What is Protandim?
Every cell of the human body ages. Our DNA is programmed that way. Generally this is thought to be progressive and inevitable. Protandim is a clinically proven scientific breakthrough, that actually slows down the aging process of each cell in your body.
Scientists agree that many deadly diseases and the aging process itself is because of cellular deterioration. This deterioration is due to rogue molecules called free-radicals. The damage from free-radicals is called Oxidative Stress or Oxidative Damage.
Fight the aging caused by free radicals with Protandim!
There is only one supplement on the market that is clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40%, and that is Protandim. Clinically proven to slow down the aging process to the level of a 20 year old.* Protandim is no ordinary antioxidant supplement. Each Protandim Caplet contains a unique combination of phytonutrients that signal the body’s genes to produce its own antioxidant enzymes, which provides thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional antioxidant supplement.
You can’t avoid Free Radical Damage
Free Radicals are the same deadly molecules that cause rust. superoxides (o2). Aging is basically rusting from the inside out. It is natural for your body to create deadly free-radicals. This happens when you:
- Breathe in toxins in the air
- Eat Food
- Feeling Stressed
- Smoke, drink alcohol, take drugs (recreational or prescription)
- Over exposure to Sun
- Even exercise can create free-radicals!
Your ability to battle aging decreases as you get older
Natures way of restricting population of every species is through the aging process. It’s good for the species, but not great for the individual. A young body fights free-radicals effectively by producing its own antioxidants. An aging body however produces less antioxidants the fight the battles of ageing and disease.
Diet & Supplements
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants is helpful, however Protandim provides you with thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or supplement. To neutralize the amount of free radicals that your body produces every single day, you would need to eat 375 oranges, or have 87 glasses of red wine or about 120 vitamin C tablets (500g). Here’s why:
Not all antioxidants are equal. Conventional antioxidant supplements (such as Vitamins A, C and E) are known as ‘consumable’ antioxidants because they are used up as they neutralize free radicals on a one-to-one basis. The unique blend of phytonutrients in Protandim signal your body’s genes to produce special antioxidant enzymes (SOD and CAT) that work together to battle free radicals. These ‘catalytic’ enzymes are not using up the SOD and CAT when they neutralize free radicals. Taking Protandim once a day allows your body’s natural catalytic antioxidants to destroy millions of free radicals per second, every second.
Protandim Destroys Millions Of Free Radicals Per Second*
The unique blend of phytonutrients in Protandim signal your body’s genes to produce special antioxidant enzymes, SOD (superoxide dismutase) CAT (catalase) that work together as the body’s first line of defense against free radicals.*
These enzymes are “catalytic” , which means that SOD and CAT are not used up when they neutralize free radicals. A single daily caplet of Protandim creates a cascade of your body’s natural catalytic antioxidants that are able to destroy millions of free radicals per second, on a continuous basis – 24/7.*
All Natural Ingredients
Protandims natural ingredients were carefully chosen based on their ability to assist the bodys production of its natural network of antioxidant enzymes, including SOD and CAT. Protandim provides powerful antioxidant protection using high quality pontent herbal extracts. Following is Protandim’s ingredient list:
- Milk thistle extract (Silybum marianum) (seed)
- Bacopa extract (Bacopa monnieri) (aerial part)
- Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) (root)
- Green tea extract (Camellia sinensis) (leaf)
- Turmeric extract (Curcuma longa) (rhizome)
Additional ingredients: Calcium, Croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, modified cellulose, silica, stearic acid. Protandim is 100% Vegetarian – Free of Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Gelatin and Yeast.
On November 18, 2008, the results of a new peer-reviewed study (Free Radical Biology & Medicine) clearly demonstrate that Protandim produces a 300 percent increase in glutathione, which is a key antioxidant and anti-aging factor.
In addition, the study shows that Protandim’s synergistic formulation provides thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplements.
In an August 2005 published, peer reviewed human study, Protandim has been shown to eliminate the age-related increase in cell aging factors*
Dr. Joe McCord, a world renowned scientist, validated the precise combination of natural phytonutrients in the patented Protandim formula and proved that Protandim consistently and significantly boosted the body’s own production of two crucial protective antioxidant enzymes, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and CAT (catalase).* The implications were profound because these two antioxidant enzymes play a major role in neutralizing the cell-damaging free radicals associated with aging and a variety of health conditions.
Protandim is not an antioxidant supplement. It helps your body produce its own antioxidants with thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplement.* And the proof is conclusive.
Aging factors can be measured accurately by the amounf of TBARS (thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances) found in the blood. In clinical trials with men and women, young and old, the blood samples consistently demonstrated that after 30 days, taking one caplet a day, test subjects realized a 40 percent average decrease in TBARS – the progressive aging rate of a 20 year old!
When maintained for 120 days, Protandim significantly increased activity of SOD and CAT antioxidant enzymes by 54 percent, substantially increasing the body’s antioxidant defenses.*
The Antioxidant Myth
I have been taking Protandim since January 2005. I have not had a cold or been sick once. To me that is worth the price right there, and the long term benefits that we cannot see may be amazing! – Seattle, WA
Our bodies benefit from the vitamins and minerals found in foods known to be rich in antioxidants such as oranges, dark chocolate and red wine. We’ve all been led to believe that if we eat these foods and other foods like them, we’ll receive tremendous antioxidant rewards. But you can’t necessarily eat your way to excellent health.
Surprisingly, scientific studies show that your body can’t possibly ingest enough antioxidants to eliminate the number of free radicals your body makes every day. You would need to eat ridiculous amounts of foods rich in antioxidants (32 pounds of strawberries, 31 pounds of raspberries, 15 pounds of dark chocolate per day for example), to achieve the antioxidant power you get from one Protandim caplet each day.
When you take Protandim, you trigger what your body already knows how to do, only better. You ‘tell’ your body to increase production of its own two antioxidant enzymes, which helps prevent free radical damage to your cells thousands of times more effectively than any conventional antioxidant therapy. Healthier cells mean a healthier immune system, and decreased chance of disease as you age.
So enjoy wonderful foods for their great taste and the nutrients they are providing to your body, and take Protandim to take care of your body’s antioxidant needs.
