I have been using Liposomal Glutathione for over a year...nearly everyday. I started using it after a Micronutrient test showing that I basically had ZERO. After about a year, I did another Micronutrient test and my Glutathione levels were nice and high. I didn't take Glutathione for 2 days before the test, but still had good levels. I've continued to take it as my stress levels are ridiculous all the time....basically fight or flight 24/7. I'll stop taking it once the stress levels go down, which I hope will be within 3-4 years. I've also had Adrenal fatigue (extremely LOW cortisol), hypothyroidism, etc...the list goes on an on. I take too many supplements and meds but I just figure I'll take them until life gets manageable. I'm convinced that stress causes most, if not all, of my health issues.
What lab did you use to pull this?
And what brand did you use for the liposomal glutathione? Sounds interesting...
I used Spectracell Micronutrient Testing both times. I recommend this test at least once per year to see how one is doing nutrient-wise.
I have been using Empirical Labs Liposomal Glutathione. It's what I used before the test so it works and its the least expensive option I have found ($45 per 4oz bottle including shipping).
I also used Spectracell testing, and was borderline low for glutathione. When you say it "works", what symptoms did you notice?
By "works", I meant that is caused a dramatic rise in my blood Glutathione levels. It's just one of MANY things that I take in order to function and get through each day. I "may" have noticed a little extra energy during the day but it's hard to narrow it down to one supplement. I'm not really a believer in one or two (or even ten or twenty) supplements that are going to "fix" your health. I just believe that supplementing can help to limit damage done during times of excessive stress. Extended excessive stress destroys gut health, destroys hormone levels, etc that leaves you open to serious illness/disease. One can't just snap their fingers and change their life, but they can supplement to limit damage until changes can be made over time. I don't believe in the shotgun approach either though, but taking supplements that are proven, through blood/saliva/stool testing, to be deficient.
I'm just glad we live in an age where hormone replacement is common. Hormone issues are far easier to address than gut issues simply due to the access of the hormones and blood testing. I hope that one day, science will figure out how to address gut issues more efficiently/effectively. At least this will provide an effective "bandage" to slap on to hold things together until more permanent fixes to life can happen.
