Glutathione IV shots: your perfect all-round health booster for winter…and beyond

10-04-2020 | Posted in: New Treatments, Wellness & Lifestyle

From strengthening immune systems and detoxing, to combating ageing, discover why getting shots of this superhero antioxidant can work wonders for you…

You know how it is with every winter. We all start the new year in high spirits, with high aspirations and a renewed sense of purpose. But then miserable weather, a prevalence of winter viruses, and an endless hangover from the holidays, conspire against us.

That leaves us stressed, lethargic, and not feeling ourselves. Sounds familiar, right?

Well, we’ve decided to do something about it and give you a helping hand. To that end, we have introduced wonder glutathione IV shots to the clinic. And we use that term “wonder”, because they really do wonderful things, from boosting your immune system and replenishing energy, to brightening and repairing your skin.

Read on and I’ll explain how…

What is glutathione?

Glutathione has been hailed in the medicine world as the “king” of all the antioxidants. This is true, not only because of its potency and vast range of benefits, but because of its essentiality.

It is found in every cell in the body and is produced naturally by the liver. It can also be found in a wide range og fruit, vegetables and meats. For each of us, glutathione serves a number of purposes, including repairing tissue, neutralising free radicals, and protecting cells from toxins and other harmful adversaries (among other things!). It helps keep our skin in good condition, and is also believed to help protect us from illness and diseases, including cancer, heart disease and even neurological conditions, such as dementia.

Glutathione’s uses and studies in medical science are quite far-reaching. We might see as something that helps us to maintain our youth, both on the outside, and from the inside. It is really quite powerful!

However, while our bodies produce glutathione naturally, unfortunately, there are also a number of daily and unavoidable evils that depletes our levels, including pollution, stress, and exposure to toxins, as well as our own lifestyle choices and diet, and, of course, the natural ageing process itself.

The magic of glutathione shots…

Perhaps understandably, glutathione shots are becoming increasingly popular. When delivered to the body intravenously, they can perform a variety of amazing things, including:

  • Boosting our immune systems. This makes it an ideal supplement for those chilly months, when colds and viruses are in greater circulation, and we may notice ourselves more susceptible to them.
  • Aiding performance and recovery in sport and physical activities. This includes helping us to maintain energy levels and stave off tiredness.
  • Brightening the skin by preventing and reversing the effects of free radicals.
  • Fighting off the effects of ageing on our skin by again counteracting the effects of harmful free radicals. As such, it can make the results of other anti-ageing treatments last longer, by that we mean treatments such as dermal fillers and liquid facelifts.
  • Speeding up the body’s natural detoxification process by flushing out the waste and toxins, and generally making you feel much better.

But why intravenously delivered?

Glutathione is widely available as oral supplements, and indeed, these supplements have become popular and they too help to raise the body’s glutathione levels. However, in terms of effectiveness, consuming glutathione in a tablet form is far inferior to having it administered through an intravenous (IV) drip by a doctor. If you’re not aware, intravenous therapy is a procedure in which a fluid or medicine is administered directly into a patient’s vein by way of a small plastic tube.

I will explain why IV therapy is superior. In basic terms, as with any oral supplements, an oral glutathione tablet is first digested through the stomach, meaning not all of it is absorbed and used by the body. Therefore, you only receive a percentage of its effects.

With IV shots, the glutathione is delivered directly into your bloodstream, meaning every last drop is absorbed and used by your body. It’s a 100% absorption rate. As a result, your body gets a full, direct hit of glutathione and you enjoy an instant wellness lift. Side-effects are also extremely rare.

However, we have to stress that intravenous therapy should always be performed in the presence of a doctor. Although a simple, painless procedure, it is after all, a medical procedure, and the utmost skill and care must be taken.

Ultimately, though, what’s not to love?

Are you ready to take a shot?

So, like I said earlier, glutathione IV shots sound pretty wonderful, right?

If you’re feeling low this year, if you’re finding yourself prone to colds, which you then can’t shake, or if your skin is looking dull and you want an extra barrier of defence against ageing – perhaps to complement an existing aesthetics treatment – then why not consider giving our glutathione IV shots a…well, shot? We think they could just be the extra boost you need to get you through the early months and maybe even beyond.
