What Our Patent Says About Our Science

Image of a doctor

Max’s scientific expert, Dr. Herbert T. Nagasawa, pioneered RiboCeine™, engineering technology capable of influencing cellular behavior towards a desired outcome. RiboCeine works by affecting the cellular interaction and chemical reactions that result in endogenous Glutathione production and enhancement.  RiboCeine™ technology does exactly what it is intended to do, is still the cutting edge, superior method for conveniently elevating Glutathione in the body by the body. Max products with RiboCeine™ are the perfect example of what to invest in as they meet the criteria expected of exceptional supplements effective in Glutathione enhancement.

Dr. Nagasawa’s RiboCeine technology is a masterpiece. It’s science-based, innovative, and unique. And it’s an invention backed by years of diligence and dedication and superior science and research. Technology and invention at this level should afford its inventor exclusive rights. To obtain those rights, Dr. Nagawas’s RiboCeine™ invention needed to be recognized and awarded with a patent.

Riboceine™ Awarded a US Patent

What is a Patent:

A patent is a legal right to an invention given to a person or entity without interference from others who wish to replicate, use, or sell it. Patents are granted by governing authorities and have a time limit, usually 20 years.

In order for a patent to be awarded, the invention must, as defined by The United States Patent and Trademark Office, fulfill four conditions. It must be:

  1. Able to be used (the invention must work and cannot just be a theory)
  2. A clear description of how to make and use the invention
  3. New, or “novel” (something not done before)
  4. “Not obvious,” as related to a change to something already invented.1

Google patents details the RiboCeine patent process with an introduction about the history of Glutathione and why RiboCene is important and effective in Glutathione enhancement. 

Google Patents official website confirms a problem with cysteine (the depleted component necessary to Glutathione’s composition): 

There is a long-felt need to solve the problem of how to deliver cysteine to an animal in a convenient form.2

Long before the majority of the world ever heard the word Glutathione, Max’s world-class scientist – expert in organic chemistry, biology, cellular health and function – recognized the importance of Glutathione. Forty years prior to the time Glutathione hit mainstream healthcare awareness, Dr. Herbert T. Nagasawa began his research on Glutathione. And his goal was to solve the aforementioned problem. 

After 30  years of research,  of trials and errors, of total scientific focus and expert understanding, Dr. Nagasawa created the innovative solution to deliver cysteine in a convenient form. He developed D-Ribose-L-Cysteine and termed it RiboCeine™

RiboCeine: Superior Glutathione Enhancement 

Google then follows with this statement immediately prior to explaining D-Ribose-L-Cysteine –  Max’s cellular innovation and patented technology:

The present invention [RiboCeine] solves this need as well as others.3

Max’s RiboCeine is a unique and new invention that, per the above requirements, does what it intends to do and what it does significantly outperforms all other forms of Glutathione enhancement. Per the patent application rules, Max’s scientists detailed how Riboceine™ works. Patent language refers to  how an invention works with the words Mechanism of Action, or the MOA. 


Mechanism of action (MOA) refers to the specific biochemical interaction through which a substance produces its biological effect. A mechanism of action usually includes mention of the specific molecular targets to which the substance binds, such as an enzyme or receptor.4 

Mechanism of Action of Max’s Patented RiboCeine:

In relation to Max’s patented technology, mechanism of action (MOA) refers to the specific biochemical interaction through which RiboCeine™ (the bioavailable substance) withstands digestion and is effectively absorbed (has excellent bioavailability) through the bloodstream to successfully provide the body with the cysteine (that, if not supplied, depletes with age) and ribose it needs to produce Glutathione naturally (to make its own).

Max’s scientists have decades-long experience and knowledge of Glutathione, chemistry, biology, and cellular health. Their exceptionally high standards, world-class ethics and methodologies, integrity and innovative thinking, and an awarded patent place them among the exceptional best of the world’s scientists. And that excellence can be experienced through Max’s scientifically formulated products that deliver broad health and wellness benefits.

Why does bioavailability matter?

Most Supplements Lack Absorption

The truth is, we can’t just take Glutathione over the counter and effectively absorb it. Most supplements lack what is known as “bioavailability”, which is the ability to be absorbed by the body on a cellular level. The active ingredients in most supplements are expelled from the body without any benefit to you, which is a waste of time and money.

RiboCeine is Patented & Proven to Enhance Glutathione

Max’s proprietary RiboCeine technology was designed specifically to help our body’s produce Glutathione naturally within our cells and avoid the challenge of low bioavailability.

When effectively absorbed, RiboCeine helps to combat toxins, free radicals and oxidative stress. Oxidative stress damages cells, compromising our overall health.*

With the health obstacles we all face, now more than ever is the time we should be looking to maximize our health.

RiboCeine is easily absorbed and enables the cells to create glutathione naturally to help strengthen a healthy immune system.

It is a unique molecule that combines ribose and cysteine, nutrients that occur naturally in our bodies. The cells then use the ribose and cysteine to naturally produce Glutathione as well as ATP – our cells’ natural fuel and source of energy.
