1. What is CELLUVie®?
CELLUVie is a proprietary formulation of undenatured whey protein isolate specific to CTFO containing the precursors that signal our bodies to produce more Intracellular Glutathione. When our Glutathione levels stay elevated, your body is more able to fight off free radicals, reduce oxidative stress and improve cellular health. Healthy Glutathione levels help delay the aging process, increase youthful energy and delay skin aging from the inside.
2. What is glutathione?
Each of your cells contains glutathione, a substance created from three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. Glutathione is known as a master antioxidant and supports your immune function and detoxification at the intracellular level. It is a tripeptide produced by your own cells necessary to sustain life. Glutathione levels fall as we age. This could result in low energy, joint discomfort, foggy brain, low immunity and poor sleep.
3. Why can’t a person take glutathione supplements?
Generally, glutathione taken orally gets destroyed by stomach acids in the gut and never reaches the cells.
4. How does CELLUVie support the increase in glutathione levels?
CELLUVie® acts as a precursor, a substance that is more easily transported through the gut and ultimately into your cells where it supports the production of glutathione.
5. How is CELLUVie different from other whey protein isolates?
This is a proprietary formulation made only for CTFO. It has the highest bioavailability when compared to other whey protein isolates. We use undenatured whey protein which derives its whey from milk, and not from the by-product of the cheese-making process, like most other whey proteins.
CELLUVie® is known to be less expensive than other high-end why proteins and up to 50% more bioavailable. It contains the highest serving of cysteine and protein per 100g of CELLUVie®, while having the least amount of lactose.
6. Why do we use undenatured whey protein?
Undenatured whey protein has not been processed from whey, but directly from milk, this allows for the maximum glutathione producing benefits. Undenatured whey also uses a cold filtration process, leaving all of its natural benefits intact.
7. Does CELLUVie® use a proprietary manufacturing process?
We have our very own unique manufacturing process developed by our scientific team backed by over 20 years of knowledge. The unique process enhances a balance of specific peptides formulated to maximize the Glutathione producing benefits.
Generally during the manufacturing process of other whey protein isolates, heating and pasteurization are used. This causes the essential links that include the cysteine molecule to break, thereby reducing or destroying the same protein that serves to increase Glutathione levels.
8. How do I know that CELLUVie is of good quality?
CELLUVie is beyond “good quality”. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in the United States established a method, known as the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS), which is now internationally recognized. According to this method, an ideal protein will have a value of 1.0. The PDCAAS of CELLUVie® is 1.14, which significantly exceeds the FAO’s requirement.
9. I’m lactose intolerant. Can I use CELLUVie®?
CELLUVie® has a content of lactose of less than 1%. This means that it’s absolutely undetectable to the body and there’s no risk of discomfort, even in the worst cases of lactose intolerance.
10. Can people with a milk allergy take CELLUVie?
This is a rare condition only 1 out of 1.5 million children are born with. It is unlikely you would be asked, as mothers know to stay away from proteins, but these children should not take the product.
11. How long will one bag of CELLUVie last me?
The CELLUVie bag has 30 scoops. We recommend 1 scoop per day to help maintain optimal health and vitality. We advise that you start on the 3-2-1 protocol for better results. This is referred to as “front loading”. This is where you take 3 scoops a day for the first 15 days, then 2 scoops a day for the next 15 days, and then on to 1 scoop a day after that. This means that the first bag will only last 10 days. We always advise for first time buyers to purchase three bags (our discounted loading serving package) in order to get optimal results and then enroll on Auto-ship for one bag per month.
12. Who should NOT use CELLUVie?
People who are allergic to the milk protein should not use CELLUVie, however, milk allergies are extremely rare. Please note that being “lactose intolerant” does not mean having a milk allergy. Any recipient of an organ transplant and following an immunosuppressive therapy should consult their general practitioner prior to using CELLUVie.
