Zetpil™ Reduced Glutathione 450mg
- Glutathione (GSH) may protect the brain from free radicals and oxidative stress.
- Decreased levels of glutathione have been linked to the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases.*
- Oral intake of GSH does not increase GSH levels in the body.
- Approximately 4 dosages of Zetpil™ 450mg suppositories is the equivalent of one (1) I.V. dose absorbed.

Zetpil™ Suppository Advantage
Zetpil™ delivers nutrition via the rectum with the use of suppositories that have a unique, all- natural formulated base that has revolutionized not only this mode of delivery, but also the ability to obtain nutrients in a far more efficacious method. These suppositories are a result of combining natural ingredients with a non-irritating, rapid melting (5-6 minutes), readily absorbable (superior retention), antioxidant base material (free radical scavenging ability) and delivers the nutrients directly into the bloodstream in less than 20 minutes in a highly effective manner. Oral supplements are exposed to the hazards of stomach acid, digestive enzymes, food-related breakdown, first pass metabolism, and other bioavailability issues in the gastro-intestinal system.
Additionally, many raw materials simply have a very low bioavailability , and only achieve around 10% or less (commonly <1%) absorption rates, even if the patient is in optimal health condition. Compromised health, age, or certain conditions that result in an inability to take oral nutrients often preclude these patient populations from obtaining the necessary nutrition to stay healthy which often exacerbates chronic health issues.
Zetpil™ suppositories are a NOW solution to delivering the necessary nutrients to patients, on a daily basis, that is both easy, comfortable and cost effective. The safety and noticeable effectiveness of these products will far outweigh any initial hesitation you have regarding this mode of delivery.
What makes Zetpil™’s Reduced Glutathione Different?
What makes this product truly revolutionary is that we have combined pure pharmaceutical grade Reduced Glutathione into our proprietary suppository base to be delivered directly into the blood stream potentially affecting an elevation of the serum glutathione levels. The cost is a fraction of IV Glutathione treatments, can be done in the comfort of your own home at your convenience, and allows for repeated administration without the time and expense of doctor visits. For a majority of the patient population pursuing the benefits of Reduced Glutathione treatments, frequent out-of-the house trips are not only bothersome, but problematic as well. Zetpil™’s revolutionary product may just be the practical solution so many are seeking.
Considering the cost, side effects and inconvenience of I.V. Reduced Glutathione treatments, the Zetpil™ solution seems both practical, easy, and more effective long-term for your health care needs. Approximately 4 dosages of Zetpil™ 450mg suppositories is the equivalent of one (1) I.V. dose absorbed.
What is Gluthione?
Glutathione (GSH) is considered to be the most powerful, most versatile, and most important of the body’s self-generated (endogenous) antioxidants. Glutathione is found in almost all living cells with the highest concentrations found in the liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas and the eye. It helps maintain normal brain function, protects the integrity of red blood cells, and plays a vital role in our immune function by modulating white blood cell production as well as its anti-viral properties. However, glutathione is best known for being a very powerful antioxidant.
Antioxidants are REQUIRED to prevent excess free radicals which lead to oxidative stress
What are “free radicals” and “oxidative stress”?
During respiration your body constantly reacts with oxygen for your cells to produce energy. A natural consequence of this activity is that highly reactive, unstable molecules are produced known as “free radicals”. Approximately 80% of all free radical production in the body is a result of this essential energy-generating process. Environmental stresses (ie: UV damage, pollution, radiation), emotional stress, inflammation and pharmaceutical drugs also directly cause the production of free radicals.
These free radicals (also called reactive oxygen/nitrogen species- ROS/RNS) are the nasty organic molecules responsible for aging, DNA and tissue damage, and many other types of diseases. They are called “free” because they drift around the body with at least one unpaired electron in its outermost shell until they stabilize, and “radical” because there is a large compilation of molecules from which they can snatch electrons from. As these free radicals accumulate they begin to overwhelm the body’s ability to safely stabilize them which results in oxidative stress, or damage.
How can you minimize these radicals’ damage?
ANTIOXIDANTS. Powerful antioxidants help these unstable molecules from binding with healthy molecules. However, there is a catch. What constitutes a “powerful” antioxidant may not be what you have been led to believe. One of the biggest myths touted by the nutrition industry is that all antioxidants are created equal and nothing could be further from the truth.
Many antioxidant vitamins commonly praised in mainstream medicine, such as C, E and A, are considered classical antioxidants and, in theory, are supposed to be effective in combating free radical damage. However, in the process of squelching free radicals these nutrients transform from a reduced state to an oxidized state, lose their spare electron (now molecularly unstable) and ultimately become free radicals themselves! During this process of transforming from an antioxidant to a free radical these classical antioxidants also DEPLETE one of the most basic cellular antioxidants- GLUTATHIONE. None of this is beneficial, especially since glutathione is far more powerful than the classic antioxidants.
In the end, cellular glutathione is depleted, the classic antioxidants have become free radicals themselves, and no damage has been halted, but rather promoted simply by using the wrong antioxidants to fight the battle.
Therapeutic Properties of Glutathione
Since glutathione is involved in a multitude of cellular processes and decreases in glutathione levels are indicative of many human health conditions, appropriate supplementation with reduced glutathione may be beneficial to one’s overall health status. Additionally, glutathione has been suggested to be helpful for, but not limited to:
- Chelation of common toxins (ie: car exhaust, cigarette smoke, alcohol and aspirin),
- Cirrhosis and fatty liver diseases or alcoholism,
- Pharmaceutical overload,
- Psoriasis, and
Current research on glutathione is largely centered on two key health issues: immunity and neurodegenerative diseases. Glutathione has been clinically shown to affect immune function, auto-immune diseases and viral infections. Not only are glutathione (GSH) levels depressed in these health conditions, but increasing GSH levels was shown to have positive effects.
“Interestingly, low GSH levels (and high oxidant burdens) are associated with many immune dysfunctions, including auto-immune and inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis. It has been suggested that compromised GSH levels may be a critical factor in the initial onset of these conditions.”http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2756154/
Glutathione levels naturally decrease with increasing age, and therefore, its reduction contributes to the overall aging of the body. Neurodegenerative diseases are on the rise with our aging population and oxidative stress has been proven to be a major contributing factor to the onset and severity of these conditions. Glutathione may play a key role in protecting the brain from free radicals and oxidative stress, and therefore could be a prime antioxidant to help minimize this damage leading to debilitating neurodegenerative diseases.
“Glutathione (GSH) plays a key role in protecting the body against reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediated damage. Disruption in GSH homeostasis has been linked to initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases. Unfortunately, consuming large quantities of high-GSH foods/oral supplements does not change the levels of GSH in the body. In fact, oral intake of GSH does not increase GSH levels in the body, although intravenous dosing of GSH apparently does.”http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3497002/
