Since you all are far more knowledgeable about these things than I am, I thought I'd run this up a flagpole and see if anyone here can give me some info.
My oldest daughter's boss is raving about a product he has been taking. I mean, really going off the deep end about this stuff. He bought some at a sports game just to try it and says it makes him feel great - lots of energy, builds his immunity, strength, etc. He is normally a laid back kind of guy but he's all excited and insists everyone he knows has to get some.
It is called MaxGXL ( http://maxgxl.com
) and is sold as "a complex nutritional supplement that uses an ideal combination of nutrients to facilitate Glutathione replenishment." Supposedly it increases your own body's ability to produce antioxidants and antitoxins.
The ingredients are: Calcium Ascorbate, L-Glutamine, Milk Thistle, N-acetyl d-glucosamine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Quercitin, Cordyceps.
What I don't like about it, is the way it is sold - one of those multilevel marketing things. It's also expensive... but then, a lot of supplements are. I could definitely use a non-caffeine energy boost and wouldn't mind the improvement to immunity, but of course the last thing I need is to toss money away on something that doesn't do what it promises, or even worse, is harmful.
