Intravenous Glutathione Cancer Treatment

Other Names: Gamma-Glutamylcysteinylglycine, Gamma-L-Glutamyl-L-Cysteinylglycine, Glutatión, L-gamma-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine, L-Glutathione, GSH, N-(N-L-gamma-Glutamyl-L-cysteinyl)glycine

Glutathione can assist in a holistic cancer treatment. Glutathione will not cure cancer alone but in combination with other herbs, juices and therapies, glutathione will boost cancer treatment effectiveness.

Glutathione is a fairly recent discovery and over the last 20 years, there have been over 25,000 scientific papers written about it. If you type ‘glutathione’ into Medline on the Web you’ll find 44,000 references. 25,000 of these are scientific papers, most from the past 3 years.

Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver. It is also found in fruits, vegetables, and meats.

People take glutathione by mouth for treating cataracts and glaucoma, preventing aging, treating or preventing alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart disease (atherosclerosis and high cholesterol), hepatitis, liver disease, diseases that weaken the body’s defense system (including AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome), memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, and Parkinson’s disease. Glutathione is also used for maintaining the body’s defense system (immune system) and fighting metal and drug poisoning.

Glutathione is breathed in (inhaled) for treating lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and lung disease in people with HIV disease.

Healthcare providers give glutathione as a shot (by injection into the muscle) for preventing poisonous side effects of cancer treatment (chemotherapy) and for treating the inability to father a child (male infertility).

Healthcare providers also give glutathione intravenously (by injection into the vein, by IV) for preventing “tired blood” (anemia) in kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment, preventing kidney problems after heart bypass surgery, treating Parkinson’s disease, improving blood flow and decreasing clotting in individuals with “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), treating diabetes, and preventing toxic side effects of chemotherapy.

Glutathione (GSH) is a small protein substance inside every cell in your body and it is vital to life. Without GSH your cells would disintegrate from uncontrolled oxidation regardless of how much or what type of anti-oxidants you were consuming. Without glutathione, your body would have little resistance to disease. Viruses, bacteria and cancer would rule the day. GSH prevents your liver from choking with toxic overload. Glutathione is the body’s “master anti-oxidant”, it feeds your white blood cells, including lymphocytes, T-cells and leucocytes and it is your cell’s transport mechanism for ridding the body of toxic material, oxidation breakdown products and damage from pollution.

Without glutathione, all the anti-oxidants that you take are unable to work. When vitamin C or E or lycopene or other anti-oxidants reduce a free radical, that free radical gets handed off to glutathione for transport out of the cell. The same occurs when ultra-violet light, car exhaust, radiation, or lawn chemicals damage a cell; the damage is removed by GSH. A patient, admitted to an ER with an overdose of certain drugs, such as acetaminophen, is given an injection of n-acetyl-cysteine, which serves to rapidly but temporarily boost the glutathione level of the ill patient and remove the offending drug toxins from his system.

Your body’s ability to recognize and deal with foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses as well as cancer cells, depends to a very large degree on the level of glutathione available to your immune system. The greater the supply of GSH, the higher the immune response and the healthier a person can stay.

Many clinical studies have shown that GSH may address some of the major health issues of today: diabetes, heart disease, strokes, asthma, hepatitis, AIDS, and the diseases of aging such as Alzheimer’s and arthritis. The Lancet in 1994 (344: 796-798) showed that low glutathione levels were associated with neuro-degenerative diseases such as MS (multiple sclerosis), ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and others.

Glutathione (GSH): The Body’s Master Antioxidant

Did you know Glutathione also known as GSH, is the most powerful and prevalent antioxidant in your body? Increasing your Glutathione level will naturally increase your energy, detoxify your body and significantly strengthen your immune system. At the same time there are many that claim that oral ingestion of glutathione tablets will also help to whiten your skin.

The Health-Report recommended Patented Formula dramatically increases intracellular levels of Glutathione/GSH and although we make no claims in regard to the whitening of skin, it stands to reason that high levels of GSH in the body will help you to have more youthful and supple skin free of blemishes due to the antioxidant effect on your body.

Our recommended patented natural formula, developed by world renown Dr Robert Keller, provides the proper nutrients needed to promote the body’s own ability to manufacture and utilise glutathione. The formula also aids in liver support, thus helping the liver to function as the main production site and storehouse for glutathione. In turn, your skin being the largest excretory organ the body has will start to glow with health as toxins are eliminated from the body

Group 1 was tested after 6 months of use, while Groups 2, 3 and 4 were tested after only 3 months of the regimen.

The scientific data indicate the formula’s effectiveness in those who are stressed, aging, lacking sleep, or with any prolonged illness. In these situations, the formula stimulates the body’s production of Glutathione to compensate for the body’s accelerated use of it, thereby strengthening your natural defences, markedly decreasing your risk of illness, increasing the body’s ability to utilise whole food antioxidants, whilst guarding against the effects of free radicals on the body’s aging process whilst markedly improving the appearance of the skin. High levels of glutathione in the body has been shown to reduce the appearance of age spots in people as they age.

Increasing Age and Other Factors Reduce the Body’s Production and Utilization of Glutathione.

Scientific research has shown that individuals who have low levels of Glutathione are susceptible to chronic illness and metabolic disease. Scientific research shows that Glutathione levels, steadily decline by 8% to 12% per decade, beginning at the age of 20. Levels of Glutathione are further reduced by continual stress upon the immune system such as illness, infection, and environmental toxins. We now know, a lowered immune system significantly increases the risk of chronic illness and disease. This is a vicious cycle. While you need Glutathione for a productive immune system, a weakened immune system severely hampers the production of Glutathione in the liver.
But did you know that Supplements Containing Glutathione Alone Will NOT Increase The Body’s Glutathione Levels.

It’s pointless to purchase supplements or to eat foods that merely contain Glutathione, because the digestive system breaks down ingested Glutathione and it will NOT be absorbed into your system at any significant level. On the other hand, the Health-Report recommended product provides the proper nutrients needed to promote the body’s own ability to manufacture and utilise Glutathione when it is produced in the liver. This powerful, patented formula, also aids in liver support by destroying environmental poisons, thereby substantially increasing the liver’s ability to function as the main production site and storehouse for Glutathione. An added side effect claimed, is the whitening or lessening of the appearance of age spots over a period of several months.

Intravenous Glutathione Cancer Treatment

Glutathione was discovered in 1888 and introduced into biochemistry in the 1920s.

In the late 1920s and 1930s, there was a burst of research activity on glutathione, particularly in ophthalmology. The reason the research tapered off was the instability of glutathione assays. Being a powerful antioxidant, it is very sensitive to air, light and heat. It oxidizes so fast it is hard to assess its true value before it degrades or oxidizes.

Reduced glutathione (GSH) is a substance made in the cells of our body and is unique because it is both a reducing and a conjugating agent. This means that it is a major antioxidant as a free radical scavenger and an essential component of phase two liver detoxification. It’s an unusual amino acid because it can do two jobs to protect us from toxins: First, it neutralizes free radicals in our body, like toxic compounds from Phase 1 detoxification. Second, it combines with Phase 2 toxic chemicals to form a water-soluble conjugate that can be excreted in the bile and urine. Because glutathione is not broken down easily by digestive enzymes in the intestines, it’s available to intestinal cells for local “first pass” detoxification.

There are also other important functions of glutathione. Besides protecting cells against the destructive effects of radicals and detoxifying substances such as drugs and environmental pollutants, it also maintains cell membrane stability. Glutathione has been found to regulate protein and DNA biosynthesis, cell growth and it enhances immunologic function through it’s effects on lymphocytes.

Ninety percent of the glutathione in a normal cell is in the cell cytosol or fluid, the rest is in the powerhouse of the mitochondria. Doctors specializing in nutritional medicine feel that small decreases in mitochiondrial GSH can result in cell death. Unfortunately mercury such as the material found in dental amalgams, preferentially targets mitochondria and GSH depletion. This is one of the main reasons dental mercury can do so much damage.

The body must manufacture glutathione from other amino acids in the liver for more efficient detoxification in the blood. It is found in fruits and vegetables and is assembled in the body from the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Glutathione deficiency comes from poor diet, free-radical stress, and toxic overload. The recommended dosage of glutathione consists of daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables.

GSH plays a role in eliminating many carcinogens as well as maintaining immune function towards providing stronger anti-tumor defenses. Cancer Letters 57: 91-94 1991

Cancer, chemotherapy and radiation therapy all deplete Glutathione. In one study several cancer cells lines including small cell carcinoma (lung), colon carcinoma, neuroblastoma (brain), mammary (breast) carcinoma, and one acute myelocitic leukemia line were tested with either 5FU which is a chemotherapy drug or Glutathione. Apoptosis (programmed cell death) occurred in the Glutathione cells after four applications while those in the 5FU group did not show any apoptosis. This shows that Glutathione helps cancer cells die in a shorter period of time that the chemotherapy drug.

Unfortunately research in cell lines does not always translate into the same action in the human body.

In another study with glutathione ovarian cancer patients were given glutathione with cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug. This study found that more cycles of treatment with cisplatin could be given to the patients because less toxicity occurred. Other side effects of cisplatin including depression, nausea, peripheral neurotoxicity, hair loss and shortness of breath were significantly improved.

In another study with cancer patients glutathione was administered 15 minutes before cisplatin in 51 patients with 229 courses of therapy. No patient developed toxicity and all tolerated the high dose regimen. Kidney toxicity was minimal. The most common side effect was slight nerve damage to the ears. 30 of these patients had ovarian cancer and of these 59% achieved complete remission. 22 of 26 were clear of cancer on a second laparoscopy. This is a high rate of effectiveness as ovarian cancer survival rates are low.

The Research on Glutathione

Glutathione has been the subject of a very large degree of research for several decades although little or no conclusive research exists in regard to skin whitening claims that many websites claim for Glutathione. Glutathione is found in many foods but the body cannot utilise it properly. Some foods contain precursors for Glutathione, such as cysteine, glycine and N-acetylcysteine, but eating sufficient quantities of these foods to markedly increase Glutathione levels is very difficult to achieve. Seeing Glutathione is not well absorbed into the body when taken by mouth or by eating whole foods, many people have tried taking Glutathione intravenously with varied, but mostly poor results.

Some of the foods that contain precursors, such as cysteine, for Glutathione include poultry, wheat, broccoli, eggs, garlic, capsicum, red meat, fish, dairy products, beans, fruits, vegetables, asparagus, avocado and walnuts.

Essentially, Glutathione is a tri-peptide that is made up of gamma-glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, and is also known as gamma-glutamylcysteinelglycine or GSH. Glutathione has been called the body’s master antioxidant with good reason, as it is found in every cell of the body. Glutathione actively stimulates the action of ingested antioxidants from whole foods and allows the proper utilisation of phyto-nutrients vital for health and longevity. Put simply, if the level of Glutathione in the body is too low, no amount of supplementation with antioxidants will have a marked effect on the health of the individual.

Glutathione Facts

Glutathione is a powerful regenerator of immune cells and is easily the most important agent in keeping the body detoxified and healthy. Glutathione is vitally important in the synthesis of DNA and the maintenance DNA, the synthesis of protein and amino acids, so the body can utilise them effectively. Also glutathione plays an important part in the removal of synthetic chemical toxins and carcinogens and resulting free radicals whilst playing a significant role in optimizing the immune system. In addition, it is essential in protecting cells from oxidisation and activates enzymes vital for the removal of all toxic build up at the cellular level.

Glutathione also has exceptionally strong antiviral effects. High levels of glutathione in the body and subsequently in tissues and blood serum, have been shown to inhibit and prevent the replication of virtually all pathogens. By the same token, if the levels of glutathione are too low in the body, the body is far more susceptible to virus and pathogen invasion.

Potential Benefits of Glutathione

  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Free radical fighter
  • Cardio support
  • Immune system Enhancer
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Skin rashes, infections and wounds
  • Diarrhea
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Vasorelaxant

Glutathione Properties

  • Is found in almost all living cells. The liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, and the lens and cornea, have the highest concentrations in the body.
  • It is a powerful antioxidant and thus neutralizes free radicals and prevents their formation.
  • Important role in immune function via white blood cell production and is one of the most potent anti-viral agents known.
  • It is one of the strongest anti-cancer agents manufactured by the body.
  • Glutathione is able to reduce oxidized Vitamin C and Vitamin E back to their unoxidized state.
  • It is used by the liver to detoxify many toxins including formaldehyde, acetaminophen, benzpyrene and many other compounds and plays a key role in Phase I and Phase II detoxification reactions.
  • It is an antioxidant necessary for the protection of proteins; is involved in nucleic acid synthesis and plays a role in DNA repair.
  • It maintains the cellular redox potential.
  • Glutathione levels decrease with age. It is involved in cellular differentiation and slows the aging process.
  • Protects the integrity of red blood cells.
  • Glutathione is involved in maintaining normal brain function.

Glutathione Metabolism

Glutathione is synthesized in the body from 3 amino acids: Cysteine, glutamine and glycine. Cysteine is one of the sulfur containing amino acids used for the synthesis of glutathione, which is very critical in detoxification. N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is the rate limiting amino acid for the production of glutathione within the cells of the body, has mucolytic properties, and is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier. Some research indicates that NAC is more readily absorbed into certain cells of the body than glutathione and is therefore an excellent synergist with glutathione. The thiol group is the active part of the molecule which serves as a reducing agent to prevent oxidation of tissues.

Reduced Glutathione: glutathione acts as one of the major detoxifiers in the body, but it must be in the reduced form to work properly. Sometimes glutathione will be listed on the label of a product, however it wont be specifically listed as being reduced. The unreduced form is much cheaper and isn’t metabolically active. Riboflavin, niacinamide, selenium, lipoic acid and glutathione reductase are all essential cofactors for generating reduced glutathione. Once the cysteine moieties become oxidized, they combine to form cystine. Cystine taken by itself is poorly absorbed.

Glutathione peroxidase is another compound which is involved in detoxification against peroxides and other xenobiotics. It is synthesized from selenium and cysteine.

Note: Some therapeutics for glutathione can use cysteine, which is considerably less expensive. There are some inborn errors in metabolism that may require glutathione directly. Oral supplementation of glutathione does not necessarily raise tissue levels of glutathione in all cases however and some medical conditions require direct intravenous administration of reduced glutathione.

Other supplements such as vitamin C, selenium and N-acetyl cysteine may have a more significant effect at actually raising glutathione levels in the liver and other tissues. Certain labs can assess glutathione status directly or indirectly.

Glutathione cannot be taken as a supplement because it is broken down by the digestive system before reaching the cells. Intravenous glutathione is the most effective way to raise glutathione levels.

Intravenous glutathione can be used in the treatment of:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Macular degeneration
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cataracts
  • Stroke
  • Lung disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Irritable bowel
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer

Glutathione Benefits

Immune System

Immune Depressed individuals have lower GSH levels when fighting disease. Lymphocytes, cells vital for your immune response, depend on GSH for their proper function and replication. Cellular depletion of Glutathione has been implicated as a causative, or contributory factor in many pathologies including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cataracts, arteriosclerosis, cystic fibrosis, malnutrition, aging, AIDS and cancer (Bounous et al., 1991). In addition, Glutathione is essential in supporting the immune system, including natural killer cells (Droege et al., 1997) and in the maintenance of T-lymphocytes (Gutman, 1998).

Glutathione and the Liver

Regarding the safety of glutathione in the liver, it is said that the levels of glutathione in the liver is critically linked to the livers capacity to detoxify. This means that the higher the glutathione content, the greater the liver s capacity to detoxify harmful chemicals. Typically, when we are exposed to chemicals like alcohol which can damage the liver, the concentration of glutathione in the liver is substantially reduced. This reduction makes the liver susceptible to damage.

Aging Process

It is known that as we age, there is a precipitous drop in GSH levels. Lower Glutathione levels are implicated in many diseases associated with aging, including Cataracts, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, arteriosclerosis and others. Journal of Clinical Epidemiology 47: 1021-28 1994


Strong muscular activity generates oxyradicals leading to muscle fatigue and poorer performance. GSH neutralizes these radicals. Whey proteins promote muscular development. Sports Medicine 21; 213 – 238, 1996. Recent research indicates that propensities toward many degenerative diseases and aging itself are related to the capacity of the cell to robustly recover from oxidative insult. The capacity of a cell to recover from such insult can be determined by measuring the intracellular stores of Glutathione. (Noelle et al., 1981)

Antioxidant Functions

Antioxidants are well documented to play vital roles in health maintenance and disease prevention. GSH is our cell’s own major antioxidant. Biochemical Pharmacology 47:2113-2123 1994

Neurological Disease

Low GSH has been demonstrated in nuerodegenerative diseases such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis), ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s, among others. The Lancel 344: 796-798 1994

Toxins, Pollution, Radiation

GSH detoxifies many pollutants, carcinogens and poisons, including many in fuel exhaust and cigarette smoke. It retards damage from radiation such as seen with loss of the ozone. Annual Review of Biochemistry 52 : 711-780 1983. The liver is the main detoxification organ of the body. In the liver we find very high concentrations of GSH, as it is a major factor in numerous biochemical detoxification pathways. Numerous studies have demonstrated that patients with compromised liver function due to alcohol abuse have significant reduction of GSH in the liver. (Lamestro, 1995)


Low Glutathione levels with poor survival in AIDS patients. Much literature has been written demonstrating the role of enhancing GSH levels in AIDS. Proc. National Acad. Science USA 94: 2967-72 1997


Diabetes is a disease process that depletes glutathione. Glutathione administered IV was found to lower sorbitol levels in the red blood cells of Diabetics. This indicates that glutathione helps diabetics metabolize sugars in a healthier way. Sorbitol is a by product of certain metabolic pathways that can lead to diabetics developing organ damage.

Glutathione administered IV decreased blood pressure in patients who had high blood pressure and diabetes, and patients who just had high blood pressure. It had no blood pressure lowering effect on healthy individuals. This suggests glutathione may help dilate the vessels and restore healthy nitric oxide function.

Glutathione improved insulin secretion from the pancreas in response to increased blood sugar in older patient with impaired glucose tolerance. Because of this effect glutathione may show in the future to help restore normal blood sugar metabolism and prevent progression to DM.

Fatty Liver

A study was performed in patients who had chronic fatty liver from many different causes including: alcohol and non alcohol related, or HBV, HCV, HDV. This study found that glutathione was reduced in the liver cells of these patients which reduced the cells ability to detoxify the blood. IV administration of glutathione significantly improved hepatic function test during treatment and for several months after it was stopped.

Another study done on rats showed that when glutathione was depleted in their livers the flow of bile was significantly reduced. Without bile flow the liver cannot properly detoxify and the body cannot digest fats. Bile flow was restored when the rats were given IV glutathione.


In a 1996 study conducted by the Department of Neurology, University of Sassari (Italy), all Parkinson’s disease patients showed significant improvement and a decline in disability by 42 percent.

Studies have shown that Parkinson’s patients have decreased glutathione levels in the substantia nigra region of the brain. The amount of glutathione depletion seems to parallel the severity of the patients symptoms so people with lower levels of glutathione have more severe symptoms.

These improvements in symptoms lasted for 2-4 months after the IV glutathione was stopped. Glutathione may retard progression of this disease.


In patients with Atherosclerosis IV Glutathione was shown to significantly decrease blood viscosity and significantly increase blood filtration.

Glutathione has been shown to be significantly lower in patients who are older than in patients who are younger. Glutathione levels were significantly lower in diabetics and patients with age related macular degeneration.

Glutathione Main Sources

Glutathione is produced inside the body from amino acids, and consuming foods rich in sulfur-containing amino acids can increase glutathione production. Raw foods are much better at providing these amino acids than cooked food is.

  • Asparagus, broccoli, avocados and spinach are primary glutathione boosters.
  • All fresh raw fruits and vegetables are good for increasing glutathione levels, particularly cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage and kale.
  • Raw eggs and fresh unprocessed meat contain high amounts of sulfur-containing amino acids. The meat can be cooked rare if you are concerned about eating it raw.
  • Two spices increase glutathione: garlic and the Indian curry spice turmeric.
  • Whey protein is a good source of sulfur-containing amino acids, but it must be undenatured, which is a non-heated type.

Glutathione IV Side Effects

Glutathione has been used by many doctors to treat diseases that destroy neurons, such as Parkinson’s disease. Intravenous glutathione can be administered by medical personnel when there is a need to eliminate free radicals in a person’s system. Although the side effects are rare, there are specific situations and conditions that may increase the likelihood of unwanted symptoms developing in a patient.

  • A glutathione IV can create very unpleasant side effects when matched with too much selenium. If a person ingests selenium in levels of 400 milligrams or more in a day, the ions from the metal will merge with glutathione and can cause hair loss, white spots on nails or a loss of feeling in appendages, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
  • The Aging Studies Institute says that excessive use of a glutathione IV may cause substantial neurological side effects. The drug can be toxic in large dosages, leading to shivers, shakes, anxiety or depression issues. Use of this chemical should always be closely monitored by a medical professional.
  • It’s possible that some side effects can occur based on an allergy to glutathione such as: tightness in chest and throat, difficulty breathing, rash, hives, swollen or itchy skin.

Glutathione Contraindications

Glutathione should not be administered to patients who are receiving chemotherapy because it may reduce the effects of chemotherapy drugs, and it should not be administered alongside other IV drugs. Additionally, vitamin C can interfere with Glutathione’s benefits.

Glutathione Considerations

  • Healthy individuals or people with kidney and liver problems can suffer digestive problems from the injection. A report in the Journal of Nutrition shows these effects can cause serious damage to a person’s system and cause severe pains, diarrhea and gas.
  • At this time there have been no studies conducted to determine what, if any, side effects occur from the use of glutathione, but zinc deficiency has been reported in long term use of some products containing the ingredient.

Glutathione Special Precautions & Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of glutathione during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Asthma: Do not inhale glutathione if you have asthma. It can increase some asthma symptoms.

Glutathione Misconceptions

Chronic use of glutathione can lead to increased tolerance of the drug, as stated in the Journal of Nutrition. Within six months, a person needs multiple injections daily to obtain the same benefits as were originally present, which can lead to the likelihood of one of the other side effects taking control of the body.

Glutathione Significance

If there are too many antioxidants in a person’s bloodstream, the effects of a glutathione IV dosage can be completely nullified, according to the Textbook of Cosmetic Dermatology. This means that a person who needs the compound for a condition may not receive any benefits from the injection.

Gluathione IV injection taken along with Vitamin C is the most effective and the best skin whitening procedure. You get a much younger looking fairer skin with an amazing glow. Glutathione actually reduces melanin stimulation and pigmentation of the skin leading to white skin tone or color. Effects of skin whitening depend on how much pigmentation is there on the skin. You can see visible changes in the skin tone after the third or fourth session of IV Glutathione injection.

What is Glutathione Injection?
Glutathione IV is an anti-oxidant naturally present in our body at the time we are born. However, as we grow older the supply of Glutathione reduces as it is used up by our body in cell metabolism. The usage of Glutathione IV injection rejuvenates these cells in our body. This leads to a noticeably fairer complexion, firm and youthful sin. It also aids liver cells to regenerate from damages that are caused by prolonged alcohol abuse or intake of fatty food.

Glutathione IV injection or orally?
If you are taking Glutathione injections, you can use the ones of the drug company Roche of Switzerand. Glutathione IV injections are better and more effective compared to taking it orally. If you take Glutathione orally, the drug is broken down by stomach acids and just 20 percent of the active part of the drug is absorbed by the body. Compared to oral intake, Glutathione Injections take though injections tend to be far more effective as 100 percent of it is absorbed automatically.
Glutathione needs Vitamin C for better and more long-lasting action. When taken along with Vitamin C, Glutathione can make the skin considerable fairer, firmer and much younger looking.

What are the side effects of Gluathione IV with Vitamin C?
People who are above 27 years of age can take IV Glutathione injections. Do not self-administer Glutathione IV injections on your own, this is strictly the work of a professional. Administration of Glutathione IV injection by a trained professional like a doctor is highly recommended. It is a 100 percent safe process but if a person who does not know how to use it, does it on herself or himself, there is a risk of problem like infection, stroke and heart disease.

Glutathione IV injection along with Vitamin C is your best bet for fair complexion and glowing skin. As the best skin whitening process, you can benefit from Glutathione IV and Vitamin C to get a young, fairer skin with a good glow. Glutathione actually brings down melanin stimulation and pigmentation of the skin leading to white skin tone or color. Effects of skin whitening depend on how much pigmentation is there on the skin. You can see visible changes in the skin tone after the third or fourth session of IV Glutathione injection.

Is it necessary to take Glutathione and Vitamin C?
Glutathione needs Vitamin C for better and more long-lasting action. When taken along with Vitamin C, Glutathione can make the skin considerable fairer, firmer and much younger looking. People who are above 27 years of age can take IV Glutathione injections.

Is IV Glutathione safe?
Administration of Glutathione IV injection by a trained professional like a doctor is highly recommended. It is a 100 percent safe process but if a person who does not know how to use it, does it on herself or himself, there is a risk of problem like infection, stroke and heart disease. Do not self-administer Glutathione IV injections on your own, this is strictly the work of a professional.

What is the cost of Glutathione IV?
Glutathione IV is expensive, about $2200. However, glutathione supplements are inexpensive and would boost a juice fasting treatment.

Glutathione Supplementation

Supplementing with Glutathione in the past has been difficult and remains difficult, as scientific research shows that Glutathione taken orally is NOT well absorbed across the GI tract.

In a study of acute oral administration of a VERY large dose of 3 grams of oral glutathione, Witschi and coworkers found that “it is NOT possible to increase circulating Glutathione to a clinically beneficial extent by the oral administration of a single dose of 3 g of glutathione.”

However, tissue and serum glutathione concentrations can be raised significantly by increased intake of the precursor cysteine, or in chronic conditions, by S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). Glutathione precursors rich in cysteine include N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and undenatured whey protein, and these supplements have been shown to increase glutathione content within the cell. N-Acetylcysteine is a generically available supplement which has been demonstrated to increase intracellular reduced and total Glutathione by up to 92% and 58% respectively.

However, the patented natural formula recommended by the Health-Report team has been shown to markedly increase the levels of Glutathione in individuals suffering chronic illness, by stimulating the liver to produce glutathione, by over 400% after just three months of supplementation in one group of individuals with compromised immune systems.
