Finding balance with immune and brain health becomes more important as humans age. That’s the message Kyowa’s Oksana Ritchie shared with Food Matters Live 2017 attendees in London last month. Ritchie’s presentation, “The Power of Balance: Supporting immune and brain health with Glutathione and Citicoline for the 40-60 age groups,” was part of the “Taking Care – Cradle to Grave” track sponsored by Intertek, a multinational inspection, product testing and certification company headquartered in London. Ritchie highlighted the extensive scientific research behind these ingredients. She also updated conference goers on regulatory status of both ingredients and where they can be found.
“A healthy diet and exercise are sometimes not always enough to ensure healthy aging because of the environmental stressors that we have. As we grow older it becomes harder for our bodies to maintain stores of key components like Citicoline for brain function and Glutathione for a strong immune defense,” said Ritchie, Kyowa Hakko Europe marketing manager.
Kyowa Hakko offers Setria® L-Glutathione, a well-studied and unique form of L-Glutathione that is stable when exposed to stomach acid for enhanced absorption. Setria® provides intracellular antioxidant support, benefits cellular detoxification, and boosts a healthy immune response.*
For brain health, Kyowa’s Cognizin® Citicoline—a branded form of the brain health nutrient citicoline—provides vital nutrients that help the brain stimulate electronic impulses, maintain healthy neurons and protect them from free radicals.*
