Like oxygen, water, and nourishment, glutathione is an essential tripeptide required for life. Made primarily in your liver and found in virtually every human cell, it is the body’s master antioxidant and arguably the most potent barrier against disease, toxin, and mutation. It is likewise a key factor to first-line-of-defense immune response, rebound, and repair. Although critical glutathione levels will lower as we age, depletion can be accelerated by stress, illness, infection, poor diet, alcohol, cigarettes, trauma, and environmental toxins. This depletion can manifest itself in ways that might include impaired nutrient absorption and assimilation, gut, lung, eye, blood, skin, and brain issues, keloid scarring, mitochondrial stress for lower energy output, DNA mutation, mass oxidation, and free radical overload. Theranaturals Reduced L-Glutathione Plus™ is engineered for enhanced absorption and potency with ultra purity grade OPITAC glutathione and sodium bicarbonate. We do not use fillers, excipients, or flow agents. Naturally support optimal cellular function and immune response with Reduced L-Glutathione Plus™. Live life, Breathe easy, Enjoy!
How to prepare:
Break capsule open and empty content into container or nebulizer cup. Add 1-3 ml (~1/2 tsp) distilled or DI water or pure saline solution. Let stand or agitate briefly until the solution is perfectly clear. It’s now ready to use.
Note: When mixed with distilled or DI water or saline solution, Reduced L-Glutathione Plus™ becomes isotonic, making it comfortably ideal for lung, nasal, and other soft tissue contact.
TIPS: The capsules should separate easily by gently squeezing on the larger portion and twisting. If you have trouble gripping the capsule in your fingers, a tablet cutter or straight razor can be helpful. Add powder into nebulizer cup before liquids.
HIGH HUMIDITY LOCATION TIPS: For those of you in high humidity areas, place silica desiccant inside bottle or bottle in a Zip-Loc bag (once opened). If placing in the refrigerator, place the bottle inside the Zip-Loc bag with a desiccant inside the bag – NOT IN THE BOTTLE. This is important to keep moisture away from the capsules and outside of the bottle. Refrigerators have higher humidity and the Desiccant can pull it into the bottle. Reports from those doing this have been very good. No “turned” capsules for extended periods of time. If in a hot and humid location, follow refrigerator desiccant instructions.
Sulfer Smell: Glutathione is organically made and has a sulfur bond in the amino acid chain. As such, GLutahtione has a characteristic sulfur or egg smell. This is normal. The product has not gone bad.
SULFITE REACTION MYTH BUSTING: There is NO free sulfur in glutathione – it is a tripeptide with a y-bonded carboxyl group. You can not be allergic to it (no such thing as a sulfite reaction to Reduced GLutathione). It is required for life and is safe to use.
Nebulizers: We do not recommend the use of Ultra-Jet, heat-based vaporizers, or any enhanced high-speed type nebulizers with this product – Doctors have reported mixed results such as GSH breakdown and clogging. Any normal or standard nebulizer should work. This said, we have tested and can recommend the following nebulizers:
Omron NE-C801 Lightweight, Omron NE-C30 Compact Portable, or Omron NE-U22V Ultra Compact Portable
Important note for the Omron NE-U22V Ultra Compact Portable: Run distilled or DI water through the nebulizer after each use for at least a minute to clean out any residue. Sterilize after this as instructed by Omron for this product.
NOTE: the above-tested nebulizers are NOT REQUIRED to use our glutathione. Any standard nebulizer should work fine. Ask your doctor for a recommendation
Warning: it is not recommended that you take glutathione if you are undergoing chemo or radiation therapy for cancer or any other condition. As a powerful antioxidant, glutathione can cancel out the treatments and render them ineffective. Consult with your doctor first before supplementation. In addition, it is not recommended to take Whey Protein Isolate or NAC while undergoing cancer radiation or Chemo treatments. These will increase glutathione levels in the body which can likewise render the treatments ineffective.
Warning: If you have been exposed to the black mold Stachybotrys chartarum (a toxic mold that infects the lungs) and have a lung infection suspected or diagnosed to be related, it is not recommended that you nebulize (oral is okay) with glutathione until the mold is treated by a medical professional via antifungals. The black mold appears to absorb the free glutathione very readily through its slime head and protects itself from the normal human immune response. Use extreme caution if you suspect a Stachybotrys chartarum infection and toxicity or have been diagnosed with a related Stachybotrys chartaum issue by a medical professional.
