Cellgevity is a dietary supplement that has been around for a long time. But is it a product worth trying or a scam you should avoid? In this review you’ll find out all about this product, who created it, and the reasons why I don’t think it is a scam.
Cellgevity is a supplement that is targeted towards overall health and wellness. It is created by Max International, a company that specializes in ‘glutathione technology’ and has branches in several countries across all continents (except Antarctica, of course). According to them, Cellgevity is equipped with their exclusive ‘RiboCeine technology’ which has been found to boost natural glutathione levels in the body. This, in turn, allows the body to detoxify itself and get rid of free radicals more efficiently, leading to better health and wellness. Of course, we are going to look into this in details but first, let’s talk more about the manufacturer, shall we?
Max International: Who are They?
Max International is a company that was founded in Utah, USA in 2006. It touts itself as ‘the global leader in Glutathione enhancing products.’ Its founder is Steven K. Scott, a well-known TV informecial specialist who is now an author of Christian books.
Max International has a team of researchers apparently headed by Dr. Herbert Nagasawa, the man credited with the development of the RiboCeine technology used in Cellgevity. Nagasawa is currently a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry in the University of Minnesota, a position he has held since 1973.
Max International is listed at the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating and has zero complaints. However, it is not a BBB-accredited business.
The bottom line? Max International is a legit company with basically no major complaints against it. So far, so good. Now on to the product itself.
What is Cellgevity?
Like I mentioned earlier, Cellgevity is a supplement that is claimed to help boost the natural production of glutathione in the body. According to their website, ‘Cellgevity is a proprietary blend superbly balanced with prime ingredients cells utilize for superior function for better health.’ They go on to claim that Cellgevity ‘replenishes cells with what they need to produce glutathione for effective detoxification of harmful toxins and free radicals.’
Max provided more details about Cellgevity in their Product Sheet, where they explain that their product has solved the problem of how to naturally boost glutathione levels, a ‘challenge’ that scientists have struggled with for years. Now how did they achieve this? Enter the ‘foundation’ of Cellgevity: RiboCeine technology. Let’s talk about it, shall we?
What is RiboCeine Technology?
According to Max, RiboCeine is its ‘exclusive’ technology that has been scientifically proven to naturally boost glutathione levels in the body. It achieves this by providing the body with cysteine, a ‘fragile’ amino acid that is necessary for glutathione production. Max claims that cysteine needs to be transported to the cells in a specialized way in order for it to be available in sufficient amounts for glutathione production. Apparently, developing this efficient transport mechanism had been the challenge scientists were struggling with … until now.
RiboCeine, Max says, transports cysteine in a ‘patented formula’ that can be easily absorbed through the digestive system. The brain behind this technology is, of course, Dr Herbert Nagasawa … in fact, it is his ‘life’s work’ that he debuted back in 1987. Since then, Max further claims that RiboCeine has been studied at least 22 times by independently-funded scientific researchers, and all of these studies have confirmed the effectiveness of RiboCeine in boosting natural glutathione levels.
FYI, ‘RiboCeine’ stands for Ribose and L-Cysteine. Ribose is naturally produced by the body without problems, while cysteine’s natural production by the body can be hindered by certain metabolic issues brought about by certain disease conditions. Therefore, cysteine is classified as a ‘conditionally essential amino acid’ that needs to be supplemented in certain medical situations.
Other Ingredients of Cellgevity
Apart from RiboCeine, Cellgevity also has 12 other ingredients that ‘supports’ gluthathione production. They include:
- Milk thistle
- Alpha lipoic acid
- Vitamin C
- Aloe extract
- Black pepper
- Broccoli seed extract
- Turmeric root extract
- Grape seed extract
All these ingredients are well known for their antioxidant and immune system-boosting activity. Max also provides a Product Sheet where they describe each of the ingredients and how they affect the body. I highly recommend you check it out if you want more information.
Other inactive ingredients include:
- Vegetable capsules
- Soy Lecithin
- Stearic Acid
- Silicon Dioxide.
Who Should Use Cellgevity?
Cellgevity is meant to be used by adults only. Children, pregnant women and nursing mothers should NOT use this supplement. Also, Cellgevity contains soy, so the males interested in this product should keep that in mind. Also if you are allergic to mushrooms, then Cellgevity may not be for you since it contains Cordyceps, a kind of mushroom.
Of course, if you are currently under any kind of medication you should consult your doctor first before trying this product. This is because drugs tend to work against each other or cause some other drugs and/or supplements to be too potent, thereby causing you serious problems. So given the kind of supplement we’re dealing with here, it’s best to see your doctor first about it.
How to Use Cellgevity
The manufacturers recommend that you take 2 capsules 2 times a day with water. You can take it for as long as you like. You should also store the supplement in a cool, dry place at temperatures not exceeding 30ºC (86ºF).
Cellgevity Side Effects
I haven’t seen any reports of Cellgevity causing any serious side effects. But judging from the ingredients listed, expect to experience minor issues like nausea, headache, diarrhea and increased need to drink water. Meanwhile, it’s best to avoid this supplement if you are allergic to mushrooms.
Where to Buy Cellgevity
Max International has local offices in a handful of countries across the globe… so if they operate in your country, you may walk into their office to buy it there. However you can order the product online through:
- Their official website
- Ebay and
Please note that on Ebay, Cellgevity is sold by individuals and not by Max itself. This is because Max uses a Multi Level Marketing (MLM) model, which allows people to buy from them in bulk and sell them locally. So if you want to buy directly from Max International, either get it from their website or at Amazon.
Pricing of Cellgevity
The pricing of Cellgevity varies depending on where you buy it from due to the MLM model Max International operates. However, you can still buy this supplement from their website or at Amazon. However, for you to buy directly from their website, you’ll have to go through the process of registration and other stuff before you can order. If you don’t have the patience for that, then you can choose to order from Amazon or eBay. Also note that it is more risky to order at Ebay due to the fact that the company itself does not use the platform. Instead, the product is sold by many individual vendors who have their own refund policies and pricing.
Anyway at Amazon, the average cost of one bottle (120 capsules, 60 servings) is $70.94. This is equivalent to a 30-day supply. There is also a two-bottle option at $148 with free shipping.
There’s no information about any moneyback guarantee on Max’s website. However, you are covered by the refund policies of Amazon and eBay if you choose to order from there.
- The manufacturer of the supplement are legit with a clean record
- The science behind the product has been independently studied and proven to be effective
- Mainly positive testimonials. I’m having a hard time finding any negative testimonial regarding the effectiveness of the product.
1. Not Cheap. Cellgevity is not a cheap product. So be ready to shell out a significant amount of money if you decide to buy this product.
2. The MLM Nature of the Product. Cellgevity is owned by a company who markets its products using the MLM (Multi Level Marketing) model. In this model, an individuals signs up as an affiliate to sell the product and is rewarded for referring others to join. These referrers are then added to this individual’s ‘pyramid’ where the person on top of the pyramid earns a commission from every sale made by others below him. This is the same model used by Herbalife and coffee company OrganoGold.
One major problem with this model is that oftentimes these affiliates don’t have a clue about what they are talking about or the nature of what they are selling to you. What most of them are interested in is to sell you the product and move up the pyramid. That is not to say, however, that the product they sell (in this case, Cellgevity) is bad or that you shouldn’t buy from these affiliates. Just make sure that you are buying it from someone who has proven to be competent and qualified to sell such a product.
3. Issues With Refund Policy. Max International does not provide any information about their moneyback policy. So you are left in the hands of the moneyback policies of the retail shops or affiliates you purchased from. Not everyone will be happy with this complicated arrangement.
Final Recommendation: YES, BUY Cellgevity!
In conclusion, Cellgevity is a gluthathione enhancing supplement that is worth checking out. Of course, it will not work for everyone, but it is definitely NOT a scam and many people have reported finding success with it. So go ahead and give it a shot.
