LiféVantage is a science-based nutraceutical company dedicated to helping people achieve healthy living through a combination of scientifically validated products and an attractive business opportunity. From the perspective of maintaining health and wellness. the proper management of cellular stress is thought by many Scientists to be one Of the most important Of not the most important) aspects Of cellular metabolism.
We’ve known for more than SO years that the cellular basis of aging” is directly linked to highly reactive molecules called “free radicals” or “reactive oxygen species” (ROS). These ROS can react with and cause damage to cellular structures throughout the body, especially to cell membranes. DNA (genetic material), and mitochondrja (where cells generate energy). It can be scary to thitlk that our own body is producing these damaging molecules (also known as “free radicals” or ROS) as a normal part of living exercising and breathing. but it’s even scarier when you realize that ROS are all around us in the environment in the form Of sunlight, ajr pollution. Cigarette smoke, poor diet, and many other sources- Our bodies are constantly bombarded by free radicals, and constantly under threat of cellular damage and dysfunction. As this cellular damage accumulates. our cells cannot function properly. and we recognize the common symptoms Of “aging.” such as reduced energy levels. creaky jojntS, wrinkled skin, and many others that make us feel and 100k Older and worn out. LifeVantage has a solution to not only help reduce the signs of cellular aging. but to also help activate the Nrf2 pathway. Protected by patents, Protandim, the science-based, daily dietary supplement, activates the Nrf2 pathway, perhaps the body’s most important cellular defense mechanism. Protandim represents a major scientific breakthrough of the 21st century: Protandim has also been studied in more than 20 peer-reviewed studies published by renowned research institutions from around the world. But the research hasn’t stopped there. Protandim has ignited the interest of the scientific community. and Protandim research continues, with a number of studies recently completed or now underway.
Science not only supports our claims. but scientific research has identified cellular stress as a link with health and well- being, Thousands Of articles, peer-reviewed and published in respected medical journals around the world, such as The International Journal of Biochemistry & Cell Biology Volume 39, Issue 1, 2007, document the effects of “free radicals and antioxidants in normal physiological functions and human disease.
NRF2 ACTIVATION THE FUTURE OF CELLULAR PROTECTION AND THE FUTURE OF HEALTH
In the lite 1960s. Dr. McCord, the scientist behind Protandjm. discovered that the body produces its own protective enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is able to counteract the cellular damage caused by free radicals- In the middle and late 1990s. researchers in Japan and around the world discovered that our cells possess an entire system of protective mechanisms that counteract cellular Stress and Slow the aging process.
At the very center of this cellular protective pathway is a protein called Nrf2 that serves as a “master regulator” of the body’s antioxidant response, Soon after Nrf2 was identified, a flurry Of scientific discoveries began to show how Nrf2 also regulated genes involved in the production Of not only a Wide range Of antioxidant enzymes (including SOD, glutathione. and catalase), but also important proteins, and detoxification or “stress-response” genes. They all share in common the Nrf2 “switch” that enables cells to protect themselves from both internal and external environmental challenges. In effect. Nrf2 activation enables our cells to make their own “medicines” to help us survive and thrive in stressful situations.
Many scientists believe that Nrf2 activation is the “future” of cellular protection and health promotion. and. in this regard. LifeVantage is clearly leading the way. This foundation of naturally activating Nrf2 to “solve” the problem of cellular stress IS a fundamentally different way Of restoring balance in the body, one that enables LifeVantage to effectively move into related areas of healthy living.
PROTANDIM UNLOCKS THE NRF2 PATHWAY
An onslaught of environmental Stresses and biological assaults mounts over time, while our body’S ability to cope with these threats diminishes, This assault leads to disruption or failure in the function Of individual cells or groups Of cells, To fight back many people turn to high-dose antioxidant supplements and Juices with so- called super fruits and vegetables. A growing body of research shows these high-dose. isolated. unbalanced antioxidant supplements can do more harm than good, actually promoting cellular stress, rather than protecting against it, Dietary antioxidants are limited, because they only work meaning only one dietary antioxidant molecule is capable of neutralizing one free radical, a wholly inadequate strategy. They may be helpful to some small degree. but they’re incapable of sufficiently combating cellular stress. Taking antioxidants iS not the best Strategy—making the body’S own antioxidants is.
PROTANDIM UNLEASHES POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT ENZYMES TO PROTECT CELLS
Protandim’s specific formula activates the Nrf2 protein. also known as a “master regulator” of the body’s stress response. Protandim stimulates this protein. resulting in the body producing its own powerful. protective antioxidant enzymes: superoxide dismutase, hemeoxygenase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase, These enzymes function as potent antioxidants capable of neutralizing more than neutralizing more than one million free radicals or reactive oxygen species, It’s the synergy Of ingredients in Protandim that are effective in activating the Nrf2 pathway There are other benefits Of Nrf2 activation beyond cellular protection. Protandim helps the body repair and rejuvenate its own cells and detoxify keeping the master blueprint of the cell’s function intact. Protandim iS the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce cellular stress by an average of 40% in 30 days. Protandim has been shown to increase superoxide dismutase levels by 30%, glutathione by 300%, and catalase by 54%. When individuals were supplemented with Protandim for 30 days, the age-dependent increase lipid peroxidation was completely eliminated, (pid peroxidation) in an Older subject was reduced to the level of a 20-year old. This means the body is not only capable Of making its own antioxidant enzymes, but also that their production can be activated by Protandim to reduce cellular stress and may help protect against the aging process and several conditions in which cellular stress has been reported to be a contributing factor.
THE PERFECT HARMONY OF INGREDIENTS: PROTANDIM’S SPECIAL, PATENTED SYNERGY
Unlike high-dose antioxidant supplements, Protandim’s revolutionary formula is composed of a specific, proprietary ratio of plant extracts.
Turmeric has been used for 4,000 years in both Ayurvedic and chinese medicine to help a variety of conditions. Current studies show that turmeric helps fight cellular stress, reduce joint discomfort and aid digestion, Turmeric is known to contain natural phenols called curcuminoids.
Bacopa has long been hailed for its ability to enhance cognitive abilities. Bacopa has been important in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, used chiefly to enhance clear thinking and memory function. Studies suggest it provides strong cellular defense. It is also used to improve concentration, alertness and focus. The bacopa ingredients in Protandim is high in bacosides, the major constituents of which is the botanical compound called saponins.
Ashwagandha which has been called the “King of Ayurvedic herbs”, is an adaptogen ( a substance which enhances the resistance of an organism to various stressors) and has been traditionally used as an anxiolytic to help reduce chronic stress. Ashwagandha has also been used as a way to support memory enhancement and a sleep aid. The primary active components in Ashwagandha are a group of chemical compounds called withanolides.
Green Tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, particularly catechins, of which epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most abundant. Protandim’s green tea extract contains 98% polyphenols. Green tea has been traditionally used for many health benefits, including regulating body temperature and blood sugar, promoting digestion, improving mental process and improving cardiovascular health.
Milk Thistle has been used for 2,000 years as an herbal remedy to support liver, kidney and gall bladder function. Several scientific studies suggest that substances in milk thistle (especially a flavonoid called silymarin) protect the liver from toxins.
