OysterMax® has been clinically proven to protect the body from oxidative damage and to increase energy levels because of its Glutathione Supplement properties.
This happens in two ways.
- Oysters have high levels of free amino acids in the fluid surrounding their tissues. Our process concentrates these free amino acids in our capsules and we also allow a controlled amount of proteolysis to occur which breaks larger proteins into the more bioavailable sub units called peptides and amino acids. These free amino acids and peptides have a direct anti-oxidant effect in the blood.
- The same free amino acids stimulate the production of glutathione in the body. Glutathione is a major anti-oxidant, which prevents oxidative damage and helps increase energy levels. This is why oyster extract is a primary glutathione supplement.
Endurance athletes, stressed-out professionals, individuals exposed to environmental stresses such as UV light, smoking, excess alcohol consumption, all suffer from higher than normal levels of oxidative stress/free radical build up. The fatigue associated with this oxidative stress has been shown to be reduced by taking OysterMax® Glutathione Supplement.
Fatigue can also occur in cases of heavy metal toxicity. OysterMax® glutathione supplements contains selenium, which has an antagonistic relationship with mercury and can therefore help detoxify the body. Oyster extract has been used traditionally for centuries for liver cleansing and the trace elements in OysterMax® glutathione supplements have been shown to be beneficial in aiding the release of energy from the liver.
The trace elements in the OysterMax® Glutathione Supplement are also known to control over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. Many of these regulate processes, which govern the way energy is created and utilised by the body. For example, OysterMax® glutathione supplements contains the building blocks for some of the enzymes, which regulate insulin production, which in turn controls blood sugar levels.
