Ross Pelton, RPh, PhD, CCN and director of scientific research with Texas-based Essential Formulas, published his scientific paper “Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3: A New Era In Glutathione Therapy” in the June 2017 edition of the The Townsend Letter, the Examiner of Alternative Medicine.
“Probiotic research is fast transforming our understanding of human health as science is discovering exclusive strains can produce highly specific health benefits,” said Pelton. “This is truly an exciting time in probiotic science and ongoing discoveries of health-promoting strains will alter the entire landscape of functional health.”
One of these strains is Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3, discovered in 1995 by award-winning microbiologist Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists when they isolated this probiotic strain discovered to produce glutathione. Considered by scientists as the “Master Antioxidant,” glutathione is made and used by every cell in the body.
“We know that optimal glutathione levels are critical for good health, but it has been notoriously difficult to supplement because taken orally it is broken down during digestion. Also, in all animals and humans, glutathione levels decline with age. That’s where ME-3 comes in,” said Pelton. “Essential Formulas’ Reg’Activ products, which contain ME-3, are the only supplements that consistently and effectively boost glutathione levels in the body, thus leading the way to a paradigm-changing revolution in health and medicine.”
