Glutathione is a super-charged antioxidant, consisting of three amino acids, which is vital to some of your most important bodily functions. Glutathione is produced by every cell in the human body and it plays a critical role in a number of cellular processes. It is absolutely essential for maintaining a healthy and fully functioning immune system.
To understand just a fraction of why glutathione is such an important and effective antioxidant, it helps to learn about free radicals and their potential negative effects on the body. Free radicals are really toxins, or outside elements like cigarette smoke, pesticides, car exhaust and environmental pollutants. However, even stress can cause free radical damage.
Free radicals have been linked to visible signs of aging like wrinkles and loss of skin firmness, and even life-threatening problems like increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Fighting off free radicals can also lead to decreased energy levels and sluggishness.
In small amounts, free radicals aren’t likely to do much harm. However, if you are exposed to environmental factors and chronic stress on a consistent basis, they can lead to serious symptoms and health issues.
Glutathione is the most potent free radical fighter that you produce naturally. When the human body makes enough of it, you have the ability to fight off free radicals caused by everything from cigarette smoke to smog.
When Glutathione is not present in the optimal amount however, or when environmental factors are too stressful for the body to defend against, free radicals can cause both internal and external damage. To combat this, and harness the incredible total body-rejuvenating power of Glutathione, our doctors recommend boosting your level with nutrition and supplementation via nutrient IV therapy. This can help you restore the proper balance, keep your body functioning at its best, and eradicate free radicals before they have a chance to do any harm.
Foods high in this powerful antioxidant include meat, avocado, onions, garlic, broccoli, kale, cabbage, and cauliflower, and some whey proteins. Exercising also helps boost Glutathione. When increasing your Glutathione from your diet and exercise is not enough, we offer two extremely potent nutrient IV infusions (bFortified & bCharged) with optimal levels of this natural super power. These can be added as a 5 minute push to the end of any of our regular IV treatments, or taken on their own for a fast, efficient Glutathione boost.
