Protandim is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40% in 30 days. In order to understand the magnitude of this supplement’s effects and why it’s important, we first need to understand what oxidative stress is, what causes it and why it’s a good idea to reduce this type of stress as soon as possible.
Oxidative stress is physiological stress on the body that is caused by the cumulative damage done by free radicals, like the browning of a cut apple or rusting. This type of stress is associated with over 200 diseases along with normal aging. Oxidative stress is produced by free radicals which are an especially reactive atom or group of atoms that has one or more unpaired electrons and are produced in the body by natural biological processes such as eating, or exercise. Free radical can also be produced by the introduction of an outside source from elements like; tobacco smoke, chemicals, or pollutants. Free radicals can damage cells, proteins, and DNA by altering their chemical structure.
Protandim, a supplement made of five plant ingredients turns on a set of survival genes in the body that typically don’t work as well past 20 years of age. These survival genes allow the body to produce antioxidant enzymes that get rid of free radicals and much faster than ever before. For example, if you took Vitamin C to get rid of free radicals, for every molecule of Vitamin C that you took, you would get rid of one free radical. In comparison, for every molecule of Protandim you take, you can get rid of at least one million free radicals. Thus, antioxidant enzymes produced by the body may be more effective and efficient than antioxidants from outside the body.
Over time oxidative stress levels can be reduced to childhood levels as the age-related increase in oxidative stress would be eliminated. The synergy of the five ingredients allows this degree of reduction. Reducing free radical damage to cells results in more normal cells in the body, hence promoting health and wellness.
