What is the best anti-oxidant? For several years, we have been hearing about anti-oxidants. So what exactly is an anti-oxidant and why is it so important? To understand this better, lets briefly discuss exactly what it is that cells do.

As you probably remember from your 4th or 5th grade science class, cells are the smallest living units. Some organisms are single-celled and there are those composed of billions of cells, each organized into tissues and organs to perform a specific function to help the body.

As cells perform their most basic function, which is the production of energy for the body to use, there are certain by-products that are a result of the chemical reactions that create this energy. Oxygen is necessary for living organisms, but oxygen “burns” and that burning process creates these by-products. To a cell these by-products (oxidants) are like what rust is to a nice steel pipe. An anti-oxidant is like the body’s “rust remover.” Over time, the body has accumulated several years of “rust” which the body perceives as “inflammation” on the cellular level. In a perfect world, we all would get 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night, be stress-free, not ingest harmful substances such as tobacco and alcohol, eat a well-balanced diet consisting of live, healthy foods and live in an environment free of polutants. Short of all that happening, we have to supplement the body’s ability to produce an effecient anti-oxidant.

Dr. Robert Keller is a world renown physician and researcher in the field of Internal Medicine, Immunology and Hematology. His studies and research has delved into the field of cellular inflammation and anti-oxidants in supressing the damage on the cellular level and discovered what is the best anti-oxidant.

The best anti-oxidant has been found to be glutathione. Most chronic illnesses and age-related debilitating conditions have been shown to be a result of inflammation on the cellular level. This inflammation can be reduced by increasing the level of glutathione. Dr. Keller has also found that glutathione plays a significant role in the quality of life in AIDS and HIV patients.

Although the product formulated by his research is not intended to diagnose,treat, cure or prevent any disease, glutathione is the fuel used by the cell to perform its functions as well as prevent the build-up of “rust” on the cellular level.

It does not help if you consume supplements that merely contain glutathione, because the digestive system breaks down ingested glutathione and it will not be absorbed into your system. On the other hand, MaxGXL™ provides the proper nutrients needed to promote the body’s own ability to manufacture and absorb glutathione. MaxGXL™ also aids in liver support by detoxifying the body of environmental poisons helping the liver to function as the main production site and store house for glutathione.
