Glutathione IV

What is glutathione?

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant found mostly in the brain and liver. It can be administered as an IM shot or a push with an IV treatment. Glutathione is a key antioxidant found within cells in your body. When glutathione levels are low, your body accumulates toxins, increasing the risk of oxidative stress which fuels a number of diseases and promotes aging.

Because it improves your ability to detox and acts as an antioxidant, it can target carcinogens, toxins, drugs, alcohol, and heavy metals. A perfect solution to prevent or recover from a hangover or illness!

How often can you have glutathione injected/IV?

This can be given frequently. As much as 1 to 3 times a week, but most patients receive weekly glutathione IM or anytime they have an IV done.

Why an IM injection or IV as opposed to a pill form?

IV and IM glutathione allows you to achieve high levels of glutathione while bypassing your digestive tract and increasing the amounts available to your body..

Symptoms if you are deficient in glutathione:

When Glutathione levels are low, your body can accumulate toxins, increasing the risk of many autoimmune diseases and inflammation that can lead to a cascade of health problems. Some symptoms of severe deficiency may include anemia, the buildup of too much acid in the body (metabolic acidosis), frequent infections, and symptoms caused by problems in the brain including seizures, intellectual disability, and loss of coordination (ataxia).

What are the benefits of Glutathione?

Glutathione has a powerful package of benefits for both your skin and body. Once you get it and see how you feel, you’ll understand why it’s called the “Master Molecule”.

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 conditions benefit greatly from glutathione because it acts as an antioxidant and aids in the detoxification of toxin elements.

Some of the possible benefits of Glutathione:

  • Help with chronic illness and autoimmune problems. Glutathione uses its antioxidant powers to eliminate toxins (ingested and in your environment) and free radicals produced by toxins and emotional stress. This leads to a decrease in inflammation in your body that can help with chronic illnesses like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and autoimmune diseases and issues.
  • Slow the aging process with your body and skin. Glutathione spends a lot of time repairing damaged cells—particularly the ones that spur the aging process. This can result in tighter and brighter skin, and higher energy levels. Glutathione encourages mitochondrial growth, creating younger, more beneficial cells to replace the aging ones.
  • Help with hair and nails By removing free radicals from your body and encouraging mitochondrial and cell growth with glutathione, you’re promoting stronger hair and nails.
  • Boost athletic performance. If you want to reach your peak ability athletically, glutathione is one of the best supplements for it. It helps your body produce red blood cells to enhance performance and decrease incidents of muscle damage. It can improve your strength and endurance, encourage your body to make more muscle than fat, and reduce recovery times.
  • Reduce general inflammation. Free radicals love to congregate in your body, causing inflammation and damage. Glutathione’s tremendous antioxidant capability can fight the free radicals to reduce inflammation and repair damaged cells.
  • Detoxify your liver. Glutathione is most commonly found in your liver, where it helps to flush out any toxins that flow through and to get them out of your body more effectively.

What are the side effects with Glutathione?

While there are a few possible side effects with glutathione injections, they are rare. Most patients feel energetic and healthy after their injections.

Here are a few possible side effects:

  • Allergic Reaction. This could include itchiness, a rash, hives, chest tightness, shortness of breath and swelling of the throat, lips, mouth or tongue. If you feel that you are having an allergic reaction, get medical intervention as soon as possible.
  • Pain or tenderness at the injection site. Following the injection, it is possible to experience some pain and tenderness at the point of injection. The pain tends to go away quite quickly, however, if you are experiencing swelling, pain, and redness at the injection spot after a few days, contact a medical professional immediately. This could mean that you have an infection.
  • Mild abdominal cramping or loose stools. This is rare, mild and should self-resolve.
