It’s an exciting opportunity to introduce myself to those I have not yet had the chance to meet, since taking over as CEO in recent months.  I have stepped into a business with a 20 year history of caring for its clients, making quality raw materials accessible to the Australian pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, stockfeed and veterinary markets.  Trans Chem’s aim is to continue to build relationships, distributing a growing list of products in a timely fashion, providing a true service. 

In keeping with our mandate to bring you the latest in innovative products, Trans Chem 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. (*)

Setria® 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.

Professor John Richie, Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine, who has studied Glutathione for over 30 years said, “We know oxidative stress is an important factor in the aging process. Preventing oxidative stress is incredibly important for living a long and healthy life”.

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