Glutathione and Covid recovery go together like ibuprofen and a headache. In other words, glutathione Covid IV can be used as a treatment method to aid in Covid recovery.

This article will look at the current research about glutathione for Covid recovery and explain the current understanding of how it helps. The client doesn’t offer a glutathione IV Covid treatment, but they offer add-ons and glutathione as part of their Immune Boost and All-Inclusive IVs, so please include a pitch for those.

What is Glutathione, and How Does it Relate to Covid?

Glutathione is a biological antioxidant. It is found in the mitochondria of all the tissues mammals have and is plays a significant part in lessening oxidative stress. It is a pleiotropic tripeptide comprised of glycine, cysteine, and glutamate. Free synthesis happens between cells in two steps. The first step uses glutamine and cysteine as substrates and is catalyzed (sped up) by glutamine-cysteine ligase (GSL).1

This produces glutamyl cysteine. The second step in the process then adds glycine to glutamyl cysteine, which is catalyzed by glutathione synthase (GS).2

Endogenous glutathione deficiency is the most likely cause of severe illness and death due to Covid.3

There is also evidence that glutathione can inhibit viral replication and decrease levels of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB), which means that it has also been found to be beneficial to Coivid patients. Glutathione post Covid treatment is used in conjunction with other Covid therapies and treatments. Glutathione and coronavirus are also related in the long-term which means that long Covid symptoms can be diminished by glutathione treatments.
