It is a dietary supplement designed to provide nutritional support for detoxification and better immune function. It contains L-Glutathione, N-Acetyl Cystein (NAC), Collagen, Grape Seed Extract, and Vitamin C. These antioxidants provide the body the necessary defense against harmful free radicals therefore making the skin look lighter and whiter. It likewise helps the liver function better.
It means that the active ingredients are not released in the acidic stomach environment, rather on a more alkaline space (the upper intestine) therefore absorption is higher. Having a technologically advanced capsule, it protects the ingredients from gastric juices and enzymes. Once the capsule detects a more alkaline environment, it is only then that the ingredients are released.
Some experts believe that due to the damage done by the acidic nature of the stomach, only 10-15% are actually absorbed. With Delayed Release Technology, at least 50% are absorbed by the body.
The capsule has an acid resistant coating that protects the ingredients. It remains intact until it reaches a more alkaline area where it breaks down. This makes the body absorb the ingredients on a higher rate.
Setria® Glutathione is an ultra pure absorbable tripeptide that can help replenish the body’s reserves in times of need.* Manufactured in JAPAN through a patented fermentation process to GMP standards, Setria is pure, vegetarian and allergen-free.
It is the stable form of the amino acid cysteine. It is a precursor of glutathione and increases glutathione availability. It donates the amino acid cysteine to help form the antioxidant glutathione.
N-acetyl-L-cysteine is a precursor in the body to the critical antioxidant glutathione, which is produced within cells, particularly by the liver. N-acetyl L-cysteine is an excellent source of sulfhydryl groups, and is converted in the body into metabolites capable of stimulating glutathione synthesis, promoting detoxification, and acting directly as a free radical scavenger. It provides many of the same benefits as GSH, both through its own detoxifying and antioxidant function.NAC can help the liver to detoxify pollutants such as cigarette smoke, auto exhaust, agricultural chemicals, cyanide, and toxic metals such as mercury, arsenic, chromium and lead, and can potentially help control the toxicity of some chemotherapy treatments.Studies suggest NAC may support respiratory function through its activity on viscous mucus.NAC is involved with the regulation of homocysteine levels.
Rich in flavonoids, these phytochemicals have antioxidant properties.. The anti-oxidative activities of grape seed extracts are found to be much stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E and may involve radical scavenging, quenching, and enzyme-inhibiting actions. The most valuable flavonoids in grape seed extract are procyanidolic oligomers (also known as proanthocyanidins). Beyond their antioxidant powers, proanthocyanidins may also help atherosclerosis, gastric ulcer, large bowel cancer, cataracts and diabetes. Grape seed extract is effective in reducing the hyperpigmentation of women with chloasma.
Grape seed extract is effective in reducing the hyperpigmentation of women.
A form of Vitamin C. It offers many health benefits, including boosting the immune system and energy levels, as well as being a more bio-available form of VITAMIN C than other forms such as ascorbic acid.
Oral bioavailability measures the amount of a nutrients/drug that actually gets into circulation within the body after being ingested
Not every nutrient you swallow is absorbed by your body.
The bioavailability of nutritional supplements is an often overlooked factor when comparing supplement brands. It has major implications for the efficacy and particularly value for money of a supplement.
Bioavailability basically means “the proportion of a nutrient or bioactive ingredient that was absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract” (1) for use or storage in the body.
For a dietary supplement ingredient to be absorbed it must pass through the intestinal wall lining and enter the bloodstream. Then find its way to target organs and body systems where it's put to use.
Under the US Dietary and Health Education Act 1994 (DSHEA) nutritional supplements are regulated under ‘food’ GMP – this means absorption rates do not have to be tested – this has played a part in creating a credibility problem for the supplement industry.
The following factors all influence the total absorption of a supplement. But the most important one is in bold below.
The most important thing to look for when shopping for vitamins is not price, which absolutely must take a secondary position to (1) bioavailability, (2) accuracy in the amounts of ingredients stated on the label, and (3) age and quality of the ingredients.
The most crucial aspect to consider when evaluating any supplement is its bioavailability (which is synonymous to absorption).
Most supplements are manufactured to a price standard rather than a best science standard, and bioavailability is left in the hit or miss section.And the result is that the active ingredients, released into the stomach, are attacked by stomach acids and mostly destroyed.
High quality supplements are formulated to allow much higher levels of bioavailability than cheaper, mass produced vitamin and mineral products. This is because they are science based and use more sophisticated manufacturing processes. This is one reason why they cost more (but work better!).
The delivery system allows capsules to pass through the stomach intact, without being damaged by stomach acids. This is crucial because exposure to stomach acids can cause some of the most important nutrients, such as L-Glutathione, Resveratrol and SAMe, to be converted to various salt forms and to lose most of their potency, as well as potentially becoming inactive (and, therefore, of no use to your body).
When the products reach the upper intestine, the special CAPSULE disintegrates and releases the active ingredients for passage through the intestinal membrane into the blood stream. The CAPSULE , which is inert, then continues on through the digestive system and is passed from the body.
The special CAPSULES is made up of polymers which are non-reactive and are not absorbed by the body nor affect it in any way. These polymers are pH sensitive meaning they will not react to the more acidic ph levels in the stomach but will react and disintegrate in the alkaline environment in the small intestine.
How can manufacturers be sure that the special coating does what it’s supposed to do? By using tests which involve placing sample capsules in simulated gastric juices (SGF) and in simulated intestinal fluid (SIF).These are the methods we will use which is in conformance to protocols of the British and US pharmacopeia.
