Restore Your Skin Complexion with the Master Antioxidant
Glutathione, otherwise known as L-Glutathione or GSH, is a naturally-occurring amino acid that plays a vital role in the body’s immune system, decreasing oxidative stress and regulating growth and repair. Composed of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, this tripeptide boosts the ability of white blood cells to fight infection and provides antioxidant protection for the arteries, brain, heart, liver, lungs, skin, and other soft tissue. Since the highest concentration of natural glutathione is found in the liver, it also plays a critical role in ridding the body of free radicals and other toxins.
While GSH is found in some healthy foods such as walnuts, avocados, tomatoes, and oranges, supplementing GSH either intravenously or in pill form can reinforce our body’s own natural antioxidant capabilities, as well as lightening skin and maintaining a healthy complexion.
Antioxidant and Skin-lightening Capabilities
Glutathione supplements are made of all-natural amino acids that is found in nature and in our bodies. It can be taken orally, in pill form, or for more powerful results through regular injections at the Gentle Touch Aesthetics and Wellness. Injections are generally recommended to ensure that 100% of the dose enters the bloodstream, especially as the body’s ability to absorb oral supplements diminishes with age. GSH offers two important benefits:
- It is a powerful natural antioxidant. In fact, it has sometimes been called the “master antioxidant”, as it recycles other antioxidants in your body such as vitamin C & E. Regular injections of GSH may help boost the immune system, promote the function of white blood cells, and neutralizing environmental toxins such as motor vehicle exhaust, cigarette smoke, household chemicals, and other pollutants. GSH also enables the body to rid itself of free radicals created by the body’s natural metabolism, reducing free radical damage and slowing down the aging process.
- GSH injections have been shown to promote lighter, healthier skin tone. Environmental pollutants and sun damage contribute to the build-up of free radicals and toxins in the skin, leading to serious problems such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sun spots. GSH helps clear the body of these free radicals and toxins, leading to clearer, lighter, more even skin tone. Regular GSH injections can also reduce the appearance of red spots and rough patches and help promote smooth skin texture. GSH can be highly beneficial for individuals seeking to improve or maintain their skin complexion.
