Adroit Biomed Limited has through its social initiative, “IndiaKilmmuneNiti” been aiming to strengthen immunity for every citizen in India and make them aware of the significance of boosting immunity among fellow Indians. As Adroit Biomed envisages becoming a center of excellence, scientists and medical professionals are being given a platform for exchange of ideas, hold discussions, engage in debates and put forth their observations as well as explorations arrived at through research concerning immunity boosting potential of Glutathione, referred to as the wonder molecule. At a webinar held recently to unravel the efficacy of Glutathione, many aspects that were considered to be interesting were a part of discussions by the most coveted national and international doctors’ and researchers’ panel. The panelists that were part of the discussions were Dr. John Richie (Professor, Department of Pharmacology, Penn State Cancer Institute, USA), Dr. Sadhana Sathaye, (Professor, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences Institute of Chemical Technology), Dr. Girish C. Rajadhyaksha from T.N. Medical College and Dr. Farida Modi (Medical Director, Dermacare Skin Aesthetics and Laser Centre). The campaign was inaugurated by Mr. Suresh Prabhu, member of Rajya Sabha and India’s Sherpa to the G20. This is seen as being a tireless effort by Adroit Biomed, aimed at ensuring India’s immune health.

All of these distinguished guests provided innumerable medicinal benefits of Glutathione, whether it is associated with enhancing immunity or in other cases such as reduction of ageing, therapeutic uses, anti-cancer, diabetes control, geriatric among others. This is the primary reason for the steady increase in demand of Glutathione. Glutathione is one such nutraceutical that has been making a rapid growth and is also referred to as master antioxidant with innumerable benefits.

Glutathione has several uses and is also used for treating a number of stress-related and life-threatening diseases. Dr. John Richie had been speaking on the role of Glutathione with regard to the same, wherein he stated that “A condition of increased oxidant exposure is known as oxidative stress. It occurs when oxidant exposure exceeds antioxidant defenses.  Glutathione (GSH) is a multifunctional and ubiquitous molecule that works as an antioxidant, and also possesses numerous functions such as redox regulation, DNA repair, immune function and detoxifying xenobiotic and drugs. GSH depletion is common with aging, smoking, consumption of alcohol, improper diet and other diseases and oral GSH supplementation may be an effective means for enhancing GSH and thus, protecting against oxidative stress-related diseases. Active GSH primes white cells such as natural killer and T cells, your body’s front-line infection fighters. GSH-enhanced T cells are able to produce more infection-fighting substances.”

Additionally, Dr. Sadhana Sathaye, who had undertaken research on an extensive basis on degenerative disorders and many other conditions such as oxidative stress, Alzheimer’s and diabetic diseases stated that “The role of glutathione in your bodily function cannot be understated. Healthy levels of glutathione provides some potent health benefits including, neuroprotective, hepatoprotective and anti-aging properties. Glutathione helps your immune system to stay strong and ready to fight infections.”

In addition to that, there is the extensive usage of Glutathione as a skin-enhancing and anti-aging agent. If not concerned directly with wrinkles but many are demanding a flawless and youthful skin. Science states that glutathione is an effective answer. Another panelist and eminent skin specialist Dr. Farida Modi stated that “Glutathione not only decreases the melanin in your skin, but it has also been found to decrease wrinkles and increase skin elasticity. Glutathione works on the skin pigment production by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in making melanin. Also, Glutathione is great at fighting chronic inflammation” thereby reinforcing its skin rejuvenating benefits. Based on her clinical experience, Dr. Modi stated that Glutathione supplementations are generally tolerated.

Among other eminent panelists, Dr. Rajadhyaksha, who has been on the war front all through this pandemic, stressed on the immunity aspects. He stated that “Many health problems appear due to weak immunity and especially in geriatric patients it is a critical issue. Many diseases such as HIV, cancer, diabetes etc. also increase the oxidative stress and weaken the immune system and hence correcting the immune system is very important for fighting against infections.” The session was moderated by Dr. Anish Desai, MD (Director- Strategic Medical Affair at Adroit Biomed Ltd). The use of Glutathione can certainly be seen by all and its popularity can only be expected to be further enhanced over time. So be it for enhancing immunity, reducing melanin in the skin, Glutathione is seemingly effective.

The nutraceuticals market alone is predicted to double its share to USD 18 bn in India by 2025. This estimation of figures by researchers had not taken COVID 19 pandemic into consideration. The virus has further increased the awareness of having a strong immunity manifold, not only among the classes but also among the masses. Speaking on the market growth of Glutathione, Mr. Sushant Raorane (Co-Founder-Director Adroit Biomed Ltd) stated that “The relentless effort to examine the efficacy of Glutathione globally in other areas of prophylactic and therapeutic will boost the sales, mature the market and make the Indian healthcare system absorb it. It would be therefore easy to say that in the recent COVID scenario and in the post COVID era when health immunity would be paramount, the preventive healthcare overall and consumption of health immunity supplements specifically would be further triggered. I can safely say by another 10-15% to an already growing market. Our endeavor #IndiaKiImmuneNiti is one such step to make Indian consumers aware of a host of innovative solutions available to ensure strong immune health.”
