Protandim was a really big step for me in my healing path. It was like other steps I took were tiny and this was an elevator taking me to the next level. When I was learning about it, I was impressed that it reduced oxidative stress, reduced inflammation, and literally works with the DNA to help it express in a balanced way. It specifically works with anti-fibrotic genes and anti-imflammatory genes as well as genes that help our own body create antioxidant enzymes. It also increases glutathione 300% which helps with the immune system and detoxifying. It has multiple peer review studies that have been done which can be found at www.pubmed.gov You type in protandim to have those pulled up, but start by looking at an investigative report that was done by ABC Primetime which is found at www.abcliveit.com Unfortunately, I can't give discounts on Protandim, but the company makes it so that distributors and all customers can get it at the same price by being on an autoship which can be paused at anytime.

"Protandim is a clincially proven supplement that provides substaintial benefits for healthy aging. This patented indirect anitoxidant therapy works in a very differnet way than conventionl foods such as red wine, oranges, blueberries or other popular antioxidant supplements. Unlike those types of products that have proven to be largely ineffective in reducing oxidative stress caused by free radicals, Protandim is an indirect antioxidant therapy, which stimulates the body's production of its own powerful antioxidant enzymes. Protandim works at the cellualr level, triggering cells sto naturally increase production of protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione synthase. A peer-reviewed human clinical study showed that after Protandim was taken for 30 consecutive days, important biochemical markers of aging were decreased by an average of 40%. The study also reported that these markers of aging were reduced in the subjects taking protandim to the level of a typical 20 year old. Protandim is currectly the subject of 20 scientific studies at universities and research facilities. The nature and stages of the studies vary."
Your body creates 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 - 3 septillion free radicals each day. Only 7,000 free radicals can be eliminatd from the antioxidant rich foods that we ingest because an antioxidant like that is on a 1:1 ratio. It is used up after taking care of the free radical. Protandim sends a signal to the natural enzymes in your body, which activates them to take care of a million free radicals every second of every day.
"The older we get, the more oxidative stress our cells naturally produce. Inflammation in cells also increases, as does fibrosis (the formation of scar tissue). Our body creates antioxidant enzymes to fight against oxidative stress. It also produces anti-inflammatory enzymes to fight infammation, and anti-fibrotic enzymes to fight fibrosis. There are hundreds of genes in each of these enzyme families and together they form what scientists call the 'survival genes.' An important enzyme activator called Nrf2 tells our bodies to make these crucial enzymes. However, as we age, our body makes less Nrf2, and subsequently, less of these "survival genes." Many of the so-called disease of age such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and neuro-degenerative disease like Alhzeimer's are all characterized by a decline in the so-called surival genes" says JOe McCord,Ph.D., a prfessor of medicine at the Univerity of Colorado. "The fact that Nrf2 is going down as we grow older is the reason the whole system gets out of whack." THE SOLUTION: "Fortunately, scientist have discovered a way to activate and elevate the Nrf2 in our cells using Protandim, the trademarked Nrf2 Synergizer. Protandim is made from five natural, planted-base ingredients that are weak Nrf2 activators on their own: milk thistle, turmeric, green tea, bacopa and ashwagandha. Together, McCord says, they have a synergy that is 18 times greater than the sum of the individual components. Every Protandim pill activates Nrf2, which in turn does its job of regulating the various genes that make the body function at an optimal level. "By elevating or activating the Nrf2 in our cells, you can return that entire balance back to the way it is in a young, healthy person," McCord says. "We know biochemically exatly what Protandim is doing." Protandim uses the body's own resources to stave off age-related declines by simply telling the body to do what it already know how to do- but do more of it. That principle is what really setsProtadim apart in the world of antioxidant supplements, McCord says. Many of the conventional antioxidants are adding foreign molecules that are intended to react directly with oxidants that your body is making," he says.
