People who are interested in detoxing may have heard about Glutathione injections. Glutathione is a natural detoxifier, an antioxidant that’s found in almost every cell in the body. It works to keep some of the hardest working organs like the liver, spleen and pancreas in good working order.
Cells are great storage units for energy and DNA, but they can also build up a concentration of negative influences called “free radicals”. These are byproducts of the normal stuff the body does like eating, breathing and exertion. Take your car, for example – you buy it brand new and it works great, but over time it gathers dust from the road, the oil and filter need to be changed and maybe even a part or two need to be replaced. That’s the kind of effect free radicals have on the body.
That’s where Glutathione comes in. It’s an amino acid that works to help clean the body out so harmful substances don’t stick to your insides. Glutathione supplements will help boost your ability to dispose of free radicals, repair vital systems at the cellular level, and is even thought to be very helpful in reducing the risk of developing cancer.
For aging persons or those who have recently completed a course of chemotherapy, Glutathione deficiency can be a common issue. Symptoms may include:
- Problems with coordination
- Sustained side effects from chemotherapy
