The curcuminoids found in turmeric have been extensively studied for their ability to improve cardiovascular function, reduce inflammation, support musculoskeletal health, and maintain immune system health. Antioxidants like turmeric, superoxide dismutase and Indian gooseberry remove free radicals, greatly reducing oxidative stress levels.
Glutathione is easily one of the most important molecules needed to stay healthy and prevent disease. It plays a role in aging, cancer, heart disease, cognitive decline and more. Supplementation with N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine supports healthy glutathione levels and mitigates the negative effects of toxins, stress, trauma, medications and more.
This potent antioxidant formula contains Curcumin C3® Complex, a form of highly absorbable turmeric extract, as well as Extramel® M, a clinically studied melon extract rich in superoxide dismutase with extremely powerful antioxidant activity and anti-stress effects.† Indian Gooseberry provides additional protection against oxidative stress and N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine provides multifaceted cellular support against free radicals.†
This nutraceutical supports the nutritional focus of the 5 Essentials®.

Chronic, low-level inflammation plays a role in every leading cause of mortality in the United States. Inflammation and oxidative stress lead to an accumulation of free radicals and the development of chronic disease.
A growing body of evidence suggests that oxidative stress, free radicals and abnormal inflammatory reactions contribute to the key events in Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive decline, cardiovascular disease, cancer and numerous other pathological states.
- The presence of pro-inflammatory cytokines is associated with numerous chronic diseases such as type-2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. An overwhelming amount of data indicates that curcumin (a polyphenol obtained from the Indian spice turmeric, Curcuma longa) is a potential chemopreventive agent for treating certain cancers and other chronic inflammatory diseases.
- Curcumin has been reported to influence many cell-signaling pathways involved in tumor initiation and proliferation. Curcumin inhibits COX-2 activity, cyclin D1 and MMPs overexpression, NF-kB, STAT and TNF-alpha signaling pathways and regulates the expression of p53 tumor suppressing genes.
- Dyslipidemia is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease and is also a common feature of obesity. Research has found that serum triglycerides were significantly reduced following curcumin supplementation.
- Superoxide dismutase activity promotes antioxidant status and protects against increased inflammation. Supplementation with superoxide dismutase leads to lower C-reactive protein in athletes.
- Supplementation with Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) significantly improved signs and symptoms of stress and fatigue linked to performance, physical (pain or sleep) troubles, cognitive (concentration, weariness or sleep) troubles or behavioral (attitude, irritability, difficulty of contact) issues compared to the placebo. In the same way, quality of life and perceived stress were significantly improved with SOD supplementation.
- Treatment with Indian Gooseberry produced significant reduction of total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides and VLDL along with a significant increase in HDL levels. Indian Gooseberry produces a significant reduction in blood pressure. This study suggests that the addition of Indian Gooseberry to currently available hypolipidemic therapy would offer significant protection against atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
N-acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is an effective scavenger of free radicals as well as a major contributor to maintenance of the cellular glutathione status in muscle cells. Studies have demonstrated some possible roles for NAC to minimize fatigue or extend the time it takes for it to accumulate as well as prevent the onset of apoptosis secondary to exhaustive exercise.
- N-acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) provides rate-limiting cofactors in the production of glutathione. Because of its antioxidant activity, glutathione is essential for the immune system to exert its full potential. This suggests that adequate NAC levels are required in order to maintain healthy glutathione levels.

I am a bit confused a little on the differences between Daily Defense and Detox System, because it seems to me if you’re detoxing every day the Daily Defense would not be needed?
Daily Defense is a Regenerative Antioxidant Formula. It naturally protects the body from chronic low-level inflammation and provides defense against free radical damage. Daily Defense is also great for people with any type of bodily inflammation stresses and joint pain. Regeneration is especially important when regularly eating higher carbohydrate and unhealthy fatladen foods. Daily Defense, as well as Detox System, can be taken daily.
What does Daily Defense do?
Supports healthy inflammation response and defense against free radical damage. It is also good for inflammation and oxidative stress.
What is the difference between the curcumin in the new formula compared to the Turmeric Extract in the previous formula?
Previously we were using a form of turmeric that was not standardized to include a guaranteed amount of curcuminoids, the beneficial components found in turmeric. We have since moved to a standardized extract, backed by several research studies.
What is Curcumin C3 Complex®?
Curcumin C3 Complex® is a patented form of curcumin that contains three active compounds found in curcumin: Curcumin, Demethoxycurcumin and Bisdemethoxycurcumin. This standardized extract provides enhanced absorbability.
What does the higher amount of superoxide dismutase come from and what is Extramel® M?
We increased the amount of superoxide dismutase by using a more concentrated form that comes from melon extract. Extramel® M is a patented form of melon extract that contains high levels of superoxide dismutase.
What is the best way to take Daily Defense?
Daily Defense is best taken in the morning alongside Optimal Omega. The fat content of Optimal Omega enhances the absorption of the curcuminoids in Daily Defense. Turmeric, the source of curcuminoids, is fat soluble and requires a source of fat to carry it through the digestive process.
What is a hypermellose capsule?
This is a veggie capsule. It is non-animal and suitable for vegetarians. The biggest concern was that the SOD from the cantaloupe extract needs to be encapsulated in a protein to survive the digestion process to be effective. There are many cheap non-protected supplements out there which are useless when taken orally. Our SOD is a patented form of superoxide dismutase known as Extramel®. Extramel® is micro-encapsulated and protected to ensure bioavailability.
Why does Daily Defense now contain 10mg of Extramel® M instead of 140mg of Extramel® D?
Extramel® D Superoxide Dismutase was discontinued. The replacement is Extramel® M Superoxide Dismutase, which is 14 times more potent. This ingredient is used in 2 MaxLiving products: Daily Defense and Cell Detox (in Detox System). Less of Extramel® M (10mg) is needed to achieve the same activity of Superoxide Dismutase than Extramel® D (140mg), because Extramel® M is 14 times more potent.

Have used this for 4 yrs. Take it because ingredients help sustain body's ability to fight disease. The NAC supports respiratory system which is important to me.
Have taken it over 3 yrs. very satisfied. Recommend it highly. I feel it is doing what you say it does to get rid of radicals, to keep me healthly.
The NAC and cucurmin are beneficial for inflammation and that one of the benefits of NAC's is to aide the respitratory system. Both are especially needed in today's world.
