The Importance of Glutathione and the Breakthrough Discovery RiboCeine™

Some of you may have heard of glutathione. For those of you who haven’t, glutathione was first discovered in 1888, but its healing properties were not identified until the 1970’s. Glutathione is an intercellular anti-oxidant produced in every one of the trillions of cells in the body. It has tremendous detoxification capabilities, eliminates free radicals, relieves oxidative stress and improves energy levels as well. But most importantly it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, which is important because most health experts agree that cellular inflammation is at the root of most diseases that we face today. Your body is heavily reliant upon glutathione and the benefits of optimal glutathione levels have profound impacts on your daily life and long-term health.

The bad news about glutathione is that production begins to taper as we age starting as early as age 20. Many outside factors (stress, toxins, and lifestyle) can cause glutathione levels to decrease even faster leading to compromised health. Unfortunately due to its fragile state, current methods of supplementing with glutathione are ineffective. The NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) has been used for many years to help raise glutathione, but it has limits in how effective it can be.

So here’s the good news! Following 25 years of research, Dr. Herbert Nagasawa’s studies led to the breakthrough discovery of RiboCeine™. RiboCeine™ has shown to be 300% more effective than NAC in raising glutathione levels. This science based discovery is supported by 20 peer reviewed clinical studies. RiboCeine™ is a patented proprietary compound exclusively available in the line of products developed by a company named Max International. Their products combine RiboCeine™ with a host of other natural antioxidant herbs and extracts that I talk about regularly at Earth Elixir, such as Turmeric root, Milk thistle and others. RiboCeine™’s patented delivery method ensures that the active ingredients arrive at the cell fully intact whereas by comparison the contents of most off the shelf products are destroyed in the gastrointestinal tract. Sadly many people are still paying for products that they are literally flushing down the toilet, receiving little or no benefit from them.

Do you know family or friends that want to increase their energy levels, slow down the aging process, reduce muscle and joint discomfort, detoxify the liver and cells, improve the quality of sleep and improve mental focus and clarity?

These products are changing lives and we need to get more people to share the word.

Join me in helping to prevent disease and improve the quality of life!

These products are not available in retail stores. You can buy them through me or you can learn how to become a distributor and benefit not only from the satisfaction of helping others, but the financial reward of doing so. If you are already in the health care practice, this is an absolute must for your patients!!
