Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer
Protandim®, the Nrf2 Synergizer™, is a patented anti-aging supplement specially formulated to combat oxidative stress and to activate Nrf2, a protein messenger contained in every cell of your body. What makes Protandim so powerful and important to health is its ability to communicate with your DNA, to deliver a biochemical wake-up call to your genes, telling them to increase what your body is already programmed to do—fight aging and oxidative stress at the source.
We Live In A World Of Stress
As we live, eat, breathe, sleep and exercise, our bodies create free radicals, which result in oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is believed to be the root cause, at the cellular level, of aging. The older you get, the more oxidative stress your cells naturally produce; inflammation in cells increases, as does the formation of scar tissue—known as fibrosis.
Your body naturally creates antioxidant enzymes that fight against oxidative stress. In fact, there are hundreds of genes in these enzyme families and together they form what scientists call “survival genes,” defensive, stress responsive, cytoprotective genes that enable cells to survive in the face of several di erent kinds of stress and injury.
An important enzyme activator, Nrf2, tells your body to make these crucial enzymes. Nrf2 activates your body’s antioxidant defense mechanisms, detoxification mechanisms, immune balancing mechanisms and anti-stress mechanisms—mechanisms that slow down cellular aging and reduce the risk of degenerative diseases and many age-related diseases. Diseases linked to oxidative stress include Parkinson’s disease, heart failure, cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome and cancer, among others.
Because your body already contains the information it needs to eff ectively combat stressful situations, such as oxidative stress and chronic inflammation, the secret lies in being able to instruct cells regarding theimplementation of that information. That’s what Protandim does.
Made from five natural ingredients, Protandim activates Nrf2, which does its job of regulating genes to make your body function at an optimal level. Protandim uses your body’s own resources and that is what sets Protandim apart from any other supplement.
Protandim has been evaluated and documented by researchers in nine peer-reviewed studies, with more in planning stages. These studies have been published in prestigious medical journals with funding from sources that include the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health.
