As we strive to connect our Chicago area patients with the latest treatments to improve their physical health and well-being, Olivera Health + Wellness is now offering glutathione supplementation with IV hydration therapy. Glutathione has been demonstrated to boost immune system functionality, detoxify the body and help to combat the effects of aging. It is a highly effective antioxidant targeting free radicals in the body.

Glutathione deficiency is commonly associated with a wide range of health conditions, including:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes and obesity

But even if you have not developed a glutathione deficiency as a result of a larger health problem, glutathione supplementation can still be a good fit for you. Consider a few of the ways that glutathione supplementation can improve your overall health:

  • White blood cells serve on the front lines of your body’s immune defenses, protecting against threats like bacteria, viruses, and fungal infections. Glutathione helps the body produce an adequate number of white blood cells, ensuring your immune system is functioning at its best.
  • Metals and other toxins can build up in your body, with many detrimental effects. Glutathione binds these toxins and transforms them into water-soluble compounds that can be transported out of your cells and excreted in bile or urine – making it an unparalleled detoxifier.
  • Accumulation of free radicals can cause oxidative stress that can damage the proteins in cell membranes and accelerate the effects of aging. Glutathione works with your body’s enzymes to fight these free radicals, keeping your cells in top condition and reducing stress.

Glutathione has no significant side effects and falls into the FDA’s “Generally Regarded as Safe” category. However, be advised that glutathione supplementation is not suggested for those receiving chemotherapy or anti-psychotic medications, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
