My Weekly Dose Of IV Glutathione

Obviously I am vain. And since I am Filipina, I share the sentiments of most girls who want that whiter, clearer and glowing skin!!! Ideally I should be getting IV Glutathione weekly but because of sheer laziness and of course, my sister's busy schedule, I've been receiving it once every 2-3 weeks. Unlike, the diamond peel which I've learned to do on my own, it's impossible for me insert the needle through my vein on my own! ha!ha!

So anyway, what is glutathione?

Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant. It is a small protein produced naturally in our cells when certain required elements are present. It functions both as an antioxidant and an antitoxin and is a major defense system against illness and aging.

Glutathione has been shown to slow down the aging process, detoxify and improve liver function, strengthen the immune system, and reduce the chances of developing cancer. Glutathione also works to help improve mental functions, increase energy, improve concentration, permit increased exercise, and improve heart and lung function.

Skin whitening is a side effect of oral or intravenous glutathione (IV route is preferred for faster results) over the skin pigment, melanin , which is responsible for skin color and tone. Glutathione reduces stimulation of melanin which leads to a whiter skin tone or color. Effects for whitening will depend on patient's skin pigmentation . Visible effects of skin tone change are usually noticeable after the third to fourth sessions of intravenous injection of glutathione.
