to Survive: A Comprehensive Guide to the Medical Use of
Anabolic Steroids, Nutrition and Exercise for HIV (+) men
and women by Michael Mooney, Nelson R. Vergel
comment: If there is one survival tool every HIV(+)
person should consider it is taking dietary supplements
that increase glutathione production. Suggested dosing is
500 to 1,000 mg three times per day. Other supplements that
increase glutathione include L-glutamine (12 to 36 grams
per day), alpha lipoic acid (100 to 1,000 mg per day), selenium
(200 - 800 mcg per day), and (undenatured) whey protein.
Protein malnutrition can cause a decrease in glutathione
production too, so be sure to get plenty of protein three
times per day.
Stress, Cell Activation and Viral Infection
Edited by C. Pasquier, et al.
Summary exerpt of article : "Place For An Antioxidant
Therapy In Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection" (pp
311-321). Oxidative stress, a known activator of HIV
replication in vitro, has a potential role as a cofactor of
HIV disease progression. Arguments supporting the role of oxidative
stress as a cofactor in HIV activation are summarized in this
review. The role of intracellular antioxidants such as glutathione
(GSH), and drugs and nutriceutical agents promoting GSH synthesis,
are discussed. The review also includes the early results of
nutritional interventions based on a diet enriched with a whey
protein concentrate prepared in a proprietary manner.

Super Anti-Oxidants : Why They Will Change the Face of Healthcare
in the 21st Century by James F. Balch
This Book is Worth a Read (December 12, 1999 Reviewer:
Ralph Nordstrom from Southern California) This is an exciting
book. Packer reviews the research on antioxidants, not only
from his own lab at the University of California, Berkely, but
also from labs around the world. He not only quotes research
results in vitro and on mice but he also quotes such human studies
as are available. Packer is enthusiastic about the effects antioxidants
can have on improving health and increasing ones life. He freely
speculates about discoveries he expects will be found in future
research but he is careful to state them as such. I'd skip to
the last part on implementing the Packer plan and put that into
action, then return to the beginning of the book and read up
on all the research.
Gsh Phenomenon : Nature's Most Powerful Antioxidant and Healing
by Alan H. Pressman, Sheila Buff
"Glutathione(or its reduced form, GSH) is a natural protein
found in the body's cells and in many fresh fruits and vegetables.
Pressman, a chiropractor and nutritionist, considers glutathione
to be the most important antioxidant molecule, high levels
of which appear to protect against the dangers of cancer,
heart disease, premature aging, autoimmune diseases, and chronic
illnesses. Glutathione plays an essential role in helping
the liver detoxify environmental poisons and the body's own
metabolic wastes, a process necessary to overall health. Two
dozen high-glutathione recipes, lists of holistic health organizations
and suppliers, and a glossary conclude the book." - Penny
a section from Chapter 1: Amino Acids,Glutathione and Optimal
Nature's Powerful Antioxidant
By Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP, and Stephen SchettiniFrom
The Publisher: Glutathione, produced in the liver, is a
protein that battles disease and slows aging by maintaining
the health of red and white blood cells. Dr. Gutman details
how it boosts immune function, protects cells, eliminates toxins,
and influences longevity. Although he notes that human glutathione
levels decline as people age, Gutman shows readers how to elevate
levels of the substance in the body to promote continued immune
Metabolism and Physiological Functions
Edited by Jose Vina
Over 30 papers discuss the techniques and findings of investigating
the level and function of the peptide glutathione in cells.
It has been associated with such functions as antioxidant defense,
the regulation of metabolic pathways, hormonal action, the detoxification
of xenobiotics, the maintenance of cell structure, and more
recently with nutrition, aging, and immunology.
in the Nervous System
by Christopher A. Shaw
This new resource captures the excitement of a new field in
neuroscience, describing the history and chemistry of glutathione
in relation to antioxidant defenses and oxidative stress. This
book provides an overview of the glutathione molecule and its
various roles and makes far-reaching predictions about the potential
role of glutathione in the nervous system. The specific topics
include the discovery of the GSH receptor in hydra and its evolutionary
significance, the regulation of apoptosis in the nervous system,
the role of altered glutathione status in the development of
Parkinson's disease, and free-radical toxicity in amyotrophic
S-Transferases: Structure, Function, and Clinical Implications

Against Cancer by Ralph W. Moss
Must Read. Clear, Concise, Well-researched, Convincing
(April 16, 2000 Reviewer: Owen R. Fonorow from USA)
This book should be given to every medical student and Oncologist
in this country. Lately, the media is full of reports cautioning
cancer patients about anti-oxidants. After reading Antioxidants
Against Disease, you will have the knowledge necessary to evaluate
these unsubstantiated media reports for yourself. Ralph presents
all sides, not just one side. Few people in the world know as
much as Ralph Moss about treating cancer. Ralph left the NY
Sloan- Kettering cancer center when they asked him to misrepresent
research results. Moss was a spokesman and was supposed to say
that no benefit from Laetrile had been found, yet Ralph knew
otherwise. He had spoken with the research scientist and knew
that standard tests in mice had indicated significant benefit
from Laetrile. Ralph resigned and began his quest to bring us
the truth about the myriad of cancer treatments.
