"The Master Antioxidant"
Glutathione is an important substance found in every cell in the body, where it acts as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage. Scientific research has demonstrated glutathione’s importance for humans by showing that cellular glutathione levels are an excellent predictor of life expectancy. This has led many to understand that optimally regulating glutathione levels in the body is an excellent anti-aging method, and promotes overall health. By eliminating free radicals from the body, glutathione is able to protect many of the body’s systems from disease and deterioration. Due to its wide range of biological uses it is essential to prevent glutathione levels from becoming low. Unfortunately, natural glutathione production can be easily disrupted, and stores in the body can quickly become depleted by the effects of poor diet, stress, aging, medications, infections, radiation, and other toxins. Having a medical doctor help regulate your body’s glutathione levels can do wonders for maintaining and improving your health. Not only does Glutathione promote health internally, it is also an excellent substance for rejuvenating and lightening skin. Many individuals supplement with glutathione in order to receive its amazing cosmetic benefits for skin health.

Methods of Administration
Intravenous supplementation of reduced glutathione is the gold standard for administering high levels of glutathione and regulating levels in the body. Due to glutathione’s molecular makeup it is light sensitive and proper precautions must be made to prevent light exposure during administration of the substance. The fact that reduced glutathione is such a reactive substance it is best to use an ‘IV push’ rather than an ‘IV drip’ to facilitate better and faster absorption into the bloodstream. Many of the positive effects o fa Glutathione push are often felt within 3 hours of administration.
Intramuscular and Subcutaneous injections are also quite effective; however, they must be administered in smaller doses than intravenously.
Oral administration of glutathione alone is thought to be ineffective for altering glutathione levels due to hydrolysis during digestion and poor absorption.
