How to Take Glutathione Effectively

Antioxidants are good for you and your health. And glutathione, also known as the “master antioxidant,” may be the best of them all. 

Glutathione is a key component in mental and physical wellness at a cellular level because it helps create DNA. But it does much more than that, everything from strengthening the immune system to processing fats in the liver. It’s not surprising, then, that you feel the effects if you don’t have enough glutathione in your system.

But if you need glutathione supplementation, you want to do it in a way that will bring you the most benefits. IV therapy is effective for supplying your body with the glutathione it needs to maintain a vibrant sense of well-being.

What Is Glutathione?

Glutathione is technically called a tripeptide. That’s because it consists of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. Amino acids are used to make different types of proteins that are foundational to life itself.

Unlike several other types of antioxidants, glutathione is produced by your body, or more specifically, your liver. Unfortunately, your body may not be able to produce enough glutathione due to issues such as:

  • Age
  • Metabolic disorder (glutathione synthetase deficiency)
  • Infection
  • Stress

Low glutathione levels need to be addressed. To understand why, let’s answer the question, what does glutathione do?

Why Do We Need Glutathione?

Antioxidants like glutathione help the body in many ways, but combating oxidative stress is perhaps their most crucial role.

Oxidative stress is a form of free radical damage. We encounter free radicals when we’re stressed, drinking too much, or exposed to environmental pollution, toxins, or UV rays. If free radicals are left unchecked, the resulting oxidative stress can lead to:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Joint pain
  • Aging skin (lines, sagginess, dark spots)
  • Mental fuzziness or lack of focus
  • Chronic illness

Adequate levels of glutathione can prevent this kind of oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals. But that’s not all glutathione can do. Studies indicate glutathione has the potential to be used in treatments for:

  • Glaucoma
  • Heart, liver, or lung disease
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Asthma
  • AIDS
  • Osteoarthritis

What else is glutathione for? Here are some of the other benefits of the master antioxidant:

  • Immune system support
  • Improved sleep
  • Higher energy levels
  • Inflammation reduction, which helps with pain relief
  • Mental clarity
  • Detoxification
  • Diminished appearance of the signs of aging on your skin
  • Reduced body fat

There are many different ways to get more glutathione in your system. But what is glutathione’s best supplementation method? 

How to Take Glutathione Effectively

A healthy diet is one way to add glutathione, particularly dairy or sulfuric foods such as mushrooms, eggs, fish, meat, grains, garlic, kale, cabbage, and onions. Exercise may also be beneficial.

Glutathione supplementation can take the form of a pill, cream, capsule, or nasal spray. However, oral products lose potency while being digested and may not be truly effective at raising glutathione levels.

That’s when glutathione IV therapy can make a difference. Glutathione is included in sterile IV fluids, on its own or in combination with other ingredients. The fluids are then infused through a drip line inserted into an IV port in your arm. This allows the glutathione to be administered into your vein, where it immediately travels through the bloodstream and is effectively absorbed by your body for potent results. 

IV therapy is a quick, simple way to get more glutathione. An entire infusion session typically takes 45 to 60 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward. And because glutathione can be combined with other ingredients in an IV fluid, you get greater customization. (For instance, glutathione is a key ingredient in the Myers’ Cocktail IV, which also includes vitamins B12, C, and B Complex, as well as zinc and magnesium). What’s more, you can add glutathione to many of our different IV packages.

We’ve had clients order glutathione IVs for many reasons:

What Are the Side Effects of Glutathione?

Oral glutathione supplements can lead to cramps and bloating when used over a long period of time. But IV therapy avoids that issue because it doesn’t go through the digestive tract, so side effects are minimized. Anyone considering high doses of glutathione IV therapy, especially people who are pregnant or take medication regularly, should discuss it with their doctor before treatment.
