Glutathione is sometimes referred to as “the body’s master antioxidant”. Glutathione is built with three amino acids (L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine) that play a crucial role in our overall health, with some researchers even claiming that the levels of glutathione in our system may be a predictor in how long we are expected to live.
As a powerful antioxidant, glutathione is responsible for helping to protect against cellular damage and free radicals – helping to prevent infection and disease. Glutathione also plays a role in making sure other important antioxidants, proteins and enzymes can perform their own essential set of duties to help keep us healthy.
Low levels of glutathione in our body can make us more vulnerable to
- pre-mature aging
Glutathione is produced naturally in every cell of the body. Like so many other things, glutathione production slows as we age. However, aging is not the only thing that affects the levels of glutathione in our bodies. Other factors include stress, poor lifestyle and diet choices, and certain medications, among other things.
Oral supplements of glutathione are available. However, studies have found this to be an ineffective method for keeping glutathione at optimal levels. It is difficult for our bodies to absorb the needed amount to make an impact via oral injestion. However, injection therapy offers a safe and effective way for our bodies to accept and absorb this essential antioxidant into our systems.
With injection therapy, supplementation can offer several known benefits:
- protect the body against free radicals
- anti-aging properties
- helps detoxify the body
- promotes the health of nails, hair and skin
- fights inflammation
- increased energy
- strengthens the immune system
There are no known side effects of glutathione injection therapy.
Glutathione and Cancer
Glutathione levels are important for those battling cancer for a multitude of reasons. As an antioxidant, it is helping to remove toxins from our system. On a cellular level, glutathione keep healthy cells alive while causing malignant cells to die. It is also known to assist with chemotherapy treatments – aiding in the effectiveness of certain chemotherapy medications, such as cisplatin, while also helping to reduce their harmful side effects¹.
You do not have to be battling cancer to benefit from glutathione injections. Your body needs glutathione to maintain wellness, and low levels will take a toll on your immune system and it’s ability to perform at it’s best.
