ADVERTORIAL: Originally published 2 years ago, and I'm just recycling the post coz it's soooo helpful!
During my younger years (started when I entered in high school) I dreamed of having a fairer complexion just like my cousins. And those years, I have this believe that having a fairer and whiter skin makes you look good and beautiful, dresses well, and could gain confidence (which I don’t have before).
To be honest, I am one of the thousands of Asian women, who became obsessed in having a white skin. I’ve tried most of the whitening products available in the local market like whitening soap, whitening body lotions, etc. I almost got to the point of trying some “whitening pills” just to have a fairer skin (like when I was a toddler). But I didn’t do it, as I become focused on other things, and I set aside my little obsession.
I guess the only permanent thing in this world is CHANGE. I forgot my little obsession many years ago… and I moved on.
Now I’m knowledgeable enough of what is the definition of beauty for that suits me. The beauty, not only the one that is visible in our naked eye, but also the beauty that is visible with our spirit and emotions.
Like I’ve said I’ve tried lots of whitening beauty products, like those whitening soap, body lotions, deodorants, feminine wash etc. (I could name the brands if you like), and to tell you frankly, nothing have changed. I’m still the lady with a tan-complexion. Maybe one of the reasons is, I’m active outdoors.
Meaning, I’m not afraid to go out, even it’s so hot. Or I don’t mind basking my body under the sun (don’t worry I do it moderately). I’m not a type of person that will missed the good opportunity to go out and have some fun with good friends and family, just because I’m afraid that I will turn into a baked muffin.
Years have passed and I become open-minded to lots of definitions of beauty. Thanks for my constant love of reading books, and keeping myself updated with trends online (I love Internet), beauty has a wide definitions, according to each persons’ ideology, needs and wants.
As I’m growing and become more experienced in life, the definition of beauty becomes deeper and stronger to my senses. Like for instance, taking care of my body by eating the right and healthy foods, regular exercise, keeping myself active, and also taking some food / dietary supplements regularly, to maintain that “healthy glow” that I have now. Having a healthy body, mind and spirit are my most priority now, than my little obsession before.
Like I’ve said I become open-minded to things around me, and just few months back, I got curious with the effects of MET Tathione dietary supplement. I just got lucky that the company, IVI Ryo Corporation sent me some samples. Curiosity like a cat, I tried MET Tathione for 6 weeks (1 ½ months, consuming 1 bottle and a half) and sharing you here my hands-on experience and true effects of this dietary supplement.
Oops, but you said you are DONE with whitening stuffs, right? MET Tathione is a whitening pills, right?
I know that I’m not the only ladies in town who also tried (and some continuously using) MET Tathione. You could see some of the local reviews here, here and here. But I’m going to tell you EXCLUSIVELY the true effects of this supplement, and NOT JUST the part that helps you achieve fairer complexion. In order to fully understand what is GLUTATHIONE and MET Tathione, we’re gonna discuss it one by one.
What is Glutathione?
I'm talking about the mother of all antioxidants, the master detoxifier and maestro of the immune system. It's the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease -- yet you've probably never heard of it. It's the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer's disease.
The good news is that our body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete our glutathione. This leaves us susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And our liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of detoxification.
Glutathione is a very simple molecule that is produced naturally all the time in your body. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids -- cysteine, glycine and glutamine.
The secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule. It acts like fly paper and all the bad things in the body stick onto it, including free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals.
Normally glutathione is recycled in the body -- except when the toxic load becomes too great. And that explains why we are in such trouble.
Aside from being the mother of all antioxidants, glutathione as has effect on our melanin, which slows down the production of it, causing some of us to have a fairer or lighter complexion.
MET is a brand under IVI Ryo Corporation. It is the pioneering brand of glutathione brings you the latest in whitening: Algatrium. This product innovation makes MET Tathione three times more effective than the previous formulation in bringing out that radiant glow in your skin.
It works from the inside out, giving you evenly toned and lighter, glowing skin in as little as two weeks. One capsule contains a potent formula of reduced glutathione and an imported new antioxidant called Algatrium.
I’ve tried using MET Tathione for 6weeks (starting March 19) taking two (2) MET Tathione capsules daily after a meal.
On the 5th day, I’ve noticed a slight change on my skin. I’ve noticed that my body skin got healthier, and has this distinct “glow”. Also, I find myself less stress, and got more energy to work, and play with my partner (literally and sexually). I become more active compared to months that I haven’t take MET.
Another I’ve noticed, it increases my appetite for food (yum!) and when I’ve found out its part of the effects, I wouldn’t mind eating anything (like there’s no dieting). No wonder some of the consumers of MET shared that they become heavier because the increase on their appetite. We still need to continue our exercise routine (whatever routine exercise you are doing), to keep us fit and healthy. If you are a coach-potato-type of personality, with no exercise (at all) then for sure you will gain weight.
Since it is an antioxidant, it refreshes my whole body, inside and out making me feel energizes and stress-free. MET Tathione is safe, you don’t need prescription to get one (not unless you have some allergy issues). I even take it together with my other vitamin supplements (like Vitamin C and Folic Acids) which are good and make me “glow even better”. Not feeling any nausea, or any negative issues about it. It is available at most drugstores and selected beauty stores nationwide.
Did my complexion from having a natural tan-skin become fairer or whiter?
I’d say my skin becomes glowing and healthy, but it didn’t make my skin whiter or fairer. It didn’t have a whitening effect on me, probably because my melanin is very stubborn and so strong (laugh). Anyhow I like the effects that MET Tathione gives to my body, becomes healthier and smoother (yeah, even my partner and friends noticed it!).
MET Tathione gives me the beauty inside and out.
But this could be has a whitening effect to others. So there is no harm for trying.
MET Tathione is available at Mercury Drug, Watsons, South Star Drug, Rose Pharmacy, Shopwise and other leading drugstores nationwide. MET Capsule SRP PHP2,695.00 per bottle.
Will I continue using it despite it doesn’t give a whitening effect on me?
Yes, of course! I love what it gives to my inner and outside body, and giving me a healthy glowing tan-complexion (and my partner loves it). MET Tathione is also good for men. It has a FDA approval and its proven safe.
Remember to take two (2) Met Tathione capsules daily after a meal. (Or take 1 capsule after each meal, just take it twice each day).

But wait, it seems expensive!
Girls, here's my personal word-of-advice. If you are looking for a cheap-whitening-pills, then this post is not for you. If you want to INVEST to yourself, my advice is DON'T GO CHEAP, seriously. Most of those cheap whitening / dietary supplements didn't undergo proper health security procedures and other protocols and licenses. If you prefer the cheap ones, chances are you will not get the result that you are wishing for, worst you will spend more for curing the bad side-effects.
MET has FDA approval, and IVI Ryo Corporation has a very strict security protocol on checking and testing each batch products, upon its arrival here in the Philippines, as this supplements are made and manufactured straight from Japan.
If you can't afford the whole bottle, MET is available per sachet (for only Php90.00, packs of 2 capsules). But personally cost-wise, I recommend you to buy the whole bottle instead, because you will save MORE TIME and EFFORT, going back and forth to your favorite beauty store.
Available at Mercury Drug, Watsons, South Star Drug, Rose Pharmacy, Shopwise and other leading drugstores nationwide. MET Capsule SRP PHP2,695.00 per bottle.
