My Health Transformation Story | Understanding The Importance of Glutathione

Since I have announced becoming a the first Sponsored Brand Ambassador Athlete by RobKellerMD.com,  I have had the blessing to be able to speak about the benefits of our products to many athletes.  It's a story I never grow tired of sharing.

I would like to share with you an in-depth story of how this formulation has transformed my health & my life.

In 2008, I was introduced to Dr. Robert H. Keller's research and the importance of raising our Glutathione levels as we get older.  Every decade, after the age of 20, our Glutathione (GSH) levels decline by 10% for every decade.  By the time I learned of this, I was 46 yrs old - which meant that my GSH levels had already declined by at least 20%.

So, what's the big deal?  Everything.  Glutathione is the master antioxidant, but many do not know about the importance of having Glutathione high levels in our body.  We know about Vitamin C,E and even D - but how often have you heard of the mighty anti-oxidant of Glutathione?

When I heard of the formulation, I wasn't a runner. I didn't even work out.  In fact, my diet and lifestyle was horrible.  I drank AT LEAST a 6 pack of soda's a day (no water), ate processed/fast food daily and I was at least 25 lbs heavier than I am now.  I had difficulty sleeping every night since my hysterectomy in 2001 and my joints ached from all my athletic injuries as a kid.  It was not uncommon for me to only sleep 4 hours a night and wake up limping all over the house. 

I started taking the product in the hopes it would give me more energy.  With my lack of sleep, I was beyond exhausted, everyday. 

What I gained from the product was more than I ever anticipated and it is not exaggeration that it TRANSFORMED my life.

4 days after starting with the formulation - 
I slept through the night, for the first time in 7 years.  I remember, JUMPING up out of bed, wondering what was wrong.  Was I sick?  How come I slept so much?  Sleeping more than 4-5 hours a night was so unusual for me...and that night, I slept 8+ hours.   Okay, honestly- I though it was a fluke...and every night since then, I slept better and much more soundly. 

The increased energy, mental clarity and better mood - soon followed.

About a week later, I was walking into the kitchen, after giving my kids breakfast - and I still remember the look on my son's face.  He said, "mom - what's wrong with you...you are not limping?  Did you get healed?"

I then realized, for the first time in years, I was not limping in the morning.  A gradual change - but such a big change, that my son noticed a difference.

That day, I gave the product to my husband and asked him to start taking it.  At that time, he worked graveyard shifts and I knew he needed better sleep.   5-6 days later, he said he had the best sleep in his life.

Shortly, thereafter - he said he started to feel more energized, more mental clarity and more alert. 

That was in March of 2008 and the formulation has been a part of our lives, ever since.  In those days we forgot to take the product (or forgot to pack it on a trip) - it was horrible. Our energy went down, we didn't sleep and we lost mental focus. 

From 2008-2010, I was not a runner.  And when I began running, I was 48 yrs old. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE told me my knees, my hips, my back couldn't take the trauma of running. At one time, I was even a candidate for knee replacement surgery. 

I remember when I first started running....I went through all the normal aches and pains of a beginner runner.   I kept taking the product and I noticed that I recovered faster than most, even those who were younger than me. 

After the finish of my first Half Marathon - I immediately took the product and two days later, I was running a full tempo run.  Some may think I didn't run my first Half hard enough to hurt.  I ran a 2:11:54 - that isn't chump change for any runner, especially for a first race. 

Here I am as I crossed the Finish Line of my first race, with only 7 months of training.

I then went into 5K mode.  I was then 49 yrs old and recovery faster than most.  I was a very novice runner and my training was not on que.  Taking advice from inexperienced runners, I did injure myself in March 2011.  My recovery was significantly faster than one would expect. 5-6 weeks after my hip blow out - I was back on the course for a 5K and I blew away my previous 5K PR.  I went from a 38 min 5K to a 24 min 5K in 11 months.

To say the product has transformed my life and now, my running/racing is an understatement.  I didn't run in College.  The last time I ran competitively was in High School and that was the 100 yard dash.  I might not be the ultra speedster that many are - but I know I have solid races.  I know I can compete with women (and even men) who are 20 years younger and sometimes I even beat them.  This isn't about my skill or natural ability as a long distance endurance racer (I do not have a natural talent to run long distances).  My ability is the skill to keep my body strong & healthy.

Let me emphasis - I am almost 51 years old.  I remember when JFK was shot.  I remember seeing the First Man on the Moon.  I remember Watergate.  I remember the day we had our first color TV.  I am old enough to be some of my readers mother, and maybe even a Grandmother. 

This doesn't happen naturally.  It happened because I kept myself in the best HEALTH I could - with the Original Glutathione Formula. 

I went from a middle-aged, sedatary women to a 50+ year Award Winning Athlete who has run over 50 races in 2 years.  That is truly mind boggling.  I am the most surprised, by all of this.

I invite each of you - 20's,30's 40, 50's, 60's, 70's and older to consider the possibility of feeling like you did in your Youth.  How many of you want to sleep through the night?  How many of you want less aches and pains?  How many of you want to recover quicker from your workouts?  How many of you want to do it in a way that is backed by pending patents and years of research from a World-Renowned Physician and Scientist? 

When Dr. Keller passed away in 2009 - I made a vow that day.  To tell as many people as I could about his formula's and how they transformed my life.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think one day, I would wear a singlet and run a MARATHON honoring the company bearing his name.  When I put on that singlet before any race - I am humbled, that they selected me to represent his legacy.  I am so proud to be a part of this company and their family.

  1. I would like to try this product because for the past few years I have suffered from insomnia. As well as fatigue, aches, exhaustion, & much more. It has only gotten worse through the years & I have tried just about everything. Including taking 7 vitamins everyday. I am desperate to find SOMETHING that will help. This is something I have NOT tried, but would LOVE to give a try. Maybe THIS product is what my body NEEDS.

    1. So sorry, you are not the winner of the giveaway. Thanks for commenting!

  2. I would like to try this product because I have struggled with aches, pains, extreme exhaustion, etc. I find myself yawning all the time, even when running! I have spent hundreds of dollars on various supplements from the chiropractor, including vitamin b12, fish oil, pro cortisol balance, and more. At one point I was taking almost 20 supplements a day!
    I want to continue running and feel well on a daily basis.
