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 their daily antioxidant needs cannot be fulfilled by consuming any amount of blueberries, dark chocolate or red wine. Effective antioxidant protection absolutely requires adequate production of the body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Protandim contains a synergestic formula that has been clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress. Protandim currently has six United States’ patents, 1 Australian patent, 1 Chinese patent.
Protandim does not contain any banned or controlled substances. Every lot of Protandim is analyzed and certified by the Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) to assure that Protandim does not contain any banned or controlled substances.
No, they are not “certified” organic. However, they are all harvested in their natural pure environment.
Yes, the raw materials are tested for: Pesticides/Herbicides; Heavy Metals; Active Compound in 5 Active Ingredients (for example, we test Bacopa for Bacosides and Turmeric for Curcumonoids); All Microbial tests; and, Efficacy/Bioavailability.
No, the blend of ingredients and their special formulation is unique to Protandim and patented. The combination of ingredients creates a synergy that has been studied and proven to provide much more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplement. This 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.
No, there is no known mechanism whereby Protandim loses effectiveness over time. The formula has not been changed and bioactivity is monitored to maintain consistent potency with regard to the activation of the Nrf2 transcription factor – the mechanism by which Protandim works.
Protandim contains less than 4 mg. of caffeine. (For comparison, a Starbuck’s coffee may contain up to 150 mg. and “caffeine free” coffee may contain between 4 – 7 mg.)
Some western diets are lacking in certain nutritional elements, so multivitamin supplementation may be beneficial for some people. However, you can discontinue supplementing with antioxidants because Protandim is more effective at eliminating free radical damage than supplementation with conventional antioxidants.
No. Protandim is sold as a nutritional supplement, therefore, does not require FDA approval.
Yes. Canadian authorities will not allow for the sale of a health product to consumers without making a claim and providing prove that it is efficacious. In Canada the published claim is – ‘Protandim helps activates your body’s natural antioxidant defense mechanisms that help fight free radicals.’
