Started glutathione two days ago. I started coughing the first morning after the night i took it. Very strange. On top of it all , this is the second day and I feel like I have the flu. I just recovered from the flu about two weeks ago. Very strange
Ronen Brown L.A. on Feb, 12, 2014:
Your description is similar to detox symptoms which mean you are increasing your intracellular glutathione levels. A good thing to do :)
If you want to find out the best way to increase the natural production of glutathione contact me.

The flu symptoms are a common side effect of introducing glutathione back into the system. It's not the glutathione that's making you sicker, it's all the toxins in your body being flushed out all at once. Once they're all gone, you're body will be cleaner and healthier than it was before.
