What is Glutathione Therapy ?

Glutathione is a substance composed of three amino acids: glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. Our bodies naturally produce Glutathione, but Glutathione reserves in the body may reduce in time due to age, poor nutrition, stress and exposure to heavy metals. 

When the Glutathione levels in our bodies reduce, we can choose to receive a Glutathione treatment. Some options for taking Glutathione are Glutathione injections, also known as Glutathione iv (intravenous) therapy, and oral supplement. Doctors can give it topically or as an inhalant. 

A Glutathione treatment takes one or two sessions a week for five to eight weeks. You pay for each session, and one session costs around $60 in Turkey. 

Glutathione injections support tissue building and repair and boost the immune system. Glutathione plays a role as an antioxidant, which protects our bodies from the damage caused by free radicals. 

Glutathione injections may cause some side effects like skin rash and bruise. There are no severe side effects of this treatment. 


What Are The Benefits of Taking Glutathione Injections?
 

There are several benefits of taking Glutathione injections. Glutathione injections may:

  • Build and repair tissue

  • Produce proteins 

  • Regulate the immune system 

  • Reduce oxidative stress, which may cause multiple diseases like diabetes and cancer. 

  • Because Glutathione injections may improve protein, enzyme and bilirubin levels in the blood, they can also reduce cell damage in fatty liver disease. 

  • Reduce oxidative damage and so treat some symptoms of autism.  

  • Control oxidative stress in patients with diabetes and reduce the impact of the disease. 

  • Improve insulin resistance and fat burning in older patients. 

  • Help fight against depression by regulating oxidative stress. 

  • Reduce inflammation and support the treatment of respiratory diseases like asthma and cystic fibrosis. 

  • Reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, such as tremors and rigidity. 

  • Help cells heal and regenerate themselves and slow down aging. 

  • Work as a skin whitening agent. 


Who Cannot Use Glutathione Injections?
 

Glutathione injections are not safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Children under five and patients with cancer cannot use Glutathione injections. 


Risk and Side Effects
 

There are no severe risks or side effects of the Glutathione injection procedure. Skin rash and bruising are the common side effects of the injections. 

The results of the Glutathione injections will be noticeable within three weeks. 

Glutathione treatment options may help lighten skin color, but there isn't sufficient research about Glutathione's role as a skin whitening agent. 


What Does Glutathione Do For The Body?
 

This precious substance plays multiple roles in our systems. Some significant functions of Glutathione are: 

combatting free radicals
regenerating vitamins
building blocks of proteins and cells
supporting the immune system
forming sperm cells
transporting mercury out of the brain

A Glutathione injections procedure takes about twenty minutes. The doctor gives the serum through an intravenous injection in the office.  


Do Glutathione Injections Cause Any Pain?
 

Glutathione injections may be slightly painful when the doctor inserts the needle into your skin.
