What is Glutathione? Glutathione - The Mother of All Antioxidants

February 21, 2019
What is Glutathione? Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant which is made of three building blocks - cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. It is naturally produced in the human body. Glutathione is unique because once it is saturated with free radicals, it may help regenerate itself in the liver and immediately get back to work. Glutathione is available in different delivery methods at MedStudio. What does glutathione do in the body? Glutathione's job cleaning up free radicals is essential in preventing disease, reducing inflammation, protecting cells, and helping the body to age well. Glutathione supports the immune system. Studies suggest it may aid in preventing cancer by maintaining healthy cellular mitochondria and may assist in the treatment of AIDS. What are the benefits of Glutathione? A few benefits of how glutathione may help include:
  • reduced oxidative stress
  • improve psoriasis
  • reduce cell damage in fatty liver disease
  • improve insulin resistance
  • increases mobility for people with peripheral artery disease
  • reduces symptoms of Parkinson's disease
  • helps fight against autoimmune disease
  • may reduce oxidative damage in children with autism
  • reduces the impact of uncontrolled diabetes
  • may decrease respiratory disease symptoms (2)
Also, research has also shown high glutathione levels may increase strength and endurance, reduce recovery time, and decrease muscle damage. Studies show glutathione is able to change metabolism from fat production to muscle development. (1) How often should I get an IV Vitamin Drip? Although the body produces glutathione naturally, production decreases as we age. Excessive toxins and chronic illness can deplete glutathione levels. Consuming sulfur-rich foods such as garlic, onions and cruciferous vegetables increases your liver's ability to create healthy glutathione levels. These foods naturally boost your liver's ability to develop healthy glutathione levels. Research has shown supplementation with pills is less effective and therefore not recommended. The gastrointestinal tract interferes with optimal absorption. The preferred delivery method for glutathione supplementation is an IV drip. With a drip, glutathione enters directly into the bloodstream. Recommended frequency to receive an IV drip is 1-3 times per week for 4-8 weeks. Don’t miss out on all the benefits MedStudio has to offer  with IV Drip therapy and then live into your best life by feeling your healthiest.
