Tis the season-like clockwork, we can anticipate colds and nasty viruses making their dreadful appearances in the workplace, schools and even knocking on our door!

Did you know the National Centers for Health Research and CDC report: • The flu is a virus that affects 5-20% of the population every year. • Approximately 200,000 people in the U.S. are hospitalized with seasonal flu every year. • In a given week during flu season, 2% to 5% of all visits to the doctor’s office were for flu-like illness. • The effectiveness of flu shots varies each year and this past year, the seasonal vaccine was about 50% effective against specific flu virus strains. • The flu causes U.S. employees to miss approximately 17 million workdays due to flu, at an estimated $7 billion a year in sick days and lost productivity.

In addition to the flu virus, there are a multitude of other viruses that cause upper respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses this time of year.

Dr. Puc wants to help YOU stay healthy this season and invites you to experience Glutathione, an important nutrient for detoxification and immune support.

What is Glutathione? • Glutathione is a substance found in every cell of the body, where it acts as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals. • There are three major roles of glutathione in the body: Antioxidant, Immune booster, and Detoxifier. Even cells in the healthiest individuals constantly need to replenish their glutathione supply.

A brief Science lesson: • Antioxidants participate directly in the destruction of reactive oxygen compounds called free radicals. These by-products of a cell’s normal function cannot be avoided. Free radicals have been linked to muscle fatigue during exercise and aging. • For this reason, the body is equipped with a variety of antioxidants. Vitamin C and E are natural antioxidants but do not occur naturally in the body. These and other antioxidants depend on Glutathione to function properly….so that is why Glutathione is known as the Master Antioxidant.

Food for the Immune System: • Glutathione helps build your immune system’s resistance and improves your chances of staying healthy. • Lymphocytes are cells of your immune system. Glutathione is essential for lymphocytes to increase in number, produce antibodies and function appropriately.

A Natural Detoxifier: • Our food and water sources are becoming increasingly contaminated with chemicals, including the air we breathe. Supplemental detoxifiers can help counter the effects of toxin exposure. • By physically binding to toxic compounds in cells, glutathione helps make them soluble and harmless. The body can eliminate these disarmed toxins in the bile and urine.

Autumn is a time of transition and optimal time for detox. Fall into wellness this season with a detox that also supports your immunity!

Dr. Puc is offering a Fall into Health special: • Established patients: Contact the office to schedule and receive $10 off the cost of a glutathione 2-gram injection when you mention this post. • New Patients: Call the office to see if this is a good option for you and receive $10 off your initial thirty-minute IV consult with Dr. Puc, and an additional $10 off your 2-gram glutathione injection.
