The best way to boost glutathione levels to optimal levels is through injectable supplementation.
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 can be reliably supplied to the body through intravenous therapy that bypasses the digestive system and delivers it directly to the body’s tissues.
• More energy
• Improved thought processes
• Brighter and Improved skin appearance
• Less pain in joints and muscles
• Stronger immune system
• Better sleep
• Slowing down the aging process
What is Glutathione
Glutathione is a key antioxidant found within cells in our bodies. When Glutathione levels are low, our body accumulates toxins, increasing the risk of many autoimmune diseases. The main purpose of Glutathione is to oppose oxidative stress which fuels a number of diseases and promotes aging. Glutathione has the ability to capture these free radicals while reactivating other antioxidant molecules in our bodies.
Intravenous Glutathione Treatment
Intravenous Glutathione allows us to achieve high levels of glutathione while bypassing the digestive tract and increasing the amounts available to your body. Glutathione helps your body produce red blood cells and is a good treatment post-stroke and various types of injuries.
Glutathione functions include: improving the immune system, repairing DNA, and detoxification of harmful substances such as pharmaceutical drugs, radiation, and many other toxins. Studies have shown that patients with autoimmune conditions and skin exanthems benefit greatly from Glutathione because it acts as an antioxidant and aids in the detoxification of toxin elements.
In addition, patients undergoing chelation therapy are often given Glutathione towards the end of their treatment in order to facilitate the removal of heavy metals and toxins from the liver and kidneys. Glutathione is already naturally occurring in our bodies, so when our detoxification system is burdened or being worsened by another process, it can help to give that extra push as an antioxidant.
Frequently asked questions
How often do you recommend the glutathione injections? We recommend receiving glutathione injections 1 to 3 times per week for optimal results.
Glutathione side effects are minimal and may include some cramping, bloating or a rash.
When speaking of glutathione’s effects on the skin, some patients see results like fewer breakouts and smoother texture in as little as two or three weeks. Others, such as those seeking a more even tone, need several months for the benefits to develop.
It is recommended to take glutathione injection 1-3 times per week for 4-8 weeks. Your response to the treatment will determine if you will continue taking the injection after this period.
Any sort of injection can cause bruising, so doctors recommend icing the area after receiving a glutathione shot (try using a cold pack for 10 to 20 minutes to reduce swelling). Once the needle is removed, though, you can likely get back to your daily activities, without any recovery time or medication. If you do happen to experience a slight headache or any pain, over-the-counter pain meds should help, but should be taken under the guidance of a doctor.
