How to maximize your Glutathione levels the natural way
The Glutathione Story is taken from Max International website.
Everyone knows about vitamins C and E, and why not? If you're feeling a little run down, or you think a cold is coming, you reach for vitamins and hope for the best. You expect these vitamins-both of which are antioxidants-and others can help your body perform at its best.
And yet the ally you really want fighting your cellular battles is glutathione, the antioxidant known as the body's master cell protector. It is essential for life-just like oxygen. Most likely, glutathione is just the most important antioxidant you've never heard of.
Scientists have long known of the critical role glutathione plays in protecting cells. Pub Med, maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, has more than 92,000 articles (50,000 more than on vitamin C) substantiating its health benefits.
It's time you learned more about glutathione.
What It Is
Glutathione is produced naturally in our cells if the required building blocks are available. As an antioxidant, glutathione is present in every cell in your body to protect them from free radicals and oxidative stress, which is caused by environmental pollutants, diet, stress, and even exercise, just to name a few.
Just as a car generates exhaust when it burns gasoline to produce energy, the body's natural processes generate "exhaust" as well-free radicals. These in turn can start chain reactions of oxidative stress that damage cells. Preventing these chain reactions is critical, as oxidative stress has been associated with more than 74 major diseases and disorders. Antioxidants halt these chain reactions. The reason glutathione is so important and effective is that it can subdue many more free radicals than its antioxidant cousins.
Why you need it
You don't have to be a scientist or an antioxidant guru to appreciate everything glutathione can do for you and your cells. As you increase your glutathione levels, you can experience multiple benefits because glutathione:
• Is present in every cell in the body.
• Is a primary cell detoxifier.
• Strengthens the immune system.
• Fights intracellular inflammation.
• Supports increased exercise.
• Slows the aging process.
So if your body produces glutathione and does all those great things for your cells, you don't have to worry, right? Not exactly. The downside of glutathione is that the production of it in our bodies slows as we age, leaving us vulnerable to oxidative stress and its associated ailments. If you deal with stress, a lack of sleep, or prolonged illness, you are likely utilizing glutathione at an accelerated rate, further aggravating the situation.
Creating a glutathione supplement is not the answer because the fragile tripeptide structure of glutathione makes surviving the digestive tract a near impossibility.
The key to the glutathione dilemma is to give the body what it needs to produce glutathione, and Max International has the know-how to do it. Our breakthroughs are powered by decades of research, including that conducted by a renowned medicinal chemist, Dr. Herb Nagasawa. RiboCeine™, a patent-pending compound, is his elegant solution to the glutathione quandary.
Max International is committed to being the global leader in understanding how the body produces glutathione and how to develop products that enhance this process. Everyone needs the benefits of glutathione in their life, and we will never surrender our position as the glutathione experts.
