Healthy Aging and the Science Behind Glutathione – Nature’s “Master Antioxidant”

April 19, 2018 - New York, NY USA

Kyowa expert to present clinical reviews of Setria® Glutathione at CMA show

The human body relies on a powerful defender for protection from the toxins and free radicals of daily life: glutathione. As we age, the body’s natural ability to produce this “master antioxidant” declines. Older adults may need to supplement their diets to boost glutathione levels. 

Karen Todd, Registered Dietitian and Sr. Director of Global Marketing for Kyowa Hakko USA, will review scientific studies of Setria® Glutathione for Innovation and Supplier Expo attendees on May 2, 2018 from 15:10 – 15:40, at Dockside Darling Harbour in Sydney. The conference is sponsored by Complementary Medicines Australia (CMA).

Ms. Todd’s presentation – “The power of prevention: Supporting healthy aging with Setria® Glutathione” – will review science behind Setria® and how it helps protect our bodies as we grow older. Setria® Glutathione is manufactured by Kyowa Hakko Bio Co., Ltd., through a proprietary fermentation process.

One study shows glutathione declines in the mid-40s, with further drops after 60 years old. This is due to decreased enzyme availability, as well as lowered ability to synthesize glutathione.

“Studies have shown that low blood glutathione levels would negatively affect the liver and immune system, and is associated with increased risk of disease,” said Ms. Todd. “Setria® has been clinically shown to raise blood glutathione levels, promote immune health, and support anti-agine.”
