Question: What is the Glutathione level in people with Alzheimer's disease? Alzheimer's runs in my family. I have been taking a Glutathione accelerator and recently was told that people with Alzheimer's have NO glutathione production naturally occurring in their bodies. Are there any studies or reports on this association?

Ladislav Volicer, M.D., Ph.D., is recognized as an international expert on advanced dementia care. He is a courtesy full professor at the School of Aging Studies, University of South Florida, Tampa, and visiting professor at the Third Medical Faculty, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. Twenty-five years ago, he established one of the first dementia special care units.

Although there is some evidence indicating that oxidative stress may play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease, there is no evidence that glutathione production is decreased. There are no scientific papers published on the Glutathione accelerator and its developer, Dr. Keller did not publish anything in peer reviewed journals about it as well. I think that you are wasting your money taking this preparation.
