Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS): Glutathione and the Methylation Cycle

Rich Van Konynenburg, Ph.d., an independent researcher, believes glutathione depletion causes many of the problems in ME/CFS.

Glutathione is the master anti-oxidant in the body.  Besides being involved in scavenging free radicals and degrading a wide variety of toxins glutathione plays a role in amino acid transport, protein synthesis, the cell cycle and immune cell proliferation.

These papers by Rich Van Konynenburg examine ways to enhance glutathione, detoxification and energy production in ME/CFS. (For the underpinnings of Rich’s theory see the Research Section)
