The Benefits of Glutathione Injections
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is produced in cells. The levels in the body can be reduced with age, poor nutrition, stress, and environmental toxins. The body can produce glutathione naturally but it can also be given intravenously or as an inhalant. Oral ingestion of glutathione may not be as effective as glutathione injections.
There are a number of benefits of glutathione injections and having the right levels in your body. It may help reduce oxidative stress that occurs when there is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the body’s inability to fight them off. High levels of oxidative stress can be a precursor to different diseases. Glutathione may help improve insulin resistance in older individuals. It may also help reduce the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Glutathione injections may help against autoimmune diseases. The chronic inflammation caused by autoimmune diseases increases oxidative stress. Glutathione may help with oxidative stress by quenching free radicals in the body and preventing them from causing damage to tissue and the DNA in cells.
