We are pleased to offer our high-grade Accesa Glutathione Injection.
The Accesa Glutathione Injection is an intravenous (IV) push of glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps detoxify the body and improve cellular health. The Accesa Glutathione injection costs $100 per treatment and is safe to receive once per week.

We offer our premium glutathione injection a la carte or through our membership programs. We recommend the membership programs to motivated customers who want to save money and commit regularly to their health and wellness:
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is found in humans as well as plants and animals. Because the body can make glutathione from the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid and glycine, it is not considered a nutrient that must be obtained from dietary sources (essential nutrient). Glutathione is highly concentrated within cells. Reduced glutathione (also called GSH) is the main antioxidant form and is composed of three amino acids. As an antioxidant, glutathione helps maintain a cell's overall health and its ability to reduce damage from toxins. Additionally, glutathione is thought to help other antioxidants (e.g. Vitamin E) maintain their stability in the body.
The antioxidant effects of IV glutathione relate to its ability to help clean up free radicals (atoms with unpaired electrons) in the body. Free radicals can occur from body stressors such as cigarette smoking, taking medications, exposure to solvents and pesticides, aerobic exercise, infections, emotional stress and alcohol intake. Over time, a sustained glutathione deficiency may contribute to chronic liver damage, lung disease, and nerve degeneration (e.g. Parkinson's). Glutathione can be regenerated back into its antioxidant form by the body by a molecule called NADPH.
If the body can make glutathione, why would someone even consider receiving a glutathione IV injection? To answer this question, consider that the ratio of usable to unusable glutathione (i.e. reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione) is a measure of oxidative stress in the body and the cells. If someone does a lot of activities which increase the external stress on the body, the amount of reduced, or active, glutathione might be used up quickly and not be replaced by the body fast enough. Low active glutathione levels may then result in cellular damage. Given all of the stressors we experience in modern life, some people might benefit from a glutathione injection to restore glutathione at the cellular level and help recalibrate their body.
Besides its antioxidant function, glutathione has a few other roles in the body. Glutathione can help manage a biological chemical known as nitric oxide which is important for blood vessel function and relaxation. Glutathione is involved with the synthesis and repair of our genetic material, DNA, and has wider roles in various organ systems in the body. Glutathione may also be involved with the metabolism of iron.
As a result, glutathione IV injections are thought to provide anti-aging benefits. Call us at (310) 606-3877 if you have questions about our premium glutathione injections or come in and treat your body to wellness!
