Oxidative Stress: Mechanism Of Cell Death Clarified. (click the link for the full article).
I recently posted an article regarding liver disease and the recuperative and repairative effects of NAC (n-acetylcysteine). Taking NAC on a daily basis increases the levels of Glutathione (GSH) in the body. Note that GSH is the major antioxidant protein in the body and is “always low” in disease states.
This article associates cell death with low levels of GSH. Glutathione slows or prevents cell oxidation. It also mentions Vit E as being important.
You can get NAC at any vitamin shop. Taking a daily dose helps keep your immune system up and active. It slows oxidation (cell aging and death).
