Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that has many health benefits. Antioxidants are our body’s solution for dealing with oxidative stress. Oxidative stress occurs when there is a disruption of the balance between the production of free radicals and the ability of naturally occurring antioxidants like glutathione in our bodies to neutralize and detoxify their harmful effects. A free radical is an oxygen-containing molecule that has unpaired electrons that makes it highly reactive with other molecules in the body. This reaction can be good but it can also be bad for the body because it can damage cells and their components i.e DNA, cell walls, protein, and lipids, which makes cells unstable. This instability can lead to neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular disease, and inflammatory diseases. Glutathione plays essential roles in the immune response, DNA repair, and the detoxification process that neutralizes drugs, chemicals, metabolic wastes, and other toxins. Its depletion is associated with disease and premature aging. The benefits of glutathione far outweigh any potential side effects that only occur with extremely high doses of glutathione.
Glutathione deficiencies may lead to depression, attention and cognitive deficiencies, cancer, premature aging, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, recurrent infections, irritable bowel, diabetes, glaucoma, AIDS, inflammatory conditions, and brain diseases.
IV Glutathione Benefits Include:
Protects cells from damage
Anti-aging skin benefits
Slows premature aging
Skin lightening and brightening
Decrease skin lines and wrinkles
Improve acne and uneven skin tone
Improves the immune response
Aids in the detoxification of drugs, environmental toxins, metabolic waste, and carcinogens
Protects and repairs the liver

There are no known side effects when glutathione is administered within therapeutic dosages but side effects like kidney and liver problems can occur when doses over 15 grams of glutathione are given.
