Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Molybdenum/Glutathione Complex

Chem-Defense is a synergistic nutrient blend formulated for the specific dietary needs of persons with chemical sensitivities. Recent scientific research indicates that molybdenum, a trace mineral which activates the enzymes aldehyde oxidase and sulfite oxidase, may provide necessary nutritional support for chemically sensitive individuals. Glutathione (GSH) is a key element of the liver's detoxifying process. Coenzymated vitamin B-2 is the precursor for FAD, a coenzyme which recycles used GSH. The benefit of the sublingual form is that it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels under the tongue and in the cheeks, allowing for quick entry into the system.

Suggested Use

1 to 3 tablets daily. Place tablet under the tongue and allow to dissolve slowly, altering the position of the tablet to avoid prolonged contact with the same area.

Other Ingredients

Sorbitol, mannitol, natural peppermint flavor, and magnesium stearate.

Warnings

If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult your health care professional before using this product.

Do not use if either tamper-evident seal is broken or missing.

Thumb down on Peppermint

Posted by Reviewer3023221 on Sep 16, 2015

Not sure if this is doing anything but can tell you the peppermint flavor is yuck!

Chemical sensitivities helped

Posted by Reviewer1599966 on Feb 09, 2013

Chem-Defense has helped my chemical sensitivities. I take it on an as needed basis plus a couple of other times a week. If I remember to take before shopping at a store, I often have no symptoms (headache, overwhelming fatigue, nausea, etc) or much reduced symptoms with a quicker recovery time. I have even forgotten to take it before going to shop and then taken it when I got home and my recovery was expedited. It's true the taste isn't great, but it's tolerable for me since it works so well in reducing debilitating symptoms. Be sure to allow it to dissolve slowly under the tongue. It's designed to absorb through the tissues under the tongue. Much of the benefit is lost if it is chewed.

Taste is just nasty!

Posted by PurplePegasus on May 21, 2012

It tastes more of orange than peppermint and it is just an awful, bitter taste. I tend to crunch it to make it go down faster, it's really terrible! I have no idea if it does anything. I have MCS and bought it to see if it helps with toxic chemical attacks wafting from neighbors but the truth is, every time that has happened I get so angry and irritable and panicked all at the same time that I forget to take this! I also read that molybdenum is supposed to help the liver so trying to take this daily to further help my liver detox.

Good alternative. Too bad about the taste

Posted by Reviewer1122052 on Jul 05, 2011

It was a good try for a sublingual form of gluthathoine and the price of the product is also very reasonable. Unfortunately, the tart taste of the gluthathoine is still over powering for me and the peppermint flavour hasn't been able to mask it well enough. Aside from that, if others are able to tolerate the taste, this is a very good alternative for consuming gluthathione. As we know it's poorly absorbed in the digestive tract so gluthanione in capsule or pill form will unlikely work. If you can't afford intravenous glutathione injections, or would rather not take NAC, then sublingual seems to be the only way left.
