The first thing that comes to mind when we hear L-Glutathione is "whiter skin". And it's pretty popular here in the Philippines because a lot of people prefer to have whiter skin. I have to admit I am one of those people) This is ironic because a lot of foreigners who have white skin spend a lot on tanning products. Truly, we always want what we don't have haha!
Now I'm not saying that it's better to have white skin. I don't want to influence people of that. But it IS my personal preference to get a bit lighter. And after googling up on the tons of benefits that L-Glutathione actually has, it blew my mind and so I decided to give it a shot!
Thanks to a friend for introducing SNOW Caps Dietary Supplement! It's got Premium 500mg of L-Glutathione which they also refer to as the miracle enzyme. In each SNOW Cap capsule, you can be sure you are getting just the right amount of L-Glutathione (reduced) that our body needs. It also has 100mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid, and 100mg Non-Acidic Vitamin C.
L- Glutathione has lots of good benefits, not just for outer appearances. In fact, the whitening part is just a side-effect of using Glutathione. The real benefits are astounding! (Research based on this website)
It helps our immune system. When Glutathione levels are low, our immunity follows. So when we take a glutathione supplement, we also increase our immune system.
Acts as a powerful Antioxidant. Once Glutathione is used up, the recycling process begins. Lots of reduced glutathione in the body means lower cellular toxicity levels and again, stronger immunity.
It doesn't only detoxify the body. It detoxifies the brain as well. Taking Glutathione protects the brain from severe damage caused by heavy metal deposits. This means it helps shoo away root causes of many cognitive disorders plus it also improves cognitive function and memory throughout the aging process (My memory sucks. So this is good news for me!)
Glutathione is a potent chelator. What's a chelator? According to google,
Chelators are small molecules that bind very tightly to metal ions. I'm not sure what that exactly means but main point is that it helps in cellular response, transport and excretion of heavy toxic metals.
Good for the liver! When Glutathione levels are high, the workload put on the liver is lessened, giving it more time to repair itself. In turn, this helps lessen inflammation of the liver (which is the cause of liver cirrhosis and impaired liver function )
It is Anti-inflamatory. Inflammation is the leading cause of almost all diseases known to date. So needless to say, it is deadly. But to save you from all the medical terms, glutathion can definitely help relieve symptoms and pain for chronic inflammatory problems such as asthma, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis (But please don't take my word for it. Always consult with your doctor!)
Then of course, come the beautification part!
Glutathione is anti-aging. Glutathione helps eliminate and prevent formation of free radicals which is one of the leading causes of aging. Free radicals and oxidative damage damages our cells, making us feel tired and old and unhealthy.
Glutathione improves skin quality! With regular use, you will find that your skin will start giving off a healthy glow, reduces wrinkles and dry spots as well. Glutathione has the ability to reduce melanin production that's why people use it to whiten their skin.
And did you know that as we age, our glutathione levels also drop. Plus of course add everyday life stress, and the Earth's pollution in the equation. And sadly, with the types of food we eat as well. Because of this, we really have to take care of ourselves, and taking Glutathione supplements daily is an easy way to do just that.
SNOW Cap is available at Mercury Drugstores, Watsons and SouthStar Drugstores and costs 1,495.00 per box (contains 30 capsules ). Only one capsule is required per day, so a box is good for one month more or less. And yes, in case you're a bit skeptical, it is FDA approved (FR# 64597) ;-)
Now, in case you want to take another step in getting a healthy skin glow, you might want to try Snow Skin Whitening Soap.
It's different from other whitening soaps I've tried. First of all, the bar is clear. No color. Usually the other whitening soaps I've tried are orange.
It's also amazing how super clear it is! As clear as glass!
Okay so what else is special about this whitening soap? First of all, it's got 7 pant extracts from the Swiss Alps. These 7 plant extracts include:
- Mallow Extract - good for wrinkles and fine lines, and speeds up cell regeneration
- Peppermint Extract - tones skin, minimizes pores, reduces swelling, restores elasticity
- Primula Veris Extract- treats acne, pimples, and skin blemishes
- Alchemilla Vulgaris Extract - helps treat acne, rashes, cuts and wounds.
- Veronica Officinalis Extract - sometimes used to stop foot perspiration, treats wounds, and heals itching
- Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract - anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Gives the skin a calming and soothing effect
- Achillea Millefolium Extract - helps with dry and damaged skin, reduces flaking too.
It's also got ACE-B3 (an anti-oxidant complex) which basically is a good combination of Vitamin C to protect skin from photo-damage, Vitamin E for defense against free radicals, Aloe Vera Extract to protect and moisturize skin, and Niacinamide B3 (helps in skin clarifying and whitening)
Snow skin whitening soap :) Each time I use it, it gives my skin a super squeaky clean feeling. Literally. My skin literally felt squeaky in a good way because that way I know it's working :-) I'm happy with the effect on my skin :) Must be because of the 7 plant extracts it has! Anyway, on the blog soon! @snowwhitening @snowgluta #WhiteVanity
The first time I used it, I immediately felt the difference. The instructions said to leave it on your skin for 2-3 minutes (body and face). While waiting (and singing a song or 2 haha), I can already my skin squeak, especially when I start rinsing it. I like the feeling because I know it's doing its job. My skin just feels really clean!
And after a few days of using, I started to see and feel a certain glow when I look at the mirror. Goodbye oily face!
I'm happy I got to try this soap and I'm sure this won't be the last time I would be using it. It's a bit expensive compared to normal soaps (149php per bar) but I've always believed that you get what you pay for. I've had one too many instances that prove this mantra. And also, as always, it's always best to test if first to see if it works well with your own skin.
Mommies, keep in mind that this soap is not suitable for kids under 3 years of age. Not that you would. But at least I mentioned it for my peace of mind ;-)
Snow Skin Whitening Soap is available in Mercury Drug and South Star Drug at 149 Php per bar.
