Are Glutathione Tablets Effective? 

tablets and pills forming a question mark

Glutathione is one of the most important components of the human body. It’s a master antioxidant that boosts your immune system, aids in cell growth and regeneration, neutralizes free radicals, and detoxifies your body. Healthy levels of glutathione in your system can improve your way of life and keep you younger for longer.

This article aims to determine the best way to boost your glutathione levels if your body isn’t producing enough. We’ll look at three of the most popular methods of ingesting glutathione and help you decide which method is right for you.

Glutathione Tablets

One somewhat effective way to boost your glutathione is by taking an oral supplement such as a gluta pill or tablet. However, recent studies have people asking, “Are glutathione tablets effective?” Unfortunately, glutathione tends to get broken down by enzymes in the stomach before it can be effective.

Glutathione tablets and pills are the cheapest and easiest way to increase your glutathione levels but they’re also the least effective and most unreliable.

IV Glutathione Therapy

Overall, IV glutathione therapy is the best way of getting glutathione into your body in a meaningful way. IV therapy injects glutathione directly into your bloodstream, which carries it throughout the body. You’ll feel the effects much quicker than with other forms of glutathione treatment.


  • Gets glutathione directly into the bloodstream for instant results
  • Allows you to mix glutathione with other important vitamins and fluids such as Vitamin C
  • Studies are showing that mixing glutathione with Vitamin C is better than glutathione alone
  • Perfectly safe when performed by skilled nurses who follow the proper safety procedures


  • While IV therapy is mostly safe, there’s the risk of IV infiltration if not administered correctly
  • IV therapy can be slightly pricey and requires several treatments for full effectiveness

Glutathione Shots

While not quite as effective as IV therapy, glutathione shots are quite comparable. A shot allows glutathione to get directly into various parts of your body and provides fairly quick effects. Shots also will enable you to mix ingredients with glutathione in smaller doses and amounts for increased effectiveness.
