Update ; I’m taking this again
I took 1 week break from taking any supplements to clear my body and do a restart in preparation for more beauty supplements to try! One of the most requested glutathione brand that readers ask for is *drumroll*

Ishigaki Premium Glutathione!They told me that this is one of their best sellers because of two reasons: 1 it’s cheap 2 it’s effective, and works better than some of the more expensive brands. In short, Ishigaki sells like pancakes! IF… this works for me, this might replace the throne of SnowCaps or Vitapack Megawhite as my favorite. Syempre, if you’re going to take glutathione in the long run we should also think cost effectively.
What? Ishigaki Premium Glutathione
How much? 850php/bottle of 30 capsules
WHERE TO BUY? Lazada Philippines
This is the packaging for Ishigaki Premium (old)
This is the packaging for Ishigaki Premium (new)
The one with red label is also authentic, they updated the label so it’s not confused with the other ishigaki, the ishigaki advanced. Twist to open the sealed cap. It’s twist to open!
I honestly think the packaging looks very cheap, pero it’s secured nonetheless because the cap is sealed. Aesthetic wise, the bottle is not looking very classy at all. Something that a 10 year old or younger could design. (ay grabe naman ako maka-comment sa bote!) It’s very light and small.
This is not L-Glutathione. It’s a glutathione blend. We should know the difference. This is not pure glutathione BUT components of glutathione in separate form. What are they?
- L-Glutamic Acid 200mg
- L-Cysteine 200mg
- Glycine 200mg
It also has other ingredients such as
- NAC – N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine – This is one of the effective ingredient in my other favorite Vitapack and also the active ingredient of KB Gluta (which is not gluta, it’s an NAC supplement) This is supposed to naturally enhance our body’s glutathione production
It says it’s made in USA but under Japan License.

update 02/07/2015: fresher and newer stocks of ishigaki advanced and ishigaki premium will NOT have the rotten egg smell. You can tell you have an authentic ishigaki if you open the capsule, taste the powder and it will taste sour. It has clear capsules that has white powder in it. I’m happy it does not have ALA or Alpha Lipoic Acid because this is the ingredient that cause many people who take other glutathione supplements acid reflux, pimples, and heart burn. Ouch.
I’m actually looking forward to taking this. I have a good feeling about Ishigaki Premium Glutathione and I can’t wait to share with you all the details in the second part of my review coming soon in 30 days once I finish and empty the bottle.
