The questioning looks I get from my friends when I start talking about Glutathione is why I even bother taking it, since I'm already fair to begin with. Let me tell you, there is more than meets the eye.
Glutathione is very common here in the Philippines. We can find it in all forms - those who are more conservative would opt for topical application via soaps and lotions, but admittedly the faster way to skin whitening is glutathione entering the body via ingestion or IV. So many rumors surround it though about its effects on one's body. Many are hesitant to take it for fear of experiencing negative effects such as gastrointestinal pain and skin allergies, but I can share with you a brand that I trust since 2013 - SnowCaps! (I've reviewed it way back during 2013, which you may read here.)
I won't try anything that would be a potential health risk, so before trying it out, I did heavy research and found it to be extremely interesting. Glutathione nourishes the liver, and the only side effect it's supposed to give is its skin whitening effect. (That's like a win-win situation.)
In an effort to inform the Filipinos on what we really need to know about glutathione, VIDA NutriSciences teamed up with Kohjin Life Sciences to let us in on the undiscovered health benefits of glutathione earlier today at a press conference held at Hotel Jen. (Kohjin is the Japan-based glutathione supplier of VIDA, and is FDA accredited.)
Kohjin Life Sciences members Mr. Yusuke Sauchi, Ms. Hitomi Ito, and Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine Associate Professor Dr. Wataru Aoi gave us interesting insights about its importance, its depleting level in our bodies as we age, and its hidden benefits.
Glutathione is naturally present in our body, but external factors such as stress, pollution, and vices deplete it, hence the need to supplement.
Also, another little known use for glutathione that I've learned today was that some of the Japanese take it before a drinking session, and it has showed a significant decrease in hangover symptoms.
Benefits of Glutathione:
- Lightens the skin
- Keeps a flawless complexion
- Maintains a healthy liver
- Detoxifies our liver and body of harmful toxins and heavy metals from what we consume
- Boosts immunity versus deadly diseases (AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and cardiac arrest)
- Helps keep our physique in shape
- Improves male fertility by providing the needed nutrients for the sperm
Even Alden Richards is a fan!
Filipinos can now be more confident to make informed choices as VIDA and Kohjin collaborates to further common knowledge, break myths, and raise awareness about glutathione.
I'm taking glutathione again not merely for skin whitening, but for overall health and wellness. I've made a comprehensive review before, so I'm expecting the same level of results. But to help you spot an original SnowCaps product, you may refer to the photos below. Make sure to purchase from authorized sellers only.
Expected time for results to show would be 6 to 8 weeks, but based on my experience before, effects were noticed by other people in as early as 2 weeks.
