In their program #81, La Quinta Columnakeeps their research on how to detoxify graphene in the body. The team already mentioned that N-acetylcysteine and glutathione certainly work to degrade graphene, but today they talked about a very readily available supplement: zinc.
Zinc has an interaction with glutathione and that is that the higher the concentration of zinc in the blood, the more glutathione the body produces. This is demonstrated in the study entitled ‘Effect of zinc deficiency on blood glutathione levels.’
Another interesting study they read and discussed during the program was entitled ‘Decreased zinc availability affects glutathione metabolism in neuronal cells and in the developing brain,’ which highlights that zinc deficiency leads to an increase in cellular oxidants. As zinc levels are low, glutathione metabolism in the brain changes, leading to neuronal cell deterioration.
From the same study, they concluded that zinc probably requires the enzyme γ-Glutamylcysteine synthetase (GCL) to synthesize glutathione, so it is important for each person to have optimal zinc levels to stimulate and guarantee an optimal glutathione reserve as well.
