Regarding glutathione, a popular antioxidant that is also very powerful, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that it not only fights cancer and a whole range of diseases but can help treat skin pigmentation issues. Patients from around the world have sought out knowledgeable practitioners to begin glutathione IV therapy to keep their internal bodies healthy, and their outer skin healthy-looking, too. The basic message is this; glutathione supplementation can help with many kinds of skin discoloration issues.
Examples of glutathione treating prevalent scarring, blotchiness, and even many symptoms of skin conditions related to inflammatory responses exist. Patients are beginning to use it as an alternative to skin lightening cremes, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other treatments. Treatments that might have harmful side effects in order to lighten skin to hide unwanted scar tissue or discolored blotches.
Studies pertaining to the benefits of glutathione as an antioxidant are easily found, however, in relation to its use in altering skin pigmentation, they are harder to find. While glutathione’s function in lightening skin tone is understood, its effects are not fully documented in a study where there are large numbers of people taking the antioxidant. Glutathione works to deactivate an enzyme that helps produce melanin, while also lightening the melanin that already exists in the skin.
It is easy to understand how beneficial glutathione is to regulate free radicals, but its impact on skin health can be better understood. It is used by some to reduce the harm from sunburns and solar radiation. It also has an impact on certain melanomas and skin tumors, reducing the risk of skin cancer. But this does not mean that people are missing out on the benefits of glutathione treatments for their whole body. For those with issues regarding psoriasis, scarring, and other pigmentation issues, glutathione is a blessing in disguise, contributing to a healthy body and skin complexion.
Lowered systemic inflammation is one supreme benefit. And since this systemic inflammation impacts the way someone feels, and looks, then it can have an even greater cumulative effect on personal health. Many glutathione IVs are also accompanied with a dosage of vitamin C, depending on the treatment used. But, there is one thing to plan on when considering a glutathione treatment, your schedule. It usually takes multiple visits when first beginning treatment for a lightened complexion. Then, maintenance treatments are required to maintain the desired results, as glutathione levels can decrease in the body over time.
Safely administering a powerful antioxidant, like glutathione, not only helps maintain bodily health but can also contribute to healthier looking skin. It is important to work with practitioners who are experienced in intravenous supplementation for safety.
