Glutathione Therapy Glutathione plays a key role in our health, well-being, cellular repair, and DNA maintenance, and is often called “the mother of all antioxidants.” Glutathione is a tripeptide consisting of glutamine, cysteine and glycine, and is produced naturally in the liver. This protein is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, so it helps to prevent cellular damage brought on by free radicals and peroxides, toxins, and heavy metals.
Glutathione improves cellular health and function, minimizing the damage caused to our body from free radicals and even helping to repair the damage caused after years of free radical effects.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY
By combating oxidative stress and free radical formation, glutathione allows rapid exercise healing, helps repair muscle injury, and helps to increase muscle strength and stamina.
Glutathione therapy helps to repair damage caused by inflammation and helps reverse the damage that caused the inflammatory response. Glutathione is frequently used to treat or prevent heavy metal toxicity.
ENERGY PRODUCTION AND CELLULAR METABOLISM
Glutathione plays a crucial role in mitochondrial health and function, which directly affects our energy producing capabilities, as well as cell signaling, cell death and cell growth, which directly affects the aging process.
Glutathione has been studied in preventing and repairing oxidative damage leading to neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, and has also been shown to decrease symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Glutathione acts as the body’s master antioxidant as well as enhancing the function of natural killer cells and T cells, which are essential for the body’s response to infection.
Increasing glutathione levels helps detoxify the body and reduce stress on the liver. This can help prevent chronic inflammation of the liver, which then can help to prevent fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.
Glutathione is administered as a small, intramuscular injection once or twice weekly. There are no known side effects, and studies show that injectable glutathione is superior to oral capsules.
