Ditch The Regular Spring Body Cleanses for "Master Antioxidant” Glutathione, by Kyowa Hakko

Share Article

Research shows that the powerful antioxidant glutathione helps the body remove a variety of harmful toxins.

Today is the first day of spring, which means it is time for a restart or refresh that often includes a cleanse or “detox” for your body. Detox or detoxification means the removal of toxins from the body, including common toxins like pesticides, mercury, lead, arsenic and chlorine. While your body’s systems come equipped with a complex set of mechanisms and compounds designed to eliminate toxins, your body can continually absorb more through food, water and air. Ridding your body of common toxins can help increase energy levels, boost your immune system, and it promotes healthy aging and overall wellness.

That’s where many popular detox methods come in to help your body fast-track the process and to help get you feeling good for warmer weather and spring activities. However, many people think a spring detox means fasting or drinking excessive amounts of liquids, but there are other ways to make sure your body is getting what it needs and getting rid of what it doesn’t need.

Often called the "master antioxidant," glutathione is critical for protecting cells in the body from the damaging effects of oxidative stress and toxins, while also supporting immune health. Sometimes this naturally occurring antioxidant can become depleted in the body due to causes like environmental factors and lifestyle choices. Glutathione supplementation can support the function of your liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract and intestines – your body’s major detoxification pathways.

Kyowa Hakko, a global manufacturer of research-backed Setria® Glutathione, conducted a study on glutathione which found that daily consumption of glutathione supplements was effective at increasing the amount of glutathione in the human body by up to 35 percent when taken daily at a dose of 1,000 milligrams for six months.

“Glutathione is present in every cell of the body, but concentrations are significantly higher in liver cells than anywhere else, said Dr. Danielle Citrolo, PharmD, scientific and regulatory affairs manager for Kyowa Hakko USA. “In the liver, glutathione binds to toxins to ensure they’re removed or excreted, which is an important step in getting them out of your body,”

Given all the ways your body’s levels of glutathione can become depleted, starting on a recommended supplemental daily dose could be what your body needs this spring to detox and stay healthier.
