Glutathione – could this be the fountain of youth?

Glutathione - could this be the fountain of youth - Beautiful woman

The fountain of youth is something we have all heard about, dreamt about and even gone in search for. For centuries people have researched the one thing that will keep them young forever. But all they really needed to do was look inside their bodies. 

Glutathione, often called the Master Molecule or Master Antioxidant, is a powerful antioxidant our very own bodies actually produce. Glutathione it is packed full of everything we need to obtain and maintain that youthful look we are all in search of.

There is one small problem though. We may produce a ton of it, but we also do a lot of things that cancel it out on a daily basis just by eating poorly, spending time in highly polluted areas, or taking too many medications. 

Even getting sick and just the process of getting older can lower the amount of glutathione in our bodies. Luckily for us, in this day and age, we have establishments like Drip IV Lounge that are able to combat the signs of aging through IV therapy. 

We now have the chance to increase glutathione levels within our bodies so we can all enjoy its many benefits. Through IV therapy, glutathione is put into our bloodstream intravenously. Here’s what you need to know about glutathione, what it is, and why it’s so good for you.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a tripeptide – a combination of three amino acids called cysteine, glycine, and glutamine. It is actually present in most of the cells in our bodies, though it’s most often found to be concentrated in the liver. Here is what makes it so great, though. 

Glutathione contains a sticky sulfur chemical group that collects all the bad molecules floating around in your body and neutralizes them. These are called free radicals, and when they are eliminated, your immune system gets a massive boost.

Benefits of Glutathione through IV Therapy:

Glutathione IV therapy comes with a variety of benefits for both your skin and body. Once you start receiving Glutathione intravenously and see how you feel, you will understand why it’s called the Master Molecule. These are just some of the benefits listed below.

1. Prevents Chronic Illness

Nearly every person with some sort of chronic illness, like Parkinson’s Disease, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and cancer has one similar characteristic, They are low on glutathione. When we have introduced too many toxins into our bodies or become overwhelmed with oxidative stress, we unfortunately get sick. 

Glutathione uses its antioxidant powers to eliminate those toxins and stress, leading to the prevention of chronic illness.

2. Slows the Aging Process

Glutathione spends a lot of time repairing damaged cells, particularly the ones that spur the aging process. By removing free radicals from our bodies, we are welcoming in stronger hair and nails, tighter and brighter skin and even higher energy levels. 

Glutathione also encourages mitochondrial growth, creating younger, more beneficial cells to replace the aging ones.

3. Boosts Athletic Ability

If you want to reach your peak ability athletically, glutathione is one of the best supplements for it. Not only does it decrease incidents of muscle damage, it also boosts your strength and endurance, encourages your body to make more muscle than fat and reduces recovery times.

4. Controls Inflammation

Free radicals love to congregate in your body, causing inflammation and damage to whatever meeting spot they choose. But when you have enough glutathione in your body, the antioxidant busts up the free radical party, which means you can say goodbye to inflammation because those cell-damaging molecules causing it were just kicked out.

5. Detoxifies the Liver

Glutathione is most commonly found in our livers, waiting for any toxins to flow through so it can attach to them and help get them out of the body. By default, that means it’s detoxifying the liver, which helps stave off conditions like fatty liver disease.

Here is some more information on Glutathione that may be of interest.

Glutathione and Skin Lightening:

A surprising side effect of glutathione is that it can unexpectedly lighten your skin tone. Once it gets into your body, it deactivates tyrosinase, the enzyme that produces melanin. Depending on your personal preference, that can be a good or bad thing—in a similar way that the effects of a tanning bed can be considered both good and bad. 

But in any case, it’s only a temporary shift. As soon as the glutathione cycles through your system, the skin lightening effects dissipate.

Benefits of Intravenous Glutathione:

For all its benefits, glutathione struggles with one thing, really getting absorbed into our bodies. Oral glutathione supplements are a start, but enzymes in our stomachs immediately begin to dissolve the bonds holding the three amino acids together. And without those bonds, it won’t be absorbed into our systems.

When you take glutathione intravenously through IV infusion therapy, it goes right into the bloodstream. That means you don’t have to worry about whether the antioxidant is being absorbed, because you’re doing the hard work for it to begin with.

DRIP IV LOUNGE offers you customized intravenous (IV) VITAMIN, ESSENTIAL MINERALS, ELECTROLYTE and ANTI-OXIDANT therapy that maximize natural health, performance, recovery and general wellness.

The demanding pace of life can leave our bodies severely depleted of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants. In our modern society, mass production and chemically processed foods often lack high-quality nutrition. And then there is our common enemy, which no one will escape, AGE!

All of the above are common causes of increased free radicals in our bodies, and a decline in anti-oxidants (needed to reduce the damage done by free radicals) The end result is physical, mental and emotional exhaustion which reflects in our overall health, leaving us with prescription drugs to treat the symptoms.
