Glutathione FAQ – 22 Frequently Asked Questions. Answers! (JANUARY 2019 UPDATE)

I’ve been receiving a lot of e-mails and messages from my you, my kikay blog readers and it definitely deserves a response! 🙂 As much as I would like to answer each question individually I can’t. If only I had multiple selves! Haha! So I’m gathering all your queries and will post them here so everyone can benefit! Sounds great?

1. What is the best glutathione brand?

This is a tough one to answer. Mainly because we are individuals with different needs and body system. Like my disclaimer says (see right sidebar) what works for me may not work for you. I have tried many, many, many glutathione and that’s the reason I post individual glutathione reviews for each brand on how it worked for me on the duration that I was taking them.

2. When is the best time to take glutathione?

Based on my personal experience, it is best to take glutathione on different times than taking all capsules at once. Why? You should allow your body to absorb what it can. Depending on your glutathione brand, I suggest evenly distributing intake. For example the dosage is 2 capsules a day; take one in the morning, and one before going to bed.

3. What’s the best glutathione for my skin type and needs?

The effects of glutathione truly depends on each individual’s body type, metabolism, and skin condition. I have reviewed most of the ingredients used in glutathione supplements and came up with an article specifically for this concern. You can read more about it here (Glutathione Recommendation)

4. When is the best time to take glutathione?

Based on my personal experience, it is best to take glutathione on different times than taking all capsules at once. Why? You should allow your body to absorb what it can. Depending on your glutathione brand, I suggest evenly distributing intake. For example the dosage is 2 capsules a day; take one in the morning, and one before going to bed.

5.  How many capsules should I take daily?

Follow the recommended dosage of your brand. For japanese tablets, just take 3 pills a day.

6. Will SMOKING or COFFEE affect my whitening goals?

YES. Because glutathione is an anti-oxidant. Smoking produces toxins in our body. Caffeine, while healthy when consumed moderately neutralizes the whitening effect so it becomes solely as an anti-oxidant only

7. Should I take glutathione pills with meal or without?

If your glutathione does NOT have ALA, you can take it without meals but if it does, take it with meals because ALA is an acid and it will cause more harm if you take it on an empty stomach.

8. How will I take glutathione with vitamin C?

Just take it together with your glutathione

 9. What vitamin C is best to take for skin whitening?

The non-acidic kind because you will have to take a lot of vitamin C. Here are some Vitamin C I recommend and tried.

10. When will I see the results of taking glutathione?

You can see effects within 3-6 weeks. It’s not the WHITE white you want but you will see your skin start to look fairer.

This will depend on your current skin tone.

11. Will I gain weight with glutathione?

No. But some report weight gain because of increased appetite. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant so if we become healthier our appetite increases as well.

12. Will I get back to my dark skin color when I stop taking glutathione?

No. That is if you use SPF to prevent UV rays.

13. How much time should I invest in skin whitening?

Dark Skin – 2-3 years

Medium Dark – 1-2 years

Light Skin – 6 months – 1 year

Fair Skin – 1 – 3 months

14. Have you tried IV Glutathione?

No. Some say it is more effective since it’s direct but I am not fond of putting needles in my veins. I am afraid of the possible side effects from IV Glutathione.

15. What is the best glutathione for men?

ALL GLUTATHIONE ARE THE SAME REGARDLESS OF GENDER.

16. Will taking Glutathione whiten my private areas like armpit, groin etc?

24955576_2036222016623666_1972019337600960641_o

So I received this question recently, and obviously it all depends on your perspective if he’s serious in this or not. Being a professional, I’ll answer anyway. If the color of your private part is already darker than the rest of your skin. Expect that when the rest of your skin color lightens, it will too but still remain shades darker. It will not “even out” your skin tone.

I suggest you go to a reputable dermatologist to fix your skin pigmentation issue.

17. What is the best glutathione for teens?

Please consult a doctor and your parent first BUT if you’re already 18, since you’re a teen and on a budget I recommend Ishigaki Premium

18. Is glutathione safe for pregnant women?

Consult your OB-Gyne! 🙂

19. Can I take glutathione pills with other medicine?

If you’ll just take it with multivitamins, vitamin c, etc. Yes it’s perfectly fine but if you are under serious medication please consult your doctor first.

20. How will I maintain my fair skin?

SUNBLOCK. I listed quite a number of good sunblocks.

21. Can Glutathione cause acne?

Glutathione does not cause the acne breakouts but it does not prevent/cure it either. ALA, a common ingredient combined with glutathione can cause breakouts.

22. Can I take Glutathione while on Birth Control Pills?

YES. Glutathione is just another supplement and is not a form of medication so it won’t contraindicate your birth control.

If you have any more questions with skin whitening supplements, glutathione, and the likes. Feel free to leave your questions in the comment box below and we’ll add these in this page.

Love lots! <3 XOXO

    I used to take glutathiones before (6 years ago i think) but I stopped already since whenever my body was starting to get immuned to the pills, its effectiveness is not great anymore. I don't take vitamins in general I just don't like the idea that my liver has to breakdown all of these foreign objects.

    I tried taking gluta way back 2007 for a month. Yes, only for a month and I have fair skin so I couldn't tell if it was effective or not. I decided to discontinue taking it for practical reasons.:)

    I've read somewhere that you shouldn't drink glutathione together with other supplements. You should leave a time spacing for the gluta alone then the vitamins. It kinda affects the efficacy of the product.

    What gluta product was the most effective and best for you girl?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 20, 2014 at 6:54 am

    I've read that glutathione doesn't directly whiten skin. It's just the side effect. What it actually does is cleanse our kidneys of toxins. Pretty cool, right? 😀

    Hi Kat! I'm very new with this gluta thing (i just started today) and i was wondering if its true what other articles online are saying that if you take glutathione orally its just the same as throwing money cause our stomach cant absorb it or something? They said only IV is the effective one? Also, i have super ugly bacne that i'm battling for more than a decade now. Which brand do you recommend? Right now, i'm using metathione but the price is just too much.

    I hope you can get back to me:)
    Thank you so much!

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva September 29, 2014 at 12:58 am

    Actually for BACNE meron spray si celeteque.. nako, effective naman ang Oral no, I'm a testament to prove it. I never used IV.
    Sinasabi lang ng mga nag IIV yun para syempre, business.

    Mahal ang MET try Snowcaps or vitapack

    You can use any glutathione faith, but if you dont want to be too white don't take it for a long time.
