Glutathione And Parkinson's Disease


High Dose Glutathione Therapy And Parkinson’s Disease

As one of the most potent antioxidants in the body, high-dose glutathione is a natural treatment for Parkinson’s with powerful advantages. Antioxidants are natural substances that protect cells from damage. Every day, each one of the cells in the body produces waste products that cause oxidative damage. Similarly, each cell is also exposed to oxidative damage caused by outside chemicals and toxins. The cells need antioxidants to neutralize and repair the oxidative damage. This allows the cells to live healthier and longer.

High dose glutathione therapy, or IV glutathione, is a natural treatment for Parkinson’s disease that can replenish the body and the brain with glutathione. It can improve brain function and health at the cellular level. This, in turn, helps protect the brain from further damage.


The Benefits Of High Dose Glutathione Therapy Can Include The Following:

Reduce Oxidative Stress: Oxidative stress significantly contributes to the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease. In PD, harmful free radicals cause oxidative stress and cellular damage to the dopaminergic neurons. Dopaminergic neurons are the neurons responsible for dopamine production. Glutathione reduces oxidative damage from free radicals and, therefore, can improve the health of the dopaminergic neurons.

Improving Mitochondrial Function: Mitochondria are the powerhouse of each and every cell. It is the part of the cells that makes energy so that cells can live. Mitochondrial dysfunction is another critical concern of Parkinson’s disease. Healthy mitochondria are essential for neuronal health and function. Glutathione has been shown to support mitochondrial function.

Neuroprotective Properties: Some studies have suggested that increasing glutathione levels can offer neuroprotection for Parkinson’s Disease. Glutathione may help to slow down the degeneration of the dopaminergic neurons. This may help alleviate PD-related symptoms and slow down the progression of Parkinson’s disease.

Improved Cellular and Immune Function: Cellular health is what will determine overall health. Specifically, in Parkinson’s disease, glutathione can improve the health of the brain and nerve cells which can diminish the effects of the disease. Any tissue that is damaged needs to be repaired by the immune system. Glutathione aids the immune system in this process.

Improved Detoxification: Removal of toxic waste is integral for healthy bodily functions. Glutathione will help remove the cellular waste products so that cells are able to function as best as they can.

There Are Several Different Ways That High Dose Of Glutathione Can Be Administered:

Oral: Oral glutathione can be taken in capsule form. This is one of the least expensive and easiest methods to ensure higher levels of glutathione in the body on a daily basis.

Nasal: There is some research to support that administering glutathione in a spray through the nose will allow the glutathione to more easily cross the blood-brain barrier. This allows for potentially more glutathione to enter the brain where it is most needed.

Intravenous: High doses of glutathione can be administered through the even and can enter directly into the bloodstream. Using IV glutathione allows the most amount of glutathione to enter the body and can have the most positive effects.


Glutathione is one of the human body’s best anti-oxidants. In Parkinson’s disease, there becomes an issue with oxidative damage in the brain as well as lower levels of glutathione. In the clinical progression of Parkinson’s, lower levels of glutathione relate to the increased severity of the disease. Glutathione is imperative to help the body remove free radicals. Free radicals are formed by the normal processes of the body and are increased with chemical and environmental exposure to toxins. Without glutathione, the brain cannot handle free radicals as well, and more damage occurs. With the help of Intravenous glutathione, the brain has more tools to help remove the damaging free radicals.

If you or a loved one is considering using glutathione as part of a Parkinson’s treatment plan, consult a healthcare professional. They can provide guidance on appropriate supplementation, and potential interactions with other medications and help you make informed decisions about your treatment approach.
