Glutathione


Murray Avenue Apothecary is the only compounding pharmacy to provide Palmitated Topical Glutathione and Acetyl-Glutathione - the ONLY absorbable form of oral Glutathione.

Glutathione (pronounced “gloota-thigh-own”) is the body’s essential health AID - Antioxidant, Immune Booster and Detoxifier. In fact, your life depends on glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses, and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins.

From Our Clients…

Several years ago, I developed a nasty breakout on my right buttocks. The dermatologist diagnosed this as a herpes breakout, although the biopsy was inconclusive. (The lesion measured approximately 2x3 inches). After speaking with Susan, she recommended applying Glutathione Cream. After several applications, the lesion decreased in size in just a few days. I applied the Glutathione Cream as directed every day, even when no lesion was there. I continued to get the breakouts off and on for about a year. Each time, the breakout was smaller and healed more quickly. When I didn't have a breakout for six months, I stopped the cream application. It's now been about two years with no reoccurrence. I owe this all to Susan Merenstein at the Murray Avenue Apothecary and her great advice.

It's also great for pets!
Acetyl-Glutathione for pets: 2 mg per pound in capsules or flavored liquid.

This is a testimonial about a 12-year-old large 90 lb, dog with bad arthritis to the degree she has episodes where she can not stand or walk. I went to Murray Avenue Apothecary with the hopes of finding a solution and sure enough they had one. This was in June of 2014. They recommended Acetyl-Glutathione. She had been limping from an injury due to the arthritis when she slipped down the steps. Within 2 weeks of taking Glutathione she stopped limping. It is now December 2014 and she is visibly stronger and in much less pain. I was told by the Apothecary Pharmacist that she will most likely improve even more and keep getting stronger the longer she takes it. This is a report of the improvement in 6 months so far.

This [Glutathione/ Magnesium topical] compound is totally amazing! I rub a small amount (dime sized) onto either leg before I go to bed and those horribly painful leg cramps are completely gone.

The "Best" Form of Glutathione

Glutathione by itself is not bioavailable when taken orally and not appreciably absorbed in human or animal models. In order to have sufficient bioavailablity in an oral product, glutathione must be modified to Acetyl-glutathione. Acetylation is the way all proteins, amino acids and peptides are transported by the body. Acetyl-glutathione is a food substance recognized as a Dietary Supplement and is generally regarded as safe, when used as directed.
