While vitamins C and E are the most well-known antioxidant supplements, because they neutralize free radicals, glutathione has the added benefit of being a powerful antioxidant because glutathione exists within the cell. Glutathione is found in every type of cell, including cells in the immune system. Glutathione helps to fight against disease, which is why proponents of the supplement suggest it works against cancer and other diseases.

Studies haven’t shown any side effects when supplementing with Glutathione.

What causes of Vitamin B12 deficiency?

Common causes include poor absorption from the stomach or intestines, decreased intake, and increased requirements.[1] Decreased absorption may be due to pernicious anemia, surgical removal of the stomach, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, intestinal parasites, certain medications, and some genetic disorders.

Who gets B12 deficiency?

Although B12 deficiency is more common in vegans, B12 deficiency can occur even in people who consume meat, poultry, and fish. Children are at a higher risk for B12 deficiency due to inadequate dietary intake, as they have fewer vitamin stores and a relatively larger vitamin need per calorie of food intake.

Can you get B12 deficiency due to absorption issues in the stomach?

Yes. In some people, the stomach may not produce what is called intrinsic factor which is required for absorption of vitamin B12. In others, there are issues with absorption.

Can B12 be taken orally?

Yes. However, in many people, taking B12 orally may not be enough due either to lack of intrinsic factor as noted above or due to malabsorption issues.

How does B12 shot help better than taking pills?

Since B12 shots bypass the stomach and is given directly, we can avoid the absorption issues altogether.
