Notable Quotes

“At the end of the day, patients, you are in the driver’s seat. You got to take [your] health in your own hands, and you got to do things that’s right for you. We’re just advisors, or we’re just educators to the patients, letting them know what needs to be done correctly.”

                                                – Dr. Nayan Patel


Episode Summary

On the show, we talk about countless supplements, substances, and antioxidants that help us take back our health, and one antioxidant that we’ve mentioned a few times on the show but never really dove too in-depth into is glutathione. We know that’s it’s good for us and that it helps with the detoxification process in our bodies, but how exactly does glutathione accomplish that and what else does it do?

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to glutathione expert Dr. Nayan Patel to walk us through what exactly is glutathione, what it does, and how we can reap the maximum benefits from it. Dr. Nayan Patel is the founder of Auro Wellness, as well as an internationally recognized consultant and lecturer on all things glutathione.
