1How does Glutathione Therapy work and what does it treat?

By getting your body’s glutathione levels back to optimal level, your body is better able to eliminate contaminants. On a chemical level, glutathione contains three different types of amino acids (or the building blocks of proteins) and healthy sulfurs. Because of that composition, glutathione attracts contaminants like heavy metals and toxins, then enhances the elimination of them.

For treatment purposes, it can be used for any number of things. From getting the body back in balance to helping manage diseases like Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s. In fact, because higher levels of glutathione help decrease inflammation, glutathione therapy can be used to help with: allergies, asthma, COPD, memory loss, and heart disease.
