The Mighty Avocado... Good Source of Glutathione and Decreased Cancer Risk?

The Mighty Avocado... Good Source of Glutathione and Decreased Cancer Risk?

"When analyzed by dietary source, however, glutathione intakes derived from all vegetables and from meat were not related to risk of cancer. Only glutathione derived from fruit and from vegetables commonly consumed raw was associated with reduced oral cancer risk." PMID: 8154469

Glutathione, a tripeptide derived from glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine which is found in many foods, may function as an anticarcinogen by acting as an antioxidant. 

The continuous research with respect to raw fruits and vegetables is one of variety for getting a good cross section of nutrients, fibers, and enzymes. 

For now, it appears as though the MIGHTY AVOCADO is one of the best fruit choices to utilize GLUTATHIONE for your ANTIOXIDANT needs.

And Seriously, who doesn't love avocados?
