Setria - Glutathione
A 2015 study using Kyowa Hakko’s Setria ingredient found that glutathione may strengthen the immune system in adults.
Results of a six-month randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial indicated that a daily glutathione dose of 1,000 milligrams was associated with a greater than two-fold increase in natural killer (NK) cell activity, compared to placebo.
“Seeing the two-fold increase in NK cell activity from glutathione supplementation indicates that glutathione could be playing an important role in boosting the body’s immune system,” said Dr John Richie of Penn State University, who led the research and has been studying glutathione for more than 30 years.
