Dr. Herbert T. Nagasawa is the inventor named on ten U.S. and PCT patent applications.
Here is what Dr. Nagasawa has to say about joining with Max International in taking glutathione to the world:
"Glutathione is so important….it does so many different functions…it encompasses the whole spectrum of your organism.
For example, it is important in talking about, not so much the antioxidant properties, but it is important for having amino acids get transported (that means protein synthesis), it is important in regulation, it is important in maintaining your immune system healthy, and finally, it is important as the protective agent that actually sequesters free radicals that you get from the environment.
And the organs that are highest in glutathione levels: that is the eye, the ears, the lung, the liver, the kidneys, and the skin.
These organs have the highest concentrations of glutathione, for good reason, because these organs are subject to all of the toxins in the environment.
When I started to work on glutathione and started to find out all of the ramifications of glutathione and …then we found that a particular molecule can replenish the glutathione,
…I felt that this technology, if not transferred within my lifetime, I would be very unhappy.
I’d like to be able to have this technology transferred, and the only way to transfer this technology, is to have a commercial entity do it.
Myself, being a scientist, I have absolutely no knowledge of the business.
And I’ve been taught, when I was in school, that…if you have a discovery, the first thing you have to do is patent it.
And second thing if you want to have it disseminated is to get a commercial person to do it and stay out of it.
Just stick to the science." ~Herbert T. Nagasawa, Ph.D. as he spoke on the CellGevity Announcement Video.
