What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant which is found in every cell in the human body. Antioxidants are important for good health because they neutralize free radicals, which can cause damage to cells. Glutathione also functions as an immune system booster. This substance can assist your body in repairing damage caused by stress, pollution, infection, poor diet, aging, injury and trauma. It also has substantial health benefits because it can be found in all types of cells. This included the cells of the immune system.
Sources of glutathione
Glutathione occurs naturally in many foods, and people who eat well probably have enough in their diets, especially if the diet is high in fresh fruits and vegetables and freshly prepared meats. However, a person with a poor diet may be obtaining too little glutathione.
What is the most effective method of glutathione supplementation?
Oral glutathione supplementation does not efficiently increase intracellular glutathione levels due to several reasons, the most prevalent being that it cannot be absorbed properly by the digestive system. It can, however, be absorbed into the blood stream by intravenous administration. So therefore the most effective way to absorb glutathione is through a drip.
Effects of glutathione
Glutathione has the effect of lightening complexion and treating uneven skin tone. This makes it a sought after aesthetic treatment. It has been highly sought after as a skin lightening treatment due to the fact that it is effective and does not harm the skin in the way that bleaching treatments do.
