Comparing MaxGXL™ with HMS 90®/Immunocal® Over the years, I have been asked numerous times to give my opinion about a product or products on the market that proclaim to raise glutathione levels. Several of my publications have discussed many different ways of raising glutathione, in science there are rarely any “secrets”. I hoped the answers to most of your questions would be found in these essays. However, over the past few months, I have been deluged with questions and concerns regarding the MLM product called “MaxGXL”. I undertook a study of its contents and effectiveness to better be able to address all the queries. My answers are based on the science behind the individual components as well as trying to access any studies done specifically on MaxGXL. In an attempt to be more efficient, I have put forward a comparison chart to clarify some of the major differences. I encourage the reader to verify all the information below on their own or through a qualified health professional. The source of information you use should be unbiased to ensure no association with either MaxGXL or Immunotec to ensure that it be impartial. Hope this information serves you well,

It summarizes how readily the broken down protein can be used in protein synthesis in the cells of the organism. Egg protein is considered the reference at BV= 100. BCAA = branched chain amino acids. Critical for muscle repair and synthesis. Scientifically accepted glutathione precursor (glutathione “building block”) PDR = Physicians’ Desk Reference.
