Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your oral glutathione:
Take your oral glutathione on an empty stomach to ensure better absorption into your bloodstream.
The recommended dose for skin lightening is between 1,000 to 2,000 mg of glutathione daily, divided into two doses. But that’s for glutathione pills, which are not as absorbable as liposomal glutathione. If you’re taking Seeking Health’s liposomal glutathione, you might want to double the daily dose. Start with that for a few months and see how you feel and how your body is reacting before you up the dosage.
The best way to increase the effectiveness of oral glutathione is to combine it with Vitamin C and anthocyanins, which both have the ability to regenerate glutathione from oxidation. Around 500 to 1,000mg of Vitamin C should be taken daily along with a supplement high in anthocyanins like bilberry or elderberry extract.
It can take around 3 to 4 months to start seeing skin lightening results from glutathione. Lighter-skinned people will see results the fastest – within 3 months – but it can take as long as 6 to 12 months for darker skin.
