Introducing… setria-logo


In keeping with our mandate to bring you the latest in innovative products, Trans Chem Pty Ltd. is now the exclusive distributor in Australia and New Zealand of Setria® Glutathione, which is making positive headlines around the world.


The Master Antioxidant

Groundbreaking TGA approval of Setria® Glutathione was received in October 2014. Setria® Glutathione is a unique tripeptide consisting of three amino acids: glutamate, cysteine, and glycine. Glutathione is found to varying degrees in all cells, tissues, body fluids, and organ systems. Glutathione is recognized as the great protector of the body, that fights off free-radicals and toxins that cause damage to the body.

A milestone clinical trial using Setria® Glutathione demonstrated that glutathione levels in the blood were increased via oral supplementation. These positive results using Setria® Glutathione were published in the esteemed European Journal of Nutrition. (*)

This unique six-month clinical trial, led by Professor John Richie, Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine, showed that for the first time daily oral supplementation of Setria® Glutathione increases body compartment stores of glutathione and boosts immune health.

Setria® Glutathione is being utilised to manufacture a variety of products around the world for:

  • Providing antioxidant protection
  • Promoting detoxification
  • Fortifying the immune system

Setria® Glutathione is pure, vegetarian, allergen-free and kosher.

Setria® Glutathione is manufactured through a patented fermentation process to GMP standards.
