Glutathione

Powerful Antioxidant Boost

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant comprised of amino acids.  Your body creates it naturally.  Researchers have discovered that some diseases and inflammatory conditions are associated with low levels of glutathione.    These conditions include diabetes, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, liver disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other serious medical conditions.

Why Glutathione?

Your body creates glutathione with three simple amino acids:  Cysteine, glycine, and glutamate.  This molecule is a universal toxin binder that helps your body fight the production of free radicals.  It combats oxidative stress, a precursor to serious diseases.

Additionally, glutathione reduces cell damage caused by fatty liver disease, improves insulin resistance, and may improve circulation for those who suffer from heart disease.  Our glutathione injections or infusions are perfect for boosting your immune system, balancing hormone levels, and improving your health on a mitochondrial level.

Ensuring that your body has sufficient glutathione levels is key to maintaining wellness or regaining it while recovering from chronic illness.  Give yourself the detoxification, increased stamina, and health you deserve!

What is Oxidative Stress?

Glutathione’s primary use is to treat oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress occurs when your body has an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants.  While oxidative stress happens naturally as a part of aging, it can also occur as a result of diet, lifestyle, or even environmental stresses like pollution or radiation.

Symptoms of Oxidative Stress

As we mentioned, oxidative stress happens to everyone. While mild oxidative stress can be beneficial to the body, symptoms of long-term oxidative stress can be precursors to other more serious, chronic illnesses. Some of these symptoms include fatigue, memory loss and/or brain fog, headaches, worsening vision, muscle and/or joint pain, and susceptibility to infections. 

Risks of Oxidative Stress

Much of the damage caused by oxidative stress comes from changes made in the cell’s DNA. These changes cause mutations to occur.  When cell mutations occur, further cell damage and the potential for disease are at greater risk for happening.  Most people aren’t aware that their behavior and lifestyle are contributing to the effects of oxidative stress.  Conditions like alcoholism, obesity (particularly in high fat, high sugar diets), smoking, or even certain medications can all worsen the effects of oxidative stress on the body.

Glutathione Injection

The list of benefits of glutathione is lengthy and is often used to counter the effects of chemotherapy.  If a glutathione injection is the right option for you, treatment is given weekly.  Found naturally in fruits and vegetables, this useful molecule is also wonderful for boosting energy and immune function, as well as achieving brighter skin.

Glutathione injections are often used to combat the effects of cystic acne and other breakouts.  Some studies show that regular glutathione injections can reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give your skin a natural glow.  It reduces inflammation and gives you skin an evenly colored tone.  After just three weekly treatments, some patients report noticeably visible results.

Glutathione Infusion

Glutathione is known as the body’s strongest natural antioxidant.  In some cases, glutathione is given orally or as a nasal spray.  However, most health experts believe that intravenous infusion is the best way to ensure that glutathione is absorbed, which is especially important when treating chronic illness.

A glutathione infusion is administered once a month.  Additional benefits can include reduced inflammation, more energy, increased metabolism, clear-headedness, improved sleep, and may prevent your body from becoming resistant to other medications.
