Glutathione is a key antioxidant that plays a role in detoxification and immune system. It is comprised of three amino acids found in every cell function. Glutathione injections help support immune system function, improve sleep & Burn Fat!
But exactly what does that mean and how can increasing glutathione levels benefit our health?
Glutathione is critical in protecting our immune system. It is produced in every cell and starts to decline with age along with the stress, poor diet, alcohol, lack of exercise, weaker immune system, chronic disease infections and exposure to toxins and taking certain medications.
The role of glutathione is to control and eliminate oxidative stress which causes inflammation.
Glutathione is often referred to by some as the “mother” of all antioxidants. Glutathione is destroyed faster than it can produce when we are exposed to toxic substances. Antioxidants prevent and repair the damage and inflammation caused by toxic substances. Glutathione is made up of three amino acids: glutamic acid, cysteine and glucine.
Glutathione, a natural compound, is found in the liver, as well as many fruits and veggies, such as garlic, onions and avocados, parsley and squash. It is a powerful antioxidant found in the liver that your body uses to remove free radicals from your body. The injection method is recommended because glutathione can’t be taken orally. Instead, it gets absorbed into your digestive system. Practitioners contend that this doesn’t provide the same detoxifying effects as the oral form.
Benefits of Glutathione Injections
Glutathione injections are used by doctors to detoxify the body from poisonous side effects such as chemotherapy. Glutathione is an excellent detox because of the free radical defense mechanism it gives cells. Glutathione injections have fertility benefits for men. This is often what is intramuscularly injected to boost sperm power.
A glutathione injection can also provide other benefits, such as fat-burning and disease fighting.
These results are very intriguing: greater energy, stamina and body detoxification. As well as clearer, healthier skin.
As with any healthy lifestyle, you’ll only see the benefits if your injections are consistent. The benefits of the treatment will gradually fade if you stop taking them. You’ll soon return to your normal state. Glutathione’s benefits are often visible after three weeks of treatment. The speed at which you notice improvement in your skin depends on how consistent you are with your treatments, your general health, your metabolism, and how fast you take your medications. Slower metabolisms will result in slower results.
It is administered as a muscle injection and not an IV. This allows you to complete your appointment in a matter of minutes. Both the injection and IV administration work equally well. For the best absorption we inject glutathione directly into the muscle, either in the upper arm (deltoid), or the buttocks(gluteal).
