercising heavily,
injured, or exposed to
environmental toxins, you need additional antioxidants to handle the
increase in free
radicals.
Because Glutathione is our body’s most important defense against all
forms of oxidative
stress, we need to ensure our body has a constant fuel supply of the
necessary building
blocks. To do that, we need to take in more of the critical precursors
than we can get from
food alone.
While there are several approaches, theories, and even a few drugs
that can be used to
boost Glutathione, I will only discuss here the three most popular
methods that are easily
available on the market. www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
Oral Glutathione:
There are many products and chemical companies that offer the actual
Glutathione peptide
in pill form or powder form. However, studies on the effectiveness of
oral Glutathione are at
best controversial.
From all of my own research on the matter, I have concluded that oral
Glutathione from
foods or supplements may have some effect, but it is most likely
negligible and less effective
when compared to the other two methods mentioned next, NAC and non-
denatured whey
protein.
NAC:
NAC stands for N-Acetyl Cysteine. Basically, NAC is a man-made
compound designed to
provide the amino acid Cysteine in a form the body can use.
Although NAC is available in most health food stores, it is in fact
classified as a synthetic
pharmaceutical drug. It has commonly been used to break up mucus in
lung diseases such
as cystic fibrosis, asthma, and emphysema and is also used for
acetaminophen poisoning.
However, NAC’s effect on glutathione levels is only temporary. Rapid
peaks are often
followed by a rapid drop, often to below normal levels. To maintain
constantly elevated
levels, it must be taken several times during the day which can be
hard on the body.
NAC is known to have possible side effects, dose-related dangers, long-
term use concerns,
and documented drug interactions. Therefore, I do not recommend it as
a daily supplement
for long-term use. It is best reserved for clinical applications.

Non-Denatured Whey Protein: www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
Whey protein is one of the two primary protein groups found in all
mammalian milk. Casein
is the other milk protein. Throughout history, mankind has revered
milk as the first food of
life. Even Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, prescribed whey
as a “serum” to his
patients 2,500 years ago.
We now understand that some of the most important immune-supporting
components of milk
come from whey protein. In fact, these are the same components
responsible for providing
newborns with their immune defense: Immunoglobulins, Lactoferrin, Beta-
lactoglobulins,
Glycomacropeptides, and Glutamylcysteine.
When consumed intact, fresh milk whey protein serves as a rich source
of all the known
amino acids including the precursor amino acids necessary for the
production of Glutathione:
Glutamic Acid, Glycine, and the all-important Cysteine.
However, these important precursors are fragile and easily denatured.
Denaturing is a
process in which proteins lose their 3-D structure due to some
external stress like high-heat
pasteurization or acidic modification. The protein literally unfolds
or is “broken” apart.
Therefore, it is imperative to understand that a non-denatured protein
represents the ideal
biological function for which it was designed by nature. In regard to
whey protein, a nondenatured
whey protein would represent the exact form that was intended to
nourish and
protect a newborn mammal.
So what does all this mean?
The ultra-high heat pasteurization methods used in the production of
most commercial whey
proteins severely denatures the fragile proteins and diminishes the
availability of naturallyoccurring
Cysteine.
By the time most milk and dairy products reach your table their
bioactivity is completely lost,
although their basic food value remains.
Because the amino acid Cysteine is the critical rate-limiting factor
in the body’s ability to
produce Glutathione, whey protein should only be consumed in its
original, nondenatured
form.
Clearly, my conclusion finds that the absolute best, all-natural, and
safest way to support
Glutathione levels is with a high-quality non-denatured (bio-active)
whey protein.
Instead of wasting money on isolated nutrients or synthetic
supplements while risking
possible side-effects, I suggest we use the perfectly designed food
that nature has already
provided.

A Better Whey:
When choosing the best whey protein, I recommend using the following
guidelines:
1. Does the whey protein come from grass-fed cow's milk?
Cow's naturally graze on grass, not grains. Whey protein from grass-
fed cows
provides a superior profile of nutrients. It has the highest
concentrations of healthy
fats like lipolic acid and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). Although
CLA is best known
for its antioxidant and anti-cancer properties, it has been found to
reduce the risk of
cardiovascular disease and may help to reduce body fat. CLA is found
exclusively in
the dairy fat and thus does NOT exist in fat-free dairy proteins such
as whey protein
isolates, skim milk, or casein.
2. Is it cold-processed without the use of acids/ion-exchange?
The best whey protein is carefully produced to retain the protein's
original structure.
This ensures maximum biological value while providing the full
spectrum of immunesupporting
components. These fragile components are highly damaged in the
majority
of commercial proteins that undergo ultra-high-heat pasteurization as
well as acid and
ion-exchange treatment. Select only whey that was carefully cold
processed from
fresh raw organic milk.
3. Is it derived from hormone-free, pesticide-free, and GMO-free milk?
A growing number of diary farmers inject the hormone rBGH into their
cows to
increase milk production. This hormone can find its way into the milk.
Similarly,
many of the grains used to feed cattle are genetically modified and
were raised with
pesticides that can also be passed into the milk.
4. Are all the ingredients 100% natural food-based ingredients?
The majority of whey protein shakes on the market today are crammed
full of
synthetic chemicals, cheap fillers, artificial flavorings, and
preservatives. Make sure
the ingredients are all 100% natural food-based ingredients.
5. Is the whey protein a concentrate instead of an isolate?
The human body was not designed to consume protein in an isolated form
devoid of
its nutritional cofactors. Most isolates are over-processed, thus
destroying
(denaturing) the fragile protein structure and rendering them
deficient in key amino
acids and immune-supporting nutrients. Isolates contain little or no
growth factors
from the vital protein bound fats, no CLA, and generally have a poor
taste.
Unfortunately, you will find it very difficult to find an affordable
whey protein on the
commercial market that meets all of these requirements.
That is why I was eventually forced to bring together the best experts
and raw materials in
the industry to create what I believe to be the greatest non-
denatured, bio-active whey
protein product available, Action Whey™. www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
©2010 Adrian Goad, All Rights Reserved 14
Action Whey's™ formulation meets all of these requirements plus a
unique and powerful
blend of additional nutrients:
Organic Sweet Whey - The original "serum" form of whey includes
important minerals and
other original co-factors that bring this unique formulation one step
closer to the original
benefits cherished throughout history. www.conwell.myemeraldbiz.com
Arabinogalactin - A powerful plant-based fiber, phyto-nutrient, pre-
biotic, and immune
booster. It also helps to increase the biological value of the whey
protein.
MCT's - Medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil for easy
digestion, fast energy, and
healing properties. This natural, metabolic fuel supply is efficient
and effective for protein
synthesis. The result will be leaner muscle, more volume, faster
muscle growth and repair,
and greater energy to burn.
Sunflower Seed Lecithin - Most commercial products use cheap soy
lecithin. Sunflower
seed lecithin is a superior plant source for phospholipids.
Phospholipids are essential
molecules that are found in the lining of practically every cell in
the body. They are very
important for protecting brain cells and helping the cells
communicate.
Coconut Oil - The health and nutritional benefits that can be derived
from consuming
coconut oil have been recognized in many parts of the world for
centuries. Coconut oil is a
rare and rich source for Lauric Acid which is largely missing in the
American diet.
Action Whey™ is not only the superior choice to fuel Glutathione
production safely and
naturally, it also provides numerous other health benefits including:
• Delivers Every Single Amino Acid Needed for Optimal Health*
• Boosts Energy and Physical Endurance*

Ironic, Isn’t It?
I find it ironic that the very same protein our body needs at the
beginning of life is also the
same protein that may help us defy the end of life.
When my father eventually passed away six months before the birth of
my own son, I
developed a deeper appreciation of the body’s incredible journey
through life; a journey
that begins with a beautiful radiance of vibrant health. Thus began my
own journey to
seek and teach a lifestyle that will preserve the radiance of youth in
each of us.
Who would have dreamed that the same Glutathione compound I studied
for love of my
father, is now the same compound I passionately share with others who
also seek a better
quality of life.
I pray that my efforts will bring you health, happiness, and
longevity.
