Product Review: Ishigaki Premium Plus Glutathione

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

     Hi dearies! This is a very long overdue review. I received 2 bottles of Ishigaki Premium Plus Glutathione from Cheska's Online Store last May. I'm already familiar with the brand even before I started blogging. I haven't tried it because I was pregnant that time and I don't care about whitening supplements. If my memory serves me right, ladies were discreet when it comes to taking whitening supplements here in our country 7 years ago. But when popular celebrities became endorsers of glutathione supplements, the demand for whitening products surge.

     I'm also a lurker in different beauty forums before that's why I've read real experiences from users of this brand. I've seen more of positive results than negative ones. Almost 70-80% of women who were active in the discussion highly recommend this brand. Since I haven't tried this brand before, I'm not sure what are the differences of the old from the new formulation. This review is solely based on my personal experience. I've finished two bottles after six weeks. There were times I take one capsule and there were times I take two. To know more about my experience, scroll down dearies!

Product Review: Ishigaki Premium Plus Glutathione
A not so recent photo, this was taken in an event. You can see in the background that I'm bask under the sun. 
What I like:

  • The price- the cheapest glutathione brand in  the market today.
  • The bottle packaging is handy. It is tightly sealed once you purchase a bottle so no need to worry about contamination.
  • There's a stinky rotten egg odour once you open the bottle- it only means that it's authentic. I've read in some forums that authentic glutathione should smell like rotten egg. 
  • This glutathione also contains L-cysteine and N-Acetyl-Cysteine known as potent boosters to speed up the whitening process of the skin.
  • I didn't experienced any discomforts like vomiting, headache, nausea, breakouts, or whatsoever.
  • It made my skin glowing even if I always stay up late at night or if I only have 4 hours of sleep.
  • It lessened cystic pimples popping around my chin which I experience every month.
  • The color of my freckles lightened a bit while I'm taking this capsule.
  • After finishing 2 bottles, light scars from insect bites are not that visible.
  • It maintained my skin tone even. I took this last May 27 until June 30 and during those days, I'm always out in the sun. I attend events in the afternoon and there are times that I forgot to bring my umbrella.
  • I'm already fair to begin with but it made my skin not pale or yellow white but more of a pinkish/rosy white tone.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the package.

What I don't like:

  • Not easily accessible, you have to purchase it online.
  • No assurance if this product is BFAD approved.

Will I purchase? It's in the realm of possibility.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. One of the cheapest brands IMO. If you have a morena skin tone, it is best to use this brand for more than 3 months. The effectiveness of one product really varies from person to person. This supplement is also meant to treat blood disorders and serves as an ant-oxidant in the liver. So if you smoke, drink, and always stay late at night this supplement will also help cleanse the toxins from those I mentioned above in your body. Just leave a comment below if you questions and I will try my best to answer them. 

Have you tried taking glutathione as a daily supplement? Hope you can share your experience :)

  8. Hi. Do you think it's safe to take 3 caps + 1000 mg vit C, 3x a day (this would result to 9 caps of ishigaki gluta caps per day)? I ask cause I plan on consuming 3 bottles a month to yield faster results. Please advise. Thank you

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      I think you should follow the right dosing since it will over worked your kidneys. The maximum dosage of taking vitamin C for therapeutic purposed is 2,000 mg a day. I think consuming 3 bottles a month is too much, if you're 50-60 kg, 2 caps of Ishigaki capsule is the right dose for your weight.

    1. Hi Giordan,

      If you have fair skin na okay lang ang 1 capsule a day as maintenance. But if you have medium or dark skin tone, 2x a day talaga dapat. It also depends sa lifestyle mo, if ngpupuyat ka and nag smoke or drink, yung effect ng gluta will manifest muna sa pag detoxify ng system mo then saka pa mageffect and whitening.

      Reaction like those depends on your body. If you're acidic better take this 30 minutes after meal. I suggest you consult a doctor before taking any kind of supplements baka may mga ingredients na hindi ka talaga hiyang and causes gastrointestinal irritation.

  19. Ilang weeks po bago makita yung effect? (Gusto ko po kasi itry muna siya twice a day)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      Twice a day talaga yung start na dosage but depends din sa weight mo. It depends din kasi sa metabolism ng body, minsan 2 weeks pa lang nakikita na ng iba. If you have morena or dark skin tone talaga mga 3 months to 6 months. Depends din sa lifestyle mo yung effect ng product. If you smoke, drinks alcohol, and lagi napupuyat, mabagal and effect ng glutathione. Saka if nagpapa-araw ka pero wala ka gamit na sunblock, hindi ganun kabilis ang pagputi.

    1. Hi,

      Yes, magkaiba ng content saka color ng pills. Yung Ishigaki Premium (850mg) kasi nasa transparent na capsule while yung Ishigaki Advanced (1000 mg)opaque ang capsule. Difference nila sa content is ALA while yung premium naman may L-Cysteine. Those are glutathione boosters. Others kasi hindi hiyang sa ALA and sa L-Cysteine so may option which one to take.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Hell,

      Yes, pero continuous dapat ang pag-inom. Hindi mo sya agad mapapansin kasi yung mga areas na yan sensitive ang skin. Kahit na umiinom ka nito pero kung lagi naman masikip yung suot mo na shirt and underwear, nag cacause yun ng friction and may lead to darkening. So bale wala ang pag-inom mo kung na cocounter-act naman nun. Saka if you're using deo and anti-perspirant na nakaka-itim ng underarm, hindi mo makikita ang effect ng supplments pag ganun.

    1. Hi Samantha,

      Since you have fair skin naman, taking 1 cap is for maintenance na lang siguro para even pa din ang skin tone mo. If mas gusto mo pa pumuti, dapat 2 talaga in my opinion.

      Delete
    3. Hi Samantha,

      850 mg total nya kasama yung ibang ingredients not the glutathione alone. Mas okay na 1,00 mg Vitamin a day lang kasi masama din ang madaming vitamin c as it causes kidney stones. Recommended dosage ng vitamin C a day is 1,000-1,500 lang talaga. Ok naman ang 3 caps, pero mas safe and 2.

    1. Hi Jason,

      Hello :) Yay! thank you for that :) You mean you'll take 4 Ishi a day? Pasensya na if hindi ko masyado na gets. Recommended dosage kasi talaga is twice a day. Pero if you need to whiten your skin faster may nabasa ako dati na yung iba 4 caps a day pero 1 week lang nila ginawa yun.

      Sa Vitamin C kasi masyado ng madami ang 2,000 mg.
      If you're planning naman to take it na 2 agad sa morning or 2 agad sa evening pwede naman. Like once mo lang iinumin ang Ishigaki caps pero 2 na agad, morning man or evening yun.

      Kaya hinahati yung dosage para hindi ma overworked and Kidneys and other internal organs natin, IMO.

      If you are pimple prone before taking this product tapos nung nag-take ka nito nawala pimples mo, chances are pag stop ka babalik yung pimples mo. Pede kasi na yung pag-inom mo ng Ishigaki ang nag-clear ng pimples mo. Sometimes nasa lifestyle din kung bakit ka nag kakapimples.

    Replies
    1. Hi,

      I haven't tried Neocell + C Collagen kaya hindi ko sure if okay lang i-take at the same time. Much better sa gabi ang take ng collagen. You can take it with Ishigaki but give interval lang. Say take Ishigaki first then after an hour yung collagen na. Best taken with empty stomach and collagen or 30 minutes after meals.

    1. Hi Sybil,

      Thank you so much for dropping by :) It depends on your body. Since both naman Ishigaki, pede mo din alternate every month to see which one is effective talaga sayo. Swerte mo if both. Pero mas maganda 3 months continuous ka muna sa isa then saka ka switch.

    1. Hi,

      What's your skint one before taking Ishi? The effects also depends on your skin tone and lifestyle. If you're taking this then you're always out in the sun and you don't use sunblock or other kind of sun protection, chances are the effects will be really slowly. If you smoke or drink, then the whitening result will also become slower than the usual.

  56. Hi, is ishi premium really effective? Maputi/tisay na kasi ako but i want na pumuti pa ng konti and the most is to have the glowing and pinkish result. I am also taking 2tabs/x2day also of collagen. And i do smoke also. Should i take 1 or 2 tabs a day? With vit c? Thanks!

    1. Hi Paula,

      Yes, in my experience yes. Take 2 tabs a day para mas effective lalo na kung nag-smoke ka. Yes, with Vitamin C dapat.

  58. Hi Ms. Kath, I always read your blog. I have a morena skin tone then ngayon nagdark na because of summer activities. Magiging effective kaya sa akin yung Ishigaki? Ano po kaya mas ok yung Advanced o Premium? I'm confused po kasi. I am currently taking Vit-C caps na 1000 mg. Ok lang po ba sya isabay sa Ishigaki? Thank you so much po :)

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for reading my blog :) Yes, effective pa din naman pero depende sa metabolism mo. Regarding the Advanced o Premium, hiyangan din kasi. Yung iba mabilis ang effect sa advanced, yung iba naman mas okay sa premium. In my experience pareho sila naging effective sakin kaya lang magkaiba yung tingin ko sa color ng skin ko. Sa advanced white sa premium pinkish white. Yes, okay lang ang 1,000mg na vitamin c.

      As far as I know safe naman if hindi ka pa buntis. Siguro just to be sure, mag-stop ka na magtake ng gluta a 2 weeks before getting pregnant. Wala pa naman ako narinig na contraceptive and gluta. Actually, some have claims na it increases fertility pa nga daw but I don't have proof on that. Nabasa ko lang din online sa mga forums.

      You can take it twice a day pa din naman. If you're going to take Biofit be sure to take it before bedtime na, may interaction kasi ang laxative sa supplements. Pwede hindi masyado maabsorb ng katawan mo yung gluta kung iinom ka agad ng biofit tea. Give at least 4 hours interval.

    1. Hi,

      Ok naman as long as hindi ka acidic. I also do that before kasi yun lang ang available ng Vitamin C dito sa bahay- 1,000 mg. Basta wag na lalagpas ng 2,000 in total a day. Anyhoo, good luck! Sana effective sayo. Mas okay 30 minutes after meals if acidic ka. Give time muna yung stomach mo na paunti-unti ma digest yung kinain mo then take Ishi na.

  71. Hi Kath,

    Interesting ang thread na ito. Itatanong ko lang since effective siya, kung papipiliin ka, ano ang mas effective based on your experience? Ishi or Nuwhite? Kasi iniisip ko kung alin sa dalawa madami kasi nagsasabi na maganda ang nuwhite at dami din nagsasabi na maganda ang ishi premium. Also, nacurious lang ako yung iba nagsasabi ng weight, nagma-matter ba talaga ang timbang sa pag-inom nito? Salamat.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      Ishigaki Premium if I were to choose because it's cheaper than Nuwhite and faster results. From what I've read online, some based their computation sa standard dosage na 20 to 40 mg per weight in two divided doses. For example ako 55 kgs x 40 mg = 2,200 mg a day divided in two doses. It's only a guide pero not all naman are following this.

      Yan ang dosage talaga ng Ishi. Normal dosage ng Vitamin C is 500 mg a day but pwede naman kahit twice a day. Wag lang lalagpas ng 2,000 a day Vitamin C. Of course before taking this supplement dapat alam mo din sa sarile mo na healthy ka. Wala ka ibang sakit or other medication na mag-contraindicate sa isa't isa.

    1. Hi,

      Much better to buy sa Cheskas Store. Sila ang supplier ng Lazada dati but now hindi na. So not sure if galing pa din sa Cheskas Store yung sell na Ishi ng Lazada. Yes, you can take it kahit iba ang body clock mo. Just follow lang na twice a day with Vitamin C. 30 minutes before or after meals. For the consistency, usually 3-6 months bago makita ang maximum effect. Kung di ka naman nag-smoke, umiinom, stressed, at hindi ka na-aarawan lagi mas mabilis ang effect nya.
