So you know you need to take some sort of supplement. And everyone is always talking about how fabulous their antioxidant is . So how do you know which one is actually worth your money.
Let me share some of what I have learned over the past 15 years of knowing some of the sharpest scientific and medical minds in the country (hopefully I absorbed some wisdom purely by osmosis). I have also managed to raise three children with ZERO visits to the doctor for illness.
Here is a little perspective. Your body produces 4 endogenous (meaning your body makes them) antioxidants. They are the most important antioxidants known. Of these Glutathione is the most important. The other three are: Superoxide dismutase (SOD), Alpha lipoic acid (ALA), and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).When an antioxidant supplement works it typically produces results by indirectly increasing 1 or these 4 endogenous antioxidants.
So how do you see through all the massive amount of marketing hype on which supplement is best for your body?
First do not accept testimonials exclusively as a measurement of product effectiveness. Dramatic changes in health can be realized by simply drinking more water.
Second do not accept “scientific proof” that focuses on raw ingredients of a product instead of the product itself. Raw ingredients are very sensitive to processing. The finished product may have nothing to do with the cool research. This is what I call “borrowed science.”
Also do not be fooled by high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) numbers. This is a score thrown around by many marketers. What they don’t tell you is that ORAC test gives false numbers for many berries and the original test only scores for water soluble areas of the cell. Also the process of combining raw ingredients that are good separate can produce a product that actually produces free radical damage.
Here is an example of a product that does everything wrong.
Third look for products that have studies showing that the product works in humans using a double blind study.
Here is an example. http://www.protandim.com/pdf/ProtandimFRBMpaperJan152006.pdf
Protandim shows that it can increase two of your bodies antioxidants SOD by 30% and Catalse by 54% in 120 days and decrease a measurement of aging by 40%. Pretty good stuff.
So how does a product like MAX GXL compare? MAX GXL gets your body to increase its production of Glutathione.
It is important to understand that Glutathione is the most important of your bodies endogenous antioxidants. So an increase in Glutathione is more important that an increase in SOD etc.
In this study http://mxl.myvoffice.com/pdf/en/glutathione_study.pdf
MAX GXL increased Glutathione levels inside the cells by almost 300% in 60 days as well as decreasing your bodies main cause or contributor to any disease associated with aging (inflammation) by 60% as well as increasing 2 important biological hormonal markers of youth and vitality by 40 and 46%. (important note: GXL does not contain glutathione but instead gets your body to produce it)
So the results? Half the time and almost 600 percent better results. Any questions?
