How do you improve on the No. 1 selling brand of glutathione in natural product supermarkets? For Setria® Glutathione, the answer is offering information in six additional languages and making it easier for consumers and healthcare professional to find products that contain Setria® Glutathione.

The health benefits, where to find and the science supporting Setria® is now available in Spanish, German, Italian, French, Thai and Bahasa Indonesian. Broadening language options made sense since health-conscious consumers aren’t unique to one country or culture, said Karen E. Todd, Sr. Director Global Brand Marketing, Kyowa Hakko U.S.A.

“Active individuals around the world are embracing the physical and mental benefits of Setria®, so it made sense to provide information in multiple languages” she said. “More than 100 brands incorporate Setria® into dietary supplements, workout powders, and beverages. It’s become a truly global brand.”

New icons, graphics, and images make it easy to locate relevant information, especially for active individuals looking for additional ways to boost immune health and reduce oxidative stress, Todd said.

Glutathione — found in virtually every cell of the human body — is well-known for protecting cells from oxidative stress and toxins. Clinical studies show that daily supplementation with Setria® dramatically increases glutathione levels in cells and tissue.2 *

Setria® plays a key role in protecting all kinds of cells from the damaging effects of ingested chemicals and potential carcinogens the body has already absorbed. It also assists in protein synthesis, DNA repair, enzyme function, transport, and cell maturation. Optimal levels of glutathione also are associated with physical and mental health. Setria® has been shown to help reduce wrinkles and drooping skin. In addition, some cultures use glutathione as a skin brightener to lower melanin levels, which also helps fade aging spots.3*

Setria® is made via an innovative fermentation process that results in a pure form of glutathione that:

  • Helps regenerate oxidized Vitamin C back to its active form*
  • Supports glutathione-dependent enzymes crucial for detoxification within the body*
  • Assists glutathione S-transferases in the safe elimination of toxins*
  • Aids the detoxification of xenobiotics in the liver*
  • Backs better immune response*
  • Promotes healthy aging by contributing to the body’s antioxidant defenses and glutathione levels that naturally decline with age*

Setria® is made in Japan by Kyowa Hakko Bio Co., Ltd. Setria uses span immune support, skin health, fitness, and healthier aging. Kyowa completed Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) self-affirmation for Setria® Glutathione in 2018.*

Kyowa Hakko launched Setria® Performance Blend in 2017, a combination of Setria® L-Glutathione and L-citrulline, an amino acid that produces the nitric oxide (NO) needed to help blood vessels relax. NO typically breaks down in seconds. New research in resistance-trained males suggests that Setria® Performance Blend may help sustain NO levels, which could lead to reduced fatigue and faster recovery.4 *
