Glutathione Facts

Glutathione Facts

Glutathione is the body's strongest anti-oxidant

Glutathione is found in every cell in the body but it's most concentrated in the liver.  

Oral Gluthatione supplementation is not effective because of significant degradation of Glutathione in the digestive tract and even with newer, more absorbed preparations there are limitations in the quantity that can be ingested. 

Glutathione is made of the amino acids cysteine, glutamine and glycine so oral supplementation with acetylated cysteine ("NAC") can increase your body's production of Glutathione - it's the rate limiting amino acid for glutathione synthesis. So our Naturopaths often recommend oral NAC in between IV Glutathione treatments. 

Alterations in Glutathione status is implicated in aging. Increasing Glutathione status is thought to be helpful is slowing tissue deterioration and maintaining cellular integrity. Therefore, IV Glutathione can certainly be thought of as an anti-aging treatment which is why our Naturopaths often pair it with IV NAD at our Edmonton clinic. 

Orally taking Vitamin E, C, Selenium, as well as B6 & Magnesium can help maintain Glutathione levels in the body as well. So you may be recommended one or more of these if you are undergoing a series of Glutathione IV therapy.
