Glutathione is an important antioxidant that our body uses in it’s daily detoxification processes, helping to keep our cells, tissues and organs young and healthy. Our cells (primarily in our liver) produce glutathione naturally, but the extra toxicity of the modern world means our cells can’t keep up with the demand. Oral supplementation is ineffective because glutathione in pill form is destroyed during digestion, but glutathione IV therapy bypasses the digestive system and ensures glutathione gets straight into the cells where it is needed most!
Know as the most important antioxidant in the body, glutathione is an essential antioxidant manufactured in all cells, but primarily in the liver. It is essential because it is used during your liver’s natural detoxification processes to actually grab the toxic compounds in your liver and shuttle the toxins out of your body via urine or bile. If you don’t have enough glutathione the toxins get backed up, leading to a number of issues from weight gain to disease to possibly even cancer.
But escorting toxins out of the liver isn’t glutathione’s only job. It is essential in fighting cellular oxidation – which is essentially rust inside our bodies, causing many of the signs and symptoms we associate with aging! Glutathione prevents this “rust” from forming, keeping us looking and feeling younger.
A number of factors are at play – poor nutrition and processed foods, excess stress, environmental toxins, cleaning supplies and chemicals, and drinking alcohol all tax our supply of glutathione. Glutathione production also slows down as we age.
Glutathione is actually a protein made up of 3 amino acids. When taken orally, this protein gets broken down into it’s amino acids, just like any protein molecule, so the complete antioxidant doesn’t really make it out of digestion intact.
IV glutathione provides the ideal solution. Glutathione IV therapy delivers intact glutathione straight into the blood stream, bypassing the digestive system altogether. This allows your body to immediately funnel the glutathione to where it needs it most.
