May 2020 London, UK: TOMESORAL, a proprietary heirloom white tomato powder, from Green Acre H&B shown to act as a catalyst to glutathione production by stimulating the expression of glutathione reductase. Glutathione reductase is a key enzyme converting oxidized glutathione (GSSH) to reduced glutathione (GSH), the active form of glutathione for skin beauty and overall wellness, health and resilience. Dually, TOMESORAL helps reducing inflammation (supressed TNF-a expression) and stimulates regeneration through VEGF expression and angiogenesis. It demonstrated an ability to reverse injury related cell and tissue damage being able to prevent leakage of Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH), MMP-12 (elastase) and reduce lipid peroxidation.**
Interestingly, in a recent publication by Horwitz R.I. et al in Respiratory Medicine Case Reports 30 (2020) 101063* the authors report a case study showing the efficacy of glutathione therapy in relieving dyspnea associated with COVID-19 pneumonia.
The study reports a trial on two patients with a cough and dyspnea consistent with novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP). Two grams of oral or intravenous (IV) glutathione that was used improved their dyspnea within 1 h of use. Repeated use of both 2000 mg of oral and IV glutathione was effective in further relieving respiratory symptoms. The authors suggested that oral and IV glutathione, glutathione precursors (N-acetyl-cysteine) and alpha lipoic acid may represent a novel treatment approach for blocking NF-κB and addressing “cytokine storm syndrome” and respiratory distress in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia.
What about increasing and maintaining naturally endogenous glutathione (GSH) with natural dietary supplement such as TOMESORAL?
The findings that supplementation (of cells) with TOMESORAL stimulated the expression of glutathione reductase, a key enzyme in glutathione regeneration, may offer a natural way to boost levels of reduced glutathione (GSH) from the more abundant oxidised (“used”) glutathione (GSSH).
Supporting higher levels of “usable”, reduced glutathione alongside reduction in inflammation, injured cell and tissue related damage as well as improving regeneration are supportive evidence that continues supplementation with effective dosages of TOMESORAL could help maintaining health, protecting against and assisting faster recovery from infections.**
Although TOMESORAL primary use is for beauty and wellness from within, it is not mutually excluding its use for boosting the natural defence system against infections, increasing self-resilience and healthy state.**
