Fighting Fatigue with Glutathione
Whether you’re lacking in energy as a result of the demands of modern life or experiencing fatigue as a symptom of a more serious health concern, it seems that there is an ever-growing exhaustion epidemic.
Glutathione has long been identified as an essential molecule required by the body because of its potency as an antioxidant. Although the body produces glutathione naturally, we are seeing an growth in glutathione deficiencies as levels fast become depleted due to ageing, stress, poor diet and, often, as a result of serious illness.
Reduced levels of glutathione are linked to a number of serious health concerns, including cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME and fibromyalgia, and this is due to the huge number of important roles that glutathione plays in the body.
It is involved in many of the processes of our cells, including the levels of free radicals that are produced. Free radicals and the oxidative stress they cause are intrinsically linked to degenerative diseases and accelerated ageing.
Fatigue is one of the dominant symptoms of these diseases and is often one of the side effects of the medical intervention required. This is particularly true of conventional oncological treatment – cancer-related exhaustion, also known as cancer fatigue, is the result of the impact of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and often leads to a weakening of the body’s defences.
Intracellular Glutathione Therapy can be used as a complementary treatment of cancer-related fatigue by increasing intracellular glutathione levels in the cancer patients.
What Are The Benefits of The Intracellular Glutathione Therapy?
Intravenous glutathione has been available for a number of years, but the glutathione molecule is quickly broken down by the body’s digestion which greatly reduces the amount that enters the bloodstream to be delivered where it is required.
Our Intracellular Glutathione Therapy overcomes this problem of bioavailability by using S-Acetyl Glutathione; acetylating the glutathione molecule means that greater amounts enter circulation in the body.
Does Glutathione Make You Tired?
Glutathione does not make you tired. However, this substance does contain
sleep-enhancing effects which allow you to sleep better at night. One study has
discovered that those who have increased levels of glutathione are also able to wake
up feeling refreshed in the morning and that the body is more capable of producing
glutathione during sleep.
What Does Intracellular Glutathione Therapy Entail?
At IV Boost UK, we offer the following treatment programme for those wanting to embark on our Intracellular Glutathione Therapy: first, a blood test is required to assess your current glutathione levels. On the basis of that blood test, we can develop a treatment protocol, although typically you’ll be expected to follow the programme for up to six weeks.
At that point, a second blood test will be performed and if glutathione levels have reached a satisfactory level then you can be moved to a maintenance programme that involves monthly infusions.
