RiboCeine™ - The Science behind Specialized Glutathione Support
Max International provides several products designed to enhance your quality of life. It does this by providing your body with the building blocks needed to produce the most powerful antioxidant your body can produce, called glutathione. Developed by renowned research scientist and medicinal chemist Dr. Herbert Nagasawa, RiboCeine™ is the fruit of his many years of research into how to make people like you healthier and happier.
RiboCeine produces higher amounts of Glutathione in the body.
Why is this a good thing?
It's because glutathione is one of the most versatile, robust substances your body can produce. Your intestinal tract uses glutathione to help eliminate the many toxins you ingest before they reach the rest of your body. Your liver uses glutathione as part of the "detergent" it creates to detoxify your blood. Your eyes and skin use glutathione to protect against harmful UV rays and radiation.
Glutathione also helps your body defend against oxidation. Oxidation directly harms the cells inside your body and has been associated with a multitude of serious illnesses. RiboCeine ensures all of these functions are able to be carried out by providing the precursor nutrients required to produce the amount of glutathione it needs. These precursor nutrients are effective in their own right and are found in many healthy foods already.
Ribose is a sugar your body produces. Taking it by mouth is shown to be effective for improving how the heart handles low blood flow in coronary artery disease patients and has shown enormous potential in treating other heart conditions. It is also used by athletes and those who exercise regularly to enhance performance and endurance. Ribose also supplies the cells with the fuel they need, producing a substance called ATP.
The key to producing Glutathione lies with cysteine
However, cysteine is a far more delicate substance than most. Cysteine is an amino acid and is one of 20 substances that contributes to the construction of proteins throughout the body, making it a key component of all living things. It is already in high demand before it even enters your body, as it plays a role in repelling such serious ailments as acetaminophen poisoning, angina and even the flu when taken as part of a supplement like RiboCeine.
Glutathione is the crown jewel of antioxidants, however. Over 100,000 scientific studies have been performed on the vast array of functions glutathione carries out. These studies can be found on PubMed, the U.S. Government's official medical research library. It is capable of removing many external toxins from the body including mold, phthalates and mercury. By repairing cells damaged by free radicals it can slow the aging process, repair injured tissue and repair, heal, and supply the cells in your body with what they need for optimal performance. You lose 10% to 15% of this precious antioxidant every 10 years, which makes maintaining or increasing glutathione levels essential.
To explain how Max International's revolutionary RiboCeine works, think of it like this. When you want to bake a cake, you need flour, sugar, eggs and other ingredients. The problem is, you do not have or make many of these ingredients at home. What do you do? You get them from an outside source, a supermarket. Your body is in the same position. In order to build many of the chemicals your body needs to function, it need components from outside of it that are usually acquired from eating healthy foods. In the case of our body, its cake is the master antioxidant, glutathione.
Glutathione is produced by the body, but only as long as it has the ingredients it needs to make it. To get these ingredients, one usually has to eat healthy foods. One such ingredient, called cysteine, is very delicate and often breaks up before it can be absorbed. Could you imagine coming home from the store and breaking all of your eggs on the way? No eggs, no cake. No cysteine, no glutathione. This then makes the logic behind RiboCeine simple.
Imagine bringing those delicate eggs home in a specially-designed steel case rather than a simple plastic bag. That is what RiboCeine does for cysteine, but RiboCeine's secondary component, ribose, is the steel case. With the eggs safe and sound, you can finally bake that cake. With the cysteine safe and sound thanks to the ribose, your body can finally make glutathione and get your body up and running better than ever.
While it sounds like a simple concept, Dr. Nagasawa spent many years making this idea a reality. During the course of his forty years of research, he became a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Toxicology at the University of Minnesota, Senior Career Research Scientist for the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Minneapolis and Senior Editor of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, among other honors. He is a respected and prolific researcher with 170 published, peer-reviewed clinical studies to his name.
To ensure his science is and remains sound, he recruited the help of many respected colleagues in the field, forming Max International's Medical Board from fifteen greatly respected scientists and doctors. They come from many backgrounds, including everything from hematology to pediatrics and everything in between. This board is made up of doctors hailing from many different places, from all across America to the Philippines.
With firm backing from reputable doctors and organizations as well as sound, logical science, RiboCeine just makes sense. There is literally no disadvantage in having more glutathione in your body. With the most powerful antioxidant your body is capable of producing, your body will recover more quickly when it is injured or sick and perform at its best when it is healthy.
