Most of the IV therapies available at Restorative Medicine can also be given through injection, including their Glutathione injections. A Glutathione IV treatment is a powerful antioxidant agent that clears toxins and heavy metals out of the bloodstream. Injections of this bonding agent work similarly but are faster to administer. The effects of a Glutathione injection just won’t be as long-lasting.
A Glutathione shot is made up of compounds found naturally in your body. Glutathione is produced by the liver and has amino acids that stimulate the immune system, helping it go after toxins. Glutathione molecules bind with free radicals, unstable molecules that roam the body looking to do damage. Glutathione binds with these free agents and then escorts it out as waste, like urine. This is especially healing if there is an overabundance of mercury, lead or other dangerous metal or toxin.
What is Glutathione?
There is little difference between a Glutathione IV and Glutathione shots, just the amount used and method of insertion. Of course, an IV it goes directly into the bloodstream by inserting a needle with a tube into a vein. An injection is a needle that delivers a boost of Glutathione into a muscle group, where it will be processed into the bloodstream through tissue. Both are more potent than a pill supplement which is digested in the intestinal tract, which dilutes the pill’s potency. Glutathione is also known as GSH and is made up of three amino acids, glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid, all created in the liver. The synthetic version of this compound mimics the toxin fighting abilities of the organic version of the substance. GSH is often depleted due to extreme toxicity caused by processed foods, environmental pollution, or substance abuse, to name a few.
What are the Benefits of a Glutathione Injection?
Studies have shown that extreme toxicity, an elevated level of mercury, for example, responds well to Glutathione treatment. Love sushi or fish? You could have elevated levels of mercury. In other cases, a person may get exposed to lead that exists in paint or dust particles in older buildings. Typically a diet of fresh foods rich in vitamins, like deep greens, would flush these toxins out. However, if Glutathione production has slowed, or the body is run down, there may not be enough of this antioxidant agent to get rid of them.
The benefits of Glutathione treatment are mostly in the long-term. The existence of antioxidants may not be highly problematic for now. However, over time, they roam the body looking to bind with molecules in your organs, which affects the cells in those organs. This is how organs begin to malfunction. Also, cell activity can be stimulated by toxins and start generating diseased cells rather than healthy ones.
What Conditions Do Glutathione Injections Treat?
Glutathione injections are fast-acting, toxin elimination treatments. Anyone who has ingested any toxic metals through dust, pollution, poor air quality, or foods with high levels of pesticides or preservatives, can benefit.
A blood test can reveal what kinds of free radicals are circulating. Also, testing liver and other organ functions can indicate if there is a problem being caused by free radicals or oxidative stress. This is when there are more free radicals than agents that can flush them out. Glutathione binds to free radicals and gets rid of them. This treatment is effective for systemic issues like psoriasis, fatty liver disease, or insulin resistance. Glutathione can also support recovery from alcohol, or substance abuse, which causes extreme toxicity. It is also used to reduce symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, or autoimmune disorders. Be advised that Glutathione also has a skin whitening effect.
