Kyowa Hakko USA Introduces Setria® Glutathione

October 16, 2006

New York, NY – Kyowa Hakko USA has launched the newest addition to their family of branded ingredients, Setria® Glutathione, recognized as an indispensable and versatile antioxidant. The announcement was made by Charlie Kotani, president, Kyowa Hakko USA.

The most basic and abundant antioxidant within the body system, Setria® Glutathione is a tri-peptide composed of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine. The key benefit of the ingredient is its ability to bind to organic toxins, as well as heavy metals, solvents and pesticides, and transform them into a form that can be excreted in urine or bile. Setria® Glutathione is noteworthy for its long list of health benefits including reactivating spent vitamin C and E and restoring their antioxidant capabilities.

According to Karen E. Todd, Kyowa Hakko USA marketing director, “research shows that cell Glutathione blood levels decrease as we age. Aging individuals can recover from diseases and accidents like younger people do, provided they maintain higher levels of Glutathione in their systems.”

Todd adds, “Individuals with higher levels of Glutathione in their blood and tissues could live longer and healthier lives.”

Kyowa Hakko, maker of the branded ingredients Cognizin™ Citicoline, Kyowa CoQ10™, Lumistor™ L-Hydroxyproline and Hydrafend™ Hyaluronic Acid, also offers manufacturers and formulators one of the industry’s most extensive lines of over 50 amino acids and related compounds, including D-Amino acids and branch-chain amino acids, as well as nucleic acids, bio-products and fine chemicals.
