Benefits of Glutathione IV Therapy in Orange County, CA
How Glutathione IV Treatments Detoxify, Protect and Enhance Every Cell in Your Body
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a naturally-occurring peptide produced by every cell in the human body, including immune cells. This powerhouse molecule is made up of three essential amino acids: cysteine, glutamate and glycine.
Glutathione is an extremely powerful antioxidant and key to almost all body functions. When glutathione is depleted it results in cell death. When glutathione levels are sufficiently high it protects your cells from damage by free radicals, among other benefits.
Benefits of Glutathione
Glutathione has outstanding and far-reaching benefits for health, beauty and longevity. It has been widely studied and is known as “the mother of all antioxidants.”
- Glutathione improves immune function and helps fight and prevent disease
- Glutathione lightens and brightens skin by erasing hyper-pigmentation and inhibiting melanin production in cells
- Glutathione reduces inflammation
- Glutathione helps your body break down and purge fat
- Glutathione keeps your body from becoming resistant to drugs
- Glutathione promotes high energy and mental clarity
- Glutathione has anti-aging properties
- Glutathione can improve quality of sleep and combat stress from sleep apnea
- Glutathione is the ultimate detoxifier and fights oxidative stress
High glutathione levels directly correspond to overall health and function for every system in your body. Your cells make glutathione, but usually not enough to deal with the high levels of free radicals (from environmental toxins, alcohol, stress and more) we encounter daily.
Boost your glutathione levels quickly and easily in our Costa Mesa IV hydration clinic or let our mobile IV service bring the boost to you!
Glutathione and Your Skin
Glutathione has been shown to lighten skin tone. How? Glutathione binds to the enzyme responsible for melanin production and reduces activity. In addition, GSH reduces free radical activity throughout the body which further prevents activation of melanin-producing enzymes.
Glutathione not only lightens the skin, it helps minimize and prevent dark marks, scars and age spots, especially when added to our anti-aging IV hydration treatment. Glutathione also detoxifies the liver, which results in brighter, clearer skin.
Oxidative stress is a known factor in acne breakouts. Glutathione reduces the effect of free radicals in the skin and can help prevent acne, wrinkles and fine lines.
Cost of Glutathione IV Therapy
Our IV infusions range in price from $99 to $225 depending on the size and formulation you choose. Most of our IV treatments cost $99 for a small bag and $175 for a large bag.

What Causes Low Levels of Glutathione?
Glutathione levels decrease as we age. Certain diseases and health conditions can also reduce glutathione supplies. Low levels of glutathione are linked to poor health. This is one reason why people are more likely to develop various health problems as they get older.
Health conditions linked to low glutathione levels include:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Liver cirrhosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
Health problems can cause decreased glutathione. You can also fail to produce enough glutathione due to genetic deficiencies and lack of the necessary enzymes.
Replenishing glutathione helps treat the symptoms of many health problems associated with low levels of this important antioxidant.
Why Choose Glutathione Intravenous Treatment?
Studies show eating or drinking glutathione supplements is not an effective way of increasing your blood levels of glutathione.
Glutathione IV infusion bypasses your digestive tract and delivers the powerful antioxidant directly to your bloodstream where it can do the most good. High levels of glutathione in your blood are carried to your brain, heart, lungs, muscle tissue and everywhere in your body so your cells can benefit from glutathione’s detoxifying and protective properties.There are some supplements shown to boost your body’s own production of glutathione:
- Vitamin C (taking Vitamin C with Glutathione can also increase absorption)
- Vitamin E
How well your body absorbs the supplement and produces glutathione depends on your unique body chemistry, age, health and many other factors. The best way to ensure you’re getting maximum absorption and the full benefits of glutathione is with an IV infusion.
Can Changing Your Diet Improve Glutathione Levels?
Glutathione is naturally made in cells, but requires a strict diet high in certain vitamins for efficient formation.
Some foods and supplements that boost the formation of glutathione are:
- Foods rich in Vitamins B6, B9, B12 & biotin
- Foods rich in Vitamin C & E
- Milk thistle
- Whey protein
- Sulfurous foods (see below)
Glutathione is not easily absorbed from food sources. However some foods high in sulfurous amino acids may help increase glutathione levels:
- Broccoli and Cauliflower
- Garlic and Onions
- Spinach and Kale
- Non-processed meat
An organic diet with abundant fresh produce can help your body produce more glutathione. But even an ideal diet may not be processed and absorbed ideally in the digestive system.
The best and fastest way to be sure you’re absorbing and benefiting glutathione is by skipping the digestive tract altogether and getting glutathione IV infusions at Boost Hydration.
Glutathione, the Brain and Moods
People diagnosed with depression, OCD, ADHD and schizophrenia have low glutathione levels. Many of the drugs prescribed to treat bipolar disorder work by boosting levels of glutathione in the cells.
Glutathione has also been shown to help reduce oxidative stress. Stress is a major symptom and contributing factor in many mental health imbalances.
Your brain is made up of more than 70% water and can’t function properly when dehydrated. Our Brain Boost IV treatment with a glutathione add-on boost will help keep you balanced, focused and energized!
Glutathione and Cancer Treatments
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant, helping the body remove excess free radicals. Stress and sickness can cause your body’s glutathione levels to become depleted very quickly.
When you’re sick or dealing with the side effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation, decrease and change in appetite can make getting enough of this important nutrient nearly impossible.
Supplementing your diet with IV glutathione infusions can help repair cells damaged by cancer treatments. Many cancer survivors using IV therapy report improving their quality of life much faster than by relying on glutathione from food alone.
Glutathione for Hangover IV Treatments
Alcohol consumption not only reduces glutathione levels in the liver, it causes oxidative stress. Glutathione can help you recover from a punishing hangover by adding extra detoxifying power so you can cleanse and renew your system.
Are There Side Effects from Glutathione?
There are many positive side effects from glutathione IV therapy!
More studies are needed on the long-term effects of glutathione treatment. The jury’s out on glutathione’s effects on pregnant or breastfeeding women, so check with your doctor before you begin.
In some studies, cystic fibrosis patients had adverse side effects following glutathione treatment.
As always, if you’re already on medication or a supplement regimen for any health condition be sure to speak with our doctor about the best IV treatment for you!
