Glutathione is an Antioxidant
Glutathione is produced in cells, and is largely comprised of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. Glutathione levels in the body can be reduced by several factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and even stress. Glutathione levels also decline as we age. In addition to being produced naturally by our body, glutathione may be given intravenously. It’s also available as an oral supplement in capsule and liquid form.
Some Benefits of Glutathione
Reduces Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress happens in our body when there’s an imbalance between the production of free radicals and our ability to fight them off. Excessive levels of oxidative stress can be pathway for a multiple of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmunity disease. Glutathione helps eliminate the impact of oxidative stress, which can reduce disease. A recent article in Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy indicates that a deficiency in glutathione can lead to increased levels of oxidative stress, which may lead to cancer.
Improves insulin Resistance in Older Adults
As we age, we will produce less glutathione. Researchers at Baylor School of Medicine used a combination of animal and human studies to explore glutathione in weight management and insulin resistance in older adults. Their studies indicated that lower glutathione levels were found with less fat burning, plus higher rates of fat storing in the body. These subjects then had cysteine and glycine added to their diets to increase glutathione levels, which spiked within two weeks, improving insulin resistance and fat burning! That’s great news for those trying to lose a few stubborn pounds at the IV Hub in Medford MA hydration therapy bar.
Increases Mobility in Peripheral Artery Disease
Peripheral artery disease occurs when the peripheral arteries become clogged by plaque. It most commonly happens in the legs. One study reported that glutathione improved circulation, increasing the ability of study participants to walk pain-free for longer distances. Participants receiving glutathione rather than a saline solution placebo were given intravenous infusions two times daily for five days, and then analyzed for mobility.
May Reduce Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease affects the central nervous system and unfortunately currently has no cure. One older study from the Mayo Clinic documented intravenous glutathione’s positive effects on symptoms such as tremors and rigidity. More research is definitely needed, but this study does suggest that glutathione may help reduce symptoms, improving quality of life in people with this Parkinson’s Disease.
Fights Against Autoimmune Disease and Diabetes
The chronic inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases can increase oxidative stress. These diseases include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcerative Colitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus and others. High blood sugar is also associated with lower amounts of glutathione. This also can lead to oxidative stress and tissue damage. A recent study found that dietary supplementations with cysteine and glycine boosted glutathione levels and lowered oxidative stress in people with diabetes, despite their sugar levels.
