IV Vitamin Therapy
Many patients who come to our clinic for glutathione IV therapy are striving for brighter, younger, healthier-looking skin or for its powerful detoxifying capacity. However, this hard-working nutrient has many more benefits for your health, including reducing cellular damage and scavenging free radicals from the body.
Glutathione is a combination of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is known as the ‘master antioxidant’ – and for good reason! Naturally occurring in the liver, it is the body’s natural ‘detoxifier’ which works to clear toxins from the body. Glutathione is required by almost all body functions and is found in most cells in the body.
Glutathione production unfortunately decreases with age. This is one reason why age spots are common as we grow older. This decline in production worsens with a high-stress lifestyle, poor eating habits or poor quality food, excessive toxins like smoking, alcohol or environmental pollutants and poor sleep amongst other reasons.
When you don’t have enough in your body, it can suffer from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Many chronic health conditions are associated with low glutathione levels, including autoimmune diseases and heart disease.
Glutathione has many possible benefits including:
Improves the appearance of the skin (including dark spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, blemishes, liver spots, and signs of ageing).
Reverses the dark melanin pigments in the skin, thus reducing hyperpigmentation.
Improves pigmentation from sun-damaged skin.
Helps to strengthen immune function.
Breaks down free radicals which are created during exposure to hot and cold environmental temperatures, toxicity, and UV light from the sun. Additional sources of free radicals include exhaust fumes and pollutants for those in the City, and recirculated air for those who travel a lot by trains or planes.
Supports cell regeneration including tissue building, cell growth, and wound healing.
Aids detoxification of heavy metals.
Prevents oxidative cell damage.
It is a very powerful detox agent which can help to reduce cell damage in the liver and help counter the toxic effects of many drugs, malnutrition, and diseases (chronic or acute).
Glutathione can be administered either as a drip or a push. But what’s the difference? A glutathione drip and push are just different ways of delivering the nutrients to your cells. Glutathione isn’t easily absorbed from food sources; both IV drips and pushes bypass the gut (which is where many of the nutrients are lost when taken orally) and are delivered straight into your bloodstream to be used directly by your cells.

We use the very best quality vitamins and nutrients available and can tailor your IV vitamin therapy to your body’s exact requirements. Our glutathione is always delivered with Vitamin C as this increases absorption, irrespective of whether you opt for an IV push or an IV drip.
An initial consultation with our IV clinician is included in the cost of your appointment and will happen upon arrival at the clinic. We use this to not only make sure you are medically fit and well, but to help us understand your own needs and ensure the treatment is best suited to your body’s needs. If desired, we can further tailor by adding additional vitamins and nutrients. If you are deemed suitable you’ll receive the treatment straight away.
The procedure itself is carried out by our IV clinician.
