Glutathione Injection is a popular skin whitening treatment that is highly effective. It is also a powerful antioxidant that boosts the immune system and increases energy levels. It is also believed to reverse aging and prevent cancer.
It is found naturally in our liver and in sulfur-rich foods like whey protein. But its levels can be depleted due to factors like pollution, overexposure to sunlight and smoking habits. Glutathione is an essential antioxidant that protects our cells from free radical damage and helps balance the amount of toxins and DNA-damaging compounds in our bodies.
Research by Baylor School of Medicine (4) revealed that people with low glutathione levels tend to have high insulin resistance and higher fat accumulation in the abdomen. However, the same study reported that those with high glutathione levels had lower insulin resistance and better body composition.
During the Glutathione IV Infusion, the doctor uses a special needle to pierce the vein in the arm and then injects glutathione directly into your bloodstream. The procedure is painless and similar to getting a vaccine shot. After the injection, you can resume your normal activity immediately. If you experience any discomfort, apply an ice pack to the area for 10-20 minutes.
The results from this nutrient therapy can be seen in as early as two weeks. However, the effect depends on a number of factors like your response and metabolism, and how consistent you are with the treatment.
