About 4 weeks ago I started oral glutathione capsules. 500 mg. I started the first week at 500 mg per day and added 500 mg each week. I'm now taking 4 capsules a day, which I just started to do yesterday.

The first couple weeks I didn't notice much difference but the last week I've really developed more energy and my exercise tolerance has improved. This is actually about the 4th or 5th day in a row where I have had a burst of energy in the afternoon. I believe my mucus is also getting thinner and clearer.

A couple other things I need to add. I started taking it with vitamin c since some studies say it is absorbed better with ascorbic acid. The vit. c was exasperating my hearburn issues so last week I stopped taking it with vit. c. That's also about when I started feeling better.

A couple other things I think have also made a difference. About two weeks ago I started taking probiotics again. I started taking high doses but reduced it because I was having stomache cramps. Now I'm taking one-three capsules a day.

I've also been doing the hypertonic saline through the eflow for about a month. I like it much better through this new nebuliser. It seems to be much more effective.

Thanks for that! These are all things I am planning on talking to my drs about next week at my appointment. Interesting- I just started the probiotics, and had an unusual tummy ache this morning (like I get when I take a new med) so perhaps that explained that, and I will take it at a different time of day...

I'm so glad you feel like the glutathione is helping. I had tried it awhile ago, but didn't continue because it was expensive and I wasn't sure if it was helping or not. I'm thinking about starting it again. Are you using Theranaturals GSH caps or liposomal GSH?

just a note that I have been taking probiotics for years and I noticed a HUGE difference in quality and the poorer quality ones gave me serious digestive issues. I have found the ones that are sold at health food store and kept in the refrigerator by them and me and have a best used by date do better by me, the cheaper ones at a grocery store or whatever cause me rpoblems.

I'm starting out with the Culturelle (so I start with just one type of culture) and then work my way up to the multi's. It has helped <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> .

I've been noticing and definitely noticed today that I'm not coughing up as much sputum and what I coughed up was almost white. Yeah! That does happen occasionally for me anyway, but I've noticed it seems to be improving each day.

One other thing, taking the Glut. before bed had made it more difficult to sleep. Like I said it gives me more energy, which I don't need at that time of day. Not really a bad trade off though.
