Glutathione is known as the master antioxidant in the body and can become depleted in certain health conditions and naturally depletes as we age. Glutathione is a molecule that is a combination of the three amino acids glycine, glutamine, and cysteine. It is best administered as an IV infusion to make it readily available to the cells in your body.
Some of the therapeutic uses for glutathione therapy are:
– Predisposition to a glutathione deficiency
– Detoxification & increased oxidative stress
– Liver disease
– Metabolic conditions (e.g. Diabetes, Insulin Resistance)
– Neurological conditions (e.g. Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis)
– Anti-aging & optimizing athletic performance
– Inflammatory conditions
Our naturopathic doctors may recommend glutathione IV infusions as part of their treatment protocols. Additionally, glutathione can be nebulized (turned into a mist and inhaled) to treat many acute/chronic lung conditions.
