Clinical Tests Demonstrate Long-Term Effectiveness of Oral Glutathione Supplements - Kyowa Study
Date:5/7/2013

NEW YORK, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Glutathione is the body's master antioxidant involved in protecting cells and tissues from oxidants and a large variety of other toxins and insults. Debate over whether orally administered glutathione could be effective at enhancing glutathione levels in cells and tissues has simmered for years. Now, a Penn State College of Medicine study shows oral supplementation is effective in increasing the body's stores of this vital nutrient.

The study of 54 healthy adults revealed that glutathione (GSH) levels of those taking 1000mg of Setria® Glutathione a day for six months increased 30%-35% in many compartments including red blood cells, lymphocytes and plasma, and of those taking 250mg of Setria® Glutathione increased in whole blood. And as glutathione stores increased in the high-dose group, so did the function of natural killer (NK) cells, a marker for increased immune defense, said John P. Richie, Jr. , Ph.D., professor of Public Health Sciences and Pharmacology at Penn State College of Medicine.

"A battery of immune function markers was examined after three months of glutathione supplementation and NK cytotoxicity was enhanced more than two-fold for participants taking 1000mg daily doses," Dr. Richie said. "We believe GSH supplementation may represent an effective intervention strategy for disease prevention and may enhance immune function."

There is a school of thought that contends that glutathione is broken down in the stomach and intestine and effective increases of GSH must come via intravenous administration. However, previous animal studies showed that orally administered glutathione is bioavailable a
