Glutathione West Palm Beach Gardens

Glutathione (GSH) in West Palm Beach Gardens is a highly beneficial peptide for the health of the cell and the body’s organs. Glutathione is involved in free radical neutralization, detoxification, and maintenance of cellular redox. Glutathione depletion has been linked to different diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Bipolar disorder, and many other conditions.
Levels of Glutathione in cells may predict how long an organism lives.
It is an excellent antioxidant and reduces oxidative stress on the liver, the whole body, and different systems. It is referred to as the master antioxidant.

Main benefits of Glutathione in West Palm Beach Gardens:

  • It is the body’s Master Antioxidant
  • It Prevents oxidative cell damage
  • GSH is Anti-inflammatory
  • Glutathione is Anti-melanogenic, popular in skin-lightening treatments

  • GSH plays a critical role in protecting cells from oxidative damage.
  • Ingestion of the antioxidant supplement before short intensive exercise increases time to fatigue at 95% peak by 17% on average.
  • Antioxidant supplementation reduces the oxidative stress-induced suppressing aerobic respiration within the mitochondria, thereby
    increasing the efficiency of electron transfer and ATP production.

Autoimmunity

  • Oxidative stress implicated in the pathogenesis of several inflammatory and immune-mediated disorders
  • Dampens both the autoimmune reaction and damage to body tissue
  • Maintains immune homeostasis and prevents autoimmunity
  • Helps with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT)
  • It improves the symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis
  • It is an Anti-rheumatoid agent since it significantly reduces rheumatoid factor

Ophthalmic Support

  • Defence system protecting the eye against chemical and oxidative stress
  • Lens: contribute to complete lens transparency
  • Cornea: maintaining normal hydration level and protecting cellular membrane integrity
  • It reduces the severity of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma
  • Cataract: it protects the ocular lens from cataract formation
  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Delays progression of visual loss
  • Protection against oxidative stress for both cytosolic and mitochondrial damage

Reproductive Support

  • Higher levels of Glutathione in a woman’s follicle translated into increased fertilization rates
  • Affects sperm motility
  • GSH depletion can lead to a reduction of nitric oxide (NO) synthesis, thus impairing vasodilation in the corpora cavernosa leading to erectile dysfunction

Dermatologic Support

  • Improved skin properties:
  • Reduction in wrinkles, increased skin elasticity, and an antiaging agent, at least in middle-aged
  • Reduced wrinkle formation, improves skin moisture levels, and smoothens skin
  • Effectively lightened the skin and reduced the size of dark facial spots
  • Serum glutathione levels have a strong negative correlation with the severity of melasma
  • Safe and effective in lightening the skin
  • At least one level improvement in skin tone was observed using the Taylor hyperpigmentation scale, and the effect may last six months after discontinuation of treatment
  • Photoprotective agent

Liver Support

  • NAC (glutathione precursor) is used to treat Acetaminophen toxicity therapy within 8 hours, get well, and have less than a 10% rate of occurrence of hepatotoxicity. It prevents liver failure and death
  • Liver enzyme levels significantly decreased following treatment with Glutathione for four months. Triglycerides, non-esterified fatty acids, and ferritin levels also decreased

Heart and Cardiovascular Support

  • GSH lowers the risk of cardiovascular events/ disease
  • GSH level was consistent with the severity of heart dysfunction
  • Hypertension: Increased level of GSH leads to decreased values of blood pressures

Respiratory Support

  • GSH protects the lung from accelerated pulmonary function decline and other respiratory diseases
  • COVID-19 pneumonia: 2 g of PO or IV glutathione improved their dyspnea within one h of use. Repeated use of both 2000 mg of PO and IV glutathione was effective in further relieving respiratory symptoms
  • Cigarette Smoking (CS): it is a Defense against the oxidant burden of smoke

Neurologic/Cognitive Support

  • GSH Protects neurons against oxidative stress
  • NAC is an effective precursor to GSH production and crosses the blood brain barrier (BBB)

  • Chronic renal insufficiency: Increase red blood cells in anemic status of CRF patients

Diabetes Support

  • Reduce HbA1c levels in type 2 diabetics
  • Lower oxidative stress and oxidant damage: Uncontrolled type 2 diabetes patients have severely deficient synthesis of Glutathione attributed to limited precursor availability; thus, dietary supplementation is needed to lower oxidative stress and oxidant damage in the face of persistent hyperglycemia
  • Lessen complications of diabetes: GSH deficiency was of great significance in the pathogenesis of Diabetes Mellitus; lesser levels seen
    in diabetic retinopathy

Cancer/ Chemotherapy Support

  • Both protective and pathogenic roles: GSH is crucial to healthy cells for the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, but elevated GSH levels in tumor cells are associated with tumor progression and increased resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs.
  • Prevention of cisplatin (CDDP)-induced toxicity
  • Balancing Act: higher glutathione level makes the cancer cells more chemoresistant at the same time, protect noncancerous tissues against DNA damage and demonstrates a protective role against carcinogens

Dose

  • It can be injected IM or IV. It is beneficial to order the lab tests to determine the baseline of oxidative stress and Glutathione level.
  • Subsequent lab tests and symptoms will guide you to the dose and frequency needed to treat a specific condition.
  • On average, getting 1000 to 2000 mg of Glutathione weekly for 4 to 8 weeks is good, then switching to monthly dosing.

ELIMINATION

  • Glutathione conjugates formed in the liver are excreted intact in bile; from there, it goes to the kidneys and is excreted in the urine.

ABSORPTION

  • Present in fruits, vegetables, and meats
  • Levels in the body do not seem to correlate to dietary intake
  • Suggests that peptidases might inactivate oral Glutathione in the gut.
  • In human research, intravenous Glutathione increased levels of reduced Glutathione after ten minutes and returned to normal after 20 minutes.

BIOAVAILABILITY

  • Oral doses of GSH are generally quickly digested and broken down into inactive amino acid constituents.
