IV Glutathione Therapy

Known as the master antioxidant, glutathione supports the destruction of toxins and free radicals throughout the body, especially in its function in the liver.

IV Glutathione Therapy

Human glutathione levels begin to decline 10-15% per decade at the age of 20, which may cause low energy, fatigue, and a weakened immune system.

Glutathione treatment may also be a helpful way to enhance liver health in people who suffer from fatty liver disease or other conditions, making it a versatile treatment for many people.

Benefits of Glutathione for the Body

Glutathione has multiple benefits both internal and external. Glutathione IV therapy can work to:

  • Eliminate free radicals (reduce oxidative stress)
  • Improve chronic conditions such as psoriasis
  • Brighten skin
  • Fight off some autoimmune diseases
  • Reduce symptoms of some diseases

How Does Glutathione Work?

Glutathione is most commonly found in the human liver and is composed of three amino acids: glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Toxins and free radicals stick to the Glutathione molecule and allow the body a way to eliminate the toxins. Glutathione is recycled by the body at a constant pace and can be used again to help eliminate toxins. However, if the toxin load is too high, the glutathione recycling process gets overloaded, and problems can occur.

Free radicals are present everywhere in the environment. They often interact first with the skin, where they cause issues like pigmentation, acne, rough skin texture, and other forms of skin damage. Glutathione is part of the skin’s protective arsenal for fighting free radicals and other forms of skin damage, such glutathione for skin lightening agent for cells that have too much pigmentation. People with a glutathione deficiency can struggle to get the skin they like because their body is spending its glutathione resources fighting other forms of free radicals throughout the body.

Another effect of glutathione deficiency can be that your body is busy using its resources to combat free radicals in the skin, leading to somatic symptoms like chronic fatigue syndrome that can lower your energy levels and exacerbate the circadian rhythms that make your afternoon or mid-day slumps more pronounced.

When you’re feeling fatigued or want a way to enhance your skin health, customized intravenous treatments at AustinMD can be a way to boost your immune system, fight free radicals, and alleviate symptoms of chronic illness..

Forms of Glutathione Therapy

Supplementing your normal intake of glutathione can be done in several ways. At AustinMD, we offer intravenous drip glutathione and IV push glutathione treatments to replenish your body of this potent antioxidant.

Glutathione levels can also be boosted by eating certain foods that are rich in sulfur. This is because sulfur molecules comprise the more complex glutathione compound, so without sulfur, there’s less glutathione present in the body. Foods rich in sulfur include:

  • Broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Garlic and onions
  • Lean meat (such as fish or chicken)

Glutathione itself can be found in raw substances like unpasteurized milk or other dairy products as well as very rare meat, however, the pasteurization and cooking process for these will eliminate much of the naturally occurring glutathione. Fresh fruits and vegetables can also be a source of glutathione when eaten shortly after picking.

Oral supplements of glutathione are available both over-the-counter and with a prescription, although the digestion process may break down pure glutathione and repurpose it for other uses. Talk to a specialist at AustinMD to find out if glutathione supplements or IV treatments are right for you during a consultation.

IV therapy is a straightforward procedure. Regardless of the type of IV therapy you are receiving, you can expect the process to be pretty uniform. The nurse administering the therapy will talk you through the procedure. Generally, you will be seated somewhere comfortable for the duration of the therapy. The nurse will disinfect the injection site and place a needle directly in a vein. The IV will typically be placed in the arm, but it is possible to be placed elsewhere.
The fluids inside an IV bag depend on the type of therapy you are undergoing. Intravenous solutions can contain saline, vitamins, minerals and medication.
So, what is IV therapy used for? Generally, the main types of IV therapy are Hangover relief, Athletic performance recovery, Immune system support, Cold and flu relief, Pregnancy symptom alleviation and Migraine and headache relief
IV therapy drips amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fluids at a controlled rate. Once you are connected to the IV, which is usually a quick and simple process, the duration of the therapy will depend on why you are undergoing IV therapy. This process can take longer, but will typically require 45 minutes to an hour of your time. Some IV therapies can be done relatively quickly, while others will take longer.
How quickly will you feel the effects of the IV drip? Again, the answer depends on why you are undergoing IV therapy. In some cases, you may feel the effects almost immediately. In other cases, it may take more time. The effects can last for up to a few days after completing the procedure, depending on a number of different factors.
