Mother of all antioxidants-GLUTATHIONE
Glutathione is one of the most important molecules that help one to stay in healthy status. It recycles antioxidants, hence the name mother of all antioxidants. This master detoxifier helps not only to stay healthy, but also helps to prevent cancer, prevent aging and even help in treating many major diseases present today. When the glutathione level gets depleted, one can any longer protect themselves from infections or cancer. Depletion of glutathione will eventually lead us to a diseased condition.
The best news is that this maestro of immune system is synthesized in our own body from amino acids L- cysteine, L-glutamic acid and glycine called GSH precursor. All the cells in the body are developed such that they can create the Glutathione. The two states in which Glutathione exists is reduced (GSH) and in oxidized (GSSG) states.
USES OF GLUTATHIONE
DETOXIFICATION: Glutathione plays a major role in detoxification as the toxins stick to its chemical group sulfur – (SH) – a sticky and smelly molecule which is carried in to bile and reached out of body. When the toxins become overloaded on glutathione it is recycled in the body.
TUMOR: Increased levels of glutathione have proved to protect from the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
COSMETIC INDUSTRY: Glutathione has been used in cosmetic industry in products such as skin whitening soaps, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation creams. The mechanism of action of glutathione in cosmetic industry is that it inhibits the action of melanin synthesis by interrupting L-DOPA in the reaction between tyrosinase and L -dopa.
IN WINE MAKING: By trapping the caffeoyltartaric acid quinones, it determines the browning effect during the production of white wine.
MOLECULAR AND BIOLOGICAL ROLES OF GLUTATHIONE
As a mother in a family, A-Z control and responsibilities of a mother is endless and so is gluthathione in our body. Glutathione is used up in metabolic and biochemical reactions such as DNA synthesis, protein synthesis, prostaglandin synthesis, amino acid transport and enzymatic activation, metabolism of iron in the body. The main role includes brain buffering, toxin clearing escort, cell division and growth, DNA repair, enzyme catalysis, enzyme activation, metabolism of carcinogens, metabolism of xenobiotics, conjugation to heavy metals, enhancement of systemic immune function, resistance to UV radiation, decrease radiation damage, decrease oxy radical damage, metabolism of hydrogen peroxide, storage and transport of cysteine. Glutathione helps in the regulation of nitric oxide cycle.
WHO IS IN MORE NEED OF GLUTATHIONE?
Glutathione injection is mainly used for patients who suffer from cataracts and glaucoma, asthma, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s disease, inhaled for treating lung diseases, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, Cystic fibrosis, Lung disease with HIV disease, IV- Anemic patients, Kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis, Parkinson’s disease, Improving blood flow, Atherosclerosis patients, Diabetic patients, Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF GLUTATHIONE GOES DOWN IN MY BODY?
Even though glutathione is synthesized in the body certain factors like infections, stress, poor diet, pollution, toxins, trauma, and aging causes depletion of glutathione in our body. This depletion will ultimately lead you to overloaded and damaged liver, making it difficult and unable to do the detoxification process. Glutathione deficiency is mainly seen in people with serious health issues including heart diseases, cancer, chronic infections, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, kidney problems and liver diseases.
Glutathione injection includes glutathione- the mother of all antioxidants as the main ingredient. This is a perfect solution for those who are looking for maximum health and to boost up energy levels.

METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION OF GLUTATHIONE INJECTION
As glutathione is not easily absorbed in oral forms it needs to be injected into your muscle. Intramuscular injections are given directly into the centre of selected muscle. Three main sites that are commonly used for administration are Deltoid Muscle, Gluteus muscle and Gluteus medius muscle. Finalizing the site of injection depends on muscle density at each site. Wash your hands and site of injection well. Do not shake the vial; roll the vial back and forth. Carefully inject the syringe containing solution into the muscle perpendicular to it. Hold the syringe with one hand and see for any positive aspirations (blood entering to syringe while pulling the plunger back). If no blood oozes out, it is safe to inject the solution. Inject slowly the desired amount. Place a band aid over the site you have injected glutathione. It is important to have a demo from your prescriber or nurse before self injecting. Refer the patient’s information leaflet that comes along with the product before use.
OVERDOSE OF GLUTATHIONE: Injection form can easily form overdose resulting in kidney failure, diarrhea, blood poisoning, stomach pain and Stevens Johnson syndrome. Kindly consult your doctor if you a feel any sign of discomfort. Do not wait for the condition to resolve itself. Seek medical help immediately.
DOSAGE OF GLUTATHIONE: 30ml vials are for 1x daily injection.
This product might expire if you do not use 1x daily
STORAGE: It should be refrigerated. Kindly keep out of reach of children.
OTHER METHODS TO BOOST LEVELS OF GLUTATHIONE IN BODY
Consume sulfur rich foods – Garlic, onion broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Spinach, Asparagus, Avocados, Garlic, and raw tomatoes.
Daily Exercise – This will help in boosting immune system, improve detoxification and enhance body’s defense mechanism.
Methylation nutrients- Having folate and vitamin B6 and B12 will help in recycling and production of glutathione in body.
Selenium – Selenium is a mineral that helps in body recycle and has also helped in production of glutathione.
Vitamin C and E- These vitamins have proved to play a major role in recycling and in maintaining glutathione level.
Milk thistle – helps in boosting glutathione levels and limit exposure to toxins
Glutathione has been proven to be the powerful tool against free radical damage, serve in detoxification and increase energy levels and your overall health. No side effects have been reported. Kindly use the product before expiry date and return the product if it is open. Though the relation in pregnant women and nursing women is not yet proven, kindly avoid the use.
