To enhance glutathione support in your body, hydration is important. Talk to your health professional about taking one serving of Optimal Electrolyte daily mixed in a large glass of filtered water and sip over a period of 20-30 minutes (recommended by Dr Lynch!).
If oxidative stress is a significant issue for you, consider using PQQ Lozenge once daily for a week or more prior to using Optimal Glutathione Plus. The added PQQ acts as an antioxidant thereby helping protect the glutathione from further oxidation and damage.*
Lithium Orotate may help support healthy levels of neurotransmitters if Optimal Glutathione Plus is increasing symptoms of anxiety or irritability.*
It’s best to start with one capsule before bed this way if any side effects occur, you are sleeping and do not experience them. However, if side effects are increased anxiety, irritability and insomnia, then taking before bed is not recommended.
The reason for these side effects is glutathione, when in higher amounts, may increase glutamate in the brain. This is why it’s best to use Optimal Glutathione Plus at just one capsule daily and, if needing more, increase as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. It is suggested to take divided doses, such as every few hours vs taking all capsules at once. According to Dr Lynch, this way glutathione levels are maintained versus "spiking".*
