What is ATP?

Posted by on Nov 26, 2014 in MaxATP | 0 comments

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a naturally produced organic compound that’s made up of three different phosphate groups and adenosine (which includes ribose- a sugar). ATP is an abundant source of chemical energy which is stored in the phospate bound in it. When these bonds are broken the energy is released to become what is described and the currency that funds your metabolisms. ATP is produced in the mitochondria over every human cell via celluar respiration. Plants produce ATP in the chloroplasts through the process – photosynthesis. As long as lots of ATP is present in your cells, your energy levels can be sustained and your cellular tissues will function properly. However, as with so many other things, as we age, our bodies become much less efficient at producing ATP. Our energy levels begin to decline and our cells do not function as effectively. It’s also useful to note, that while ATP stokes the fires of our metabolic processes at the cellular level, it also produces some waste products (just like the ashes in a fireplace) which left alone will accumulate in the cell and actually damage the mitochondria which produce it. So, the process which produces our energy contains within it, the seeds of it’s own destruction. It’s all part of aging which may be inevitable, but there’s no reason to accept it prematurely. One substance that can help protect cellular mitochondria, from the waste it produces, is Glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant. Click on the Logo to return to the purchase...

Cellgevity Ingredients

Posted by on Nov 10, 2014 in Cellgevity | 0 comments

More than Ingredients Make Cellgevity Unique It’s more than the combination of ingredients that make Cellgevity unique. Its the reason why these ingredients have been used.  Other glutathione precursors can help boost your body’s level of glutathione but as far as I know, it’s only Cellgevity that includes extra ingredients to support glutathione’s ability to work effectively in your body. Ingredients   RiboCeine RiboCeine is the subject of twenty peer-reviewed published, scientific studies funded by the National Institutes of Health and others. Developed by Herbert T. Nagasawa, Ph.D.,RiboCeine has demonstrated that it can effectively deliver cysteine to the cells and enable them to produce the optimal levels of glutathione. Based on a combination of two nutrients that are naturally found in the human body – Ribose and Cysteine, RiboCeine is activated by the body’s cells to release On Demand and effectively deliver the Cysteine necessary for optimal glutathione production, directly to your cells. RiboCeine has outperformed every other means of glutathione enhancement against which it has been tested.  Read More ALA-Alpha Lipoic Acid Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant known to combat various forms of oxidative stress and to recycle other antioxidants. Lipoic acid is a naturally produced in the body and used by both animals and plants. Together with glutathione, they protect the fat and water portions of the cells from different types of free radicals. As a nutritional supplement, Alpha Lipoic Acid seems to boost insulin sensitivity, and could  be particularly helpful in addressing metabolic syndrome.  It also acts with B vitamins to aid in the creation of energy from the proteins, carbohydrates and fats we eat. ALA has been looked at in connection with the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, liver ailments and glaucoma. It might even help to improve memory because of its protective effects on brain and nerve tissue.   Broccoli Seed Extract For up to 72 hours, the catalytic effect created by  Broccoli Seed Extract (sulforaphane glucosinolate) will boost the activity of antioxidants in your body. Broccoli seed extract also protects against electrophiles which can damage DNA and helps cells neutralize toxins and carcinogens which are then ejected from your cells.  It also helps to increase and restore glutathione levels in your body and activates the antioxidant enzymes used in the Phase II detoxification pathway   Curcumin Curcumin is better known to most people as Turmeric Root Extract. Turmeric is that wonderfully pungent, brilliantly yellow spice that imparts its distinctive color to much Indian cusine (and also your white blouse if you’re not more careful than I was!)  More importantly though, Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight damage caused by free radicals and is also well known to help reduce inflammation. Supporting the work of the broccoli seed extract also in Cellgevity, turmeric root extract also helps to generate the Phase II enzymes that support what it known as the glutathione detoxification pathway. Resveratrol Much has been written about resveratrol. ( I, for one, used it as a joking excuse for my wine consumption- until I found out that it didn’t truly extend to white wine). Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant found in grape skins and present in red and white wine, although using wine as your sole source of resveratrol  will cause more harm than good. In supplement form however, resveratrol is an antioxidant with properties that protect your cardio vascular system. Vitamin C Everyone is familiar with Vitamin C and many of its benefits are well known.  What isn’t well known though is that Vitamin C is among the Network Antioxidants, which probably explains why it is in Cellgevity. Most antioxidants become useless after they have done their job and neutralized a free (oxy) radical, but the network antioxidants have the ability to recycle or rejuvinate each other. Quercetin Quercetin is a flavonoid antioxidant. Flavonoids are an exceptional group of phytonutrients that belong to the category of polyphenols. They’re best known for their rich diversity of  pigments (including the rich blues of blueberries and deep reds of raspberries).  Flavonoids like Quercetin are valued for their antioxidant and...

Why is Cellgevity Special

Posted by on Nov 9, 2014 in Cellgevity | 0 comments

What Makes Cellgevity Unique? Cellgevity is your best choice to help defend your body from the never ending attacks  from chemical toxins and free radicals but supporting your body’s own production of the Master Antioxidant – Glutathione- and supporting the Glutathione Network   Free radicals create oxidative stress which leads to cellular inflammation and damage which many scientists feel is a root cause of premature aging.  By providing your body with the compound called RiboCeine – a scientific breakthrough and adding in 11 other ingredients working together, Cellgevity is Max Internationals most advanced product to  support your bodys development of Glutathione. It is the only product that combines these scientifically proven ingredients. Glutathione While many people have never heard of glutathione before, it is well known in the science and medical fields. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that your body produces very well when you’re younger but your production falls off as you age.  And that’s a problem because glutathione plays a roll to protect all the cells in your body from the damages caused by free radicals and the chain reaction of damage they can set off in the cells.  What this damage leads to is chronically inflamed condition in your cells that will eventually damage the organs and lead to what are considered to the many of the chronic diseases of aging – like arthritis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimers.  What can glutathione do? It can boost your energy levels, increase your stamina, improve your sleep, reduce inflammation, increase your mental focus, help you recover more quickly from exercise, reduce joint pain and live a longer, better life. Cellgevity is Unique Cellgevity is Max Internationals most effective anti-aging supplement Only Cellgevity combines RiboCeine with 13 other proven ingredients that form a synergistic combination to provide the best glutathione support Cellgevity is not a glutathione supplement. Oral glutathione supplements are generally ineffective. Instead, Cellgevity is a precursor – a supplement that provides your body with a powerful combination of nutritional ingredients to help it increase your glutathione production to. Cellgevity contains a source of curcumin (turmeric root extract) proven as up to 29% more bioavailable than common sources Buy  Cellgevity...

Why Phone for the Best Price?

Posted by on Nov 8, 2014 in Cellgevity | 0 comments

This is why we ask you to pick up the phone and call 1 866 993 6243 to order Cellgevity/MAX ATP/Max One and MaxGXL at the best price. As a Max International Distributor we are obligated to honor the restrictions that control the advertised price. If you see Max Products advertised anywhere online for less than the Loyalty Prices plus shipping and tax, that advertiser is probably NOT a registered product distributor.  From time to time we offer short specials above and beyond those offered by Max (at our own expense).  For example should you order 4 bottles or more, we’ll pay for your shipping (but you’ll have to ask for it) When you order over the phone we eliminate a layer of credit card fees. None of the online shopping carts are completely up-to-date with all of the approved pricing Specials. And that’s we we urge you to phone. PS! If you see Cellgevity and other Max Products sold directly on eBay, Amazon, Kijiji – you are probably not buying from a legitimate distributor and Max International does not allow its distributors to sell on these sites. Why do you care if your supplier is a legitimate distributor?  Because when you buy through a legitimate distributor you are guaranteed a product that is shipped directly from the manufacturer, complete with their guarantees of product quality, freshness (yes it matters) credit card security and their satisfaction guarantee. Canadian customers are assured that product will be shipped to you without duty, brokerage or extra taxes added on when you receive delivery Finally, fraud on the internet is a huge problem for both buyers and sellers. It is not uncommon for criminals to purchase products with stolen credit cards and the offer them for sale online at discount prices. Ethics aside, do you really want to give your credit card information to a company who might be buying their product with stolen credit cards?  Think about it carefully before you buy from just anyone.      ...

Causes of Parkinson’s Disease

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 in Cognitive functioning, Diseases of Aging, General Health Information, Glutathione, MaxONE | 0 comments

Parkinson’s disease is brought about by the decrease of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which manages mobility and many other neurological functions. Symptoms include the loss of control of motor functions, which leads to shaking, balance troubles, and stiffness. It’s also been understood for greater than TWENTY years that the mid brain area of patients experiencing Parkinsons Disease demonstrate a 40-50 % decline in total glutathione levels. Glutathione, the body’s Master Antioxidant makes a contribution in enabling the body minimize oxidative stress and long term inflammation it creates. “Prolonged exposure to chemicals considerably raises one’s risk of developing Parkinson’s disease,” Dr. goes on to say. “There’s a famous saying, which is essentially a cliché that heredity loads the gun and environment pulls the trigger. That looks true with Parkinson’s and pesticides. In addition to Dr. Bronstein’s work, a new study released by Italian scientists in the journal of Neurology concluded that prolonged exposure to herbicides and pesticides boosts risk of Parkinson’s by thirty three to 80 percent. Over 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease each year, and experts state it’s progressively more clear that the chemicals used in farming are contributing to many of the problems. “Pesticides are easily the major environmental Parkinson’s disease risk factor,” says Jeff Bronstein, M.D., a professor of neurology at UCLA and director of the institution’s Movement Disorders Program. The Dirty Dozen. Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) releases its “Dirty Dozen” selection of the very most chemical-laden produce. It also delivers its “Clean 15” list of the fruit and vegetables most unlikely to have major amounts of pesticides. The “Dirty Dozen” are apples, celery, grapes, peaches, strawberries, spinach, bell peppers,imported nectarines, cucumbers, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and hot peppers. The EWG also specified concerns about kale, collard greens, and summer squash. The “Clean 15” are onions, pineapples, avocados, cabbage, frozen peas, papayas, mangoes,asparagus, eggplant, kiwi, grapefruit, corn, cantaloupe, sweet potatoes, and mushrooms. Talking about Glutathione and Parkinson’s Disease. The glutathione declines observed earlier in this article are one of the earliest potential indicators in the pre-symptomatic stages of Parkinson’s Disease. Oxidative harm to lipids, protein and DNA in the mind of Parkinson’s Disease patients is consistent with the reduction of the antioxidant functions provided by GSH. It is not out of the ordinary for the intellect to become influenced by a downturn of glutathione levels given that the brain utilizes a big percentage of the total oxygen used by our body. The metabolic activities that use oxygen create free radicals as a by-product. MaxONE – a glutathione precursor offers an opportunity to improve your glutathione levels and help fight oxidative...
