Protandim: A Million Times More Effective than Your Average Antioxidant
But I want you to be skeptical!
I sure was.
For 7 years, I turned down dozens of offers from supplement companies asking me to promote their products. These companies didn't ultimately have what it took to put my reputation and well-earned trust on the line for.
Protandim was no different. I first heard of this supposed "super antioxidant" at the end of April 2011. Unfortunately, it was a multi-level marketing (MLM) product. I wouldn't be caught dead telling my patients about an MLM product.
But then two things happened.
#1. Real Science
After learning about Protandim I started to do my due diligence and read through all of the third-party peer-reveiewed research papers. Other companies had sent me research before. But they were never on the actual finished product, just the ingredients. This is what I call "borrowed research".
The published research I read on Protandim actually had the name of the product in the studies. As I read through these studies I couldn't believe what I was reading. To me it seemed almost too good to be true.
#2. Unquestionable Results
After 4-5 days on the product, I noticed that my sleep was much more restful, and my mental focus and clarity was off the charts! My memory was eerily sharp.
It had my attention.
How many times have you set foot into a GNC, CVS, or Walgreens in the past decade? For 7 years, Protandim sat on the shelves of these retail outlets collecting dust. Why? Because the bottle doesn't talk.
Your supplement store clerk was clueless as to what this little yellow pill did. And If you (like me) were one of the millions who missed the ABC Primetime segment which aired in 2005, so were you. Until now.
I'm not your amateur supplement salesman. Actually, I'm not really here to sell you on anything at all. I'm only here to share a story with you. Since this story was not being told at the retail outlets, Protandim found itself in a bind. This groundbreaking product would either sleep with the fishes or go the way of 3-way calls, in-home presentations, and person-to-person marketing.
Lifevantage, the publicly traded manufacturer of Protandim, chose the latter. And here we are.
Not Your Average Antioxidant.
Direct dietary antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E, while beneficial, are limited in their ability to neutralize free radicals, the scavengers that cause damage to the 50 to 75 trillion cells that make up your body. This destructive process called oxidative stress is associated with over 200 disease and conditions.
Typical dietary antioxidants neutralize free radicals one at a time. For example, one molecule of vitamin C kills one free radical. Then its job is over. While this may be helpful in reducing cellular damage, it is an inefficient process.
Why? Because your cells produce 300 sextillion free radicals daily. That's 300 with 21 zeros behind it!
To neutralize that many free radicals, you would have to consume 375 oranges or 87 glasses of red wine or 120 vitamin C tablets (500mg)!
Flip the Switch!
A well-kept secret is the fact that your cells can produce their own antioxidant enzymeslike glutathione (the master antioxidant and detoxifier). These enzymes neutralize free radicals at a rate of up to one million per second!
As you age, your production of these protective enzymes diminishes, making you more vulnerable to disease.
The combination of 5 natural ingredients in Protandim wake up your sleeping cells by activating a protein called NRF2, which sends a message to your genes to produce more antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic enzymes.
How important is NRF2 activation? Well, according to renowned anti-aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone,
"Finding substances that can turn on the highly-protective transcription factor NRF2 holds the key to preventing a host of diseases."
That's exactly what Protandim does! It flips the switch on your good protective genes and turns off the bad age- and disease-accelerating genes.
After just 30 days, Protandim will reduce your oxidative stress by 40%, bringing your levels down to that of a 20-year-old!
What are the Ingredients?
Protandim's 5 natural active ingredients are:
▪ Milk Thistle Extract (Silybum marianum)
▪ Bacopa Extract (Bacopa monnieri)
▪ Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
▪ Green Tea Extract (Camilia sinesis)
▪ Turmeric Extract (Curcuma Longa)
All have been used safely for thousands of years in Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine. It is the synergism of these plant-derived ingredients that lends the product its potency.
Protandim is 100% Vegetarian - Free of Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Gelatin and Yeast.
The Banned Substance Control Group recently certified Protandim as safe and free of any and all banned substances.
Who is the Formulator?
Protandim's chief formulator is Dr. Joseph McCord, winner of the 1997 Elliott Cresson Medal. This award puts Dr. McCord in legendary company as past recipients include Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, Marie Curie, and Orville Wright.
Dr. McCord was honored with the award for co-discovering the biology of free radical reactions in living organism. In other words, he co-founded the entire field of free radical biology! How's that for credibility?
What Can You Expect?
Oxidative stress can manifest itself in so many different ways, which is why product testimonials have been so variable. Reports from Protandim users include:
* Increased energy
* More restful sleep
* Enhanced immunity
* Reduction in joint pain
* Improved eyesight (I'm serious!)
* Rapid exercise recovery
* Radiant skin with reductions in fine lines and wrinkles
* Improved mood
* Faster hair and nail growth
I wish I could tell you some of the most amazing stories. But the last thing I need is a visit from the FDA!
What I know for sure is that Protandim will reduce your oxidative stress by 40%. Again, oxidative stress is associated with over 200 diseases and conditions. I leave it to you to put two and two together.
