Glutathione and Skin Health
The skin lightening properties of IV Glutathione result from a variety of mechanisms including stimulation of lighter pheomelanin pigment synthesis rather than darker eumelanin.
In a 2012 study, 60 medical student were given either glutathione capsules, or placebo for 4 weeks. The melanin indices decreased consistently at all six sites in subjects who received glutathione indicating a lightening of the skin.
In a 2017 study female subjects were in three groups and took two forms of glutathione or placebo orally for 12 weeks. In the glutathione groups, melanin index (indicating lighter skin) and skin wrinkles reduced while elasticity increased.
How many treatments do I need?
It depends on what you are using glutathione for. For instance, for treating MS relapses we often recommend IV Therapy treatments of 2-6 grams, every other day for 5-7 treatments. This is based off of the experience of our Naturopath Dr Muradov.
For skin health, at our Naturopath Clinic, we usually administer 2-5 grams of Glutathione, 1-2x weekly for 4-12 weeks, usually with 5-10grams of Vitamin C.
What can glutathione be used for?
Most commonly we use IV Glutathione for MS, Skin Health and Parkinson's.
We can also use IV Glutathione for ALS, Lyme Disease, Parkinson's, Neuropathy (diabetic, chemotherapy induced), Anti-Aging, Detoxification and others.
Are they any side-effects?
Surprisingly, not really. We've administered IV Glutathione in high doses (2 to 8 grams) for 9 years with almost no side effects. If IV Glutathione is administered too rapidly as a push it can cause brief shortness of breath and a slight head pressure sensation, but we never see this when it is administered as a drip IV.
Accumulating lines of evidence indicate that glutathione function is implicated in some neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Huntington’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Glutathione is produced from three amino acids—glutamate, cysteine and glycine
Glutathione is distributed throughout the human body. The highest levels are found in the liver, followed by the kidney, spleen, small intestine, brain, pancreas, lung, heart, and muscle.
Glutathione does not reach the brain directly because of the blood-brain barrier (BBB), it can penetrate the BBB only by the mechanism of passive diffusion. It has a half life of 2-3 minutes.
