Perfect therapy for any acute/chronic lung or breathing issues -- even babies and toddlers can do this therapy!



Glutathione

Nebulized Glutathione is used to treat a number of upper and lower respiratory conditions. Gluathione is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Chronic rhinitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

What Is Glutathione and How Is It Administered?

Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and immune system modulator. It is a naturally occurring compound produced in most cells in the body and is composed of 3 amino acids. Because it is an antioxidant it used in a wide variety of treatments. It can be administered in a wide variety of ways as well, from oral ingestion of capsules to intravenous injection. Nebulizing (also known as aerosolizing) a solution of glutathione allows direct administration to the respiratory tract including the lungs. This improves the therapeutic benefit for those suffering from respiratory tract disorders.

What Is Glutathione Used For In The Body And How Does It Help With Respiratory Disorders?

In respiratory disorders, Nebulized Glutathione has been shown to:

  • Improve immune system function by increasing the numbers of white blood cells (specifically Cytotoxic T cells)
  • Functions as a mucolytic; it helps to decrease the amount and thickness of the mucous produced in the respiratory tract
  • Improve pulmonary function by helping to increase total lung capacity (ie. the volume of air able to be taken in by the lungs)
  • Increase oxygen saturation of red blood cells; this increases the amount of oxygen carried to every cell in the body
  • Reduces ear fullness, nasal obstruction and rhinorrhea (chronic runny nose); all symptoms of those suffering from chronic rhinitis
  • Improves antioxidant concentration in the respiratory tract and thus decreases oxidant induced damage to lung tissue
  • Decreases smoking induced damage to lung tissue

Inhalation therapy is a safe and simple respiratory treatments for the whole family. Even babies can get this therapy.
