  • A Powerful New Treatment For Lyme Disease

    Lyme-Support-group.box-1.4Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia mayonii and Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. Alarmingly common in the US, over 200K people each year are infected after being bitten by a deer tick. The chances of getting Lyme disease when bitten, depend on the type of tick, where you where when bitten, and how long the tick was attached. Many types of ticks bite people in the U.S., but only blacklegged ticks transmit the bacteria that cause Lyme disease.

    Symptoms of Lyme disease include fatigue, fever, headache, stiffness, swelling, joint pain, and if left untreated, can affect the heart and nervous system. Seventy to eighty percent of those infected will see a Erythema migrans (EM) rash. This rash shows up 3 to 30 days after a tick bite and as it enlarges, it resembles the shape of a "bulls-eye target". Another recognizable symptom is facial paralysis or facial palsy where one or both sides of the face appear droopy. If you experience any of these symptoms, especially after spending time in wooded or grassy areas known to have ticks, consult your local health professional as soon as possible.
    Prevention is the best defense against Lyme disease. It is recommended to avoid wooded and brushy areas, and use repellents that contain at least 20 to 30% DEET. Be sure to follow the product instructions, and re-apply as often as necessary. Permethrin is also an effective way to treat gear and clothing. Blacklegged ticks need to be attached for at least 24 hours before they can transmit Lyme disease. This is why it's so important to remove them promptly and to check your body daily for ticks if you live in an endemic area.
    The CDC cautions against trying remedies that include painting with nail polish, covering with petroleum jelly, or using heat to get a tick to detach. The goal is to remove the tick as soon as possible, do not wait for it to detach. They recommend use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin's surface as possible. Then pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don't twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal. After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water.
    According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Lyme disease is treatable, meaning patients who receive prompt medical attention typically make a full recovery from the disease. Traditionally, doctors prescribe oral or intravenous antibiotics to patients diagnosed with this disease. However, the class of bacteria that causes Lyme disease is known as a spirochete, and they are very difficult to kill, which as led many doctors to recommend a new approach:

  • How Antioxidants Help The Human Body

    An antioxidant slows or prevents cellular damage. The prefix 'anti' means in opposition to, against, or corrective in nature.  An antioxidant is really a behavior; rather than a substance. Thus, any compound that can counteract free radicals and donate electrons has antioxidant properties. May experts believe the damage caused by free radicals are a contributing factor in the development of various blood vessel diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, cataracts, and other serious illnesses. Antioxidant supplements can be taken to counter these effects. These supplements are a convenient and quick way to get the free-radical fighting support the human body needs.
    Free Radicals Within the body, numerous processes are constantly occurring, and these processes require oxygen. However, that same oxygen may create harmful, oxidant substances, which cause cell damage. Oxidants, or "free radicals", can also be introduced into the body through external sources such as exposure to pollution or the sun. Other mediums include stress, alcohol, cigarette smoke, and unhealthy foods. Oxidation causes a breakdown of body cells in much the same way as it creates rust o the surface of inanimate objects. Free radicals attack healthy cells, proteins, and fats. This leads to a speeding up of the aging process and a weakening of immunological functions.
    How Antioxidants Help Anti-oxidation agents, or antioxidants, minimize the effects of harmful oxidants by binding together with those dangerous molecules, thereby decreasing their destructive properties. They can also help repair damaged cells. Certain anti-oxidation agents are produced naturally within the body. They include glutathione, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Other antioxidants, however, are found in vegetables and fruits, those with the brightest colors being healthiest. Spinach, tomatoes, carrots, and red peppers are good examples. Choosing raw vegetables and fruits rather than cooked foods provides the best absorption and highest concentration of antioxidants.

  • MaxGXL 180 capsules (30-Day supply)

    Did you know glutathione is the most powerful, prevalent antioxidant in your body? Increasing your glutathione level will naturally increase your energy, detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system. MaxGXL’s® Patent Pending Formula Dramatically Increases Intracellular GSH. MaxGXL provides the proper nutrients needed to promote the body's own ability to manufacture and absorb glutathione. MaxGXL also aids in liver support, thus helping the liver to function as the main production site and storehouse for glutathione. Increasing Age and Other Factors Reduce the Body’s Production and Utilization of GSH. Research has shown that individuals who have low levels of glutathione are susceptible to chronic illness. Research shows that GSH levels decline by 8% to 12% per decade, beginning at the age of 20. Levels of glutathione are further reduced by continual stress upon the immune system such as illness, infection, and environmental toxins. As we now know, a lowered immune system can bring about illness and disease. This is a ferocious cycle. While you need glutathione for a productive immune system, a weakened immune system hampers the production of glutathione. Supplements Containing Glutathione Alone Will NOT Increase The Body’s GSH Levels. It is pointless to purchase 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 destroying environmental poisons helping the liver to function as the main production site and storehouse for glutathione.
