The immune system works to prevent and fight infections in the body. It is composed of many cells, proteins, tissues, and organs that work together to recognize and fight off antigens, or foreign substances that create disease. Usually, the immune system effectively protects the body from infections. However, certain conditions and lifestyle practices can weaken the immune system, causing increased susceptibility to illness and disease.
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.
Garlic + Parsley Oil Blend
Garlic is a plant in the onion family. It is commonly used to enhance flavor in cooking, due to its unique and delicious taste. However, research has shown that garlic has many health benefits in addition to being enjoyed in common foods. Throughout history, garlic has been used in Greece, China, India, Rome, and other countries for medicinal purposes. Some of these purposes include increased strength, improved cardiovascular function, healing wounds, and more.
Today, modern research has shown garlic’s health benefits to be true. Garlic’s unique sulfur compounds are what promote the broad range of health benefits this plant has been associated with throughout history. These compounds are activated when garlic is broken down; meaning crushed, chopped, or chewed. Garlic + Parsley Oil Blend contains highly bioactive metabolites, allowing the body to receive maximum benefits and potency.
Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant. Like all other essential vitamins, humans cannot synthesize Vitamin C and must absorb it from foods that are consumed. Vitamin C is water soluble meaning that humans must ingest it in large quantities.
Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables and is critical to stimulating and supporting many biological functions. Although Vitamin C deficiency is not often a problem for those living in Western countries (like the United States and Canada), many individuals have harnessed the protective and rejuvenating effects of Vitamin C by supplementing with MaxLiving Vitamin C Complete. Vitamin C plays a significant role in the production of collagen, which is the fibrous constitute of the skin, tendon, bones, cartilage, and all other connective tissue. Supplementing with Vitamin C supports the body’s ability to repair tissues, heal wounds, and maintain healthy skin, bones, and nails.
Humans undergo oxidative stress as a result of the build-up of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are formed as reactive by-products of ATP production or from toxins in the environment. Oxidative stress is damaging to all cells and promotes the development of many chronic and degenerative diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, aging, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Vitamin C supplementation helps the body’s natural ability to reduce free radicals in the body and naturally detox.
Citrus bioflavonoids and quercetin are plant-derived compounds with antioxidant properties that function synergistically with Vitamin C to counteract the oxidation of free radicals and reduce toxicity in the body. Bioflavonoids increase the bioavailability of Vitamin C. Without the addition of citrus bioflavonoids and quercetin, as is in MaxLiving Vitamin C Complete, other Vitamin C supplements may not offer the same or offer a reduced antioxidant activity level.
Vitamin C has also been found to be antihypertensive and lower serum LDL cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations; thereby, reducing one’s risk for heart disease, and vitamin C enhances the bioavailability of iron.
MaxLiving Vitamin C Complete works with the body’s natural defense system and metabolism to increase immunity, nourish and repair tissues, and ward off diseases.

Vitamin D3 + Probiotics
Vitamin D can be attained through two sources: UVB light and diet. When exposed to sunlight, the body manufactures Vitamin D from cholesterol, this is where Vitamin D draws its nickname, “the sunshine vitamin.” Still, some people do not make enough Vitamin D from the sun, among them, people who have a darker skin tone, who are overweight, who are older, and who cover up when they are in the sun. According to experts, the gold standard in Vitamin D supplementation is D3, also known as cholecalciferol. The reaction that takes place from exposure to UVB light results in the formation of Vitamin D3; for this reason, D3 is known as the natural form of Vitamin D. UV radiation is a known human carcinogen, making supplementation a safer alternative to achieving optimal Vitamin D levels. Probiotics are live nonpathogenic microorganisms that are introduced into the digestive tract to improve microbial balance. Prebiotics and Probiotics have been shown to have the ability to manipulate the microbial composition and support healthy immune response of an individual.†

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.
