Glutathione and Homeostasis



Homeostasis refers to any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival.
Unlike your body temperature, which is stable throughout your life, the homeostatic level of glutathione (GSH) progressively decreases as we get older or in chronic disease. This means that your cells will gradually produce a lower amount of glutathione (GSH) simply because the base line or homeostatic level decreases. This results in your glutathione (GSH) levels falling below the level necessary to neutralize free radicals and combat chronic inflammation.
