A very exciting product has been brought to market to support your own production of glutathione. In case you haven’t heard of Glutathione, it offers several important benefits for your health including fortifying your immune system, cleansing toxic substances from your systems , helping to combat inflammation and removing oxy- radicals.
Oxy- radicals are a critical issue because the stress that free radicals create in your body has been linked to over 74 major health problems and illnesses and the main tool we each possess to help prevent the damage caused by oxidative stress is Antioxidants. Antioxidants are elements that can stop the multiplication of free radicals, which left alone can lead to an ongoing chain reaction of damaged molecules that eventually destroy the cells and the organs in your body . Of all the antioxidants that exist , one of them does a superior job of protecting your cells against free radicals and that antioxidant is Glutathione.
Glutathione is naturally manufactured in your body. Sadly , as we age, it slows the production of glutathione and -when you need it most, your Glutathione levels decline . It would be an easy thing to correct if you could simply take Glutathione supplements , but that is not the case . Oral glutathione supplements can’t work , because as they pass through your stomach , the glutathione is ruined by your gastric juices and is not readily absorbed into the bloodstream.
What works better is to supplement with glutathione precursors. These are the necessary materials that a body uses to produce glutathione on its own . By providing your body with an added source of the ingredients it requires , serum and liver glutathione concentrations are boosted naturally – and significantly . Up until now the best product that I know of to support glutathione levels is MAX GXL from Max International. However, it seems that Max International has taken it one step further with the introduction of a new Glutathione precursor called ellgevity.
Cellgevity- available at WholeEarthHealth includes a new compound called RiboCeine, which has been featured prominently in MAX ATP (I’ll write about ATP later ). RiboCeine gets its name from D-Ribose – a very basic version of sugar that supports the production of ATP and L-Cysteine, perhaps the most important materials from which we make glutathione. While MAXGXL uses a blend of L Glutamine and NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), Cellgevity uses RiboCeine, because it is better able to protect the Cysteine in its journey through the stomach and get more to the cells, resulting in 300% more glutathione in the liver .
