IV(intravenous) glutathione therapy
Are you tired of your skin looking dull, dark and lifeless? Is your complexion making you self conscious? Then you must try intravenous glutathione therapy. The secret behind Kajol’s beauty and Shilpa Shetty’s transformation, intravenous glutathione therapy is here to stay.
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a naturally occurring anti-oxidant found in the liver. It helps in repair of body tissues, neutralization of free radicals, boost in immunity and delaying the process of ageing. With time, the concentration of glutathione dips in the liver that can accelerate the aging process. This can be replenished via intravenous or oral glutathione.

Glutathione drips directly injects glutathione into your blood system. This bypasses the gut and stomach so the bioavailability of glutathione is more and the effect is more stark and immediate. Glutathione pills have slower onset of action but are safer in comparison to the iv drips.
