Like oxygen, water, and nourishment, glutathione is an essential tripeptide required for life. Made primarily in your liver and found in virtually every human cell, it is the body’s master antioxidant and arguably the most potent barrier against disease, toxin, and mutation. It is likewise a key factor in first-line-of-defense immune response, rebound, and repair. Although critical glutathione levels will lower as we age, depletion can be accelerated by stress, illness, infection, poor diet, alcohol, cigarettes, trauma, and environmental toxins. This depletion can manifest itself in ways that might include impaired nutrient absorption and assimilation, gut, lung, eye, blood, skin, and brain issues, keloid scarring, mitochondrial stress for lower energy output, DNA mutation, mass oxidation, and free radical overload (1). Theranaturals Reduced L-Glutathione Plus™ is engineered for enhanced absorption and potency with ultra purity USP grade glutathione and sodium bicarbonate. We do not use fillers, excipients, or flow agents. Naturally support optimal cellular function and immune response and Live life, Breathe easy, Enjoy!

How to prepare:
Mix it when you need it so it’s always fresh. Break capsule/s open and empty the content into a container/cup. Add 3 ml (~1/2 tsp) distilled or DI water or pure saline solution to the container/cup. Let agitate briefly until the solution is clear. It’s now ready to use.
Water to capsule ratio:
- 1-3 capsules: 3 ml water
- 4 capsules: 4 ml water
- 5 capsules: 5 ml water
- 6 capsules: 6 ml water
Note: When mixed with distilled or DI water or saline solution, Reduced L-Glutathione Plus™ becomes isotonic, making it comfortably ideal for lung, nasal, and other soft tissue contact.
TIPS: The capsules should separate easily by gently squeezing on the larger portion and twisting. If you have trouble gripping the capsule in your fingers, a tablet cutter or straight razor can be helpful. Add powder into container/cup before liquids.
HIGH HUMIDITY LOCATION TIPS:
- If bottle is sealed, place inside of Zip-Loc bag with silica desiccant inside bag.
- If opened, you may place desiccant inside bottle or keep in Zip-Loc bag (best results have been seen with the Zip-Loc bag method).
- If placing in the refrigerator, place the bottle inside the Zip-Loc bag with a desiccant inside the bag – NOT IN THE BOTTLE. This is important to keep moisture away from the capsules and outside of the bottle. Refrigerators have higher humidity and the Desiccant can pull humidity into the bottle and over the capsules – accelerating the oxidation of the product. Reports from using the ziplock bag method in the refrigerator have been very good – no “turned” capsules for extended periods of time.
- If in a hot and humid location, follow refrigerator desiccant instructions.
Oxygen absorber: You may place an oxygen absorber in the bottle once opened. This can slow down oxidation and extend the active life of the product.
Expiration: “MFG” date on the bottom of the bottle is Manufacture Date, not expiration. The product is generally good for up to 3 years from this date if stored properly (in high humidity and hot locations this time is shortened).
Sulfur Smell: Glutathione is organic with a characteristic sulfur or egg smell. This is normal. The product has not gone bad.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A SULFITE ALLERGY/REACTION TO GLUTATHIONE? No. See FAQs for more details.
CAUTION: it is not recommended that you take glutathione if you are undergoing chemo or radiation therapy for cancer or any other condition. As a powerful antioxidant, glutathione can cancel out the treatments and render them ineffective. Consult with your doctor first before supplementation. In addition, it is not recommended to take Whey Protein Isolate or NAC while undergoing cancer radiation or Chemo treatments. These will increase glutathione levels in the body which can likewise render the treatments ineffective.
CAUTION: If you have been exposed to the black mold Stachybotrys chartarum and have a lung infection suspected or diagnosed to be related, it is not recommended that you nebulize (oral is okay) with glutathione until the mold is treated by a medical professional via antifungals. The black mold appears to absorb the free glutathione in the lungs very readily through its slime head and protects itself from the normal human immune response. Use extreme caution if you suspect a Stachybotrys chartarum lung infection and toxicity or have been diagnosed with a related Stachybotrys chartaum issue by a medical professional.
