CellgevityTM provides health and wellness support by providing the breakthrough compound RiboCeineTM and 12 other synergistic ingredients. Cellgevity supports the production and function of Glutathione, including supporting the removal of harmful toxins and neutralizing free radical damage.
• Cellgevity is a synergistic blend of RiboCeine combined with twelve additional ingredients to form Max International’s most effective health supplement.*
• RiboCeine has significantly outperformed all other means of Glutathione enhancement against which it has been tested.1*
• Includes a powerful source of curcumin that has been scientifically shown to have a 29% improved bioavailability than common sources of curcumin.*
• The broccoli seed extract chosen uses the highest concentration of the active ingredient sulforaphane glucosinolate and is the same product used in the studies at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.*
• Employs BioPerine to enhance the bioavailability of key nutrients
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that has gained a lot of attention for its purported health benefits. But what is glutathione, and does it actually affect the body?
Read on for more information about this antioxidant and what the research says about its effectiveness.
What is glutathione?
Glutathione is an antioxidant that is produced and found in every cell of our body. It is the body’s master antioxidant and chief cell protector against free radicals and oxidative stress. Among the critical roles it fills, Glutathione protects us from harmful toxins in the environment by acting as one of the body’s primary detoxifiers. To learn more about the essential role Glutathione plays in our lives.
Unfortunately, our bodies are continually subjected to extreme demands from work, stress, and everyday life, not to mention the harmful toxins, pollution, and free radicals that are constantly attacking our cells. All of these combined put a heavy toll on our Glutathione demand.
Many of the methods of increasing Glutathione are either not effective or are non-efficient for what our bodies need. Simply supplementing Glutathione orally is limited in effectiveness for raising Glutathione levels because it is destroyed in the digestion process before it is able to reach the cells.
Glutathione has many important functions, including:
Researchers have found links between low levels of glutathione and some diseases. It is possible to increase glutathione levels through oral or intravenous (IV) supplementation.
What are benefits of glutathione?
The benefits of glutathione may include:
Free radicals may contribute to aging and some diseases. Antioxidants help to counteract free radicals and protect the body from their damaging effects.
Glutathione is a very strong antioxidant, partly because high concentrations can be found in every cell in the body.
Some research shows that glutathione has a role in preventing the progression of cancer.
However, the same research indicates that glutathione may make tumors less sensitive to chemotherapy, which is a common cancer treatment.
Determining the effects of glutathione on cancer will require more research.
Hepatitis, alcohol abuse, and fatty liver disease all damage the cells of the liver.
A small 2017 clinical trial concludes that glutathione could help treat nonalcoholic fatty liver disease due to its antioxidant properties and potential to detoxify.
The researchers note that larger studies are needed to confirm this effect.
A small 2018 study indicates that people with insulin resistance tend to have lower glutathione levels, particularly if they have experienced complications, such as neuropathy or retinopathy. A 2013 study reaches similar conclusions.
The findings appear to support injected glutathione as a potential therapy, but there is little evidence about oral supplementation. Further research is necessary to support its use.
Like other inflammatory diseases, ulcerative colitis has been linked to oxidative damage and stress.
A 2003 animal study suggests that glutathione supplementation can improve some of the damage to the colon in rats.
Determining the effects of glutathione on ulcerative colitis will require more research in humans.
There is some evidence that children with autism have lower levels of glutathione than neurotypical children, or those without autism.
In 2011, researchers found that oral glutathione supplements or injections might reduce some effects of autism. However, the team did not look specifically at the children’s symptoms to see if any had improved, so further research is needed to determine this impact.
