The combination of ingredients (quercetin, reduced glutathione and beetroot) in GlutaQ promotes cell health, glutathione synthesis and supports the immune system. Together these ingredients help support healthy cell activity. While benefits are attributed to the unique mix of antioxidant-supporting ingredients in GlutaQ, the real benefit is where these antioxidants function best, inside the cell. Glutathione is an intracellular antioxidant – neutralizing free radicals that contribute to aging.
As we age the cells in our body naturally begin to decline in quantity and their ability to carry out these functionalities, at the same intensity, as they once had. Both quercetin and glutathione assist in healthy cell development by supplying energy to the cells. While aging is inevitable, there are numerous studies and research findings that suggest there are things we can do to help support out health. The tripod of ingredients delivered in GlutaQ work synergistically to help coordinate the body’s immune system by encouraging healthy cellular health and function.
The immune-supporting antioxidant properties of quercetin and glutathione play a significant role in promoting healthy cell function by assisting our cells in combatting oxidative stress. Their ability to regulate free radicals encourages cell health by promoting normal cell cycle activity. Glutathione, an important molecule naturally produced in the liver and various tissues throughout the body, acts as the cells’ natural garbage man by helping to identify toxins within the body’s cells and converting them so they can be metabolized and expelled from the body. Because glutathione is the master antioxidant in the body and is heavily concentrated in tissues such as the liver, lungs heart, and skeletal muscle, it plays a critical role in supporting immune function and protection against oxidative stress. In general, glutathione functions in a similar way that a catalytic converter works to clean and eliminate harmful emissions from a car, enhancing its overall wellbeing and ability to perform.
Quercetin, a source of flavonoids, encourages mast cell activity which can help fuel and maintain a healthy immune system. Supplementation of quercetin may help to maintain cellular health. One unique factor of quercetin’s function in the body is its action as a zinc ionophore, meaning quercetin assists the use of zinc, or its transport across a lipid membrane, in the body for healthy aging as well as support of a healthy immune system. Even with the correct food choices individuals may lack the proper amounts of vitamins or nutrients needed to support and maintain a healthy diet; nutritional inadequacies can have an impact on the activity and functioning of the immune system. Although it depends on the type and amount of food one consumes, the average daily intake of quercetin absorbed by the body is thought to fall between 10-100mg, which demonstrates that supplementation can be beneficial when used in combination with a healthy diet.
The popular beetroot, easily recognized by its heart-shaped leaves, dates to medieval times and was notably used by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for various culinary and medicinal properties. The Greeks also utilized beetroot in rituals as they believed it could conserve one’s beauty. Beetroot may support a healthy immune system and may help support cardiovascular health. GlutaQ delivers 300 mg of beetroot powder which is a source of blood vascular nitrates that may support energy in aging cells. These nitrites are known as Betaine, and they may promote healthy levels of nitric oxide in the body, the blood vascular system and the cell. Beetroot may help maintain healthy cell function, even in healthy individuals, as it assists the cell in its efficient use of oxygen. The cell gets to hold on to its oxygen longer, that translates to energy and better vascular quality. Beetroot powder may support stamina, endurance, energy, and athletic recovery due to its ability to support the circulation of blood and oxygen in the body.
In a study that used time-to exhaustion as a measurement (the amount of time an athlete can perform at a specific interval intensity), the results provided evidence suggesting that both acute and chronic supplementation of beetroot may have performance-enhancing effects which could contribute to an increase in athletic endurance and stamina.
Vegan and gluten-free, GlutaQ is a dietary supplement that may have a myriad of health benefits, including supporting a healthy immune system and cell cycle to help maintain cellular health and function. Our bodies, just like cars, run more smoothly when given the right fuel and care. Help fuel your body so it can drive well with GlutaQ, “such stuff dreams are made of.”
Formulated with three novel ingredients, to promote a healthy cell cycle, immune system and cellular function.

Glutathione is a tripeptide made from the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. While glutathione can be found in fruits and vegetables, it is also naturally found in the body. Although it is primarily synthesized in the liver, glutathione is found in all cells where it contributes to DNA synthesis and repair, protein and prostaglandin synthesis, amino acid transport, enzyme activation, and other cellular functions. There are two forms of glutathione: oxidized glutathione (GSSG), the inactive form, and reduced glutathione (GSH, or L-glutathione), the active form. Glutathione is a primary antioxidant because it is used in so many different compartments of the body: detoxification, liver activity, cell to cell signaling, aging and immune function. Reduced glutathione mediates the oxidation of cells at the cellular and mitochondrial level, acting as the “garbage man” scavenging out free radicals, allowing cells to function with minimal interruption.
Quercetin is a class of metabolites known as flavonoids, found naturally in foods of plant origin, such as onions, apples, berries, teas and red wines and some trees like the Japanese Pagoda tree. One significant benefit of quercetin is to help move zinc into the cell. Flavonoids act as antioxidants, thus supporting cellular, immune, and cognitive health.
Beetroot Extract (Root)
Beets are root vegetables that have become increasingly popular for their nutritious properties in recent years. Thanks to their high content of nitrates, beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with health benefits. Research shows that diets rich in nitrates and nitrites – particularly from natural sources like vegetables rather than processed sources like meat – can support cardiovascular health by such means as supporting healthy blood flow. In the body, nitrate turns into nitric oxide – a molecule that dilates blood vessels.

Is GlutaQ safe for women who are pregnant?
Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding should check with their healthcare provider before using.
How does this supplement support the mitochondria to the cell?
Mitochondria, often referred to as the cell’s “powerhouse” or “engine”, delivers energy (ATP) to all cells in the body, except red blood cells. Every cell requires ATP to function properly; for example, it provides us with the stamina needed to maintain endurance during physical activity. As we age, the mitochondria within our cells naturally begin to decline in both quantity and quality of performance. Their ability to carry out the same function or at the same intensity, has diminished as a result of age, lack of physical movement and poor diet. GlutaQ helps support the delivery of nutrients to the mitochondria in our cells to maintain healthy mitochondrial function and ultimately promotes cell longevity by allowing the cells to hold on to oxygen longer.
Are there any warnings associated with taking quercetin as an oral supplement?
Mild side effects associated with oral supplementation of quercetin are tingling of the limbs and possible headache. It is uncertain if long term supplementation of quercetin can have side effects. When a product contains quercetin, check with your healthcare provider before taking cyclosporine, estradiol or felodipine. Do not take quercetin with antibiotics.
Is GlutaQ safe for those who have or may be prone to kidney issues?
Supplementation of quercetin above the recommended supplementation intake may be associated with the way the liver metabolizes other medications and/or kidney issues. While it has been found that consuming excessive amounts of beets may have effects on the kidney, there is no substantial evidence suggesting harmful effects on liver from supplementation of beetroot powder.
