MaxGXL 5

5 stars

I don't like taking pills and I don't take them as directed, but this product definitely makes a difference with my energy level and focus. I have MS and Without question helps me get through the day...I'm probably deficient of something that this product works or triggers in my body chemistry.

MaxGXL 1

I've know numerous people who have tried MAX with either no results or bad results. In my opinion, MAX is just another Multi-Level company that marks prices way up (over 800%) so they can pay out bonuses to distributors that become part of their business pyramid.

It's a cheap and unproven product with a massive markup. (Typical MLM)

MaxGXL 2

I took MAXGXL at the recommended dosage for four days and decided to stop. Although they say MAXGXL can provice mental clarity, it did the exact opposite for me. My mind was racing and I could not concentrate to the point it was difficult for me to even carryout my daily responsibilities at my work.

I will say that I certainly felt less tired; however, this benefit was worthless if my brain couldn't function.

You have to question why the company would recommend the same dosage for everyone, regardless of weight. They must do this in order to get you to purchase the maximum dosage each month so more money can be made.

As for the energy I felt, I don't know how to describe it. It didn't feel like "natural" energy, that's for certain. I had to check my eyes out in the mirror because I felt like my pupils might be dialated; they weren't, thank goodness.

I'm sure not all people will experience what I did. With that said, I'd be cautious about taking MAXGXL and listen to your body. Beward of people who might try to minimize comments like the one I am making here. There are a lot of people selling this product and it seems they show up in posts only commenting on the positive effects.

MaxGXL 5

My extended family has been on MaxGXL in varying doses for almost two years with no side effects and some amazing benefits. There are tens of thousands of people taking MaxGXL and, as with any supplement, I am sure there are some reported side-effects or reactions. In addition there are tens of thousands of incredible stories about improvement in health, immune system, mental clarity and vitality.

In reading reviews it is always wise to look to the bias of the reviewer. I am a health care worker and share MaxGXL (in addition to other nutritional supplements from other companies) with people and let them make their own decisions after trying free samples and/or studying the literature. I believe in this product, in the research and developement behind it and in the people that form the company from owners to clinicians to people in the field sharing the Max story.

We do this by directing people to the research, to the VETRIFIED studies on NAC and the other components in MaxGXL and then letting them make an informed decision. Please Google NAC, Cystiene, Gutathione and read the studies and clinical documents. There is nothing to hide and no ulterior motive.

Two reviewers below however do seem to be on a vendetta and the key words in the most recent reviewers article lead me to wonder if he/she does not work with one of the competitors of Max. Bio-"..." protein and whey protein are the words of their company. This person is TOXIC and seems to be on a personnal mission to trash NAC and MaxGXL. Do we really believe that several members of his community were hospitalized or even went to the hospital after trying MaxGXL?!? Come on - this is not the stuff of reality.

NAC has been an incredible tool for the healing (including Holistic) Medical community and nutritional supplement community for decades. NAC is used to treat everything from broncitis, to liver disease, to AIDS, to cardiac problems, to Autism, to Parkinsens, and on, and on..........Please provide one shred of clinical documentation to show anyone being damaged by NAC including young children being treated for Autism with large doses of NAC.

What the anti-NAC folks (most of whom are representing another product being impacted by MaxGXL) would direct you to is a small, non-human, study out of South Carolina that after some other attempts cannot be collaborated. Most of the data and side effects noted are based on enourmous quantities of NAC, far beyond what is found in MaxGXL.

NAC in large, mega doses, does cause some reactions in SOME people like diarrhea, vomiting, etc just as a mega dose of any product has the potential of doing. Eat the six pounds of aspargras needed to move your glutathione up like a supplement and see if you don't get a little headache or diarrhea.

The last reviewers email address says it all. Search the motive, the facts and what you percieve to be truthful statements and make your own best decision.

Truth, honesty, transparency and Grace in how we talk about other companies and products will go a long way to creating a strong trust and belief in the nutritional supplement industry.

Thanks for reading and blessings in your day, week, month, year and Life!

MaxGXL 1

Cysteine, contained in certain foods such as undenatured whey protein, may be the best food source of glutathione...Why?

Should Max GXL Be monitored and forced to be prescribed? Why?Many Many Practitioners here in our community who work in HOlistic Wellness have developed severe ailments after using Max GXL for only a short period of time. Some have been hospitalized after ingesting especially with heart related and hypertensive conditions. Though no studies have been done or proof we all had too many scary stories to not stop taking it. And we found it hard to not take it. Like it was habit forming. Months have passed since weaning off of it and some have grown worse and or are still having frightening symptoms.
One of the most frightening of all is:According to research conducted at the University of Virginia Health System, N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can form a red blood cell-derived molecule that makes blood vessels think they are not getting sufficient oxygen. This leads to the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a serious condition characterized by high blood pressure in the arteries that carry blood to the lungs.
also reports of the following in many people:"Adverse reactions reported with oral NAC include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache (especially when used along with nitrates) and rashes. There are rare reports of renal stone formation. Adverse reactions reported with intravenous NAC include bronchospasm, nausea, vomiting, stomatitis, rhinorrhea, headache, tinnitus, urticaria, rashes, chills and fever. There are rare reports of anaphylactic reactions. The most common symptoms of those experiencing anaphylactoid reactions are rash, pruritis, flushing, nausea, vomiting, angioedema, tachycardia, bronchospasm, hypotension, hypertension and ECG change. The anaphylactoid reactions are pseudo-allergic rather than immunologic."
bioactive whey protein to increase glutathione rather than to use Max Gxl or other supplements containing NAC.
Interactions for NAC: "Nitrates: Use of supplemental NAC along with nitrates may cause headaches. C N-acetylcysteine clearance is reduced in those with chronic liver disease as well as in pre-term newborns. NAC may be harmful if administered early in the treatment of critically ill patients. NAC may intensify headaches in those taking nitrates for the treatment of angina. Although the incidence of cystine renal stones is low, they do occur. Those who do form renal stones, particularly cystine stones, should avoid NAC supplements. NAC and its sulfhydryl metabolites, like other sulfhydryl-containing substances, could produce a false-positive result in the nitroprusside test for ketone bodies used in diabetes. NAC should be used with caution in those with a history of peptic ulcer disease, since mucolytic agents may disrupt the gastric mucosal barrier."
arbamazepine: Use of supplemental NAC along with carbamazepine may cause reduced serum levels of carbamazepine
we are all asking if this should come as a prescription and regulated because of the vastness and strength and to the seriousness of reactions such as false readings in diabetes (this happened to a lady with diabetes and she really got into trouble, because as far as we can see the right correction medicine dose could not be given due to false readings, and she was fine before the Max GXL) once again, not backed up by any proof but there are ssooo many reports coincinding with the times of ingesting the Max)
If you want to read more, I found much info here towards the bottom of the page.
The high rates of reports are adding up.
Though there are many great aids and healing herbs in this formula, Our vote is a big thumbs down for this combination and the biggest scare is the NAC.
There are many sources of Glucosamine which are safer.
We found Symbiotics Colostrum Plus most helpful and adding raw enzymes to the diet such as broccoli, parsley, the green sources from nature. Research and reaction from the body for yourself is the best answer as far as we are concerned.

MaxGXL 1

I experienced an adverse reation when I took Max GXL as I was directed. I took the first packet at 3 o'clock on Sunday and the second packet on Monday morning. I first experienced extreme dry mouth that could not be quinched.

The third packet was taken on Monday afternoon and the fourth packet on Tuesday morning. I was now beginning to experience joint pain, muscle weakness as well as muscle pain. The muscle pain was concentrated in my lower back. (After a month of not taking the MaxGXL I still have residual muscle pain in my lower back that is preventing me from working.)

I took the last packet on Wednesday morning. By now my complcations had reached severe and was forced to discontinue taking Max GXL.

I was told to cut back to only one pill per day and gradually build back up to the recommended dosage. Because one of my best friends was asking me to try Max GXL, I was tempted to continue. I am so grateful that I quit taking this suppliment because of the lingering side-effects.
My joint pain took two weeks to subside and as I mentioned earlier, I still have muscle pain in my lower back.

I could be one in ten thousand that will experience this adverse reaction. Please be sure that if you sell this to your friends, family, and neighbors to not let the money cloud your sensibilities.
