PRODUCT REVIEW: Watsons Glutathione and Milk Thistle + Alpha Lipoic Acid Capsule

Last year, Watsons launched its own brand of high quality and affordable generics medicines- Watsons Generics
One of the products I received in the press kit was the Glutathione and Milk Thistle + Alpha Lipoic Acid Dietary Supplement.

According to WebMD:  

People take Glutathione by mouth for 
• treating cataracts 
• treating glaucoma
•preventing aging
• treating or preventing
 ○ alcoholism
 ○ asthma
 ○ cancer
 ○ heart disease (atherosclerosis and high cholesterol)
 ○ hepatitis
 ○ liver disease
 ○ diseases that weaken the body’s defense system (including AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome)
 ○ memory loss
 ○ Alzheimer’s disease 
 ○ osteoarthritis
 ○ Parkinson’s disease
• Glutathione is also used for maintaining the body’s defense system (immune system)
• and fighting metal and drug poisoning.

Milk Thistle 

Milk thistle is used most often for liver disorders, including liver damage caused by chemicals, Amanita phalloides mushroom poisoning, jaundice, chronic inflammatory liver disease, cirrhosis of the liver, and chronic hepatitis. Nevertheless, researchers have not yet concluded with certainty that milk thistle is effective for any of these uses.

Milk thistle is also used for loss of 
• appetite
• heartburn (dyspepsia)
• gallbladder complaints.

Some people use milk thistle for 

• diabetes
• hangover
• diseases of the spleen
• prostatecancer
• malaria
• depression
• uterine complaints
• increasing breast milk flow
• allergy symptoms
• starting menstrual flow.
• memory loss
• chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS
• cancerliver disease
• diseases of the heart 
• blood vessels (including a disorder called cardiac autonomic neuropathy)
• Lyme disease
Alpha-lipoic acid is also used to treat eye-related disorders, such as damage to the retina, cataractsglaucoma, and an eye disease called Wilson’s disease.

My Experience using Watsons Glutathione and Milk Thistle + Alpha Lipoic Acid Capsule

Before Glutathione in Asia became associated with whiter skin, it was first and foremost known as an antioxidant. When it comes to the whitening effect of Glutathione, I didn't notice any changes on my skin tone or visible result on anything, in fact I felt like my skin became a bit darker but probably because I was out in the sun almost all day everyday while taking these capsules. 

Overall, I just love all the benefits I learned from taking these supplement. It's a generic supplement from Watsons that is affordable. I have already finished one box (30 capsules). 

I will buy again and continue using this product.
