TIPS ON USING GLUTATHIONE THE CORRECT WAY (This applies to capsules and powders)

1. Can be used EITHER in the morning or evening, take 2 glutathione pills together with 2 vitamin c 1000mg capsules. To speed up the skin-brightening process, one may take the recommended dosage morning AND evening. One can also use a glutathione powder in the morning with capsules during the day or night (preferably day)

2. The best time to use it would be 1 or 2 hours before or after breakfast as it will absorb better with metabolism. If you have purchased our famous probiotic capsule, take it at night. Follow the instructions on the bottle. 

3. Avoid these while using glutathione: coffee and paracetamol. Avoid tea, coffee, aspirin, disprin, and other medication but if you have to use any of these including caffeine just keep it 4 hours apart so that way it will still absorb. 

4. Try to eat healthily, this is about health as well and a good diet that contains glutathione: eg green apples, avocado, tomatoes, spinach, garlic, carrots, oranges, asparagus, grapefruit, parsley etc. is going to boost your results on a whole new level. 

5. Be consistent at taking your supplements, don't skip days, and expect to see good results. 

6. Use a sunscreen: preferably one from www.shoptheglowsa.com as every time you go into the sun, you will only be increasing melanin (the pigment that causes darkening, melasma, chloasma etc)

7. For pigmentation - Preferably take for 9 months as glutathione/NAC can take time to work because it’s from the inside and it can take time to reduce melanin. Since lightening of the pigmentation is permanent, you can stop after desired results, you won't go back to the original pigmentation , HOWEVER, for extremely porcelain skin and immense health benefits take for as long as you like. We suggest to also use glutathione skincare for faster and better results. We suggest you maintain the Glutathione level in your body by taking a maintenance dosage of one glutathione capsule per day with one vitamin c capsule after 9 months to maintain your glutathione level for health and beauty benefits.

If you want an overall brighter skin - glutathione is taken as as supplement every day for as long as you want brighter skin . Higher gluta levels daily = skin brightening effect

8. Drink a decent amount of water! It assists in detoxifying the body and vital organs. Additionally, you need to hydrate consistently. 

9. Precautions: do not take them during pregnancy and lactation.

10. Our glutathione powders can be purchased to boost the results of your capsules.  Mixed in water is best. If taking capsules in the morning, the powder will be used at night. And vice versa. Our glutathione powder also contains collagen for amazing anti-ageing benefits. Powder and capsules can also be used together but make sure one also takes vitamin c.

11. Side effects? There are no known side effects.All our products contain 100% natural ingredients. People have been taking Glutathione in various forms over the past 10 years and there have been no side effects recorded.


12. If overall skin brightening is the goal - the best way is to use a glutathione powder in the morning, capsules in the day or night AND skin brightening face and body products which can all be found on this site.

Additional info:

Drink sufficient water and try to stay away from fizzy, alcoholic, and sugary drinks

Keep your diet clean

Wash your face with warm water and a good cleanser every morning and evening

Wash off all make-up before going to bed


What happens if I stop taking glutathione after 9 months?

All results achieved while on the product are permanent (for pigmentation) , while for skin brightening as  a whole, supplements and skincare would be needed monthly to maintain.

Blemishes, marks, pigmentation, and scars will remain gone and your skin will remain clear.

With regards to skin lightening – you will remain the shade you have achieved on the product, however, you are not immune to getting sunburnt and can go shades darker if you spend time in the sun without necessary precautions i.e. sunblock and a hat. One has to take a maintenance dosage to maintain their shade.

We recommend that if you are planning a holiday or a lot of time in the sun you take your Glutathione product with you to ensure adequate maintenance in keeping you in the shade you have become - however, sun exposure means that the skin will produce more melanin/colour.

We have received reviews and testimonials from clients that they have seen results in their pigmentation, blemishes and marks clearing as soon as 3 – 4 weeks into using the products. Use a glutathione face cream to speed up these results. 

Dark marks: Use supplements and skincare, one can stop after it goes away

Dark patches or hormonal pigmentation: Needs consistent treatment to stay lightened - use supplements and skincare daily

2. Metabolism

Glutathione is absorbed uniquely by each individual as a result of their metabolism. Different metabolic rates can result in faster or slower results.

3. Absorption rate

Glutathione needs to be absorbed into your system in order to boost your levels and enhance results. We have assisted with this process by giving you the option of purchasing our Vitamin C capsules which enhance Glutathione absorption and probiotics which can be purchased online.
