One of the most popular IV Therapy services here at Nenergy is our Vitamin Push with vitamin C and glutathione. We all know the wonderful health benefits of Vitamin C (especially during cold and flu season) but what about glutathione? At a molecular level, glutathione is a tripeptide containing three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid, and each of them offers a set of important health benefits. In the wellness community, glutathione is often referred to as “master antioxidant”,due to its ability to regenerate itself from the damage caused by free radicals – unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging. Glutathione lives inside of cells, which allows for protection of cellular damage by outside toxins or stress.
Here’s eight more reasons to love glutathione even more!
1. Reduces Oxidative Stress
Free radicals may contribute to aging and some diseases (making it a popular ask at all our Los Angeles locations). Antioxidants help to counteract free radicals and protect the body from their damaging effects.
2. May Improve Psoriasis
There is evidence that indicates Glutathione improved psoriasis without any additional treatment.
3. Reduces Cell Damage in Liver Disease
Studies have shown that glutathione could help treat alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease due to its antioxidant properties and potential to detoxify.
4. Improves Insulin Sensitivity
Insulin resistance can result in the development of type 2 diabetes. The production of insulin causes the body to move glucose (sugar) from the blood and into cells that use it for energy.
Studies have shown that people with insulin resistance tend to have lower glutathione levels, particularly if they have experienced complications, such as neuropathy or retinopathy.
5. May Reduce Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
Glutathione has a positive effect on symptoms such as tremors and rigidity, helping to reduce quality of life.
6. May Help Fight Against Autoimmune Disease
Autoimmune diseases attack the mitochondria in specific cells. Glutathione works to protect cell mitochondria by eliminating free radicals.
7. May Reduce Respiratory Disease Symptoms
In males, the deficiency of glutathione results in the dysfunction of the central part of sperm that ultimately results in the defective sperm movement. Glutathione protects the spermatozoa plasma membrane by forming a protective layer.
