Has anyone experimented comparing sublingual glutathione vs taking glutathione precursors like NAC? I read that taking glutathione orally does no good because it is not absorbed.
This video on intravenous glutathione for a parkinsons patient is nothing short of remarkable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHYey8vELTg
I'm getting weekly glutathione intravenous injections right now with the hopes of calming an over active immune system that is causing skin issues and chronic sinusitis. We have obviously ruled out a million different causes and thanks to my naturopath, is now treating this systemically. The ND says she gives it intravenously because then you get 100% absorption. Ive had 3 injections so far but no changes in sx's yet, though I suspect it may take several more injections and years of clean eating before I might notice changes in a problem that's been plaguing me 15+ years. After an injection I feel short term increase in energy and good cheer, then about two days later the detox sx's set in and I feel a little foggy and tired, but nothing too bothersome. My ND is in Seattle if you're interested in learning more.
Tried cold filtered whey?
I now use Milk Thistle plus a better absorbed milk thistle extract in phospholipid form. I did take NAC but read recently about excitotoxin effect of NAC, Aspartate, Glutamine and some other aminos in addition to Glutamate, and thought it might have been the explanation for my own response to them. "Correct the spice" to your own taste and the supplement to your own baseline and reaction.
I've been taking it for about two weeks now, but don't notice any huge effects in anything - then again, we were caught up in Sandy and had no power for that time, so perhaps the stress of that negated any noticeable effects.
I tried the liposomal glutathione and noticed an effect. I now wonder what my glutathione status was before- I assume it was pretty low. The most obvious effect was that red wine went back to being fun rather than a source of pain. I've tried the NAC/vitamin C thing to mitigate such pains, but the liposomal glutathione just erases it, and I could sleep so much better too. Now I am trying acetyl-glutathione, at only a 100mg a day because I am trying to keep the costs down. I haven't had any wine recently, so I can't compare the two directly on that particular test- and, of course, I was taking +400mg a day of the other stuff. Indeed, the first day I got the liposomal stuff I took multiple doses in one day (felt energetic), but then I read the label and realized that there were only 24 doses and at the rate I was going I'd blow through that in 8 days.
Liposomal glutathione is made with soy lethicin, which can be a problem. I noticed two pimples and some little patches of stuff I used to have on my eyelids tried to make a comeback while I was on it, so I don't think it is a good long term solution. I did stumble across somebody theorizing about how to make it at home since regular glutathione is pretty cheap- then I wondered if something other than lethicin could be used. How about a glutathione mayo? I don't know exactly what the lethicin is doing, but it is often used to emusify- could egg yolks work?
My daughter started taking this per our homeopathic doc. She went from needing her inhaler daily at school right after recess to almost NEVER! Its great! She uses a liquid form and i could not be happier with the results!!!! : )
