Your longevity guide to Gamma-glutamyl Transferase. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is Gamma-glutamyl Transferase?

Gamma-glutamyl Transferase (GGT) is an enzyme found in various tissues throughout the body, with particularly high levels in the liver. GGT plays a role in the metabolism of glutathione, an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. 

When liver cells are damaged or inflamed, GGT is released into the bloodstream, where it can be detected through blood tests. Elevated levels of GGT in the blood are often indicative of liver dysfunction or damage, although high levels can also be associated with other health conditions. 

How it’s related to your healthspan

GGT levels are closely related to your healthspan, because they serve as a marker of liver health and overall oxidative stress in the body. 

Elevated GGT levels can indicate liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fatty liver disease, as well as other health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome. Chronic elevation of GGT levels is associated with an increased risk of developing serious health conditions that can impact healthspan, including liver disease, heart disease, and certain cancers. 

Monitoring GGT levels can help identify liver dysfunction and oxidative stress early, allowing for interventions to prevent further damage and maintain overall healthspan.

How to optimise your Gamma-glutamyl Transferase levels

Optimising GGT levels involves lifestyle changes aimed at promoting liver health and reducing oxidative stress in the body. 

Adopting a balanced diet rich in antioxidants such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds can help protect liver cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. Limiting your consumption of alcohol, processed foods, sugary beverages, and saturated fats is important to reduce liver inflammation and damage. 

Regular physical activity, such as aerobic exercise and strength training, can improve liver function and reduce oxidative stress throughout the body. 

Poor sleep quality can increase oxidative stress levels and contribute to liver dysfunction. Prioritising good sleep habits can go a long way in keeping your liver healthy.

Managing stress through relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and seeking support from mental health professionals can also help reduce oxidative stress and promote liver health.
