Available as a stand alone therapy or an add-on to any IV Therapy for an additional $50.
Glutathione is a protein called a tripeptide – a molecule composed of three amino acids. It is a potent antioxidant and quenches dangerous free radicals. It also binds to dangerous toxins through a process called “conjugation” so that they can be safely eliminated.
Oral glutathione is not very stable; stomach acid and enzymes break it down (into its three component amino acid parts), rendering it useless. Therefore we have to use IV glutathione to ensure effective delivery.
Glutathione, also referred to as “the body’s most powerful antioxidant”. Your body produces its own Glutathione; however, poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, aging, and infections all deplete your body’s glutathione levels. This can reduce the liver’s ability to detoxify your body. Glutathione has also been shown to be beneficial in DNA repair, protection of skin elasticity, and slowing the aging process.
Use in Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis
In Parkinson’s disease, dopamine-producing neurons in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra die off as a result of free radical-based oxidative damage. Researchers observed that a high proportion of Parkinson’s patients are deficient in glutathione. Glutathione protects against oxidation by free radicals. Clinical studies now clearly demonstrate that IV glutathione significantly improves Parkinson’s symptoms, and may very well retard progression of the disease.
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic neurodegenerative disease in which the neurons are stripped of their myelin. This inflammatory process leaves lesions called plaques throughout the neurons in the spinal cord and brain. The inflammation is also thought to be caused by free radicals. A wealth of experimental evidence shows that glutathione is severely depleted in the brains of MS patients, making repletion with IV glutathione a rational therapeutic approach.
