Everything changed last Sept...

A few months back I stumbled upon a product called Protandim, that you take only once a day, that made claims I couldn't believe.  I have been researching it ever since.  The thought that I could accomplish what this product does with one pill a day interested me.  People hate taking so many pills.
What is in Protandim...

Curcumin – this herb is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.  It is associated with a reduced risk for colon cancer, is helpful for some in arthritis, and a multitude of other inflammatory conditions.  I have been taking this herb for 3 years for its protective benefits for the colon.
Silymarin – commonly known as milk thistle extract is known for liver detoxification and modulation.  It is frequently used for Hepatitis conditions and skin disorders and is found in a multitude of detox products.
Bacopa – this is an East Indian herb used to ward off brain degeneration and dementia, promotes learning memory enhancement by regenerating neurons and synapses in the brain, and improvement in children with ADHD has been noted in studies
Ashwagandha – relaxes and reduces stress and at some dosages may help with insomnia and sexual enhancement (you know its then having a positive effect on hormones).   Strong anti-oxidant properties may reduce blood sugar levels therefore helpful to diabetics.  It also promotes SOD, levels glutathione, and promotes vascular dilation with its formation of nitric oxides.
Green Tea Extract – well known in the orient for many centuries as an anti-aging herb.  It may also help with arthritic conditions.  Studies show that it can lower cholesterol and inhibits cancer cell growth.  It is associated with weight loss and is found in many weight loss products.

The 5 ingredients together in one pill were allowed 3 patents because together there synergistic affect was 18 times more powerful than any of the herbs individually.

What Protandim does...
1)  Increases glutathione by 300%

2)  Increases activity of SOD (superoxide dismutase) and CAT (catalase) antioxidant enzymes by 54%

3)  48% decrease in plasma TBARS, a marker of lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress

4)  A 57% decrease in plasma osteopontin, a fibrosis-promoting factor linked to heart failure

5)  35% increase in beneficial, protective plasma PON1 activity, an enzyme thought to protect against atherosclerosis by preventing the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.

6)  Suppresses cancer tumors

7)  Provides more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplement

8)  Is an anti-inflammatory

9)  Has anti-fibrotic properties
How Protandim works...
The vast majority of antioxidant supplements sold today are "direct antioxidants".  Direct antioxidants attempt to neutralize free radicals through direct consumption of antioxidant pills, juices, or other products.  These products of highly concentrated levels of vitamin A, C, and E were previously thought to effectively eliminate free radicals but scientists are now realizing the limitations of direct antioxidants.  In fact, you would need to consume the antioxidants found in 375 oranges or 87 glasses of red wine or about 120 vitamin C tablets (500mg) a day to neutralize the amount of free radicals your body produces every single day.
With the recognition of the ineffectiveness of direct antioxidants comes the realization that there must be a better way.  And as is often the case in science, the better way has come to light as we have found a variety of naturally occurring safe products that signal your cells’ DNA to produce your own natural defenses.
The unique blend of phytonutrients in Protandim signal your body’s genes to produce special antioxidant enzymes, SOD (superoxide dismutase), and CAT (catalase) that work together as the body’s first line of defense against free radicals.*  These enzymes are “catalytic”, which means that SOD and CAT are not used up when they neutralize free radicals.  A single daily caplet of Protandim creates a cascade of your body’s natural catalytic antioxidants that are able to destroy millions of free radicals per second, on a continuous basis - 24/7.*
