The master antioxidant glutathione’s presence is essential for the health of the body, as it prevents ageing, heart disease, cancer, dementia and more. Glutathione is a substance found in the body’s cells, where it functions as an antioxidant to reduce the effects of free radicals and avert cellular damage.

Good Sources Of Glutathione
The good news is that the human body is capable of producing its own glutathione. But the toxins from pollution, poor diet, stress, trauma, medications, radiation and ageing reduce the levels of Glutathione. Foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, onion, avocado, carrots, garlic, tomatoes, eggs and red meat are rich source of glutathione.

The Glutathione Treatment
It’s natural for everyone to desire rejuvenated, brighter looking skin that show no signs of ageing and pigmentation. So luckily, with the growing advancement in the cosmetology field, the infusion of the natural antioxidant glutathione is now feasible. The Glutathione treatment is effective, affordable and safe. It helps in lightening and the rejuvenation of the skin. It also slows down the process of ageing.

Glutathione treatment usually starts with the help of either tables or in the form of glutathione injections. Injections are preffered for faster results, as tablets take time to get absorbed. If taken in the right amount, the only side effect of glutathione is skin lightening. Usually, it takes about three to four months for the results from glutathione to show. People with lighter skin will be able to see the results in a span of three months, while those with darker skin, need to wait for six to twelve months.
