We require the properties of superabundant numbers, that is to say left to right maxima of $n \mapsto \frac{\sigma(n)}{n}$. Let $P_{n}$ be equal to $\prod_{q \mid \frac{N_{r}}{6}} \frac{q^{\nu_{q}(n) + 2}  1}{q^{\nu_{q}(n) + 2}  q}$ for a superabundant number $n > 5040$, where $\nu_{p}(n)$ is the $\textit{padic}$ order of $n$, $q_{k}$ is the largest prime factor of $n$ and $N_{r} = \prod_{i = 1}^{r} q_{i}$ is the largest primorial number of order $r$ such that $\frac{N_{r}}{6} < q_{k}^{2}$. In this note, we prove that the Riemann hypothesis is true when $P_{n} \geq Q$ holds for all large enough superabundant numbers $n$, where $Q = \frac{1.2 \cdot (2  \frac{1}{8}) \cdot (3  \frac{1}{3})}{(2  \frac{1}{2^{19}}) \cdot (3  \frac{1}{3^{12}})} \approx 1.0000015809$. In particular, the inequality $P_{n} \geq Q$ holds when $\sum_{q \mid \frac{N_{r}}{6}} \sigma(\frac{n'}{q^{\nu_{q}(n) + 1}}) \geq \sigma(n') \cdot \log Q$ also holds such that $n' = \prod_{q \mid \frac{N_{r}}{6}} q^{\nu_{q}(n) + 1}$ since $\sigma(\ldots)$ is multiplicative.
