• Glutathione is effective in helping with skin lightening if you take it in a greater dosage. The most advisable Glutathione dosage is 500-1,000mg daily. It is also recommends to take Vitamin C (500-1,000mg) ascorbic acid to be able to maximise its lightening effect. The skin-whitening treatment has been one of the most sought-after procedures that need good clinical results. It is a tedious process and many might even go for the cheapest way to get the best skin lightening effect (see side effects). IV Glutathione is never a far-reaching option for those who can afford it.

• Due to its tremendous detoxifying abilities, glutathione is an excellent treatment for acne, eczema, psoriasis, and any skin ailment.

• Glutathione prolongs the anagen stage of the hair cycle, which means a reduction in hair loss in many individuals.
