Even if you’re a supp-savvy bodybuilder with a stack that features everything but the kitchen sink, you may not have heard of glutathione. But this lesser-known compound might be the next ingredient to amp up your workouts.
Scientifically speaking, glutathione is a small protein molecule, called a tripeptide, that contains glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine, in γ-L-Glutamyl-L-cysteinylglycine form. It’s a crucial compound found in virtually everywhere in the human body, and it’s essential for optimal health and recovery from those grueling gym sessions.
1. SETRIA® GLUTATHIONE AND SETRIA® PERFORMANCE BLEND SUPPORT GLUTATHIONE LEVELS.
Glutathione is an essential compound in the body, but it’s conditionally essential—meaning that while your body can produce it, it doesn’t create the quantity your body needs for optimal health. Supporting glutathione levels can help athletes increase immunity and help the body destroy free radicals, among other performance-boosting benefits you’ll find below. Setria® is a unique form of glutathione that has been clinically shown to raise blood glutathione levels.*
2. GLUTATHIONE DESTROYS FREE RADICALS.
Free radicals are an unavoidable part of everyday life, and exercise increases the rate at which they’re generated. Antioxidants help counteract those free radicals, and glutathione is often referred to as the “master antioxidant.” It sets up shop in every cell, binding to harmful free radicals and neutralizing them.
3. IT ALSO SUPPORTS IMMUNITY.
Everyone could use an immunity boost, and Glutathione can help in a couple of ways. It supports white blood cell function, and stimulates natural kill cells. Research on Setria® Glutathione has shown a two-fold increase in natural killer cell activity.*
4. GLUTATHIONE NEUTRALIZES ELIMINATES TOXINS.
We don’t need to tell you that toxins pretty much surround us, whether in the air or the things we eat. Glutathione helps the body eliminate harmful carcinogens, chemicals, and other toxins that the body has absorbed. It can also help neutralize those that the body hasn’t absorbed yet in the GI tract.
5. SETRIA® PERFORMANCE BLEND SUSTAINS NITRIC OXIDE LEVELS.
Looking for an edge during your sweat sessions? L-Citrulline, an amino acid found in Setria® Performance Blend, has been shown to support NO production via its unique advantage of more effectively increasing arginine than arginine itself.* The combination of Kyowa Quality® L-Citrulline and Setria® Glutathione specifically can help sustain NO levels, and as a result, improve strength and performance.*
6. IT ALSO AIDS IN VASODILATION.
NO also helps blood vessels relax, letting blood flow easily to muscles while you train and facilitating optimal performance. With NO levels sustained thanks to Setria® Performance Blend, your muscles will get an oxygen and nutrient boost for a great pump every time.
*p<0.05, vs ControlA combination of L-Citrulline (CIT) and Setria supplementation significantly increased NO levels in HUVECs.
*p<0.05, vs PlaceboOne week of daily oral supplementation with 200 mg of Setria and 2 g of L-Citrulline enhanced NO levels at 30 min post-exercise.
