Antioxidant properties

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is naturally produced by the body. It is made up of three amino acids: glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. Glutathione plays an important role in protecting the body against harmful toxins and free radicals.

Mechanism of action

When we are exposed to harmful toxins and free radicals, they can cause damage to our cells and tissues. Glutathione detoxification injections work by increasing the levels of glutathione in the body, which helps to neutralize these harmful substances and eliminate them from the body.

Glutathione detoxification injections are administered intramuscularly or intravenously, which allows the glutathione to be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. This can help to provide quick relief from symptoms of toxin overload, such as fatigue, brain fog, and skin problems.
