I posted this on my Acai thread which I think is under General Treatment, and I'm also copying it to a couple of my other threads. But then I decided to give it it's own thread, specifically so Rich would see it or any others interested in glutathione. I thought the info was kind of cool. Maybe berries or foods helping gluathione is nothing new, but I still liked the blurb I found on this site. Here's my copy/paste: I have not been on this site much lately at all, but I recently came across this article stating that Acai upregulated...or did something to.... two genes relating to glutathione in a mouse study (I think I paraphrased that properly). I "was" looking for a quote about Acai and cytokines, but I ended up finding this. READ THIS!!!!!! IT IS SHORT. Click the link below, scroll down to the section in the middle labelled "Study Details"(it is a short paragraph, but I can't copy it here). http://www.nutraingredients-usa.com/Research/Amazing-acai-alleviates-atherosclerosis-Study This would explain possibly why Acai helps me in the same way TMG seems to help me, glutathione. I agree with Rich that all roads may lead to glutathione (or at the least, I heard him question if...). I think the main problem in my CFS is what Cheney says, "too high cytokines and lack of gluathione" (paraphrasing). What's interesting is that certain supps that should lower cytokines don't really produce energy in me, but then some really really do. Then some gluta precursors don't help as much as others with energy (the only real barometer I use). From what I read, there are different types of cytokines, and certain substances lower certain cytokines better? Acai does lower cytokines. And maybe with the gluta, there are just certain things that my genetic makeup needs more than others. Either way, I am becoming a believer that CFS actually is curable.
