Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifying compound consisting of three amino acids: cystine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Produced in the liver, glutathione assists with detoxifying xenobiotics and heavy metals, neutralizes hydrogen peroxide, maintains the integrity of blood cells, and helps transport amino acids across cell membranes. It aids in the breakdown of oxidized fats and is necessary for carbohydrate metabolism. Glutathione is also involved in metabolizing insulin and regulating blood glucose levels.
Dr. Lelchuk often uses this very valuable and important molecule, glutathione, to help patients with a wide variety of problems. It is deficient in nearly all ill patients including people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, diabetes, arthritis, kidney problems, liver disease and other illnesses. Glutathione naturally acts as an antioxidant, immune system booster, and detoxifier and helps the body repair damage caused by stress, pollution, radiation, infection, poor diet, aging, injury and trauma. Thus, a deficiency in the molecule can be extremely detrimental to a person’s health.
Whether you’re fighting a serious illness or simply hoping to prevent potential health problems, an intravenous mixture of glutathione, combined with other important vitamins, will help you obtain better results and improve your overall health. The intravenous form of glutathione is much more potent and effective than other forms as it bypasses stomach acid which destroys most of it.
