MAXTHERAPY Full Body Lotion treats you from your head to your feet.

Unlike other moisturizers and lotions, MAX contains the MAXimum amount of beneficial ingredients recommended by the manufacturer. Most other skin care products have a high percentage of water and fillers and therefore, do not have the healing and infusion properties of MAX. Combining correction with protection at an affordable price, MAX infuses the skin with Vitamins C, E, B5, Aloe Vera, and Grape Seed Extract. MAX helps heal and correct dry and damaged skin, while providing a strong defense as an excellent anti-oxidant, helping to prevent damage from free radicals and other environmental factors which lead to premature aging. Although gentle enough for sensitive areas and such as the face; MAX is highly concentrated to tackle even the roughest skin.

MAX helps with skin conditions such as : psoriasis, eczema, cracking/bleeding skin, rashes, sunburn and wrinkles. ( See our numerous testimonials from people who have had these skin conditions and benefited from using Max).

MAX soothes the skin as it moisturizes, improving the skins suppleness and elasticity, repairs and strengthens the skins collagen structure to improve texture and firmness which is helpful in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. MAX also provides anti-inflammatory action, moisture retention, skin smoothness and softening. MAX is particularly good for people with an active lifestyle and those who experience skin dryness.

Rest assured, MAX ingredients are always of the highest quality and MAXimum strength levels to produce MAXimum benefits for MAXimum results. MAX is NOT another “ me too “ product; it is unique and like no others.

Now that you know what MAX can do for you, lets talk about the beneficial properties of the ingredients in MAX :

VITAMIN C

As a participant in hydroxylation, vitamin C is needed for the production of collagen in the connective tissue. These fibers are ubiquitous throughout the body; providing firm but flexible structure. Some tissues have a greater percentage of collagen, especially: skin, mucous membranes, teeth and bones.

Vitamin C is required for synthesis of dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline in the nervous system or in the adrenal glands.

Vitamin C is also needed to synthesize carnitine, important in the transfer of energy to the cell mitochondria.

It is a strong antioxidant.

The tissues with greatest percentage of vitamin C — over 100 times the level in blood plasma — are the adrenal glands, pituitary, thymus, corpus luteum, and retina.

The brain, spleen, lung, testicle, lymph nodes, liver, thyroid, small intestinal mucosa, leukocytes, pancreas, kidney and salivary glands usually have 10 to 50 times the concentration present in plasma.

VITAMIN E

Protects the epidermis from early stages of ultraviolet light damage

Increases the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients

Reduces the formation of free radicals upon skin exposure to UVA rays and other sources of skin stress

Prevents the peroxidation of fats, a leading source of cell membrane damage in the body

Reduces transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skin’s barrier function

Protects the skin barrier’s oil (lipid) balance during the cleansing process

Reduces the severity of sunburn

Skin absorbs and maintains levels of topical vitamin E, prolonging its benefits between applications

VITAMIN B5

In clinical studies, topical application of Vitamin B5 significantly improved the skin barriers.

Vitamin B5 reduces water loss through the skin.

Vitamin B5 is beneficial to improve the form and function of the skin.

It also fights acne and facilitates in wound healing and burns. It helps with arthritis, rhintis and high cholestrol.

Vitamin B5 is known to help with skin tissue repair.

It replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger.

Vitamin B5 helps bind moisture to the skin and is recommended for use with Vitamin C to help Maximize the benefits of your daily skin care product.

ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera is the most widely used ingredient in skin care products today.It's certainly got the credentials for a star role: The plump, spiky leaf of the cactus-like plant contains more than 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds, including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins. In fact, one researcher at the University of Texas Health Science Center described aloe as "a pharmacy in a plant."

Cruise the beauty aisles of any natural products store, and you'll wind up thinking that With so many healthful ingredients, it's not surprising that studies have backed up what aloe fans have claimed for years: Aloe is good--really good--for skin. Not only does it relieve burns and speed healing (see Aloe + Health, p. 20), but there's evidence that it helps prevent sun damage (read: aging), eases both psoriasis and frostbite, and improves collagen, the skin's support structure. And, oh yes, it's hard to find a better natural moisturizer.

No wonder every cosmetics maker on the planet seems to be adding aloe to their skin care treatments. In some cases (soaps, astringents), it's just a little extra added goodie to up the skin-soothing quotient. But when you want intense moisturizing, and a chance at potentially deeper benefits too, potency counts. The International Aloe Science Council advises choosing products that contain 25 to 40 percent aloe. Rule of thumb: If the label doesn't give percentages, look for aloe to be the first or second ingredient listed.

Welcome to the healing side.

Aloe vera is best known as a soothing remedy for minor burns, rashes and wounds--but when it comes to burns, it does more than just ease pain and inflammation. Extensive research since the 1930s has demonstrated aloe's ability to speed up healing. (See, moms do know best.) For instance, a Study in the 1990s of people with moderately severe burns found that those who used aloe gel healed in about 12 days, while-those who used a regular gauze dressing took 18 days to heal.

Aloe vera gel is also an effective treatment for psoriasis symptoms, insect bites and allergies, and it even helps lessen the painful effects of shingles. A micro-coating of aloe is now also found inside the latex gloves used by doctors, police and lab technicians to protect their hands from latex irritation. Applying the soothing gel to skin is worry-free except for a few unlucky people who, ironically, develop a mild allergic reaction (usually a rash or itching).

Note: much of the material in this section is derived from sources with a financial interest in selling products, and few properly conducted clinical trials are cited. This does not necessarily invalidate the claims.

For medicinal purposes, aloe vera is most commonly used externally to treat various skin conditions, and burns. Not only does it soothe the skin, ease pain and reduce inflammation, studies have been done to show that using aloe as a topical treatment to burns will help speed up the healing recovery process. A study performed in the 1990s showed that the healing of a moderate severe burn was sped up by six days when covering the wound on a regular basis with aloe vera gel, compared to the healing of the wound covered in a gauze bandage (Farrar, 2005). Aloe vera helps burns of various degrees, including sunburn. When the gel is rubbed over over-exposed skin, the redness will disappear within a couple of days, and it helps to preserve moisture so that the skin will not become dry and peel. A cut leaf from an aloe vera plant can be rubbed over the skin, as it exudes gel; the gel can also be bought in drugstores.

Aloe vera can also be used to treat minor cuts and scrapes. Rubbing a cut leaf over a cut will help prevent infection and will speed up the healing response from the body. The aloe vera acts as a sealant and pulls the skin back together like a bandage or a suture. Although aloe should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, its many uses are beneficial and should be considered for anything such as an everyday moisturizer to a first-aid antiseptic. In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, continuous research is being done to learn how else the aloe vera plant can play an important part in human lives.

Many cosmetic companies are now adding this plant to every product possible including makeup, soaps, sunscreens, shampoos and lotions, as well as any product that is created to soothe, protect and moisturize the skin. This is due partially to the fact that Aloe extract is full of vitamins, nutrients and minerals, as well as, the perception of the general public of Aloe as a healing ingredient. The International Aloe Science Council advises choosing products that contain between twenty-five and forty percent aloe in them to receive the ultimate aloe vera benefits to the skin.

Aloe gel is also useful for any dry skin condition, especially eczema around the eyes and sensitive facial skin, and for treating fungal infections such as ringworm. In Ayurvedic medicine, the gel is usually applied fresh and can even be converted into an ointment for long-term use.

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Grape seed extract is the primary commercial source of a group of powerful antioxidants known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), also generically called pycnogenol, a class of flavonoids. Laboratory studies have indicated OPCs are much more effective than vitamin C and vitamin E in neutralizing free oxygen radicals, which contribute to organ degeneration and aging in humans. The primary sources of OPCs are pine bark extract and grape seed extract. However, the grape seed extract is more widely recommended for its lower cost and because it contains an antioxidant not found in pine bark.

Grape seed extract is a mixture of complex compounds and has a wide range of therapeutic uses, from preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease to alleviating symptoms of allergies, ulcers, and cataracts. Its antioxidant properties are believed to help slow the aging process. Procyanidins, a group of compounds found in the extract, are thought to increase the effectiveness of other antioxidants, especially vitamin C and vitamin E, by helping them regenerate after neutralizing free radicals in the blood and tissue. OPCs in the extract are water-soluble, making them easily absorbed by the body. They also are able to cross the stubborn blood-brain barrier, providing antioxidant protection to the brain and nervous system. Most of the research on grape seed extract has been done in Europe, so many of its reported benefits have not been reviewed or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is available as an over-the-counter supplement. According to Varro E. Tyler, dean emeritus of the Purdue University School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences, the procyanidin compounds found in grape seed extract are useful in treating vascular disorders They are also antioxidants, or free-radical scavengers, that help prevent some age-related cancers and atherosclerosis. Grape seed extract is a relatively new supplement in the United States, although it has been used in Europe for several decades. Its antioxidant properties were realized in the 1980s with the so-called French paradox, in which researchers discovered that the French had low rates of heart disease even though their diet was high in cholesterol. This was credited to their widespread consumption of red wine. Further research led to the OPCs concentrated in grape seeds.
