Everything You Need To Know About Glutathione IV Drips
In a conversation with Maysa Zureikat, a health and wellness coach, she explains everything we need to know about glutathione drips.
What Is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a molecule produced naturally by the body, specifically in the liver and nerve cells, and it is a combination of three amino acids: L-cysteine, glycine, and L-glutamate. It is the most prevalent antioxidant that our body produces, and healthy levels are critical to safely excrete toxins and estrogen. Glutathione levels may be affected by many factors, including lifestyle, exposure to stress, hormonal imbalances, poor nutrition, environmental toxin, aging, and menopause. These factors affect how much we have and how much we need.
Why Do We Need It?
For The Body:
Glutathione is the best immune system booster that helps restore the body’s natural antioxidants which restore the body’s natural capacity to heal, energize and care for itself. It is the best liver detox, as it cleanses it from toxins, stress, and impurities. So basically, it’s the first step to check when starting a detox. Glutathione reduces oxidative stress and inflammation which help regulate your cycle. It also helps with weight loss from its ability to help your body shift from fat production to muscle development.
For The Skin:
If radiant, glowing, and luminous skin is what you are after, think no further than glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant, much like vitamin C, it works by breaking down the pathway involved in causing pigmentation, thus brighten the skin. Also, the fact that it helps the skin against oxidative damage means fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
It takes at least 3 weeks before you will begin to see effects on your skin. The more dark your skin is the more time it needs to get whiter.
How to Increase levels of Glutathione In your Body?
As mentioned above, glutathione is produced by the body. Exercising, consuming foods that are rich in sulfur (beef, fish, poultry, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, watercress, and mustard green), selenium (beef, chicken, fish, organ meats, cottage cheese, brown rice, and Brazil nuts), glutathione (spinach, avocados, asparagus, and okra), and vitamin C (Strawberries, citrus fruits, papayas, kiwis, and bell peppers), getting enough sleep alongside getting supplements with whey protein are all great ways to protect glutathione levels naturally.
Alongside the natural ways, you may need to resort to other ways to up your levels like taking it intravenously, topically, or as an inhalant. It’s also available as an oral supplement in capsule and liquid form. However, oral ingestion of glutathione may not be as effective.
What Do We Need To Know About Glutathione IV Drips?
One of the most powerful ways to increase its levels is through glutathione IV drips. The drips contain a high dosage of glutathione with a mixture of fluids, antioxidants, and vitamins. The great thing about these drips is that they are delivered intravenously into the bloodstream allowing 100% absorption. The drip takes between 30 – 60 minutes to be completely delivered into the bloodstream.
