A breath of wellness: The power of inhaled glutathione

Updated: Dec 31, 2023

Protect your lungs as respiratory illness cases are on the rise. Nebulizing the "master antioxidant," glutathione is a great way to stave off illness during the vulnerable winter months.

Glutathione, also known as the "master antioxidant," is a molecule that is made up of 3 amino acids: cysteine, glutamine, and glycine. Glutathione is naturally produced in the body and plays an important role in neutralizing harmful free radicals, supporting the immune system, and helping with detoxification processes.

The power of inhaled glutathione


We are in the season when respiratory illnesses are at a high and finding innovative ways to support our health becomes paramount. This is where nebulizing glutathione comes into play.


What are nebulizers?


Nebulizers are devices that convert liquid medications into a fine mist that can easily be inhaled into the lungs and sinuses. When it comes to glutathione, nebulizing allows for direct delivery of this master antioxidant into the respiratory system, enhancing its efficacy for increased respiratory health.


Benefits amidst rising RSV cases


Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is gaining attention in the media and health communities because of the increased number of cases nationwide. But how is glutathione, specifically in nebulized form, beneficial?


Respiratory and immune system support: Glutathione is naturally present in the lungs where it maintains respiratory health. Nebulizer treatments offer a targeted approach directly to lungs and sinuses. This provides help during respiratory challenges. Glutathione signals an immune response to the lungs and sinuses to breakdown possible congestion and to ward off potential pathogens.


Antioxidant defense: In times of oxidative stress, such as those that happen during infections (RSV illness, for example), the body's natural antioxidant defenses may need reinforcement. Glutathione delivered directly to the lungs and sinuses via nebulizer may help in fighting oxidative damage.


Beyond RSV: Benefits for general wellness


While immune and respiratory health is a big focus, especially with the rise of RSV cases, it is important to recognize the overall benefits of inhaled glutathione.


Detoxification support: Glutathione is a key component in the body's detoxification processes. Nebulizer treatments help the detoxification processes by supporting the removal of harmful substances and pathogens from the respiratory system.


Anti-aging properties: As we age, the natural production of glutathione decreases. Nebulizer treatments are an easy way to increase and maintain glutathione levels within the body. This will contribute to overall well-being and potentially slow down the aging process by increasing antioxidant levels.
