What is Protandim?

Protandim is the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average 40%, slowing down the cell aging process to the level of a 20 year-old. While conventional or direct antioxidants can neutralize only one free radical molecule, Protandim triggers the creation of enzymes that can each eliminate over a million free radical molecules per second without being used up.

Scientific research has validated oxidative stress – damage to your body’s cells by free radicals – as the root cause, at the cellular level, of aging. In fact, studies show that metabolic wear and tear caused by free radicals in cells accelerates aging, the problems associated with aging and contributes to more than 100 health conditions.

But what if there was a way to activate cellular function and youth at its source? What if you could “tune up” your body and get it running at the cellular age of a 20 year old? Guess what – you can!

Protandim is a daily dietary supplement that combats oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation. Oxidative stress happens in everyone. Protandim significantly reduces oxidative stress through Nrf2 activation. Nrf2 regulates survival genes.

Oxidative stress, generated through the process of living life (eating, sleeping, breathing, exercising), is inevitable for everyone, but LifeVantage has the solution: Protandim, the Nrf2 Synergizer, the most important dietary supplement of our time.

Comprised of natural plant ingredients
, Protandim is a patented, science-based, research-backed formula that has been researched, tested and validated by renowned universities and institutions--the only supplement clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40 percent in 30 days.

Protandim activates Nrf2, which communicates with cells, instructing them to do what they're already designed to do: up-regulate "survival genes," genes that enable cells to survive in the face of stress from free radicals and other oxidants, and down-regulates other genes that promote inflammation and fibrosis to help the body function at an optimal level.

Protandim Activates the Antioxidant Defense
Superoxide dismutase, better known as SOD, is an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. This enzyme was discovered by Dr. Joe McCord, Chief Science Officer at LifeVantage. SOD is turned on by Nrf2 and is made by most cells to detoxify superoxide, a compound that the immune system deploys to destroy invading microorganisms.

At the head of LifeVantage science is Chief Science Officer Dr. Joe McCord, a world-renowned scientist and pioneer in free radical biology. Dr. McCord is the chief scientist behind Protandim, our Nrf2 synergizing supplement, and has devoted his life to the study of free radicals and their role in the many health conditions associated with aging.

Exclusive LifeVantage U.S. Patents

Protandim is protected by four patents. Its patents protect the product from patent infringement--another party duplicating its formula and then creating and marketing an identical product. Every time a new patent is issued, Protandim, The Nrf2 Synergizer, is protected for an extended and additional period of time.

Protandim is protected by 4 U.S. patents:

1st Patent 

Patent No. 7,241,461 was granted July 10, 2007. "Compositions And Methods For Alleviating Inflammation And Oxidative Stress In A Mammal." This is a composition patent.  # 7,241,461

Ingredients and Synergy

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

 Milk Thistle Extract (Seed) 

The milk thistle is a tall, flowering plant with spiny stems and toothed, thorny leaves. Native to the Mediterranean, this plant can now be found throughout the world. It has been used for hundreds of years as a liver protectant and to support liver function and relieve digestive disturbances. Studies have been conducted since the 1970s on the plant's medicinal properties, and increasing research continues today on milk thistle's physiological effects and therapeutic properties.

 Bacopa Extract (Aerial Part)

Bacopa is native to the marshy areas of India and can now be found throughout the tropic and subtropic areas of the world. It can grow at elevations from sea level to 4,400 feet. Stems of this 4-inch-tall, 2-foot-wide plant are covered in tiny five-petal flowers. Recent research has focused on the plant's effects on memory, learning and concentration. In addition, there is research on the plant's ability to remedy anxiety, epilepsy, bronchitis and asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, and gastric ulcers. Bacopa may also protect against free radical damage in cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer.

 Ashwagandha (Root)

Ashwagandha grows in the drier regions of India, and though it has been used for centuries in traditional Indian medicine, it has gained popularity in the Western world. Traditionally, this herb was used a tonic to raise energy levels and improve general health and longevity. More recently, ashwagandha has generated interest in the study of its anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antistress and antioxidant properties. Studies have also focused on its effects on the endocrine and nervous systems.

 Green Tea Extract (Leaf)

Green tea has played a central role in Asian and Middle Eastern Cultures for 4,000 years. Although a number of varieties of this tea have been created, it has only recently become popular in Western cultures. This much-studied extract, produced from Camellia sinensis leaves in China, is used as a source of antioxidants for the preservation of good health. It is also used as an aid to promote weight management.

 Turmeric Extract (Rhizome)

Cultivated abundantly in Asia, India and China, as well as in other tropical countries, turmeric has a long history of use in Chinese and Indian medicines. The rhizome of this 3- to 5-foot-high plant is boiled, cleaned and dried before its therapeutic use. Traditionally, is has been used to treat inflammation, flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, hemorrhage and colic. Research is also under way to examine its ability as an antioxidant and its use in cardiovascular disease and gastrointestinal disorders.

Production of Protandim

Protandim is Poised to be the Most Revolutionary Medical Breakthrough of our Time

Protandim has been featured on ABC, NBC, PBS, appeared on the Dr. Phil show, appeared in “The Wall Street Journal,” and described in CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s book, “Chasing Life.”
Protandim is the ONLY product clinically-proven to reduce oxidative stress by 40%! And, we all know, reducing oxidative stress is the key to improving how we age and how our body fends of disease.
Protandim is a patented, anti-aging supplement specially formulated to combat oxidative stress and cell aging in your genes, where your DNA is damaged. Protandim is currently the most popular, most scientifically supported solution to aging and degenerative processes in the body.
