IV Glutathione and IV Antioxidant Therapy
June 15, 2016
You have no doubt heard about antioxidants. These are powerful molecules that prevent or minimize oxidative stress that can be so damaging to cells, throughout the entire body. Think of oxidation as "rust" that can severely impact the function of any cell. Anti-oxidants are therefore critical to health. And one of the major antioxidants is Glutathione, sometimes referred to as GSH. According to Dr. Gustavo Bounous, “It’s the most important antioxidant because it’s within the cell.” In other words, Glutathione is in every cell working from the inside to protect it from decay.
Glutathione is produced by the liver but is also found in fruits, meats and vegetables. It has many important functions, not least of which is boosting the body's immune system. It is also plays an essential role in the functioning of the lungs, nervous and gastro-intestinal systems. It is also an important factor in the metabolism of several substances including iron. Glutathione is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins that are needed in the body, and for overall immune system function. Glutathione is such a key substance that some experts believe that the levels in your body might be a predictor of your lifespan.
Glutathione plays a key role in the immune system by promoting T-cell production. T-cells are processed in the thymus gland and aid in binding other immune chemicals to the cell. In short, they are important. Glutathione also helps us digest medications and makes them more effective by reducing the body's resistance to them.
Given all of the above you'll not be surprised to learn that Glutathione is used in a variety of ways. It can be taken orally, inhaled or infused as we do with our IV Glutathione Antioxidant therapy.
Glutathione can help with the following conditions:
- cardiovascular disease
- liver disease
- toxic poisoning
Glutathione is also inhaled to treat lung conditions like cystic fibrosis.
Our IV anti-oxidant therapy is a custom blend of multi-vitamins, electrolytes and Glutathione. It is a powerful way to boost your body's resources and minimize the damage of free radicals and oxidative stress that can damage and even kill cells all over your body. In fact our anti-oxidant blend includes a mega dose of Glutathione as well as a mega dose of Vitamin C.
