Glutathione: The Elite Antioxidant
Antioxidants protect the body from free radicals and peroxides. The damage that is caused by those leads to numerous diseases. Based on the research we have done, free radicals are the reason for the unfavorable signs of aging.
The very first antioxidant discovered was vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid. Since then, it was the number one treatment for most health problems. That was the case for hundreds of years until glutathione was discovered.
What is Glutathione?
This antioxidant is naturally found in and produced by the liver. It can also be found in a number of food products – fruits, vegetables and even meat. Glutathione is so important in the body because it has several important roles. Being an antioxidant, it is responsible for neutralizing free radicals in the body. It is also involved in various biochemical and metabolic activities within the body (synthesis of proteins, DNA and prostaglandin, etc.). Studies also reveal that it is implicated in tissue repair, strengthening of the immune system and so many others.
Besides being responsible for so many processes within the body, it also boosts the function of other antioxidants like Vitamin C and E, especially when its quantity within the body has plummeted.
Believe it or not, this amazing antioxidant is currently used in the treatment of various diseases and disorders. It is said to treat eye conditions like cataract and glaucoma. It is also used in the cure of cardiovascular problems like atherosclerosis and respiratory diseases like pulmonary fibrosis. It has been found to decreases the risk of stroke.
One of the things which we are so ecstatic about is its capability in reducing the incidence of age-related problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and osteoarthritis. Nowadays, a lot of laboratories and research groups are checking into the possibility of Glutathione’s positive effect on HIV (AIDS) and cancer.
Although some foods have high content of this wonder substance, it is still not enough to contend with the free radicals which attack our body every single day. We believe that taking in supplements with bigger doses is really the best way.
The most common route is oral. Glutathione tablets and pills are sold online these days; a bottle usually contains 60 tablets. Intravenous Glutathione is often done three times a week. It is tremendously effective once done intravenously. We have had amazing feedback from our anti-oxidant and glutathione IV’s.
The IV push should be administered in a clinical setting. It is not as popular as the first two but this antioxidant is available in inhaler form. It is used in cases of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) cases like emphysema.
The Fountain of Youth
As mentioned earlier, we are convinced that the effects of aging are brought about by free radicals which can be found everywhere – from the air we breathe, the food we eat, and even from the sun which warms us up. But these free radicals are in a rampage especially in today’s immensely polluted environment.
Although glutathione is produced by our body, the amounts gradually decrease in adulthood. Again, this is due to the very poor lifestyle we keep and environment we live in. Therefore, everyone is advised to take this as a supplement.
One of our mottos is that your biological age should reflect how you look. We have several ways on how to combat physical aging. But one of the most effective really is glutathione therapy because it combats the root cause of it all.
The Dark Side of Glutathione
Perhaps the only problem with glutathione intake is that it is not approved by the FDA. However, they have categorized the supplement as safe. Besides, highly reputed medical spas such as ours have already made our own tests regarding glutathione use and conclude that it is definitely safe and effective.
Take note though that this is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding since there are not enough studies which state that it is safe for them. Glutathione inhalation is also not allowed for patients with asthma. We are certain that this may only make the condition worse.
