Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 in Cellgevity, Ingredients, Max N-Fuze, MAXGXL, MaxONE | 0 comments

Max International is rolling out some new product packaging . Among the first products to ship with the new designs are MaxOne and Max N-Fuze.  There’s new packaging on the way for Cellgevity as well. And there’s other changes afoot! If you’re a MaxGXl Sport user – don’t panic but Max is discontinuing that product because- in response to customer feedback they are moving all nutritional products to vegi-caps (which was the only product difference between MaxGXL and MaxGXL Sport). So now – Max GXL, MaxONE and Cellgevity will all come in vegi-caps.   I’ll get the product images on this site up to date as soon as Max International releases the new (and improved)...

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Glutathione

Posted by on Dec 19, 2014 in Cellgevity, MAXGXL, MaxONE | 0 comments

This is not an original post. It’s a reprint of a talk/presentation given by Dr Daria Davidson on chronic fatigue and the very important impact of glutathione on it.  Yes, it’s a little on the long side, but this is terrific information and if you’re suffering from Chronic fatigue syndrome, worth every word. The original of this article is a few years old and talks quite a bit about MAXGXL which is an outstanding product. But since this time Max has developed new products to support your glutathione, namely MaxONE and Cellgevity. So don’t hesitate to take a look at all three products before you make a choice about which one is right for you. For a quick overview of the differences, you can call our order desk at 1 289 240 7408- We’re working on a new post that compares the products and I’ll drop the link in here when it’s done….. now – onto the wisdom of Dr Davidson.   Lets look at glutathione for individuals with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome… Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a very, very complicated issue. As a matter of fact it’s kind of fascinating because who knows when it actually really became something that we had acknowledged was an issue for a long period of time, we found people with unusual constellations of symptoms, many times the thought was this person just does not want to work or there is a psychiatric cause for it and I know people who suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome before we identified it really suffered because they were oftentimes ignored by their health professionals and often also takes many years to make the diagnosis which adds to some additional frustration. Okay what is glutathione and how does it help with CFS? Glutathione provides many roles inside every cell in your body including helping keep free radicals under control – it’s called oxidation reduction balance, the medical word for that is redox, it affects everything inside the cell including the rate of biochemical reactions inside the cell. Glutathione also cleans up many different free radicals inside the cell. It also performs phase 2 detoxification of heavy metals in the liver, don’t worry about what I mean by phase 2, this phase 2 happens in the liver, heavy metals such as mercury, it also detoxifies organo-phosphate pesticides, chlorinated hydro-carbon solvents, different kinds of hormones that may be in excessive amounts, different foreign bodies, endogenous, which means toxins that are actually created inside of our own bodies as well as things like Tylenol. So phase 2 detoxification is highly dependent on glutathione, it does many, many other things as well. Where is glutathione made in the body? It’s made inside every single cell but the liver makes extra and that extra glutathione is transported outside of the liver cells so there is some glutathione floating around outside of cells, although 99% of glutathione occurs inside of the cell. This is beginning to look a glutathione depletion and chronic fatigue syndrome so I am looking at just a quick review, and I’ll give you some of the years of these studies. First of all, glutathione depletion was first suggested for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 1997. In 1999, another study found that all of their Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients universally had low glutathione levels. Another study published in 2000 and this is kind of interesting this is a side-note but you’ll find this fascinating, this particular study found that patients could be divided statistically into two distinct groups. One having elevated red blood cell glutathione relative to help control people and the other having very, very low glutathione levels in their red blood cells. People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have low magnesium and that if they have low glutathione in addition, the more difficult it is to help them with supplemental magnesium. When you look at the general population, there are many different factors that will decrease intra cellular glutathione concentrations. First of all, you may not make enough of it, maybe just genetically you don’t make as much as glutathione as somebody else...

Beautiful Skin is More than Skin Deep

Posted by on May 31, 2012 in Antioxidants, Diseases of Aging, General Health Information, MAXGXL, Natural Health | 0 comments

The health of our skin can show us a lot about the wellness of our complete body. We need to understand how to examine the message and how to pay attention, because lovely skin is a good indicator of healthy amounts of essential nutrients. For instance, skin hydration depends on glucosamine just as joint hydration does. So, dried up skin most likely means dried joints. Skin that is simply damaged indicates fast aging, which probably signifies fast aging of our circulatory system. Additionally, skin that is easily burned from the sun may point out that our essential fatty acid (EFA) and antioxidant reserves are low which means other tissues that rely on antioxidants and EFA for safety may also be at risk. You can improve your low antioxidant reserves and specificallyincrease your glutathione with MAXGXL Skin has a foundation of healthy fats. Many of the topical emollients we put on our skin are some kind of fat. Having said that, we don’t actually absorb fats very efficiently through our skin. The very best way to create a healthy foundation for your skin is to supplement with essential fatty acids. Vitamin D from fish oil and Vitamin E, one of the principal fat soluble network antioxidants are excellent choices to start. Sunlight and Vitamin D The increasing occurrence of diabetes, osteoporosis and certain cancers could be explained partly through a lack of Vitamin D. A boost in insomnia and seasonal depression tells us that we are not getting adequate early morning sun. We require more daylight. Now, how will we make it safe? Acknowledge the requirement for sun and the need for caution. Plan your sun time so that you maximize the benefits while minimizing the dangers. For example, get your sunlight early in the day. Early morning sunlight does not have the excessive ultra-violet intensity that noon sun has. So, take a 20-minute walk in the early part of the day with your skin uncovered to sunlight. This will give you the benefits without the risks of over-exposure. Or, take a twenty-minute walk late in the day with your skin exposed to sunlight. There are less UV rays in the evening than at noon, though more than in the morning. This will have a less pronounced effect but will nevertheless supply many of the same advantages. Don’t expose your skin to midday sun for extended periods of time. Wear clothes that protect most of your skin and include a sun hat that offers shade for your face and ears. Selected nutrients are helpful to protect against sun damage: Essential fatty acids work with Vitamin D in the dermis to protect against unsafe radiation. Vitamin C neutralizes the problem of oxidative stress. Antioxidants, such as those found in berries and superfruits used to make the health drink AIO with AC-11 (from from Uncaria) can help protect against DNA damage from radiation. Tell me about sunscreen Sunscreen is a very hot topic, but using it is entirely up to you. Human beings have been living outdoors for thousands of years without serious danger from sun exposure. The boost in skin cancer danger came about as a combination of seriously polluted air, a minimal antioxidant/nutrient diet and the 40-year sunning craze that followed the second world war. We didn’t do that in the past. More people today die of cancer related to Vitamin D deficiency than of skin cancer caused by sunburn. Again, get some morning and evening sunlight for your health, by no means get a sunburn and keep your skin protected when you are exposed to midday sun. No mad dogs or Englishmen...

About Network Antioxidants

Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Antioxidants, Cardio Health, Cellgevity, Diseases of Aging, General Health Information, Glutathione, Inflammation, MAXGXL, Nutrition | 0 comments

Antioxidants are our body’s major protection against the injury triggered by free radicals which contribute to many chronic inflammatory and degenerative ailments. Oxy radicals are the root cause of premature aging. Among all the antioxidants, a group of five are identified as Network Antioxidants. This group of both water and fat soluble antioxidants work together to help your cells and do the job together to support each other. When an antioxidant contributes an electron to restore a free radical, it actually becomes one, but a benign one without the potential to perpetuate the chain reaction. Unfortunately, when they are oxidized, they’re also not able to function effectively. But, what is special about the network antioxidants is that are able to help to regenerate each other and carry on the cycle of searching out and correcting free radicals. Even though they perform together, the network antioxidants fulfill diverse tasks. The fat soluble ones, specifically Vitamin E and CoQ-10 protect the fatty cell membrane and the cell mitochondria, and the water soluble antioxidants, Vitamin C and Glutathione protect the center of the cell. ALA – Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique in that it is both fat and water soluble. Vitamin C is the link which bridges the fat soluble and water soluble antioxidants in the network and is largely responsible for recharging Vitamin E when it becomes oxidized. Vitamin E is closely aligned with heart attack prevention, because it’s the only antioxidant that can reach fatty parts of the cell that are not accessible to the rest of the network. It’s really not a single compound but is instead a family of fat soluble alcohols. CoEnzymeQ-10 or CoQ-10 is found in each your cells, where it is concentrated in the mitochondria, the component of your cell that generates energy. Mitochondria are vulnerable to free radical damage which has been evidenced as a decline of energy as we age. Additionally, CoQ-10 works in the regeneration of Vitamins C, E and Glutathione Glutathione, popularly regarded as the Body’s Master antioxidant is continually circulating through your cells, repairing your immune cells and cleaning cellular waste from your body. It supports the rejuvenation of all of the remaining network antioxidants. Raising your glutathione levels helps protect you from several inflammatory conditions, autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma and others. Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique among the Network Antioxidants in that it is both fat and water soluable and can support both the fatty membrane and water based interior of the cells. It is also uniquely capable of repairing itself and notably can regenerate the other network antioxidants including glutathione. It helps to stop muscle damage during strenuous workouts. Like glutathione and CoEnzyme Q-10, ALA is produced by your body, but the production capacity decreases appreciably as we...

ALA – About Alpha Lipoic Acid

ALA – About Alpha Lipoic Acid

Available in every single cell of the body – much like glutatione – alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an antioxidant that helps your cells transform glucose into energy. Unlike antioxidants like Vitamin C which can exclusively work in water or vitamin E which only works in fat , ALA operates in both water and fat. It can work anyplace in your body. Like other antioxidants, ALA neutralizes free radicals -metabolic waste – from your cells before they grow to be crowded and toxic from a build up of waste. In contrast to most other antioxidants, Alpha lipoic Acid can help to replenish other antioxidants once they have collected the odd electrons and renders them capable to continue to neutralize more free radicals. ALA is also used as an abbreviation for Alpha Linolenic Acid which is an omega-3 fatty acid, connected with heart health, but this is not the same as Alpha lipoic acid – also known as Lipoic Acid. Several studies have indicated that ALA may possibly be able to help lessen levels of blood sugar and combined with it’s antioxidant properties, ALA might be valuable to people suffering from diabetic peripheral neuropathy, relieving some of the discomfort brought about by nerve damage. Researchers are studying alpha lipoic acid to measure its effectiveness against glaucoma although they are yet to acquire sufficient data, but because it can pass very easily to the brain, it is possible that ALA may well be useful as a protection against brain and nerve tissue damage. ALA is currently being looked at as a potential treatment for stroke and other brain problems with root causes based on free radical damage. Dementia is one such condition. ALA is an ingredient in both MaxGXL and Cellgevity, both of which are available at Whole Earth...

A Spotlight on Vitamin C and Your Health

Posted by on May 15, 2012 in Antioxidants, Cellgevity, General Health Information, Glutathione, MAXGXL, Natural Health, Nutrition | 0 comments

Every person has heard of vitamin C (a.k.a. ascorbic acid (AA) also known as dehydroascorbic DHAA in its oxidized state). In fact, vitamin C is virtually a catch all name for any compounds that exhibit the same biologic activity as AA. It’s importance was originally recognized in 1747 when James Lind observed that men could be cured of scurvy if offered oranges and lemons. It was a lifesaving breakthrough for sailors. The expression “Limey” caught on fairly quickly as a nickname for the sailors in His Majesty’s Royal Navy. Vitamin C is the most important and readily available water soluable antioxidant within the human body. The fact that it is water soluable means that it can neutralize free radicals before they reach the cellular membrane layer. The relationship between Ascorbic Acid and glutathione– the body’s master antioxidant is unique. Vitamin C reduces glutathione back to its active form. Once reduced, glutathione will revitalize vitamin C from its DHAA or oxidized state. The symbioitic relationship explains why Vitamin C is an ingredient in Cellgevity, available from Whole Earth Health Vitamin C is vital for the creation of collagen. It is also needed in the development of noropinephrine and serotonin. Ascorbic Acid may possibly also have some anti-clotting and blood flow advancement components by triggering the release within the body of Nitric Oxide, which is the most likely reason that Vitamin C is also a key ingredient in the supplement Pro-Argi9-Plus. (Call 1 866 993 6243 for more info) Vitamin C is stored in both the tissues and blood in our bodies. The adrenal and pituitary glands, and lens of the eye include the highest concentrations of vitamin C inside of your body. Vitamin C is one of the thirteen essential vitamins. The term “essential” is often confused. An essential vitamin is not necessarily more important than another vitamin, rather it’s one that must come from our food since we are unable to manufacture it within the...
