Clinical Tests Demonstrate Long-Term Effectiveness of Oral Glutathione Supplements - Kyowa Study
Whether or not humans can absorb orally administered glutathione has been debated by the medical community for years. Now a Penn State College of Medicine study shows that oral supplementation of glutathione is an effective means of enhancing the body’s stores of this vital nutrient.
Penn State College of Medicine conducted a 6-mo randomized‚ double-blind‚ placebo controlled trial to determine the impact of GSH administration at 250 mg/day and 1000 mg/day on GSH levels in different blood components and exfoliated buccal mucosal cells.
After 6 mo in both high and low dose GSH groups‚ GSH levels were increased in blood and erythrocytes in a dose responsive manner. Maximum increases of 30-35% in RBC‚ plasma‚ and lymphocytes and 260% in buccal cells (P<0.05) were observed in the high dose group. In most cases‚ the increases were dose and time dependent and levels returned to baseline after a 1-month washout. A battery of immune function markers was also examined after 3 mo of GSH supplementation and Natural Killer (NK) cytotoxicity was enhanced> 2-fold in the high dose group (P<0.05).
Setria® Glutathione is a clinically studied‚ absorbable form of glutathione (GSH) that can help replenish the body’s reserves that may be depleted as a result of poor lifestyle choices‚ stress or natural aging. Present in all tissues and body fluids‚ GSH plays important protective roles throughout the body‚ including the lungs‚ the digestive tract‚ and the cardiovascular system. Studies show a direct correlation between overall health and higher GSH levels‚ and that levels decrease substantially with age. Higher glutathione status and/or dietary intakes have been correlated with good cardiovascular‚ oral‚ and eye health.
