One of the reasons it’s so wonderful is that it not only fights free radicals (particles in the cell that bombard and damage the cell), but it helps other antioxidants work better. Free radicals are combated by antioxidants throughout the body, but as you age, the free radicals are able to do more harm. The damage that free radicals produce is a major cause of many diseases that people experience later in life or when they are immune compromised. Even still, glutathione works against the free radicals and helps rid the cells of them.
Glutathione enhances immune cell activity, which in turn, helps fight inflammation and aids in healthier cells, ultimately improving the immune system. Individuals with autoimmune conditions such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, HIV and chronic conditions benefit form IV glutathione greatly as they tend to be depleted and in need of mor support to help the immune system function optimally. Those with higher levels have seen less infection when dealing with these health issues. The immune system gets a tremendous boost from glutathione and it is vital for good health.
Higher levels of the antioxidants allow people to recover quicker from exercise and extreme stress and helps prevents rapid cellular aging. In addition, exercise can help stimulate glutathione production, aiding in the cycle to help prevent further health issues down the road. With the increased production of glutathione, the risk for immune issues, impaired detoxification and long term, chronic illness is reduced significantly.
With all of these benefits, it is no wonder that IV glutathione is called the “master antioxidant” by so many.
One well known advantage of glutathione is helping in the detoxification process. Everyone is exposed to harmful toxins in almost everything they do, whether it be exhaust from a cars, chemicals coming from construction projects, work related chemical exposure, and radiation exposure. Glutathione works with the liver in order to boost the detoxification process and rid harmful toxins safely and effectively.
