Glutathione One of the Body’s Most Important Antioxidants

Glutathione One of the Body’s Most Important Antioxidants

Listed below are uses of IV glutathione and an IV glutathione protocol

To elevate glutathione naturally consider NAC (N-acetyl cysteine 500mg 2/d), and or whey protein daily. Alphalipoic 300-600mg is particularly useful too.

In diabetics or neurological conditions I often increase the aphalipoic to 600mg twice a day
Certain foods can elevate glutathione as well, which I will list below

The benefits of glutathione are enormous :
Uses of I.V. Glutathione and oral liposomal glutathione or NAC and ALA

  • Neurologic Disorders
  • CVA, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s
  • Heavy Metal Detox
  • Mercury
  • Intestinal
  • Liver Detox
  • Primary detox substances
  •  Autism spectrum
  • Psychiatric disorders
  • Inflammatory lung disease
  • Vascular disease reversal and prevention

Glutathione Functions

  • Antioxidant
  • Detoxifying
    • Binds to toxins to facilitate removal
    • Uses enzyme Glutathione-s-transferase (GST)
      • Mercury
      • Mycotoxins
  • Cell Signal
  • Immune cells

Glutathione is made up of 3 amino acids :

Cysteine (contains sulfur molecule)

Liposomal glutathione

is a great was to supplement glutathione orally :

Liposomal Glutathione  prevents Ox – LDL formation which occurs with low GSH (reduced glutathione)

OxLDL → Foam Cells → Plaque
Rupture → Sudden Obstruction of blood vessel

  • Low Glutathione in the prefronatal cortex at postmortem in individuals with Major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia
  • Gawryluk JW, et al Decreased levels of glutathione, the major brain antioxidant, in post-mortem prefrontal cortex from patients with psychiatric disorders. The international journal of neuropsychopharmacology 2010:1-8. PubMed: 20633320
  • S-nitrosoglutathione GSNO ← GSH + NO
  • formation of GSNO is a mechanism for storage and transport of nitric oxide.
  • A major source of bronchodilatory NO activity
  • Decreased GSNO activity found in asthma
  • Protection from experimental asthma by an endogenous bronchodilator.
  • Science. 2005 Jun 10;308(5728):1618-21. PMID: 15919956

I.V. Protocol for Glutathione

  • Push
  • Safe
  • Dosage: 500-2500 mg
  • A mix in 5-10 ml of sterile water
  • Push over 3-5 minutes
  • Repeat 2-3 times per week for the first month, then weekly, for a month, the two weekly as desired

Encourage foods that are high glutathione precursors

  • Avocados
  • Potato
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  • NAC
  • BCAA
  • Rosemary (increase glutathione transferase by 400%)
