Are you making travel plans for the summer? If so, remember that your body’s immunity does not need to be impacted by traveling and that you can take the necessary steps to protect your health. The key is to manage your oxidative stress levels and ensure your glutathione levels are at optimum. Here’s why your new travel buddy should be Glutathione, the Master Antioxidant.
Oxidative stress is caused by travel and free radicals are harmful oxygen molecules in our bodies that are unstable and reactive. For all the relaxation and fun that travel brings, time in the air and the increased, prolonged altitude means more free radicals lose in your body. When they cannot be balanced by antioxidants, which, when in plentiful supply, can neutralize the free radicals, we have oxidative stress. Oxidative stress significantly affects our immunity and is the root of illness and many diseases.
While we think the most significant stressors aka “free radical instigators” during air travel might be things like the emotional stress of flying, the increased exposure to germs, dehydration, and unhealthy eating – the fact is, a significant cause of free radicals when flying is the drastically larger amount of UVA rays and radiation you are exposed to when in the sky 30,000 feet high, and airplane windows that do not have the protection to block them adequately.
The study The Risk of Melanoma in Pilots and Cabin Crew: UV Measurements in Flying Airplanes concluded that “Pilots and cabin crew have approximately twice the incidence of melanoma compared with the general population.” UVA is a major cause of melanoma. The report determined that pilots flying for just 56.6 minutes at 30,000 feet receive the same amount of UVA carcinogenic effective radiation as a 20-minute tanning bed session. And imagine that over a lifetime of flying.
The good news is that Glutathione combats the free radicals of travel. This Master Antioxidant detoxes the free radicals caused by UVA rays, radiation environmental stressors, germs, and more, lessening the load on your body. Increasing Glutathione intake during travel is essential to keeping the balance. You can do many things to maximize Glutathione levels in your body for travel – avoid drinking alcohol and get plenty of sleep leading up to your trip. Moderate exercise is vital to overall health and antioxidant levels. In addition, Glutathione-boosting foods help, too, like avocados, strawberries, grapefruit, papaya, and more.
The easiest way to increase your Glutathione is to pack a Glutathione supplement that is easy to use while on the go, like Auro’s Glutaryl™. It is the perfect travel companion because Glutaryl™ can be easily sprayed on your wrist – anytime, anywhere. The Auro GSH™ Antioxidant Delivery System, a patented, first-of-its-kind technology, optimizes antioxidant absorption and efficacy.
