Glutathione: A Benefit of Skin Whitening

If you’re like most people you’ve never heard of Glutathione however, Glutathione is actually fairly popular in Asian countries like Japan and China, particularly with women.

Glutathione is typically used for skin whitening, and as a product, that’s where it really shines but, it can be very helpful with a number of other skin issues as well.

If you’re considering using skin whitening products but you’re afraid of potential side effects, you should give Glutathione some consideration. It’s effective when it comes to whitening the skin quickly, and it’s widely regarded as a safe way to whiten the skin.

What Is Glutathione?

Glutathione is an antioxidant made from glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. While Glutathione is prepared like any cosmetic or vitamin product – in a safe, sterile laboratory setting – it is made of all-natural amino acids that occur in nature and are beneficial to our bodies.

In fact, Glutathione can be found in many healthy foods that people eat on a regular basis, some of which are actually considered among the healthiest foods in the world.

Walnuts, avocados, tomatoes and oranges can all help to keep Glutathione levels high in the bloodstream, though they won’t actually work to whiten your skin and, contribute to healthy skin – especially walnuts and avocados, which are also high in essential fatty acids.


Glutathione is commonly taken in pill form, and Glutathione pills are hugely successful in Japan, particularly for women that just want to have lighter skin than they were born with without the side effects that some topical treatments have.

It can also be taken via intravenous injection, though you’ll need to visit your dermatologist to have this procedure done. While many dermatologists recommend Glutathione injections because they get 100-percent of the dose into your bloodstream, regular injections can be expensive.

In many cases, people that get Glutathione injections will need to make about 15 trips to the dermatologist to get injections. While it might be more work to go to the dermatologist’s office on a regular basis, Glutathione injections are highly effective.

How Does Glutathione Work?

Glutathione works in a very simple way, yet other skin whitening products can’t compete with the all-natural amino acid compound. Simply put, Glutathione works to clear the body of free radicals and toxins that can lead to serious skin problems like hyperpigmentation and melasma, as well as more common ones like sun spots.

Do I Have to Have Bad Skin?


One common misconception about skin whitening – at least in the United States — is that you have to have bad skin to use them. However, Glutathione can be extremely beneficial for people that would just prefer a slightly lighter complexion. In fact, many women that have flawless skin use Glutathione on a regular basis to help maintain their excellent complexion.

Glutathione can also give people with minor skin imperfections an overall better look by reducing the appearance of red spots and any rough patches that may exist. Many women use Glutathione exclusively to get smoother, more touchable skin.

Additional Benefits of Glutathione

While Glutathione is most commonly used by women looking to whiten their skin, it may have a beneficial effect for women that have cystic acne, acne-prone skin or even the occasional breakout.

Glutathione won’t help hormone-related acne in most cases since it doesn’t affect hormone levels in the body like birth control pills or injections, which are commonly prescribed for women with hormonal acne.

Glutathione isn’t known for its health benefits, but it is an all-natural chain of amino acids that your body needs. While more research needs to be done, there is some evidence that taking Glutathione could actually help to improve a weak immune system or make a healthy immune system even stronger.

    Be a vegetarian and it will proof that Glutathione works as a whitener.Not over night,but taking Glutathione in high amounts 1500 mg per day it will surely work.Don’t eat meat,less milk prodcts(yoghurt is ok),don’t smoke,And lots of broccoli and tomatoes.

  • Holy

    How many milligrams should drink per day ? My pill said it has 200000mg and take 2 times per day .. when will it show the result ??

    • Rich

      Are you sure about 20.000 mg coz thats way too much.What product do you use if i may ask?

      • Holy

        My product names Gluta 200000 .. Does glutathione really can make skin become white ??? I have take 4 months but result is 25/100 ????

        • Melisa

          hi mayb the gluta that you take is not hydrolized or mayb just fake one. I know that type of gluta ur talking about.yes ive tried it before n doesnt bring any good

        • MK

          200000 mg is 200 grams. Does your pill weigh 0.2 kg?

          • nuurul

            the product name gluta 200000.not its mass.please understand the statement

    • Candy Nurse

      Hi Holy, you have to use Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) powder form with Glutathione for it to whiten your skin. If you use Glutathione by itself it will only work as an Antioxidant; even if the pills you’re taking already has Vitamin C in it. Plus the dose you are taking is way to high for your body. Example of how to use it:

      -Convert your weight to kilograms then multiply it by 30 then double the Vitamin C

      110lbs = 50kg
      50kg x 30 = 1,500mg (of Glutathione daily)
      1,500 x 2 = 3,000 (of Vitamin C daily)

      You should see results in 4-7 weeks and you have to take it forever because nothing is permanent…sorry :(

      When you achieve your goal cut the dose to half to maintain results.

      ps. The maximum about of Vitamin C your body can take daily is 10,000mg a day. So as long as you’re under that number you will be fine :)

      • Maha Rani Beita

        hi Guest, so you mean that amount of vit c is should twice of glutathione? , then, hiw come 30? i dont understand. and, i take gluta 200k too. i think, is it possible i take 0,2kg of glutathione,while my pill not too large. is that a stupidity?

    Where can I get MIso Soup in New Delhi, India? In India I get my glutathione injections and glutathione pills from Dr Niketa’s Skin Clinic. she said Miso soup is not available here :-/

    • bano

      hi beautiful

      Was your glutathione treatment successful. I am also planning to undergo glutathione therapy at Dr.Niketas clinic.??

      • iambeautiful

        Hi Bano, it was super. I had the injection treatment for 3 months. Now I’m maintaining with occasional injections and skin products. I’m really happy with the results. But Dr Niketa is moving her clinic to Mumbai now. She has a larger fan following there ^~^. She also has a new blog
        Hope this helps..

        • diya

          how much it cost you on average

          • iambeautiful

            My dermatologist charges depending on the dose or quantity of glutathione injected. Right now its 25k per month. The point is that her treatment WORKS. I have friends who got cheaper deals but never got results :-p

          • Mimi

            did you go for 4 months treatment?? after how many injections did you notice the noticeable change in skin colour?
            please tell me where to get injections in delhi

          • iambeautiful

            I got visible results only from one dermatologist. Color change i noticed after about 6 shots. Her contact details I have already shared several times in other replies. She’s no longer practicing in Delhi now. I get my shots when I visit her in Mumbai, Andheri Lokhandwala. Rest of the doctors and dermatologists that I visited almost seemed like they had no real clue of what they were doing or what results to expect.

          • diya

            i got 12 glutathione shots from her but i didnt really see much change in my color :(
            how many shots u got? im dark i realy wanna get fair!

          • iambeautiful

            Really? From Dr Niketa Sonavane? Did you discuss this with her as to why it might have happened? I remember she did tell me at the beginning of my treatment that 12 sessions is the minimum I have to do to start seeing color change. I was lucky i started lightening well before that ^-^. I think you should go and talk to her for sure. I always discuss every doubt with her. She’s an ocean of patience I think, after how much I bug her :-P

          • Diya

            Hello please tell me if its safe to take gluta injections
            Someone told me that long term use of gluta leads to health problems sooner or later after some years i wanna try it but I’m scared now please ask your doctor if its safe

          • Yao

            did you take 5000mg/injection? Can i take higher dosages?

          • Dim

            is it possible to get white skin with injections???? dark person can become white too?????

          • iambeautiful

            I’m not sure how much lighter you can push it. My doc recommends going to the color you were born with. Lighter than that is difficult to maintain. But it is possible to go lighter I think coz she never said it’s not possible! BTW why would anyone want to be WHITE, I personally think it’s ghostly rather that pretty :-/

        • hunny

          how much it cost on average

          • iambeautiful

            I initially paid 40k for 1st month, 30k for 2nd, 3rd, 4th month each. Right now my dermatologist Dr Niketa has opened a new clinic in Mumbai. She has an inaugral offer of 25k per month ^-^

            You can follow her on her google page for the offer

        • Mimi

          Hi iambeautiful, I want to get gluta injections too please tell me how many lighter shades your skin became after the injections? how was your skin before the gluta treatment?

          • iambeautiful

            Hi Mimi, my skin was quiet okay in terms of texture and colour. I had taken glutathione capsules initially which made my skin softer and smoother but no change in colour. When I started the injections initially for about a month the change was slow, but second month onwards it improved really fast. I won’t count in shades but everyone notices the dramatic difference in my skin colour now.

    Glutathione can certainly improve the look of your skin and help reduce age spots as well as lighten your complexion. However most Glutathione supplements are broken down in the stomach before they can be absorbed by the body. Use Acetyl Glutathione in order to overcome this problem and achieve maximum absorption. One of the best supplements for overall health and skin quality is found here

  • SW

    Raising GSH levels through direct supplementation of glutathione is difficult. Research suggests that glutathione taken orally is not well absorbed across the gastrointestinal tract. In a study of acute oral administration of a very large dose (3 grams) of oral glutathione, Witschi and coworkers found “it is not possible to increase circulating glutathione to a clinically beneficial extent by the oral administration of a single dose of 3 g of glutathione.”[27][28] However, it is possible to increase and maintain appropriate glutathione levels by increasing the daily consumption of cysteine-rich foods and/or supplements.[29]

      Cheap gluta has poor quality of salt. it doesn’t work. Its like buying 9 carat gold instead of 24 carat gold. Bad investment :-//

    • SN

      Mr/Ms. Masoom Sa, you better have lots of Amla, lemon water n tomatoes (Not too much – Take just enough) – yessss, they are not only cheap, but Natural too.

      No health issues or after effects to think about, and no worry of going to the Dr.or getting injected for immediate results. Ok. Only thing is, its a time taking process.

      (Actually the above product is for people having problem with their skin, and color. Who might have spoiled it (Health of skin n Body) by eating unhealthy stuff, and might have effected due to pollution, health issues, etc. I feel, at first place, one needs to start eating healthy and normal food stuff, and do some exercise to keep the health in proper condition. Rest, dont worry about it… – This will take long time but its natural and your body will take care of your skin and health as-well.)

      I agree that these external products and supplements help regain health (who have diesease or are suffering from some health issues should use medications or suppliments to combat and bring back the health) but long term use is always harmful and later, becomes permanent health issue where you may need to take external medication/supplements for ever because, later the body (liver)stops producing the Glutatheion n other fluides because you are supplying the body with supplements externally… Well, there’s more to all this but I wont be able to waste my time here. Anyway, Hope you people get good info.soon.

      THank You!

    I honestly think glutathione treatment is best done under dermatologist care. Would never buy online. If I m putting something in my body especially injections, I want to be 100% sure that it’s not some poison or worse still some addictive drugs and shit. Who’s going to guarantee what’s in these things that online sellers are selling :-O
    Has anyone had any good glutathione experience with a dermatologist, doctor or clinic in Bankok, Delhi or Mumbai? I originally had my dermatologist in Singapore. But I m not travelling there anymore.

    Lypo-Spheric GSH encapsulates the GSH in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect it from being destroyed by digestive juices. Within minutes of taking Lypo-Spheric GSH, the tiny liposomes filled with GSH are transported directly into the bloodstream, and into the cells. This makes Lypo-Spheric GSH one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to boost your levels of this essential antioxidant.
