LifeVantage Protandim

LifeVantage Protandim


I have been taking Protandim every day for over a month now, and I personally feel like I am sleeping SO much better - I have had no insomnia episodes. I also feel like I have more energy some days and that my general wellness has improved.

So, you might be asking, what exactly is Protandim?

Protandim can fight 1 million free radicals per day. Taking Protandim increases the enzymes in your body that can eliminate 1,000,000 free radicals per second every second. 

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 formula that has been researched, tested, and validated by renowned universities and institutions. It is the only supplement proven in a clinical study to reduce oxidative stress in humans 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-regulate other genes to help the body function at an optimal level.

Protected by Six U.S. patents, Protandim is made of five potent botanicals:

Ashwagandha (root) – Ashwagandha grows as a short shrub with a central stem from which branches extend radially in a star pattern and covered with a dense matte of wooly hairs. The flowers are small and green, while the ripe fruit is orange- red and has milk-coagulating properties.
Traditionally, this herb was used as a tonic to raise energy levels and improve general health and longevity. More recently, ashwagandha has generated interest in the study of its antistress and antioxidant properties.

Bacopa extract (aerial part) – Bacopa extract is taken from the succulent leaves of a small creeping plant commonly found growing throughout damp and marshy wetlands of India. This herb, with its small white flowers, is often mistaken for a water lily, although the two are unrelated.
Recent research has focused on the plant’s effects on memory, learning, and concentration.

Green Tea extract (leaf) – Green tea comes from a tea plant native to Asia called Camellia Sinensis, the same plant that is the source of black tea. What makes green tea different (and green) is not the plant used, but rather how it is processed.
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.

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.

Turmeric extract (Rhizome) – Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. Native to tropical South Asia, it needs temperatures between 20 degrees C and 30 degrees C, as well as a considerable amount of annual rainfall, to thrive.
Traditionally, it has been used for flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, hemorrhage, and colic. Research is also underway to examine its ability as an antioxidant.
