I wrote an article titled Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3: A New Era in Glutathione Therapy, which was published in the June 2017 issue of the Townsend Letter. In this article, I review the discovery of Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 which is a strain of probiotic bacteria that synthesizes glutathione. My article also reviews the following important features of glutathione: the body's most important antioxidant, its regulation of detoxification and its requirement in immune function. I also review studies which report that glutathione is a key biomarker of aging. In all animal models tested to date, increasing glutathione levels results in improved health and increased longevity or life extension. Increasing glutathione levels in one of the most important proactive steps you can take to improve your long-term health outcomes. The ability to effectively boost glutathione levels on a daily basis by taking Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 represents a revolution in medicine and healthcare.
