Glutathione in Carrollton, TX
Most people have probably not heard of glutathione, even though it’s one of the most important compounds found in the human body. Glutathione is an antioxidant. This means that it helps to protect cells from damage caused by cellular oxidation processes. These processes that involve oxygen result in waste products called free radicals. It’s these free radicals that can cause damage to cells that can result in:
- Premature aging
- Damage to DNA
- Skin and other cancers
- Inflammatory diseases
This is only a partial list. Glutathione helps to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals, eliminating or greatly reducing their dangers. There are other antioxidants, too, such as vitamins C and E, but glutathione is far more powerful. It is sometimes called the body’s master antioxidant. However, unlike vitamins, glutathione cannot be taken by mouth.
Glutathione is a fragile molecule, easily destroyed in the stomach and intestines. The body can manufacture the substance, mainly in the liver, from raw materials it gets from certain foods, such as chickpeas, pinto beans and spinach. But you’d have to eat a lot of these foods that many people don’t even touch. That’s why many people are also deficient in glutathione, especially as they age.
Glutathione can be reliably supplied to the body through intravenous therapy that bypasses the digestive system and delivers it directly to the body’s tissues. You may see the following benefits:
- More energy
- Improved thought processes
- Improved skin appearance
- Less pain in joints and muscles
- Stronger immune system
- Better sleep
Glutathione may also slow the aging process. We provide glutathione in Carrollton here at Skin Med Spa. We would like to discuss this therapy with you and help you understand how it may benefit you. We look forward to serving you.
