Glutathione is a tripeptide that is present in high concentrations in almost all cells of the body. It is one of the most important antioxidant substances in the body. Glutathione is formed from the three amino acids glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine and is regarded as a strong cell activator and detoxifier. Glutathione is indispensable for the vitality and functionality of cells, not only in cell division, but also in combating cell toxins and activating defence cells.
Due to these prerequisites, glutathione has become increasingly interesting for cancer research in recent years. Animal experiments and initial clinical studies have confirmed a better tolerability of chemotherapy and radiation therapy if patients are supported with glutathione for a certain period of time.
There is also evidence that glutathione infusions can reduce the risk of relapse and contribute to the regression of metastases or recurrences.
In our outpatient clinic, high-dose glutathione infusions with other immunomodulators such as mistletoe, thymus, enzymes or cytokines are successfully used, partly supported by other antioxidants such as selenium and vitamins.
The strong detoxifying and cell-activating effect is also suitable for general detoxification treatment and revitalisation under heavy stress, chronic fatigue syndrome and for concomitant treatment of burnout syndrome.
