Nebulized Glutathione at Vis Clinic
Functional, Naturopathic, and Environmental medicine utilizes Glutathione. Glutathione (GSH) is a very important antioxidant in the human body, helping to fight oxidation. In particular, GSH is the major antioxidant in the lung. When the lung tissue is exposed to toxins and other factors that increase oxidative stress, GSH concentrations are depleted and sometimes blocked from being recycled back into its usable form. When lungs are stressed with respiratory tract infections & Lung disease their capacity to clear immune factors and fight against viral and bacterial sources becomes challenged. Increasing GSH concentrations in the lung therefore can be beneficial in getting over a cold and recovering lung function.
The delivery method is very important to ensure it reaches the lungs. For lung disease, Nebulized GSH administration has been heralded as the best delivery source over oral or injected. Nebulization administers the glutathione in the form of a mist that is inhaled into the lungs delivering intact GSH directly to the lungs and upper respiratory tract.
Typical treatments last about 10-15 minutes and can be done several times a week for 4-6 weeks for chronic conditions and less frequent for acute and/or maintenance purposes.
