IV Glutathione Therapy
Glutathione is the body’s primary antioxidant and detoxifier. When the body has low levels of it, there’s an increase in vulnerability to toxins or risk of disease. Glutathione aids in the detoxification process. This detoxifier neutralizes metabolic wastes, prescription drugs, and other toxins and carcinogens. Additionally, it also plays a vital role in DNA repair and the immune response. Glutathione depletion is also associated with various diseases and signs of aging.
It’s possible to buy glutathione supplements at a health store. These supplements though may have little or no effect on the glutathione levels within the body due to poor absorption.
With IV Glutathione therapy, a high dose of glutathione quickly enters your bloodstream. This immediately floods your liver with essential detoxifying antioxidants. Specific nutrients improve wide-spread glutathione status. Some conditions though call for more intense doses, and this is achieved by administering it intravenously. Intravenous Glutathione bypasses the digestive tract for effective delivery to the target tissues. Glutathione has been called the mother of all anti-oxidants. Known for having excellent detoxifying effects and health benefits.
