What does Protandim do?
Protandim interacts with the DNA in your cells and causes the cells to make more of a set of genes called survival genes.
What are the immediate benefits of Protandim?
The immediate benefits of Protandim are experienced within several days. The biochemical markers of oxidative stress begin to decrease, and while there are immediate improvements, you may not sense that these things are happening - just as you cannot sense what your cholesterol level is, whether it is high or low.
Why should I take Protandim long term?
The advantages of taking Protandim over the long term are that it protects your body from the relentless progression of free radical damage as we age. The anti-aging aspect of Protamdim is one that accumulates over time so that the longer you take it, the more protection you will sustain.
Does Protandim interfere with other supplements?
Protandim does not interfere with other supplements. If you have a desire to supplement vitamins and minerals you certainly can continue to do that.
Can Protandim be given to children?
Protandim can be given to children. Dr. McCord states that children under the age of 20 generally do not need Protandim, unless they have an oxidative stress related condition.
Is it possible to have an allergic reaction to Protandim?
The only known reaction is if a person is allergic to one or more of the ingredients (turmeric, ashwaghanda, green tea, milk thistle or bacopa). These ingredients are in such small doses that reactions are rare and can sometimes be alleviated by half dosage while still receiving the benefits of Protandim
Can Protandim be taken with prescription medication?
There are no known adverse drug interactions caused by Protandim. We recommend always checking with your doctor prior to use.
Are there any known side effects associated with Protandim?
Allergy to one of the five ingredients
What are the ingredients to Protandim?
Ashwaghanda, green tea, turmeric, milk thistle, bacopa
Can I return Protandim if I want to for any reason?
Yes, there is a 30 day money back guarantee
What happens if I stop taking Protandim? Am I worse off than before?
If you stop taking Protandim, your body will return to its previous production of these genes within 14 days.
Will I notice any effects from taking Protandim?
Effects vary but common shared experiences are a stronger immune system and a greater well-being.
Will I need to take Protandim for the rest of my life?
Yes, if you want to continue to achieve the results of activating your body's expression of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic genes.
Are there any times for which Protandim is contraindicated?
Yes, during chemotherapy or after an organ transplant.
Are there any times it is recommended to increase the dosage?
If you are overweight otherwise it is sufficiently dosed.
Has Protandim been tested in experiments or clinical trials by independent third parties?
Yes, independent peer reviewed studies by Harvard/Massachusetts General, Louisiana State University, Virginia Commonwealth University are available at pub.med/gov and clinical trials on clinicaltrials.gov. Just type in 'Protandim'.
Does Protandim effect uric acid levels?
The induction of human superoxide dismutase and catalase in vivo study states that no statistically significant change in uric acid was produced. If your uric acid is measured on two successive days it will not be the same. The reference (normal) range for uric acid is 3.6 to 8.3 mg/dl. A 5% fluctuation shown in the study, even if it were mathematically significant (which it isn't) would not be clinically significant.
Do any of the Protandim studies show that it lowers other age related markers besides TBARS?
The last patent issued for Protandim was for the lowering of C-reactive protein levels - a blood test marker for inflammation in the body.
Does the human body build up a tolerance to Protandim where after a period of time users will need to increase their intake to achieve the same result?
No tolerance is built up to Protandim over time.
How does Protandim send a message to our cells to activate Nrf2? Can these pathways be blocked by heavy metals?
Protandim activates several kinase pathways that result in the phosphorylation of Nrf2, allowing its translocation to the nucleus where it binds to and regulates genes with an ARE sequence in their promoter. These pathways are not blocked by heavy metals.
If I purchase more than one bottle of Protandim at a time, will it spoil?
Protandim has a very long shelf life, >3 years. Storage at high temperatures may shorten that somewhat.
Can I get my TBARS tested?
Protandim's effect on TBARS is documented in two peer-reviewed published papers, one a human clinical trial and the other a mouse model of DMD.
TBARS is performed in highly controlled research labs, they do not offer the test to an individual, nor do they have a mechanism for charging for it.
What is Protandim?
Protandim is the only supplement in the world clinically proven (in a peer-reviewed, human clinical study) to reduce aging factors by an average of 40 percent. Protandim has been awarded three patents, is all-natural and is a proven solution in the race against aging.
This patented anti-oxidant therapy is many times more powerful than red wine, oranges, blueberries, juices or other popular antioxidant supplements. Protandim works by increasing the body's natural antioxidant protection at the cellular level, triggering cells to produce naturally occurring protective antioxidant enzymes such as super oxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione.
What is Protandim?
The definition of Protandim has changed.
When it was first formulated, it was considered by most to be an antioxidant supplement, although not a conventional one. But that is no longer an adequate description.
Protandim is actually a Nrf2 activator in the nutrigenomics arena. Nutrigenomics is the science of how dietary components interact with the genome, or DNA, to regulate gene expression. Nutrigenomics studies how the things we eat affect our genes. Nrf2 is one of the key proteins in the body and regulates approximately 500 of the 25,000 genes in the body.
Think of every gene as having a "dimmer switch." Nrf2 is the protein that can reach the dimmer switch. Protandim helps your body balance and regulate its 25,000 genes by "turning some up" or "turning some down!"
It isn't simply the most unique antioxidant supplement on the market, it's a Nrf2 activator.
I drink special juices and eat fruits and vegetables for my antioxidants. Why do I need Protandim?
Many people mistakenly believe their antioxidant needs are fulfilled by eating blueberries, drinking expensive "miracle juices", and applying antioxidant facial creams. What they don't realize is that in order to fulfill their daily antioxidant needs, it would require consuming ten pounds of blueberries, 15 pounds of dark chocolate and 87 glasses of red wine daily
As much fun as it would be to eat 15 pounds of chocolate daily, it would be impossible. Protandim is the only solution available to provide the necessary amount of antioxidants. Protandim, an all natural dietary supplement that holds two patents, has been proven to decrease oxidative stress by an average of 40 percent and has been peer reviewed in a published, human clinical study.
Why do people age and how can Protandim help slow that process?
Nationally recognized anti-aging expert Dr. Joe McCord explains, "Researchers and scientists agree that aging is the result of cellular deterioration caused by free radicals, which are rogue molecules. It is impossible to avoid free radicals because the food you eat and the air you breathe, as well as stress or even vigorous exercise, can stimulate cells to produce destructive free radicals in staggering numbers. With each year, a person's body becomes less effective at fighting free radicals. It's a vicious cycle, programmed into genes, which results in aging, disease and eventually death. A person's body fights free-radicals by producing its own antioxidant enzymes. But as we grow older, our bodies produce more free radicals and less of these special antioxidants to fight the battle of aging. That's where Protandim plays a critical role. Protandim boosts the body's own production of antioxidant enzymes at the cellular level with enough neutralizing capacity to eliminate the age-related increase in free radical damage."
How is Protandim different from other antioxidant supplements?
Instead of providing the body with additional dietary antioxidants (regular supplements fall into this category and are commonly called consumable antioxidants), Protandim works from within your body-- signaling it to boost its own production of two key antioxidant enzymes that already exist at the cellular level to help fight free radicals and cellular aging. This is why Protandim is significantly more effective than any other antioxidant on the market today; your body is actually producing the antioxidant power.
What ingredients are found in Protandim?
Protandim is an all natural, patented formula containing a special blend of five ingredients including Turmeric, Milk Thistle, Ashwaganda, Bacopa, Green Tea.
Can I take these ingredients individually and achieve the same effect?
No, the blend of ingredients and their special formulation is unique to Protandim and holds two patents. The combination of ingredients creates a synergy that has been studied and proven to provide thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplements. This new scientific peer-reviewed study was published in the journal "Free Radical Biology and Medicine" and it also clearly shows Protandim produces a 300 percent increase in glutathione, which is a key antioxidant and anti-aging factor.
Should I continue to take my other vitamins and antioxidants?
Many western diets are lacking in certain nutritional elements, so multivitamin supplementation is still beneficial for most people. You can discontinue supplementing with antioxidants, however, because Protandim is more effective at eliminating free radical damage than supplementation with conventional antioxidants.
Does Protandim adhere to the Good Manufacturing Practices Standards?
Yes Protandim is subject to existing food and dietary supplement laws, such as the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, dietary supplement Good Manufacturing Practices, and adverse event reporting requirements. The safety and purity of all its ingredients has been established through independent laboratory testing.
