When we hear the word “glutathione,” we immediately associate it with whitening, and whitening only. But as I found out this week, there is so much more to gluta than that! I paid Manny and Pie Calayan a visit at their Makati clinic for an innovative skincare and wellness treatment called the Gluta Drip. Yes, a drip, as in intravenous drip.
According to the clinic, glutathione is a master antioxidant that fights free radicals, regenerates vitamins C and E, and strengthens the immune system. It also supports the functions of the liver, kidneys, GI tract, and intestines. The whitening of the skin, apparently, is just a side effect!
Calayan’s Gluta Drip treatment is an infusion of glutathione, collagen, and vitamin C—all good for the body. I was able to experience the ultra-fast version of a drip, called a “push,” in which the treatment is administered via a single injection. Regular “drips” usually take 45 minutes to an hour. In contrast, my “push” took only a few seconds—it was literally ONE shot and I was done! This is perfect for girls on the go and people who don’t really have a lot of time to sit down for hours and hours of treatment in the middle of the week.

(Now, an important note: pain tolerance may vary from person to person. I am personally deathly afraid of needles, but if you aren’t, this should be a walk in the park.)
The Gluta Drip treatment can be taken once every few weeks. As mentioned, the lightening of the skin is one of the side effects of detoxification. I’m told this will be noticeable after a couple of sessions! As strange as it is, I’d recommend this treatment, precisely because it removes toxins from the body. We’re all exposed to free radicals on a daily basis, and if this shot can boost your immune system and make you glow, it’s a win-win situation!
