Protandim - The Nrf2 Synergizer


Protandim - The Nrf2 Synergizer

Protandim activates the body's natural ability to reduce age-related symptoms on the cellular level. Protandim reduces oxidative stress 40 percent in 30 days and activates Nrf2 to communicate with your DNA to deliver a biochemical wake-up call to your genes.




The Aging Problem

There's nothing like a new car, and you never forget the day your drive your first one off the lot. But eventually your new car ages, the catalytic converter becomes less effective, the exhaust isn't very clean, things begin to rust and the engine suffers wear and tear.

Our cells are like car engines. They have the same combustion process, produce some of the same byproducts and clean up with similar catalytic converters. When we're young, our enzymes (our cells' catalytic converters) function well and do a good job cleaning the toxic byproducts our bodies generate. But unfortunately, like cars, our bodies don't always function like new. As we age, our bodies produce more free radicals and less of the special enzymes that fight free radicals causing oxidative stress. The damage by oxidative stress leads to the symptoms of aging.


Oxidative Stress

We obtain energy by burning fuel with oxygen--that is, by combining digested food with oxygen from the air we breathe. This is a controlled metabolic process that, unfortunately, also generates dangerous byproducts. These include free radicals--electronically unstable atoms or molecules capable of stripping electrons from any other molecules they meet in an effort to achieve stability. In their wake they create even more unstable molecules that attack their neighbors in domino-like chain reactions. This causes toxic effects that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids and DNA.

Oxidative stress represents an imbalance between the production of oxygen and the body's ability to detoxify and repair the damage caused at the cellular level. In other words, although we need oxygen to live, high concentrations of it are actually corrosive and toxic.

While one antioxidant molecule can fight only one or two free radicals before it is depleted, the body's free radical-fighting enzymes can each eliminate up to 1 million molecules per second, every second. The most effective way to fight free radicals and the oxidative stress they cause is to trigger the body to produce its own free radical-fighting enzymes. Protandim activates the body's natural enzymes that subtantially reduce free radicals.



How Protandim Works

Our bodies already contain the information how to effectively combat stressful situations, such as oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. That information is stored in our genes. The secret lies in being able to instruct cells regarding the implementation of that information. Enter Protandim.

Protandim, the most potent commercially available Nrf2 Synergizer dietary supplement market, induces cells to produce more of the genetically encoded catalytic defense systems. Every enzyme molecule produced by this approach can eliminate up to 1 million free radicals per second, every second.

Protandim achieves this feat by activating a signaling molecule called Nrf2, the master regulator of the body's aging process. Nrf2 can switch on protective genes and switch off genes that may have a negative effect on health.

When this protein messenger, Nrf2, is activated, it enters the nucleus of every cell and turns on hundreds of the body's survival genes. These genes enable cells to survive in the face of several different kinds of stress, especially oxidative stress. Nrf2 also affects hundreds of other genes, pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic genes, by turning them down.

Thus Protandim, a master regulator of the aging process and an Nrf2 synergizer, activates survival genes, including antioxidant genes that keep us safe from free radicals and oxidants. It also turns down genes that perpetuate inflammation and genes that encourage slow, progressive fibrosis to take place. Together these actions provide a remarkable promise of protections from many kinds of age-related health conditions.

Ingredients and Production

Protandim, protected by four patents, is made of five potent botanicals:

Milk -ThistleMilk Thistle Extract (Seed) 
The milk thistle is a flowering plant of the daisy family. Native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, its seeds have been used for 2,000 years to treat chronic liver disease and to protect the liver against toxins. Increasing research is being undertaken on the physiological effects, therapeutic properties and possible medical uses of milk thistle.

Bacopa -monnieriBacopa Extract (Aerial Part)
Bacopa herb, commonly grown in marshy areas throughout India, has been touted for its cognitive enhancing effects for centuries. It possesses strong antioxidant properties, protects mental function and helps improve learning skills.


ASHWAGANDHAAshwagandha (Root)
Ashwagandha root is a herb of the ages from the traditional medicine of India and is considered an "adaptogen," a term used to describe herbs that improve physical energy and athletic ability, increase immunity to colds and infections and increase sexual capacity and fertility. Ashwagandha helps boost the immune system, helps alleviate stress and is also used to treat inflammation, improve memory and provide a rich source of antioxidants.

Greentea3Green Tea Extract (Leaf)
Green tea originates from China and is associated with many cultures in Asia and the Middle East. It has been subjected to many scientific studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits. Many believe green tea helps lower chances of heart disease and of developing certain types of cancer due to flavonoids, a group of phytochemicals in most plant products that are responsible for antioxidative and anticarcinogenic functions.

Tumeric -LongaTurmeric Extract (Rhizome)
Turmeric has been used for centuries and has always been an important part of Chinese herbal medicine and has also been used in India for 2,500 years. Truly, the health benefits of turmeric have been slowly revealing themselves over the centuries. This natural food is believed by many to support liver health, help prevent bad cholesterol and is being studied for its ability to prevent and block the growth of tumors. Turmeric has attracted the attention of researchers in the fields of Alzheimer's disease, memory deficits, arthritis, cancer (including breast cancer) and diabetes. It possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and its antioxidant power is so effective it actually helps preserve the shelf life of foods it's added to.
