inhalation evaluation and treatment
Oxidative stress is a major cause of cell damage and lung inflammation. Glutathione is an antioxidant. Glutathione (GSH) inhaled can be a vital intra- and extra-cellular protection against oxidative stress, which plays a major role in the control of pro-inflammatory processes in the lungs. Alterations in lung's Glutathione metabolism are widely recognized as a central feature of many chronic inflammatory lung diseases. Glutathione is a mucolytic that breaks down build up of thick mucus. Glutathione inhalation therapy improves cough and can improve acute and chronic lung disease to include emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. Patients with a history of tobacco use and active smokers can reduce the damages associated with smoking and improve symptoms of smoker’s lung.
