Do You Have Thyme?

July 3, 2009 by  

Thyme appears in the ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes. The medical properties include: anti-aging, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic. The fragrance is helpful to fight fatigue and exhaustion after illness. It is good for fighting infectious diseases, it supports the liver and it may help strengthen your body’s ability to produce glutathione levels.

Why are glutathione levels so important?
These levels decrease with age and deficiencies may contribute to oxidative stress, which may play a major role in aging, and adding to diseases like Parkinson’s, liver, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, HIV, AIDS, cancer, heart attack and diabetes.
Glutathione is found in every cell and is a powerful antioxidant. It plays a part in gene expression, DNA and protein synthesis, cell growth and immune response.

Thyme is included in Young Living’s Longevity product, along with other essential oils that are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals.

Antioxidants help slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which can damage cells. The product tells you everything it does in the name: LONGEVITY.
