Glutathione and its Health Benefits

Glutathione is very popular when it comes to helping especially cancer patients.. But in today’s generation, Glutathione is associated with whitening. People believed that this is the nature of Glutathione, or the effect when it is administered whether in a capsule form which is oral intake or via intravenous which is IV insertion.        

“Glutathione a peptide C10H17N3O6S that contains one amino acid residue each of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, that occurs widely in plant and animal tissues, and that plays an important role in biological oxidation-reduction processes and as a coenzyme.“(

          “Glutathione acts as an important antioxidant in your body. That means it helps combat free radicals. These are molecules that can damage your body’s cells. Glutathione plays a role in many chemical reactions in your body. It also helps detoxify chemicals, including some that your body creates naturally, as well as pollutants and drugs.”(

Filipino women assumed that when you have a fair skin tone or “maputi” you are admired by many, not just men but some other women too, but not all are obsessed with whitening there are some are proud of what skin color or skin tone they have. But since our unique skin tone is not that fair because we are born Filipinos, “Kayumanggi” which is the best word that can describe our color. Some women may develop insecurity because of their skin tone and so thinking that by getting glutathione consumption they will achieve the skin tone that they want.

Glutathione drip or commonly known as Gluta drip is administer via intravenously, a cannula or scalp vein set which does have a butterfly wing is inserted for intravenous insertion. Glutathione push or well-known as Gluta push  is also administer intravenously but with scalp vein set only and the syringe with the complete glutathione solution in it.

Based on my experience, since I am a Registered Nurse and I do have Intravenous Training before I can get an Intra Venous Therapy License (IVT License), we must have at least 3 or 5 cases wherein we need to find adult and pediatric patient anywhere in the hospital in adult ward or specifically in Orthopedics ward, OB-Gyne ward, etc or pediatric as long as it is for Intravenous Insertion so in that training,  I was able to sharpen my skills as an IV therapist or being knowledgeable when it comes to Intravenous Insertion because it is the skills that are important when you are a nurse.

According to different clients on youtube, I have watched their reviews and feedbacks and what they experienced in their first session of glutathione drip, the majority of them say that in their first session they experienced being exhausted. There is this guy also that after he had his first glutathione drip he literally want to do anything but to go to sleep maybe because the body is adjusting to the high levels of glutathione that was infused or administered to them and that experience they will never forget since it’s their first time for that kind of thing J Some clients say that they’ve experienced a good sleep while having that drip and as time goes by and a numerous sessions like 6th, 7th 8th and so on they have seen the effect of whitening in glutathione drip. I also noticed that I don’t get cough and colds easily as one of the benefits of Glutathione is to boost the immune system.

It come to my attention about this glutathione drip because of a lot of good feedbacks from those who try it. It took me two weeks to start my first session of glutathione drip because I find it hard to look for cheapest and authentic glutathione supplier.

While the IV push is ongoing, I stop holding the syringe just to take a picture for documentation. Hehehe 🙂

In my experience of having a glutathione drip, I am administering it on my own since it’s expensive when you have it on spas and by that, I already save 40% but this is only advisable for those who are trained to do Intravenous Insertion or if you have a friend who is a nurse. The same thing as clients I’ve watched on YouTube except for whitening since I am still new to glutathione drip sessions as of this writing. I noticed that my Urticaria is slowly reduced unlike before of not having a drip session. There is this one time that I reheat the pizza I accidentally hit the rollers in the oven which got me slight burns and eventually develop into the scar and as days passed by I’ve observed that the scar is slowly reduced in just several days. I also noticed that I am having a positive outlook in the morning and throughout the day by thinking of ways on how to be productive.

As an individual, I am not saying that you should also try it but still be cautious because some are using it or some are giving services to the clients thru per session without the proper preparation of the glutathione solution by that these may lead to serious health problems due to air embolism. This complication arises when the one who administers it doesn’t have the proper knowledge on the preparation of glutathione solution.
