Hello dear, you must be knowing glutathione is an anti oxidant. Just like vitamin A. I am sure you wont give vitamin A injection to anyone without a specific cause :-)
so please dont go for this injection too. It has hepatotoxic potency.
I would suggest you natural sources of glutathione.
Apple and banana contain lots of it.
Also any vegetable that you eat raw like carrot is rich. So take these.
Thank you
