Going Global with Glubio® – Kyowa Hakko Expands Global Reach with the first Setria® Glutathione Product in Indonesia

PT IMEDCO, an Indonesian-based pharmaceutical company committed to developing science-backed products that support wellness, prevention, and treatment for diseases, continues raising the bar with their latest product launch of Glubio®, a pure Glutathione supplement targeted for those who may have conditions associated with low glutathione levels in the body.

“We are a pharmaceutical company that values lives. People are our focus, and we serve to improve their quality of life,” comments Suryanto, President Director of PT IMEDCO, “With Glubio®, we intend to continue doing just that, utilizing Setria®

Glutathione’s pure, allergen-free, patented, and clinically-studied form of glutathione to increase the amount of antioxidants in the body.” Glutathione is widely used for supporting the immune system, healthy detoxification pathways and liver health. An additional benefit is that Setria® has been researched for brightening skin*. PT IMEDCO is excited to introduce this multi-use supplement into their line of products for the benefit of patients and consumers.

Glutathione, known as the body’s ‘master antioxidant,’ is found, to varying degrees, in all cells, tissues, body fluids and organ systems in the body. Glutathione can neutralize potentially harmful free radicals, eliminate toxins, chemicals and potential carcinogens absorbed in the body, and can reactivate other antioxidants that are important for skin, hair and nail health like Vitamin E. However, glutathione levels may decrease due to various factors such as age, diet, UV exposure, health conditions, weight, medications, and poor lifestyle habits. Supplementing with glutathione and incorporating glutathione-rich foods into your diet may help raise glutathione levels in the body*.

“Setria® Glutathione has been clinically studied to effectively raise the body’s stores of glutathione*, making it the optimal ingredient choice for Glubio’s first pure glutathione product,” notes Honomi Watanabe of Scientific Affairs Group, Marketing Department of KYOWA HAKKO BIO CO., LTD., “With Kyowa Hakko Bio having established innovative fermentation technology for manufacturing glutathione as early as 1960s, Setria® offers a pure form of glutathione that coincides with PT IMEDCO’s efforts to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of our products.”

With Glubio’s launch marking the first Setria® Glutathione branding product in Indonesia, Kyowa Hakko is thrilled to further expand their health ingredient development and manufacturing efforts into new borders, advancing their overall mission toward improving and preventing health conditions through clinically-studied ingredients for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and food products across the globe.
