How does ClearDrops compare to using glutathione for detoxification?
Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (00:00):
Lori, will you ask the ninth and final question? Wow,
ZOI Advisor (00:05):
Absolutely. I absolutely will. This has been incredible. So, glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, and some people are using it for detoxification, as you may know. So, the question comes up with, with my patients is, well, how does ClearDrops compare to using glutathione for detoxification?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:26):
All right. That's a fantastic question, Lori. Thank you for asking this. Okay. Let me tell you this. Any living person is using glutathione for detoxification. It is our intrinsic detox system. Let me put it in simple words, glutathione is the body's ClearDrops. The body, our human body is making glutathione. Now glutathione is our natural detoxifier created by our own cells. The main production of glutathione is in the liver. We don't get glutathione with the food. There's not a certain food that we're going to eat and these foods will give us glutathione. Now glutathione is detoxifying several toxins, or actually, if we are more accurate regarding the biochemistry, glutathione participates in several biochemical reactions used by our body to detoxify. For these reasons, as you know Lori, it is a very logical idea and process to say, all right, if our body's making glutathione to detoxify, why don't we provide more glutathione to our body to detoxify?
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (02:03):
And for these reasons, with this idea in mind, many companies create glutathione supplements to be used in order to be added, to add glutathione to our body. Well, unfortunately, nature does not work like that because the bioavailability of glutathione, if you take it by mouth and it gets in the gut is practically very little close to zero. So, no matter how much external glutathione you're going to take, this glutathione will not be absorbed. Let's clarify what means will not be absorbed. This glutathione after one or two bowel movements will be out of your gut, will not be in your blood and for this reason cannot and will not be used to detoxify the human body. There are studies published showing that because of the very low, very, very, very low bioavailability of glutathione, it's better to provide the human body, with the amino acids that are used by the human body to go ahead with this synthesis of glutathione like cysteine and glycine. But if you did, if you give ready, glutathione to the human body via dietary supplement, it's not going to work. So that's how glutathione works and how and what is the problem with glutathione supplementation? The mechanism of action between glutathione and ClearDrops is different, ZOI Global ClearDrops is made by water-soluble, zeolite, proven, capable to cross cellular membranes and be absorbed. And for this reason, can offer a systemic support in our body to detoxify. I hope this clarifies the glutathione myth.

What a call? Thank you, Lori. For, for asking that, you know, we hear that all the time. And at the end of the day, having a formulator that is a board-certified pharmacist, a board-certified medical doctor, a board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Nikolaos, we have become so dependent and, and understanding truly what we have our hands on that. The difference in the dietary supplement arena, ZOI Global will make over time is going to be a game-changer. People are getting the truth,
Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (05:20):
Denise, it should be because the dietary supplements domain, and specifically, the zeolites sub-domain, has been abused, brutally abused by bad actors for many, many, many years. Some of these actors have faced legal repercussions for their bad acting. Some of them have not, and some of them have faced legal repercussions for the bad acting, and they do the same thing today. Now, as responsible players in this industry, I think it is our ethical obligation to make any humanly possible contribution in such a way to better this industry, in such a way to remove myths, and in such a way to provide knowledge to individuals that are conscious and want to take care of their wellness. Well, there are ways to take care of your wellness. Also, there are ways that you are going to just waste your money and have the feeling, the false feeling that you are taking care of your wellness. I think it is our ethical obligation to explain, to provide information, provide scientific information, not marketing over science. THE OPPOSITE! Science-driven marketing. And for this reason, you have Metron Nutraceuticals’ commitment and my personal commitment to walk and travel this journey together.
