Glutathione Herxheimer Reaction?
I finally managed to get my hands on some Upgraded Glutathione and started on the recommended dose of 1ml a day in the morning, at least half an hour before food. I was expecting to feel great but instead I felt pretty terrible - super sluggish and I even fell into a two hour nap because I couldn't keep my eyes open. This continued for several days so I ended up reducing my dose to 0.5ml and this has helped somewhat, but I am still feeling markedly lethargic.
I was just wondering if anyone has any insight into this reaction? Has anyone else experienced this? I thought it might be a herxheimer reaction because I have about 20lbs to lose so I imagine there are a lot of toxins in my cells, though I am surprised it would be so strong as prior to taking the Upgraded Glutathione, I was taking N-Acetyl Cysteine and Alpha Lipoic Acid to encourage my body to produce more glutathione.
Any help would be much appreciated! I want to stick with the glutathione because there have been so many great reviews but I don't know how long this detox will last and the benefits will start.
