What are Glutahione Precursors?

Glutathione precursors are the nutritional building blocks your body uses to make glutathione.

Taking a straight 100% glutathione supplement is a waste of time.  As the glutathione is destroyed by the acids in the stomach. This is one of the reasons why it is best to take the building blocks of glutathione, known as precursors of glutathione.

Remember, glutathione is an endogenous antioxidant, meaning it is made by the body. Glutathione is the primary protector of our cells. It recycles and helps restore other anti-oxidants, earning it the title of Master Antioxidant. It is the first line of defense against our cells’ most violent attackers, namely free radicals, chemical toxins, radiation and heavy metals that enter our bodies through the environment and the foods and liquids we consume.

So, taking a glutathione supplement is ineffective. Instead, you can take GSH precursors, which your body will then use to make glutathione. Max’s proprietary RiboCeine™ technology is the solution for effective supplementation for optimal glutathione production.

There are three main precursors of glutathione:

-L-Cysteine (a water soluble form of cysteine is N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC))


-Glutamic Acid (glutamate)

Glutamic Acid and Glycine are abundantly made in the body and easily found in the foods we eat. Cysteine is also made in the body but requires methionine (a cysteine precursor). Methionine is often used up for other bodily functions (like eliminating fat–VERY important! and creating creatine to feed our msucles)

So if the methionine is used up, not much is left for cysteine production.

So what’s the solution?

Cellgevity, is Max’s premiere formula and features our proprietary RiboCeine™ technology, a special blend of D-Ribose and L-Cysteine, combined with an all-star collection of 12 complementary ingredients to more effectively enhance the function of glutathione within your body.

Although scientists have known for decades about the health benefits of glutathione, the challenge has been how to safely and effectively increase glutathione levels. Up to now, methods of increasing glutathione levels have not been efficient in elevating glutathione to optimal levels.

RiboCeine solves this problem of how to increase glutathione levels by providing cysteine, a fragile amino acid necessary to produce glutathione, in a patented formula that can be absorbed through the digestive system.

logo-riboceine_enFACT: RiboCeine has been the subject of twenty two published, peer-reviewed scientific studies that were funded by the National Institutes of Health and other scientific institutions. These studies have shown RiboCeine’s effectiveness in increasing glutathione levels and effectively fighting against the effects of oxidative stress. RiboCeine is based on 25 years of scientific research and was developed by the world-renowned research scientist and medicinal chemist Herbert T. Nagasawa, Ph.D. Read More.
