What are the Uses of Glutathione Supplement?

Glutathione is also known as the mother of all antioxidants. It helps cleanse our body of toxins and increases our capacity to fight diseases.

Glutathione is a peptide produced by the body and found in every cell of our body, especially immune cells. The source of production in our body consists of three basic amino acids. These are known as cysteine, glutamate and glycine.

Glutathione production is present in the body under normal conditions. However, as this amount decreases, especially with advancing age, some of its beneficial effects may decrease. Significant benefits are seen from glutathione supplementation, especially in people with certain chronic diseases and in people with age-related low energy and mental slowdown.

Since the absorption of orally taken glutathione supplements is not at the desired level, the supplement must be given directly as an injection or serum.

What are the uses of glutathione supplements?

Glutathione helps many body functions function properly because it acts as a very serious antioxidant. But if we talk basically about the effects of glutathione, the following elements will come to the fore:

⦁ Helping us fight diseases by contributing to the immune system
⦁ It neutralizes the enzyme that produces skin pigment by turning melanin into a lighter color, especially in people with skin pigmentation disorders (e.g. body and under-eye dark circles). This makes the skin appear brighter and lighter in color.
⦁ Reducing inflammation caused by chronic diseases in the body
⦁ Contributing to breaking down fats in the body
⦁ Reducing the low energy and mental confusion observed with aging
⦁ Reducing oxidative stress, especially seen in cases of heart attack and stroke

Although problems such as weakness, fatigue, sleep disorders, concentration disorders and joint pain stand out as symptoms of glutathione deficiency, there are also many chronic diseases directly related to glutathione deficiency. These manifest themselves in conditions such as autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia and skin disorders.

Are there ways to increase my glutathione levels?
Some foods and vitamin supplements contribute to glutathione production. However, since the effect taken with oral preparations will be restrictive, glutathione used directly as IV infusion or injection will have a much faster effect and create a clear difference. In general, preparations such as vitamin C, selenium, curcumin, NAC and glycine contribute to glutathione production.

Are there any side effects of glutathione treatment?
Although elements such as bloating and changes in bowel movements have been reported in oral supplements, gastrointestinal side effects are not expected since the glutathione infusion taken in the form of serum completely bypasses the digestive system and delivers the antioxidant directly to your cells. The majority of patients receiving IV glutathione therapy have no side effects. Its rapid detox effect may cause some headaches, nausea and mild body aches in some people. These are side effects that will pass in a short time.

It can be said that glutathione generally does not have many side effects. However, as with every drug/treatment, some side effects, although very rare, may be possible. These:

  • Cramping and bloating
  • allergic reactions
  • low zinc levels
  • Toxicity of the nervous system
  • Kidney and liver toxicity
  • Headache
  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome (a serious but rare disease affecting the skin, mucous membranes, genitals and eyes)

What Happens After Glutathione Treatment?

Glutathione infusion should not be viewed as a single-dose treatment. It is a practice that will provide maximum benefit when applied approximately once a week for a total of 2-3 months.

Even when a single dose is taken, an immediate increase in energy level is expected. However, anti-aging effects, strengthening of the immune system and skin whitening effect will be observed at maximum benefit level in approximately 2-3 months.
