What about IV Glutathione and Parkinson's Disease?

I have been reading about glutathione IV treatments for slowing down or improving the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. However, it only seems to be practiced in the alternative field. Has anyone had real experience with this treatment to validate its effectiveness and safety?


Answer:


To find out if there is experience and safety using glutathione for Parkinson’s Disease, you can go to PubMed, where all of the published, peer reviewed clinical trials are posted.

As of September 2011, there are 779 medical studies published here that come up when you type in “glutathione Parkinson’s Disease.” So there is an established relationship there. What is the relationship?

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP, is the world’s most published author on the subject of glutathione. In his bestseller “Glutathione - Your Key To Health”, this is what he has to say based on the medical research published thus far in the conclusion of Chapter 7 entitled “Parkinson’s Disease”:

“Parkinson’s disease is characterized by a loss of the brain cells that regulate dopamine. Significant evidence points to the role of oxidative stress and dramatically low glutathione (GSH) levels as critical contributing causes of this damage.

Studies have demonstrated that protecting these cells from damage and death by raising GSH levels can succeed both in the laboratory and in patients and is a welcome addition to conventional medical treatments.”


Since IV glutathione therapy is expensive, and has a short half life, there are other ways to raise and sustain glutathione that cost less and can be taken daily in your own home.

The most thoroughly studied ways are commented on in this book, and include N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) and bonded cysteine. Of all the ways mentioned, Dr. Gutman recommends the bonded cysteine supplement Immunocal to safely raise and sustain glutathione for regular daily usage.

Immunocal is the most effective, safe, and natural way to raise and sustain your glutathione.
