Product Review: Ishigaki Glutathione Coffee

Monday, January 09, 2017

     Yes, you've read that right :) The favorite glutathione brand now comes in delicious coffee. I received two boxes of Ishigaki Glutathione Coffee last December and as a self-confessed coffee lover, I immediately opened the box when it reached our doorsteps.

     Coffee lovers can now enjoy the benefits of skin whitening, anti-aging, and detoxification by drinking this product. I was skeptical for a few seconds before I empty my first sachet in a cup of hot water because I have no idea if this really tastes like coffee despite the added ingredients. To my surprise, I totally enjoyed my first cup of Ishigaki Glutathione Coffee. More details about the product and my thoughts after consuming 2 boxes (20 sachets) below :)

Friday, March 04, 2016

     Glutathione is one famous whitening supplement that sells like hot cakes here in our country. Today, there are different preparations or type of glutathione- it can be topical, oral, intravenous, and the sublingual. If you're into skin whitening, I presume that you have tried the first three that I've mentioned above. These are all easily accessible in the market and in different dermatology clinics today. First time glutathione users always have a question in mind and it's all about the effectiveness of the brand they're taking.

     Well, if you're a a long time oral glutathione user and wants to try another form then it’s time to wake up to whiter, brighter and more radiant skin with Thiocell, the first and only glutathione supplement in lozenge form. Sharing with you a more information about the product that promises to help you achieve that radiant glow you’ve always wanted! More about Thiocell- the premium glutathione that truly delivers below :)

Thiocell Glutathione

  • Thiocell is the medical breakthrough patented by Dr. Theodore Hersh, a renowned professor of the Emory University School of Medicine, who has over 20 patents under his name in the development of glutathione and selenium products. 
  • After years of research and clinical study, he discovered a newer, safer, and more effective way for the body to absorb and use glutathione.
  • It is well known that glutathione offers countless benefits. Not only does it help in skin whitening, it also boosts your immune system,enabling the body to fight off free radicals and prevents further damage at the cellular level, which causes skin aging. 
  • Proven to be the more superior product in the market, Thiocell is the first and only oral glutathione in lozenge form. 
  • It is clinically proven to reduce pigmentation and achieve healthier, brighter and more beautiful skin in as early as 2 weeks. 
  • The secret to Thiocell’s outstanding performance lies in three key fundamentals: the GCS synergy, Lozenge delivery, and the science of premium whitening.

GCS Synergy

  • Thiocell is formulated using a safe but potent combination of L-Glutathione, Vitamin C and L-Selenomethionine. 
  • This synergistic balance of key ingredients not only primes the body to absorb glutathione more effectively, but encourages the natural production of more glutathione in the body. 
  • Enjoy double benefits of skin whitening, anti-aging, and an improved, healthy immune system. 
  • Thiocell also contains Vitamin D and Grapeseed Extract, which boost the clinical benefits of glutathione

Lozenge Form for Optimal Absorption

     Other products may claim to be equal because they each contain 500mg of glutathione, but how much of it is really absorbed in the body? Thiocell differentiates itself in this aspect, promising optimal absorption, through its unique and more effective method of glutathione delivery– Lozenge form. 

     The grape-flavored lozenge is dissolved in the oral cavity and can be consumed safely. Since Thiocell is absorbed through the oral cavity, all the active ingredients enter the systemic circulation intact, and that ensures highest efficacy.

     “Unlike Thiocell, glutathione capsules lose much of its potency because when a capsule is ingested, it goes through several metabolic processes and passes through several organs like the stomach and intestines in the digestive tract. With Thiocell, the glutathione dissolves immediately in your mouth and is directly absorbed into the body through the oral cavity. This in effect reduces the damaging oxidative stress on organs,” adds Ramesh. Fast and effective, you are assured that nothing of the 500 mg of glutathione goes to waste.

What the experts have to say with Thiocell

  • Thiocell is indeed an exceptional product, and has been clinically proven to be more effective. 
  • No longer are you wasting essential nutrients that are lost in metabolism, and no longer will you need to suffer painful injections and bruising caused by IV glutathione injections. 
  • You can achieve a healthier, more radiant glow safely and quickly.

Thank you to these dermatologists who enlightened us about Thiocell during the event.
   In the clinical study* conducted in the Philippines, which tested the efficacy of Thiocell in Filipino women, the results were far more convincing because patients experienced skin lightening in as early as two weeks. Thiocell undoubtedly delivers.  
     By end of 8th week, 100% of patients reported lighter and brighter skin. Even on the cellular level, the Mexameter readings (a tool used to measure the color of the skin) showed a significant reduction in melanin production and pigmentation. The studies also confirmed that Thiocell is safe for long-term use. 
     Supported by science, confirmed by doctors - Thiocell is, indeed, the more trusted product when it comes to achieving whiter, brighter and more beautiful skin. * CLINICAL STUDY: *International Journal of Dermatology 2016, 55, 153–157
     I've learned a lot during the event from the doctors and the makers behind Thiocell. They've answered some of the questions that I have in mind when it comes to taking oral glutathione supplements. I'm relieved to hear from the dermatologists that taking glutathione is not only for whitening purposes. It still depends on the lifestyle of an individual if the product will be effective or not. Take this simple example: You're taking oral glutathione but you are always under the sun and you don't wear sunblock, then it simply defeats the purpose.

Thiocell Glutathione #NewWayOfWhitening Launch

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

     Whitening products are selling like hotcakes here in our country. The pursuit of having paper white, flawless, and glowing skin is still in. It's a no brainer that if you're into whitening and wants faster results, then you prolly have step up the game into a higher notch. I know that some of you may resort to oral supplements other than topical skin care products for faster results. I presume that most of you have already seen or heard different brands of glutathione sold in the market today.

     The most common oral glutathione products are in capsule form. Some says that not all the contents of glutathione capsule will be absorbed by the body because of the metabolism process. I will not explain this further since I'm not an expert or a medical professional who have the knowledge to expound on that. What I'll share with you today is a new form of glutathione that promises to give you a 100% percent absorption rate because the moment a lozenge is being dissolved in the oral cavity, faster absorption will take place. Let me introduce to you, Thiocell Glutathione and discover a new way of whitening below!

What is Thiocell Glutathione?

  • Thiocell is considered as the breakthrough premium Glutathione supplement in the Philippine market today that promises to be the most safe and effective whitening and anti-aging product.
  • Thiocell is the brainchild of the immense medical studies of renowned American doctor, Dr. Theodore Hersh. Thiocell is one of Dr. Theodore’s 20 US Patented formulation to date. It is clinically proven and widely accepted as a master oxidant.
  • Developed with American science and equipped with advanced technology, Thiocell is indeed the science of premium whitening. 
  • It is the newest glutathione supplement that has clinical studies on its efficacy and safety published at the International Journal of Dermatology
  • Thiocell is in lozenge form. It is like candy that dissolves in your mouth. The absorption starts the minute you take it, giving you the full dose of its power combination of Glutathione, Vitamin C and Selenium.

     If you're a long time glutathione user, I'm sure that you will be more interested to know the ingredients of each lozenge. Surprisingly, this glutathione has a unique combination because of L-Selenomethionine. It's the first combination that I've seen because common combinations are usually composed of L-glutathione, NAC, and ALA. See the ingredients below:

  • L-glutathione (reduced) 500mg – an antioxidant that whitens your skin
  • Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 100mg – It aids in skin whitening and boosts our immune system
  • Grape seed extract 25mg – has a collagen effect
  • Vitamin D 200 IU -antiaging
  • Vitamin E 10 IU -fat soluble antioxidant that is essential for maintenance of healthy skin.
  • L-Selenomethionine 100 mcg -has anti melanoma activity, with protective effects against UV-induced DNA damage. It also reduces inflammation and pigmentation.
  • Take one lozenge a day then let it dissolve slowly in the mouth. It is best taken at first thing in the morning.

     During the event, Dr. Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations debunked the myths on skin whitening and glutathione. She shared some tips on how to take care of the skin from within. I've also learned that there are no studies claiming the effectiveness of oral glutathione in skin whitening should you wish to take it for a long span of time. You should take it for two-three months max then stop for a month or two then you may continue again. After her talk, we were introduced to Thiocell Glutathione and what are the benefits it can do to our body aside from whitening.

Product Review: COSMO Skin GSE (Grape Seed Extract)

Monday, October 14, 2013

     Taking care of our skin is not as easy as one, two, three. We need to look for skin care products that will give us positive results for a long period of time. I don't have flawless skin and my skin tend's to act up every time I change my skin care routine. I have sensitive skin which is 80% hormonal and I already tried almost all commercial brands from the cheapest up to high-end ones. The worst state of my skin was during college years and after giving birth. Would you believe me if I tell you that I once go to facial salons every week for cleaning? Yes, if my memory serves me right that was twelve years ago. During that time, my only hope to temporarily stop my breakouts was through facial cleaning and pricking- Ouch! I know :( Even if my parents told me to stop because nothing good really happened to my skin, I still persisted and to tell you honestly I've wasted my time, money and effort because after a year, nothing really had changed. 

      Fast forward, my skin literally stopped from breaking out after college graduation. I don't know what happened but it just stopped like that. I'm so happy that I don't have to think about it again and again until I become so depressed with my pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. What I remember was I use the same skin care products day and night and observe proper hygiene meaning no popping of pimples and I avoided touching my face every now and then. But another sad story happened to my skin when I became pregnant, zits started to appear all over my face again, this time I'm really sure that it was hormonal and I cannot treat it with commercial brands because I'm conceiving. This time I resorted to natural and organic soaps to address my skin care problems and voila! Until now, natural and organic products became my skin's bestest friend.

     Don't think that I have clear skin now, yes it's 80% clear from major breakouts but there are times that even if I use the products that made my skin better, chances are I still suffer from cystic acne, blackheads and whiteheads because of my hormones. Lets also add another factor, my age. I'm on my early 30's now so anti-aging products tops my list when it comes to skin care. So after reading forums and had a little bit of research, I considered taking skin care supplements that will help restore my skin's radiance and give my pale white skin some glow that it needs even without makeup. If you'll ask me why I resorted to taking skin care supplements, then my answer is that I believe in taking care of our body/skin inside and out.
