Our bodies’ quintessential antioxidant defense is the glutathione system, which includes glutathione along with enzymes and other proteins that enable glutathione to do its work.
Glutathione is a very simple molecule produced naturally by the liver. Our body makes it from three amino acids; cysteine, glycine and glutamine. It is incredibly versatile and a universal toxin-binder. Glutathione is extremely important for maintaining intracellular health. Levels of glutathione have been shown to diminish substantially with age as well as with chronic illness and poor health.
Glutathione protects cells from free radical damage and helps improve cellular function at all levels (immune function, hormone levels, mitochondrial function, etc.) As people develop chronic illness, glutathione levels decrease. Maintaining an adequate glutathione level is not only critical for wellness but also aids in the recovery process.
Glutathione is a peptide that is often referred to as the master detoxifier for its incredible ability to promote skin health, body function, overall mood and well-being.
At Element IV Therapy we offer glutathione in our Element Myer’s IV infusion therapy to help promote our patients’ overall health.
