BEWARE OF FAKE ISHIGAKI BEING SOLD EVEN HERE ON EBAY! ORIGINAL ISHIGAKI HAS SOUR GRANULES. BOTTLE WHEN OPENED SMELLS LIKE ROTTEN EGG. FAKE ISHIGAKI DOESN'T HAVE THIS SMELL AND CAPSULES TASTE BLAND. IT CAN BE HARD TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL AND THE FAKE JUST BY MERELY LOOKING AT THE BOTTLE BUT I'M SHARING A FEW TIPS. BELOW ARE PICTURES OF THE ORIGINAL AND FAKE ISHIGAKI:
Latest Packaging (New L-Glutathione Tri-peptide Formula)
Original (older formula)
Most visible difference - sticker label of original is lighter
Font type used for the brand name ishigaki looks similar but they are actually different
Pay attention to the letter 'g' of the word ishigaki: the g in the original bottle has a finer tail while the one on the fake has a thicker tail
The sticker label used in the original bottle is off white while the one used on the fake is pure white, this is hardly noticeable unless you are looking at the bottle side by side
There are more ways to tell the difference between the contents and I can share them with you when you decide to purchase from us
Some Facts about Cysteine--Ishigaki's addition to its new & better formula
Cysteine and Glutathione Production
Cysteine, along with Glutamic acid and
Glycine make up the tripeptide, Glutathione, which is an important
antioxidant, detoxifying chemical compounds, peroxides, and protecting
cells from free radical damage. Levels of Glutathione decrease after
age 40 and low levels are associated with increasing the aging process.
Excessive alcohol, acetaminophen, and cigarette smoke deplete
Glutathione levels. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine may be even more effective in
raising Glutathione levels in the lungs, kidneys, liver and bone
marrow, then L-Cysteine or even L-Glutathione supplementation. (Also
take ALA). By boosting the Glutathione levels, anti-aging effects are
have been noted, such as the reduced appearance of "age spots"
WHAT IS CYSTEINE?
Cysteine is a conditionally indispensable
sulfur amino acid. Although it is formed in the body from Methionine,
insufficient amounts are synthesized - even in healthy individuals.
Severely traumatized patients, and especially burn patients, require
increased amounts of Cysteine for metabolic -nutritional needs.
Cysteine is a constituent of Glutathione and Coenzyme A, a precursor
for Taurine, and converts to Cystine in the body, which is made up of
two Cysteine molecules. Since Cysteine is more reactive than Cystine,
it is generally more often recommended for biochemical support.
has antioxidant properties reacting with free radicals and peroxides,
and chelating with heavy metals. It helps detoxify the liver and
protects the liver and brain, and possibly the kidneys and bladder as
well, from the harmful toxic compounds in alcohol, drugs, cigarette
smoke, & radiation and chemical therapy. (N-Acetyl- L-Cysteine
given to those taking chemotherapy -in doses of 1-2 grams per day-
helped prevent against nausea and vomiting).
of the Cystine molecule, is found in alpha-keratin, the main protein in
hair, skin and nails, and it is involved in cartilage and collagen
production for healthy joints and youthful skin.
have been noted in those with food and chemical sensitivities, and when
the body is under severe stress with increased catabolic rates. Low
levels of Cysteine are often noted in these patients and they have
insufficient amounts for Glutathione synthesis. Burn patients, and
those with sepsis and impaired immune system diseases, have increased
oxidative damage to cells, and Glutathione is necessary to help prevent
the free radical damage and help improve tissue repair and immune
Cysteine supplementation has had some beneficial
effects on children who have the rare, congenital sun-sensitive
disorder called Erythropoietic Porphyria. These individuals have
exceptional photosensitivity and have been administered L-Cysteine in
place of beta-carotene with positive results.
Oral supplementation has been more effective than parental administration in raising Cysteine levels.
this is a highly reactive compound, L-Cysteine should be stored in a
dark glass container to protect its integrity. Montiff supplies
L-Cysteine in brown glass bottles.
Vitamin B-6 is necessary
for proper metabolism and Vitamins B-12 and Folic acid are important to
prevent the abnormal metabolite Homocysteine from forming; therefore a
B complex, such as Montiff B-Complete or B-Long is recommended.
works best when taken with Vitamin E and Selenium. For those requiring
broad-spectrum protection against free radical damage, Montiff Super
Antioxidant Formula is recommended, which includes N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine,
Vitamin E, Selenium, Folic acid, B-12, plus Taurine, Glutathione and
other important antioxidants.

cleanses the liver; and being an anti-oxidant, it rids the body of free
radicals that contribute to aging and sicknesses.
The advisable dosage of glutathione as anti-oxidant is 10-20mg per
kilogram of body weight. In order to use as a skin whitening agent, it
has to be taken at a dosage of 20-40mg per kilogram of body weight. For

amount of vitamin c to be able to maximize its whitening effect, which

precaution, please consult your doctor first before taking any kind of
