Glutathione: The Super Antioxidant

Glutathione is an amazing antioxidant that is produced in our body and is capable of preventing damage caused by free radicals, peroxides, and heavy metals.

As we age, our body’s glutathione level decreases. Other reasons for depleted levels include a diet lacking fruit and vegetables, stress, lack of sleep, alcohol intake, chronic disease and infection.

Good sources of glutathione include onions, garlic, avocados, cruciferous vegetables, okra, asparagus, and watermelon. Although dietary glutathione is not fully absorbed by the body, consuming foods that are naturally high in glutathione may help decrease oxidative stress.

Other factors to consider are your vitamin C and whey protein intake. Vitamin C plays a vital role in maintaining your body’s glutathione level and whey protein is a good source of the amino acid cysteine, which helps regulate glutathione production.

An IV infusion of glutathione delivers the powerful antioxidant directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract, assuring it’s absorption.

An added bonus of glutathione is brightening and lightening of the skin by helping erase hyper-pigmentation and reducing inflammation.

Giving our body the best chance at fighting oxidative stress and aging should include a good regimen of glutathione. Try an IV boost of this super antioxidant. Your cells will thank you.
