The announcement was made by Charlie Kotani, president, Kyowa Hakko USA.
Kyowa will sponsor a VendorWorks seminar on Friday, October 20, featuring Dean P. Jones, Ph.D. from the Department of Biochemistry at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Jones will discuss the historic science, current research and health benefits of Setria™. The seminar will be held in the Toscana Room, 3601-3604, 3610 from 10-11 a.m.
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 considered the body’s premier antioxidant and noteworthy for its long list of health benefits including:
• The most basic and abundant anti-oxidant within the body
• Reactivates spent vitamin C and E and restores their antioxidant capabilities
• Helps regenerate immune cells
• Helps protect skin from environmental stress
According to Karen E. Todd, Kyowa Hakko marketing director, “research shows that 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 Resilen™ 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.
